sup oscars!

I watched the annual Oscars in bits and pieces, flashes really. Like I was on a bus for a while then I was waiting for a cab then I was eating dinner but before that I was on said cab. So it was a lot going on, all at once.


Things That Happened


- The Artist sort of swept, playing hand-in-hand with Hugo. Honestly, I don't give a shit about Hugo. I rather watch Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close followed by ALL THE DOCUMENTARIES, FOREIGN FILMS AND LIVE ACTION SHORTS before I sit down to watch Hugo.


- Meryl Streep won. I'm a little sad by this, to be real with you. Part of me was pulling very hard for Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe. Oh well. I guess there are names some actresses in Hollywood know they will always lose against:  Kate Winslet and Meryl Streep.




- The dude from the Artist got best actor. Okay, great. But I still think Clooney or Pitt (aka MY BROS) could have easily gotten it instead.


- God, did Billy Crystal suck that much, or had I not taken enough sedatives? glug glug glug...cut your hair, Billy. it disturbs my SOUL.


- better hosts for next year:  Ellen or Steve Martin. Or Sarah Silverman....that would be a good time. NO BETTER YET THE CAST OF BRIDESMAIDS


- The Help:  I still don't care. Does this make me a shameful tiny person? yes. but. but. Emma Stone was one of the best parts of last night. Gorgeous and hilarious. A+


- did I stay up to watch the whole thing? HELL no


- Christopher Plummer winning his Oscar was one of the highlights of the evening. There were like, three highlights to this evening, you know.


- ANGELINA JOLIE IS AWESOME AND I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY


Things  That I Wish Had Happened


- Bridesmaids
- Sarah Jessica Parker showing up on a double date with Lady Gaga
- The Muppets terrorist takeover
- Meryl dropping every cussword you can think of
- and I mean cussword
- Ryan Seacrest in tears
- Meryl Streep sending an American Indian to accept her award




Final thought:  someday, Glenn Close, your day will come.

"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
