erie comedian makes homecoming

this thoroughly impresses me and I am rarely, if ever, impressed by anything that stems from my hometown.

if I didn't already make plans for Tuesday night (and I never make plans! figure that out) I would totally check out Julia Lillis, a native of Erie, at Junior's. She seems....genuinely funny, and like her career is on the rise. which is exciting. she's good! I don't find a lot of comedians that appealing (spare like, Sarah Silverman and Zach G) but she's not bad at all. a lot of her act is musical comedy...she does a song about Mr. Zach Braff that is like, the creme de la creme of her act or something. some French saying.

you can check her out at her website (www.julialillis.com) or just watch this bit:





SO TRUE


p.s. I'm curious to know what Dairy Queen she worked at and if she served my younger self at some point. kismet? synchronicity? hmmm, MAYBE.

p.s. I'd like to stand-up comedy I just don't have the balls for it. well put some alcohol in me and I have the genes for anything. YAY GENETICS

part 2 of this post so I don't keep spamming you

speaking of impressive Erie natives, the former Washington editor of the New York Times, Robert H. Phelps, will be signing copies of his book "God and the Editor: My Search For Meaning at the New York Times" at Barnes & Nobles next Saturday. He would later move onto the Boston Globe. I would go to this but I have plans. but uh seeeing as I may have a career in journalism in front of me, this wouldn't be a bad idea.

that will be going on from 10 am to noon. it might be too early for the likes of you.

"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
