THE BEETS


Last week, when I caught Vivian Girls (! good show) at the Warhol (AMAZING, intimate venue) in Pittsburgh, I was introduced to the noisy rock of a band called the Beets (and no, not these guys, what an oddly detailed article).

at first I was pissed off because I didn't feel like sitting through an opening act, much less an opening act I knew nothing about and didn't even realize would be there. changed my mind soon after these three young guys took the stage- and, seriously, they're a cute group, you just want to take them home and make them soup and possibly get them high- and started screaming their bloody heads off about wearing black and the Devil. very shoegazey with hints of bands like No Age and Times New Viking. with a small touch of '50s rock flavor! and, because Vivian Girls were equally as noisy, a perfect precursor.

I was saddened to learn, after the show, they have no ALBUMS out that aren't on vinyl. I am not cool enough to own a turntable.

The Warhol Museum, by the way, is both an awesome place to see shows and visit in general. Very fascinating. I've been listening to a lot of Velvet Underground since and remembering my love of Keith Haring. The Books are playing there on the 16th. At the Vivians' show, my feet rested on the stage...surprisingly casual atmosphere. I don't think the drummer dug this. TOUGH LUCK BITCH I WAS TIRED.

By the way, I hate Doug the cartoon.



oh, this blog has been getting shout-outs in my classes. for the record, I would like to say for the most part we take a humorous approach to things here, so please don't like, don't take this as the USA Today or something.

"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

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

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
