While I'm no stranger to online blogging (hay livejournal!) I am a little bit of a stranger to the world of "professional" blogging. And I'd be an idiot to assume that's what this is, but I'm striving for something different this time. Something less personal and more atuned to what I enjoy reading (and other people I hope! my five potential readers, out there, in the great big internets).

what I'm aiming for is an A&E-driven blog, mostly music-oriented but encompassing all the spectrums pop culture has to offer (LIKE A RAINBOWWWW) from every now and then, with some history and news-talk thrown in for good measure.

so here it goes! I mean, honestly: the internet. if I can do it, it's too easy.

The Bird and the Bee- Ray Guns Are Not Just the Future

so I feel like I was kept in the dark for too long about this album! or maybe I just haven't been paying enough attention. that will happen.

first you have the title, which is like ..... so very Bird and the Bee. they just give me this late '50s - early '60s vibe, all cocktail parties and slight bossanova and sharp suits. seriously, I listen to them and I want to make myself a martini. which would help if I knew how to in the first place.....

here's the only song I've heard off it so far. for what it's worth, I FUCKING LOVE THIS SONG:

things I have to do:

- learn how to properly embed youtube here
- ....acquire MP3s that are can be converted?

YEAH, so.

in the mean time, I have a nutty week ahead of me. again. as usual. at least I have a cool interview lined up for Thursday.

"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

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
