So one of those studies where they analyze the most exuberant countries in the world was just undertaken again. I was not surprised by the results, although I would have liked to see Sweden on the list.

why: because it is nicknamed "the World's Youngest Country"
it is pretty
it is right next to Australia
there are a lot of slutty ladies there.

why: because all those spawn of British rejects are really quite pleased with themselves!
it is kind of warm
nobody lives in the middle!
it IS Australia
"I'm moving to Australia!"- Alexander
they have great electronic music (i.e. Cut Copy and the Presets)
they are attractive and also tan.

why: because Finland is awesome?
because they are near Sweden.
I love you Finland, you are our 4th or 5th largest group of readers.
they have Moomin
their government doesn't suck
they make good design
IDK what else to say
except that a group of Finns told me I looked like that bitch from Gilmore Girls. thanks!


because it too is close to Sweden!
all the Danes I've met have been really happy, which I think is sweet.
it's easy to start a business in Denmark!
they ride bikes everywhere
and you know, speak English.
I think they owned Greenland at one point. AWESOME.

I kind of wish I owned Greenland....>_>.....<_<
who owns Greenland now?




countries that did not make the list
North Korea

why the United States did not make the list
we have
the tea party and Juggalos.

things that are coming up for the Useless Critic:

some kind of Oscar pool
another Ursula review!
two interview-things
concert listings
a review of the new Cut Copy album
a review of that new Natalie Portman/Ashton Kutcher film which I may or may not be seeing.

- b-r-i-t-t


  1. New Zealand also wins because they have Flight of the Conchords!

"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
