Maria Sharapova: Wins Silver at the Olympic Finals.


Another Women’s Gold Medal Tennis Match has come and bit the dust. The Olympic Finals are much like the grand slams of professional tennis, except they have so much more national pride….meaning that most of the viewers are actually watching Tennis for a change.

 (Take a look at these photos provided by London2012.com . I don’t know who took these, but I am pretty sure they photographed them with a potato.) 


Serena Williams took Gold: Who the Fuck Cares? 
 Maria Sharapova took Silver This was really beating me up. I frequently state that I am the world’s largest Maria Sharapova fan, not in size…just in the size of my heart! Bam, suck that Williams! Anyway, on a serious note, I was really hoping for Maria to win her first Gold Medal at the Olympics. In the famous words of Will Ferrell “There is nothing wrong with silver,” but fuck that noise, I wanted my Maria to win Gold. Instead, that boring tater salad Serena Williams took gold. That’s the kryptonite of my Olympics.


In other news: hailing from the nation of Belarus, Victoria Azarenka took Bronze. That has to give some hope and glory to the tiny Eastern European nation. As of now Belarus has only 5 medals, and only one gold….so congrats to Victoria for the making some noise for Belarus, and congrats to Maria for gaining silver, and THAT’S IT!

Questions for You: 
Seriously, who the fuck took these photos?
Azarenka looks the best.

"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
