Winona Ryder Turns 40!

A few days ago, I caught wind that one of my childhood heroes was reaching the 40 mark in her life. NO ZOOEY IS STILL SAFE, and I secretly anticipate the day I turn 40 with much eagerness. 




I'm talking about Winona Ryder obviously if that picture didn't tip you off. Yes, Noni, the symbol of Generation X, the star of Reality Bites and Girl Interrupted, the sometimes klepto, the OLD SWAN in Black Swan, is middle-aged.


To me, and countless others, I'm sure she'll always hover somewhere between 16 and 28.






I would just like to take the opportunity now to say WHAT happened to Alec Baldwin. damn! age, you cruel mistress!


My personal favorite Winona moment is basically everything about Girl Interrupted which I see as a prelude to the craziness that is Black Swan.






I would really love for this girl to make a proper comeback. It seemed like it was about to happen with Black Swan but then came the shitstorm of The Dilemma. Yup. Not happening anytime soon.


And Reality Bites! Once you graduate college, this movie makes SO MUCH SENSE. 





So Noni! Listen up! You are awesome! Stop making shit films and steal the thunder back from Natalie Portman! but leave Zooey Deschanel alone because she's immaculate and stuff.


HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY

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
