the kid is not my son

At 1 P.M. EST the long-awaited Michael Jackson memorial will air, on all the major networks as can be expected. Los Angeles will be pandemonium. it makes me happy I am not there (apologies to those of you that have to deal with that). I'm kind of upset though work has me missing it, just because it would one of those historic remember-when things to watch, like the Diana funeral, the Obama inaugeration and the lunar landing ;) (ah! emoticons are affecting my writing EVERYWHERE!)

you can watch it online at one of the places mentioned here: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-10280634-93.html

Also, "Ten Things I Hate About You" the TV series will premiere on ABC Family at 8 p.m. My feelings on this? mixed, mixed, very mixed. WHO THINKS IT'S GONNA SUCK? ME ME I DO.

And I'm excited, because although I rarely watch Lifetime and advise you to do the same (oh hey Grandma), one of my all-time favorite movies, "Ghost World," will be airing Thursday night at 9. I haven't seen "GW" in FOREVER. but it offers some hilarious performances by Thora Birch (where are you?), ScarJo (!!! before she got huuuuuuge), Steve Buscemi (always the best) and the late Brad Renfro. check out the trailer, straight out of 2001:



For those of us that get our kicks away from our television sets, in Erie, the summer staple "Eight Great Tuesdays" returns at the Liberty Park and Ampitheater. I never go to these things, but this year, since they're offering Arlo Guthrie on the 21st. Tonight opens with Key West Express, and it closes on August 21st with .... RICK MAGEE AND THE ROADHOUSE ROCKERS. ohhhh boy. but let's not think about August, shall we?

"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
