And now, a post from England.

Yesterday (because it totally matters to you, dear reader, to know every tiny little detail here. You're just that good to bloggers. I like that shirt on you, by the way. It's a good colour for you) I heard about a person I work with, someone whom I don't like. Let's call him, for need of a name, Silly Billy. 

It feels more fitting to the story. This Silly Billy has a car. Or at least yesterday he did. He lives accross the road from a petrol station, and drives over to feed his car. Realising that he's forgotten his wallet, he enables the steering lock, climbs out, locks the car, and runs across the street for his bank card. 

Now then, dear readers; a pop quiz! 

What did Billy forget to do? 

There are actually two things he could have done. The first, less obvious one, is he could have left his car in gear. If a car is in gear, but the engine turned off, that car won't move for love nor money. He could also have enabled the handbreak. But he didn't enable the handbreak. And he didn't enable his hand break on a hill. 

Yes, Billy is about to receive a lesson in gravity. 

Billy's car has rolled down a hill, around a corner, into a main road, and been side slammed. By an articulated lorry. No one was hurt, apart from the car. 

Poor car.

"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:
