WCW: Jenny Lewis (The Voyager)

My Woman Crush this Wednesday, and everyday, is the amazing Jenny Lewis.  I picked her today in honor of her newest solo album, The Voyager, which debuted yesterday.

I’ve loved Jenny Lewis from her days in Rilo Kiley, but I’ve known her for a lot longer than that.  She also delighted me playing Shelley Long’s daughter in Troop Beverly Hills!  I’ve gotten the opportunity to see Jenny in concert only once, back when Rilo Kiley was still together and she and Blake were magic together on the stage.  She’s so adorable and has a fantastic spirit about her when she performs– look no further than her flawless appearance on Jimmy Fallon with her first single, Just One of the Guys.

I’m already absolutely in love with this album.  It’s perfection.

What do you all think of The Voyager?

 

WCW: Bitty Schram & the Rockford Peaches

MV5BMjA2MDI1NzEwNF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNzM2NTgwMw@@._V1_SX640_SY720_ I did something weird last night… I watched a movie.  If you know me, or have been like, a super dedicated reader for some reason, you’ll know I never see movies.  It’s not for lack of desire, I just prefer an episodic format and can’t seem to get around to watching a longer, one-off.  It’s weird, I know.

Last night, I watched A League of Their Own on Netflix.  I absolutely loved it, obviously.  I actually cried through a good chunk of the end… which is another reason I don’t watch movies often.  I think the beginning of summer is the perfect time to watch this, being baseball season and all.  Having never seen this film before, I was clearly missing out on some important cultural references.  I knew about “there’s no crying in baseball!” but I didn’t know it was said to Bitty Schram, or that she was even in this film!

I loved Bitty Schram in Monk, always preferring Sharona to Natalie, and I must say, she was even more adorable in A League of Their Own.  Bitty Schram is my woman crush this Wednesday, but really it’s all of the Rockford Peaches!  If you live under a rock (like me, apparently!) and haven’t seen this movie, go ahead and Netflix it.  I think it’s important.  You’ll also see Gina Davis, Tom Hanks, Rosie O’Donnell, and Madonna.

What other movies from 22 years ago am I missing out on, guys?  Netflix suggestions always appreciated.  I’m honestly not going to watch it otherwise…
