Re: “Victoria Aveyard's Red Queen will hit the big screen soon

Is there a reason that this book series is so much like the series The Grisha Trilogy and the Six of Crows series? Both of these series are from Leigh Bardugo. Victoria Aveyard even has two characters that are named Caz and Brecker, while in Leigh Bardugo's series Six of Crows, there is one character named Kaz Brekker. I was just wondering if Victoria and Leigh were, like, working together? Or did they copy each other? Just wondering.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Boxcutter on a Silver Platter

I love your recaps. This show is far better than the pale imitation that follows it on Bravo. Landon-- stop simpering. Get a real job and accomplish something. Cameran-- you continue to be the Greek chorus for this group-- you're great. Naomie-- you have lost all respect for Craig (which is at least somewhat understandable). Break it off. You are sniping at him, and it is not helping. You two are NOT meant to be together!

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Boxcutter on a Silver Platter

I missed your stream of consciousness bullet points at the end. Don't let a lady having a bad day change your style. I've had bad days too and I gave the universe and its inhabitants permission to ignore any and all comments I make during those beast-days. But I enjoy your point of view, whatever you decide to do.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Boxcutter on a Silver Platter

I have a few things to add to this. First, Thomas needs to find a woman that is a bit older more mature and not kathryn or landon. Second, i believe kathryn has some type of mental disorder because she is too volatile and her moods fluctuates too easily. She should be monitored constantly. Third, craig is getting on my last nerve with his inability to see what he's causing in his own relationship and he needs to mind his own business. Lastly, i hope shep gets his life together because he seems to be a nice guy but has no responsibility and nothing to do or look forward to

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Boxcutter on a Silver Platter

With coverage like this no one needs to watch the show. Although I did love the look on Thomas's face when Landon put him in his place so glad I did not miss that. Was glad Landon had a more normal time for herself. Thomas is too mean to have a women. What he said to Kathryn was so uncalled for. You cannot want a women to put you on a pedestal when you cannot treat her right. You love your booze and partying more than you are capable of loving anyone. Booze is the oldest story of self destruction there is.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Boxcutter on a Silver Platter

And people in hell want ice water. Don't think they will get it any time soon and I hope the same for your 'critiquer' who was having such a hard day and thought she would go forth and be bold in the world by criticizing someone who makes us laugh. If she's not laughing, nobody is!
Landan .you crazy girl! Just take one thought in your head and try to keep it there for more then 5 seconds. This changing your story and your mind everytime a seagull cries will have no one betting on you. Not even the gamblers who bet on how long a chicken can go without a head. ( by the way, I haven't heard from your dad about that land job. Again, I can send my resume through email ON MY COMPUTER so there's that.)
Thomas is bereft He knows that is the last time two women will ever fight over him even if he does continue to ignite the flames with stories of his being taken advantage of by a 21 year old...
Whitney's mother needed two more martinis after watching Whitney put the fan in the Maharajahs hand. As if the Maharajah would actually fan himself. Has he learned nothing!

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Boxcutter on a Silver Platter

I love your columns! I do watch the show, but I look forward to your recaps just as much, if not more, than the actual episodes. I think your column is perfection--everything from your homages to film/music/literature to your effort to pinpoint a theme for each episode, even though it's clear that the Bravo producers themselves do not put that much thought into the show. Even your photo captions are hilarious. Don't let the opinion of one person muffle your zaniness. I literally laugh out loud when I read your writing, and I think a lot of other people do too.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Ain’t that Tuff Enuff

Oh one more thing! For Landen's dad. I am free to work on your real estate venture. Hell. I will even pitch a tent and stay on the property 24/7 for a couple of thousand dollars ( yes. His exact words.Not too proud to say I know this.)
I can even send my resume digitally as well as on paper which, besides the whole bloodline thing, I think makes me a much better candidate

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Ain’t that Tuff Enuff

How much is JD paying Bravo to say " Gentry and Coke"?
Villain of Candyland! Spot On and may I just say hilarious?
How come there aren't many commenters? C'mon Carolinians, you know you want to!
Well, your definitely getting some notice on some other sites in NY from people who say " Yes. Dignity and pride, all Important, but it never hurts to play in.the mud once in a while!
With that. I don't like Shep. No way , no how! I didn't like him when I thought he was just a spoiled brat who couldn't handle a little competition , now, Its a simmering hate because he doesn't seem to understand the word no.
If Thomas want using and getting drunk right along with Katherine, I will Butler(Butleress?) for Patricia for free for two weeks.
Oh heck, Ill do it anyway, as long as I get as many Bourbon Slushiest I want ( and an inside scoop on what goes through Whitney's mind when he chooses his wardrobe)
Now. Katherine said Thomas passed his drug test because he shaved the hair on his body, which begs the question, Is the hair on Thomas' head fake?
Well. Keep em coming!

Re: “Orange is the New Black evokes the Charleston shooting, but fails to follow its own message

Wrong premise. It's not a gag. It's alluding to how common those devastating incidents have become.

Re: “The Exposure Myth

I would donate work, and get frustrated with the $$ they got, auctioning the pieces.

I began just donating cash, and keeping my work.

Lately, though.. there's a cause I am devoted to that I DO donate to. They get the $$ I believe the work to be worth, and it gives me pleasure (though the 'exposure' part is ludicrous) to be able to help them make some money. For them, I donate without expectation of anything.

it's a well that's running dry, generally. New paradigms are needed. Artists seem to donate work that haven't sold for a while (understandable) and the whole auction becomes tired looking.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Ain’t that Tuff Enuff

Always look forward to the recaps. What a train wreck. I wonder if some of this is not scripted....I could hv sworn Daddy Langdon said $100,000 commission. Not $200,000. But what is $100,000 in the scheme of things. Craig did not know the word "Lothario"? So not surprised he did not know "pescatarian". I think Naomi should give Craig his "walking papers". How could he not know the word "lothario" and go to law school? Hmm. Poor Shep. What a waste. He is a bright guy, but boy does he have issues. He needs to see a shrink. He says he has no feelings? He doesn't care? Ha! I cannot wait till next week. I hv a girlfriend who I got hooked on this show and lives in Palm Springs, CA. She is loving this hooey:) Guess you don't have to be a native to get hooked. I send your column every week.

"Arriving at an empty lot that closely resembles someone's last-known whereabouts".....Dustin, thank you, your recaps are better than the show itself! Even though it's a hot mess, it's still my favorite guilty pleasure.

Re: “Orange is the New Black evokes the Charleston shooting, but fails to follow its own message

So I just need to know if I am justified in being outraged and personally offended by this or not. Because I could go either way but I don't want to get it wrong, you know? But it's kind of rare that you get a chance to be outraged by something that you can really claim to be connected to.
