Spotlight/Shoutout: Christina Robinson



Hello People of Planet Earth,

It is Wednesday, and that means that Algerie Nader gets to show off some jazz for the world of acting.

As I love to mention, and I even love to brag, watching Michael C. Hall and “Dexter” is one of my favorite springtime traditions. I have just spent hours this year on Fast Pass Tv and Megavideo finishing up the fifth season, and it leads me to one conclusion.

Christina Robinson is becoming my second favorite character by playing Astor Bennett.



Why?
Well, she does play a 12 year old girl, and as some of you know I am a 13 year old girl at heart. Look at some of my previous posts.

But really, her performance this season has taken a row of downturned negative moments, where her character is finally experiencing all those pest-like moments known as teen angst.

In other words, she is bitter and miserable, and she does it well. Of course, there is some kind of anti-crestfallen uprising of emotional connection at the end of the season between her and Michael C. Hall.

My only fear is in four years, she might look exactly like Emma Roberts.

QATFYG: Who was the best at teen angst?
Was it Claire Danes?

  1. I was going to say Claire Danes too. What was that show she was on? My roommates and I used to watch so many episodes of it and I would go around afterward feeling all depressed.

  2. Claire Danes is like the ideal woman. smart, beautiful, somewhat Yale-educated but not overly so.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"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

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
