The Kennedys, Part 2

JFK: (presenting idea to Congress) ...so that's why we need to go to THE MOON.

CONGRESS: *stares*

CONGRESSMAN: Um, okay.

SCENE 2

This scene would serve as nothing but a vehicle for whatever Katie Holmes/Jackie is wearing. I feel like we could call Marc Jacobs and ask him to design something special for this momentous occasion. She is sitting on her designer sofa (creamy white) reading Jack Keroauc's The Dharma Bums. "Girl from Ipanema" plays.

JACKIE : *flips page* hmmmmmm.

SCENE 3

This is the birthday scene. Observe:

MALE FRIEND WHO IS SEMI-DRUNK: Happy birthday Jackie boy! (slaps JFK on the shoulder)

JFK: Aw shucks.

MALE FRIEND: How does it feel to be president?

JFK: Well....

It appears he is about to prattle off into a full-fledged speech when Marilyn Monroe stops him.

MARILYN MONROE: Hello stranger. Can we go somewhere and be, alone? Here? Now? I'd like to be alone with you in some semblance of some respect. Big boy.

*seductively smokes cigarrette*

BOSTONIAN SKANK IN BACKGROUND: And I saidah to ah herh, you skankah. You sluttah, your muddah was an Athiest and your fathah was a manatee DON'T YOU DARE TALK TO ME LIKE DAT, YOU MISERABLE HOEBAG, I WILL TEARAH THE HAIRAH OUT OF YO GENTILE HEAD.

MARILYN: No. Who do you think I am, Zsa Zsa Gabor?

*she pulls him aside*

BOSTONIAN SKANK: I said YOU LEMON POT PEE BRAIN BITCH, YOU UNATTRACTIVE TROLL, I HOPE YOU GET SYPHILIS AND I HOPE IT'S HORRIBLE.

(in my mind this character is played by Lisa Kudrow)

JACKIE: *watches from the other side of the room, holding a martini*

JACKIE: *is bitter*


TO BE CONTINUED

p.s. I have this whole side of my family from Boston no one gives a shit about. like, my grandmother's sibling's kids all live in Boston and New York but like I said, no one gives a shit.

p.p.s. GO STEELERS, YOU BEAT THOSE UPTON SINCLAIR WANNABES. uh huh! you know what it is! - Wiz Khalifa

"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.
