notes from the emmys

I like to think of myself as a war correspondent on the frontlines in these situations:

so here they are, the unabridged stream-of-consciousness


- NEIL PATRICK HARRIS - song and dance man
- montages - sitcoms from "30 Rock" to "Family Guy" to "Desperate Housewives"
- sweeping changes
- Jon Hamm & Tina Fey
"good evening and thank you for looking at us"- Hamm
Mad Men's Don Draper
30 Rock
- supporting actress in a comedy
Pushing Daisies- short-lived sweetness
Jane Krakowski, the crazy self-obsessed shitshow
SNL gets propppppps
celebrating their quirkiness
Ugly Betty's
Vanessa Williams looking characteristically bitchy
KRISTIN CHENOWITH- bio

as multi-talented as the host
teary-eyed and squeaky
BREAKTHROUGH PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR (some random Englishwoman?)
decided by voters
scenes from Gossip Girl, American Idol and True Blood
viewers were invited to keep voting through the performance
an interesting new take
61st primetime Emmy awards
OUTSTANDING WRITING - 30 ROCK
a parade of writers
FLIGHT OF THE CONCORDS
so it was a dual battle
MATT HUBBARD - 30 ROCK: REUNION
the familiar theme music bolted
when to Harvard with a history/lit major
he came swaggering down the aisle
overlooking the fact nobody knew who he was
lots of thankssssssssssssss
wife, family, friends
it was the mantra of the evening
running mascara
looking pretty dapper in a James Bond way (Neil Patrick Harris)
why are YOU TV’s fan?
12???????
Barbie Ross - who seemed awkward and uncomfortable with the spotlight and witticisms dripping
pouring like the wine behind the scenes
from Patrick Harris’ mouth
"the only person funnier than the next presenter is the woman presenting with her"
Amy Poehler and Julia Lewis Dreyfuss

last official year of network broadcast television (LOL)
it’s expensive, but it’s worth- JLD
best supporting actor?
the nerdy costar of TWO AND A HALF MEN
Jon Crier

"true measure of a person’s worth as a human being"

I don’t think so

besides
we’ve been to a lot of these, and they usually suck, but this one’s okay
besides everyone having a huge boner for him
"I feel like I’ve been watching youtube all night," said passerby.
TRUE BLOOD TRUE BLOOD
and for some Sarah McLachlan was there, singing one of her hits
seriously, how much can you beat a ead horse
but then we realized it was simply because people had died this year
because people die every year
but it was good being it highlighted a lot of less-er-knowns as well as people we all knew and loved
like Karl Newton
Henry Gibson
sarah mclachlan made all our hearts weaken
and her age is making her a fine wine
we drank

"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.

"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

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
