Staff Favourites 1(A): “Guilty Pleasure Movies”

September 28, 2011

In honour of all things ‘Spring’, the You’re Dripping Egg contributing staff are waxing lyrical about some of their favourite things. Mattie’s Favourite Guilty Pleasure Movie: Miss Congeniality Rated a mighty 6.0 out of 10 on IMDB and brandishing the tagline; “Unpolished. Unkempt. Unleashed. Undercover.” Miss Congeniality is my guilty pleasure movie. But can it […]

Cosmo-topia! Paris

September 24, 2011

With Cosmo-topia! 2011 almost over, I feel like it’s compulsory for me to write a review of Paris. I know – everyone’s been there, we’ve all seen the Eiffel Tower, tell me something I don’t know, blah blah blah. True dat, guys. I don’t think I really have anything new to say about the Notre […]

ABC2’s “Twentysomething” by Jennifer O’Brien

What a clever writer/performer Jess Harris is.  She had me hooked from the start of the first episode. How could I resist the opening scene’s teasing invitation to dive to the bottom of contemporary life with a fresh-faced lass who crawls across the pub floor to draw maggot eyes on a young man lying on […]

People, I do all of this for you. I had to endure the unbelievably irritating “Emmys Backstage Live!” in order to have what could be considered a FULL Emmys Virtual Experience. Can I tell you, there’s a reason why some people don’t get good jobs, and instead they get the job of being locked in […]

They emerge out of their bedroom in five-minute intervals after conspiring together new strategies to tear me away from my laptop. So far I’ve seen the tooth fairy, Batman, a mullet, a monster, a tooth fairy with a mullet, and a penis. 8:30 could not come soon enough. That sweet, sweet time in a babysitter’s […]

Texas Fo’ever—“Friday Night Lights” by Matilda Dixon-Smith

Believe me folks; it’s as much of a surprise to me as it may be to you that I’m writing about a sports-related television drama. I hate sports on TV. Watching the Ravens play basketball was the most boring part of One Tree Hill (even if it meant that we sometimes saw Chad Michael Murray […]

The Thin Pop Line by Jake Robinson

The morning of Monday August 15 seemed, on appearance, the same as any other. Birds flew in the sky, fish swam in the sea and that morning, like every other Monday morning, the weekly ARIA charts were released. At #1 sat Gotye and Kimbra’s ‘Somebody I Used To Know’. While it had justified its position by […]
