Back to the House and the Ink and Paint



QATFYG :
So this is just a curiosity question,

Where do you see the world of cartoons for kids in the next 20 years?

Growing up,
Some of my favorite things were watching “Ink and Paint Club,” “Looney Toons on Nickelodeon,” "Goof Troop," and even as a high schooler I watched “House of Mouse.” And of course, there were Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries, but I never watched that…..stupid Granny.
But the popularity of other shows such as “Spongebob Squarepants” and “Phineas and Ferb” completely dwarf the classic characters of Mickey, Minnie, and Bugs Bunny.




So what will we have in the next ten years?
Will there be a show with a dog that lives with a rat and plays the Congo drum while the rat is the lead singer in a poetic French-style reggae infusion group?

Will there be a princess that lives in a castle that secretly dreams of being a Broadway star = voiced by Lea Michele =?

Will they rework Goofy into an assassin that also enjoys grilling?

Write me your predictions,
Where will the world of Cartoons for kids be in the next 20 years?

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

"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.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
