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...




AMELIA EARHART!


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!



LIFE WHY MUST YOU BE SO HARD

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!
- THE JAPANESE! 
- 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?
whateverrrrr

"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:
