Come On, Get Happy!: A Rare Sunday Post.

Hi gang!

As a habit, I don't try to update the website that often. Mostly because I'm busy and mostly because, well, that's pretty much it. I'm busy.

HOWEVER, I needed some forum or another to share with you my latest attempt at a nonstop-happy playlist.

In the past when I've experienced bouts of sadness, I've been all about that sulking and that brooding and that sitting under pictures of Morrissey during the Full Moon humming Joy Division songs and writing poetry that they could probably put on bumper stickers and sell to goth tweens. And don't get me wrong, I had my brooding/Beach House time. But I embraced a new perspective this time, which is ... choosing things that were happy to indulge myself in.

Now I still have a lot to add here (Beach Boys obvs) but it's about five hours of blissful noise. It's good for working out or just working in general, I might add.

Here is the playlist in its emerging glory. I can't embed content anymore, which is lame. :/

Have a great Sunday,

"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!
