wherein i assert myself over JEZEBEL

Okay, so fellow contributor Matthew showed me the latest issue of Interview Magazine yesterday. and at first I was floored by the gorgeous pictures of Marion. okay, I lie. I'm still floored by them. that women is flawless. let me have my moment, again.

...

ah! well on that note, I read a Jezebel article later that day that completely slammed the article on merit that Marion was a Tori Amos-esque fluffy bonehead and the piece was an illustration of one actress (Nicole Kidman, the obvious lesser of the two) "blowing smoke" up the ass of another.

I see where this writer is coming from, totally. you know how Hollywood is. it's a lot of artifice.

but at the same time, I think the last line of the article rendered the rest null. to say that Cotillard is just basically a good-intentioned bimbo ... that nothing she has to say is relevant because she's an attractive actress and really isn't that all she has going for her? is just stupid to me. I mean, granted, I read the article and wasn't amazed by anything Marion had to say. I was just like "oh here is another actress in Hollywood that is trying to do good things and seems all right but yeah whatever" and shrugged it off. like, she'd be cool to hang out with, you know.

and call me naive, but I thought the whole saving-the-environment pet project was cute. I know a lot of that is set up by celebrities' publicists, but there are probably worse things (coughLILOcoughhackdie).

Interview magazine usually has more heady material than this, I agree, but at the same time, I seriously feel like this Jezebel girl misguided her energy. something about her whole article just screamed BITTER to me. like, fault people for being good-looking, really? use that as your argument against them? that seems, to me, flawed logic. and something that's a lot more instinctual-based than anything else.

although I do sort of see that the writer is just trying to show the shallowness of the cult of celebrity, but again- that last part made her argument worthless to me.

I could say it was a case of the uglies, but I am not going to sink so low! after all, I do tend to shirk away from mirrors.

"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
