September Favorites: #DoTheLilo & ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ Live-Action Series

September 2018 is one of those months I’d prefer not to remember. It just reinforced my hatred for politics.

Also, RIP Laurex 😥

Anyway, let’s just jump right into my favorites in pop culture and entertainment for September, shall we?

Favorite News Articles

1. #DoTheLilo. Umm, okay, sure. Idk if this dance will really catch on here though, Lindsay. Maybe in Greece?

2. A live action version of Avatar: The Last Airbender is coming to Netflix! I coincidentally JUST finished watching the animated series with my bf 😀

3. Maroon 5 is performing for half-time at Super Bowl LIII. I AM SO HYPE.

Favorite Music

1. “Entropy” by Supa Bwe ft. Dounia. The fact that this featured artist is from Queens is making this even more amazing for me!

2. “Damn” by Christine and the Queens. “What must a woman do?” you ask? Where do I begin?

September Favorites: Maye Musk & “Underdog” by BANKS

September 2017 was pretty groovy.

Besides the fact that NYC weather refuses to fully transition to fall, September was pretty good in terms of pop culture and entertainment. The summer ended with a splash of great music, which I can never complain about. Also, the fall TV premieres did not disappoint.

Let’s get to my September 2017 favorites!

Favorite News Articles

1. Maye Musk is our newest Covergirl. Can I be her when I turn 69?

2. Sean Spicer made an appearance at the Emmy’s. This award season is going to be wayyyyy too much fun.

3. Starbucks baristas dread the PSL frenzy. “Can’t they just put this into IVs and pump it directly into basic white girls’ veins?”

4. This college kid got hit by a ceiling tile while in class. AND HE DIDN’T DEMAND FREE TUITION. WHAT?!

5. Leo DiCaprio’s happy run. So many reasons for happiness.

Favorite Music

1. “Underdog” by BANKS. We got a wild one over here, boys.

2. “For a Ride” by NOVAA x LO. Can NOVAA go on tour and come to NYC sometime soon, please? Thanks.

3. “24/7” by The Neighbourhood. Because I needed something in addition to “Sweater Weather” to listen to this season 🙂

September Favorites: Baseball Game Proposal, Wild Front’s “Rico” & ‘Suits’ S6 Finale

September 2016 will officially go down as the month of the worst celeb separations.

First it was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Then Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber. And perhaps the worst was the recently wed Colleen Ballinger and Josh Evans.

My heart is a million pieces.

I still found a few things to smile about during the month of September. Let’s try to forget all this sad love nonsense and focus on the fun stuff in pop culture and entertainment from September 2016:

Favorite News Articles

1. This guy dropped the engagement ring in the abyss that is the baseball stadium stands while proposing on the Jumbotron. How awkward would that have been if it was never found!

2. Rihanna dressed in a furry red heart. Right after that romantic drama with Drake at the MTV VMAs…

3. Lady Gaga is performing at the 2017 Superbowl Halftime show! This is going to definitely be one to watch.

Favorite Music

1. “Rico” by Wild Front. If I had a car and a license I’d probably “drive all night” to this song. Cannot wait for WIld Front to release new music!

2. “Mieux Que Tout” by Paradis. Paradis’ album was so well waited for. They needs to come to NYC soon.

3. “Tough” by Goldroom. I’m demanding a re-release of West of the West. All of the songs need to be sung by Goldroom himself! What is this nonsense!

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Victoria Beckham dancing in Times Square. It bothers me that I work so close to Times Square and I was not around for this.

This month brought a ton of fall season premieres and amazing music from some of my favorite artists. Here are my favorites in pop culture for September:

1. “Can’t Feel My Face” (Cover) by Karmin. I was waiting for something awesome to happen in this cover and it did, and it was hella good. (see what I did there?)

2. “FOOLS” by Troye Sivan. Words cannot explain how proud all of YouTube is of Troye Sivan.

3. “Jaded” by Disclosure. I think this is the first song I’ve heard with Disclosure’s vocals and me really likey.

4. “I Can’t Be Your Superman” by Skylar Spence. I think I listened to this song like 100 times already since it came out. And what do you mean you can’t be my superman, Ryan?

5. Edy Ganem is pregnant! AHHHHHH! Looks like she won’t be on Devious Maids for a little while…

Favorite TV Episodes

1. The Mindy Project, “While I Was Sleeping.” I’m so happy this show didn’t die because of FOX. And OMJ engagement!

2. The Late Late Show with James Corden, Episode 77. Of course I’m going to be partial to this episode because I watched it live. And come on, BRADLEY COOPER DANCED. HOW COULD I NOT LOVE THIS?

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Rhett’s people watching while in the park. I can’t tell which of these three stories is the funniest.

2. Grace Helbig does Chester See’s makeup. He looks like an Asian girl!

Happy October!

Fall is here! Time for pumpkin spice, caramel apples and all those great autumn things!

This month was a series of ups and downs. Here are some of my favorites for September.

2. Kate Middleton is pregnant, but that’s not all. The Duke and Duchess want to name the baby Elizabeth Diana Windsor if it’s a girl! Don’t get too morning sick, Kate!

3. Maryland student skips school for Beyoncé‘s birthday. Talk about dedication, man.

4. Lady Gaga breaks up a fight in the crowd at her concert in Belgium. Little monsters like to bring out their claws, but Mama Gaga ain’t havin’ it!

Favorite Music:

2. “Blame” by Calvin Harris. Oh, my gosh I cannot wait until his new album comes out in November!

4. “Slow Down” by LIGHTS. Little Machines is so good! I just love LIGHTS so much!

5. “Brain in a Bottle” by Thom Yorke. This whole Torrent album release was a huge surprise.

4. Marcus Butler’s roomates. That Pat Sajak hair though…

Goodbye, September, hello October leaves and wind!
