The aggressive good cheer of the holidays affects everyone differently: you can get carried along in a tidal wave of joy and eggnog, or it can remind you of what you don’t have: Cleaver-like parents or a significant other to share it all with, let alone one who lets Jon Hamm talk him or her into buying you a Mercedes. And if you’ve suffered a recent loss in your family, the season can be heartbreaking. More
God, I’m sorry, I just find this royal birth watch business a bit boring. I mean, we know what’s going to happen, right? She’s going to have a baby. Whether it is a boy or a girl, it will inherit the throne, one day, like a bajillion years from now, because the royals live FOREVER. I suppose there’s some suspense to whether it will be a boy or a girl, or if they will name it Diana, but not enough. But take heart! These completely unexpected things could happen. More

I feel like there’s little TheGloss can say on the topic of James Gandolfini‘s death, save that it is terrible and tragic for anyone to die unexpectedly at 51. Fortunately, in those 51 years, Gandolfini played on of the best characters on television. His depiction of Tony Soprano will live on forever as an emblem of a certain kind of masculinity.
