My Late Night Golden Globes Rodeo

Jack?
Warning:  I have been building up some bitchiness and here, I unleash it on "Argo," "Lincoln" and "The Life of Pi."

Hi all. I've been in a creative slump lately, so forgive me for my silence. I may have broken my brain. However, the Golden Globes have become my favorite awards show over the years....so I can't NOT post about them. Plus, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting them in 2013. That must be in the Bible, somewhere.

So here are the nominations that just came out and my profound, half-awake thoughts on them:


- I like how "The Dark Knight" was snubbed from nearly everything. I read this might have something to do with the Aurora shooting. That's horrible, but could be the case.

- I like how Anne Hathaway is still existing. You go girl!

- Who gives a shit about "Argo?" Or "Lincoln?" Why are you people all acting like "Lincoln" is groundbreaking WE ALL KNOW HOW IT ENDS

- Who is Jessica Chastain? I keep forgetting who she is.

- What a year for Jennifer Lawrence! Perhaps "Silver Linings Playbook" is only bearable for her. Thanks, Bret Easton Ellis! 

- "Rust and Bone" got nominated for foreign selection and Marion also received a nod. I don't actually think she'll win the award, but it's obvious "Rust and Bone" WILL win something.

- ahaha poor "Anna Karenina." "Hi! We got snubbed in every category BUT score. Someone call Keira!" 

- seriously:  why is Ben Affleck still relevant?

- Ben, don't take that the wrong way. I love you and Jennifer Garner.

- Is it just me or are the nominees soooooooooooo boring this year? Gosh, maybe Maggie Smith will have a wardrobe malfunction or something.

- Christoph Waltz got nominated again. Surprise, surprise! 

- "Life of Pi" and "Hobbit." Two books I hated adapted into movies this year. To quote "Heathers" on these films in general:  "fuck me gently with a chainsaw, do I look like Mother Teresa to you?"

- in the New York Times piece I link to, there's a big old typo. FYI. We're human. It happens. Unless the New York Times is staffed by microwaves with souls...

Okay I'm done. I hereby declare the TV winners of the Golden Globes ahead of time, because no one cares:

"Girls"
Zooey Deschanel
Anything on AMC
the last season of "30 Rock."
Think about it! 


p.s. this was a lot longer, but blogger ate my post. see the nominees here

"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
