THE MINDY PROJECT PILOT REVIEW: The pilot of The Mindy Project is now on Hulu, a month earlier than its TV premiere. If you heart all things Mindy Kaling, then you already know you’ll enjoy this show. Kaling is probably the most relateable celebrity for the twenty-something female set like myself. She is unabashedly a pop-culture obsessed, boy-crazy, rom-com loving, drama queen. And she somehow makes you feel okay about being the same way. Her character Mindy is much the same. The pilot lays out the usual Fox comedy sitcom hijinks for a female front both wicked smaht and adorably goofy. But in there you get a bite of Kaling’s sharp wit and I look forward to watching more of that.
Plus, aside from Lena Dunham’s GIRLS having Jorma Taccone of Lonely Island as a hot douchebag artist, there aren’t too many shows that will feature the kind of guys I’m into as the hot ones. I mean, Bill Hader as the heartbreaker ex-boyfriend?! Only in my dreams. And Mindy’s. Tune in HERE.
Once upon a time, Caitie had a thing for Leonardo Dicaprio.
What scene are you most looking forward to seeing on the big screen?!
Not actual, physical, stalking though. I’m talking the more standard accepted practice of exhaustive Facebook research. Going back 128 pages on some hot dude/lady’s Tumblr. Covertly visiting his/her twitter page every day but not actually following him/her (because that would obviously blow your cover). The most basic Google search can yield some of the most interesting results.
After realizing that I spend maybe a little too much time internet creepin’, then deciding I’m not willing to stop, I figured I might as well have a rocking soundtrack to accompany all the wrong doings. And if there’s anything good in this world, there are more cyberstalkers like myself out there. So let’s get to it. (Click the links to take you straight to the groovy grooves on Spotify!)
1. In Motion - Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross
This song is for the beginning stages of your search. You only know his first name, his phone number, and that maybe he mentioned he’s from Maine but you were a little woozy that night and maybe he actually said Ukraine? Not to worry. Pop on this baby and soon you’ll be Zuckerberging all over the place. Your fingers will be typing so fast it’ll look like a time lapse! Reverse 411 that shit! Take advantage of facebook networks! You can do this, you computer genius. I know you can.
2. Creep - TLC
Okay, time to take it down a notch. You found his OKCupid by searching his race and keyword “Blank Check” cause you guys had a weird conversation about when/where a mansion could have possibly cost $250,000, and figured on the off chance he listed it as a favorite movie. BINGO. He did. Now it’s time to keep this shit on the DL and change your privacy settings. Make sure he can’t see you lurking on his profile just yet, but take comfort in the fact that T-Boz, Chili, and Left Eye are with you 100%.
3. Mr. Sandman - The Chordettes
Listen to this when you’re scrolling through his profile pictures. Sigh, so dreamy. Get it? Heh.
4. Dream About The Future - The Apples In Stereo
If you’re not picturing your future life with this guy yet, you’re probably not doing it right. Put on this song to kickstart the process. Ah, can’t you see it now? Jogging together through a wooded glen (but normal speed, none of that weird Twilight stuff), cooking spaghetti together and putting sauce on each other’s noses, watching Carl Sagan’s Cosmos together on the couch and crying, picking out eggplant at the farmer’s market… is this helping? Are you imagining it?
5. I’m Gonna Get You - Bizarre
Yo, DJ, pump this party! Honestly, when I think stalking boys, I think 90s hits. The two are much better together than apart. Sing it out! “Why waste your time?! YOU KNOW you’re gonna be mine.”
6. Anytime - Bryan McKnight
Might as well keep this 90s train rolling. This is the last song on the list, because this song is for when you’re laying awake in bed, contemplating all the information you’ve just unearthed and wondering if maybe he’s done the same thing to you this evening. “Do I ever cross your miiiind? Anyytiiiime?” It’s possible. Anything is possible.
Happy Valentine’s Day from Rubbish! (and Sonny Corleone)
