Spotlight/Shoutout: Eric Bogosian



I bring up this name a lot because he intrigued me in ways that I hadn’t really experienced before.
Eric B is known around the film and television world for random appearances in movies like “Blade: Trinity,” and being a principle character in “TalkRadio” and “Law and Order: CI,” but from this moment he will be remembered as one of the champions of the S/S.

Eric is of Armenian descent (important?), and in world of theatre he is famous for performing ONE MAN SHOWS!
One man, one stage, one univesrse. Like Nas said, all you need is one Mic.
Eric has done some famous works such as “Notes from Underground.” Also, he has performed big hits such as “Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll.”

The first one I saw him perform in was “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee.” It was well done and funny, but I did not like some of the anti-deistic remarks he made. I don’t think I would watch that one again, but I will keep an open mind with his other works. He also did a good piece called “Molecules,” which was amazing.
Eric is also a playwright who has had numerous things put into production; every time I’m in borders I look at his copy of “Suburbia.” I never buy it, but I flip through it.

I love Alternative Theatre. But when I tell people about one-man-shows they tell me they're boring, even if they’ve never seen one or even a segment of one. Now, I understand why they conceive this idea because it's only one actor on stage for an hour, but you can’t knock something until you’ve tried it. In one man shows people frequently play more than one character, quickly changing personalities. Keep a look out for Eric’s one man performances, good stuff. They sometimes float around on IFC.

QATFYG: Are you an Alternative Theatre fan…or Silver Screen Scream Queen (That almost makes sense)?

"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
