Tip of the hat to @GalGadot and @ChrisHemsworth for #ThorsDay

Please excuse the screenshot, but I had to share this. I was tickled when this popped up in my feed a couple of days ago. As you may have noticed, I’m a huge fan of the new Wonder Woman film and a longtime fan of the Thor franchise, so when Gal Gadot shared a video where she said, “Hey Chris, they asked me who I thought would win in a battle between Wonder Woman and Thor.

Blind Casting Characters

Blind casting is a practice in the film industry of casting for a television show or film without considering the actor or actress’s ethnicity. For example, when originally casting the roles of Grey’s Anatomy, the producers didn’t look for any specific ethnicities, rather they took the best actors or actresses who auditioned and then let them become the role. Can you imagine anyone else playing Cristina or Bailey or Meredith for that matter? Blind Casting Icons I bring up blind casting today because of a conversation revolving around loving an actor or an actress even if you hate the role […]

Passionate Love Stories

What are the ingredients necessary for a passionate love story? A tragic hero who carries the weight of the world on his shoulder? A heroine strong enough to bear the burden? Intelligence? Wit? Charm? What about the ability to meet the other on a level playing field? They can come from different worlds, different social strata — even completely different cultures if they can cross bridges with one aspect of their relationship? This week the Daily Dose is going to focus on passionate love stories in literature — all forms from comics to chick lit to supernatural and paranormal romance […]
