Amazing Girls On The Radio. Sorta.

This is an audio program Sadie did for WFMU. Yeah, it’s basically just the essay with apropriate Amazing Girl music. Play May 26th.

I wrote this in a fury some years ago and then posted it on my blog.  It’s kind of how Jess and I became friends!

The Manic Pixie Dream Girls

Onion’s AV Club did the lord’s work today, running a piece on the Amazing Girl in cinema - known as “The Manic Pixie Dream Girl.”In it, they called out some of the worst offenders - Natalie Portman in Garden State, Kirsten Dunst in Elizabethtown (and wow, now that I think on’t, Cameron Crowe is a major offender - Penny Lane wasn’t enough?!) and, hopefully, bringing the pernicious phenom to the attention of a larger audience.
