weekly, useful round-up

Do you know what the antidote to catatonic depression is? researching your potential graduate programs and finding out you really do not need to take the GRE because your grades are high enough. THX LIBRARY SCIENCES. ! while an MFA in writing is something I will get before I die, I'd also like to be employed before I die. and making the big moneys so I can attract people with my large supply of cash instead of looks or personality.

ANYWAY, the Three Rivers Arts Festival is underway. click here for a better look:

because I don't feel like sorting through that shit for you. I am not your slave. but it appears Zee Avi (!!!) is playing today ANDDDD Medeski Martin & Wood, in addition to videos by CMU and Pitt filmmakers. God, now that I read about this, I wish I could go more. Well, it'll be going on for a few weeks, so head down there if you're not already there.

the impending reality of that just hit me like a speeding truck. forgive me. so I will be in Pitt in a week.

The remake of "Land of the Lost" opened this weekend. Anna Friel! "Pushing Daisies" tonight. I hope she goes on to do great things. And Lee Pace, too. incredible actor.

all right, tomorrow: Erie events.

see you (but not really)

"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.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
