Taking a Chance on Ruby

So in an earlier post I mentioned that I would only watch the new show “Ruby and The Rockits,” if I was really bored. Well that moment has come believe it or not.

Well, that time of the week is here again, and there is another new episode on tonight.

From one episode we can see the show doesn’t kick off in the best way, by that I mean it has an awful theme song….seriously. I’ve never disliked an opening credits/theme so much.

Actually, R and the & R wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It was funny, and I like some of the dynamic. But there are just so many flaws.

For the first episode they just jumped in and gave like 15 seconds of back-story for some characters leading everything up to the present. They better fill in a lot of these gaps in the coming weeks, or else it’ll just be kind of spacey. (and not like Kevin Spacey, somebody better hit the cymbal on that one…please don’t.)

Also, David Cassidy stars on the show as a rock star (big surprise), and his character is named David Gallagher. I wish they could be more original because everyone knows David Gallagher as the actor from all those 7th Heaven episodes and his “badass” appearances on NUMB3RS as Buck Winters. Badass in quotation marks. That character needs a better name; although, it’s a little late.

So yes, I will watch this show, but I only give it a

5.5 out of 10

It’s fine, but it doesn’t have enough to make it stand out amongst other sitcoms. I mean, it’s not like we’ve never seen a show about a family in the music business before. This one needs to come up with something more original to stay afloat.


QATFYG:
Will you watch the next episode of “Ruby and the Rockits,” tonight at 8:30 on ABC Family?

PS:
I saw a preview for this show with a friend, and she said the girl playing Ruby “Looks like she’s 30.” Poor Alexa Vega, the darling from Spy Kids and Odd Girl Out. In fact she’s not 30 (only 20) and about only two months older than the person who made that comment. Zap.

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-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"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
