#6 on the Pop Culture Countdown of Moments That Were/Are of No Significance To You- When Kanye Talks

We're advancing! Aren't these just simply the most EXCITING times? Oh shut up. I know this countdown is the highlight of your life. Don't act like that's not true.

#6- When Kanye West Talks

Why? Because he's got a notorious rep for apparently not thinking before he blabbers. The first incident of this was just right after Katrina hit and devastated NOLA. On national television, with one awkward Mike Myers by his side, he announced that "George Bush hates black people." And granted, even though this was kind of a dumb moment, he did have a point because of the sociopolitical aspect of the Katrina response. However, it really wasn't the medium for that kind of message and it could have been just a LITTLE more articulate.

Then, this happened. <- He totally alpha-dogged TayTay (TM) on behalf of Beyonce at the MTV Awards. TayTay! The best part of this? Beyonce's reaction obviously. She just was like "really? REALLY?"


Lately we've had no embarrassing outbursts from Kanye. Because I like him as a musician, I hope these times are behind him. He is, however, dating a Kardashian. *scratches chin* HMMMMM

  1. I actually really enjoy the fact that he has no verbal filter. You always kind of wonder what random craziness is going to jump out of his mouth next. "Imma let you finish, but..."

"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
