the invention of lying

Every time I see another preview for this film, I get more excited to see it in the theaters. where it opens today!

it has an all-star cast (well, what I consider to be, anyway) with a pretty novel concept: in a world, where no one has ever lied ... (cue "Star Wars" theme music)

here's a review of it from Indiana:

I mean, Tina Fey! Ricky Gervais! Rob Lowe! ... comedic genius?

well, do you want to see it at all?

you know, for never having seen it, this reminds me a lot of "I <3 Huckabees."


  1. it really does look great. however, im not excited for Rob Lowe. I'm not a rob lowe fan.

  2. you're a fan of everybody else under the sun!

  3. no, not everyone. remember i don't like john cusack and simon baker. however, i do love tina fey, and adore ricky gervais in a completely hetero way. but i am excited for this movie.

  4. Same here Nader - the movie looks great, but Rob Lowe... not so much.
    But----you don't like John Cusack??? :'(

  5. hey adam, don't :'( over john cusack. did u see serendipity? he made me cringe! that's just one example.
    Rob Lowe on the other hand...just irritates me. However, I did enjoy the movie "Outrage" where a bunch of teens make his life a living hell. I wonder why?

"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

"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.

"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:
