#5 on the Pop Culture Countdown of Moments That Were/Are of No Significance To You- Charlie Sheen's Apocalyptic Meltdown

Oh, hey. Did you think I got bored of this? Well I did not. Life happens and I'm easily tired/bored/lazyyyyyy.

So, we're halfway there. Hold my hand. Halfway there.

#6 on the Pop Culture Countdown of Moments That Were/Are of No Significance To You- Charlie Sheen's Apocalyptic Meltdown

Oh hell yes.


Charlie. Charlie Sheen. What. How? How could I not?

I was obsessed with this when it all went down; true story. I guess that's a little embarrassing and maybe shameful in retrospect but how could you not love watching this man go insane? Still to this day, I'm not sure the cultural relevance of what went down. He had the world and he just snapped. Bret Easton Ellis called it a reaction to American culture- I could see that- but Bret also is writing the screenplay for  Fifty Shades of Gray so it is what it is.

It was just so great to witness all the prostitutes and drugs go to Charlie's head. And he stood up to his awful television show and guess what? Charlie Sheen emerged the winner, even if we got bored of him rather fast, as we consumers do. He's on car commercials with hot Italian models and his hair's kind of weird and he's got a show on cable. Which I'm still not sure about, but....

#WINNING

question:  any other public meltdowns come to mind?

Meanwhile, Denise Richards...

"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
