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

"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

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
