Tonight I'm gonna be starting Persuasion by Jane Austen, as chosen by you 😂 I have never heard of this book, and now Mr Darcy is done and dusted, I'm out of Austen characters.

I guess there'll be some persuading, both good and bad, however 👀 as always no spoilers!

Right so we have a Walter Eliott and two more Elizabeths like Jane pls can I have some new names!!!!

Sad about his wife tho, that's tough.

I like the different feeling to this book!!!

Oooh so we've got a silly dad and a sensible (albeit dead) mum

Is this also a love story??? An older persons love story??? Okay I'm down for it, let's go Jane, I'm here for the ride!!!!

Ooooh okay so we got debt problems!!! Alright yeah I'm into this!!! Curb your spending Sir Walter!!!! I love the ladies working out a 7 year repayment plan omg!!! Jane Austen writes very good female characters!!!

I guess retrenching is repaying debts???

Oh wait nevermind lmfao they said fuck it and are just gonna leave the hall 😂😂

On to Bath!

Also is Elizabeth seriously again the heroine because Jane we need to talk about diversifying your names

Oooo I very much like Mr Shepard's daughter's point about how the only people with 'health' are the rich people of leisure who don't have to work etc because UH YEAH THIS STILL HOLDS TRUE!!!!!

Ah HAH so Anne was in love with a Captain Wentworth who was decidedly Not Rich Enough for her!!! I am hazarding a guess she was...


not to marry him 👀

Alas it is bed time but I'm excited for the next bit!!

Listening to Pride and Predujice for the first time and Mrs Bennet was JUST about to describe the lace on one of Mr Bingley's sister's dresses and Mr Bennet cut her off!!!! GODDAMN IT I WANNA HEAR ABOUT THE LACE!!!! WHAT LACE WAS IT!!!

Also don't spoil me for this book lol
Honestly never read the classics and haven't seen any of the films but I do now know this is the Mr Darcy one and I cannot remember which sister he ends up with but i think this one is seen as A Great Love Story and I'm eager to see if it is or if it's just cis nonsense tbh
If you have strong feelings about this book put them in a lil notepad and let me know when I'm done with it 😂

ALREETY MY PALS! It's time for #YubiViews and Die Hard!

Here's what I know about Die Hard:

1) It has the bald car man in it.
2) It's apparently a christmas movie (??)
3) There's death and / or hardness (???)
4) I think this is the movie where there's lots of driving and-

explosions??? I think?
4) I think bald car man is Jason Statham (who's name is not said stat-ham, which i know bcs my dad lost his shit when i said 'look that's jason stat-ham' when he was on a bus, except it wasn't it was another bald man and it's not stat-ham)

5) This movie is WAY OLDER than I thought the listing says 1988?! Is that right!? is this the right movie?! I was sure it was like, 2000s?!

I'm hoping, as always, it's an alien, mummy, spider-free film, but I've learned never to let your guard down.

ALREET PALS, tonight we're gonna watch Howl's Moving Castle for #YubiViews!

Now some of ye may know that I actually lived in Japan for a while and hold 2 whole degrees in Japanese language, a bachelors and a masters! I've seen a lot of Ghibli movie, but never this one.

I don't really have a good reason why? But I've been since told it's also a book??? No idea what happens in it. I guess there's a guy called Howl (excellent name). I guess his castle moved. Did he move with his castle? Are we castle hunting? Is this all -

2/- #YubiViews
an extended metaphor for human destruction of wildlife and the rapidly diminishing experience of childhood in an increasingly lonely and disconnected world, Miyazaki-san???

Also if the castle moves rapidly and unpredictably, i will be scared of it. Just saying.

ALREET MY PALS! Tonight on #YubiViews we watch... THE MUMMY! (1999 version)! We will also be doing our Help tweets every 10th tweet, so please check them out and help those in need!

As per usual I've never seen the Mummy. I think I had smushed these films and Indiana Jones-

all into one big movie, and was horrified to find out that 1) there's more than one indiana / mummy movie, and 2) Harrison Ford is not in the Mummy.

going out on a limb and guessing Brendon Frasier or whoever is in it seeing as people said that name a lot!

Now as i thought Indy/Mummy (terrible ship most likely but we'll see) was the same film I'm guessing this is a rag-tag Man and also A Lady in Another Country, Plundering Graves and Fucking Shit Up for Patriotism and Money. I guess there's also going to be a Mummy.

Tonight on #YubiViews we tackle Jurassic Park. It's old. It's a classic. It's gonna be goddamn terrifying. What do I know abt Jurassic Park? Well:

1) Dinosaurs. I fuckin HATE dinosaurs. I'm terrified of them.
2) A park. Parks are fine. Unless they're filled with dinosaurs.

3) I'm gonna out on a limb here and say People Realise A Park Full Of Dinosaurs Is A Bad Idea. A dino probably eats someone. Whoever the kind of edgy sad man with a badboy style is will be the one who dies. Probably by dino. Rip in pieces in advance.

4) I'm 99.9% sure a T-Rex is in it. I think also a... diplodunkas? long neck one? Also probably velocoraptors. Hate them.

... idk anything else. Dinos, it's bad, we kill all of them?
