This Year in Review: PS Forget Time Magazine



This has been one strange year. In fact in many ways it has been a roller coaster of year. All that means is that there have been many highs of 2011, and there have also been many many lows where things just fall down to a deep unsatisfying level, and you wait with strong anticipation for the highs to return.

This is now New Year's Eve, and it is time for reflection on the last 12 months, and one can only wonder what 2012 will hold.

Some of the highlights of 2011:

1. Arab Uprisings: Most Famously Egypt, Tunisia, and of course Libya.
2. Ron Paul Supporters Dominate the Internet
3. The great Steve Jobs passed away.
4. Steve Jobs' postmortem Bio Book is a major hit.
5. Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester did a movie together.
6. Congress fell to a 9% approval rating.
7. Hannah Montana had a lousy finale.
8. Wendy's has a new cheesy cheddar burger.
9. Charlie Sheen charmed audiences with his one man show.
10.Casey Anthony murdered her daughter (or did she?)
11. Nancy Grace became the cheapest bitch on Earth.
12. Demi Lovato came out of rehab...but not for drugs (wtf?)
13. Amy Winehouse went to...not finishing that sentence.
14. Presidential debates became the best reality show on TV.
15. Herman Cain was caught harassing *Your Name Here _________.*
16. News Anchors keeps getting hotter and hotter.
17. Bin Laden died.
18. Time Magazine made their person of the year the protestor....how lame is that?

QATFYG:
What is your New Year's Resolution?

Who cares? The World is going to end in 2012, so make this next year fu*king count!

  1. Time Magazine needs to quit it with these horseshit picks and choose an actual person as person of the year.

"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:
