a review of a movie i have not seen.




I remember when I worked for the Spectator and Alice and I got a review from Al based off the trailer for that movie Love Happens. Alice, if you ever read this, you might remember. it caused some confusion. how can he review a movie if he hasn't seen the damn thing? Al, I still love you bb. this conversation just happened.

I am about to do the same thing. see here:

HEY YALL I'M GWYNETH PALTROW
I'm playing this washed-up country singer
with addictionz
like this hasn't happened before! see: WALK THE LINE

I SING MY OWN SONGS; THAT'S WHY YOU SHOULD SEE THIS MOVIE. isn't that a feat? like, has anyone did that before? God, Bette Midler. look away! look away!

Gwyneth Paltrow isn't by any means a bad actress. she really isn't. as a person, though, she happens to be an idiot. do I know her personally? yes, yes I do. she calls me up and she's like "Brittany should I get my colon cleaned?" as to which I am all like "bitch yeah go for it it's your digestive system!"

but Oscar buzz? all right, I will say this has ...................X..... on chances. yes I could see it, but if she wasn't nominated for playing Sylvia Plath, then I doubt she's going to be nominated for playing some second-rate Shania Twain/Britney Spears hybrid. by the way- Shania Twain has never had any problems except her cheaty ex-husband. lucky bitch. congratulations on the second marriage!

anyway, I think we all know that the real point of this movie is to show that fame is bad and strong women are never happy women and that Gwyneth can sometimes sing. ("I love it when we're cruising together!" okay, remember that song with Huey Lewis? they used to play it on my high school bus all the time? my dad sat next to Huey Lewis on a plane. HE IS SMALL.) I think Tim McGraw's performance will be commendable but Gwyneth is NO Sandra
(privatelydatingRyanReynoldsyougogirl) and this is no Blind Side. or Erin Brockovich. Or Eat Pray Love. Or Rudy. Or Coal Miner's Daughter.

the ending will be happy and involve a song of some kind. your life will be better if you bypass this in theaters and see Tron instead. I am telling you.



right, right.

"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

"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

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
