Brook White: Ruling the World? Or Youtube? Or Late Night?

are we having fun yet? ...
I missed out on the loop a lot in Edinboro. Do I regret this? Hell no. I wish I could have missed out on more to be perfectly honest with you! But Brook White deserves to be recognized for his effortless attempts to make the universe (not just Edinboro University!) laugh. And although I never got the chance to meet Brook and have only witnessed various going-ons via the magic of my safe place in cyberspace. 


Brook's first venture into the world of youtubable (is that a word? whatever it just happened) was College Life With Brook White. 


SEE IT FOR YOURSELF.


But now he's taken it upon himself to start his own variety show a la the Late Show or something of that nature. Oh?!?! Enter BROOK WHITE TONITE, which has a reach farther than a little area in Pennsylvania. Well it's the era of the internet....whatever I don't know. 




ENTER OUR AWKWARD FACEBOOK INTERVIEW


Brook:  We still doing this thing little Kemp?
Britt:  Of course we are. Want to do this via chat?
(s/n:  I'm lazy)
Brook:  Sureio!!!
Britt:  So explain yourself, first and foremost.
Brook:  Well, I'm a junior at Edinboro, and I like to make documentaries and shorts that will make people giggle...that's the goal at least. I am very bizarre and question most things I say after I think about it.
(s/n:  me too!)
Britt:  You seem like you succeed at it. From what I can deduce! I'm bizarre too, we should start a club. Anyway, explain your new project.


Brook:  Essentially, it will be my take on a late night show. It will be filled with inappropriate things, sketches, I've been keeping my other show College Life With Brook White going, but I feel that with this new show I can get a fresh start. Hopefully make something more people can enjoy. 


Britt:  Inappropriate things? College Life was a little behind my time at Edinboro, I was also a little in a coma at that school. (just a little, right)  Anyway, it will be available via Youtube, correct?


long silence


Britt:  You must have disappeared.
Brook:  Sorry I am here!
Britt:  It's all right! (NOT REALLY)
Brook:  It will be up on Youtube.
Britt:  Can I have a link?


Brook:  I was busy doing 3 things at once. But I am fully committed to this interview now!!!!!!!!
Britt:  Fully committed? What was that we had before? I TRUSTED you Brook.
Brook:  I can be trusted! D:
Britt:  Bah. Okay. So what can be expected on your show?
Brook:  You can expect fun, love, ghosts, hats, fun references to things, rapists, CATS, me in a onesy. I will do on location things; I will do on set things.
Britt:  I'm turned on a bit. What kind of late shows are you using as models? Johnny Carson, etc?
Brook:  I think Conan is kind of the model we use as reference, but we're trying to follow the basic patterns of all late night shows. open with a monologue, have an interview with someone. A musical act at the end...which will be me and Dabeedo.
Britt:  Dabeedo? Wut?

the way Lily Allen says it
Brook:  He's the one man band that plays sax.
Britt:  *thinking* HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT

Britt:  Sweet. So will your new show last longer than the duration of the school year?
Brook:  Yes. I would like to do it as long as people are watching.
Britt:  What are your professional aspirations in the realm of Brook White? Oh, of course they will watch.
Brook:  I think it would be cool to do something that becomes popular that I could perhaps build a career off of. I mean that would be great. I would love to do something where I can make a ton of people laugh from all over the place. That's what I would like to do. In reality I'm not expecting anything. But it's fun to think that I could do something like this on a bigger scale. I feel with this show I'm somewhat parodying late night shows, but I want it to just be this really silly and weird show that people can't take their eyes off of. That and I don't want it to rely too much on Edinboro so there won't be a lot of jokes directed to the campus or anything, I want it to stand on it's own as something fun.
Britt:  Well I definitely see a possibility for that. (I do) Well, what are 3 reasons people should watch your new show?
Brook:  1. I think it's going to be really unique and outlandish
2. I'm going to be in a onesy....and various other weird outfits
3. It's always going to be a FUN TIME!

Brook:  I just want to say that I hope everyone watches it, and enjoys it!

well thank you, Brook White, you cat lover. And yes, they certainly will! I think. I HOPE. I pray. I wish. etc, verbs.

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

"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.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
