Burgess announced the wine on his Instagram page and has since posted enough about it to make any wino think about trying it. I look forward to strutting around my house with a glass (or just the bottle) in hand singing “pinot noir, caviar, Myanmar, mid-sized car” as fiercely as Titus Andromedon himself.

The chic wine can only be purchased in a few stores, but can be bought online here. Shipping is not yet available to all 50 states, so make sure you check before ordering! Before entering the website it will ask you to confirm that you’re over 21 by clicking either “yassss” or “no.” The prices of the bottles vary based on how many bottles you plan on buying, but the more you buy the cheaper they are per bottle! Bottles go for $24.99 each, $23.49 each for three or more, and $19.99 each for six or more. There is a cost to ship as well so don’t be surprised if your order for one bottle comes close to 40 or 50 dollars.

My bottle is still in the mail, but if you’ve already gotten yours feel free to comment and let us know what you think!

Snapchat with Celebs: Who should you be following?

Snapchat with Celebs: Who should you be following?It’s no secret that celebs are all about social media. First, the trendy thing was Twitter. Then, everyone started making Instagram accounts (and thank God for that — what would we do without the knowledge of what Chrissy Teigen eats at every meal?). Now, it seems like everyone who’s anyone has Snapchat. Although it can get a little TMI with certain people, Snapchat is actually a pretty cool way to keep up with your favorite celebrities on a more personal level. Check out these famous accounts if you’re looking for some serious entertainment!

Shay Mitchell (@officialshaym)

Shay is one of my favorite Snapchatters. She’s the type of person that is always doing something, and she seems to always be willing to share her adventures with her fans. As of recent, her snaps have been filled with book signings for her new novel, Bliss, as well as with fun photo shoots and filming of Pretty Little Liars.

Ryan Seacrest (@ryanseacrest)

That’s right, everyone’s favorite host has a Snapchat! Here, you can get a behind-the-scenes look at red carpet events and see footage that you won’t find on any televised coverage.

Justin Bieber (@rickthesizzler)

As we’ve learned from recent events in Bora Bora, the “What Do You Mean?” singer is certainly not camera-shy. The Biebs loves taking pouty selfies and snapping clips of his fans at various concerts.

Calvin Harris (@calvinharris)

I’ll be honest and admit that I’m here mostly for any romantic T-Swift shots (which have yet to appear on my phone screen), but in the meantime, the DJ is quite active on Snapchat nonetheless. He’s a bigger fan of the selfie than you might guess, although he tends to take a more humorous route than Bieber, often poking fun at himself and those around him.

Rihanna (@rihanna)

I love Rihanna’s Snapchat stories. They’re just what you’d expect from her, if a bit more toned-down. Last week, she showed her fans a full day of wine tasting with her mother and friends and gave us a peek inside the primping process before a big event, because who doesn’t want to know what the day in the life of Rihanna is like?

Kylie Jenner (@kylizzlemynizzl)

I think it is safe to say that Kylie is the queen (or shall we say #kingkylie?) of Snapchat. She’s probably the most active out of everyone on this list, and shares a large variety of snaps, as well. On a regular day, you’ll probably see her getting her hair and makeup done, playing with her dogs, videos of her friends, shots of her many expensive cars and famous boyfriend Tyga hanging around her house. In short, Kylie never fails to keep her fans in the know.

Let us know what your favorite Snapchat accounts are below, and be sure to give some of these celebs a follow!

What’s the big deal about…Tom Hiddleston?

Tom Hiddleston is like that kinda cute guy friend who you’ve never paid too much attention to, but all of a sudden it dawns on you years later that they are literally the perfect man and have been right under your nose all along, but you were just too dumb to pick up on it.

DUMB.

So. Dumb.

When I first saw Tom in Thor, he honestly didn’t phase me. I’m sorry to those of you who have been on the Hiddleston bandwagon forever and are shooting laser beams out of your eyes as you read this. I know, I was blinded by Chris Hemsworth as Thor. Loki was, to me, like a whiney little brother jealous of his older sibling who went way too heavy on the hair gel to get it into such a slicked back style. I got it, he was supposed to be the villain we love and hate at the same time, and I kinda liked and kinda hated him, but I just wasn’t gungho. When The Avengers franchise hit theaters, I began to get it more. Yeah he was hot, yeah that evil grin was pretty sexy, but something still wasn’t hitting the mark.

Flash forward to the present after a viewing of Crimson Peak, and yeah, I get it. Hear that, fangirls? I get it. Tom Hiddleston is now the object of all my affections. So what if it took a period piece and 19th century get up for the Hiddleston awakening to occur? It’s happened and life will never be the same. If you haven’t figured out why Tom is so great, let me enlighten you.

Tom, the Actor

Tom is an amazing actor. I’m not just saying that because we’re getting married someday, but because it’s the straight up truth. His versatility is quite remarkable, going from a maniacal Norse god to a vampire to a destitute Victorian inventor with a murky past to the voice of a loveable pirate. He’s believable in every role, not allowing the trace of any of his other characters shine through. But Tom’s not just great on film. He’s a wonderful stage actor as well, and has had starring roles in a number of Shakespeare productions, proving both his knowledge and understanding of the classics in addition to his badassery as a number of physically demanding characters on the screen. The intensity he can bring with a single stare is welcomed on both platforms.

Tom, the Humanitarian

While there are many celebrities who donate time and money to numerous charities and relief organizations, Hiddleston rises above many with his level of dedication. Hiddleston is incredibly involved with UNICEF UK. He’s made several trips to suffering African nations in order to raise awareness, and regularly writes pieces on what can be done to improve conditions in Western Africa. Need an example? Check out this moving piece he recently wrote about how the leaders of the world need to answer the call-to-action in South Sudan. In addition to his humanitarian efforts in West Africa, he’s participated in Live Below the Line (living on roughly $1.50 for a week), spoken out about ALS, and is a self-proclaimed feminist.

Tom, the Brit

For those of us who adore everything and everyone British, you can’t get much better than Tom. First, let’s talk about that accent. I don’t care if it’s a shallow follow up to his humanitarian ways, his accent is perfection. Tom is your quintessential British gentleman, a modern day Darcy if you will (and God knows so many of us are restlessly tossing and turning waiting for our Darcy to show up). Having a soft spot for Cambridge due to a study abroad trip, it delights me to no end to picture Tom strolling around its quaint and lovely campus during his days as an undergrad. To top it all off, Tom later studied at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (whose notable alumni include Sean Bean, Kenneth Branagh, Ralph Fiennes, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Anthony Hopkins, Matthew Macfadyen, Peter O’Toole and Alan Rickman, just to name a few). So Tom, what do you say to a cuppa?

Tom, the Lovable Goofball

To round out the package of an intellectual, talented in many ways, and caring humanitarian, Tom also has a fantastic sense of humor, wonderful singing voice and smashing dance moves. The personality on this man seems astounding. In any interview, Tom captivates the entire audience. Whether he’s sharing a joke about the text message he received from a friend, showing off his dance moves, singing the bare necessities or imitating a velociraptor, he always manages to remind fans that he’s a down-to-earth, goofy guy worthy of our love. To top it all off, Tom is always down to dress up as Loki and amuse unsuspecting kids.

So, if you’re like me and late to the Tom Hiddleston party, hopefully I’ve convinced you to give him more than a passing glance. Be warned, if you do watch Crimson Peak, you will fall in love because he so convincingly falls in love, and you too will find yourself wanting a doting Englishman with a (spoiler alert) nice tush. You keep being the wonderful human you are, Tom.

An Exclusive Interview with ‘Donny!’ star and comedian Emily Tarver

Emily Tarver, an actor/comedian who has studied improv firsthand from the greats – Amy Poehler, Seth Meyers, and Rachel Dratch, to name a few, is getting ready to premiere her latest role in Donny!, a new USA comedy series. She has starred in television, commercials,and is an Upright Citizens Brigade comedian. So, would you believe me if I told you just a few years ago she was working in NYC as a social worker?

Let’s take it back.

Emily Tarver has always wanted to get into comedy and acting but, like so many of us, thought her dreams were out of reach.

“I always wanted to, in the back of my mind,” Tarver explained of a career in comedy, “but I thought it was ridiculous and impossible!”

You see, she was studying Spanish and Psychology at the University of Texas when, during her senior year, she decided to take an improve class.

“I thought, oh my gosh, improv! That’s the thing I’ve been doing my whole life and never knew it,” she spoke of the experience.

After taking her very first improv class, Tarver knew what she was meant to be doing and set out to create her new life. “I was like, thanks for putting me through college Mom and Dad, but…. I’ve got a new plan!”

Tarver then moved to NYC in 2004 and began taking classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade, a theatre for improvisational comedy and sketch comedy. “I took like 25 classes at UCB, I wasn’t sure that I was going to be an actor, I just really wanted to study comedy,” Tarver said. “I studied and interned at UCB. I worked every Sunday night on a show called Asscat. I worked the door and was able to interact with all of the greatest improvisers – Amy Poehler, Seth Meyers, Rachel Dratch and Horatio Sanz—I watched those people every Sunday night for 4 years, that was the best part of my experience. I got to watch the best people do it.”

Meanwhile, Tarver was using her degree and working as a social worker for children with developmental delays until she got turned to acting. She started booking commercials and continued to study at UCB. She also sang in a folk comedy band called Summer and Eve, that performed live for about 5 years in NYC.

When asked who has been a role model or an inspiration to her career, Tarver named a couple of the best female improvisers and comedians to ever exist but she said one has been like an older sister to her.

“Amy Poehler – I love her, I have always loved her. I got so psyched to come to New York to train at her theatre and I’ve kind of known her since I got there. She has been really wonderful and always very kind to me. She’s like my older sister, but she doesn’t know it.”

Tarver has always been a fan of comedic greats. She explained that she was the kid that would stay up till 3 a.m. watching Nick at Nite and then be so tired for school the next day.“I’ve always been a fan of the greats. Dick Van Dyke, I Love Lucy—I actually went to Lucy Fest this year!” Tarver laughed. “I’ve also been binge watching all of Kristen Wigs’ movies on Netflix. She’s so effortlessly funny and dramatic, I’ve gotten to watch people like her for so long at UCB and just absorbs their greatness”

The binge watching, admiration, and studying is definitely paying off. Tarver is well on her way to living her dream of a career in comedy. She offers this advice to anyone looking to do the same.

“Always be creating—create your own thing. Create a comedy blog, have a weird Instagram, don’t wait for someone to pick you for their team, make your own team. “

Tarver plays Pam in the new USA comedy series, Donny!, who happens to be Donny Deutsch’s executive producer in a show that is a satire on his life.

“It’s a show within a show. Donny has his own ‘Dr. Phil’ type show that tackles issues like the dangers of sexting. I’m the person that tries to keep him in line—I love him, but he sure makes my life hard.” Tarver explained of the new series.

With a cast and storyline like this, it’s definitely on our must watch list.

Before we wrapped up our interview with Tarver, we asked her some rapid fire, random questions to get to know her a little more personally. You’re welcome.

An Interview with ’10 Days in a Madhouse’ Actress Caroline Barry

CarolineBerryBannerAfter talking with actress Caroline Barry, it’s no surprise that she was a perfect fit for the role of iconic journalist Nellie Bly in the film 10 Days In A Madhouse: The Nellie Bly Story. Barry’s enthusiasm about acting and the role she plays could only be rivaled by her ability to take a great story on the surface and make it exceptional by imparting her passion for telling it. But much like Bly, there is more than meets the eye with Barry – like her passion for martial arts and her love of working with children.

The Daily Quirk had the opportunity to sit down with Barry and discuss her upcoming film, some of her hobbies and what advice she would give to budding journalists after living the life of Nellie Bly. Read the full interview below.


 

The Daily Quirk: I noticed you have done a lot of theater performances. Is that what it was that made you decide to start acting, or were you always in tune with acting as a career choice?

Caroline Barry: I started acting when I was really, really young. I started performing in my parents’ living room when I started talking [laughs]. My first play was when I was five and I was just in love with it. I was just a shy kid and I didn’t really like talking very much, especially not to adults, and so plays were a great way for me to have a script and to get to talk and express myself. I loved it and I kept doing it and thought, well I might be kind of good at this, and I had done it for so long that it was never a question if I wanted to do it when I grew up, I just assumed [laughs]. I never really had many other things I wanted to do. I maybe wanted to be an architect at one point but then I was like, why would I want to be an architect when I could be an actor? [laughs] So yeah, I’ve always loved it and it always came naturally and I wanted it to be come a career.

 

TDQ: I know you’ve been working on a film called 10 Days In A Madhouse, which is the story of journalist Nellie Bly, so can you tell us a little bit about the film?

CB: Yeah, of course! So 10 Days In A Madhouse is the story of Nellie Bly, who was the first undercover reporter and she went undercover into an insane asylum in 1887 on Blackwell’s Island, which is in New York. That was one of her first assignments for Joseph Pulitzer, who we all know for the Pulitzer Prize, so she went in to him and said “I want to write for you, I’ll do anything.” And he said “Okay, go into this asylum.” [laughs] And she’s fearless. She went in and didn’t even hesitate and risked everything. She went in to find out what was happening to these women in Blackwell’s.

 

TDQ: And you actually play Nellie Bly, so can you tell us a little more about that character and the journey you took with her?

CB: Well, when I first got the audition I had never heard of Nellie Bly. I had done a lot of history classes and writing classes but I had never heard of her. So once I started researching her I was stunned that she wasn’t a household name. She was incredibly approachful [sic] in not only in journalism, but the strides that she made for all the things that she reported on. From mental illness to poverty to women’s rights, she was extremely influential in all of those. She even invented the 55-gallon oil drum, which is still used today in the oil industry, which is incredible. So what I really loved about her is that she is an absolute optimist, she was always smiling – she smiled through everything; that was her armor and I really loved that about her. She really saw the best in people, and was very compassionate, and always wrote about people that didn’t have a voice. So I really, really connected with that and was beyond thrilled that when I got the role that I got to portray that. She really became my hero.

 

TDQ: What was it about this movie and this character that stood out to you and made you want to take part in the project?

CB: Well first I think Nellie Bly being such an interesting, complex and fearless character who was such a role model for everyone is something that I think stood out to me. Also, 10 Days In A Madhouse, the women that went through this… Reading Nellie Bly’s book 10 Days In A Madhouse was a really difficult book. Once I talked to the director, Timothy Hines, he was really passionate about making this movie; about honoring the women in Blackwell’s as well as Nellie Bly, and really telling it through their eyes. So once I talked to him about that I was dedicated and committed to the movie and I was so excited. Nellie Bly, the director and the approach to her story is what made me want to do this.

 

TDQ: Were there any moments on set that stood out to you as being particularly fun or exciting or even grueling to film?

CB: Oh, yeah, which one? [laughs] There were so many! We shot in Salem, Oregon in an abandoned insane asylum, and there was no electricity so we had to use generators; it was freezing cold and it was 10 degrees on average. There were shots where you couldn’t see us but you’d just see the breath, so that was exciting and grueling but it really brought everyone together at the same time. It was kind of like being in a weird summer camp except it was freezing and you were in an abandoned insane asylum [laughs]. But it was really cool. In between takes you got to go exploring around all of it because they cleaned out part of the building, but the rest of it was still totally abandoned and [had] stuff hanging from the ceiling. Everything was broken and it was really haunting so that was a cool behind the scenes thing.

 

TDQ: This film is based on true events that actually happened, and now that you’ve played this role and lived that life, what kind of advice would you give to budding journalists about doing what Nellie Bly did?

CB: I think what really makes Nellie Bly standout, especially in journalism, is that she was absolutely passionate about every story that she told. She really got to know the people in her stories and her articles. She really, really made a personal connection with them and I think that’s not something you generally see because journalists try to keep it objective. Nellie Bly cared about the objective but also knew that there was an emotional side that if she connected with the person emotionally she could get to another level with those people and really find out the core truth of what was going on. So I think that’s the advice she would give.

 

TDQ: If you had to give three words to describe this movie to make people want to come to see it – as if the story itself wasn’t already enough – what words would you choose?

CB: Oh, oh words! [laughs] Oh I need a thesaurus… I would say… Gosh, I’m being really picky about my words because I think the movie is just… It’s enthralling, it’s inspiring and it’s moving. I think that’s the main word I would use. It’s moving.

 

TDQ: You are also working on a film called Battleborn, which is currently in post-production. Can you tell us a little more about the film and your character Eva Streed as well?

CB: Oh, yeah! So, that film is about a girl who is…she’s struggling with, well, her brother is a politician and she finds out that she is pregnant. So she and her brother have to go through his public life and her private life and that clash[es]. It’s a really great drama and I’m really excited about it.

 

TDQ: Other than 10 Days and Battleborn, do you have any other upcoming projects you can tell us about?

CB: Yeah! Timothy Hine is the director of 10 Days In A Madhouse and he and I are actually collaborating on a second movie that I’m really excited about. I don’t have too many details I can share right now, but I’m really, really excited to work with him again.

 

TDQ: What other hobbies do you have and what do you like to do in your spare time?

CB: When I’m not acting I love the outdoors. I’m from Colorado so I love being outside and hiking. I also love working with kids and I’ve done a lot of anti-bullying workshops with kids, and right now in my free time I teach kids martial arts. So I teach kids karate when I can. I think kids are so inspiring and refreshing and yeah, I just really love it.

 

TDQ: Well this actually is a perfect segue for our last question because here at The Daily Quirk we like to always end with something quirky, so what are three things people would never know about you just by looking at you? For example, that you teach karate to kids?

CB: That I have a black belt, a lot of people don’t expect that [laughs]. And I’m a pretty good skier. Growing up in Colorado my dad always told me that was a requirement [laughs].

 

The Daily Quirk would like to thank Caroline Barry for taking the time to talk with us. 10 Days In A Madhouse premieres first New York on November 11 and then nationwide on November 20. For more information on the movie and to buy tickets, you can visit the 10 Days In A Madhouse website.
