New "Be Useful" : The Game that Saves Lives



In many ways, information technology seems as if it is always trying to make life simpler. For example, 100 years ago we had to write letters back and forth to our friends who were in different villages. Now, we can just send Facebook messages in a fraction of a second. The internet is constantly allowing us to simplify and expand every single one of our actions.

Can it also help starving children?



Of course….and of course, you can too.

Free Rice has been around for years, but it is a cause that should never lay to rest. You can visit FreeRice.com, and there you can practice or show off your excellent skills in vocabulary and trivia, and at the same time you can contribute to improving child nutrition.

1. You play their games.
2. For each correct answer you give, you will have donated 10 grains of rice.

Free Rice is so impressive because it not only allows for improvement in areas of nutrition and child health, it also raises awareness for some of the most critical and sensitive causes. Furthermore, it allows children, teenagers, or anyone of any age demographic to have fun and improve some skills.

You can play a computer game that will keep children from starving.

Last night, in 10 minutes I donated 3,000 grains of rice.
How many can you donate in 10 minutes?

Can you top that?

"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.

"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:

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i
