Beyonce, meh!

Okay, I know I’m digging up old dirt, but for the first time today I watched the video for Beyonce’s single “Single Ladies.” I don't listen to her stuff normally, so I haven't seen the video until today.

And honestly, what is the big deal about it? I mean it’s a very mediocre video. There are some cool light and color changes, but all the choreography in it is just not very good. I felt a lot of it didn't fit the song well at all.

I love minimalism, but this is a different story.

QATFYG: What is the big deal about Beyonce and her video?

  1. I watched the video for the first time just last week... and I felt the same way. Not that great. And the song is just... eh. As far as I can tell, the only reason it won any awards is because it lacks the "bling" that is typically featured in so many videos in that genre...

  2. IS THIS A JOKE? The song is absurdly catchy, dances are sexy and mega (stolen or not.)

    I just... I just don't know what else to day.

  3. Jason:
    I have to disagree. I don't find the dances very sexy. overall i didn't like most of the dance moves. u kno there are some sexy people in the vid of course.

    But it's weird saying this as a straight man, but Beyonce has the worst taste when it comes to shoes. Anybody else see the vid for crazy in love? mmmmmmmmhmmmmmmmmmmm

  4. Not to beat a dead horse, but I think Kanye said it best when he belligerently shouted: "BEYONCE HAS MADE ONE OF THE GREATEST VIDEOS OF ALL TIME... OF ALL TIME!"

  5. that's what got me to watch the video. thanks kanye, you silly prick.
    i finally got around to it yesterday, and i wanted to see what the big deal was....and i can't see it. all i liked was how they used simple black and white colors effectively. the rest of it was just mildly artistic. NOT TO MENTION THE SHOES!!

"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

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
