A Gilmore Girls Conspiracy

hold on to your chapeaus people because we’ve got to discuss something VERY pressing to the community of Stars Hollow.

brace yourself, this will ultimately change many aspects of life in the small Connecticut town.

Sasha and Lily become Anna and April in order to swindle Luke into paying for shit.

IF you aren’t a big enough fan, let me help you out a bit. First of all wtf because Gilmore Girls is one of the most important dramedies of the 2000s. Second of all, Sasha & Lily are Jess’s dad’s girlfriend and girlfriend’s daughter in Venice, CA.

did i just come to this conclusion because they recycle Sherilyn Fern as Sasha and then a few seasons later as Anna Nardini?

possibly.

HOWEVER– I’ve got some convincing evidence to back up this claim.

Shasha gets the idea from listening to Jess’s short but important sob story. She hears of Luke the hermit, a diner owner who lives alone and scarcely travels or spends money on anything extravagant. She’s looking at her life in Venice and thinking holi shit, this is not sustainable, Jimmy is a shithead and its a matter of time before he splits from my life as well. She craves the cash from someone dependable and safe, and Luke is basically the pinnacle of safety and dependability. She also wants to retain her freedom, which Luke’s love of Lorelei would allow.

so she moves, dyes her hair, and opens that weird lil shop. (A total Sasha move, if you ask me.)

and as for Lily, the bookworm with a penchant for strange places to devour literature, it only makes sense that she would grow up to be equally strange yet academically voracious.

and who, pray tell, fits this description of a strange yet academically voracious teenager just two seasons later…..That’s right, April Nardini with her lame-o helmet and eyebrows so dark (and large) she’ll never need to draw them in (see below).

now of course, i need to address the fact that Gilmore Girls is notorious for reusing actors. My favorite instance of this was the actress who played Trix, Lorelei’s grandmother, attending Trix’s funeral as cousin Marilyn (with sticky hands for the crystal bar glasses with gold leafing.)

the question is: why? what’s the point?

my theory–its never addressed because no one questioned any of it.

also theory within the theory? Anna and April became Sasha and Lily  so she could raise her in peace, maybe there was shit she was running from.

for a brief moment, let’s entertain the theory that there is no conspiracy, and Sasha and Lily are simply another strong mother-daughter duo on the west coast. Why is every daughter character a genius bookworm with lagging social skills?? (Rory was the lucky one but Lorelei has more than enough character for both of them)

the only dumb little girl ever featured in the show was Dean’s little sister. She wasn’t dumb I guess, but she was never portrayed as anything other than your average American child.

so in conclusion, i am right. Amy Sherman-Palladino really thought we wouldn’t find this out, huh?

anyway–I just needed to share. Let me know your thoughts if you have any, ok?

The Bezt 2018 Grammy Performances

I know this is a little belated, but i mean the official videos of most of these Grammy performances didn’t become available until last week, and I know most of you probably didn’t go searching for them on your own in the meantime, so here we are.

It’s a nice surprise and you know you think so.

This year’s show was packed with performances and most all of them delivered. Plus, Chappelle killed as the host.

So anyway, without further ado, here are my faves from that chilly January night:

Rihanna gives me the wildest of wild thoughts so, I mean. Do I really need to say anything else? DJ Khaled isn’t my favorite but i deal, you know.

P!nk always delivers. Her vocals are killer and she just was like fuqq it, I’m wearing jeans, a tshirt, and no shoes and I’ll still sound better than these hoes. and she did.

Speaking of vocals, this kid absolutely slays every person in the audience with his voice. Childish was of course, great as always.

Skip U2’s appearance and this is, as Kendrick’s performances always are, gold. to do this, jump from 2:03-2:31 and enjoy!

Two of my favorite people in music together on the Grammy stage!! I mean come on, what more could you ask for as a citizen of this earth? (a lot more, i get it but like, this is probably on your list)

The ’90s are my shit and this performance (and the song) evokes all the edgy ‘Saved By The Bell’ vibes you could possibly want. Cardi B is a great performer and paired with Bruno Mars and The Hooligans, it’s some next level fun time shit.

I’ll be honest, it wasn’t my most favorite Kesha performance of all time, but singing the song you wrote about your abuser to a room full of people who know him and have worked with him and didn’t believe you would be a lot. Plus I was like okay ladies, you’re all on this stage for a reason!! join her, help her out, like something, you know. But overall,  a very powerful performance and hopefully some souls are changing.

I have no words bc this performance literally says them all, so.. Logic for president 2024, ppl.

Overall it was a pretty solid show I thought. I wish some of the awards would’ve been placed in different hands but here we are. People have their opinions about the Grammys and the Recording Academy, and as they should. But that doesn’t mean we can’t sit back and enjoy some of our favorite artists performing some of our favorite songs amirite?

I’m right.
