I’ll be glad to be running that hill with Kate Bush forever | Rebecca Nicholson

IThe f Fleetwood Mac could be introduced to a new audience because someone posted a clip of themselves on a skateboard drinking half-lip juice syncopated with Dreams – a whole bunch of people who just haven’t heard of it because of Corrs! Then, of course, Kate Bush Go Up That Hill (Deal With God) It will be the sound of summer 2022.

Her 1985 solo / stone-cold classic jumped into the charts, and according to the number of SEO-friendly headlines I’ve seen, a new generation is clicking on “Who’s Who?” Kate Bush? in the search bar. Which means that an older generation inevitably talks about their need to wonder who Kate Bush is in the first place. Let’s see how that works when you have a question about TikkyTok, Grandma.

Run Up That Hill came to prominence again as it appeared in a crucial scene in new season From Weird things, although to say they are features belittles their role. It is part of the action and drives the story. According to the program’s music supervisor, Nora Felder, get permission Using it was not an easy task. (You might say they had to run… Actually, let’s leave it, it’s been a long bank holiday for everyone.) Bush doesn’t often allow her songs to be used in movies or on TV and has been given a full description of the scene and context before she makes her decision, Although it turns out she was a fan of the show anyway.

Weird things Not the only reference to the power of Run Up That Hill that has emerged in recent years – Fiona Apple refers to it In her song Fetch the Bolt Cutters as a metaphor for the industry she’s constrained — but she’s great at harnessing her power. Television and movies are full of moments that reach glory in music, but they are more rare than you think until they end up being truly unforgettable. People who are working end up changing the way the song is heard, perhaps for a long time to come, which has its advantages and disadvantages, even though it’s not installed at all. Think Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’, a witty closing note of sopranobefore dipped in cheese cheerful.

If any song can pull itself against intimacy, it’s Tran Up the Hill. Whether it was for the first time or for the five hundredth time, you still hear it now and think, What the hell was that? Then play it again.

Kristen Baransky: A good fight won’t pull punches to the end

fact that good fight Getting to six seasons is amazing. Perhaps the TV executives who kept saying yes to more episodes were giving small doses of psilocybin like Diane Lockhart, played by gorgeous Kristen Baransky. (This is the woman who I gave Elon Mask evil, for those who prefer memes.) The series, ostensibly about a legal firm in Chicago, ended up being a crazy interpretation of the rampant and incessant real-life news cycle, which, as you might reasonably argue, has enough of the craziness that it is. However, it was absolutely gorgeous, under criminal scrutiny, and Baransky’s performance is one of the all-time greats.

Sadly, all the great TV shows have to come to an end and their upcoming sixth season will be their last. Its creators, Michelle and Robert King, told The Hollywood Reporter They realized that they were “tired” and that the end was near. However, for a show he succeeded in Weinstein, Epstein, Russian Compromate A musical theatrical performance on censorship in China was Actually censored in the United Statespromises to come out swinging.

“Season 6 focuses a lot on the upcoming Civil War,” said Michelle King. Good.

I’m not usually a fan of celebrity interviews of the “in their own words” type, because they often feel like volunteers, but I had a lot of fun interviewing Elliot Page’s American character Respected story cover This month. The actor revealed he was transgender at the end of 2020 and offered his eloquent and often poignant thoughts about transition, identity, joy, and pain (as well as sports, books, and dogs).

Page also talked about his brilliance in his outstanding film, Juno, in 2007, before he moved on, when he played a teenage girl who got pregnant by her boyfriend and ended up in trouble with adoption. He said he wanted to wear a suit at a red carpet event, but the studio insisted on wearing the dress. It’s worth looking for photos of what his teammate, Michael Cera, wore during those same promotional duties; You might not fall dead in shock to see that he’s wearing casual pants and dirty sneakers. I found this oddly infuriating, years later, not least because Juno’s character is the type of jeans and T-shirt in the movie.

The full cover story is worth reading. It struck me as being particularly generous. I can hardly imagine how exhausting and frustrating it is to explain your right to simply exist as a transgender person. Paige doesn’t have to put himself down and discuss his darkest moments with the whole world, but in doing so, there is hope, that only one person reading it might gain a new, greater understanding.
