the fiery furnaces, frasier, goodbye!


We have been around for two years. holy shit?

thanks for reading!

THIS IS FOR YOU, DEVOTED READERS:


The Fiery Furnaces are a hit or miss, but sometimes: they are right on target.

New York and DC are calling SNOWMAGEDDON again. apparently they have just experienced what I have known to be a reality for years: thundersnow. I guess NYC had to close its schools for the first time in forever and my sister hasn't been at school in a few days so whatever. It's snowing here, and I'm out in public.

anyway, I am going to embark out of Erie on what is the plane equivalent of a shoebox into Detroit and then I fly to Seattle and hope that I look interesting enough on the plane by myself that someone talks to me. I've actually never flown by myself before, so I'm a little scared, but hey. not as scared as I am for my eardrums, which don't take to elevations well at all. I'm also interviewing with a website while I'm out there and if that goes well, then I'm moving to Seattle and you should come visit. I also am seeing Interpol/School of Seven Bells (again) Saturday night in Portlandia with an Australian boy.

the biggest thrill of going to Seattle? all the Frasier references of course! for example, I am going to the Cafe Nervosa, which is the coffeeshop everyone hung out at.

BEST FRASIER SCENES AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET FOR FREE?

I am partial to the early seasons, the later seasons. um, the middle is kind of meh!


I feel like, because of my recent discovery of Real Housewives and who Camille Grammar is at as a person, I should be like, KELSEY IS SATAN. but God I don't think I could be married to Camille. I think I rather be married to Maris. Maybe Camille is Maris? KELSEY DESERVES HAPPINESS, HE'S BEEN THROUGH THE RINGER.

I can't wait to get patted down tomorrow! it's been too long!

question: should I wear plaid? I'm wearing plaid. flannel. I'll bring a guitar.

p.s. I tried to do some kind of weird group chat with Jane Leeves last night...don't know what was up with that. I think I was talking to a robot.

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

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
