  1. From the old thread: @Angalin Asked :Has anyone tried Bite Beauty lipsticks, out of Toronto? I heard good things about their Amuse Bouche lipsticks. I have the Kimchi colour and it's outrageous and I love it. It's exclusive to Sephora I think. I found it creamy enough and didn't bleed (thankfully) but I layer moisturizing lip balm on first so that might be why. The colour didn't make it past dinner but again, could be lip balm related.
  2. I made it three chapters in and I've put it aside. I'll get back to it before the last book comes out. What I'm currently reading : Warcross by Marie Lu What I'm waiting on: One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake - followup to Three Dark Crowns; All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater; The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo, which is a rare physical book purchase because it looks so pretty! What is piling up on my TBR from earlier posts: Hunted, Now I Rise, Flame in the Mist, This Savage Song/Our Dark Duet Is anyone reading/read Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo?
  3. Fans watching Newcastle or Liverpool or West Ham in the States had the pleasure of waiting almost til the end of the first half to be able to log in and watch their teams on the pay for service that was once part of our cable subscription. What a failure. It would have been different had NBC charged up front when they won the contract some five years ago, but they didn't. Their big marketing win was EVERY game, EVERY week. Anyways, blah. But now that Liverpool fans have been inconvenienced, perhaps they may rethink this.
  4. Not really answering your specific question but I'm upset that her character took that arc based on the leaked original script. Bah. This article deals with the sex in the book and the handling of Beverly's character in this movie. http://www.vulture.com/2017/09/how-the-new-it-movie-deals-with-the-child-orgy-scene.html
  5. Anyone use Glossier products? I'm mesmerized by the Instagram ads for their Cloud Paint blush.
  6. I finished Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom this long weekend. Enjoyed them immensely. I would look forward to a movie version. And now I've cleared the deck for Tower of Dawn coming out tonight. Happy Chaol Day, @lady narcissa!
  7. Guys, is the Rangers FO shitty? And I mean lacking in humanity? Things are kind of life and death in Houston so baseball shouldn't even matter but the fact the Rangers wouldn't trade home series with the Astros just seems incredibly cynical and shitty. Very shitty. They are 14 games back of the Astros and would need more than a series later this month to boost their chances to contend. They're competing for revenue at this point and would no doubt lose out on $$$ having a last minute series played out in Arlington now. But they would have had a chance for great optics and maybe an opportunity for charitable donations that would have brought people out to the park.
  8. Apparently when something like this happens: http://www.pajiba.com/book_reviews/did-this-book-buy-its-way-onto-the-new-york-times-bestseller-list.php This is absurd. Gaming book sales for a movie deal. Well, you can't fool YA social media. Especially when it knocks off the best YA book of the year from the top spot. They will set you straight. I expect this is common in other genres?
  9. I bought it. It sat in my cart for days. The pull was just too much.
  10. EW.com has some coverage on this as well. I went so far down the wormhole on this I forget where I read it, but Lani Sarem is suspected of writing some terrible Harry Potter fanfic called My Immortal which has a passage that apparently lines up with a passage in the book. And the cover art looks stolen from another image. Again, forget if I read it on Twitter or the Pajiba article. Just amazing stuff, linking together so much early 2000s pop culture pieces. Also, The Hate U Give is on of the best books I've read this year, YA or not.
  11. Sterling got a card for that?
  12. I'm hoping force a well-placed meteor to take them both out. Mayweather, lady beater that he is, shouldn't have a career left. And the mouthy McGregor with his fuck you pinstripes and racist quips needs to lose his spotlight. https://theundefeated.com/features/floyd-mayweather-conor-mcgregor-no-good-guys-here/

  14. Seriously. I was going to post in here after the 8th ended but I didn't want to jinx the perfect game. Luckily, Logan Forsythe did that for me. And then that 10th. <sigh> But, 90 wins today.
  15. It seems it's being discontinued?
  16. I follow Luke Evans on IG, and the behind the scenes photos and stuff look very interesting. I had no idea it was based on a series of books. Silly me, seeing as pretty much everything is.
  17. Ugh. These books were awful. Well, as far as I read into the second. I liked the premise but the execution not so much. I do very much enjoy Matthew Goode but I think I'll pass.
  18. The thing is, the Dodgers have had the highest payroll on starting day the past 4 years. Before that? Yeah. For how long? Yeah. Fourteen years. http://www.stevetheump.com/Payrolls.htm And this from the year that the Orioles actually tried to buy a championship and failed. Miserably. Or the Marlins? https://sports.vice.com/en_us/article/gvapxy/throwback-thursday-when-the-florida-marlins-burned-down-a-world-series-champion Anyhoo. Let's see how it ends this season.
  19. I love a good list, as my white board at work demonstrates and the post-it notes that litter my life. I'm not so great with follow-through.
  20. A well-known anti-semite had the ear of the national donkey for over a year. And that's with donkey's precious daughter converting to and marrying one of that faith. So what did you expect to happen here? * *Not directed at Ini or Xray. I needed more wine than usual to get through GoT. Anyways, directed to the 'these are fringe elements' folks. The fuck they are.
  21. Er, that's a bit much. But at any rate all your premature exasperation is just that until they win. But it's a nice distraction from *looks down down down down down down the standings* Huh. How about that.
  22. The Pirates and Cards are hanging out with the LLWS teams in the bleachers and clubhouse during elimination games. I am loving this so much. Also, Go Canada! As for our heroes The Dodgers as Evil Empire, that's adorable. If you're a Giants fan go for it. Sour grapes, rivalry, whatever. They aren't owned by a Steinbrenner. Who did they add this year to 'buy' their championship (which they haven't won yet...yet) versus who worked their way up from the minor-leagues? Who is playing on this team (and making a significant contribution) that hasn't been in their system or on the roster the past two, three, four seasons? Hyperbole is fun. A know-nothing Nationals 'fan' (who apparently was an O's fan before they came to town) suggested to MC and I the other night that Kershaw pitched FOUR TIMES during the playoff series against Washington. The fuck? And whose only other comeback was that the Nats took the first series this year 2-1. Yeah. Anyways. Go ahead and hate on the Dodgers. Is it because they finally have a balanced starting rotation, which they pretty much had before Darvish? Is it because they finally have some middle relievers? Is it because they're going to have another ROTY candidate? Is it because even when they are down, they find ways to win? Is it because you have a problem with hobo-looking gingers? Is it because you don't know who Chris Taylor is? Is it because they're doing it WITHOUT Kershaw? Is it because Puig has matured into the player we knew he could be? Is it because you can't say anything bad about Dave Roberts? Is it because when you watch this team, you can clearly see the comraderie and fun they are having? Yup. Pure evil. Save it for the off-season. Everything has yet to be determined.
  23. I pictured Hagrid as well! I'm looking forward to this after enjoying the first two books.
  24. Money talks, as you know.
