Gossip Girl to be made into a Mexican telenovela

As announced last month, Mexico will be launching its own revamped Spanish-language version of The Greatest Show of Our Time. Co-produced with Warner Bros. International Television Production, Gossip Girl Acapulco is scheduled to debut in Mexico sometime this year, and as its title suggests, it will swap the fabulous streets of the Upper East Side for the sandy beaches of Acapulco.

In other words, this...



...will become this:



I now urge you to watch this following trailer:



And these are my GIF-laden reactions, per usual:











As you can see, Serena has become Sofía López-Haro, and Blair is now Bárbara Fuenmayor.

"La tuitera más temible del lugar"?? "Ahí se ven, perras"???! God, this looks embarrassingly tacky. Plus, it's too tropical to be GG, I mean, New York was pretty much the soul of the original show. This could probably pass for a cheap Mexican knockoff of The O.C., though. Either way, I honestly don't know how Warner could have greenlit this shitfest. Did I miss something or does Serena drive her own car now? And where on Earth is Blair/Bárbara in the promo (besides the cheesy opening credits)?? And most importantly, what the actual fuck is Mexican Dan's unibrow???




He just saw his own reflection in the mirror

Jesus, honey! Wax much? Ugh, he looks like the fugly love child of Zachary Quinto and Joe Jonas.

On the other hand, the actor who plays Nate—or rather, Nico de la Vega—is muy caliente. And just because he got nothing on Chace Crawford doesn't mean we can't swoon a little, right?



No matter how bad this hot mess turns out to be, I might actually check it out when it premieres. Y'know, just 4 teh lulz.

Also, if a Russian version of GG is ever made, I'd just like to throw it out there that I need to be cast as Georgina Sparks!!

"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
