Titanic vs. The Titanic


Titanic vs. The Titanic

To begin with ease, Peter Gallagher is the man. If that is the first statement one must either be discussing “The OC” or “The Titanic.” The other Titanic.

In a miniseries I saw on CBS, Catherine Zeta Jones and Peter Gallagher got to take stabs at playing one of the most talked about subjects of the late 90’s. Much like the work of James Cameron, this film did it’s best to capture the story of a lonely woman in a bittersweet sugar-coated world seeking romance that is more indulging than Hostess.

There is first class romance.
Tim Curry shows up.
Then, there is also a third class or steerage romance between a young and common thief and a girl who threw her night clothes in the ocean. Wait, wtf? No shit. It’s real.

This version of “The Titanic” was entertaining to watch. In fact, it captured the luxurious essence of what the Titanic was about, such as the crystalline nature of formal early 20th century life.

However, what this film did not capture was the sensuality of James Cameron. For example, every character in James Cameron’s Titanic was able to pull you in with an intense dramatic nature (sappy much?) Catherine Zeta Jones’ version instead had too many wallflowers in the background and wasn’t able to bring the message of unity to the people engulfed in tragedy.

Yet the version with Catherine Zeta Jones has Catherine Zeta Jones, so it wins.
Still Love ya Kate.

"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
