ABC Family Thus Far

Okay as Brittany mentioned tonight was the premier of "Ten Things I Hate About You" on ABC Family. It's the latest addition to the ABC Family summer lineup, which is going something like this....

Let's start with

Ten Things I Hate About You:
Okay, the movie was great. I've seen it a thousand times, and I thought the show had a lot to live up to. The result. Fail! The characters they've recreated have lost their charm/likability/intrigue and a bunch of other stuff. I will admit that I like their version of Kat, but she still doesn't live up to the Julia Stiles performance. With television the first episode of the series isn't always the best, so I will give this one another chance.

The Secret Life of the American Teenager:
BORING! I used to be excited for new episodes of this show about teen drama and angsty issues, but lately it's just been dull. This season has started off as a bust
With the exception of one or two high points, it's been lame and not worth watching. Their attempts to be dramatic have not been interesting. "Secret Life" has a habit of running in place with their story lines, so something decent better happen or else I'll find something else to do on Monday nights. Come on Molly Ringwald, SAVE THE SHOW!!

And of course

Make It or Break It:
It's the show about gymnastics. I saw the previews, and I thought there was no way I'd like this. But surprisingly, it's good. The characters are likable. Including Candace Cameron Bure.....otherwise known as DJ Tanner from "Full House." (And the man she's dating on the show also has the last name Tanner :) Anyway, I like the characters on this. And it's also nice to see something that goes beyond the standard basic high school drama. The gymnastics angle is pretty entertaining.
Result: WATCH IT!

Coming Soon.

Ruby and Rockits (Or something like that I forget):
See how interested I am? This is Alexa Vega (Spy Kids Trilogy) and Icon, David Cassidy's new show about a singer who finds herself in some kind of showbiz family. I don't know too many details because in all honesty I could not care less. I probably won't watch this show unless I'm really bored. In other words it doesn't look very good.

QATFYG: Did you watch the first episode of Ten Things? Are you excited about Candace Cameron on Make It or Break It? And is ABC Family going downhill?

"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

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
