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!

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"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.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
