the woman from drag me to hell says world war 3 will begin in november

There is this internet trend going on right now- internet trends! the best thing! think of dancing babies and people doing the "I Will Survive" routine at Auschwitz, which is like, SO APPROPRIATE OMG, even if you were there and did get pardoned from the gas chambers- well anyway, people keep reposting this Bulgarian mystic, Baba Vanga's, claims that World War III will beginning in November of 2010. Baba Vanga died in 1996 and could not see things after being trapped in a sandstorm as a child or something like that. I don't know these kind of things happen everyday, but this left her with the gift of "second sight." Apparently, she was very picky about who she'd help with said second sight. Whatever, I guess I would be too. Also- she looks a LOT like that old gypsy lady from Drag Me To Hell, 2009's preeminent film.

first of all this makes me angry because I have not done shit with my life yet and I resent the fact that the next world war is going to start right after I am telling employers I am available for a full time, real job, as I just posted on Journalism Jobs today. So if this is true, BIG MIDDLE FINGER, Baba, BIG MIDDLE FNGER.

World War III is supposed to last til 2014 and I hate to tell Europe this, although they already know, but evacuate your continent, k. Baba says so!

anyway, I will go out on a limb and say this is probably crap, and you should never take stuff like this too seriously because I could die in a car accident coming home or you could get hit by a satellite when you are out for your nightly walk and die.

I did find some of her predictions kind of interesting, and I mean, she did sort of accurately predict a few things. but really- we all just need to live our lives and play this stuff out.

And how? The pursuit of pleasure is a great portion of life, one of the best parts really. But I don't know. That's also kind of shallow and vapid, too. I personally- while being happy- would rather give my life over to helping others, which I realize more and more when I go without real employment. I'm temping at the end of the month, doing office work, but you know what I mean.

So I'm going to stop waxing borderline grossly philosophical and leave you with a link of her predictions and the idea of whether or not you want to take this stuff seriously.

(part of me, I hate to say it, is like OMFGZ NO WAY. and E-rope! wtf!)

Oh, internet trends. thank you, tumblr.

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

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
