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.

"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

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
