Spotlight/Shoutout: Matt Long

So if you have been near an ABC station over the past few days, you must have noticed the hundreds of previews for the show, "The Deep End," about some top grad lawyers, who are just starting out in the world.

One of the principle roles is played by Matt Long, the star of other projects such as "Jack and Bobby," and the 2009 film "Homecoming."

He kind of annoyed me on "J and B," but he didn't exactly do a bad job. It was just annoying.

I cannot wait to see "Homecoming," where he plays the lover of both Mischa Barton and Jessica Stroup. I adore Jessica Stroup because of her screen presence and nonchalence. Mischa Barton is not so adorable anymore, but all the OC memories would flood back.

So "The Deep End" looks decent, and it is definitely worth checking out. I just hope that it can compete with the other giants of the Thursday 8Pm spot. "The Deep End" airs this week, Thurs 8/7 Central on ABC.

Good Luck Matt Long and crew.

QATFYG: Do you like Law shows? Would you be friends with Jessica Stroup? And will The Deep End succeed?

"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

"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.

"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:
