Let’s get social

 
So, last week we hit 150k followers on our Facebook page.

And I just launched our Instagram account.

We have slightly less followers on there. Let’s fix that.

And a newsletter is coming.

And maybe some vids and designs and comics.

Belero is rocking the news and I’m hoping to carve out the time to rock some extra fun content. Let’s see where this goes.

Best Wallpaper

 
The Charlie Awards continues today with one of my favourite categories: Best Wallpaper. It’s always great to see those who contribute to the site (some for years and years) get their recognition. Take a closer look at the full wallpapers and then vote away!

The next category in the Charlie Awards is to see what upcoming Natalie film you are most anticipating. It’s never completely fair, since some films we know a lot about and some we know next to nothing, but hey – who said life is fair?

Jackie Review

 
I finally had the opportunity to see Jackie and thought I’d quickly weigh in with some thoughts.

I’m not a big fan of biopics in general but was optimistic after hearing that Jackie would be taking an unconventional approach. The film definitely does that, with a structure that hops forward and back along the film’s timeline.

Personally, there were few instances where this approach elevated the material for me. The ending moments, cutting to different scenes while building on an emotional state, are sublime but I mainly found the experience to be quite passive. I never really felt the stakes of what Jackie wanted to achieve.

It’s a bit later this year, in part due to wanting the awards season drama to end, but mostly due to laziness. Nevertheless, the annual Charlie Awards are where Natalie’s fans get to vote on the year in Natland.

We’re starting off with Best Editorial Photo. As always, please click the thumbnails to take in the full picture before casting your vote.

Calendar – February


A couple days late due to overlooking the email from Ana. She was kind enough to put together another wallpaper calendar for all of us Natalie fans. Hope you enjoy it.

Merry Xmas

 
Happy holidays. Happy Hanukkah. Rockin’ Winter Solstice. Etc.

Whatever you celebrate, I hope you’re enjoying it with your loved ones. Ana was kind enough to send in some Christmas fanart, in part because this Jackie photo was too good to resist.

Mathilda by Elesq

A couple weeks back I posted an adorable Mathilda sketch from Elesq and today I have three more. Her best work is actually her more artistic expressions, so be sure to follow her on Instagram.

Calendar – November

 
It’s ridiculous how fast this year has gone. Not ridiculous is this lovely wallpaper calendar from Rachel, which has a slight spooky edge for the occasion of Halloween.

Here are the alternative sizes.

That Time of the Year

 
The holidays are approaching at speed and I wanted to give a shout out to Belero and Rachel for keeping the np.com ship afloat in recent months. More than that, I’d like to ask if you could give a small donation so that the two of them can get a holiday bonus. I say bonus but nobody is earning anything from the site, so if you appreciate all the work that goes into it, a few dollars for the holidays would be great.

As work has taken over my life, I initially felt incredibly guilty, but Belero is doing a better job than I ever did in keeping you all on top of the latest Natalie news. So I’m just as thankful as I’m sure you all are.






In another plug, I wanted to mention that a friend of mine, and a former np.com community member, has self-published a book about her tragic relationship with an ex-boyfriend. I’m incredibly proud of her and if you’re interested in her heartbreaking story, take a look.

The Jackie Trailer Poll

 
The Jackie trailer landed this week so it’s time to check the pulse of Natalie fans. Was it everything you had hoped?

Jackie is the winner of our last poll, which pitted the film against Natalie’s pregnancy and general activity. It was a clear winner but all three options had their supporters.

New Poll + HBO Results

 
We’re well overdue a new poll…hang on, I said that last time didn’t I? More polls! There are obviously a lot of potential topics but I’ve decided to go with the big picture.

As for the last poll, if you can cast your minds back that far, you guys are generally amped about her forthcoming HBO project. Although, one wonders if that is still on the cards with Natalie, given recent events…
