Top 10 Reasons to Get Excited for the 2012 Olympics : #10 Nastia Liukin Commentary


Top 10 Reasons to Get Excited for the 2012 Olympics : #10 Nastia Liukin Commentary 

Hello, and welcome to the Top 10 Reasons to Get Excited for the 2012 Olympics…Yes, this is just as important as it sounds.It turns out that Nastia Liukin did not make the Olympic team for a second time. ESPN reports that during her qualifier, the 2008 All Around Gymnastics Gold Medalist did nothing but fall flat. 

This is a real shame considering I spent the entire 2008 Olympics masturbating to Nastia Liukin….now before you judge me on that, I was a lot younger back then….

..........seriously…..

...........In other words, instead of participating as an athlete for this Olympics Nastia Liukin will serve as a supporter to the Girls’ gymnastics team and do some occasional commentary on the sport.
That’s cool with me, as long as I get my moments…I mean, her moments.
Fuck, I’m such a creep. 

Anyway, I guess Women’s Gymnastics is the preferred sport of creeps like me…..song young-looking, but still legal and all. Well, Nastia I wish you the best during your time at NYU this fall. I already have your address.

Questions for You:
What is your favorite Gymnastics event? Male or Female?
Are you even the smallest bit excited for the 2012 games?
And does the name Carly Patterson mean anything to you at all?

"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
