I uploaded these bbz for a friend because I killed my router a few weeks ago? true story I kicked it and it as thirty dollars at Target so I guess you can't expect much:

WHO? ME? I CERTAINLY HAVE MET ALL MY FRIENDS. IN FLESH. AND STUFF. I LOVE GOD?

and I'm not this much in love with the Huffington Post...no, really....how's that "30 Rock" joke go:
'Thank you for telling me what I already know. You should work for the Huffington Post!'


I'm writing the worst thing ever for my fiction workshop class. those kids will destroy me. here's a sample of what I have:

"You mean the guy with the fake arm?" This had infuriated Tiffany Gleeson, who could only think about the cold plastic touch of his arm whenever it was creeping up her skirt.
"So what!"
Well, getting back to the subject of the production, her name was foremost on the cast. Regardless of whether or not she had auditioned.
The role? Jesus.
"You have to be excited!" Karen Petrokleviez remarked to the woman she held as her best friend. Tiffany hated Karen; she had long ago decided the girl's sole function in her life was to hold her lattes and give her some organs, eventually. "It's the biggest role. Evah!"
"I don't care. I have Todd. My life has meaning," Tiffany sighed.


I don't even think they'll realize I'm trying to write something as ridiculously as I possibly can.
:( if I hadn't been so busy with work these past few weeks, I would've churned out something better. but at least it can be revised.

- oh yeah, Brittany

"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
