Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda Review from @kleffnotes

I realize that this book has been out for a very long time, heck so long in fact that the movie has been made and out on DVD for an extended period of time, but the holidays finally give me time to indulge in some pleasure reading and I thought why not share my thoughts. I loved Love, Simon and have seen it a few times at this point, though Oreos have never been involved in any of these watches so I totally need to plan a rewatch with them in mind. I know for a fact that I picked up Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda multiple times at the only bookstore in my town, but I never wound up buying it. Unless a book has a sticker on it noting it has a new clearance price or comes from a place with Half in the title it normally takes some intense persuading to get me to buy the book for myself. Conveniently my girlfriend had a copy of the book she was willing to loan me and I need you all to know that I was so invested I read it in an afternoon, yes it was that good.

Thoughts on Netflix’s Gypsy from @kleffnotes

If you haven’t noticed based on some of my previous articles, December is a bit of a catch up month for me. Since I typically have a bit more down time between Thanksgiving and Christmas I try and watch as many shows as I can that have been sitting on my list. I had heard a number of things about Gypsy and I finally found myself with the time to watch it. Some of my thoughts here might not be entirely popular, but I thought since the show will only ever have this one season that I would share them.

Why I Love Killing Eve from @kleffnotes

I know I am very late to this particular show, but in my defense I managed to miss the first couple of Killing Eve episodes and just could not get my dvr to cooperate. I really did try, it just took a very long time. While I had a bit of a break I found out that the first season was available on Hulu and I jumped right in. Instead of recapping the series I thought I would focus on what personally sucked me into Killing Eve and the connection between Villanelle and Eve.

Podcast Suggestions from @kleffnotes

I have become really involved with listening to podcasts over the last couple of years. I actually think that’s pretty common for people in general, it feels like podcasts have sort of exploded within that time and more and more appear every day. I thought I would share the podcasts that I’m going to continue listening to this year as well as two that I know are tying up or have tied up.

The Neon Demon Movie Review from @kleffnotes

The Neon Demon is a flashy and beautiful film set in the modeling industry in Los Angeles. As the movie plays the use of lights and editing techniques makes it feel as though you are in some cases watching an art installation come to life. At first glance you would not expect this to be a horror film, but as it progresses the darkness that lies within the world of the models slowly begins to leak out.

Pooka! Movie Review from @kleffnotes

After movie to Los Angeles an actor in search of work winds up at an interesting audition. While he has a monologue prepared the casting agent is far more interested in whether he can perform certain actions in a specific order. when he gets cast as Pooka for a massive holiday marketing campaign what seemed like a simple job becomes far more complicated.

The Bi Line: ImBIbing in Something New from @kleffnotes

With 2019 starting today I wanted to try and do something new for The Nerdy Girl Express. I have been debating about doing an article series that would focus on LGBTQ+ topics, but hadn’t really had the time to sit down and focus on how to start it. Today seemed like the perfect day. Now in case you didn’t know my name is Katherine and I am an out bi woman. I typically just say bi instead of bisexual, just my personal preference, and I sometimes think up terrible puns involving the word bi. Ages ago I started thinking about the word byline, which is the part of an article that names a writer. Well as someone who is bi it seemed that it could be perfectly altered to use for my own needs.
