The Young Victoria (and other gossip tacked along on the end)

So I just watched "The Young Victoria," with Emily Blunt, and it was quite kickass. Currently available on DVD, and it is worth the time.

If you didn't notice from the spotlight/shoutout of Matthew MacFayden, I like period dramas, especially ones that captivate the heart of the era and close with a happy ending.

This film did all of those things. Emily Blunt is crazy good in this role. She is quite fun to watch. I will be catching more of her movies as time goes by.

To sum up this film in two words: Well Done!

Other Unrelated Gossip:

Bernie Madoff is a jerk, and he is living the sweet life in jail. Crafty Bastard.

and Obama is still ticked at the Oil Spill recovery crew. If you are an international reader (USA had an oil spill!!)

What is your favorite period piece film?



    Brittany, Bryce burned TYV onto a dvd - if you want to borrow it (it might not play on a dvd player, but it will prob work on a computer) IT'S ALL YOURS; I WANT TO SPREAD THE GOOD WORD OF EMILY BLUNT.

    FUCKKCKKKKCKK that movie was amazing.

    I mean, christ, they even got the bit about her sounding German right.

    this is belated, but what does QATFYG mean?

    and my answer: sense and sensibility.

    runners up:

    Marie Antoinette
    The Duchess

    questions and thoughts for you guys

    PS C raw: I have not seen all of quills,
    that is on my to do / to watch list.

    As for other period p's.
    I know I just mentioned it, but I loved Gemma Arterton in Tess of the D'Urbervilles good stuff. And of course the classic "Great Expectations"

"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.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
