Spotlight/Shoutout: John Krasinski


So this is a face that many will recognize as that guy from “The Office”, or that guy from “Away We Go,” and apparently he is also in “It’s Complicated,” not that I want to see that.

But none of that is important today, and John Krasinski is earning the first s/s of the New Year for his work on “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men.” This movie will be available on DVD in February, and I am so excited to see it. Krasisnski directed, starred, and adapted the screenplay for this film.

It’s based on the writings of the late “David Foster Wallace,” who had a lot of stuff going on in his mind. Big surprise.

The movie will tell the tale of a grad student who copes with a break-up by interviewing other people………….such as British sex symbol, Dominic Cooper. (Wink)
And “Law and Order: SVU’s” Caucasian badass, Christopher Meloni.

(Btw Meloni is a Sardinian name.)

The reviews for John Krasinski’s film have not been super positive, but I will go into it with an open mind. He has a great cast, including Timothy Hutton, who always keeps popping up in things I like.

John Krasinski, I can’t wait.

QATFYG: Do you like JK? Would you sleep with Dominic Cooper (The fiancé from Mama Mia)?, and have you seen “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men” already, or will you see it on DVD?

  1. John Krasinski is an awesome actor. He has done excellent work in many things including away we go and it's complicated (you should give it a chance it was a funny film, specifically the second half). I think Brief Interviews with Hideous Men will be ok. I think it will show excellent effort and be a decent film, but I don't think it will be the number one on my list. However, I still want to see it.

"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:
