As you might have imagined, Ariel and I have had lots of thoughts about the Fifty Shades movie. It’s with considerable excitement that I can share one of my more carefully considered ideas about it with all of you, which you can read (get excited) over at NPR. I have a new freelance piece on […]

Scenes We Really Don’t Want to See in the First Fifty Shades of Grey Movie

February 5, 2014 by


Even though its release is a year away (marking my calendar for 15 Feb 2015, yo), Matt and I have been giving a lot of consideration to the scenes that we’re really really not excited to see in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey films. We’ll provide excerpts to help jog your memory because it’s been awhile since we wrote […]

February 27, 2013 by


Wow, so we took an unexpectedly long little break there! You guys have gone, what, a whole week without our smart-ass comments?

Fifty Shades of Grey: A Character Guide

August 22, 2012 by


It has come to my attention that it is not just my mother who does not know who Taylor is, which leads me to believe there are other characters who come up in these books whom you may not recognize! And those of you just joining us may have never even seen some of these […]

July 19, 2012 by


26 The final chapter again begins with Ana waking up. Mercifully, James spares us the details of Ana’s dreams, only revealing that Ana believes she was falling down a flight of stairs before she woke up. Look at all the fucks I give about this dream.

But then I had to read it earlier today so I could write this. Also, I’m totally sober this time. Let’s […]
