The Useless Critic Does DC


So on the night of Brittany Kemp’s birth renewal, we decided to hit the city, and by the city I mean we got to walk on the sunshine of the nation’s capital.
And no, we did not score with the cast of that crappy MTV Show. (Get it? The City? Get it?)

So in addition to trading business cards with the top politicians and yelling “HI MICHELLE” to the White House, we explored the true roots of American History.

Actually, I am a total liar. We spent about an hour just looking at dresses in a museum exhibition on First Ladies. I felt I was unfolding my critiques like the least likable judge on “Project Runway.” (Michael Kors).

After getting in touch with the nation’s heritage, we toured Washington D.C.’s restaurant scene, and we even got to participate in what is known as a Pub Quiz Trivia Night. Thanks to an anonymous source, our team name was unfortunately,

“If you built your house next to the Mississippi River, I don’t feel sorry for you,”

And proudly, I can state that we got the largest amount of disrespect. Even the pub quiz moderator took a stab at us.

QATFYG:
Is it ironic that that was our team name, considering we have a link in Be Useful to Help the South?

And more importantly,
What did we truly learn about the nation’s capital?

Lots of Ethiopians.

PS: Department of Justice BITCH!

"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.

"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

"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:
