Spotlight/Shoutout: Michael Moore


If Spotlight/Shoutout gave out statue awards, they would look like what he's choking.

Michael Moore is a name that is tossed around every few years when he challenges the ideas of the current administrations and their weak points. I wish I hadn’t reduced his career to that statement.
He has been bashed a lot by the opposition, but he has also been decked in gold at the Oscars.

So with a man like Michael Moore and his films, there are clearly pros and cons.

Pro: He has humiliated Fred Phelps from the Westboro Baptist Church multiple times.

Con: He has often been accused and noted of using data in his films that are inaccurate.

Pro: His documentaries are often entertaining.

Con: Sometimes he can be too one-sided.

What seals the deal for me?

In this video below he takes on CNN, and the real title of this should be
Michael Moore Destroys CNN!

I used to watch that network, but now they are just a waste of time. No matter how much I vent about it. It doesn’t seem to make them stop.

What is your opinion of Michael Moore and his films such as “Sick/O,” Fahrenheit 911,” and “Bowling for Columbine?” (Don’t forget “The Big One”.)

"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
