odds and ends

if you caught the news at all this morning (and you're American) you probably noticeD the joyful reunion of journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee with their families. it took Bill Clinton going over to North Korea for this to happen. Bill Clinton. is there anything that man cannot do?

be faithful to HilHil? badababdababa GONG. old joke? blow me! I'm on a roll today.

Two trailers:

Tucker Max's I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell, which is my guide for living:

this one's kind of old, but for the beloved children classic's Where the Wild Things Are, which I appreciate for nostalgia purposes and Arcade Fire obviously

Spike Jonze is a pretty good director so I think this will be worth it. and also I have fond recollections of reading the book...the same with Tucker Max, but not really.

"Mrs. Cold"- Kings of Convenience

lastly, Erie readers: go see "Everlasting Moments" at Mercyhurst today! those Swedes know how to make a good film!


  1. not gonna lie, I LOL'd at the be faithful to Hillary comment. Bill = total manwhore. obvs.

"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

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!
