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

"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:
