the rundown, friday style


- So American Idol has done the unthinkable and replaced Paula Abdul. EJRELKAJRKELJRKEAJRKREKRE WHYYYYYYY! I still cannot believe this. It CANNOT be real. I refuse to accept this. bullshit! bullshit! anyway. Ellen of all people is stepping into her shoes. Her large, drinky-drink shoes. Ellen, BB, listen up. develop some kind of addiction and fast. otherwise this show will be less enjoyable than it already is.
- Nine Inch Nails played their last official FOR REALZ show last night somewhere in California. um, I think it was California. I remember when NIN came to Erie my senior year of high school- people are always shitting themselves over Trent Reznor being some kind of "local boy." bought my tickets at Giant Eagle and never used them. NOW THAT CHANCE IS GONE FOREVER, THANKS TRENT.
- that thing about Ellen has inspired me: who is YOUR favorite lesbian? I love Ellen, but I don't think she's my favorite. and it's certainly not RoRo or Tegan and Sara. hmmmm. food for thought.
- The new, first issuse of the Spectator has hit the stands! If you live around Edinboro pick up a copy and tell me all we did wrong! kidding, I'm pretty pleased with it. considering. now 26 more issues to go......woot. we do have an awesome staff though, and I have to say, some nerves aside, I still retain a high level of excitement. :D
check it out on the interwebs:

have a good weekend everybody! I'd Hit It will be later, within a day or so. also, new Sondre Lerche review, and probably a "you need to hear this" before I forget.

  1. Favorite lesbots: Tegan & Sara "This Business of Art" era. And Ellen Page, if she is, in fact, lesbionic.

    I secretly love NIN. Not so secret now though!

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

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"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
