WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM JULY 1-7, 2020 UCW 17 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Awesome! The Boston Typewriter Orches- tra has been performing its unique brand of music throughout New England since 2004 and will now be releasing its first vinyl album later this summer. Self-proclaimed conductor Tim Devin and a group of friends founded the ensemble as a joke, reports Ripley's Believe It or Not, and after premiering at Boston's Art Beat Festival, the idea took off. Using vintage machines to rhythmi- cally clack, roll, spin and bang out "music," the typist-musicians say different models produce different sounds. "A Smith-Corona Galaxy 12 has a power space function that makes a nice metallic clang sound," explained Brendan Emmett Quigley. Desperate times For those missing travel abroad, Songshan Airport in Taipei, Tai- wan, is offering 90 people the op- portunity to tour the airport and "pretend to go abroad." On July 2, 4 and 7, participants can spend a half-day going through immigra- tion, boarding an airplane and then getting off the plane and re-entering the country through immigration. "People who didn't have the opportunity to take inter- national flights at Songshan (can) use this chance to experience and learn more about the boarding pro- cess and relevant service facilities," Chih-ching Wang, deputy director of the airport, told CNN Travel. Tour customers will also get to take home "exclusive mysterious gifts." Awwwwww Seniors from Glens Falls High School near Tulsa, Oklahoma, pulled a classic prank on what would have been the last day of their high school career: On June 12, they hung a large sign from the school saying, "For Sale! Vacant Since March," along with some of the school's attributes, such as "2 full size gyms" and "swim- ming pool." But Principal Tammy Silvernell could hardly be mad: At- tached to the back of the sign was a letter from students she character- ized as "the most polite pranksters ever," according to The Daily Ga- zette. "This was all in good fun," the letter read. "We hope to have made you laugh and miss us a little more ... thank you all for an amazing four years at GFHS!" The students also offered to remove the sign and in- cluded a phone number to call. Question: Is there any word on "Single Parents" being picked up by another net- work? e talented adults and kids were so refreshing to watch. It was one of the funniest and well-written comedies on TV. — Marianne Matt Roush: As is typically (though not always) the case, it seems unlikely this comedy will be shopped around or picked up elsewhere, given that it was an in-house production (since 20th Televi- sion and ABC Studios were co-producers, all under the Disney umbrella). I'm not aware of much poaching going on of castoffs this year, which could be a reflec- tion of business being anything but usual these days. Question: I have just found and binged the two seasons of "Titans" on DC Universe. I like free trials and figured I'd give it a go! So, since I literally just discovered "Titans" two days before writing this question, I haven't kept up with its production news during the pandemic. Do you know if they were already filming Season 3? — Beth Matt Roush: From what I can tell, "Ti- tans" was unable to film the third season (in Canada) before the shutdown, so you're in for a wait. But if this is your sort of thing, you might be interested that another DC Universe series, the sort-of spinoff Doom Patrol, launched its second season on June 25 on DC Universe and HBO Max. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to Netflix or its garden of mirthly delights. Between "e Big Flower Fight," which is like a happier "Project Runway" for floral sculptures, and Southern-fried soap "Sweet Magnolias" starring the al- ways wonderful JoAnna Garcia Swisher, the streamer is abloom with reasons to plant yourself in front of the TV. Jeers to Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper for denying us the buddy comedy we deserve. e Bravo guru and CNN anchor (with host Jimmy Kimmel) have been best friends for years, and their hilarious back-and-forth as partners on ABC's "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" was enough to convince us that they need to do a gay twist on "e Odd Couple" as soon as possible.

It is easy to find your- self into financial quicksand, so act soon. TAURUS - April 21/May 21 Career concerns have been on your mind lately, Taurus.
