Spotlight/ Shoutout: Eric Millegan


So in this day and age it is hard to find people that are rather exceptional. That is why Eric Millegan earns the s/s for this week.

You may have seen him on “Bones,” and you may have seen his traveling cabaret show.

But Eric Millegan does far more than act.

He has been an open homosexual, and not only that he has come out three times.

1. homosexuality
2. About his Age
3. For his mental illness

As for his age, Eric Millegan is 35, and he looks like he is 19ish. But he even stated he had to come out with his age and admit that he is older than he looks. Much more courageous, than that goomba mcgoomba, Jason Earles from Hannah Montana, who refuses to admit that he’s 33.

But now Eric Millegan is an open advocate for Mental Illness Awareness, Eric has bipolar disorder, but he does not let it get him down anymore. As an actor, he has made it onto many network television shows, but he has been battling mental illness the whole time.

Eric now has a series of youtube videos explaining what it’s like having bipolar disorder. I would recommend watching them. Whether you have bipolar disorder or not, they’re rather inspirational.

QATFYG: Does he look 35? And I apologize for tech difficulties earlier, such as losing my Jason Earles pic.

  1. Sorry to be annoying, but I think you made an error. I just want to make sure it is an error to understand your point. The sentence in question is, "But he even stated he had to come out with his age and admit that he is younger than he looks." I think you mean to day "that he is" older instead of younger "than he looks."

    He does look younger than mid 30s, but I think he doesn't look 19, possibly mid to late 20s. Also, he looks much older than he did in the past.

  2. He was pretty good on Bones, but I prefer John Francis Daily to him. (Sweets > Zach, obviously.)

    I will say-- 35?!?! Holy crap. The man looks like he's a college student.

  3. well blank,

    that was what i wanted to do! just to see if you were paying attention.

    And at least Eric is open about his age, whereas Jason Earles had to forge his resume saying he was 8 years younger than he really is. o and blank, do yo see where i made a mistake this time?

    I do miss Zack on bones tho, and it's not a recent pic. It's prolly 3 years old, but it's still from his early 30's.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"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
