I showed that (link) to my brother- he says something to the effect that "the dog is living better than most people." Only in New York! (fyi: I've never been to NYC).

I used to have a dachshund back in the day. Fritsy. I miss him. I really miss having a dog, oh god. In several years I might be running around with some dog attached to me acting as a suffragette child. I don't foresee this NOT happening. better dogs than cats, anyway. Today, while waiting for the bus, I discovered some of my neighbors have a sheepdog, so I'm probably going to steal it and change its name to, I don't know, Madonna Guy Ritchie Ciccone. something FLASHY.

in other news, I got my grades back, which was a surprisingly good deal. a D+ I can live with. no Dean's List, but considering how insane life has been, well, cool. A's and B's everywhere else.

my friend asked me how the job search was going....not so well. I've applied so many places but the economy is rough and there's nothing around. if something works out, considering how badly I do need the moneys right now, I should just enjoy this free time, because it's the first time since December I have not been stressed out. there are good things: all the flowers are in bloom, Gwen in the future!, everything's fragrant, my favorite restaurant ever (and attractive waitpeople and the thought of Craigslist but NAHHH too creepy!) walks to abandoned churches, a quiet cell phone, "Frasier," the air in the morning and breakfasts outside (! not quite BUT ALMOST). people seeing me in plaid shorts. bus rides in which people aren't calling me "a fucking dog" (o hay theme). STARBUCKS WITH ANOTHER BLOGGER (HI).

but without a job, I feel like a failure and that's no good. I feel like people will see me and be like WE THOUGHT YOU DIED/DROPPED OUT OF COLLEGE/WERE IN A SPECIAL PROGRAM AND YOUR MOM BRAIDS YOUR HAIR.

I saw a herd of Jehovahs today. they (appropriately) avoided my house.

"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

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
