my alma mater has gone insane

So the school I graduated from in May, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, has made the really wise decision to close their libraries on Saturdays.

It just makes me so happy I don't go to that school anymore.

The ridiculous thing is the school just spent a shitload of money on a Fighting Scot statue, that, I'm sorry, is no where near as useful as a library. my mother told me, over coffee and newspapers this morning, that the statue is in fact "scary." I believe it! all I can think of is like, a bronze version of Mel Gibson with blood dripping from his mouth. eeee!

anyway, if you go to Edinboro, or care about what this says about the ever-declining state of the American education system, please join the little facebook thing:

  1. J. Bro said the unveliling of the statue was one of the most historic events, for hundreds of years to come!

    Regardless of setting or context!

    But all of the library's Saturday money seems to have gone to finance a trip to Taiwan, for the women's basketball team. So--

"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:
