when watching vh1 in the morning

it seems every time I come into contact with Paolo Nutini, it's via VH1 and their little morning music video blocks (what is it called? Jumpstart? well at least they play music videos).

There's no use in a subterfuge here- I'm a sucker for a good music video. My secret ambition? TO DIRECT THEM SHHH.

anyway, last time I saw him: few years ago, VH1 "YOU OUGHTA KNOW." the melancholy soulfULness of "Last Request" really hit me deep. cut like a knife (she is out of my life- haha MJ reference never mind). I thought it was totally relevant to my situation at the time (it wasn't- well, maybe vaguely, but I think this person would have rather been bathed in sulphuric acid than to let me hold them, personally).

2009- I find myself reunited with Paolo, thanks VH1!

Paolo is an incredibly talented singer-songwriter from Scotland. And I know it's easy to brush these guys off but he begs another listen, especially if you have any estrogen. I used to listen to "Last Request," cry and spoon myself to sleep. no shame here.

anyway, I caught this in between parts of "Practical Magic" (SANDRA BULLOCK AND NICOLE KIDMAN IN THE SAME MOVIE WHO WOULD HAVE THUNK) and now I'm hooked again thanks Paolo:



I swear to God that makes me teary-eyed every time I see it. youtube for the past half an hour. it's cool. I'm such a pussy it's sick.

well I'm some stain there on your bedsheet, you're my diamond in the rough.

WHATEVER I LIKE IT

"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

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
