A Love Song for the Apocalypse: Carole Pope “This Is Not a Test” Official Video. Report by Glenn Belverio


Dear Shaded Viewers,

Loving this song and new video from my dear friend Carole Pope. She calls it “a feel-good song for the apocalypse.” I first heard it a few months ago on my Carole Pope Pandora station and Carole has just sent me this video yesterday. I reconnected with Carole about 10 years ago in Los Angeles when Kelly Cutrone and I attended Michael’s Schmidt’s birthday party in West Hollywood. Shortly after, Carole moved to NYC but then some years later it was back to LA. Does she love it or hate it? This entertaining Globe & Mail article will tell you all about it.
