New Study Finds: Get Your Fucking Kids off of the Fucking Computer

A new study has found that your kids on are the computer too fucking much. I have not read any of the results, but they are staggering. Let us run down the ways.

First of all, if your kid is on the computer, they will print out a bunch of shit and waste too much paper. Additionally, they will tie up the phone line for hours on end. Furthermore, they will become meatheads, mongoloids and morons.

Additionally, kids have gotten ahold of iPhones, BlackBerries and Palm Pilots. They use these to digitally harass office employees and some other shit that is too stupid to research.

You know what kids ought to be playing? Tetris.

Tetris is a game created by some Commie bastard in the Soviet Union, and it rules. And you know what? You can't win at Tetris. It's like real life. You just work really hard and then you lose. Furthermore, there are no pedophiles.

Over the years, folks have touted computer and Internet innovation as having improved the lives of those who have been blessed with access to it. This is untrue. In reality, it has merely sucked away countless hours from those who would better spend them reading Shakey: Neil Young's Biography, and assassinated their attention span so that when they do, they won't be able to get through it.

Yes, instead, we are told that knowledge is more appropriately acquired through viral videos, to the point where CNN often posts them in lieu of articles. A generation schooled on this dreck may even find Bill Nye too tame to focus on.

Yes, I find it impossible to write with absolute seriousness, but the dominance of technology over our lives is becoming truly disconcerting. We are constantly on call with cell phone in hand, checking e-mail and refreshing, refreshing, refreshing something to make sure we haven't missed out. It kind of makes you long for the top hat, beard and the horse and buggy. You know, in the days before you'd have to put the orange triangle on it.

"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:
