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 ain't the butterfly, it's the tootsie roll. 


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

"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
