Rick Astley Analysis

Look around you!
Is there a bigger fan
of Rick Astley
than me in your room right now?
No, there is not.
That would be impossible.
Here is some bizarre evidence.

Absurd Findings

Rick Astley is most well-known of course for his hit song “Never Gonna Give You Up” and RickRollin’ People, and drinking like Monstro the Whale.

But what about his other songs?
He must have some.

Together Forever

This song has an okay melody, and I strongly enforce the meaning of “okay” not to misinterpret it as good. The chorus has an impact that could be stronger, but it seems like a song that you would become addicted to after 1,000 plays. Although, it has moments that sound like commercial jingles.


Sleeping


To be honest this song had a surprising intro. It almost reminded me of that song from “Dirty Vegas.” The lyrics are not anything worth mentioning, so I will not say anything more. I wouldn’t immediately turn it off, but it doesn’t sell me enough on the powerful qualities of Rick Astley’s voice.


Other than “Never Gonna’ Give You Up” I just have so many mixed feelings when Rick Astley begins songs. This song almost has “date-rape” lyrics though, and if anyone thinks I’m not creepy enough, I’m going to sing this song to them outside their window with a crate-paper heart. In other words, it is too uncomfortable for its own good.

Well, I guess I didn’t get as far as I wanted in this analytical journey. I am guessing though, that no one is crushed.

QATFYG:
If you were a one hit wonder, what would your song be titled?
Mine would be “Smooth and Rich”
I’m not Rico Suave Bitch
I’m the real Smooth and Rich

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

"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

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
