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!

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

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"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
