I Saw Cut Copy Last Night!

why iz every1 taller than me :<
I haven't been to a real concert in ages and THIS WAS AWESOME. I have been trying miserably to see Cut Copy live since 2011- and my buddy Frank and I saw the indie-dance gods at the Marquee Theater last night! It was, I think, what the both of us needed.
First of all, I don't think I've ever been to a show where so many people were dancing. And how could you not dance? I white-person danced- meaning I was too tired and my legs were too sore other than to do anything but bop rhythmically in tune with the music.

See video for an example-

Cut Copy puts on a good, energetic live show. Lots of sweating, dancing and at least one person who was on drugs ("I JUST TOOK SOME ECSTASY")-

some dude offered me ecstasy once when I first moved here. I was so tempted but my friend strongly advised against it. She said I'd be happy for an hour and sad for a month. I was like "This is a drug that essentially recreates my existence!"

They played a ton off their new album, "Free Your Mind." It all sounded awesome (shamefully, I haven't listened to it yet).

And they played all their hits (i.e. "Where I'm Going," "Take Me Over," "Heart on Fire"). Even the songs I didn't like as much (or recognize)-

uhh....
The best part, though, was they gave their all to each song they did. Everything they got so into, which is awesome I think. I saw the Secret Machines when I was like 18 and you could tell they just did not care. But Cut Copy cared; they even inquired about the welfare of the girl who passed out before the show (awww).

We only saw one opener, I should add. Larry Gus- a Greek musician who is quite interesting. I suggest you give him a whirl someday.


Now I haven't been to a concert in AGES like this. I left Eleanor Friedberger/Sea Wolf early because I was sleepy and my ex and I left She & Him early because she was sleepy.

I felt very young, happy and hopeful once Cut Copy came on stage. I forgot how fun a good concert is; I really did. 

And I forgot how great the people-watching is. I am pretty sure I witnessed some polyamorous action. This girl was all over this guy, then another girl, then the dude again. I came to the conclusion by the end of the evening they were just one giant couple. To each to his own.

"Lights and Music" was the last song they played. It was a terrific reward. This bro and I bonded over it. It made my week.


LIGHTS AND MUSIC! FREEBIRD! FREEBIRD!

"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.
