A Parks and Rec post from the heart, where it matters

Everyone, I've really fallen out of the Parks and Rec loop. I guess the last few times I've caught an episode, I've been more or less just not impressed. I mean last year it was on FIRE. this year, the fire has certainly dulled out. Been put out by the piss of Downton Abbey.


Also, 30Rock has been nothing but amazing this season. Yes, Liz Lemon is a whiny petulant child, (thanks NPR for ruining that for me!) but whatever it's FUNNY. So that's perhaps overshadowed Leslie and her gang.


so when I finally started paying attention again (wince) I discovered that the writers are TRYING TO MAKE ANNE AND TOM A COUPLE.


what.
what.
what.


I love Aziz/Tom, don't get me wrong. He's cute, funny, goofy, etc. But his SOLE purpose on the show is comedic relief. Okay, so they have given him dramatic arcs here and there. Nice. Good job, really. But I will never consider Tom a serious dynamic character and I'd really hate to see something started as an early running gag- Tom being mind-blown by how hot Anne is (BECAUSE SHE IS HOT) and the gimmick of him hopelessly hitting on her. But the sad fact is now they have thoughtlessly taken an old plot trick (did they run out of ideas? are they trying to paint Anne as that down on her luck?) and make it into something THAT SHOULD JUST NOT BE.


Rob Lowe:  GET BACK ON THAT SHIT. IT'S RASHIDA JONES. jesus. (is this, like, the "jump the shark" moment?) 


If this was going to happen, it should have come about in a more Friends-like way. not this! no! NOOOOO! god I'm just rambling on DOWNTON ABBEY is on PBS everyone watch it.

"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

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
