Mini-Mix: Music from the Cote D'Ivoire


Nope, not Ireland. It's the Ivory Coast.

QATFYG:
Can you believe there has been political unrest in the Ivory Coast for years, and it is only now that I dedicate a mini mix to them?

Things may be rough in the Cote D’Ivoire, but this gave me the chance to learn what this country has on it’s gigantic place mat........ because if the Cote D’Ivoire was a place mat using the actual square kilometers of the Cote D’Ivoire, it would be very large.

Even if you only took the Coast of the Ivory Coast and turned it into a place mat, it would be very large.


This is a piece of Christian music from the Cote D’Ivoire, and although, I knew so little of the Ivorian styles, this was nothing like how I expected it. It also almost a touch of a real occidental sound, but there is a unique quality that is just hard to place.




I wish I liked this video more,
But it gets rather flamboyant and not in an arousing way at all. There are too many shots in the video of men wearing Golden-Lettered T-Shirts that read SEX!
Dot dot dot, not to mention all the almost bootylicious gyrations. If you want to have gyrations, gyrate like Alicia Sacramone on floor routine.



Lastly, this is a live performance of some Ivorian styles abroad. It is a long bow-string instrument called the Dodo or Mougongo in the nation of Gabon. I was very excited to watch this video because it was something like I had never heard before. The music begins a little too slowly for me, but once the player gets into it, the exotic appeal is rather amazing.
As for the name, the Dodo, I am just quoting the guy on Youtube. Don’t shoot me if that is not true, and even if you think about shooting me, it’s still a sin!

Look! It's a magic Ivory Coast Ball!

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-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th
