a pre-may day celebration (of sorts)

People in Scandinavian/Baltic countries and Europe and immigrants and people in Fitzgerald short stories LOVE tomorrow. I don't really care. but I love that month (even though it looks rainy and dismal for the first part, at least).

so this post serves as a "celebration." OPEN YOUR MIND. May is big for me, I turn 23 and get to go to a few cities and possibly have a big job interview again. I try not to get my hopes too far up, because I'm used to having my hopes' wrists slashed for whatever reason.

FOR SOME REASON, I've been thinking a lot about Mexico. that makes no sense. I'd love to go to Mexico but I understand I might die. :/ for the time being, I will settle for the weekly El Canelo excursion (HOLLA I LOVE YOU) as my Mexico interaction.

here are some songs about Mexico to get you thinking about Mexico:

I still need to hear their new album!

and a band from Finland, Satellite Stories, has a song "Mexico" which I really like but cannot find on Youtube. so I found this song instead, which is about not wanting to be a part of the Helsinki art scene. To prove I think too much I was really curious as to whether that was a bad thing? whatever nothing beats the joke that is the ERIE ART SCENE aka intellectuals meeting at Panera Bread every Tuesday at 7 to discuss Jodi Picault books:

then, I think we need some Rihanna in this bitch. observe:

props to Algerie Nader, who turned me onto "S&M." the idea of him, Kate, Wills and Red Bull...brilliant.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"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.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
