why: it's like a glorified 1980s ballad. forget all the showmanship- there's something very authentic to this song. I think it really proves her as a musician, which is easy to lose sight of in all that bombast.  

I love the beginning of this. it's very funky. Little Dragon, they are growing on me so fast. so hot and so Swedish. ughngngngn LISTEN

feels so old-fashioned and so quaint. are these two huge stoners or what? probably. keep your eye peeled to these NYU kids...your one, big, eye. 

no I don't care if it came out in 2010. I love it. NANANA COME ON

upbeat and catchy, here we see Ben Gibbard and co in a good mood. post-Zooey....very despondent album to follow? blah blah blah I'm not listening. NANANA COME ON 

White Lies' biggest detraction is that they are too much like their postpunk forefathers to be specifically memorable or unique. however, that being said, they are not a bad band. just can't listen to them too much. NANANA COME ON

this was my first big track of 2011. it was just- very addictive and dancey. Cut Copy, when they succeed, TRULY succeed. go above and beyond. are as infectious as an STD, word.

Uffie covers....someone.

PJ Harvey released her best album in some time in 2011. Kudos, PJ, kudos.

I'm not sure of anything else of hers, but hell! If this didn't dig its way into my brain before I went missing. lo-lo-lo what?

I fucking love Gaga. do something.

creepy and detached and spacey, aka Annie doing what she does best. then it gets weird and dancey!

pure dancerock. I love these white English boys...they can't dance worth shit. see them live for proof.

when this came crawling around, I was like "pssh Feist I'm so over her." Then she wowed me with her talent, once again. No one does acoustic sort-of-folk like Miss Feist and no one can captivate a crowd like her, either!


could care LESS if this came out last year. listen to it and get chills.

so there have been a lot of things said about the Strokes much-hoopla'd come back. blah blah blah. this is a good track and you can't deny it. paranoid and fast-paced.

I am so happy she exists. :) a young Bjork meets Europop and BERERKERKEK great things happening. Oh Land is only going to get better. this song? pure joy!

when I never get sick of a song, that means a lot. this song I always used to lift my mood. It still works. The most talented band of 2011 = these boys. Stephen Foster can write a song!

this song is pure bliss. THE END

the best movie? FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS. Or Bridesmaids. Or Melancholia JK JK JK

"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

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to , single women are presented with

"High Tide, Storm Rising" - Skinshape

A new Skinshape LP is on the way as of October 28th! "Nostalgia" promises to delve into the world of motives and motifs. Will Dorey (AKA Skinshape) has described this particular track "High Tide, Storm Rising" as "the main theme song of a movie." And if you have read any of my prior posts, you know I'm a sucker for anything cinematic.  Here's a full look at the Skinshape "Nostalgia" track listing: 01. Theme For Lazarus 02. Better Chances 03. Dreams of Panama 04. Moonlight Walk  05. Albion 06. High Tide, Storm Rising 07. Turn Away 08. Bohanon's Cornucopia 09. Bad Dreams 10. Fish & Chips 11. Dawn I would try to include something about live shows, but the soulful likes of Skinahape simply prefer to record and NOT perform live, which is an interesting choice in today's world.  Once again, "Nostalgia" is out everywhere as of Oct. 28th.
