the kid is not my son

At 1 P.M. EST the long-awaited Michael Jackson memorial will air, on all the major networks as can be expected. Los Angeles will be pandemonium. it makes me happy I am not there (apologies to those of you that have to deal with that). I'm kind of upset though work has me missing it, just because it would one of those historic remember-when things to watch, like the Diana funeral, the Obama inaugeration and the lunar landing ;) (ah! emoticons are affecting my writing EVERYWHERE!)

you can watch it online at one of the places mentioned here: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-10280634-93.html

Also, "Ten Things I Hate About You" the TV series will premiere on ABC Family at 8 p.m. My feelings on this? mixed, mixed, very mixed. WHO THINKS IT'S GONNA SUCK? ME ME I DO.

And I'm excited, because although I rarely watch Lifetime and advise you to do the same (oh hey Grandma), one of my all-time favorite movies, "Ghost World," will be airing Thursday night at 9. I haven't seen "GW" in FOREVER. but it offers some hilarious performances by Thora Birch (where are you?), ScarJo (!!! before she got huuuuuuge), Steve Buscemi (always the best) and the late Brad Renfro. check out the trailer, straight out of 2001:



For those of us that get our kicks away from our television sets, in Erie, the summer staple "Eight Great Tuesdays" returns at the Liberty Park and Ampitheater. I never go to these things, but this year, since they're offering Arlo Guthrie on the 21st. Tonight opens with Key West Express, and it closes on August 21st with .... RICK MAGEE AND THE ROADHOUSE ROCKERS. ohhhh boy. but let's not think about August, shall we?

"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:
