Feminist "Of A…" Titles

In Uncategorized on June 29, 2008 at 12:45 am

WARNING: THIS HAS BEEN MODIFIED FROM ITS ORIGINAL POST. I DID NOT INTEND FOR THIS POST TO SAY THAT ZACK WAS A GIRLY STUPID THING. I MEANT HIS SHEETS ONLY. THE ERROR HAS BEEN REMEDIED. PLEASE DISREGARD MY MISTAKE. AND ALSO FORGIVE MY TYPING IN ALL CAPS. LOVE, JOSH.

I think it is important to point out that people who write chick-flicks, or cinematographic scripts aimed at attracting homo-sapiens of the female persuasion, all have too much of the same pattern in their titles. It is always “[media form] of a [girly stupid thing]”. Allow me to point out a few examples.

Memoirs of a Geisha
Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
Secret Diary of a Call Girl
Diary of Anne Frank
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (Parts 1 and 2)
Sex of the City
Diary of a Mad Black Woman
Grapes of Wrath
Song of Solomon
Designs of Zack’s Bedsheets
Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen
More will follow as soon as I obtain more intel. Please feel free to contribute. Totes.

  1. i would like to point out the obvious flaws in your theory.grapes and bedsheets are hardly media forms. and geishas and call girls are definitely more of a guy thing. as are wrath and zack. well, maybe not zack..in addition, quite a few of your examples really can’t be considered to be directed specifically at a female audience.with less than 200,000 words in current use in the english language, and ‘of’ being one of the most common, it isn’t surprising that a handful of titles utilize this popular word.and by the way, it’s sex AND the city.

  2. p.s. you forgot to include “Musings of Josh Huesped” in the list

  3. confessions of a teenage dramaqueenconfessions of a shopaholicconfessions of a sociopathic social climber (i’m not making that up, it’s got jennifer love hewitt in it)confessions of a dangerous minddiray of a hitmandeath of a salesmanthe birth of a nationshadow of a doubtscent of a womananatomy of a murderdeath of a presidentthe portrait of a ladyeternal sunshine of a spotless minddeath of a prophethouse of waxhouse of a thousand corpsesto name a few..i need to get a life instead of continuously commenting on your blog.
