In an attempt to augment my cultural literacy, I decided to watch The Hunger Games last night. The first one. I know, I’ve got a lot to catch up on. I’ve had a full-on girl crush on J-Law ever since I saw her in Silver Linings Playbook and my love for her was solidified when she somehow managed to make face planting look cool while climbing the stairs to accept her Oscar. Nevertheless, my hesitation in jumping on the Hunger Games bandwagon has simply been based upon my baseless prejudice against pretty much all futuristic/fantasy/dystopian/vampire-related media (yes, all of these wildly different genres are lumped together in my mind).
However, on the rare occasion that I’ve been coaxed (forced) into begrudgingly reading these books and/or watching these films, I almost always end up… well… kind of really loving them. Exhibit A: Harry Potter. I’m definitely no fanatic, but I may or may not have since attempted to model my life after George Weasley (minus one awesome, albeit doom-fated twin).
Now, did I end up crying a little bit when Dobby died in the second to last movie? None of your business. But am I 95% certain that apparition is entirely possible? Perhaps.
I mean, if Amazon can create the robotic equivalent to the “Owl Post” (read: Hedwig Steals Show in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1), I don’t think it’s SO unreasonable to believe that teleporting from NYC to Milwaukee is a distinct possibility.
What’s my point? Unclear. But I think this is my circuitous way of attempting to casually weave both Jennifer Lawrence and Harry Potter into conversation. Oh! And also of introducing today’s garment of distinction and style maverick of the season: CAPES.
