Spotlight/Shoutout: Nick Benson

So this guy is Nick Benson, and he is the s/s champ for the win.
Nick was supposed to be the 3rd spotlight post back in 2009, but somehow it went overlooked.

So 83 weeks later, here is his time to shine.
He was an actor on “Summerland” using the name Nicholas J. Benson, but I really learned of him when my family and I were watching the show “Swingtown.” He played “Rick,” the young preteen boy with lots of emotional energy.
But really, he made the show for me. He was amazing with line delivery, and I still remember some of his oneliners about girls having crabs and doing shots of gin.

In the future, this guy is going to be in a film called “Best Player.” It stars two members of the iCarly cast: former Spotlight King, Jerry Trainor, and the now country-singer Jeanette McCurdy. Naturally, this is a Nickelodeon project.

I think I will hunt it down.

Who does the best oneliners?


  1. I like to think maybe Larry David?

    it's been a Curb Your Enthusiasm kind of day.

  2. Thanks for giving Nick a 'shout out' - he does a great job in Best Player. Granted I'm a bit biased as I am related to him, but I think his Sheldon character is one of the most lovable Nerd's -ever! Hope all the Nick fans out there will watch 'Best Player' on TV this weekend.

"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

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!

Before I get into the thick of things, again I must let you know HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS. And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
