Spotlight/ Shoutout: Sarah Hyland



Hello World,
So last week’s Spotlight/Shoutout on Kyle MacLachlan (and unintentionally on OG Mudbone) was a huge success.

This week’s Star of the hour/day/minute is up-and-coming television extraordiness, Sarah Hyland. The reason I chose to post on Sarah H is because the first time I learned her name was when she guest starred on “Law and Order: SVU,” playing a sleep-deprived psychotic.
The commercials hyped it up saying “This girl’s performance will shock you.” And although, “Law and Order” shows say that every SINGLE week, this time they meant it. She blew me out of the water.

Psychotically, sociopathically, sympathetically, emotionally, all across the board. It was good shit!

I can’t find a link to that episode, “Hothouse,” but it will probably be on NBC in their rotation soon. If anyone has time to see it, please do. It’s one of the best SVU’s I’ve seen.

And it’s not just me that thinks so; Dick Wolf Productions loves Sarah Hyland. She’s guest starred on SVU twice, as well as on the original “Law and Order” and “Trial By Jury.” All that’s missing is CI on her filmography, but I don’t like CI. Hmm, maybe if Sarah H played a crazy person on CI, I’d watch it. Also she’s had reoccurring roles on “Lipstick Jungle,” and “One Life to Live.”

So what’s new with this Scooby Doo?
Sarah H is going to star on a show called “Modern Family.” I know little about this, but I think she’s playing an angsty teen with a bunch of issues. COOL! She’ll be perfect at that. AIRS Sept. 23rd on ABC! In the picture she's the one in the hooker boots.
And in 2010, she’ll appear in the film, “The Science of Cool.”


QATFYG: Do you have a favorite Sarah Hyland series/role? What is your favorite Law and Order series? And Does Sarah Hyland look like she could be Amanda Seyfried’s little sister? I didn’t think about it, until Brittany posted yesterday. Thank you Britt!

PS: There is also a comedienne named Sarah Hyland........this is not her.

  1. I see a semblance. Amanda Seyfried is hotter though. :P

  2. Ah, SVU is great. I did find a copy of that episode online a few weeks ago. "Hothouse" but since then I guess it was taken down.

    I am looking forward to "Modern Family" tho. Maybe, it'll be a hit.

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
