New Film to be Released in 'Titans' Franchise

At the end of the month, Warner Brothers Picture is set to release the next installment in the successful 'Titans' franchise, this time entitled Wrath of the Titans.

Yes, like all groups experiencing wrath, the Titans have been here before. The film continues the epic journey we began with Harry Hamlin's Perseus in 1981, as he did battle with Medusa and the Kraken (pictured below). In the interests of full disclosure, the reader must take note that I once owned a toy figurine of the Kraken with one or more broken appendages, so I have an affinity for defeated Krakens.

The franchise thereafter remained silent for 19 years, when the role was reprised by Denzel Washington in 2000's Remember the Titans. This installment is arguably the most lauded of the franchise, as the story line veers away from cosmic destruction in favor of themes of camaraderie and overcoming racial strife.

It is rumored that, through some behind-the-scenes fumbling, the new film will actually see a limited release in theaters instead of going direct-to-DVD as was recommended by most studio execs. Studies show that select groups who were shown an advanced preview of the film had results indistinguishable from the control group who were instead treated to John Carter.

"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:
