The Walking Dead: A Midseason Recap


So, for those of you who haven’t been keeping up on The Walking Dead here is a quick recap of the first half of season three: 
Andrea teams up with Michonne (a sword-wielding-loner) after being left for dead by the group. The two are captured and taken to a military like compound called "Woodbury.” Shortly upon their arrival Michonne leaves the compound when she begins to suspect some sneaky doings by the military-esque leaders. Turns out she’s not wrong as the leader of the group aptly called, “The Governor,” has been keeping his walker daughter locked in a closet with a bunch of heads… 

Talk about a conversation starter.
Group Rick finds shelter in a Prison and, after a tiff with some prisoners, two more members join their group. Lori dies, FINALLY, and the baby (having been cut from her womb) has managed to survive. Once the baby is, uh, birthed? Yeah. Birthed. Carl shoots Lori in the head to keep her from turning. 
"That's for not getting me that PlayStation, B*tch!"
Even as an avid Lori Hater I could not help but shed a tear at this dramatic moment. Not because of her selfless sacrifice (B*tch what are you doing getting knocked-up during the zombie apocalypse?) but because it’s a major turning point for the group. 

Rick goes off the grid for a few episodes but luckily Daryl is there to take lead until he comes back. T-Dog throws himself to the walkers and allows Carol to escape. She is found a few episodes later by *drumroll* Daryl! Daryl whose role is becoming much more defined as second in command. 
 Oh yeah, and Hershel loses a leg. 
A new set of survivors is introduced at the end of the midseason finale. Carl lets them into the protected sector of the prison but promptly separates them from the remainder of the original group. Just like Rick would do. Props to lil' Rick.

Glen and Maggie get captured and (unbeknownst to Andrea) taken to Woodbury. The Governor threatens to kill them and after some extended torture they finally reveal the location of their strong hold, the Prison. 

Before they are captured Michonne overhears Glen and Maggie mention the Prison. She shows up at the front gate, half dead, with a basket of baby food. When she recovers Michonne tells Rick the fate of his group mates and offers to take him to them. 

Rick, Daryl, Prisoner #1, and Michonne storm the fortress to save Maggie and Glen. In the scuffle the Prisoner, whose name escapes me at the moment, dies.
We hardly knew ye Prisoner #1.
Michonne kills the (already dead) Governor’s daughter and just wrecks the sh*t out of his eye. Andrea finally gets to see the true nature of the man she’s been knocking-boots with for weeks as he throws Merle and Daryl to the wolves. He blames attack at Woodbury on them. 
Reunited at last <3
The episode ends with a crowd chanting “kill them,” The Governor being a d*ck, and a torn looking Andrea. 

Hopes for next season: 

I would really like to see Angela die. I know she started out as one of the good guys but she is WAY too much of a loose-cannon. She was like BFFs with Shane and now she has aligned herself with yet another enemy to the group. I also don’t like that she just turned her back on Michonne at the first chance for d*ck.

I would also like to see the return of Morgan and Duane Jones. These characters were the first people Rick encountered after waking up from his coma and it would be pretty cool if their paths crossed again. 

I like Merle, and I'd like to see him join Team Rick, but I think it's just best if he dies. He can't be trusted and I feel like he would either but heads with Rick or turn Daryl from the group.  

Finally, I would like Michonne to kill the Governor. Dead. Just like she did his walker daughter. This guy is not mentally stable enough to run the town and the idiots the follow him blindly can be extinguished as well for all I care. Plus it's just super bad ass watching her slice down f*ckers with that sword thing.

"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
