Being a Mom on Mother's Day

It's fairly common knowledge in these parts I gave up my children when the government wanted to crack down on my toothpaste habit. And I was like, to the police officer that came to my front door, "DON'T YOU TOUCH LITTLE TYRA DON'T YOU PUT YOUR HANDS NEAR MAHOGANY" and began rending my garments, etc. 


Do I miss them? More than the rest of my teeth? Or other miscellaneous things? It's arguable. I've devoted my life to the artform of raising alpacas, and let me tell you, it's worked out marvelously.


My mom, truthfully though, is a wonderful and very strong woman. I've spent a lot of time with her in my life and I haven't seen her in several months. will see her shortly in the summer and she will come visit me once some business clears regarding the health of a family member. I really, really am looking forward to it. I miss seeing cheap dollar movies with my mom when I was growing up. that was our Sunday tradition. sort of tapered off when I entered high school. saw Moulin Rouge and a row of forgettable romantic comedies together. but they were good times, you know, then. 


much love to all the moms out there, especially two of my other favorites, Cara and Jess. MILFzzzzzzzzzz


question:  hottest mom ever? Heidi Klum? Isabella Rossilini? just kidding about the last one because I don't even know if she IS a mom.

"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:

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
