why i want to see 'the beaver' with jodie foster and mel gibson




Jodie Foster's film The Beaver, starring Mel Gibson in his first big role since 2002, about a depressive man with a legion of failures behind him who hooks onto this beaver puppet he finds in the trash, is getting rave reviews at SXSW. Rave! and he just got arrested, too!

Now this is a typical story of where you have to look beyond the artist and just at the art, which should speak for itself. Miss Foster is famous as a near-recluse, probable lesbian. Mel Gibson, eh. Mel Gibson's escapades have been tabloid fodder for years. He hates, um. Everyone. And likes to yell at his wife on the phone and threaten to cut off her head etc (is that Charlie Sheen? I am not in the mood to be excessively witty tonight, forgive me, I have been a vessel of seething self hate all week and it reached its boiling point today) etc etc. Well!

Even though I would probably be another likely target for Mr. Gibson's hatred, even though I don't agree with his lifestyle by a long shot (why would I? I'm not insane!), I want to see The Beaver. I want to support him. Why?

a.) I love the idea of giving people second chances. it's a big fault of mine. I give people too many chances. but isn't that the beautiful part of humanity? animals do wonderful things, but I think forgiveness and redemption are purely human qualities, and lovely ones at that.

b.) Jodie Foster is a pretty damn good director. from what I can deduce, anyway. idk- and Cherry Jones is in it and she's great. such an underrated actress (THE PRESIDENT IN 24)

c.) it looks like a genuinely good film.


so, granted it comes near me, I will give Mel some money. I really do hope things get better for him. if Jodie wants to believe, I can believe!

"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!

And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
