last night in sitcoms


Hot in Cleveland made its long awaited comeback last night. OF COURSE I watched. I was glued to my TV like that kid in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

my thoughts? despite a great cameo from Mary Tyler Moore and support from NEWMANNNN (hallo NEWMAN), this was kind of a dismal opener. I mean, it wasn't bad; it was simply entertaining- but it didn't leave me with the sort of feeling I want when I finish a show. sigh. I think this season will be all right, but second seasons can make or break a series. see: Pushing Daisies.

the real reason I started watching this show was JANE LEEVES, of Daphne-Frasier fame. and speaking of, when I am in Seattle next week I am going on a FRASIER-tour. meaning:

I AM GOING TO CAFE NERVOSA
AND HAVING A CAPPUCCINO OR SOMETHING
WITH A WISP OF CINNAMON
you know what I mean?
also: David, you better be there!

for a success in comedy though, check out Modern Family which never disappoints. this episode involved the kids walking in on the parents having sex. "Whatever they were doing, it looked like Dad was winning!"

I walked in on my parents having sex once. I don't think about it. though. ever. has that ever happened to you?

anyway no wonder Modern Family is dethroning 30 Rock at awards shows!

Hot in Cleveland = C+ for first episode = 10 pm on TV LAND
Modern Family= A! = 9 pm on ABC

tonight on NBC PARKS AND RECREATION returns. you shall not bother me tonight.

question: have you ever walked in on your parents?

I have no idea why I'm so despondent this morning, but I am. o well.

p.s. Ursula: mary tyler moore kind of looks like steven tyler these days

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
