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.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"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.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
