Monday Musings: Hamster Butt Edition

First off, Happy Memorial Day! Hopefully your extended weekend has been full of fun and time with family and friends. Time for musings!


With Game of Thrones being on an off week, this recap from Seth Rogen and Snoop Dogg was perfect.

Seeing these people talk about movies that freaked them out when they were kids made me realize we were all terrified at the same time.

Completely guilty of “feeling old.”

And finally, hamster butts are currently all the rage in Japan.


Monday Musings: Green Day Edition

Happy Monday and St. Patrick’s Day to you! I don’t really celebrate the holiday more than maybe wearing something green, but if you partake in the traditional celebrations, hopefully it was a great weekend of green beer. And if you want to make cute, tooth-rottingly sweet St. Patty’s Day treats, check out this easy recipe. Time for musings!

If you want to get into the St. Patty’s spirit today, check out this playlist of 24-hours of Irish music. Wow. Here’s a shorter version if you prefer.

Petcube, the Kickstarter-funded device, allows you to watch, talk and play games with your pet through a mobile app anytime and anywhere. I seriously want this and think I’ve convinced the hubs on how much fun we’d have watching our dog when we’re at work. Preorder is available now and they plan to ship in May!

I finally saw Despicable Me 2 this weekend, which of course was delightful. So naturally, I watched every Disney character voice this guy did to the annoying earworm that is “Let It Go” from Frozen. His Winnie the Pooh had me ugly laughing.

This is a bit overwhelming, but this compilation of the 1,001 movies to see before you die is pretty awesome if you have 10 minutes to kill.

Monday Musings: Award Season Edition

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a fun weekend. I was finally able to see Prisoners (really good), watched the SAGs and enjoyed some old school bowling. Time for musings!

I love award season and can’t wait for the Oscars. But I did enjoy these brutally honest movie posters for some of this year’s best film nominees.

Speaking of the Oscars, check out the original song nominees. I’m rooting for Pharrell’s ultra catchy “Happy.”

Attending Sundance is definitely on my bucket list. These are the 15 most buzzworthy films from the festival this year. I can’t wait to see Whiplash, Wish I Was Here, Whitey, Life After Beth and Life Itself.

And finally, these superstitions from around the world were pretty interesting. I’ve been saying “rabbit” on the first day of the month since middle school because one of my friends was super convincing. Funny to finally find out where that actually came from!

Monday Musings: Favs Edition

Happy Monday! Hopefully you had a nice weekend celebrating the moms in your life and maybe even catching the Gatsby movie. Time for musings!


This subway map of the best movies of all time should have been in last week’s musings batch and was too good to not share.

I’ve felt overwhelmed by the amount of fitness trackers out there. But with Misfit Shine scheduled to hit the market in June, I may have found the one for me.

I have a slight obsession with Target, along with a million other people I’m sure, and stunts like this remind me of why the brand is so cool. And why I always manage to find a reason to visit Target and leave with things not on my list.

Check out this hilarious Craigslist ad created by an advertising copywriter trying to sell his beat-up bike.

And finally, the Arrested Development season 4 trailer is out and I can barely contain my excitement. May 26th can’t get here soon enough!
