Yes, I know I’m sooo late to the party. But I made up for it by watching all 100 episodes—just about five minutes each—in four days! For those who are as late to the party as I am, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a web series based on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
Basically, Lizzie the single grad student vlogs about her life. It’s still got Austen canon like Lizzie’s mom’s eternal struggle to marry off her daughters, but it also has the coolest modern twists: Mr. Bingley is now Mr. Bing Lee (gedditttt), Darcy’s a corporate hipster, and more. I love how they modernized Charlotte and Mr. Collins’ “arrangement,” the George and Lydia debacle, and all kinds of other stuff I don’t want to spoil.
If you haven’t read Pride and Prejudice or seen the Keira Knightley movie, I suggest you Wikipedia the original plot so you can better appreciate all the little twists. And when you do decide to watch LBD, make sure you’ve got pillows to hug and to muffle your kilig squeals. I was not prepared for how life-ruining it was, so I found myself flailing, running around my room, and screaming at my laptop in the dead of the night, waking up not a few neighbors. Oh, and go to the bathroom before you start watching! Umm, gross tip, but I promise you won’t be able to tear yourself away for hours.
In case you need more convincing, here are Lizzie and Darcy looking ADORABLE at LBD events.
Walang mapaglagyan ng kilig (haha!),

One Saturday night, my friend Jean and I found ourselves at Heima’s fourth anniversary party at the Brixton branch. Food on the grill, steady music, amazing merch, cool crowd—definitely a fun night. Some snapshots:

Well, not technically, but we did get to do a little group interview with the Stark girls of HBO’s Game of Thrones through the wonders of the Internet. As a HUGE fan of Game of Thrones, I was so excited to find out that HBO had chosen a few of our questions for Sophie Turner (Sansa) and Maisie Williams (Arya).
Now before I get into the interviews, here’s a little primer for the uninitiated. Game of Thrones is the epic TV adaptation of the A Song of Ice and Fire books. It’s a medieval fantasy with kings battling for the crown, families tearing each other apart, and all sorts of supernatural creatures (dragons, giants, the undead, etc.). It’s the best thing on TV this month.
Sisters Sansa and Arya are two of the many, many children forced to grow up and just survive after war breaks out in the land of Westeros. Big sister Sansa used to be the future princess, but her “traitor” blood turned her into a hostage of the royal family. Arya is the tough little wolf trying to go back home with the help of her pack.
Q: In an ideal world, what would Sansa’s life be like?
Sophie: Sansa would be married to Loras, who is straight, (Loras is the closeted gay knight Sansa has a crush on) and have lots of children with him. She’s the queen, her dad is still alive, and her family is around her—but that’s not going to happen, is it?
Q: Do you ever find yourself thinking, ‘What would Arya do?’
Maisie: It’s funny you should say that because I find myself saying and thinking things that Arya would. Just little mischievous things. I laugh to myself about how she sort of inspires me.
Lovely girls, right? Make sure to catch the season three premiere on Saturday, 9pm on HBO. I know I will!

Don’t you just love how more and more acts are coming to the Philippines? It’s only April and I’ve already seen Stars and Joss Stone! This summer, there’s the Wanderland Music Festival featuring The Temper Trap, Neon Trees, Nada Surf, Avalanche City, Colour Coding, and Tully on Tully, plus local bands Up Dharma Down, Yolanda Moon, Pulso, Taken by Cars, and She’s Only Sixteen. I’m dying to go, but I’m still recovering from my Malasimbo expenses. BOOHOO.
Anyway, Wanderland got me thinking about the acts I’d give an arm and a leg to see.
- Mumford & Sons
- The Black Keys
- Arcade Fire
- Of Monsters and Men
- The xx – They’ll be in Asia in July! Someone please bring them here!
- Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
- Bruno Mars
- Ellie Goulding
- Freelance Whales
- Matt & Kim
- Alabama Shakes
- Best Coast
How about you? Who’s on your concert wish list?
