Top Ten Reasons to Get Excited for the Olympic: #9 The Cuban Black Team



Top Ten Reasons to Get Excited for the Olympic: #9 The Cuban Black Team
As the Olympics approach, many people have ideas in their minds of certain Olympic teams. For example, the Greeks always give a prideful walk-off into the arena. The Russians are intense and monstrous. The Romanians are starving Gymnasts. The Americans are prideful. The Chinese have no choice to win or they get the belt, but one of the single most entertaining countries in the Olympics to watch is the Cuban Team.

This is the time of the decade when Cuban athletes step away from their Communist Island and pretend to make friends with the world for at least one month.
The Cuban team usually presents hundreds of competitors for the Olympic Games. They are always cheated by the refs, and they are also always black. 

What the fuck does that mean?

Yes, the Cuban team is always made of black people, and usually they compete in martial arts where they beat people up.Such as the famous 2008 Incident regarding Angel Matos, a former Olympic Gold Medalist, who decided that he was not only going to beat up his opponent in Taekwondo, but also a referee. 
Well, let’s see if that doesn’t get you a lifetime ban Matos. 

 Anyway, this year’s Olympics should prove to have a very strong presence from the Cuban team…and who knows? 

Questions for You:
Did you think I was serious when I said that Cuban athletes are only black?
I mean, come on…that’s a joke.
At least 4% of the team is miscellaneous.

"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
