Comment: YESSSSSSSSS…. the long holiday is over and everyone, except for Carson Daly for some obscure reason, is back at work for 2016. I was thinking of making Cage The Elephant m choice of the weak, just to annoy everyone, but my heart wasn’t in it. Various members of “The Hateful Eight” are all over the talk shows, and I’ve had a crush on Jennifer Jason Leigh since she was in “Fast Times At Ridgemont High”, so maybe but Billy Joel is spending the rest of his life performing a concert a month at MSG so let’s give it to him.
