i'm back i'm back i'm back

(from earlier- now that my internet connection is baaack. thanks verizon).

I don't think the reviews made this look so fantastic, which is disappointing to me. Nora Ephron isn't as bad as I'd like her to be- "You've Got Mail" was on TV again last night and OH SHIT I WATCHED IT FOR THE 200TH TIME. it's sad, really. I remember being younger- in fifth grade? and going through this odd, odd Meg Ryan movie phase. like, I just had to see her movies and understand romance. and I'd hate to say how deep of an impact that and "City of Angels" made on my psyche. regardless, I've never seen "When Harry Met Sally" (I'LL HAVE WHAT SHE'S HAVING) or "Sleepless In Seattle" (you're moving to Seattle? it rains nine months out of the year there!). okay tangent. I mean, Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, you think this movie has something going for it. plus Julia Child seemed like one hell of a fun lady. well maybe film critics are full of shit.

Nora Ephron is what Leslie Feist will look like in thirty years. I wish I had more appreciation for the culinary arts. maybe I should pick up "The Art of Cooking" and look past my microwave? no I like my microwave. foodie-ism, perhaps. Julia Child was a virgin until her thirties? hot damn, I don't feel so bad anymore. maybe if I can't get a human to, I'll work with a cake....

Amy Adams, to me, is like...the epitome of the perfect female. like, if Galatea came to life again, she'd be Amy Adams. I saw "Enchanted" and I hate to say it, but I spent most of the movie gawking at her (and I'm thinking "you perv this is a kids' movie"). this being said, AMY, WHY? YOUR HAIR IS AMAZING, WHY THE SHORT HAIR? pretty girls getting hair cuts that age them a decade is a no-go for me. please stop this trend, thank you.

well, it's about a blogger following in the footsteps of ro-ho-ho Julia fucking Child, so maybe one day they'll make a film about me. with Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Chad Lowe and Winona Ryder.

MERYL STREEP, SHE'S A BEAST. DO NOT CROSS THE STREEPIE. okay, I'm writing this right now with "The View" on it because I have a love/hate relationship with "The View." When I travel to NYC I'm getting tickets for it so I can throw something at Elizabeth Hasslebeck. God, Meryl is one gorgeous older woman. I want to be her when I'm sixty, and I want to make spaghetti for my daughter's friends when they visit from Vassar. Little Blong-Chen will be a microbiology major fyi.

If you want some live action entertainment, please see "The Wedding Singer" on its final weekend. God, I love that movie, and I dislike Adam Sandler so much. "Funny People?" not seeing it sorry. I am over Judd Apatow- "The Forty Year Old Virgin" is where it ended and began for me. anywayyyyyyy, "The Wedding Singer" is such a good movie and I've heard the musical version is even better, so it'd be worth to check out in Erie. I applaud the Playhouse for taking it on, I was surprised.

You could also go to one of the many ethnic festivals (always) and eat sausage (thanks newspaper) OR you could go to Key West Phest and see former American Idol contestant and country star Josh Gracin. and hang out with middle-aged Jimmy Buffet fans. me? no.

By the way, in case you didn't realize, Paula Adbul left American Idol. my heart is broken into a million scattered pieces.

"The Hurt Locker" is also opening in Erie this weekend. likely depressing but I've heard it's very good, so check it out if you get the chance. I'm still waiting for "500 Days."

How did you survive the TWITTERAPOCALYPSE OF 2009? I need to see George Stephanopolous' thoughts on this before I can continue my evening. I wanted to tweet about not being able to tweet. therein, the problem.

my internet was down for near 24 hours, which was funny as hell because people needed to get a hold of me and my cell phone is gone and my debit is gone and everything is gone. so I watched a British TV show and went to bed early. and had a nightmare about a shaggy, overweight Chevy Chase. it was bad- I woke out of breath and shaking. I've had other bad dreams that involve Chevy Chase. I'm starting to think he's an evil archetype. I wonder what the Mayans would say. seriously- I dreamt that I had a brain tumor in high school and he was my doctor. the like, next week, my dad had a brain tumor-thing. weird.

if you're out and about in Edinboro tomorrow night, SAY HI TO MY INTOXICATED SELF.

"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
