Tis the Season for Rilo Kiley Covers

Yes, I know. I've been writing a poem on the premise "your older sister listened to Rilo Kiley" for a while now because I feel like that's a friend's hip old sister in the mid-2000s band of choice. I did listen to Rilo Kiley (and adore Jenny's solo career) but I wasn't in to them in their heyday, so to speak. I bought "Under the Blacklight" at Target after a college class one day if I remember correctly. 

Also, side note: You MUST listen to Jenny Lewis's instagram lives - they are so, so good. Just saying. 

Well it turns out Bandcamp is releasing a Rilo Kiley tribute album, which is well deserved as they were truly one of the best indie bands to emerge from the early 2000s. The album "No Bad Words For The Coast Today: The Execution Of All Things Covers Comp" celebrates the RK 2002 "Execution of All Things," which is one of the band's best works. The full album featuring indie bands like Adult Mom and Diet Cig will be out on November 6th, but you can hear two of the covers already - from Sad13 ("Paint's Peeling") and Mannequin Pussy ("The Execution of All Things.") Go here to listen on Bandcamp. 

Proceeds of this album are set to go to G.L.I.T.S., which is "a New York City-based non-profit organization dedicated to supporting transgender people, offering asylum and urgent care for community members. After that date (the release date), 50% of the proceeds will go to the artists and the other 50% will go to G.L.I.T.S."

Definitely excited to buy this album when it comes out and support an awesome cause. Until then, check out the songs above and support Bandcamp.

Here's my favorite one of my favorite Rilo Kiley tracks off "The Execution of All Things." "I'm not a failure, I swear. I wish you could see it from over there. I've done a lot over here without you. I've barely been gone."

"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
