ABC cancels Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, ruins my life

Just in case you didn't know, ABC has recently decided to cancel Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 due to low ratings. My sadness/wrath/general dissatisfaction can only be expressed by a series of GIFs:















This is me invading the ABC headquarters

Also:



I know I'm a little slow on this, I'm just really lazy. Plus, it doesn't help that Blogger is such an asstard who's constantly getting on my very last nerve. To be honest, the show's cancellation wasn't quite a shock, considering the plummeting ratings this last season—if I'm not mistaken, it was the lowest-rated scripted series on ABC. Still, there was this tiny little part of me that actually hoped it wouldn't get the axe. On top of that, it's uncertain whether the remaining eight episodes of season two will ever see the light of day. I haven't even fully gotten over the Gossip Girl finale, now ABC goes and cancels my currently second favorite sitcom?? (After 2 Broke Girls, obvs.) This is ass. FUCK YOU, ABC!!!

You and I both, Chloe

I can't even begin to describe how hilarious, original, fresh, witty, and straight-up insane Apartment 23 is, you just have to watch it. Not surprisingly, I love that the show is about a small-town girl who moves in with a roommate in New York, as I'm dying to move there myself sometime soon. I have a major crush on Krysten Ritter—she was absolutely brilliant as Chloe, the titular bitch, who I consider one of the most relatable characters ever (again, after 2 Broke Girls' Max). Ugh, I want her clothes so bad, especially the leather jackets, which are simply to die for. I'm looking forward to seeing what Krysten will do next. Wouldn't it be the best if she guest-starred on 2BG? I'd love to see her opposite Kat Dennings! That would scream SASSITUDE. Gossip Girl alumna Dreama Walker was great too, she and Krysten had so much chemistry. James Van Der Beek had his moments, but I just wish the show had focused a little less on him (sorry, JVDB).

One thing still bugs me, though: Other than being a con artist, and apparently, a drug dealer, Chloe's real job is never explicitly revealed. I mean, she pretty much has the perfect life—a fabulous wardrobe, a nice apartment in NY, mysterious trips with rich diplomats, goes out almost every night. Some people, including myself, just assume she's like a modern-day Holly Golightly (i.e., an escort, like moi). Either that, or she's that good at getting what she wants. I guess we'll never know for sure.

This is what the show was all about

Here's hoping that a cable channel like HBO or TBS will pick it up. In the meantime, you fellow Apartment 23 fans can protest at the Save Don't Trust the B in Apt 23 Facebook page, or on the ABC contact page. I'm not sure if this kind of stuff has worked before, but it's worth a shot. All I know is that although the bitch in apartment 23 was evicted, she will forever be an inspiration to me.


On a side note, have you guys watched The Carrie Diaries like I ordered suggested a few weeks ago? I'm completely hooked on it, this week's episode was so cute. Although the ratings are steady, they could do better, even by The CW's standards. I really hope it gets another season, which chiefly depends on viewership numbers, so if you live in the U.S. and own one of those Nielsen boxes or whatever, I urge you to tune into TCD on Mondays at 8/7c. At the very least, leave the TV on and go do something else. In return, I just did a new Sarah Jessica Parker/AnnaSophia Robb manip. ENJOY.

I'm such a boss at Paint

Man, I should totally be making a living out of promoting TV shows.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"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

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
