The King Has Left The Building

The time has come.

After 13 seasons on the air “King of the Hill” closed tonight at 9 PM.

This is a show that I’ve been watching since Elementary school, and I will miss it. It’s had some hilarious seasons, and it’s also had rather dull ones. But overall it was watched frequently in my house.

I am amazed that it lasted as long as it did considering it never seemed to earn a great reception among the masses. I even once referred to it as “The show nobody ever talks about.” But it’s had its moments.

The finale was divided into two episodes, which were not related, and in all honesty they were not the show’s best work. It was not until the last three minutes that I really found the strong effect of what a series finale is supposed to have.

So Au Revoir “King of the Hill.”

Also, “The Simpsons” is still going strongly on Fox for at least this season and the next. I have predicted that the final episode of “The Simpsons” (Whenever it will be) will break the record for most watched program in history, which is currently held by the final episode of M*A*S*H.

QATFYG: Any thoughts on the prediction? Did you watch the series finale of KotH? And are you a fan of Fox animation domination?

"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

"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.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
