Twitter Educates: Yes, Titanic Actually Happened.


It's been over 100 years since the Titanic sank in the cold waters of the North Atlantic, yet within that 100 years, it has gone from a major historical tragedy to just the title of a film by James Cameron (and possibly another starring Catherine Zeta-Jones).

The News Feed reveals this:
"For all the history buffs reading this, the next couple of sentences may be too painful to contemplate. A couple of the tweets from the uninformed read, "Nobody told me titanic was real? How am I just finding this out?" Another tweet read, "Guys, the Titanic was real! #mindblown."

Yes, the Titanic was real. Unless the conspiracy theorists want to tackle this one too. For example, we have people that say we never landed on the moon, perhaps we will have people that say the Titanic never sank and all the images of the ship at the bottom of the sea are destroyed Hollywood props from the film "The Unsinkable Molly Brown." Crazier things have happened. People even deny the Holocaust. #Mindblown.

Questions and Thoughts for You Guys:
Will the Titanic one day become a conspiracy theory?
What is your favorite conspiracy theory? (Mine is the moon landing)
Will people forget other major historical events as time goes by, like World War 1 for example?
You be the judge.

"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.

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

"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:
