blogging away the tears



I usually don't have the energy to blog when I return home from work- or to do anything, really- except the other evening, like Cara, I cleaned my room, which made me feel a lot better. and my music library. like colon cleansing. it was cathartic. do you think colon cleansing would be cathartic? do you think it would just be disgusting, painful and unneccessary? have you ever gone to THE COLON CLEANSING BLOG? if you haven't be warned DO NOT GO UNLESS YOU HAVE A STRONG STOMACH.

thus my blogging in the morning. haiiiiii.

so Adam Lambert came out yesterday and I spent the remainder of my day in total shock. I mean, who's supposed to bear my lovechildren now? nonetheless- I think he's got a sturdy career ahead of him. from what I witnessed of "American Idol" I really liked his style. although Kris Allen's version of "Heartless" (that was a good Kanye album, by the way. "505s and Heartbreak"- I truly enjoyed that) was the shit, let's be honest.

When is "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!" on TV??? I NEED to see Janice. will someone please inform me so I can build my day around this one event?

at work, it occurred to me- I haven't made a mix for this summer yet. WHAT THE FUCK. I'll work on it. I need to perfect it before anything and then I'll post it, just for you. only for you. I can't promise all the songs will be downloadable, though. I'll try my best anyway. I'm still jaded at the last mix I made. they never go over well, do they? you think, considering my staggering taste, that's a damn good gift. I sound so egotistical. I don't fucking care.

Cat Power's version of "Wild is the Wind" is pretty weak. and I write this as a devoted Cat Power fan. if you ever have to hear that song, find the Nina Simone spin. sends chills up my spine every time I hear it. It was on the "Revolutionary Road" trailer.

lastly, did you know Au Revoir Simone had a new album come out in April? somehow this passed me by. anyway, I listened to part of it on last.fm (here: http://www.last.fm/music/Au+Revoir+Simone/Still+Night%2C+Still+Light). good stuff! especially that first song. they're a nice little band that I wish I paid more attention to, frankly because I love that name. AU REVOIR SIMONE!

NO DOUBT ON SATURDAY
EXPECT A LENGTHY RECAP
AND A "DRAG ME TO HELL" REVIEW BECAUSE I NEED TO SOMETHING.

love, Brittany (I would like to think my voice leaks through on these entries and you don't need to know it's me but whatever, maybe you have a plate in your head)

"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.

"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

"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:
