CHRISTINA RICCI APPRECIATION


So I was slightly drunk, with my best friend, at a haunted house a few weekends ago. You know, one of those fake ones they put together where you go to not be so much scared as harassed? Yes, the Conneaut Lake one in fact. something something levels of fear/hell something. I've never been to one before. They do a really nice job! It was fun. a lot of random people touching me and chainsaws breezing against my body. you know I loved that.

well, because of my intoxicated state, every time some person dressed up a ghoul or serial killer would jump out in front of me and be like BOOLA BOOLA BOOLA, I could think of one of two reactions:

a.) WHERE THE FUCK DID YOU PUT KE$HA
b.) CHRISTINA RICCI IS ON BROADWAY THIS WEEKEND! (I read this headline in the morning and for some reason, it just stayed with me).

Well I have done a lot of pondering on this issue, head-on-knuckles type. And I came to the conclusion: I LOVE CHRISTINA, I ALWAYS HAVE! especially this time of year- give my girl props for her roles as Wednesday Addams in the film revival of the series and her angsty turn in Casper, which is so still my favorite Halloween movie when I think about it. the end when they dance? oh my god oh my god I am still ten in places! swoon

She was such a pivotal child actress of the 90s. I mean, think about it! Mermaids, That Darn Cat. I feel like I grew up alongside of her, sorta.

Oh man, there used to be this show on MTV, I don't know if you remember it? anyway they would always pair these crazy fans up with the celebrities they were in love with. like I would get paired with Gwen, as an example (then there would be a restraining order issued). well they had this INSANE guy that was obsessed with Christina as Wednesday Addams, so MTV set them up and had them go to one of her movies together. Poor Christina! He was like ZOMGZOMGZOMGITSWEDNESDAY and dressed up just like her. and you could see her just staring at him, like :O I don't think she enjoyed it very much.

Since the 1990s, she's been able to transition very well to adult roles. Pumpkin, Monster, Penelope. nicely done, Christina! (coughcoughLilotakeanexamplefromthisgirl) and of course, BLACK SNAKE MOAN.

and now she's on Broadway with noted Useless Critic goddess Laura Linney, starring in Time Stands Still (she's getting awesome reviews!)
and a lot of actors (even if they are the shit in cinema) aspire to be on Broadway. or do live theater of some sort. I guess there is something to be said for the captive audience, an adrenaline rush film just does not offer.

so I'd like to salute Christina Ricci because I will always have a special place in my heart for her.



OMG THE MTV THING



anyway! she's also come out and said she's had a lot of confidence/body image problems recently. I'd like to dedicate this to her:

"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

"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
