I love a good ole’ goofy gif, so here’s a collection of a few of my favorite film and TV-related ones.

10 Film & TV Costumes for Halloween

I wrote this blog post last Halloween, but since I haven’t had the chance to come up with more ideas for film & TV-inspired costumes, I decided to repost it. This year my boyfriend and I are getting nostalgic AF and dressing up as Forrest Gump and Jenny for Halloween—who are you dressing up as?! 🎃👻🧡 … Over the years Halloween has evolved into one of my favorite times of year. I’m not the type of person who engages in fan communities and does cosplay, but I find so much joy in figuring out a costume and putting it together. Basically, Halloween preparation is a form of self-care for me – as I’m sure it is for most folks who enjoy this time of year. Even if I don’t have solid plans, I know that I’m going to assemble a costume and wear it somewhere, anywhere, simply because it’s fun and makes me happy. Below are 10 film and TV-related costume ideas that I was inspired by. Some are relevant, others not so much, but they’re all fun …

My Favorite TV Intros of All Time

In no specific order, here are a few of my favorite TV intros of all time. Be sure to share some of your favorites in the comment section below! Freaks and Geeks If you haven’t seen Freaks and Geeks yet, I advise you do so, because it’s a spectacularly fun show. How the hell did it only last one season? Anyways, this intro is great because it succinctly introduces each of the main characters to the audience, and shares a little bit about them based on how they react to the experience. The music is awesome, the premise is great, and above all, James Franco’s moment is magical. Portlandia No TV show intro makes me happier than Portlandia‘s. Prior to watching Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s series I had been a fan of Washed Out for a while, so when I first watched the show and heard “Feel it All Around” as the featured theme, I was ecstatic. I’ve only spent a couple of days in Portland, but from what I remember, Portlandia‘s intro captures the essence of the city perfectly. House of Cards …

My Favorites Of TV Sketch Comedy

Here are few of my favorite sketch comedy shows and some of the sketches that I adore: Check It Out! With Dr. Steve Brule Starring John C. Reilly as Dr. Steve Brule, Check It Out! With Dr. Steve Brule is a spin-off of  the Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! The show premiered on Adult Swim in 2010 and has since garnered a cult following. The show’s aesthetics are similar to that of a public-access television show, and John C. Reilly is absolutely hilarious as a naive, awkward, and perpetually confused TV host. Key & Peele Key & Peele stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, both of whom are former cast members of MADtv. There are many reasons to love Key and Peele, but what strikes me the most about their show is how creative, witty, and distinct their sense of humor is. Key and Peele premiered on Comedy Central in January 2012. Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! (with Zach Galifianakis) To be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of the Tim & Eric Awesome Show – but I do love every skit Zach Galifianakis is in! Damn is he …
