Who doesn’t love traveling to new places? Unfortunately, some places we would like to visit don’t exist. Here is a list of ten fictional places we wish we could visit this summer.
Why? Because the Ewoks are adorable and badasses. They helped defeat the Empire.
Why? “Why not?” is the better question. Quidditch, Apparating, pet owls that are house-trained … Living in the wizarding world would be incredible, but Hogwarts has the added bonus of being the coolest boarding school ever. Hufflepuff pride!
3) Neptune, CA
Why? We would seek employment at Mars Investigations, but secretly, we would visit Neptune to make out with Logan (and Duncan).
4) The Red Universe
Why? Altlivia and Lincoln. Enough said. (Bonus: lots of blimps.)
Why? We want to slay some vampires and drink tea with Giles. (Of course this would be before the town was swallowed up by a Hellmouth. Obviously.)
6) Jurassic Park (with Tom Hiddleston)
Why? Because we want to see Hiddleston communicate with the velociraptors.
7) The New York Institute
Why? Because being a Shadowhunter would be freaking awesome. But mainly because we’d want to meet Jace, Clary, Alec, Simon, Magnus, and every other butt-kicking character from the Mortal Instruments series. And afterwards, we’d stop off at the London Institute circa 1878 to swoon over Will Herondale.
8) Stars Hollow
Why? It may be a small town, but it’s full of big characters. Sure, there are downsides to everyone being involved in everybody else’s lives, but really it’s like having a huge, hilarious family that all live within walking distance of each other. Plus, we would love to eat at Al’s Pancake World, no matter what kind of cuisine he was serving that week.
Why? Where else can you have coffee with Snow White and Captain Hook? I bet if we stuck around long enough, the folks from Star Wars would eventually show up. Storybrooke is basically Disney World without roller coasters.
10) Pawnee, Indiana
Why? Sure, the city almost voted to allow Sweetums to take over their water supply, but what this place lacks in common sense, it makes up in friendship. Also, we will visit any city that had a Star Wars filibuster.
I finally started watching Orphan Black.
A few of my friends are fans and are always singing its praises so I told myself I had to watch it this summer. I didn’t have much knowledge going in. I was expecting clones and superb acting from Tatiana Maslany but I was not expecting so many shocking moments in the first episode. I had so many questions by the end that I decided to list my ten “WTF” moments watching ‘Natural Selection.’ I have a feeling there will be more in future episodes. I’m excited!
1. When Sarah encounters a girl who looks exactly like her
2. When the doppelgänger jumps in front of a train
3. When Sarah transforms into Beth and speaks in an American accent
4. When Sarah discovers multiple birth certificates
5. When Sarah learns Beth is a cop
6. When Sarah drinks the soap
7. When Art breaks into Beth’s car
8. When Katja Obinger appears
9. When Katja is shot
10. When Katja’s cellphone rings then Beth’s
For some, June 22 is any other day but at popculturenexus.com, June 22 is BIG day. It’s Meryl Streep’s birthday!!!!!!
So, how do you celebrate the day the world was given one of the most talented actors to have ever lived? Do you have a Meryl movie marathon? Do you listen to the Mamma Mia! soundtrack on repeat? I guess it doesn’t really matter what you do as long as you do it with passion because that’s what makes Meryl so astounding. Whether she is rafting down the Salmon River or ruthlessly leading a fashion magazine, Meryl breathes life into each character she portrays because she is passionate about her craft. Her passion is palpable on the screen which makes it easy to believe her relationships with other characters. To celebrate Meryl’s birthday, we decided to look at one of her greatest love stories, Out of Africa (1985).
She once had a farm in Africa but we still have 20 feels we can’t get over.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
In honor of Father’s Day, we wanted to take a moment to commemorate all of our favorite TV dads. Between them, they’ve had to deal with everything from sibling spats to alternate universe apocalypses, and everything in between. So join us in tipping our hats to these fantastic fictional fathers…
Keith Mars (Veronica Mars)
George Clooney’s pet pig must have sprouted wings and learned to fly. That’s the only thing we can think of to explain the news that the renowned bachelor is actually engaged. We never thought we would see the day People Magazine‘s Sexiest Man Alive would put a ring on it it…again. George Clooney was married once before in 1989 but the relationship ended four years later. Since then, the salt-n-pepper fox took a vow of bachelorhood, which explains our surprise when E! reported his engagement to Amal Alamuddin. We are still in shock! It is truly a phenomenon like Halley’s Comet, every 75 years the world witnesses a Mrs. George Clooney.
Here is a list of 10 things we thought we would see before Clooney got married again.
