The Happening: A Zooey Deschanel Review

Traveling back in time to review films is always a favorite of mine, but this sort of feels like that show “7 Days” when what’s his name could only travel back seven days. I am barely going back into the past, but time travel is still exciting regardless.

Anyone ever see the film “Minutemen?”

So “The Happening” is a centered around “Mark Wahlberg,” and Zooey Deschanel gets to serve as his female companion/ person of intercourse (she’s like his HO or something; I forget).
This film came from director M. Night Shameelaaan, coming off of his critically-butchered and Golden Raspberry crowning film “Lady in the Water.”

“The Happening” proved to be different in plot but the same in lousiness, but I hate to burst your bubble when I say it doesn’t have a twist at the end.

In this film you can see Zooey Deschanel in an epic run for her life from plants that are mad at her, while Mark Wahlberg pretends to be smart.
It sounds like I am being really dull and really lame when I say that, but that is the point of the movie.

That is the actual point of a film by M. Night Shameelaan.

Plants suddenly develop the ability to go after Zooey Deschanel, and she has to escape them alongside the brainy Mark Wahlberg.

I love Zooey Deschanel, but this film was horrible. If you have read the description above, and you will see that no matter how it was summarized, it sounds like a load of nonsense with a big nonsense flower on top (that fu*king wants to kill you).

M. Night Shameelaan hit a major rut with his films at that point in his career, but in a concluding note….at least Zooey Deschanel looked kind of cute. #ShallowBastard

Who was the guy from “7 Days?”

"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.

"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:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
