The Maya Rudolph Show will debut on NBC May 19th with tons of celebrity guests.

Ayayussuh. I hope she will have Elaine Stritch, Idris Elba, Forrest Whittaker, Dame Darcy, Lynda Barry, Bjork, Antony, Gina Torres, Wanda Sykes, Molly Shannon, John Waters, Lil BUB, and Nick on her first ep. Just first thoughts, I could add more as needed.

"I detest the masculine point of view. I am bored by his heroism, virtue, and honour. I think the best these men can do is not talk about themselves anymore."

Virginia Woolf, The Pargiters: The Novel-Essay Portion of THE YEARS  (via fetchhappened)

this lady died in the 1800s [actually the 1940s - themarysue] and this shit is still true today, aka we need more female perspective and female-centered stories in the media that are not romance or romantic comedies, like that’s the only thing women do.

"I was on a plane watching a documentary about Diana Vreeland, who was the editor of Vogue for years, who is incredible […] They asked her ‘How do you get to be Diana Vreeland?’ and her response was ‘Well, darling, first you have to arrange to be born in Paris!’ And that worked for her, and that’s great, but if someone were to ask me, I’d say: First, you’d have to arrange to be born in the Bronx, to two brilliant, fantastic, Cuban immigrants who taught me grace under fire…sometimes quite literally, ‘cause it was the Bronx…who taught me that work was a blessing and not a chore, who taught me that you determine your self worth and that you tell people who you are…they don’t get to tell you." - Gina Torres

Now that we’ve casted the film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch, we’d like to turn your attention to Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie’s Americanah, which may be involved in an upcoming collaboration with Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o. Adichie framed the possibility this way in a recent interview: “I’m going to do the mysterious thing and say that Lupita might be making an announcement very soon.”
