A Covert Oh Land Concert Review!

SHHHH



My friend Alyssa recently saw my old love Oh Land during her residency in New York. I wish I could have been there, as tickets were cheap, but I live far away.

Alyssa (and others) had rave reviews about the shows. Here is a brief Facebook chat discussing Alyssa's specific experience:

me: 

so how was the venue



Alyssa: 
i've been to rockwood several times. it's a great spot, as far as space and design. very intimate. drink prices are pretty typical for the lower east side - not completely ridiculous, and sound quality is great. my only complaint about the venue is that i've often experienced a really obnoxious crowd.



me:
ewww
was this crowd obnoxious?



Alyssa:
for the most part, everyone there was definitely there excited to see oh land, but per my usual experience, there were a few girls who talked obnoxiously loud throughout the whole show.


me: 
ugh
how was the opener
and then how was oh land and feel free to use every word in the english language


Alyssa:
there was no opener. just nanna and her boys. the show was really, really great. i was really impressed by her live performance. she was funny (and charming) as hell, and all in all she really exceeded my expectations. she is ridiculously attractive, and endearing, and all that jazz, and is definitely talented. oh, and she had some friends playing brass that really made the show. think: a more attractive and more upbeat lana del rey that actually delivers live. she definitely lives up to her recent hype.


me:
i'm jealous dude
she's amazinggggggggg


Alyssa:
it was really incredible.
best track of the night for me? wolf and i. TORE IT UP. banging on her drum, her voice, the band. gah.
she's got a few more scheduled. definitely going again.

me: 
JEALOUS EVEN MORE


Alyssa:
she also played a lot of songs that are unreleased. and i liked that. a lot.


me: 
is she doing a new album soon
do we know


Alyssa:
she kind of giggled about that, how she was hoping to get songs recorded and wished she could say it'd be next week, but that she probably won't have anything out in the immediate future.


me: 
dammit nanna


Alyssa:
right.

"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
