if i ran things! (and let's be honest I SHOULD)

- There would be a concert series at Erie's bayfront in which they brought in small up-and-coming bands, not neccessarily indie but all different genres. like, for example, and this might be a bit of a stretch now, I THINK WE COULD BRING IN LAURA MARLING IF WE REALLY TRIED. but we don't try. we settle. Erie has a cool vibe to it, sometimes- it'd be nice to capitalize on it! I am sick of going to the Block Party and Eight Great Tuesday line-ups and seeing a bunch of ... well, you know. low expectations are key I guess.

- There would be also concerts at Jerry Uht. why the F not!

- someone would put a Japanese steakhouse on the bayfront and get rid of that awful place at the mall.


- public transit would go until midnight!


- also, the Maxim hot 100 would only include Marion Cotillard, Emily Haines, Gwen and Betty White. oh and J-Lewis. <3

"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.

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:
