When we watch a movie, we are watching the final product of months (or even years) of hard work. We get to see the relationships of celebrities as they are on screen. The laughs, the tears, the dynamics are all a part of a scripted story. And usually, we don’t see much of what happened on the set of these feature films. Of course, to every rule, there is an exception. When things go south between celebrities on set, the mystery that surrounds production slightly unravels in the media. Some of the world’s favorite movies didn’t have a smooth production, due to on-set feuds. Here is five of the worst! Continue reading
The Twitterverse was a flutter on July 9 when news broke that ‘your’ boyfriend, Ryan Gosling, and his actual girlfriend, Eva Mendes, are pregnant. Fans freaked out when the news broke, not just for the reason that it likely has obliterated ‘chances’ at dating Gosling, but chances at a McGosling reunion- aka a relationship reunion with Gosling’s The Notebook co-star, Rachel McAdams.

It’s a dark film about mother and son escaping their wasteland home and venturing into mystery (the underworld and an underwater town, specifically). It has a curious mix of stars such as Ryan Gosling, Saoirse Ronan, Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes and Matt Smith attached to it. The characters are called names like Rat and Bully. Lost River (previously titled How to Catch a Monster – much cooler, in my opinion) sounds awesomely strange on paper. But Gosling’s directorial debut is getting quite a strong reaction, and not all so great. Continue reading
“Hey, girl. You miss me?” I say in my best Ryan Gosling voice, though I’m not sure anyone on this planet can recreate that angelic sound. When you think of the ultimate swoon-worthy man, whom do you think of? I think most girls can unanimously scream Ryan Gosling. Whether he’s playing a hopeless romantic, a player or a bad boy, we hang on to his every scripted word, gawking at his beauty. If you answered yes to the opening question, I have some advice for you. Take your pick from this list, grab some chocolate, maybe some tissues and prepare for tears (they may be tears from the movie plot, or they may be from realizing you’ll most likely never have him for yourself). Here are the Top 5 swoon-worthy Ryan Gosling roles:
We like films that move us (oh, the feels). For some reason, we particularly like movies that move us to tears – and not glamorous tears, oh no. We like movies that leave us curled up on the couch, crying, with a mountain of tissues on the floor. We like these films so much that they’re usually the ones that we fondly return to year after year. Below, you’ll find some great films to add to your annual cry-fest.
Oh – and if you’re about 10 years behind on your romance movies, it bears mentioning that there are a few spoilers.
I, like many other women out there, find Mr. Ryan Gosling to be visually pleasing. I enjoy the different variations of the “Hey, Girl” meme, although the feminist version is my favorite, and I’m not going to say I’ll watch a movie just because my favorite Canadian goose is in it, but I won’t deny it either.
I also like coloring a lot, perhaps more than a woman my age should. I blame this on my parents who were big time coloring contest people (they really were geniuses at keeping my brother and I busy). Up until a few years ago we would occasionally still duke it out for the title of best color-er and if I suggested a contest today they would be whipping out the crayons, colored pencils, and paper before I could even lay down the rules (Yes, there are rules to coloring competitions, dad cheats and mom tends to spend way too much time on one spot).
Thus, my enjoyment of the Colour Me Good Ryan Gosling coloring book should come as no surprise. Any time I can combine two of my quirky interests in one fun activity, I’m all for it.
Now I realize all of you out there may not be Gosling fans, but fear not, there is a Colour Me Good coloring book for lots of fun pop culture interests! The artist behind the coloring books, Mel Elliot (read my interview with her here), has created versions for the 80’s & 90’s, London, Gingers (you know you want to color in Damien Lewis’ fiery locks), and her newest coloring creation coming out later this year will be called Swoon and include a variety of swoon worthy men!

This week’s Quirky Item of the Week is Colour Me Good Ryan Gosling, and I enjoyed this quirky little Ryan Gosling inspired coloring book so much that I instantly wanted to know more about its creator. Was she a Ryan Gosling super fan devoted to making art in his likeness? An artist inspired by the you look photoshopped good looks of the Gos? Someone who just really really likes to color? I had to know. Lucky for me the book’s creator, artist Mel Elliot, was willing to take some time to assuage my curiosity about Colour Me Good Ryan Gosling and all her other awesome coloring and project books. Spoiler alert, she’s not a crazy super fan, but she is a crazy good artist!

I first became aware of the Fifty Shades of Grey fan trailer phenomenon when someone sent me a link to a trailer (featured below) by Chelsea Lincoln. I was amazed by how real it looked and found myself clicking from one of her videos to the next continually surprised by the finesse and attention to detail that went into making them. From there, I was quickly surfing around youtube watching one trailer after another amazed by the sheer quantity of fan created trailers out there and sometimes amazed by the quality of these creations, like in the case of Ms. Lincoln’s. After yelling at the friend who sent me the original link (I seriously wound up losing at least two hours of work time), I moved on and forgot about the Fifty Shades fan trailers for awhile… until The Daily Quirk started receiving emails about them.
