WHY 2012?

The economic crisis did not inspire a film about the collapse of civilization, director Brad Grimm said -- mythology did.
When actor and writer Sam Lawther began working on the concept three years ago, lore about the date 2012 made it seem like "the perfect time" for the film, Grimm said.The classical Mayan calendar will finish a 5,125-year cycle on Dec. 21, 2012, according to New Age writer Daniel Pinchbeck. On that day, the sun will also line up with the Milky Way galaxy -- a once-in-26,000 years event, according to Cornell University's "Ask an Astronomer" Web site.
But there were more surprises ahead. The crew decided to feature a white buffalo in the film. One of the rare animals was born in November 2006 at the Woodland Zoo in Farmington, in southwestern Pennsylvania.Grimm learned some Native American spiritual leaders see the animal -- and a black buffalo born at the zoo a few months later -- as signs.
"The white buffalo signified a warning, whereas the black buffalo meant the creator had given up on humanity," he said.
It was one of many "freaky" occurrences, he said."I don't want to sound weird, but something about what we're doing is kind of on the right track," he said.

"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.

"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:
