Creepy Ass Cat Food Commercial

I understand that people have a connection with their pets. Heck, I consider my Chihuahua-Terrier one of my best friends. 

Did I mention he's almost as old as I am?

 But this commercial still manages to creep me out …

It could be because these women ramble on for over a minute about their pet food...

Or the unsettling three cord guitar riff playing in the background...

Or because they have absolutely nothing else to do besides sit around, stroke their cat, and have a one way conversation with the camera O.o

I literally have nothing else to do today... 

I mean the third woman is at least trying to paint when she begins describing her cat’s love for, "delectable gravy" and, "sauces," but she promptly gives this up as the conversation about her cat becomes more in depth. 

But I think the thing that scares me the most is the dead look in each of their eyes as they gaze hysterically at the camera... 

I will eat your children.

At one point Blondie even makes a comment that once she found out, “chicken-byproduct-meal” was the main ingredient in her cat’s food she, “didn’t want to put her bowl down anymore.” Holy Sh*t. This woman would rather her cat starve to death than eat chicken-byproduct. I’m sure the cat shares that opinion.  

I'm really not sure what the manufacturers were going for with this commercial or who they were trying to market to, but I think it's fair to say they failed. Unless, in fact, they were marketing to 40 + single women with one or more cats that haven't been laid in the past 3 years.

As if the actresses weren’t off putting enough the announcer come on and proclaims,

“All cat parents want their little girls to love their food.”

Not “pets,” not “cats,” but “little girls.” Little girls by the name of Sophie, Gabbie, and Maddie. Holy Christ. Perhaps we should have had our eggs frozen Ladies. This cannot possibly be a healthy way to spend our time...

"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.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
