Fiona, still crazy, after all these years.

Word has it that both Oh Land and Fiona Apple were at SXSW this week. And I wasn't. Do you see the disturbing factor there? 


Well, Fiona is a lot more remarkable, in this scenario. She's been around since the mid-90s and in hiding really since 2005, when Extraordinary Machine was hauled out into the public eye, after being kept down by her record company.


God! I can't believe that was like seven years ago. I need a moment.


I did not take that photo. Someone from the HuffPo did. While this concert happened, I was in Phoenix, doing things. not sure what, but certainly not seeing Miss Apple in her yoga body glory! 


Also:  she played at a barbecue. huh. that's like, the one place this side of a car wash I would expect to hear her. whateverrrrrrrrrr. I hope someone was eating prime rib while she tore through "Sleep to Dream." WOMP WOMP WOMP. 


The real incentive for me writing this post, however, is her behavior at said barbecue jam. Total Fiona behavior, classic to the extrme. See as follows:


YOU'RE NOT REAL!!!!!!!!!!


people are reading into that statement and believing it was some kind of statement to help her get through stage fright, which she seems to have some times. I disagree. she probably saw a large yellow elephant standing in the back of the barbecue, much like Babar, and was simply trying to deal.



Judging by what I have watched up on YOUTUBE, Fiona still seems to have it. Her voice sounds more tired, true- and one has got to wonder:  how long can a 34 year old woman sing the songs written by a teenage girl (the whole Tidal album, for instance?) but then you take into consideration the deft level of maturity she wrote that album with....and it stands the test of time.

WOMP WOMP WOMP

Fiona will start her mini-tour today. I'm excited. more excited than I am for puky green beer! happy St. Patrick's Day!

question:  if you ran into Babar, would you flip out on him a la Fiona Apple?

"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
