Before She Was Bella! Sha!




So last night I saw the movie, "The Messengers" on cable, and before and after every commercial they had to remind us viewers that the film starred Twilight's Kristin Stewart. As if we could forget, considering she was the female lead.

I'm just bringing this up because I hear so many people complaining that Kristin Stewart is not the right person to play Isabella Swan in the Twilight Saga films. So here, her role in "The Messengers," was definitely a better role for her. She plays a dysfunctional teen with an attitude problem, and gives off a lot of negative body language (in bed). Just kidding, she doesn't have a sex scene. Unless they edited it out on cable. Who knows (in bed)?
Now I'm killing it. I'm just trying to say that I thought this role was a better fit for KS. Believe it or not.

But speaking of KS, did you know she and co-star Robert Patterinersteinerson both got $12 Million for "New Moon." KS is younger than I am, and I'm lucky if I have $12 in my bank account. Anyone else up for gold digging?

But as for the film, "The Messengers." Well, let's just say casting the right lead actress couldn't save this crap-fest. The film also stars Dylan McDermott (The Practice) and John Corbett (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), both of which are great actors, but this film didn't give them a chance to show any acting potential. It was boring, dull, cheezey, not scary at all for a horror film. And I don't blame the actors here. I'm not sure really, who could save this one.

So my result for "The Messengers," Kristin Stewart is good for her role, but the movie is shite.

QATFYG: So what are other Kristin Stewart roles you like? Have you heard that she is playing Joan Jett in an upcoming film called, "The Runaways?" And are you vampire freaks psyched for New Moon?

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
