The Kennedys, Part 2

JFK: (presenting idea to Congress) ...so that's why we need to go to THE MOON.

CONGRESS: *stares*

CONGRESSMAN: Um, okay.

SCENE 2

This scene would serve as nothing but a vehicle for whatever Katie Holmes/Jackie is wearing. I feel like we could call Marc Jacobs and ask him to design something special for this momentous occasion. She is sitting on her designer sofa (creamy white) reading Jack Keroauc's The Dharma Bums. "Girl from Ipanema" plays.

JACKIE : *flips page* hmmmmmm.

SCENE 3

This is the birthday scene. Observe:

MALE FRIEND WHO IS SEMI-DRUNK: Happy birthday Jackie boy! (slaps JFK on the shoulder)

JFK: Aw shucks.

MALE FRIEND: How does it feel to be president?

JFK: Well....

It appears he is about to prattle off into a full-fledged speech when Marilyn Monroe stops him.

MARILYN MONROE: Hello stranger. Can we go somewhere and be, alone? Here? Now? I'd like to be alone with you in some semblance of some respect. Big boy.

*seductively smokes cigarrette*

BOSTONIAN SKANK IN BACKGROUND: And I saidah to ah herh, you skankah. You sluttah, your muddah was an Athiest and your fathah was a manatee DON'T YOU DARE TALK TO ME LIKE DAT, YOU MISERABLE HOEBAG, I WILL TEARAH THE HAIRAH OUT OF YO GENTILE HEAD.

MARILYN: No. Who do you think I am, Zsa Zsa Gabor?

*she pulls him aside*

BOSTONIAN SKANK: I said YOU LEMON POT PEE BRAIN BITCH, YOU UNATTRACTIVE TROLL, I HOPE YOU GET SYPHILIS AND I HOPE IT'S HORRIBLE.

(in my mind this character is played by Lisa Kudrow)

JACKIE: *watches from the other side of the room, holding a martini*

JACKIE: *is bitter*


TO BE CONTINUED

p.s. I have this whole side of my family from Boston no one gives a shit about. like, my grandmother's sibling's kids all live in Boston and New York but like I said, no one gives a shit.

p.p.s. GO STEELERS, YOU BEAT THOSE UPTON SINCLAIR WANNABES. uh huh! you know what it is! - Wiz Khalifa

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

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"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
