The Apple Jelly Monologues



All the leaves in my desolate neck of the woods have fallen, and no that’s not some bastardized metaphor. In all seriousness, it’s actually cold as a witch’s tit, and the orange and red are scattered on the ground and turning brown, and there is nothing left but a reminder that winter is going to painstakingly annoy some of us for a long six months. I better stock up on hot chocolate and find out if the Russian girl next door speaks English.

Fall is slipping away faster than we know, and already, the plastic Christmas trees are for sale in my Wal-Mart. I guess, they don’t really have to put on a big display for Thanksgiving. Although, the attractive coffee girl at my nearest coffeehouse (who for some reason ignores me over all other people on Earth) was wearing a pair of sweatpants the other day, which red in big red letters GOBBLERS. Heh, what a slut? However, it at least that moment provided some acid for the imagination…No offense to her, if she actually is a slut.

Last night, I happened to catch the premiere of a new show on the History Channel called “Harvest.” I was expecting to catch a look into the makings of an American tradition, and the joyous celebrations that one encounters during the fall season, such as the growth and sale of Pumpkins, or the makings of Apple Cider. However, this show was just another look at the dangers of an American profession at a new angle. It is really baffling to think that back in the days of 2006, when shows like “Deadliest Catch” were rather unique where they show the dangerous yet adventurous lives of American individuals. However, since that time, we’ve had shows about Loggers, Ice Road Truckers, Gater Hunters, and now people who operate combines. I thought the show titled “Harvest” would have had a lot more potential, but I might watch one or two more episodes just for fall spirit.

What do you think of when you hear the word Gobble?

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
