I’m Not A Hipster

by Ellie McHale

I think I need this movie in my life:

I think I get the gist of the film. People creating & playing music indie-status & coping with adversity (however adverse said adversity is has to be seen, I guess).

But, let me leave you with this for now:

“Whiskey keeps me good…” [Truth.]

“Your face is illegal.”

“I’m not a hipster…” [Seriously. I’m not.]


by Ellie McHale

Um. Yes. I think I need to see this…
That is all.


Dorothy Gale may be the star of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, but the Wizard himself, a fellow Kansan, also has a tornado-to-Oz journey worth sharing. Oz: The Great and Powerful, a prequel to L. Frank Baum’s novel, tells the story of Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-town magician dreaming of greatness and a life somewhere over the rainbow. Cue a tornado, which takes him away from his black-and-white world to a land of color—a nostalgic nod to the 1939 film.

The film, directed by Sam Raimi (Spider-Man trilogy), looks magical—complete with Emerald City, munchkins and flying monkeys (which look even more terrifying than those in the original film). The trailer shows Oscar meeting three witches: Theodora (Mila Kunis), who calls herself the good witch, her sister Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams). They have been waiting for “the great wizard from Kansas” to defeat the…

A Life In Paperback

Two years ago, my mother bought me a book for Christmas. It sat on my bookshelf up until recently. Now, I am kicking myself for not reading it when I received it, as it has turned into this amazing phenomenon. On October 1st & 2nd, PBS hosted a four hour documentary, the visual tie-in to the book I was gifted.

As “Half The Sky” sat within walking distance of me for almost two years, I always made a note to start reading it. Now, with the PBS documentary aired and an amazing movement brewing, I vow to read the book & watch the documentary, all the while taking notes.

Hip Hop Heartbeat, Part One

by Ellie McHale

There has been a dvd sitting on my dresser for a month, maybe longer. Ages ago, I found the trailer for it while watching some of my favorite hip-hip artists on YouTube. You know, the likes of Common and The Roots and N.E.R.D., et cetera. Upon seeing the trailer, I put the flick in my Netflix queue and pushed right to the top…

Unfortunately, my mind wandered elsewhere. I still haven’t watched it! Believe me, I do want to watch it. But, it is 1.00am and I’ve got stuff to do in the morning.

As this documentary caters to my inner hoodrat from East Los in the 90’s, I have a good feeling that I will enjoy it. Tribe was gold standard for hip-hop in the 90’s. Everyone loved them. We still do…

I can’t wait. I’m so excited I might even start watching it now…
