Here is to you Christopher Nolan

So the Oscars are coming up sooner than you think. In fact, they are only a few hours away, and one thing I would like to say before they kickoff the ceremony is “Give some slack to Christopher Nolan!” I would like to see the director of "The Dark Knight", which was one of the best films of the year, nominated for Best Director at the Oscars. The Dark Knight was a fantastic film that destroyed the box office, and it was manned by an equally fantastic director. Nolan turned The Dark Knight into one of the best Batman movies in decades! (Although, some of his fans think he is a lunatic, but that’s beyond the point.) His work should have been rewarded with an Oscar Nomination.

However, I should mention that there was some tough competition for Nolan in that category. People like Danny Boyle, Gus Van Sant, and oh yeah Ron Howard are in the ring, so it must have been a hard call. But all that aside more often than not it seems that during award season action movies get the shaft. (I laughed at that line. I’m so immature. :)
But I should note that Christopher Nolan was nominated for Directors Guild of America award for his accomplishments, so it’s not a total loss.

QATFYG: Should Nolan have been nominated? How do you rank The Dark Knight as a film? And what’s next for Christopher Nolan?

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!
