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

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

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

RIP Andy Warpigs

If you're even vaguely familiar with the Phoenix music scene to any extent, you probably knew Andy Warpigs. I saw them a few times at Yucca/Time Out Lounge when I was frequenting both spots a few years ago. Andy Warpigs was one of the most ubiquitous names you could come across, and with good reason - they were an incredibly prolific and talented artist, basically a Phoenix legend.  Unfortunately, over the weekend Andy Warpigs passed away - an extremely tragic loss. If you can possibly donate to the GoFundMe to help Andy's mom with funeral expenses , please do so.  Take care, Britt
