THE BEST OF 2011 BY BRITT

MUSIC:  



why: it's like a glorified 1980s ballad. forget all the showmanship- there's something very authentic to this song. I think it really proves her as a musician, which is easy to lose sight of in all that bombast.  

I love the beginning of this. it's very funky. Little Dragon, they are growing on me so fast. so hot and so Swedish. ughngngngn LISTEN

feels so old-fashioned and so quaint. are these two huge stoners or what? probably. keep your eye peeled to these NYU kids...your one, big, eye. 

no I don't care if it came out in 2010. I love it. NANANA COME ON

upbeat and catchy, here we see Ben Gibbard and co in a good mood. post-Zooey....very despondent album to follow? blah blah blah I'm not listening. NANANA COME ON 

White Lies' biggest detraction is that they are too much like their postpunk forefathers to be specifically memorable or unique. however, that being said, they are not a bad band. just can't listen to them too much. NANANA COME ON

this was my first big track of 2011. it was just- very addictive and dancey. Cut Copy, when they succeed, TRULY succeed. go above and beyond. are as infectious as an STD, word.

Uffie covers....someone.

PJ Harvey released her best album in some time in 2011. Kudos, PJ, kudos.

I'm not sure of anything else of hers, but hell! If this didn't dig its way into my brain before I went missing. lo-lo-lo what?

I fucking love Gaga. do something.

creepy and detached and spacey, aka Annie doing what she does best. then it gets weird and dancey!

pure dancerock. I love these white English boys...they can't dance worth shit. see them live for proof.

when this came crawling around, I was like "pssh Feist I'm so over her." Then she wowed me with her talent, once again. No one does acoustic sort-of-folk like Miss Feist and no one can captivate a crowd like her, either!

THIS SONG. IS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS EVER. <3 <3 <3 X 2000 MILLION

could care LESS if this came out last year. listen to it and get chills.

so there have been a lot of things said about the Strokes much-hoopla'd come back. blah blah blah. this is a good track and you can't deny it. paranoid and fast-paced.

I am so happy she exists. :) a young Bjork meets Europop and BERERKERKEK great things happening. Oh Land is only going to get better. this song? pure joy!

when I never get sick of a song, that means a lot. this song I always used to lift my mood. It still works. The most talented band of 2011 = these boys. Stephen Foster can write a song!

this song is pure bliss. THE END

the best movie? FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS. Or Bridesmaids. Or Melancholia JK JK JK

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
