Spotlight/ Shoutout: Matthew Morrison


Hello Wednesday, this week’s spotlight/ shoutout goes to Matthew Morrison, a Broadway performer, who has made his name known in the world of television as well. On the smokin’ stage he’s done musicals such as “Footloose” (His big break.), “South Pacific,” and even “Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

But the reason Matthew Morrison earns this week’s golden s/s is because of his new work on the show “Glee.” This show looks like it’s going to be a hit. It has already generated an enormous fan base, and the season has just started. I don’t know if it will make as far as something like the original “90210,” with ten seasons (I didn’t watch any of them), but I hope “Glee” stays around for awhile.

Seriously, the show is great. It’s almost like a way to reinvent the musical by having all their cool performance numbers and interesting storylines. Also, Mattie Morrison’s character, is married to Jesalyn Gilsig from “Boston Public” and “Nip/Tuck.”

Awesome!!

QATFYG: Do you watch Glee? Are you a musical fan? And how long will Glee last?

  2. I've wondered, where has he been in the TV world? He just has the look and the personality that a lot of tv shows try to create for a "teacher" role.

    I'm thinking Glee might last at least 4 seasons...because it's set in a high school. of course shows always find ways to pull things out longer...................i.e.....save by the bell: college years.

  3. I haven't gotten around to watching Glee--it looks good, but I'm not much of a "watch TV on TV" person. Maybe when it comes out on DVD...

  4. Glee will last a while. It has a decent concept; however, it just another attempt at following the musical fad. The show will only last a couple of seasons. It will end just like this crazy hysteria for musicals set in high school.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

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-Lawso

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
