Satellite Stories! FINLAND!

 I sent Satellite Stories an interview request last March. that's a lifetime ago! but according to some logic, March and October are KIND OF the same.

so then I was drinking and thinking to myself, when I saw them on my Facebook newsfeed, that I should be like HEY YOU NEVER RESPONDED and see what happened! other bands that have ignored such requests:

- Lykke Li (not a band)
- Mila Kunis (not a band)
- Passion Pit (a band) 

well, they were nice enough to send me back answers, so thanks, you sweet Finnish boys! 





and here is what these Finns on the rise- think fast, Two Door Cinema Club like indie rock- had to say to me. please note some of these questions are outdated! OOPS! 

you have on your myspace that you were the most blogged about Finnish band in 2010. so I'm taking it 2010 was a very big year for you?
Satellite Stories:  2010 seemed like a big year, but 2011 was way huger than 2010. We played at major Finnish summer festivals and toured Germany and Switzerland. Next year will be of course even huger than 2011, when we release our new EP in spring. I just wish I could leak all the songs to Internet :D Everyone's going to like them for sure. (!!!)

you're getting really popular on hype machine I've noticed (which is how I was introduced to you!)- were you aware of that? (I'm sure you were, but sometimes!)

Satellite Stories:  Yeah, we're aware of the Hype Machine popularity. But popularity at the Internet comes and goes. Playing gigs makes a band more popular than just releasing songs at the Internet, that's why we try to play lots of gigs.
what are some exciting things you have coming up? (recording more tracks, playing more shows in Finland, etc?)
Satellite Stories:  I actually answered this to in question 1. But I forgot to tell that we are releasing a new single at the start of December. It's our darkest song yet. And it is very danceable and energetic.


how did you all start making music?
Satellite Stories:  Esa and Jyri used to hang around and Esa met Olli-Pekka at university of Oulu. Marko joined year later when old guitarist Taneli moved away to study rocket science. It was all really natural. 

yeah I mentioned myspace DO SOMETHING

thanks boys! best of luck to you!

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
