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.

"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
