Video of the Day–An 80’s Romance

A little while ago I finished reading Brotherhood in Death and I needed something fun and light because I was so ridiculously angry (let’s just say the review is going to have one hell of a trigger warning when I sit down to right it in the morning), so I headed over to YouTube to find something fun …

Video of the Day–Love in the Afternoon

It seems this is a week for soap weddings on this blog.  I hadn’t planned on posting this video today, but when my mom called me yesterday with the news of David Canary’s passing at the age of 77, I felt compelled to write this post. For those that don’t know who that is, Canary …

Video of the Day 10/27–In Honor of Gilmore Girls on Netflix

I have to admit that I am a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan and I shipped Luke and Lorelai like crazy back in the day.  I remember writing on my old Myspace blog about how I wanted a guy just like Luke (I still do, but he can have a little Richard Castle thrown in).  For today’s …

Okay, so maybe November has always been my favorite month (Sagitarius, baby!), but NaNoWriMo has made my birthday month the coolest month on the calendar.  If you don’t know what NaNoWriMo (or NaNo for short) is, it is a month long writing marathon, starting November 1st and lasting until November 30th.  During this time, people …

Video of the Day: A Landslide Into Love

Glee has been one of my favorite shows since the very beginning (I still can’t believe I couldn’t pay attention to the pilot when it originally aired because I was writing my final paper for a Russian Politics class–I got an A), and while it has gone a bit downhill since a lot of the …

Video of the Day–A Mouse and a Love Song

Today’s video is inspired by my own writing.  I have decided to do some work on one of my projects today and this song fits perfectly.  My characters, a time traveler from the 21st century and an English nobleman from the 19th, will eventually be separated by 150 years and the only comfort they can …

Video of the Day–Sometimes All It Takes Is One Kiss

I know I haven’t posted anything is a week, but things have been a little bit crazy here since late last Thursday night and then I was working on my novel.  As a matter of fact, I have only read 1.5 books since last Thursday (the first two books in the Smythe-Smith Quartet by Julia …
