in a vat of mud.

I saw the Fighter yesterday, which I had no expectations for. like really, I couldn't get the big buzz around this movie. I like boxing, I think it's a noble sport, but really? come on. anyway I saw it and DAMN. Mark Wahlberg puts together a solid film- pretty much everyone who acts in this movie acts their little hearts out. ESPECIALLY THE GANG OF BOSTONIAN SISTER SKANKS. oh American classism movies. Amy Adams does an admirable job of breaking from the mold and Christian Bale!!!! crack is BAD, kids!

RATING: A/9.3 Marion Cotillards out of a Gwen Stefani.

p.s. this must be the year of crazy mom pictures.

  1. sometimes I want to touch your shoulder and say, 'Brittany...where do you come up with this shit?'

    also, Amy Adams, holy crikees! I am in love with that girl. She had me at 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' (she was hilarious/awesome/slutty in that movie) but then Junebug? Sigh!

    (...CRUEL INTENTIONS 2?! That movie touches me in my private places!)

"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.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

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
