The OJ Simpsons: FOX Just Can't Get Off

Guess what?
This is an idea that seems like it was just waiting to happen. Everyone made comments comparing Homer Simpson to OJ Simpson back in the day.
This series is not new, but what's new here is that FOX has tried and failed once again to get this spoof of “The Simpsons” taken off of Youtube and the internet. But as you can see below in the video, they are still here.
The guys with “The OJ Simpsons” even pay a special tribute to Rupert Murdoch and his constant attacks on the show in the fourth episode.

Is this web show actually funny?

If you visit the youtube page for the comments section, you will see that it is about half the people like the show and the other half does not. I will say that my first impression was underwhelming. I say that because when I discovered this web show, I thought it would be a comedic goldmine. It just looked like it had so much dark and black humor potential (that is not a racist comment in the slightest). However, the jokes were not extraordinary, and in the first episode there is soooo much time where the characters are simply standing around. Still life is not for cartoons.

On another note, this show does have lines like…

OJ: Hey, it’s not easy being a single parent.
Son: Well, that was your choice dude.

And when OJ joins the Army in #3:

Recruiter: Are you an American citizen?
OJ: Yes sir.
Recruiter: Can you kill?
OJ: That’s what they tell me.

Sometimes it’s strange what pleases us human beings.

I am writing this assuming people are familiar with the OJ Simpson background.
One comment on the video was..."Where's Marge?" I wrote back "Take a Fucking Guess!"

"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
