Open Letter to Jack White, mon ami

March 10, 2012


Dear Jack White, 
I suppose this is what I might become.


do you remember when I was in love with you? when I sent you my soiled panties and said "SEE, THIS, THIS IS LOVE?" well I never sent you my underwear, but I probably wouldn't hold it against me now. That being said:  I was mad about you as a freshman in high school. you were, the opposite of that boy on the bus, and of course no where near Gwen, but I thought there was something raw-sexual about you? I guess? You were brooding and pretentious, but not overly so. You were talented as all hell and when I saw you in the song that won my heart, "the Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground," well it was like the Devil himself signed my soul away. White Blood Cells is still one of my favorite albums- fast, to the point, punchy. Up until then, it was nothing like I had ever heard before.


Jack, I mean, if you had gone on tour back then and I had gone through my belated puberty that I apparently went through in college AT THAT POINT IN TIME, I think illicit terrible Cher "Gypsies Tramps and Thieves" things would have gone down. 


But Jack White- that was a decade ago. and I don't want to live in the past!


Since then, here is a shortlist of what has happened:


- the "garage rock" explosion, if you want to call it that, ended.
- the White Stripes broke up, while I was stuck in that miserable Detroit airport. JACK I HATE YOUR CITY.
- you formed the Dead Weather, a band that I never really liked all that much. despite having Alison from the Kills in it.
- you formed the Raconteurs. ehhhhhhhhhhhhh.
- you produced Loretta Lynn's album! LIKE
- you did some work with ICP! DISLIKE SO MUCH WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU
- you dated Renee Zellweger. I am one of the 2 percent of people in the world that find her really attractive. I am the 2 percent.
- then you two split and you married Karen Elson. HOT.
- THEN YOU GUYS DIVORCED (as happens) and threw a party. ????


Jack, I worry for you. I think your mind is going. I think Alicia Keys called it.


Even worse:  you look like Bozo the Clown met up with Edward Scissorhands in a dark alley! Oh, Jack! my heart aches for you. the thrill is gone but I still care!!!


I watched you on SNL last weekend. Yeah LiLo was hosting but let's not open that CAN OF WORMS, Jack. Let's just not do it. You still played guitar commendably, you still sounded like the Jack White I remember fantasizing vaguely (emphasize vaguely) about. And your new song is not half-bad, so there's some promise!




Jack, obviously you haven't gone all Charlie Sheen or complete "sell out" (how dare I say it!) on us yet. WELL DON'T. PLEASE. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. just like, go have a long discussion with Johnny Depp. seriously. because you're already kind of looking and acting like you work for Tim Burton already.


love,


Brittany


p.s. I have a lot of underwear to send you. take note!

"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

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

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
