Spotlight/ Shoutout: Saorise Ronan


Hello Wed.

So as we all know, "New Moon" has been destroying the box office; however, this post has nothing to do with "Twilight Saga." During the previews, the trailer for the "The Lovely Bones" played, and it really caught my eye.

So this week's wonderawesomely awesome s/s goes to Saorise Ronan, the principle star of the flick. I saw the first few moments of the preview, and it looked like "OMG another girly movie about dullness and boredom."

But No, it got way better. Like way way better. I'm now super excited for the movie. It looks suspenseful and serious and extreme and a whole bunch of other things that kick ass. (Truth.) It might be based on a girly looking novel, but there is more to this than meets the eye (or other body parts: hah, bad joke.)

You may remember Saorise from the award winning picture "Atonement," where she played some little girl. No, jk. "Atonement" was actually really good. And I liked the ending. I don't care what anyone says.

QATFYG: Will you go see "The Lovely Bones?" Have you seen "New Moon" yet? (You should see New Moon just to see what the big deal is. It has its ups and downs. Meh, go see it just to be cool.)

  1. Actually, by not going to see New Moon you would still be cool... just to a different group of people.

    A group of discriminating, intelligent, utterly attractive people. (cough) like me (cough)

  2. duuuuude. kemp and I have been freaking out over the lovely bones since we saw the trailer back in september or october. they pushed the release date back to january and I want to personally throttle peter jackson.

    book was so good. dayyum. the end is a total piece de resistance.

    Saorise (I read somewhere it's pronounced "SHUR-sa") is going places. she was pitch-perfect in atonement. DAMMIT, why wasn't atonement nominated for more academy awards? I hope this movie lives up to my wildest fantasies. Because this is one of the few (very, very few) movies I am excited to see.

"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:
