Spotlight Moment: Tony and Traylor

Guess what? In case you haven’t heard the final season of Monk is approaching. It will kickoff on August 7th on USA, and will launch the beginning of the end of a great show.

I would just like to give a shout out to two awesome actors:

Tony Shaloub (Monk) and Traylor Howard, who plays his righteous assistant, Natalie Teeger.

Traylor Howard is the second actress to play Monk’s assistant. The first was Bitty Schram (character: Sharona Fleming), and I will just say Sharona does not compare with Senorita Natalie. NO WAY JOSE!

You may have seen Traylor Howard on the beloved sitcom “Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place.” ----Come on you remember.

But anyway, I look forward to the latest and last season of “Monk,” and hopefully, there will be another guest appearance from Sarah Silverman. She is great on that show as Monk’s fan Marcie. Ah, good stuff.

So All I can say now is,

Tony and Traylor (and Sarah too) thank you for the great seasons, your performances on the show are brilliant. It's no wonder why Monk is nominated for so many awards, and I’ll be watching. Respect.

QATFYG: Who did you like more Natalie or Sharona? Which other characters on Monk do/did you like? Will you watch the last season of Monk? And do you think Traylor Howard looks like the singer/songwriter type, or is it just me?


  1. Dude I loved it when Sarah was on. THIS IS JUST LIKE THE FANFICTION I WROTE!

"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

"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.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
