Kate - I think I have that book but have never read it.  I bought it like 5 years ago and packed it away in a box and never thought about it until now.  I should go find it.

Right now I am reading "Can you keep a secret?" by Sophie Kinsella.  Have loved all of her books and love this one.  Could not put it down last night

It really is.  I found out this weekend that I must have lent Season 1 and season 2 to a friend and I have no idea who it was.

Not sure when I will be able to tak ea look at it.  Sorry Cherilee

Post Grad far from top of the class


Too often we get movies depicting the plight of 20-somethings fresh out of college, struggling to find themselves in the world. "Post Grad" is perhaps the closest fictional account of what it's like to trudge through the first few months after graduation and the discoveries some find within themselves.

That being said, what "Post Grad" must rely on for its strength, ultimately proves to be the weakest element of the film.

We meet Ryden Malby (Alexis Bledel) fresh out of college and beginning to embark on what she believes to be the great journey of her life. Unfortunately, her dream job is given to her nemesis and she is forced to move back in with her parents, thus delaying her journey.

Her family is a far cry from a Norman Rockwell painting. Her father Walter (Michael Keaton), mother Carmella (Jane Lynch) and grandmother Maureen (Carol Burnett) are about as off-centered as you can get and the one constant she finds is her friend Adam (Zach Gilford).

She goes on with her life for the next few months in mediocrity until her dream job opens again and she given the chance of a lifetime. Only this time she'll be going alone because Adam has decided to attend college at Columbia. And in true romantic comedies, Ryden gives up everything and chases after the boy to find her happy ending. Oh dear, what will the feminists think of that? Boy over career -- tisk, tisk, Ryden.

Any story hinges on the believability of its lead actor, or in this case, its actress. That is where the trouble lies with this picture. Bledel just can't carry the film; it's as simple as that. She a fine actress, but in "Post Grad" her performance is a little stiff and at time unbelievable.

The two actors that are tops are Keaton and Burnett. Both have lines that are devastatingly funny and Burnett's ability to blend craziness with sincerity and heart is unsurpassed. The end scene that Keaton has with Bledel just before she leaves for Columbia provides one of the best lines in the movie and is a real "father" moment. He's an actor who is often overlooked and it's a shame.

The disc has the typical deleted scenes and the offers up some features tailor made for the film's subject matter. Know Your Strengths: Career Advice, How Not To Get a Job, A Guide to Moving Back Home and Dress for Success are just some of the bonus featurettes. The Real Life Advice with Alexis Bledel and Zach Gilford is a nice touch to the supplemental materials.

Final Cut: "Post Grad" is a movie that falls somewhere in the middle of the whole coming of age story of the 20-something generation. It's has elements that work, but it also has times where you find it very unbelievable and not true to itself.

Press Tour Scoop: Lauren Graham at home on 'Parenthood' - 01.10.2010

by Michael Ausiello

Lauren Graham is back at press tour promoting a TV series and, suddenly, all is right with my world.

Three months since replacing Maura Tierney on NBC’s Parenthood, the ex-Gilmore Girls MVP raved about her new gig this afternoon during a Q&A with the cast.

“I felt like it could be a collaborative, positive experience and it has exceeded all of my expectations,” she enthused. “It’s just the most fun day at work.”

By all accounts, the feeling is mutual. Exec producer Jason Katims said the addition of Graham lightened the tone of the show significantly. “Lauren brings so much to the role,” he said, “and one of the things she brings is this incredible humor.”

Regarding Tierney’s health, Katims said the actress — who bowed out after being diagnosed with breast cancer — is “in treatment” and “doing really well.”

Parenthood debuts March 1.

Hey Amber,

Very late response to your question, I bet you have figured it out by now! Apparently it is quite hard to do on your own hair but with lots of persistance it is possible to curl your hair with a straightener. I have tried and failed but I plan one day to sit there and persist until I nail it!

Have a look at this There is a video and everything!


B xxx

Oh thank you QueenB.  I haven't mastered it.  I will take a look at that and see if I can get anywhere with it.  Thank you so much.

my question is this: my have thick curly hair, but would really like to try out the a-line bob!  do you have any advice for layers, do you think i can pull it off, etc?

I would talk with a hairstylist about this.  Go in and ask them if it is going to work and most importantly tell them why you like the cut first.  If the features you like in the cut are not going to come out because of your hair type they will suggest another cut.  I hope that helps

I believe it disappeared around the 4th or 5th episode.  Very very early on in the first season.  I am planning on doing another marathon (watching all the seasons starting with the first) very soon.  So I can check to make sure but as I recall it disappears after the first disc in the DVD box set
