"Simpin for That Mona Lisa Smile"

Our intern is in studio and helps Jay and Eric to gain a detailed understanding of the word "simp," how young men simp and a realization is gained that males in general tend to simp at some point in order to keep the species going. (Don't lie to yourselves fellas, we see you). 

Various meme genres are discussed and the Barry Wood meme is broken down. The history behind the meme is discussed. If you do not know who Barry Wood is...he's the well endowed man sitting on the edge of the bed. The group agrees that part of the appeal of the meme is the confusion behind how he got there and his confusing facial expression. 

Fashion is beyond the Academy and they don't have a grasp of it. 

They have even less of a grasp on TikTok. 

Thanks for listening. Be Cool. Keep Learning.

SBG 29: Mona Lisa Smile

Play

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Mona Lisa Smile Should've Been Gay. The IMDB synopsis is as follows: A free-thinking art professor teaches conservative 1950s Wellesley girls to question their traditional social roles. This movie has the highest number of characters that should've been gay out of any other movie we've done. Katherine Ann Watson (Julia Roberts) ends the movie without any man and was the catalyst for quite a few of her students' discovering their sexuality. Amanda Armstrong (Juliet Stevenson), the only out lesbian in the movie, gets far too little screen time and leaves us too soon. Giselle Levy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is our favorite bisexual and it was impossible to pick just one person to ship her with. Betty Warren (Kirsten Dunst) is the dark horse gay of the film, serving up some gay goodness when she leaves her husband and moves to Greenwich Village with Giselle. Honorable mention to Giselle and Connie (Ginnifer Goodwin) for literally always being on top of each other or kissing each other's cheeks. Oh and did we mention Marcia GAY Harden?! Enough said.

Julia Roberts: Confessions, Mona Lisa Smile & Closer

Play
Read more

After her Oscar win, Julia slowed down a bit. In addition to the first Ocean's movie, she took a small, scene-stealing part in pal George Clooney's Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. But she was clamoring for another go at Oscar glory, so she went the route all respected actors must go at one point or another: an unorthodox teacher whose most important lessons happen outside the classroom. In Mona Lisa Smile, Roberts plays an art history professor who opens the eyes of her students and then, in an emotionally resonant ending... leaves for Europe? 

Either which way, she earned $25 million for the part, awards be damned. She followed it up with Mike Nichols' Closer, featuring an ensemble cast of Jude Law, Natalie Portman, and Clive Owen. Join us as we discuss To Sir With Love, whether Helsinki is a romantic getaway, and some of Wellesley's more conservative traditions. 

Hosted by Michael (@cateblanchetttt), with Ryley Trahan (@TheRyleyTrahan) and Walt Hickey (@walthickey). Please let us know your thoughts on the new miniseries by leaving us a review on iTunes!
