 Please help the site stay online

Though it embarrasses me quite a bit to publicly acknowledge this, I feel I owe it to my friends and frequent visitors to communicate on the state of KDD and its future.

As everyone knows, a site does not come without expenses, a monthly hosting fee being one of them. As some of you might know, last year, I did not renovate my contract in order to pursue my studies so I can advance my career which, if anything, at least justifies my absence as an administrator, the site not being updated or expanded as frequently as I’d like it to be. And tuition is no fun either, which is now leaving me at this junction: I might not be able to keep the site up after all.

I have already contacted my hosting and lowered my plan and, subsequently, the amount of money I’m due every month. But without a source of income for a good while — my course ends in July and there’s an unpaid internship afterwards — I cannot promise I will have sources to pay.

I would hate to see the site gone. Not only have I dedicated the last two years to it, I have also invested a lot of money into it, from visual bits and bobs to exclusive images you can browse in the gallery. Mostly, it’s been love I have put into every single page of it, every single word. Love, I cannot put a price on. Nor am I out of love yet — I still adore Kat and my website, which I see as an ever-blooming project. There is so much I want to do with it yet. I want to keep its doors open for fans of Kat’s and curious cats everywhere, for years to come.

Unfortunately, that is not possible without funds. As such, I hereby ask for your help to keep the site online by helping me pay for hosting fees. I ask for nothing else — no extras, no personal fees. I have now lowered it to $20/month but even that is astronomical when the tap runs out. I can only ensure that KDD will remain online for the month of April, but not after that.

If you would like to donate funds to KDD, please get in touch via our Twitter @denningsdiaries or our email, katdenningsorg(at)gmail(dot)com, in which case I ask you to write ‘WEBSITE HELP’ as the subject, so I know it’s not a spam email. You stipulate the amount given and all help is welcome.

I am sorry that it’s come to this but I feel desperate. I know I can lose a great thing that is so dear to me, a thought that frightens me, and I know there’s no shame in asking for help. The only thing I’d hate more than to lose the website would be to lose it on the account of my own pride.

This is a sticky post — it will display first for as long as monetary help is needed.

Thank you for reading.

Love,
Sparrow.

 Dollface gets cancelled
Dollface gets cancelled

Sad news, I’m afraid. In a new scoop by TVLine, Hulu has cancelled the show after two seasons, the reason for this decision being, at this moment, unknown to the public. As of now, Dollface has not even been made widely available through Disney+/Star in many countries and thus we can’t help but find this decision hasty.

Here’s to hoping it won’t take long until we hear of new projects for Kat.

Gallery update: Kat on Fallon 2015

We have added 284 HQ screencaps of Kat attending The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon back on April 6, 2015. Sadly, the images pertain to the interview only, as the game segment does not produce screencaptures of good enough quality. Hoping we’ll be able to add them in the future!

 WandaVision Star Kat Dennings Reacts To Disney’s Moon Knight

WandaVision star Kat Dennings claims to have liked Moon Knight so much that it compelled her to dream about it, “which is actually pretty messed up.”

WandaVision’s Kat Dennings, who plays Darcy Lewis in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, shares her reaction to Disney+’s Moon Knight. Following WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What If…?, and HawkeyeMoon Knight is the latest MCU show to premiere on Disney+. Jeremy Slater serves as showrunner of the six-episode series, which is directed by Egyptian filmmaker Mohamed Diab’s team, which consists of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Oscar Isaac stars in Moon Knight as its titular anti-hero alongside Ethan Hawke as Arthur Harrow, May Calamawy as Layla El-Faouly, the late Gaspard Ulliel as Anton Mogart/Midnight Man, and F. Murray Abraham as the Egyptian god Khonshu.

The series follows Steven Grant (Isaac), a mild-manner “gift-shopper” who’s unknowingly a part of a dissociate identity disorder (DID) system. He believes himself to be sleepwalking when, in reality, the mercenary Marc Spector is in control when Steven lays dormant. This situation is complicated by Marc’s life-saving pact with Khonshu, who uses Steven and Marc’s body as an avatar. Moon Knight’s first episode dropped on March 30 and has since been praised by many on social media, including MCU veteran, Dennings.

Dennings recently took to Twitter to share her reaction to Moon Knight’s pilot episode. Ironically, she claims to have enjoyed it so much that she even dreamed about it. Check out the tweet below:

As an origin story for the titular character, Moon Knight is quickly separating itself from other MCU shows. Its tone has been described as being a mix between Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters, and Fight Club — which is proving to be an adept assessment. By following Steven, rather than Marc, Moon Knight’s main character serves as a (unreliable) surrogate for audiences in a way that’s comparable to The Narrator’s experience in Fight Club. Compile that with Marc’s globe-trotting adventures aimed at preventing a cult leader from resurrecting the Egyptian goddess/demoness Amitt, and it’s the thing Dennings’ dreams are made of.

Wednesday, Moon Knight released its second episode. The series is already a hit with MCU stars, critics, and audiences alike with an 86% critics score and a 94% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. That said, Isaac’s future in the MCU remains up in the air as his contract with Disney/Marvel Studios currently doesn’t extend beyond Moon Knight. As for Dennings, who appeared in Thor (2010), Thor: The Dark World (2013) and WandaVision, it doesn’t look like she will be returning as Darcy in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. However, Dennings recently voiced her character in an episode of Disney+’s What If..?. Presumably, fans will be seeing more of Steven/Marc and Darcy in the future.

 Dollface merchandise is available!
Dollface merchandise is available!

Hulu has just opened the official Dollface shop, featuring apparel, mugs and stickers thus far. The t-shirt and hoodie, featuring the show’s floral logo as seen in the promotional material for the first season, are available in a range of sizes and different colour options.

Sadly, the items ship only to the USA and Puerto Rico, so the time has yet to come when I’ll be able to sip my coffee from an official Miss Dennings mug. Refer to the shop for more details.

You can peruse the catalogue below:
