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!!

  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.

"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:
