~ THE HAPPIEST PLACES ON ERF ~


So one of those studies where they analyze the most exuberant countries in the world was just undertaken again. I was not surprised by the results, although I would have liked to see Sweden on the list.

5.) NEW ZEALAND
why: because it is nicknamed "the World's Youngest Country"
it is pretty
it is right next to Australia
there are a lot of slutty ladies there.




4.) AUSTRALIA
why: because all those spawn of British rejects are really quite pleased with themselves!
it is kind of warm
nobody lives in the middle!
it IS Australia
"I'm moving to Australia!"- Alexander
they have great electronic music (i.e. Cut Copy and the Presets)
they are attractive and also tan.
WHY ELSE, SIMON




3.) FINLAND
why: because Finland is awesome?
because they are near Sweden.
I love you Finland, you are our 4th or 5th largest group of readers.
they have Moomin
their government doesn't suck
FORBES WAS TALKING SHIT ON YOU FINLAND
they make good design
IDK what else to say
except that a group of Finns told me I looked like that bitch from Gilmore Girls. thanks!




2.) DENMARK


why:
because it too is close to Sweden!
all the Danes I've met have been really happy, which I think is sweet.
THEIR ROYAL COUPLE IS HOT.
it's easy to start a business in Denmark!
they ride bikes everywhere
and you know, speak English.
I think they owned Greenland at one point. AWESOME.

I kind of wish I owned Greenland....>_>.....<_<
who owns Greenland now?

1.) NORWAY

why: BECAUSE THEY ARE LOADED

and


countries that did not make the list
North Korea
Afghanistan
Mexico
Iran

why the United States did not make the list

the tea party and Juggalos.


things that are coming up for the Useless Critic:

some kind of Oscar pool
another Ursula review!
two interview-things
concert listings
a review of the new Cut Copy album
a review of that new Natalie Portman/Ashton Kutcher film which I may or may not be seeing.

"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
