moar best of 2011

I realized I left off some stuff. this is because am brain-damaged. you think I'm kidding, but I'm definitely not. there is something going on upstairs I don't understand. *taps head*

Mayer Hawthorne definitely deserves some recognition. The album feels like a true throwback to the 1960s and the better era of soul. NEOSOUL? yes please. "The Walk" is great stuff; mostly because of all the swearing. hehehehe....

And Florence + the Machine? another good one! Except I feel like almost, ALMOST they have this tendency to sound exactly the same on each track. Like aEJREAJRLKEJEAREJ life crisis romance drama BERNAKJERLKAJELKRJELKAJRELK - that withstanding, a solid effort.

(so verbose)
(I told you, damage)

Washed Out proved they/he surpasses the label of "chillwave." Surprisingly beautiful mood music, like Enya for cool people:

As for books, 2011 provided me with two especially great reads that were actually current day:

Lightning People by Christopher Bollen
Blue Nights by Joan Didion

and I cannot wait until I eventually see either The Artist or Young Adult. Diablo Cody aside, Charlize Theron can do no wrong.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

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-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!
