another (hot) mess of a post


Are you going to watch the new American Idol? Being frank with you I never do. I'll watch the outtakes on the news shows or what have you (Scooter Girl! remember her!!!!) but I think this time might be different because we have new judges including JENNIFER LOPEZ and STEVEN TYLER. I don't know how it will function without the antics of that crazy pilled-out bitch Paula Abdul but we will find out.

This summer is shaping up to be a good one for the Chautauqua Institution thus far. I haven't mentioned it before but homegrown talent Natalie Merchant (jealousyyyyyy) and banjo-plucking comedian extraordinaire Steve Martin (THAT one) will be doing shows for reasonable prices (like 39 dollars? I don't think that's too bad!) there. here are the deetz:

- Steve Martin: July 1 2011
AN EVENING OF BLUEGRASS AND BANJO
touring with the Steep Canyon Rangers

have you ever read one of his books? he's a damn fine writer. SOME PEOPLE HAVE ALL THE LUCK. he also hit on Tina Fey when she was a writer for SNL. SOME PEOPLE HAVE ALL THE LUCK. I'm gonna go pretend I'm Tina Fey and let him hit on me. then I'll write about it here.

- Natalie Merchant: July 8 2011
her new album was supposed to be very good. I refused to listen to it. SORRY NATALIE I LIKED YOU WITH 10000 MANIACS

oh, here's something weird: according to last.fm, Lykke Li and the remaining members of 10000 Maniacs are playing a show together. okay, ????

> - WHAT DOES THAT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH LYKKE LI? I DON'T GET IT. seriously that's like oh hey Robyn, do you want to do a show with Hootie and the Blowfish, we hear the Blowfish aren't that busy lately? I HOPE THAT'S SOMEONE'S IDEA OF A SICK JOKE.

new albums that are so fast coming out:

- THE SOUNDS- Something To Die For- March 29
track listing as follows
“It’s So Easy”

they are certainly not the best band out there, but they are fun. and attractive and Swedish. isn't that enough?

- THE DO (ep out now)

- THE BOXER REBELLION (not the Manchurian political movement, the band)

I like them anyway, but I always feel a need to be real with my readers. always.

"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
