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.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i
