Book Vs Movie “Pet Sematary”

Book Vs. Movie Podcast

The Stephen King Bonus Ep

With Deana Marie (Twisted Philly)

Pet Sematary (Original & Remake)

It’s time for another Stephen King Bonus ep and Margo D. is joined by Deana Marie of the Twisted Philly podcast to talk about the remake of Pet Sematary directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes) and comparing it to the 1989 movie directed by Mary Lambert.

Plus, we delve into the 1983 novel that was inspired by author King’s stay at a residence in Maine for a year that was located by a busy roadway. In real life, his daughter’s cat was run over by a truck and his son was almost struck down by one as well.

King took these events and created the creepy story of the Creed family who moves to Ludlow, Maine to escape the city life. Instead of finding tranquility they discover their home is located near a pet cemetery that has some supernatural powers.

Book Vs Movie

Gone With the Wind”

The Margaret Mitchell Pulitzer Prize-Winning Novel Vs the David O. Selznick Film

Fiddly dee! The Margos are feeling the vapors as we finally tackle Margaret Mitchell’s classic novel Gone With the Wind and this time, us two Yankees admit we need some help understanding the history of the book and its author. So for the first time ever–we asked another podcaster to join us for this discussion–Alicia from the Trashy Divorces podcast!

Alicia is a sassy southern bred, Atlanta-based podcaster who loves this book and has tons to say about the iconic author. The Margos found the material to be challenging (to say the least!) so we really wanted to give the fans the opportunity to hear from a Mitchell Stan.

Now the big question, which version did the Margos like better? Check out the link below to hear for yourself!

The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe by Ally Condie

Who do you become when you have nothing left to lose?

There is something Poe Blythe, the seventeen-year-old captain of the Outpost’s last mining ship, wants far more than the gold they tear from the Serpentine River.

Poe has vowed to annihilate the river raiders who robbed her of everything two years ago. But as she navigates the treacherous waters of the Serpentine and realizes there might be a traitor among her crew, she must also reckon with who she has become, who she wants to be, and the ways love can change and shape you. Even—and especially—when you think all is lost.

Ally Condie, the international bestselling author of the Matched trilogy, returns with an intricately crafted and emotionally gripping story of one young woman’s journey to move beyond the grief and anger that control her and find the inner strength to chart her own course.

The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe is one of the most anticipated YA novels of 2019 author Ally Condie will be going on a national tour to promote this Spring & Summer.

You can follow her on social media @AllyCondie @PenguinTeen #PoeBlythe

In this ep the Margos discuss:

    • The life story of the incredibly brilliant (and frustrating!) Margaret Mitchell and her unlikely contribution to a large number of African American doctors and dentists just before she died.
    • The history of the book and how it became a juggernaut in the publishing industry
    • How David O Selznick turned the property into the number one film of all time (and how he still managed to die completely broke)
    • The casting of the movie and how the African American actors were treated at the movie premier and Academy Awards
    • Why the book & film are considered to be controversial

Clips Featured:

    • Gone With the Wind (original trailer)
    • Scarlett first meets Rhett
    • Scarlett, Mammy, and Prissy get ready for the BBQ
    • “I will never be hungry again!”
    • “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn”
    • Outro music Gone With the Wind (Theme) by Max Steiner

Brooklyn Fit Chick: “The Dog Scratched at My Face” Post (A Lesson in Gratitude)

Brooklyn Fit Chick

 “Yep, A Dog Scratched My Face” Post

How I Spent My New Year’s Eve, Lessons on Gratitude,

Plus: My Goal to Be More Like Chris & Theresa in 2015

What up 2015?!

What up 2015?!

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

So how was your New Year’s Eve? Mine was 99% supremely awesome. I spent it with great friends who live just around the block from me. Do you understand how amazing that is? I could (potentially) drink my weight in champagne and walk home in no time. Oh my, it started off so well.

There was drinking and merriment.

I wore party shoes (my Kate Spade statement heels)

There was a floating shark

“White Lines” by Grand Master Flash invaded the room…

And then….as the clock struck 1 am and I decided to head home. But first I wanted to just pet the home owner’s doggie goodbye as I left and let’s just say…I might have zigged when I should have zagged because it seems as if I got just a little close too his sweet face for comfort as he took a swipe at me missing my left eye by thismuch.

Oh—and while I was cleaning out my wound one of my contacts fell out so I was half blind and trying to assess what just happened to me. (Only a nightmare I have been imagining since I got my first pair of contacts in the seventh grade.)

So this is where the gratefulness comes in—stick with me!

I am grateful because my friend Sage was right there when it happened. He is an ER doctor and made sure I was taken care of right away. He called the local hospital and insisted I get stiches. (I was blubbering about wanting to go home but my friends wisely put the kibosh on that.)

So my friends Chris and Theresa took me to the hospital in Sunset Park on New Year’s Eve which is an interesting night to be at an ER to say the very least. That sat with me until 5 am and kept me calm. We talked movies, music and podcasts when Chris reminded me that an awesome woman named Tina Fey has a scar on her face and it doesn’t stop her from doing anything she wants in her life.

At 5 am I took this selfie to show off my surgeon’s amazing stitching:

I tried to bribe the doctor with a $100 Amex gift card to get some Botox and fillers while we were at it but she explained they don’t keep those on had in the emergency room in Sunset Park. (Never hurts to ask!)

Since then I have been taking it easy on the couch and getting caught up for the next episode of the Book Vs Movie podcast (we are back with our first episode of the 2015 Primary Colors available for download on January 17th!)

I snuggled with my kitties Tennessee

And Sweet Sarah

I have also been fighting a nasty cold at the same time so let’s just say I am currently NOT as pretty as a picture but I am still so damn grateful.

What am I grateful for?

  • I am grateful I have such good friends to hang out with on New Year’s Eve who can also handle an emergency.
  • I am grateful the dog didn’t take out my eye.
  • I am grateful the surgeon took her time to make sure my stitches were handled correctly.
  • I am grateful for Chris and Theresa for taking care of me with no thought to how long it would take and without really knowing the neighborhood we were driving in the middle of the night on New Year’s freaking Eve! (They have ensured very good karma for them in 2015.)
  • I am grateful for all of my friends and family who have been checking in on me.

And just so you know—me and the dog are super cool. He really is a good boy. I know it wasn’t personal.

But when people say let sleeping dogs lie—believe them!

Since then (has it only been 5 days? Wow!) I have taught five spin and two core classes so let’s just say I am a badass who will handle this obstacle. 2014 may have left me bruised and battered but I am determined to kick 2015 right square in the pants no matter what!

I am also thinking of how I am going to incorporate being more like Chris & Theresa from now on because they rock so freaking hard! (Those two crazy kids got engaged this past year so I am sending them a Mazel as well!)

I want to be the kind of person who deserves this much love and care when I am completely vulnerable. They have reminded me about the power of kindness so once again—I am grateful!

Next week I will be back with a fabulous Weight Watchers dance workout kit giveaway so stay tuned when I will post my Vlog again. I hope you understand—with a black eye and a runny nose I just did NOT feel like putting my face on You Tube just yet. Hand to god—next week for sure.

Coming up this week I will have my Tria review and my own personal look at the January Women’s Health magazine so keep checking back here!

This girl is taking a Vlogging/Giveaway break for a few days. Cheers!

Hey there! Hi There! Ho There!

How are you gang? Me? I am fine and dandy but my schedule is just a bit tight right now and I could not get it together for a Vlog post this week. Horrors! I swore when I started this venture that I would never miss a week NO MATTER WHAT. But guess what? Life has a way of moving in on your great plans and throwing them right back into your face while saying “HA!”

However, next week for sure I will be back and up and running. In the meantime I have just a couple of news items for you:

  • Book vs Movie: Our little podcast had our latest episode and here it is Book Vs Movie: Bridget Jones’s Diary. Margo P. and I are launching it on a new website and using a whole new platform to deliver in January so stay tuned for even more fun stuff. Yay!
  • Tria Hair Removal Laser Review: I am in the middle of trying out a new product, the Tria Portable Laser Hair Removal and so far I am loving it. It’s going to be a three-month trial but I will give you more details next week on my Vlog.
  • Running: So I am considering running the Brooklyn Rock & Roll Half Marathon in October and wanted your advice, when should I start training? Please send em your best tips!

Okay–so I will still be here this week for magazine reviews and a possible new playlist. After this week my schedule should hopefully open up and I will be back to Vlogging and giveaways. (Promise!)  Thank you so much for being so understanding.
