Frabby


Ah. Okay. So apparently Saturday Night Live's Fred Armisen is now dating his fellow SNL co-star Abby Elliott. Abby is 23 and the daughter of SNL alum Chris Elliott. Fred is 43 and...is still technically married to Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss.

Wat.

Fred and Elisabeth met on the set of SNL when Moss' Mad Men co-star Jon Hamm first hosted in October of 2008. They got engaged two months later and married last October. News reports say Armisen and Moss first split up in May, although the news of them breaking out hit recently just as the news of him dating Elliott came about. I specifically remember watching pre-show of the Golden Globes back in January and a host asking Elisabeth Moss why she became engaged and married so soon after meeting Fred, and her response, cheeks blushing, smile a-glow, was "Sometimes, you just know, you know?"

I wonder what she knew?

Because here's something my lovely friend Hannah and I knew back in June. We knew of Fred and Abby before anyone else. Yes, that's right, sometimes my living in Los Angeles has its perks. Sometimes it's Spiderman carrying his luggage across Hollywood Blvd at 2am, and sometimes its catching Fred Armisen and Abby Elliott seeing a comedy show at Upright Citizens Brigade on a brisk June night.

Now, it's not like we automatically knew they were together, since there were no signs of affection at all, because it simply looked like they were just two platonic pals enjoying (or not) a night of comedy. Here's what we did see:

  • Fred walking alone and randomly walking past us while in line, looking somewhat confused
  • Me silently freaking out
  • Us noticing Abby Elliott and Matt Walsh talking in line a few people ahead of us
  • Abby wearing something similar to this top:
  • Abby and Fred sitting within viewing distance from us
  • Fred staring at my "I (heart) NY" shirt (I had just come back from New York City the night before; I almost wore the SNL shirt I just bought; SNL is my favorite show of all time)
  • Abby and Fred, along with most of the crowd, not really laughing at anything (the only time a UCB show had not been funny to me)
  • Me passing by Abby waiting for Fred to get out of his seat after the show
  • Abby smiling for no reason
  • 40-year-old woman sitting next to Fred looking mean as hell
Yeah, that's pretty much it. So Hannah and I were in the know before all y'all, okay? Even though we didn't suspect anything at the time. Although it was weird Elisabeth Moss wasn't there. And we know she must have been in LA at the time since Mad Men films in LA, coincidentally in the same studio where Hannah worked at over the summer.

~*Oooh*~

First I see Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood back together before anyone else knew (they came into my old job once and Manson bought 2 hot dogs from me and came back for more), and now a couple who most likely was a couple at the time even though no one else knew. Who's next? Edward Norton and Salma Hayek? Oprah and Gayle? Nick and Miley????

"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

RIP Andy Warpigs

If you're even vaguely familiar with the Phoenix music scene to any extent, you probably knew Andy Warpigs. I saw them a few times at Yucca/Time Out Lounge when I was frequenting both spots a few years ago. Andy Warpigs was one of the most ubiquitous names you could come across, and with good reason - they were an incredibly prolific and talented artist, basically a Phoenix legend.  Unfortunately, over the weekend Andy Warpigs passed away - an extremely tragic loss. If you can possibly donate to the GoFundMe to help Andy's mom with funeral expenses , please do so.  Take care, Britt
