Some Secrets About Ireland

It is no secret that soon the day of the Irish will be upon us, but what has Ireland really meant in terms of contributions to mankind?

In fairness, the country has suffered greatly in its attempts to attain greatness. The Irish people have been oppressed by all of the great conquerors throughout history: The British, The English, Great Britain, The United Kingdom and Wales.

One could hardly blame the Irish for being sluggish in that regard, after such flagrant abuse by tyrannical overloads. I mean, they only got toilets in Ireland in 1995, and they were taken away the day after, when Sinead O'Connor tore up a picture of Carol O'Connor on TV.

Otherwise, it's true that the Irish have always been model Catholics, drinking and carousing, and then confessing it all before having loads of children called Brendans and Bridgets. Even many modern prayers are structured in the Irish fashion: O'merciful, O'loving, O'sweet Virgin Mary!

But remember, not everything you read about Ireland is true. For instance, were you aware that leprechauns aren't actually short? Bill O'Reilly, for one, is almost six feet tall, and the Lucky Charms guy is deceptively sized to fit your screen. He can actually slam dunk a shamrock through a blarney stone and catch some decent hang time before his descent.

Yeah, maybe the mystique about Ireland is overblown, but one thing is true for certain: Ireland is one of the best places as far as helping U.S. corporations skirt their income taxes, and that's something I support wholeheartedly. O Ireland, Rod Blagojevich of nations, we salute thee in this week that is your feast.

"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:
