a review of a movie i have not seen.




I remember when I worked for the Spectator and Alice and I got a review from Al based off the trailer for that movie Love Happens. Alice, if you ever read this, you might remember. it caused some confusion. how can he review a movie if he hasn't seen the damn thing? Al, I still love you bb. this conversation just happened.

I am about to do the same thing. see here:

HEY YALL I'M GWYNETH PALTROW
I'm playing this washed-up country singer
with addictionz
like this hasn't happened before! see: WALK THE LINE

I SING MY OWN SONGS; THAT'S WHY YOU SHOULD SEE THIS MOVIE. isn't that a feat? like, has anyone did that before? God, Bette Midler. look away! look away!

Gwyneth Paltrow isn't by any means a bad actress. she really isn't. as a person, though, she happens to be an idiot. do I know her personally? yes, yes I do. she calls me up and she's like "Brittany should I get my colon cleaned?" as to which I am all like "bitch yeah go for it it's your digestive system!"

but Oscar buzz? all right, I will say this has ...................X..... on chances. yes I could see it, but if she wasn't nominated for playing Sylvia Plath, then I doubt she's going to be nominated for playing some second-rate Shania Twain/Britney Spears hybrid. by the way- Shania Twain has never had any problems except her cheaty ex-husband. lucky bitch. congratulations on the second marriage!

anyway, I think we all know that the real point of this movie is to show that fame is bad and strong women are never happy women and that Gwyneth can sometimes sing. ("I love it when we're cruising together!" okay, remember that song with Huey Lewis? they used to play it on my high school bus all the time? my dad sat next to Huey Lewis on a plane. HE IS SMALL.) I think Tim McGraw's performance will be commendable but Gwyneth is NO Sandra
(privatelydatingRyanReynoldsyougogirl) and this is no Blind Side. or Erin Brockovich. Or Eat Pray Love. Or Rudy. Or Coal Miner's Daughter.

the ending will be happy and involve a song of some kind. your life will be better if you bypass this in theaters and see Tron instead. I am telling you.



right, right.

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
