summer 2010 is sort of, kind of here

HERE IS MY MIX FOR IT...I got lazy this year. I didn't upload shit. but if you want a song, leave me a holla. I will give you the hook-up.

someone described this as if Crystal Castles and Animal Collective had a child. that's about right!

"Go It Alone"- Beck
stealing this from Rebecca- it's just a great, chill track. and it's Beck! you can't go wrong!

"I Saw Her Standing There"- The Beatles
is it weird that it's taken me so long to develop a proper appreciation for this band? nonetheless, I'm a bigger fan of their earlier stuff. I blame Ursula.

"My Hands Are Shaking"- Sondre Lerche
just adorable. period.

(this video is so lame btw)

"Don't Go"- Nouvelle Vague
pining. they make me want to live in the Mediterranean. somehow, NV always makes it onto my mixes. it's a sign of my devotion....

oh my god. yes. look at the title. look. there you go.

"Tangerine Speedo"- Caviar
ahhh! a classic!

"Walk in the Park"- Beach House
more of a mood for a sunset or going to sleep after a long day spent, um, shoeshopping.

"Merrymaking at My Place"- Calvin Harris
this guy is amazing. I have rambled about him before. so cool!

"Candyland"- Gwen Stefani
I didn't listen to this song for two years. WHY! when she screams "this shit is fucking bananas!" I laugh because she sounds like she's going into space. ....

"The Bleeding Heart Show"- the New Pornographers
Twin Cinema has fast become one of my favorite albums ever. I like music that makes me feel alive- they make me want to run through the streets and be a kid again and embrace everyone and everything.

"To Kingdom Come"- Passion Pit
I guess, if you did drugs...

"Walcott"- Vampire Weekend
Vampire Weekend is a very summer-apt band. seriously. this tops it. why are your lyrics so vile, VW?

"Holdin' on Together"- Phoenix
such a hot band. if you have someone to make out with: this song. better yet: don't. I'm bitter. sry.

"Boy Likiloi"- Jonsi
Jonsi (Sigur Ros!!!!), his solo project is just amazing. check it out if you haven't heard it yet- I was walking to this song earlier and just, my goodness. it filled my veins!!!!

"Good Intentions Paving Company"- Joanna Newsom
Have One On Me was a great way to welcome spring, but the appeal of this song hasn't wore off for me yet. oh Joanna.

"Voyage"- Charlotte Gainsbourg

"Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)"- Florence + the Machine
this is a gift! IT COMES WITH A PRICE!

"In the Sun"- She & Him
someday I want to reenact this video.

"Smoke It"- The Dandy Warhols
this comes off an awful album, but this song is awesome.

"Party at a Rich Dude's House"- Ke$ha
again: the lyrics are truly what make this. so gifted. she's like Bob Dylan.

"The Twist"- Metric
any Metric song, really, would work. but this song. their first album is arguably their best.

"Let's Fall Back In Love"- Slow Club

I think I covered all the bases. like Cy Young. who was a pitcher. enjoy!

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-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"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
