YA LIT MEME: Seven Friendships.

↳  SAVING FRANCESCA + THE PIPER‘S SON; Francesca Spinelli, Tara Finke, Siobhan Sullivan, Justine Kalinsky, Thomas Mckee and Jimmy Hailler. [1/7]

Your friends are at the house.’
I sit up, straight. ‘Who’?
'I don’t know. Weird people. The Sullivan girl, whose father got the Gosford police to pick you up.’
'Siobhan?’
'And another one who’s making cups of tea for everyone, and keeping the boy who’s telling Luca fart jokes away from the girl who says he’s “the last bastion of patriarchal poor taste”.’
'Justine, Thomas and Tara.’
And the drug fiend, Jimmy, is keeping Mia calm and the Trombal boy’s rung about ten times. I don’t like his manner on the phone.’
'You won’t like any guy’s manner on the phone.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting the boys from Stranger Things at the Days of the Dead convention in Atlanta (2/4/17) and seeing their panel.  I thought I’d share some cool things the kids talked about:

  • Finn got his first acting jobs off of Craigslist ads.
  • Stranger Things was originally called Montauk and took place in Long Island.
  • Before auditioning, the kids were sent movie clips to watch from Jaws, The Poltergeist, Let Me In,  E.T., and  The Goonies to get a “feel” for how the Duffer brothers wanted the show to be like.
  • At the auditions the boys read from the script of Stand By Me.
  • Stranger Things was originally going to be a mini-series.
  • Gaten was the only person the Duffer brothers auditioned for Dustin.
  • Noah originally auditioned for Mike.
  • The cast (with the exception of Gaten) complained that the 80’s clothes they had to wear were uncomfortable. They were even given “tighty whities” to wear, which they said they refused to do.
  • When talking about the technology from the 80s that they had never seen before, Finn said that Millie had never seen a record player before prior to filming the first season. The boys couldn’t believe this, because as Finn said, “you can get one at Urban Outfitters.”
  • Gaten said the worst scene for him to film was the scene where Dustin and Mike are being chased by the bullies in the quarry because he hates running. When told he needed to keep up with Finn, Gaten said “then Finn needs to slow down.”
  • In the last episode, the scene where Jonathan picks up Will from playing D&D was improvised. Lucas says that Dustin farted, but he originally said “Dustin sharted.” However, the voice was dubbed over in the final cut because the Duffer brothers said that nobody said “sharted” in the 1980s.
  • Gaten said that his favorite movie is Saving Private Ryan. Finn’s is Trainspotting, and Noah’s is Castaway. Caleb couldn’t pick a favorite movie.
  • Gaten’s new charity, CCD Smiles, should be up and running in the next month or so.

Plus some cute things:

  • Finn said when he went to his audition he was excited because the Duffer Brothers had bought him business class plane tickets, much to the disbelief of Noah who said he was given an economy class ticket. 
  • Caleb corrected his own grammar once when answering a question.
  • Noah recently bought Dungeons and Dragons, much to the delight of the others who can’t wait to play and they all exclaimed “let’s play tomorrow!”
  • When the panel moderator said no more questions and thanked the boys for coming, Finn said “Wait, we’re done? No we can take more questions.” When the other boys joined in the moderator allowed 10 more minutes of questions.
  • At one point a lot of static came out of the microphones, prompting the boys to say things like “hello?” and “it’s here.”
The Crystal Kingdom Part 1: TAZ Pre-Finale Relisten Recap

My computer is very broken so this is now a super fun phone adventure. Crystal Kingdom time!

  • I listened to TAZ before I started listening to MBMBAM, so the introduction of Candlenights was decently confusing to me.
  • The entire Candlenights gift exchange is a beautiful fucking disaster, my god
    • Johann gives all of his coworkers a copy of his mixtape, which is an excellent example of exactly what not to do at a holiday office party.
    • The boys are very very mean to Angus. Please be kind to Angus.
    • Listening to Magnus telling Killian that he read her diary and then Merle being like “ayyyyy we know you like Johann it was in there” was kind of like watching a train very slowly derail itself? Pretty glad we got Sweet Flips out of that one.
    • Merle initially gives people “shitty small comics” as gifts, but then switches to re-gifting things that other bureau members have given him. Nice to see that Merle’s gifts are consistently bad no matter where/when he is.
    • I love the running thread of Taako’s macarons being so good that they just kind of cancel out the THB’s terrible interactions with everyone else on the moon base.
    • “The rest are just egg whites, and instead of using castor sugar like I normally would I went with uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Splenda!” — Taako’s macaron recipe, apparently
  • “I hand her a coupon for one free back rub.” “This is exactly what I was actually afraid of. This is actually— Magnus, this is the nightmare scenario.”
    • Also, “hot diggity shit this is a baller cookie” of COURSE.
    • I love Lucretia very much.
  • Magnus getting Taako and Merle gifts is adorable. Even if said gifts are 2-in-1 toilet chairs. I guess it’s the thought that counts?
  • The IPRE patches appear in this episode.
    • The patches are iron-ons. I like that the IPRE on the seven’s home plane was supposedly this big-shot organization but they apparently couldn’t afford to stitch a god damn logo onto their employees’ robes and gave them fucking iron-ons instead
  • Magnus canonically describes Lucas as “a fart in a shirt”.
  • “Lucas, we’re gonna pull your ass out of the fire this time, but we’re gonna have a nice LONG talk about ethical— about your fiery ass, when this one’s, over and out. Damn it. I could’ve done way better there.” — Lucretia, who I would take a bullet for
  • Griffin accidentally plays 5 seconds of the super upbeat Candlenights jingle in the middle of Lucretia’s very serious rant about Lucas.
  • The boys all choosing some variation of red for their null suits is one of those weird mind-blowing-down-the-road coincidences that TAZ is peppered with.
  • I wonder how Lucretia manages to explain the moon just kind of hoofing it the wrong way across the night sky to everyone down below?
  • Magnus: “Do you… feel good?”

    Boyland: “Not on the inside”

    • Boyland who hurt you
  • Magnus: “Are we going to be facing any like, crystalline monsters or enemies??”

    Lucas: “I mean, I didn’t see anything”

    • Magnus, probably: why the fuck you lyin

Recaps are tagged as ‘Lauren pounds some TAZ’. Thanks for following along if you are!

Eat a baller cookie and have a lovely day!

but think about this: Maya made fun of Lucas to hide her feelings. She tried to push him away by making fun of him. She thought it would be easier if Lucas hated her. But he didn’t. And now it’s been 2 years and she can’t push him away anymore. She knows he has to ride the bull, so she says that if he does, she’ll never talk to him again. Again, it’s her trying to push away her feelings. But now Riley knows. And everything has changed. Riley steps aside because Maya did for 2 years. Because they’re best friends and sisters and it’s what they do. So now Lucas knows and Maya has a chance with him. She knows this hurts Riley so she’s still pushing him away. But after Lucas grabs her face, she gives in. Wonder what happens next?
