The Carrie Diaries premieres this Monday, January 14


Just in case you didn't know, The Carrie Diaries—based on the Sex and the City prequel book series by Candace Bushnell—will premiere this Monday, January 14 at 8/7c on The CW! Developed by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (the duo behind Gossip Girl and The O.C.), the show takes place in 1984 and follows 16-year-old Carrie Bradshaw (played by AnnaSophia Robb) during her senior year of high school. After her mother's death, Carrie lands an internship at a law firm in Manhattan.



I'm so excited! Despite what whiny purists and skeptics might say, I think this looks quite promising. I'm a huge Sex and the City fan, but as most of you probably know by now, I have a soft spot for soapy teen dramas, especially the ones set in New York. Unfortunately, since The CW is pretty much the lowest-rated TV network today (no matter how many times NBC tries to snatch that title), its shows tend to be hit-or-miss when it comes to viewership, so I'm really hoping this will be successful enough to stick around for more than just one season. Plus, I need a new fashion-centric teen show in my life, now that my beloved Gossip Girl has ended. So, can I count on my American friends to make this show a hit? Also, I wonder if SJP will take a break from looking like a horse to catch the premiere. KIDDING.

Sorry, I just had to use this one more time

Now I just need a moment to swoon over Brendan Dooling, who plays Walt Reynolds, Carrie's gay friend.


God, he's so dreamy. DO NOT TELL CHACE.

And don't forget to tune into The CW this Monday at 8/7c!

"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

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!

Episode 2: Authority Always Wins Well here we are again, time to sink our twin hard-ons into the new episode! Before I get into the thick of things, again I must let you know HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS. And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
