Yes, I am. It’s the best way I’ve found of combating my Depression. If I have something to look forward to and plan for, I have less motivation to follow through with my not-so-good thoughts.
Tomorrow’s my mama’s birthday and she’s coming up to have dinner and watch Mary Poppins. :) In 3.5 weeks, I’m taking the train to Denver for a weekend and I’m super stoked about that. And hopefully in September, I’ll be going to the National NAMI Convention in DC (if I can raise the money!). Just gotta have things to look forward to. :)
a-wilde-handful followed you.
I AM DEAD.
I hope you’re aware that you’re one of the first blogs I followed when I made this blog, even before Orphan Black fandom so I might or might not be freaking out right now.
You should have talked to me, silly, and we could have been friends then. :) We can celebrate with all the Olivia and OB-ness there is, ok dokie?
I usually fall asleep on my left side then end up on my right side before I wake.
Well, I’m empathetic and kind. Those are my major strengths.
I care too much and can’t stand rejection.
Olivia Wilde is returning to television.
The House alum has booked a co-starring role on HBO’s untitled rock ‘n’ roll drama pilot from executive producersMartin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, Terence Winter andGeorge Mastras, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Set in 1970s New York, the pilot explores the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all told through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound.
Bobby Cannavale stars as Richie Finestra, the founder and president of a top-tier record label (American Century Records) with a great ear for discovering talent who undergoes a crisis of character when confronted with a life-altering decision.
Wilde will play Devon Finestra, Richie’s wife. She’s a former actress/model who lived a Bohemian life in 1960s New York. Richie’s crisis causes strain on their family and propels her to re-immerse in her former lifestyle.
The role marks Wilde’s return to the small-screen after she starred as Remy “Thirteen” Hadley on seasons four through eight of Fox’s House. Her credits include The O.C. and featuresIn Time, Rush, Tron: Legacy, Cowboys & Aliens, Rush and Her. She’s repped by WME, Untitled, Hamilton Hodell and Ziffren Brittenham. Wilde next appears in Reed Morano’s Meadowland.
The drama hails from Boardwalk Empire's Winter and Scorsese, the latter of whom will direct and executive produce. Winter will pen the script and exec produce alongsideMastras, who will serve as showrunner.
The project is based on an idea from Rolling Stones frontman Jagger — who conceived the entry as a film first at Disney and then at Paramount. He will exec produce with his Jagged Films partner Victoria Pearman, and Scorsese’s manager Rick Yorn and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. The drama marks a reunion for Scorsese, Jagger and Pearman, who collaborated on the 2008 documentary Shine a Light.
Production will likely start in early summer 2014.
Orphan Black. I watched the show when it first came out but didn’t get into the fandom things on here until about a month ago because I didn’t want to get sucked in. Well now I’m sucked in and it’s hell. But a good hell. I think. I’m not quite sure.
As it turns out, in my life, March 10th was a good day.
Well, if you consider everything that was in the Orphan Black trailer good.
And it’s Liv’s 30th birthday so I was stoked about that.
And I got some peanut butter and muffins at the food pantry (a little more than that actually).
And in less than 4 weeks, I’m heading to Denver for a weekend.
So what I’m trying to say is I adore you all and hope you had a good day. :) Good days are hard to come by.
I think it’s terribly weird that I think of OB before I think of my own birthday. But it’s the way it is and I’m ok with it. :)
Every time I see April 19th on a post, instead of saying, “Oi! That’s my birthday,” I say, “Oi! That’s when Orphan Black season two starts.”
You can see my priorities in life.
