After her Runaway Success with "Dear Love," Lauren Marsh Returns with a Single Full of Melancholic Nostalgia
"[It's] my way of saying thank you to the people who've been there for me, and while there may be some rough bumps along the way, things can always work out okay."
So says Lauren Marsh of her latest single, "Take Me With You (When You Go )." This songstress is one to watch. With her breakthrough single, "Dear Love," blowing up last year, she is currently launching her follow up, and it's an ode to a time gone by. With regards to her life so far, that's quite an ode to write. From the Jersey Shore through to NYC open mics, past collabs with Don McLean, Adam Duritz, Andy Grammer, Gavin DeGraw, and Howie Day, this girl has done a lot in the time given to her. This new offering maintains the quality of her work to date, and provides us with another ample serving of that which we know her best for. Heart.
At the core of the track is the ukulele, plucked persistently all the way through. The chord structure is simple enough, almost as if you're in the room with her as she is writing the song. It reflects a straightforward honesty, a no frills approach… at least to start. Once the song kicks in to high gear it overflows with melancholy and nostalgia, aching passionately for a past that has passed, unreclaimable, yet so easily and painfully within the reach of memory. The figure she sings to in her song, and toasts with a "here's to you", seems to be both one specific person, and everyone she ever knew at a point in her life. It speaks to the universality of looking at an old friend's picture and remembering every single happy memory with them, tainted by the knowledge that you can never see them in quite the same way again.

The classic He-Man meme video stands the test of time as an iconic example of queer-coded art.
In December of 2005, Brokeback Mountain shifted queer-coded cinema into the mainstream.
Prior to 2005, "New Queer Cinema"––a term coined by film scholar B. Ruby Rich in Sight & Sound to define the queer-themed independent film movement, which focused on rejecting heteronormativity and concentrated on LGBTQ protagonists––existed on the fringe of the film world. It's worth noting that while the movement primarily refers to the boom in independent LGBTQ films from 1992 onwards, queer cinema existed for many years prior, albeit without a proper name. But regardless of nomenclature, New Queer Cinema was typically designated for niche audiences, relegated to arthouse showings at best.
There's a big problem with the trailer for Morbius, Sony's upcoming Marvel outing that is definitely not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even though it has Michael Keaton reprising his role as Vulture (please let us keep our license, Disney!).
See if you can spot it.
MORBIUS - Teaser Trailer www.youtube.com
If you answered, "Sampling Beethoven's 'Für Elise' to line up with blue-tinted action shots is the absolute lowest effort, brain-dead attempt to signify 'gothic vampire movie' in the entire history of movie trailers," you're correct, but that's still not the biggest problem with Morbius. No, the biggest problem is that Morbius is played by Jared Leto.
