Diversity or Tokenism – Golden Globes 2018

Updated on
Hollywood is a very reactionary community. One which tries to please the masses while balancing what will actually make them, consistently, a large amount of money. Hence why it’s not just the quality but popularity which often determines who does and does not get nominated. Leading to the topic at hand: Are we in an age where diversity has become the norm, or has tokenism just evolved into affirmative action? Over the years, a lot of firsts have happened for Black, Latino, and also Asian actors. Just last night Aziz Ansari because the first Asian male actor to win in…

This Month on Wherever I Look – July 2017

Looking Back At June Numbers wise we are still living in a very post Thirteen Reasons Why boom era. However, new things are moving their way up the top 10 lists. For a moment there was this vibe, as I posted my collection of .gifs to maybe make that a thing again. It is still being considered but just like it isn’t always that easy to find a quote which really says something, there isn’t a huge amount of moments which make me want to take the time to make a .gif. Which can be a very simple process, but a…

This Month On Wherever I Look – June 2017

Updated on
Recap of May After the hype of Thirteen Reason Why died down, there was a bit of a nose dive in terms of views. Not a significant one, but still noticeable. But that can be contributed to the fact I skipped covering Sense8 as well as House of Cards. Instead opting for more movies and specials. Which, while they got a short pop for a few days, none really had much longevity. So, with the past behind us, let’s look toward the future. Here is what is currently planned to come This Month on Wherever I Look – June 2017.

Article: How Social Media Probably Hurts Actresses More Than Helps Them

Updated on
This article was inspired by a series of tweets by actress Kiersey Clemons on April 18th. You may know Clemons for Dope, Neighbors 2, Extant season 2, and a slew of others things.  To start off, her venting began due to the unequal pay between women of color and white women. For, as has been a problem for years, white women are the standard for inequality. Something which I’m not going to dig into because that is not my lane. But one of the many points Ms. Clemons was trying to make is that pay isn’t determined by talent as…

Response Article: Why Thirteen Reasons Why Doesn’t Romanticize Suicide (Contains Spoilers)

Updated on
You know, when anything is a hit people feel the need to jump on it and scrutinize it. Now, as I hope you see with this website, not all scrutiny and criticism comes from people making rash opinions but informed ones. Those of which come from a place that reminds us that not all entertainment should simply be seen as just that. Leading to the topic at hand. IndieWire, specifically writer Jude Dry, notes that without noting access to a suicide hotline, alongside the idea of, based on Gene Siskel’s 1973 interview with the Chicago Tribune, that they quote, there…

February Review So in February I finally decided to put money into what I spend a vast amount of my time. I checked out PC Mag’s “The Best Web Hosting Services of 2017” and originally started with Dreamhost. However, as their servers went down the day after I registered with them, I was scared off. So I checked out GoDaddy, which I regret, and then went to my current host 1&1. From there, I installed all the things wordpress formerly took care of for me. Something which wasn’t easy and certainly had a learning curve. Though, with that said, I’ve…
