dead people of the day

In honor of the Pizzabomber trial unfolding in Erie, I am dedicating my dead people post to everyone from that scenario that is now dead. Especially pizza bomber himself, Brian Wells. I really do remember this day well- the day Erie stole the national spotlight for such a bizarre, bizarre story.

PHONE RANG IN 2003
RANG RANG
me: hullo
bff: omg someone is trying to blow up the Millcreek Mall.
me: WOT WHY
bff: WE CAN'T LET TERRORISTS WIN BRITT-NAY.
me: OMG IF THEY BLOW IT UP WHERE AM I GOING TO REEBOKS *cries, listens to Toby Keith*

fun fact: I actually worked near the scene of this in the summer of 2006. I'm pretty sure I could get a job leading people on a tour of all the places involved in this weird ass story.

anyway though, comfort yourself with knowing that while Marjorie appeals for her sanity this afternoon, I will be within mere blocks of her. like, so close she could come and rip my face off if she wanted to.

what Marjorie is listening to right now:

"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:
