US Glamour dubs ‘Now You See Me‘ actor Dave Franco their ‘Next Big Thing’ in the July issue of the magazine. Photographer Nicolas Moore captures the 28-year-old heartthrob, accompanied by Next model Chaun and styled in retro streetwear from Osklen, Rag & Bone, What Goes Around Comes Around, Levi’s and Band of Outsiders.

Dave talks about his ‘Funny or Die’ videos making him a hit with the ladies.

“I don’t think my Funny or Die videos have turned any women onto me, considering most have homoerotic undertones! Some people would call the videos twisted, which they are, but I don’t walk around trying to offend people”, Dave points out to Glamour.

Film Talk: If I Stay


A different view from my own.

I’m so sorry it’s taken such a long time to get this review up. I’ve tried in a multitude of ways to make an actual vlog because…there’s stuff to say. I mean, Jamie Blackley? Hubba hubba. But technology, at least of the video posting variety, is not my friend. And yeah, I probably could have gotten my twelve-year-old to figure it out in two seconds, but there this thing called pride, you know?  Also, I didn’t want her to watch the video. So there’s that.

Have you seen the film, If I Stay yet? And if so, what did you think?

I saw it the night before the official release at one of those 7PM early showings. There were no dudes in the theater, which, while not surprising, I found funny. I went with two dear friends who love the books, and we had our tissues in hand.

I have…

So much for the starving-writer stereotype. In a story published Monday, Forbes listed the best-paid authors in the business—and their incomes are enough to make just about any office drone reconsider their boring desk job for a life of fiction writing.

Film Review: The Words

the words

The Words

Released: September 7th, 2012 (USA)

Watched: August 21st, 2014

Genre: Mystery Romantic Drama

This movie, quite simply, enchanted me.

Everything about it was just so elegantly classically beautiful: the cinematography, the background music, the romance, the cast, the intriguing storytelling, and the mesmerizing story.

The Words reinforced to me why I want to be a writer so badly! The torrent of emotions that drive the out pour of words from your system, and the feelings that are evoked as you pour yourself into your writing. That’s what I love.

I was even more drawn into the story with the flawless orchestral music playing in the background, setting up the scenes and making watching them so dreamy. The actors wrought out the highs and lows of their characters’ lives so magnificently that the lines between fiction and reality were almost blurred for me. And is it just me, or were all the main characters ridiculously good-looking?! Watching their story was like witnessing art come to life. All three romances depicted were swoon-worthy – the struggling love-sick writer (Bradley Cooper) and his supportive adoring wife (Zoe Saldana), the dreaming idealistic young man (Ben Barnes) and his exotic tragic wife (Nora Arnezeder), and the brilliant enchanting older writer (Dennis Quaid) and his enchanted intelligent young fan (Olivia Wilde).

The ending was a mystery, and leaves the viewers to figure it out for themselves, according tot heir own interpretation. I feel like Olivia Wilde’s character was supposed to represent the viewer in her theory for how the writer’s story ended. I agree with her. It was a tale of morality, and how the writer had to pay the ultimate price for his lack of integrity in stealing another man’s work, words, and life.

A relishing 9/10 for me.

Note: Wasn’t Ben Barnes absolutely DELISH in this film?

Favorite Quotes: 

The Old Man: We all make choices. The hard thing is to live with them, and there ain’t nobody that can help you with that.

Clay Hammond: You have to choose between life and fiction. The two are very close, but they never actually touch. They’re two very, very different things.
