HEY! I haven't written in here in a while! A few observations about life:

While going through old posts on the UC, I realized I made this post regarding Fiona Apple's new album. It's been over a year. Still no new album. There's even been other posts about a new Fiona album coming out in November 2011, but its now almost mid-December 2011 and there hasn't even been a link of a new single. Reason? Apparently Fiona's record label won't release it. I'm too lazy to look up the specifics, but it's kind of like what happened nearly 7 years ago with her last album, Extraordinary Machine. Will there be Free Fiona part 2? Why can't Fiona just release the music herself? Is she scared she won't raise enough money through a Kickstarter campaign? Really Fiona?



ANYWAY.

This year I have occupied my time: dicking around on Tumblr, doing actual important things with my life like graduating from college and finishing up a post-bachelor's mental health fellowship program, going to Vegas to see The Strokes, going to Coachella, getting a tattoo, getting another tattoo, SEEING FIONA IN CONCERT FRONT ROW, meeting two ladies at a Death from Above 1979 concert and going with them to San Francisco to see DFA a month later, meeting DFA, and going to various (improv) comedy shows at Upright Citizens Brigade and some other comedy theatre.




Is it weird to ask the host of the podcast show I go to nearly every Saturday at that "other comedy theatre) for an interview with UC even though he knows who I am without me talking to him? I think he thinks I'm stalking him. Story developing...

PS - MY BROTHER IS MAKING A MOVIE!!!1



It's been filmed at the Viper Room (where River Phoenix died you guys!!!!) etc but he just needs $1,800 more to finish the film and have it screen at his school and market it to fesitvals and shit. He needs $1800 by January 1 and he's only raised a measly $166 (lol). I hate doing these things but this is the only thing in life he's serious about so I appreciate it if you all could at least watch the trailer and contribute $5 or less. OR MORE.

HERE'S THE KICKSTARTER PAGE

I run the film's Twitter and Facebook page lol:

"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.

"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

"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:
