back to real blogging? why yes I think so!

my internet went KERPLUNK for a while. how sad! I know, you are saying. how did Brittany not commit hari kari? it's been a struggle. but I'm actually kind of content at the moment, which is not like me at all. so, let's get back to basics, sweet thing.

THERE WERE TORNADOES AT PRESQUE ISLE FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. REAL, LIVE, TORNADOES. EXCEPT THERE WAS ONE SO IT WAS SINGULAR. I was really freaked out about this but then nothing happened to me. IT FIGURES. GOD, YOU JUST HAD TO PUT ME IN THE PATH OF THE THING, WAS THAT NOT SO POSSIBLE?


America's Next Top Model will be having a casting call at the Millcreek Mall because it wants to pick up a lot of ugly people I'M KIDDING I'M JUST KIDDING I'm actually going to this but not because I'm delusional and think I have a chance but rather because I just want to observe the going-ons. be there on July 13th from 5 to 8 p.m.! maybe Tyra will make an appearance!

And then there's the whole Roar on the Shore fiasco, which got rid of saint/new AI judge Bret Michaels to be replaced with Skid Row. I just wonder if people are going to camp out near my house to see Skid Row? if you plan on going, it's July 15 through 17 throughout areas of Erie where people can ride motorcycles. http://www.roarontheshore.com/2010/ go here! my people!

question: should I learn to ride a motorcycle? y/n/maybe

"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:

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
