POLL: What should the next Liz Tells Frank Live cover?

We’re working on this question right now, as plans begin to emerge for the March edition! And maybe you might help us choose between…

(Anyone who mentions the “Rollerball” remake gets kicked in the nards. Just an FYI.)

Welcome to Liz Tells Frank!

Liz Tells Frank What Happened In… is a lot of things:

  • A live show and podcast!
  • A series of books, ranging from best-of collections to the ever-popular Skip It/Watch It Guides.
  • A blog going back years, that covers everything from Arrow to Zardoz.

The one common thread: Saving people, most especially including Liz’s friend Frank, from some of pop culture’s most ridiculous moments. Enjoy!

Liz Tells Frank “50 Shades of Grey” LIVE: Coming Soon!

Dear Frank,

We did it before — now we’re going to do it again.

It’s happening. It’s in North Hollywood. It’s open to the public. And yes, technically we’ve been over this one. But NOT LIKE THIS. Guarantee it. (For one thing — snacks and prizes! Those things are fun, Frank!)

Info available here on Eventbrite or on Facebook. Made possible by the wonderful folk of Nerdstrong.

Ready your inner goddess, Frank. I’m sure she’s already quivering with anticipation.

Love,
Liz

Liz Tells Frank “Sucker Punch” LIVE: Coming Soon!

Dear Frank,

Where are you gonna be Friday, November 14th? Same place I’m gonna be — in a world of pain.

It’s happening. It’s in North Hollywood. It’s open to the public. It’s Sucker Punch, easily one of the dumbest movies ever, and thus ripe for the Liz Tells Frank Live treatment.

Info available here on Eventbrite or on Facebook. Made possible by the wonderful gentlemen of Nrdfit.

Like the Sucker Punch trailer promises, Frank — you will not be prepared.

Love,
Liz

Liz Tells Frank Why Liz Tells Frank Has Been Pretty Quiet Lately

Dear Frank,

In the many years since I started telling you about stuff, I have had many jobs. They have varied in weirdness and awesomeness, but I have always felt lucky to have them, and also felt lucky for the flexibility and/or regularity they afforded me. When you run a not-for-profit media blog, after all, a day job that is easy on your after-hours is pretty much essential.

However, about a month ago, I started a new job. And this one is not so easy on my after-hours at this moment. It’s a manageable situation that I look forward to fixing in some fashion, but I wanted to inform you (and the other lovely people who stop by this blog and tell me about how because I didn’t like a shitty movie I’m “really hurting”) that I’m working on making work work with the rest of my life.

Because while posting here might continue to be a little slow, FOR HUGH’S SAKE I have written half of a Hook post and I am NOT going to let that fall under the category of wasted effort. DEATH FIRST.

So, more soon. Promise. But, y’know, I might need a little time.

Love,
Liz

Open Thread: What Should Frank Be Told About in 2014?

Time marches on, and so does the telling of Frank what happened in stuff. But what stuff should he be told about? You guys tell me!

I currently have plans to tackle RuPaul’s Drag Race in January; other currently pending suggestions include Ayn Rand’s works and Dragonball Z. But maybe you guys have ideas! Better ideas! So sound off here in the comments or one of our other social media things! And Happy New Year!
