THANKSGIVING 2010


Why I am thankful, by Brittany K:

- I am a privileged white person.
- I get to eat turkey and I prefer turkey to beef.
- I have work off.
- We did not obey the Indian treaties so I am not writing you from Navajo-land.

every time I drive by the Indian reservation, I see these signs that are like HOMELAND SECURITY 1492 WILL NOT PAY STATE TAXES. it took me a long time to figure out what these meant. fuck you Columbus!

oh the whole immigration debate seems funny from this weird historical perspective. anyway!

- Robyn decided to do a show in Cleveland on February 7th. I am thinking I will just buy a ticket and throw myself at her tour bus and be like WHYYYYY WE DROVE FOUR HOURS FOR YOU INTO ANOTHER COUNTRY THEN YOU COME TO CLEVELANDDDDD

- New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys are touring together. I wish I could say that at some point in my life I liked them but I didn't.

- I am VERY thankful for Taylor Swift's new hair. holy shit that girl looks good! I am getting a normal haircut soon. I think I will just show my hairdresser a photo of Taylor and be like MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

- I am also thankful I discovered online shopping and unlike you, my dear friend, I am nearly done. HATERZ

- shit, I saw the new Harry Potter. violent! dark! terrifying! Helena Bonham Carter scares me more than North Korea or the possibility of a terrorist attack (I am an American after all).

well happy Thanksgiving! guess what it's now Christmas time. yay consumerism!

me, as played by Diane Keaton:


if my grandma bothers me tonight she is getting a monologue from this film. bbl going to go find a wigwam on such short notice.

p.s. REBECCA WEAR ARMOR TOMORROW

"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:
