Beyond Hyperborea



"What is left in a universe without Sheen?"

The post-Sheen era of The 2.5 begins with a funeral bereft of expression of grief. In a show like this, it's expected. Unfortunately, the multitude of jokes about sexually transmitted diseases and hating Charlie flop like Leno talking Lewinski in 2011. It is disappointing and seems slapped together, without the writers' usual cleverness, blunt, with no phrases humorously flipped.

After this scene, I committed suicide, so I am unable to comment further from personal experience. However, at my funeral, I overheard some coffin talk that detailed the rest. I should warn you, should this be accurate, it might spoil the show, which already aired this week and may not air again in the forseeable future:

The funniest scene in the entire show is Jon Cryer being startled and throwing the contents of an urn all over the floor. Yes, this is the best scene in the most-watched episode of the series, ever.

Ashton Kutcher is competent but really not given any funny material that I can recall. He routinely refers to having a lot of money and a large penis, and is inexplicably nude throughout most of the episode, much to the delight of the other characters.

Staple characters, such as the mom, the kid, the maid, the ex-wife, the crazy girl and the guy from the Drew Carey show fall flat and are given no good lines.

Oh, and they leave the door open to bring Sheen back.

Tune in later for my treatise on how Johnny Galecki deserves the Emmy over Jim Parsons.

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

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

"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
