Live: It belonged to a man in South America, Brazil to be specific, being his peace train all the way across the globe with a 100 minute 25 song plus retrospective of some of the greatest pop songs of the 20th century – Cat Stevens in Sao Paulo
Recorded: Lady Gaga’s week, we only lived in it and though 250K units moved is disappointing, my bet is she rebounds over the weeks with two hits, “Dope” and “Gypsy” (why she is pushing the R. Kelly track is a mystery).
National: President Obama’s mea culpa on the disastrous roll out of Obamacare was done with a democratic loaded gun to his head. The thing is this: like social security, the young are paying for the old and because of that, Obama had to repeal lame ass policies. He should have said “you can keep your policy if it isn’t a dog with fleas.”
Local: The cold blooded murder of 27-year-old Soroush Farazmand (guitarist for The Yellow Dogs), 28-year-old Arash Farazmand (drummer for The Yellow Dogs), 35-year-old Ali Eskandarian (friend of The Yellow Dogs and fellow musician) by a lunatic and loathsome coward former band member stands as a terrible and tragic story.
Sports: New York City has no teams worth mentioning any more. Well, maybe the Rangers.
