Gryffindor Stanley Cup Win Controversial

Early indicators showed Slytherin House the sure winner, until some last minute trickery by Albus Dumbledore put Potter and pals in the lead. Final results had Ravenclaw finishing third and Hufflepuff steadily continuing the tradition of finishing fourth.

It is believed that Dumbledore awarded as many as 60 points to individuals within Gryffindor House for things as trivial as a "well-played game of chess." The last-minute funny business reportedly added an astounding 170 points to Gryffindor's total score, enough to award them the Stanley Cup.

Decorative banners bearing Slytherin's colors had already been hung and were immediately withdrawn and replaced, leaving students dumbfounded.

Team coach Severus Snape would not offer comment, but prospective seeker Draco Malfoy suggested that a change in league rules may reflect an affirmative action policy to facilitate the recent integration of muggle-borns. "The purity of the game," Malfoy stated, "has been soiled. First [the league] let them in, and now they want to play by their own rules."

"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:
