10 Pop Culture Things I'm Looking Forward to In 2013

 In no particular order-

From Us Weekly

1. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting the Golden Globes- Almost makes up for the fact that those fools never nominated Nick Offerman. These two are awesome and hilarious, and I can't wait to see how the show goes. Plus, as I write this, I realize Amy Poehler and I currently have the same haircut.

2. The Heat- Speaking of lady teams, this movie looks really funny, and I love Sandra Bullock as any sort of government agent. I also love Melissa McCarthy, and I am happy they are in a straight comedy (as opposed to romantic comedy, which has been feeling like a pretty dried out genre as of late). One of the only trailers I have seen lately where I genuinely can't wait to see it. Just looks like fun.

 3. Arrested Development Season 4- Yes, I am one of those people, and I am only a little bit ashamed. But I just love Lucille so much, and I am really interested to see what they do with the story with this much of a gap in it. It is a new idea, and I just hope it is as funny as the original show was.
4. That Skylar Astin is getting more work- This kid was so good in Pitch Perfect, so I am excited to see he has 2 movies coming out in 2013- 21 and Over and Cavemen. Who knows if either will be good, but kudos for him for keeping at it.

5. Lynn Hershman Leeson- The Agent Ruby Files at SFMoMA- show I am most excited for this year. I love  Lynn Hershman.

6. 56 Up- Michael Apted's documentary series started with 7 Up. He started following a group of British children 49 years ago to trace how education/ social class effect how people end up. Except, when you just keep following them, the plot keeps changing. They have to deal with the notoriety, and they keep changing their mind about participating. In 49 Up at least 2 claimed this was their last one. Has just become about aging, life, and expectations. You should see it, but start with 7 Up first. It's a strange and lovely series, and last i knew they were all on Netflix. I can't wait to see where they are now.
7. Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing- Looks great in that "Not trying to hard, just hiring people I like" kind of way.

Ok, well, I am stopping at 7, because I don't have any others fresh in my mind! My brother could do a better list than this, since he actually pays attention. I like my culture 30 or 40 years late. I am not cool enough to be on the cutting edge.
