Spotlight/Shoutout: Bridgit Mendler


Hello Wednesday,

I love the Disney Channel, and last Friday I caught the premiere of the show "Good Luck Charlie."

And the magic s/s of awesome sauce goes to the lead actress Bridgit Mendler.

She stars as the somewhat socially awkward teen, who is making a video diary for her baby sister, so she can learn from their mistakes in the future.

The show is not a super blend of strong comic elements, but it shows potential for a strong family show. It's going to be something that the sentimental comedy genre needs.

Bridgit has worked all over the place on the Disney channel, starring on "Wizards of Waverly Place," and "Jonas."

Also, she appeared in the KCA winning film "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel."

"Good Luck Charlie" airs at Sunday nights at 8:30 on Disney.

QATFYG: Are you a fan of sentimental comedies?

  1. So... I decided to watch "Good Luck Charlie." It was enjoyable. It did seem quite different from the D-channel's normal shows. Generally, the shows on that channel are completely child centered, but here there was mixing with the parents. The show gave me the feeling that it was a bit like Lizzy McGuire, if Lizzy McGuire were a live action comedy and slightly lower quality. I might continue watching the show.

    The only real down side I saw to the show was the sets were really fake. It was hard to watch, because they did not in the least bit seem real, and they were obviously trying to imitate real sets.

  2. Anon,
    i was not paying close enough attention to the sets on GLC, but the Disney world is notorious for having sets that are underfunded and they are obviously staged and fake, which damages the illusion.

    I guess one of the best is Sonny with a Chance, because the show is set on TV sets. But again, I have not payed the best attention.

"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

"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
