Some place cool in Erie (because places like that might just exist).



There are a few things I miss about Erie. Let me stress few.


And one of those things happens to be the Books Galore bookstore, which I actually grew up more or less around. I went there from time to time, thinking it was some kind of massive comic book store, which it is, but it also offers some great and cheap reads. I remember being very impressed by their Keroauc collection, for example. They have books about everything....books galore, yes indeed. And that Spiderman out front, well. Let's just say it captivated me for the first five years of my life.


Erie is a place that isn't teeming with indie stores, much less music or bookstores, which makes a place like Books Galore so awesome. Sure in bigger cities you can get lost and find like 12, but when you are in a semi-small town, a place like Books Galore is a beacon


It also offers a selection of local authors (pretty rare) and sells games, in addition to books and comics. Make sure you check out their upstairs rooms! And their prices are relatively low, which is something I also miss about Erie. My wallet misses Erie, I will be honest.


They also do a lot of cool things, like Free Comic Book Day and various promotions. I will quit blabbering now and redirect you to Facebook where you can follow them more:

"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:

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i
