The Next Oscar Host

This is straight from Zap2it, but I was reading this earlier today. I don't know if they've picked an Oscar host yet, but who would you like to see up there? And no, you can't pick Hugh Jackman because he said he aint doing it. meh. Life goes on, but gosh darn that man can sing.

QATFYG: (these are the zap2it picks. If you're beau or gal isn't on the list feel free to write him/her in)
Who should host the 2010 Academy Awards?
Russell Brand
Steve Carell
George Clooney
Steven Colbert
Billy Crystal
Will Ferrell
Tina Fey
Jamie Foxx
Ricky Gervais
Whoopi Goldberg
Tom Hanks
Steve Martin
Amy Poehler ----My Vote
Will Smith
Oprah Winfrey

**I picked Amy Poehler because I think she has the most to gain, and she could do probably the most entertaining host job.

  1. I don't actually watch the Oscars, but frankly, I agree with you. Amy Poehler has the most potential of them all. I also wouldn't mind Steven Colbert and Tina Fey.

  2. right on Adam, I think Tina Fey could do a great job, but on the other side. I feel Amy P could make more of an impact with the performance. If that makes sense.

  3. Totally makes sense.

    Somewhat unrelated, but still kind of cool: my favorite English teacher in high school lived in New York back in the day. His roommate? Tina Fey.

  4. I would say Steve Carell. I think would be one the likely candidates. He has the ability to create humor, which is a key asset for an awards show host. In addition, he has a decent level of popularity. This would attract decent numbers in key demographics, which is important in choosing a host. He ultimately has the key characteristics that would make a decent host.

"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
