It seems as though every year we start listening to Christmas music earlier and earlier. In the beginning it was December 1st, then we backed up to the day after Thanksgiving, then November 1st, and then brace yourself…some of us actually start listening before Halloween. I know, the horror! But what has caused this change? What’s behind the Christmas craze? And why are some people so against it?
1.) Drive Me Crazy (1999)
I don’t know how much more praise I can give one movie. If you follow me on Twitter (@literallyrachel), you inevitably know how much I love this movie considering the many tweets I have about it. Many of these tweets pertain to the main character, the love of my life, Chase Hammond, played by the ever-gorgeous Adrian Grenier along side co-star Melissa Hart of Sabrina fame. This movie is a combination of my favorite things: nerdy/alternative guys receiving a hot makeover (Chase was always hot tho); the “girl next door” feel; and a beautiful combination of what makes 90s movies so great—trying on clothes montages and a pop punk girl band playing at a high school centennial. I love you, Chase Hammond.
Rereading The Twilight Saga this summer was not some long, thought out decision where I envisioned the consequences of throwing it so far back shoulders were bound to be dislocated. In fact, it was rather spur of the moment, a reach into the darkness of boredom.
