Feel my rage.

Hello, dear reader. You smell nice today. I don't. Or rather, I don't smell of cigarette smoke. You might consider this to be a good thing. I consider this to be a reason to be angry. Angry because I have not had a cigarette in a little over 14 hours.

Once upon a time, or more accurately, three years ago, before I started smoking, I would have said that I would never start smoking, that it was disgusting, and if I did start smoking, I'd be able to quit. That I had will power.

I was wrong. I do not have will power. I do however have an anger comparable to Margerat Thatcher with PMS.

Just today, I got angry because a man was being interviewed on the news, and the only way to describe it was a hatchet job. I don't even know what the subject of the interview was. I have no doubt that I would have disagreed with the man being interviewed though.

I have also been angered by a man with more tattoos than me (what right does he have to be able to afford more time at a tattoo parlour than me?) and by a train not stopping with it's doors directly in front of me.

So. Quitting smoking, it turns out, is hard.

Please, the next time you hear someone complaining how hard quitting is, or see them having a smoke that they shouldn't be having, please, for me, go kill yourself. We deserve your support, not your derision.

And yes, as soon as I'm off this train, I'm going to the store to buy a pack of smokes.

"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!
