some stuff


Arguably the best and most expensive music festival there is, that I will ONE GLORIOUS DAY attend, Coachella, is this weekend in California. Acts playing this year: Beach House, MGMT (who I am so over!), The Cribs (or wait, stupid volcano), Jay-Z, LCD Soundsystem, Them Crooked Vultures, Grizzly Bear, Vampire Weekend, Gorillaz, Thom Yorke, Hockey, Pavement, Muse, Tiesto, Spoon, Hadouken! (I love that name), Mew, Sia, Dirty Projectors....I could go on but it will just make you sad. One year, one year. Maybe next year? We will play it by ear.

I have been bad at updating and there are two things I MUST write about in the future. So I will try this weekend. Right now, it's 6 am. be gentle with me plz. I'm looking for a job and I'm graduating in less than a month.

Yung Loc is playing Edinboro next Friday. yup.

Music news you should be aware of:
- She & Him have probably the best album of the year JUST SAYING
- Hole put out a new album?
- Kate Nash has a new album out too but like- I rather listen to Regina Spektor and by that I mean give me Fiona Apple k thanks. although Kate Nash's first new song off the album was not entirely bad.
- LCD Soundsystem is everywhere. asshole!
- or, as my girl Ke$ha might say: a$$hole.
- I really like her, you know. I find it hard not to be in an upbeat mood when she's on. She brings out my fourteen-year-old slut like no one else.
- SLEIGH BELLS ARE/IS AMAZING
- Broken Bells (guy from the Shins + Danger Mouse) are not bad either!
- And Local Native? AMAZING CRAP

At Gannon, coming up, we have Jason Derulo (the guy that butchered that Imogen Heap song), The Maine, We the Kings and a band I went to high school with (hey Connor!) called The Romantic Era. that's this coming Wednesday, I believe? And Billy Collins is speaking at Gannon on Tuesday. just saying.

"Kick Ass" is the first Nicolas Cage film in probably two decades that looks good. a little girl calls someone a cunt in it. hahaha I'M SO THERE

"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.

"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:
