I know the chances of this ever getting read are slim. I know the chances of it being replied to are even slimmer! I just needed to come back and make my mark!

Read it!  Replying!  Feel free to drop by more often!  I'm checking more frequently now, in hopes of catching up with old members.  Smiley


Back atcha. I still look in every once in a while, wish there was some way to relive the best times.

I just read Sophie Flack's Bunheads. I admit I wouldn't have read it without the Gilmore Girls connection, but it was an amazing story about the harsh realities of ballet with kickass characters on incredible personal journeys. There's a lot of ballet jargon in it, but it's really readable, no ten-mile sentences or weird grammar. I'd definitely recommend it for a rainy weekend read.

I can totally hang with this show. It's actually based on a novel by an American Ballet Company dancer, and the technical details are all grisly and accurate. Of course I was thinking about GG when I saw it the first time, and I'll be honest, I might never have watched it without the Dorothy Parker label. But I'm already hooked on the characters and the story so far is nutty and sweet like Gilmore Girls, but also completely unexpected and complex.

Has anyone else seen it? I think Drella was the neighbor in the Pilot.

Has it really been three years? Good God...

Emily's daughter finally graduates, not like she wanted but she knows Lorelai's done something to be proud of. At the end of the day, I think her mom's really her biggest fan.

Lorelai's and Rory's twin meltdowns hit me at a strange point in my life. Just trying to do everything on my own and needing someone, finding out to whom I run when things fall apart, who I really need when I feel like I'm failing, was kind of an eye-opener. Seeing my Gilmore Girls go through it again was a sturdy reminder of how much I should cherish the very special person and people who propped me up when I needed it the most and without whom I might not have made it to where I am.

I was just rewatching the entire series and I couldn't get over the famous repetitive reference to the fun flask. Hah, Lorelai must have stashed it at the appearance of Emily's bloody marys. I also loved the way Marty referred to Richard as Obi Wan in honor of his advanced naked manness.

Still spoiler free, three years after the show was canceled. That's org netiquette at its finest.

Has it been long enough to double post? lol... cause then I won't cry.
Anyway, the divorce is final, so I'll be back around again.

Happay Friday, everyone. It's been crazy at my house, but we're back on track now.

I also thought the advanced characterization of Emily was clever. I mean, not everyone could be absolutely certain that no one who knew Pennilyn also knew about Lorelai's Dragonfly, but she snaps out total recall on the guest list for Rory's sixteenth birthday party when Rory reintroduces her to Paris. Hah, how on earth did Richard think he could keep anything from her?

It's funny, Emily's jealousy plays out a lot like Luke's jealousy of Christopher in FFy town, so why does she extract so much more sympathy? Is it more okay for a wife to be insanely jealous over a stupid lie than a boyfriend?
27  Gilmore Girls / General Discussion / Re: A Gilmore Revisiting - The Viewing Party (Bringing Tuesdays Back) on: April 30, 2009, 09:42:21 pm
BTW, if you can't watch it, you can still read the script.
28  Episode Discussion / Season 4 / Re: 4.09 - Ted Koppel's Big Night Out on: April 28, 2009, 05:54:23 pm
That was a singularly hilarious glimpse into Luke's self-esteem issues. The town found Brian peculiar and revolting, but Luke actually identified with him, seeing himself at that age in Brian's social vagueness and repetitive use of the same T-shirt. Ha, at least finding he couldn't stand "himself," reminded him he was a different person in the present!

Hey ho, it's Tuesday again. I really enjoyed it this week, yea, though I have discovered Criminal Minds and House was good again last night. I think I ran into Dani257 on xanga, too, that was fun. If I'm the most knowledgeable org member, she was the Goddess of GG research.

Hey, I just thought of something. Rory learning to tap her inner savage to critique seemed like a throwback to Lorelai, like in Season One where she reluctantly learned things like flirting, popularity, and standing up to authority at her mother's constant, grating insistence. The way she tore the ballet apart without knowing anything about ballet just to get Doyle's attention was a lot like the way Lorelai shredded Luke's pretense of a sane relationship without any relevant expertise about relationships, marriage, or moving in with a partner.

And in the same way, Rory and Sandra are in the same boat, each learning how to cope with her first bad review. Luke and Sandra may be right that the Lorelais can be real jerks sometimes, but no matter how badly motivated the criticisms were, they were realities that the "dancer" and the "married guy" would have had to deal with anyway to follow the paths they were on.
