let's go to the movies

In the past few days, I have witnessed two trailers for upcoming films that have really managed to hold my attention. No, not "Old Dogs." Unfortunately.


"A Single Man" is Tom Ford's welcome to the big screen (celebrated figure in fashion, can't remember all the details, did the cover of Vanity Fair where Keira Knightley and ScarJo were naked. Just one look at that trailer and you can tell, right off the bat. The fastitiduous detail! Based on the novel by Christopher Isherwood, it tells the story of an English professor in California in the 1960s who recently lost his gay lover in an accident. Following his life in one day (as you see- November in 1962). Julianne Moore co-stars as his best friend (ultimate best friend!), Matthew Goode as his dead lover in flashbacks and the boy from About a Boy as a student that resembles his lover. That kid really grew up!



Do you think Erie is going to get this? No, no. I'm not sure if this is the edited or unedited trailer. The edited one shows quotes where in the unedited one two guys kiss. SHOCK AND HORROR.

The next trailer has like, my dreamcast of 3 years ago. Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire. Tobey Maguire supposedly dies in Afghanistan while his shitty brother has to step in and care for his family (Jake Gyllenhaal, who didn't imagine this before?) BUT THEN TOBEY'S NOT REALLY DEAD AND RETURNS WITH A BUNCH OF MENTAL PROBLEMS.



So I'll wait for these and in the meantime mourn the fact I missed my opportunity to see New Moon.

And of course NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE.

  1. Like I mentioned to you elsewhere, A Single Man looks horribly pretentious (like Tom Ford!) yet ridiculously good. Brothers just looks awful, like it wants to be a suspense film but it isn't because it's really a Lifetime film that somehow managed to get currently working actors on board. But w/e.

    p.s. Tom Ford = former creative designer for Gucci. why do I know this? DON'T ASK

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-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"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
