You guys, first of all, a friendly PSA from yours truly – don’t eat an entire package of tortellini before bed since it says to use or freeze by that day, because your dreams will turn into a Yorgos Lanthimos movie – there were black cats and one white kitten who had somehow broken into my apartment, box cutter-wielding people hanging out menacingly by swimming pools, and (perhaps most terrifyingly) a flying bedazzled hat which kept biting me like a duck, and which could open locked doors and windows to continue doing that.

Welcome back to another weekend, you guys! And I would venture to say it is MUCH needed considering the trash fire that is our country, and our planet, at this stage of 2017. Personally, I’m amped that The Craft will be screening at Metrograph, ’cause if one thing makes ALL of the things better, it’s some good old fashioned witchcraft-based female empowerment, AMIRITE?! Before we get into details about that and everything else, here’s some stuff you might’ve missed on BYT this week if you were trying not to have a full-blown existential panic attack LOL!

My love for Australia has always been more or less unbridled, but I could never let myself fully get lost in the passion due to a little thing called marriage inequality. BUT NOW…now that 61.6% of the population said “FUCK YOU, OTHER 34.8%, WE VOTE YES!” I can become the true biggest fan I was […]

My love for Australia has always been more or less unbridled, but I could never let myself fully get lost in the passion due to a little thing called marriage inequality. BUT NOW…now that 61.6% of the population said “FUCK YOU, OTHER 34.8%, WE VOTE YES!” I can become the true biggest fan I was always meant to be.

WHY HAS THIS WEEK BEEN AN ETERNITY. I’m v. amped that it’s almost the weekend, partly because of the aforementioned dragging feeling, but mostly because the programming is SO GOOD.
