The Knife – "Full of Fire"

A few days ago (why am I always late?), The Knife unveiled the first single from their highly anticipated album Shaking the Habitual, which is due out April 8 internationally and April 9 in the United States. "Full of Fire" is a nine-minute club banger featuring urgent techno beats and weird-ass electronic noises. I can definitely picture myself slut-dropping to it in a sweaty, underground Stockholm club with some guy I've just met.

The gender-bending, equally bizarre music video/short film for the song was directed by Swedish filmmaker and visual artist Marit Östberg, who contributed a film to the 2009 Swedish feminist porn compilation Dirty Diaries (which includes music by Fever Ray).


The duo also revealed the album's eye-piercing artwork and track listing (mind you, it's almost 100 minutes long):


1. A Tooth for an Eye
2. Full of Fire
3. A Cherry on Top
4. Without You My Life Would Be Boring
5. Wrap Your Arms Around Me
6. Crake
7. Old Dreams Waiting to Be Realized
8. Raging Lung
9. Networking
10. Oryx
11. Stay Out Here (featuring Shannon Funchess and Emily Roysdon)
12. Fracking Fluid Injection
13. Ready to Lose

Best song titles ever.

So many of my favorite artists putting out new albums this year, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, Depeche Mode, Hurts, and quite possibly, Goldfrapp!! Not to mention Azealia Banks' full-length debut album! That is, if her sassitude doesn't fuck it up for her first. This is me right now:


Ta-ta!

"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

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-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
