Chalke-Head

As some of you must have noticed the beloved sitcom, SCRUBS, has moved to a new network. Yes the wonderful medical staff of Sacred Heart Hospital has moved from NBC to ABC, but is it the same?
For the most part yes, but one thing that really stands out to me is the character, Elliot Reid, played by Sarah Chalke, seems to have lost a lot of her charm.
Throughout the early years of SCRUBS Chalke really captured the essence of her role and transformed the character of Dr. Reid into an adorably quirky and attractive woman that pleased the audiences to no end. But something is missing about Elliot Reid on this new season. Is it her rekindled romance with co-star J.D.? Is it her interactions with new interns? Or is it that new haircut? It’s hard to say, but all that is certain to me is that something just isn’t right.
Hopefully, in the next few episodes she will regain that charisma that the character of Elliot Reid truly possesses, and what the deuce is up with Zach Braff and that beard? Who sent him an extra large order of shaggy for his birthday? But that is another topic entirely.

QATFYG: Do you notice something different about Sarah Chalke on the new season of SCRUBS? Are you going to miss the show when it’s gone, or are you accepting the fact that it’s time for a good thing to end? And finally, who is your favorite SCRUBS character?

PS: Don’t you love that I wrote SCRUBS in all CAPS?

"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.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
