The Collectress Picks 5: Things You Should Watch Starring Tahmoh Penikett

This week The Collective gals spontaneously fangirled in their writing, following the Collectiva Diva’s post on Jensen Ackles’ tweets and the Spaniard’s dreamy Hiddleswooning article.  Okay, so maybe not so spontaneously. So I’m just gonna jump right in and fangirl along with my cohorts.

Facebook told me this morning that my beloved Tahmoh Penikett had been named #13 in a list of Canada’s 25 Hottest Bachelors. Obviously there was a typo on the list and they accidentally added a “3” behind the “#1,” because I mean, c’mon, take a look at the photo op I took with Tahmoh last year and try not to swoon!

Ok, now I’m swooning because damn.


While I disagree with Tahmoh’s placement on the list, I must say that seeing the article on my Facebook feed pushed me into a spiral of fangirling that nearly prevented me from finishing my dissertation. And then I went through Tahmoh’s filmography and then whoops, I made this list of five things starring Tahmoh that you should absolutely watch, and not just because the man is swoon-worthy but because he’s got badass talent.  Continue reading

Get Waspy: A Hope van Dyne Makeup Tutorial

wasp makeup tutorial I went to see Trainwreck (because Amy Schumer is LIFE) and the movie broke, so I was able to go see Ant-Man for free! Thanks, movie Gods! That being said, I would have paid money for this film. I’ll admit I don’t watch Marvel films as often as I should but this one made me want to sit down and watch them all because holy cow, Marvel knows what they are doing. I had very low expectations for Paul Rudd in the role of Scott Lang, using the justification that “no one who was in 40 Year Old Virgin should enter the Marvel Universe” but he blew me away with his performance in the dramatic/action moments, and then excelled in the comedic moments here and there. But the winner, the character who stood out the most to me was Hope van Dyne (played by Evangeline Lilly). Hope was such a well-rounded strong female character, she showed vulnerability and emotion, but you also saw her ass-kicking abilities. She was able to fall in love and have a romantic storyline, but she didn’t NEED it to be in the film. If you haven’t already seen Ant-Man, I recommend this to anyone, adults and kids.
