Spotlight/Shoutout: Two Years of Wednesdays

Hello World.
It’s almost impossible to believe, but it’s been two long years to the date since Spotlight/Shoutout started. This weekly award has been one of my favorite parts of The UC, and looking back it really does feel like a journey, or even like climbing a ladder.

It really feels like only last week the column was just getting started in its early phases.
“Heyo, so something new is in the works here.”

This is a segment, which has seen so many memories.
“Does Sarah Hyland look like she could be Amanda Seyfried’s little sister?”

It’s held some of my favorite works on The UC.
“This bitch knows how to moisturize.”

It’s also distributed some of my worst.
“Terrence Howard earns this award even after doing "The Salon." In "The Salon," he was such a fu*king bitch!”

And it even holds some of my most bizarre
“In the vid, he is the bar-tending African American (in a hat). Yup :(“
(I have no idea why I wrote that.)

Week after week, I’ve had the pleasure of writing this segment, and like all good things it has to come to an end. So on the third Wednesday of September in 2011, I have the pleasure of retiring this column.

Next Wednesday, something brand new will come to The UC. A new column called “Dear Dearest” will be a regular Wednesday feature. If you are wondering if the point of this new column is where I simply write to actresses and (legal) celebs and ask them to go out with me and then sending it to their fanmail. The Answer is Yes!

I’m rather excited about that one. I hope Miley Cyrus is too. I don’t actually want to date her. I’m just a bastard.

What will happen next?

"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

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to , single women are presented with

"High Tide, Storm Rising" - Skinshape

A new Skinshape LP is on the way as of October 28th! "Nostalgia" promises to delve into the world of motives and motifs. Will Dorey (AKA Skinshape) has described this particular track "High Tide, Storm Rising" as "the main theme song of a movie." And if you have read any of my prior posts, you know I'm a sucker for anything cinematic.  Here's a full look at the Skinshape "Nostalgia" track listing: 01. Theme For Lazarus 02. Better Chances 03. Dreams of Panama 04. Moonlight Walk  05. Albion 06. High Tide, Storm Rising 07. Turn Away 08. Bohanon's Cornucopia 09. Bad Dreams 10. Fish & Chips 11. Dawn I would try to include something about live shows, but the soulful likes of Skinahape simply prefer to record and NOT perform live, which is an interesting choice in today's world.  Once again, "Nostalgia" is out everywhere as of Oct. 28th.
