matt made me listen to lush: a review

Matt has exceptionally good taste in music, so I should listen to him more, no? I just am lazy and unless I hear a band and they get me on that first listen- I'm screwed. if not, well, whatev. OMG LET'S PLAY UFFIE NONSTOP AND DECIPHER HER LYRICS. "damn good cheese." THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING HIDDEN IN THERE, SOME SUBTEXT.

so he's been on my case nonstop to listen to Lush. and I've listened to Lush in passing, but inactively. I haven't allowed myself to get into it. is it the same fear that keeps me subdued on dating websites? giving myself away to random strangers/bands and then realizing they have my heart, don't care and will never give it back? that is it. UFFIE, WHAT THE HELL.

IT'S JUST THE EMOTIONS, TAKING ME OVER....

all right, I listened to Lush. Matt was nice enough to pass me enough their body of work. yay! so I want to write this like a snob at a winetasting. and I hate wine. here we go:

at my first sip of Lush, I am reminded of shoegazing. like, gawking-at-your-Converses-with-your-mouth-open-like-Terri-Schiavo.

the instrumental parts are so beautiful. that's my favorite aspect of Lush- the guitars, the backgrounds. they're cloudy, to get vague on you. but very easy, very relaxing to listen to, for me at least. I mean it's not like Alice Cooper in his glory days or something. Matt often calls them the original Beach House, and I definitely hear that at times.

the thing I dislike? the vocals. oh my god. this is why I am not more of a shoegaze enthusiast. the vocals do nothing for me. it's like an erection going soft. sorry for all the phallic comparisons lately, but it's the truth. between the too-adorable British accents and the fact they're barely singing ... :/

I've given them a little bit of time to grow on me. I have to say, Lush are definitely worth your time, if you consider yourself a fan of like, My Bloody Valentine but have a hard time with MBV's nearsighted harshness.

Lush (now comes time for the belated introduction!) were a group from LDN in the late 1980 and early 1990s. which isn't hard to hear. at all. I feel like it's 1991. have I fallen into a hole in the space-time continuum? maybe...

do I like Lush? yes. more than Al likes Best Coast, at least. do I want to take them back to my house and perform oral sex on them? NO.

that's reserved for my Uff. holla girl!

"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

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!

Episode 2: Authority Always Wins Well here we are again, time to sink our twin hard-ons into the new episode! Before I get into the thick of things, again I must let you know HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS. And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
