Current Crush: Pushing Daisies.
Happy Pi Day!
Whenever I hear the word pie/pi, I always think of Pushing Daisies.
And this isn't so much a Current Crush as it is a Lifelong Love.
Vintage clothes, vibrant sets, alliterative names, fresh pie. Pushing Daisies, you and I are kindred spirits.
My fall 2008 semester of college, my roommates and I threw a Pushing Daisies party. We invited mostly acquaintances to eat pie and watch the season premier, but that semester we all grew to be a group of friends known as The Family. That is the magic of Pushing Daisies. It really brings people together.
Sadly, that was the last season. The writer's strike really put a dampening on the show. The creator Bryan Fuller was going to continue the series in the form of comics, but I read that DC Comics owns the rights to it and doesn't want to produce the series because they don't think there will be a big enough audience. Guys, we need to change their minds.
If you haven't seen it, check it out from your library or borrow it from me ASAP. I heard it was on Netflix once but isn't any more. Fair warning, it will probably make you crave pie or some type of baked good.
Fun fact: They avoided using blue as much as possible and turned up the saturation a smidge to add to the whimsical aesthetics of the show.
