We interrupt this program to bring you a special Weekly Thoughts post...

When the news broke about Ryan Gosling's directorial debut How to Catch a Monster, this was my response- 
"Like I didn't think it was possible for me to be more crazy about him, but the Gos is a gift that just keeps on giving. Can't fucking wait!!"

He had already cast the gorgeous and criminally underrated Christina Hendricks and his girlfriend Eva Mendes in it, so I was more excited...

Cut to this morning when I, happily on my way to what would ultimately be a dismal college trip, get a notification from Anna,



which caused a minor freakout because
THIS IS HAPPENING, PEOPLE-

In my wildest fantasies, and believe me there are quite a few, I could not have thought that *this* will happen. I have always been a bit against the idea of Matt Smith becoming a Hollywood star because he is slightly strange-looking, which I love, and I like him being all British. Also, even a whiff of imagining Doctor Who without him is unthinkable, but How to Catch a Monster is pretty much the perfect way for Smith to, if he absolutely has to, move towards American cinema. It is a fantasy noir, which sounds uber cool and though we don't know who exactly he will be playing yet, the plot mentions Hendricks's character and her sons being swept away into a macabre underworld, so I do think his character might not be the cookie-cutter hero type. And if he has a whole baddie side to him, it will literally be ecstasy for me. Hell, this film has become my most anticipated film of ALL TIME. The only way it can get better for me is if I can somehow get to be part of it (I must!!!!!).

BEST!!!!!!!!!

  4. Nikhat, I don't know how often you read my blog, but I check out most of your posts. I just have to say that I had no idea you felt this way about Gosling; I'm amazed you've been able to hide your feelings for so long...
