"Horrible Bosses" or CARA IF SHE WAS A DENTIST

I have had a few bosses in my time that I could not stand. Granted, I don't think I ever wanted to kill She-Thing. Trip her yes, but my boss was never one of the following:

a.) a sex-crazed deviant
b.) a coke-addicted tool
c.) a pure evil psychopath

do you think if I had a boss along these lines I would have had a similar reaction to the three bromantic protagonists of Horrible Bosses? Possibly. 

It's not as funny as Bridesmaids, which is the movie which all future 2011 comedies will be judged by from here on out. But it's a lot better than Bad Teacher and ends up leaving the audience with a fascinating, somewhat complex plot. 

Yet the big key for this movie to succeed is the interaction and dialogue, back-and-forth between the three protagonists, a group of friends (who all loathe their superiors)- Jason Sudekis, Jason Bateman (HOLLA USELESS CRITIC FAVORITE) and Charlie Day, who I have just been introduced to and think is wonderful. Divine, really. Especially when he accidentally ingests a large portion of cocaine, begins doing push-ups and has the best Ting Tings singalong in history of Ting Tings singalongs. You get the feeling these three guys are really great friends in real life, because SO MUCH of the movie is just them talking shit over but it works. It really works.

Shout-outs to Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston for their roles, too. J. Aniston is probably the bitchiest/sluttiest I have ever seen her at and I fully approve. Every time she got on screen I was like HELL YEAH and normally I can't stand her. She makes Charlie Day so uncomfortable as his horny dentist and even tries to get him to mount her on top of the unconscious body of his fiance. PERFECTION. Cara, dentistry? You feel me? Kevin Spacey plays a brilliant cold-hearted psycho with not an ounce of good in his black, black heart. Seriously. But when doesn't Kevin play a psycho?  Also his wife is super-hot and boning the whole neighborhood. It happens.

Colin Farrell is presently trying to venture into "comeback" territory. Is it working? Fright Night is going to suck balls, let's be honest with each other. Here he shows how he has fallen from action hero to playing a comedic scuzzbag. But he does so well. Do you think he's douchy in real life? Probably.

The writing is fairly strong and Jamie Foxx has a good turn as an ex-con (FOR WHAT I AM NOT TELLING YOU IT'S JUST THAT GOOD) named "Motherfucker Jones." Jason Sudekis is impossible for me to differentiate from that other guy in the Hangover/the Office. There are slow moments and sometimes it seems to be trying too hard but it's really an entertaining experience. And you get sucked into the story easily, or Jennifer Aniston's stained panties, yadda yadda yadda.

"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!

Episode 2: Authority Always Wins Well here we are again, time to sink our twin hard-ons into the new episode! 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.
