Amelia Earhart: Bringing New Meaning To "Airhead"

So Al's post about Ainsley Earhardt continues to be ravingly popular. Good for Al and the bitch with a great name. However, I, in my blinding stupidity, always misread it as...


and then I think "why is it so popular?" DUHHHH. Amelia Earhart hasn't been a celebrity sensation since the 1930s. and we all know the 1930s were so long ago.

so very long ago!


my best friend's great-great-uncle invented the folding chair. cool huh? shut up. anyway, because of this invention, my best friend's family has an autographed photo of AMELIA. yup! my great great grandfather invented the Kemp Shredder. google that shit. I would be the heir to something if so many people hadn't been injured by it.

this is it.  yeah don't hate.

so! Amelia Earhart gained her fame for being one brave lady aviator, way back in the day. like she was crossing all over all kinds of bodies of water.  this was when that was a big deal. do aviators get a lot of recognition these days? I DON'T THINK SO. by the way, I was at a Country Fair recently and some old man called me "Amelia Earhart." I was like "THANKS THAT'S ONE OF THE BETTER THINGS I'VE BEEN CALLED!"

Then, she disappeared. Did she crash? Well probably. Was she abducted by aliens? THAT I could not tell you. But a multitude of theories exist about her disappearance:

- Nazis!
- she got stuck on an island and lived there for a while!
- she died!

supposedly the longtime mystery was solved by modern science (think CSI) recently. as in she just probably crashed, lived for a while, and then died. and if you think about it there's everyone's life. "lived a while and died." 

a few years ago, Hilary Swank played Amelia in a film. Of course Hilary was the natural choice to play her, as in SHE DIES. 

"hey everyone, they're making a film about Terri Schiavo! GUESS WHO IS PLAYING TERRI!"- #mean #terrischiavojokesarentfunny #godhelpme #helliswarmatleast

question:  what do you think happened to Amelia?
would you ever like to take flying lessons?
have you taken flying lessons?
why are Nazis blamed for everything?
Hitler really didn't flee to Argentina after WWII, right?

"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

"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.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
