emergency morning talk show post!


when I was putting together the page of wire news late last night at the paper, I came upon a most truly horrifying story:

DIANE SAWYER IS LEAVING GOOD MORNING AMERICA AND WILL BE THE ANCHOR OF WORLD NEWS TONIGHT IN JANUARY!!!

my heart STOPPED. it has taken me YEARS to grow to trust another morning talk show after being left, high and dry, when Katie Couric walked away from Today those dreadful years ago. and then this. it's like dinner at a restaurant that is going reallllllly well until your lover announces that she/he/it is leaving. and gets up and walks away with some attractive European. grr.


so now ABC has to step up and put someone as equally charismatic, likeable, good-looking, trustworthy, AMAZING as Diane Sawyer in their morning GMA slot. but they're DESTROYING a family! those callous assholes! I know Charlie (my beloved "I HOPE YOU HAD A GOOD DAY" Charlie) won't stay but couldn't they get SOMEONE ELSE. like, that one guy that looks kind of like a rat. what is he doing these days???

I know, it's a big moment for women. but I'm just disappointed. and I know it will be years before I can let another morning talk show into my heart.

:(

I don't know what I would do if Kelly Ripa and Regis Philbin split. hang myself? probably!




so what are your morning talk show picks? who should replace Diane? are you as DEVASTATED AS I AM?

  1. what's funny is that I had the same reaction when my mom informed me, as I was blogging, that charlie is retiring and diane is taking over abc world news. it was bad enough when peter jennings went and died - god, I loved him. charlie filled the spot beautifully. I...really don't know if Diane is nightly news material. she is perky and good for the morning.

    my picks for the spot are either elizabeth vargas (who fills in for charlie and has superior gravitas) or dan harris, who fills in on weekends. he is not that great, but I find him sexy and would like the opportunity to look at him more.

    you fine, fine anchorman

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

"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.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
