Playing catch up on #90sinJuly:
Heartless because I can't help think of poor Catherine and the possible #heartshapedbox where her heart lives, Still Alice for both #myownworstenemy and #beautifulstranger
Lastly, #myhero and #shero Shonda Rhimes and her book, Year of Yes! Her incredible writing and the inclusion of multifaceted characters represented by POC in all of her shows have changed my life and I love her for it!
Due to crazy wedding stuff this week I'm playing #90sinJuly #catchup so let's go left to right!
Day 7: Not a book, but I just couldn't think of a better #Wannabe than Mr. D
Day 8: Might not really be a #HeartShapedBox but I think it works
Day 9: #MyOwnWorstEnemy I think Nick really was his in the long run
Day 10: I'm not really sure if he is a #BeautifulStranger or not, but definitely strange
#90sInJuly #day8 #HeartShapedBox I would buy Jean-Claude a heart-shaped coffin & the happily spend eternity in it with him! It's not just the black curls, or those blue blue eyes, nor the snazzy clothes & the charisma. It's all of it combined , then throw in the French accent. 100s of years spent in a box seems a small price to pay. Sorry for the lateness, it's been a difficult two days.
The #heartshapedbox I own was a gift from a friend when my grandma died.
My grandma loved baseball more than anyone else I know. Her cousin was Ty Cobb so I think it was in her genes (although she was a lovely person, unlike Cobb). Sometimes I would mischievously call her when I knew the Mariners were playing to see how long I could keep her on the phone.
The Brothers K is a brilliant story of #family and baseball; one she would have loved.
#90sinJuly #HeartShapedBox Yeah, I wasn't quite sure where to go with this one so I just decided to pick books I've read with ❤️in the title. I suppose I could have found a few 'box' titled books too. ? I remember the video for this song freaked me out a bit. Reminds me of "Poppies. Poppies. Poppies will put them to sleep... " ?
According to Kurt Cobain, supposedly #HeartShapedBox was inspired by a story about children with cancer (though others claim it's about Courtney Love). Either way, the song was always ruined for me with the whole "eat your cancer" line. #90sInJuly
PS. I was not a fan of the casting for Gus in the movie. I didn't picture him as that dude at all. He was too much of a goofball for me. ??♀️
