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

"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
