Wild Child was on TV tonight.


So I just got done watching the ABC Family premiere of "Wild Child," starring Emma Roberts.

I watched this film to connect with my Wild Side, by being socially deviant once again and watching a movie that was not made for 22 year old males. I feel so rebellious.

If you remember back when I reviewed LymeLife, I made the Bold and Daring move to say that "Emma Roberts is a Prick."

And once again, Emma Roberts is playing a girl that is a notorious PRick, capital PR.

I had some review notes written, but I scratched them. The first 38 minutes of this movie are so incredibly bad that words do not describe it because there is nothing to say.
Emma Roberts plays a party girl from the USA, who gets shipped off to English boarding school, and we don't get to see anything interesting from the back story.

After an hour,I found I was kind of interested, but not really.

So,
this is a bad film that gets mildly better, but still bad in the end.

Basically:


If you need a Prick, get Emma Roberts.

If you need a teen with Problems, get Kristin Stewart.

If you need a hole who is a total F* up in life, get a Lohan (either or any, but that wouldn't really be acting.

QATFYG:
What did you do tonight? I hope it was better than watching this looooousy film.

#EmmaRobertsIsAPrick but I mean that in a positive way, her characters are often pricks, and overall her performance of them is well...pricky....so that makes it okay for some reason.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
