what not to do when a demon is following you

Yesterday Jason and I caught Paranormal Activity, which has been getting a lot of word-of-mouth (the way I heard of it was through my own brother actually) buzz these past few weeks. and I'm not much of a horror film person (at ALL) but I was like "oh what the hell! it's Halloween!"

it's being billed as the next Blair Witch, which is a double-edged sword (consider a.) how much luck the people that worked on that film had afterwards and b.) that it's such a joke, in retrospect) because of the low budget and camerawork and it's reliance on story rather than names or huge special effects.

and it works very well. the first half of the movie kind of drags, is kind of a bore. yawn. like- the protagonists, Micah and Catie (who are real people OMFGZ) are really not likable at all. especially Micah. oh my god I hated him. he was SUCH a douche. the girl's okay, but like, why stick with him, woman? you have a demon following you around, your boyfriend's just provoking it with an Ouija board, OHMYGOD LEAVE LEAVE LEAVE. but of course she sticks with him and they never get in a real fight and both being ugly deserve each other.

the second half, though. is frightening!!! and the ending, I'm not going to spoil it, but suffice to say I had a hard time sleeping last night. I made myself watch romantic comedies until I passed out. go me.

however there's a lot of unintentional humor in this....see if you dare! wha ha ha

ON THE SCALE OF BRITTANY SHITTING HERSELF, THIS GENERATES A 7.
(1 being The Proposal and 10 being the videos of myself from the library beating off in copies of Anna Karenina)
here's the trailer, if you've somehow missed it.

p.s. what did you guys think of Blair Witch? I remember being 10 and being very disappointed and confused by it.

"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:
