FRIDAY FUN DAY

So much going on today! Observe!


Coldplay have a new single out. YAWN I HATE THEM (except from the early 2000s, from then I am more lenient).


Jane Lynch, superwoman, is hosting the Emmys this year. IS THERE NOTHING SHE CANNOT DO? I doubt it, I seriously doubt it. 


Jack Kevorkian is dead. I don't think we've ever written about Dr. Death before. but yeah, I wish there was some ironic way to phrase that, but I don't think so....


David Lynch is giving a talk at the Strand Bookstore on Monday in NYC that I am so going to. I mean why not:  





see the man somehow responsible for that? it starts at 7. 


lastly, don't you think a 30Rock/Parks and Recreation crossover would be the best thing ever? I know we are of a like mind. however, I know what would make such a project INFINITELY more interesting:


LESLIE KNOPE:  I decided to visit New York City on a mission of good will.
LIZ LEMON:  Good will? I just happen to be here!
LK:  I know! You have absolutely nothing to do with my job!


The two share an awkward moment, laugh, smile. Ding ding ding.


ANNE PERKINS:  Wow, Leslie, I got lost on the subway.
LK:  Was it a raccoon?
LL:  We don't have any raccoons in New York. Michael Bloomberg had a hit squad assasinate them on the previous Christmas Eve.
ANNE PERKINS:  No, I met this girl in plaid, and we're going out for steaks later. Then she's going to play me twee pop. What is twee pop?

I APPEAR, PRESSED AGAINST THE GLASS, WAVING.




also, can tweet pop be the Twitterified genre?

"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:
