March Favorites: Bachelor Arie Banned & #MarchforOurLives

Okay, so I know I always joke about the saying that goes “March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb,” but this year it legitimately did.

The beginning of the month was so rough, especially with all the non-stop snow storms. I could not deal. I don’t think I’ve ever been more annoyed with my life than I was at the start of March. Things mellowed out around March 20th or so, which was nice.

March brought some harsh realities to light in the pop culture and entertainment world, and rightfully so. Let’s take a look my faves for March 2018:

Favorite News Articles

1. The Bachelor‘s Arie gets banned from Minnesota. Damn straight. He deserves it after what he did to Becca.

2. #MarchforOurLives. Thank you, Pope Francis, for encouraging the youth to continue fighting to end gun violence.

3. “Shero” Barbies! I want one of each, please!

4. Chrissy Teigen brings an emotional support casserole on a plane. Brb, bookmarking this recipe for later.

Favorite Music

1. “Rotation” by Fickle Friends. Now THIS is what I call feel-good music! This band sounds like Great Goof Fine OK and Haim had a baby. OMJ. I so want to see these guys in concert!

2. “Figure A” by Tim Atlas. So old school funk I can’t handle it. Ah. Maze. Balls.

3. “Something” by Henry Green. I’ll definitely succumb.

March Favorites: Meme Makeup & Goldroom’s Inverno Mix 2017

March was some real drama this year, man.

February 2017 might have been intense, but March is definitely taking the crown for Drama Queen so far. Everything just went bonkers for unnecessary reasons, specifically in news, TV and YouTube. The music world churned out some spectacular tunes in time for spring, and the remixes that were released this month were on fire!

Here are my overly dramatic favorites for March 2017:

Favorite News Articles

1. Meme makeup is now a thing. Halloween 2017, here we come!

2. This professors’s live CNN video conference was interrupted by his kids running into the room. This is what happens when you work from home.

3. Casey Affleck’s laundry load. How did he even find clothes to put on to go outside with such a huge laundry bag?!

4. Mindy and Cory Booker flirt it up on Twitter. Your classic “girl makes fun of boy because she likes him” scheme.

5. Apparently Trump can’t eat Russian salad dressing without causing a stir. Do no evil, eat no evil.

Favorite Music

1. Inverno Mix 2017 by Goldroom. Lot’s of goodies on this mix. The level of chill on this one really hits the spot.

2. “Chained to the Rhythm (Hot Chip Remix)” by Katy Perry ft. Skip Marley. As if the original wasn’t already amazing, Hot Chip went and made the chains tighter.

March Favorites: Adele’s Beard, “Watch Me Do” & ‘The Catch’ Premiere

march faves

So March didn’t really go out like a lamb for me. I’d say it was more like a really sassy alpaca.

March was filled with a lot of great music, and sadly, a lot of season finales. I’m really looking forward to the summer when all my shows come back!

Here are my favorites in the world of pop culture for the month of March:

Favorite News Articles

1. Adele’s beard. The fact that she named it is killing me.

2. The royal family went skiing. The family portrait is super adorbs!

3. The Rock holds on to Zac Efron for dear life while on a motorcycle. “Hold me close my tiny dancer…”

Favorite Music

1. “Watch Me Do” by Meghan Trainor. Sassy. James Brown would be so proud.

2. “Do It, Try It” by M83. After hearing this song, I realized the Junk would probably end up being a very weird album, but it isn’t really too weird…

3. “All Out in the Open” by Mesita. It’s a little bit of Ed Sheeran mixed with indie and I love it!

4. “Where Would I Be” by Gwen Stefani. The hook in this song is everything.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Taylor Swift’s mom’s dog wants some food. It’s already been taken, buddy.

2. Selena Gomez in rollers. Still trying to figure out how her hair will look once those rollers get taken out.

3. Henry Cavill went unnoticed in Times Square. I would have been beyond pissed if I’d walked by and then found out later in the day that it was him!

Favorite TV Episodes

1. The Catch, “The Pilot.” That painting (“Alone Together” by Maria Kreyn) is literally their relationship.

2. Pretty Little Liars, “Hush…Hush, Sweet Liars.” So many things happened between the couples in this episode that I don’t even know how to begin to feel.

3. Limitless, “Bezgranichnyy.” I’m not sure if I like Brian with Lucy Church or Piper Baird more.

4. Bates Motel, “‘Til Death Do You Part.” I actually really think Norma and Alex are great for each other.

Favorite Youtube Videos

1. Mike Falzone standup. I’m totally seeing him when he comes to Astoria in May! Let’s see if the audience is anything like this one LOL.

2. James Corden was L.A.’s mayor for a day. Of course he would want to cut all the ribbons.

3. Tanya Burr talks in her sleep. Husband Jim Chapman tells all.

Enjoy all the April rain.
