#3 on the Pop Culture Countdown of Moments That Were/Are of No Significance To You- All Trainwrecks

Oh it's back. Like Backstreet back.

I now present to you, that life has calmed down some, the THIRD moment. I will have this all fleshed out before this weekend ends, this I promise to you.

#3 on the Pop Culture Countdown of Moments That Were/Are of No Significance To You-  All Trainwrecks 


Right? Right?!

Perhaps in the past we haven't had to endure- as a public- more trainwrecks than ever in history. I'm sure Cleopatra wasn't a trainwreck. Catherine the Great, Abraham Lincoln, Marilyn Monroe. But then...well, TV happened. And civilization ended:

Pop culture has been complete with trainwrecks to observe, in their tragic trajectories, should we list them all it'd take a hella (quoth Gwen) long time to do.

But let's have a gander, anyway!


The Courtney Love

The Lose Hope Now
The Scary
The Lost Causes


The Tragic

The Political

The I Just Wanted an Excuse to Post This Picture

Pete Doherty
ME
wait, what?
then, there are people you (meaning me) really wish were trainwrecks. such as:

Reformed Trainwrecks:


Oblivious:

We can all stand to learn something from these examples, and rest assured:  plenty more are in he making as I type.

In conclusion:  who is your favorite?

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"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:
