The Useless Critic Lesson In Gratitude

Hi all! 

It being the American holiday of Thanksgiving- or, as our Spanish American friends call it, "El Dia De La Raza" (Liz is saying this so whatever), we decide to reflect on what we are thankful for this last year of humanity. We are definitely thankful for a lot of things. Such as:

Cara- I am thankful for deviled eggs and Brittany Kemp. 

Kim- I am thankful for: my metabolism, my lack of offspring, my semi-functional family and friends, my brother's eventual return from the Middle East, the Patriots' game tonight at 8:20, Toe-Socks, the Capybara, the theory of relativity, the Boson Higgs particle, skinny-girl margaritas, the unseasonably nice weather in Erie, and most of all, wine.

Liz- I am thankful for the many brilliant and beautiful friends, family members, teachers and role models I've been fortunate enough to have in my life; the opportunities I've had for travel, self-discovery and expression; the re-election of President Barack Obama; and, ever increasingly,

Kurt- I am thankful for (in no particular order, pick one):

Drag queens

The fact that someone thought to cast Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor (on a side note, I'm thankful--or maybe bewildered--that LiLo is still alive)



Being gay (otherwise, my insatiable hunger for cock might be a little weird)

Bears, the gay kind. But the other ones are fine, too.

Lana Del Rey's pussy cola

Tilda Swinton

Milla Jovovich

the internet (aka kittens and porn)

The Useless Critic (is my sincerity showing?)

Britt- I am thankful for the people in my life, the people coming into my life, my work, the readers of the Useless Critic, my apartment NOW having furniture, the fact I am with Liz and her lovely family at Thanksgiving in Los Angeles, the fact Gwen Stefani is in Los Angeles, tuna balls, Liz looking like Diane Keaton today lololol, Craigslist, Hoda Kotb, not going to Renaissance Fairs ever, but Medevial Times, second chances, the fact dinosaurs stopped existing and this dog that is now slobbering on me. Also, Taylor Swift when she wins awards. "Oh my god you guysssssssssss!" And that I'm not a teenager anymore. Small miracles! 

Irina- I'm thankful for my large buttocks.

(Am I too late? Probably, but It's worth a try anyway heh.)

Rebecca- I have been thinking of my answer and now I think I thought too long. I'm sorry. It looks like I missed my chance.

"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
