I showed that (link) to my brother- he says something to the effect that "the dog is living better than most people." Only in New York! (fyi: I've never been to NYC).

I used to have a dachshund back in the day. Fritsy. I miss him. I really miss having a dog, oh god. In several years I might be running around with some dog attached to me acting as a suffragette child. I don't foresee this NOT happening. better dogs than cats, anyway. Today, while waiting for the bus, I discovered some of my neighbors have a sheepdog, so I'm probably going to steal it and change its name to, I don't know, Madonna Guy Ritchie Ciccone. something FLASHY.

in other news, I got my grades back, which was a surprisingly good deal. a D+ I can live with. no Dean's List, but considering how insane life has been, well, cool. A's and B's everywhere else.

my friend asked me how the job search was going....not so well. I've applied so many places but the economy is rough and there's nothing around. if something works out, considering how badly I do need the moneys right now, I should just enjoy this free time, because it's the first time since December I have not been stressed out. there are good things: all the flowers are in bloom, Gwen in the future!, everything's fragrant, my favorite restaurant ever (and attractive waitpeople and the thought of Craigslist but NAHHH too creepy!) walks to abandoned churches, a quiet cell phone, "Frasier," the air in the morning and breakfasts outside (! not quite BUT ALMOST). people seeing me in plaid shorts. bus rides in which people aren't calling me "a fucking dog" (o hay theme). STARBUCKS WITH ANOTHER BLOGGER (HI).

but without a job, I feel like a failure and that's no good. I feel like people will see me and be like WE THOUGHT YOU DIED/DROPPED OUT OF COLLEGE/WERE IN A SPECIAL PROGRAM AND YOUR MOM BRAIDS YOUR HAIR.

I saw a herd of Jehovahs today. they (appropriately) avoided my house.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

RIP Andy Warpigs

If you're even vaguely familiar with the Phoenix music scene to any extent, you probably knew Andy Warpigs. I saw them a few times at Yucca/Time Out Lounge when I was frequenting both spots a few years ago. Andy Warpigs was one of the most ubiquitous names you could come across, and with good reason - they were an incredibly prolific and talented artist, basically a Phoenix legend.  Unfortunately, over the weekend Andy Warpigs passed away - an extremely tragic loss. If you can possibly donate to the GoFundMe to help Andy's mom with funeral expenses , please do so.  Take care, Britt
