10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week

Some of these won't apply to you, but #10 applies to us all as human beings.

10.) Nicolas Cage as Miley Cyrus in the "Wrecking Ball" video



Kim sent this to me and I have no idea what to make of it. I can't stand Miley Cyrus and wish she'd disappear. However... this. This. Jesus.

9.) The new Washed Out album, "Paracosm."

It's a gorgeous experience. I don't think I like it as much as "Within and Without," but I definitely am enjoying it. This is, in my opinion, the best track- "All I Know." It's like a less bombastic sequel to "Amor Fati."


Ernest Greene is such a talented guy. He makes music from a genuine place, and I appreciate that.

8.) I'm writing a lot again.

I'm almost done with a short story and I started this blog, which has been incredibly therapeutic  Every time I have written something, I have felt a lot calmer. Except the one entitled "Her." That one hurt. 

7.) Getting in back touch with old friends.

I've seen a lot of people I haven't seen in ages, and I've started talking to some people again who I really missed. I like getting back in touch with people. To realize they still care, it's incredibly sweet and affirming.

6.) "Portlandia."



When does this show start again?!?!?

5.) Fiona Apple on a Chipotle ad About Sustainable Farming



Okay: This also scurred me. 

4.) The Fact My Coworkers Care About Me

Seriously: I see these people everyday, and they genuinely do care. I have certainly not always been that fortunate.

3.) Working Out.

I only started, to be honest, because I was scared I let myself go. But, besides my more shallow reasons, I don't have any plans to stop because exercising does really make you feel better.

2.) This article.

It's worth a read. I was kind of bummed today until I took it into consideration.

1.) Guinea Pigs.



Having an animal (or animals) around is definitely a comfort, even if they do poop ... a lot.


I hope things are going well for you, anonymous Internet visitor.

"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.
