Someone Still Loves You, Boris Yeltsin!

This band was a band I originally started enjoying because of the name and the name alone. The music came second. But it's good music, nonetheless. I asked them a few questions recently, about the Russian politician they are named after, their upcoming new album AND the fact they have a song in what is bound to be a classic movie, Shark Night. Their new album, FOR YOUR INFORMATION, Tape Club, comes out October 18th. 



Do you think people really still love Boris Yeltsin? 
SSLYBY:  Not really. I'd like to meet one his grandchildren one day and ask them what he was like in real life. 


How's your tour been so far?
SSLYBY:  Our last tour was in June. We played at some weddings for our friends. We've been bumming around in Springfield since then. (internet liez) 

What's the most memorable concert-related experience you've ever had?
SSLYBY:  Our last show was pretty memorable because I completely forgot how to play the guitar. I seriously couldn't remember how to play a power chord. My friend Danny said it was the best show he's ever seen us play.

How often do you guys get to go back to Springfield? Also, have you ever heard of the Springfield Effect?
SSLYBY:  We're in Springfield most of the time because we average about 100 out of town shows a year. If the Springfield Effect involves UFO bases on Mars, yes, I've heard of it.

You have a song in "Shark Night!" Excited? Do you guys hold any cinematic aspirations? 
SSLYBY:  Yeah, I'm really excited about it because I have no idea what it's going to be like. I have a pretty good guess, but I'm prepared to feel weird about it. My dream job is to edit movie trailers, so I guess I have some aspirations.

Andddd you have an album set for October! Any details you can divulge?
SSLYBY:  27 songs on 26 tracks. There are 7 new songs no one has ever heard before, so it's almost like a brand new album. (almost)

What are your parting words? (say anything, really)
SSLYBY:  I don't know what you've been told...it ain't the butterfly, it's the tootsie roll. 

AMEN




question:  do you think Vlad Putin will get a band named after him?

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
