That Was The Week Of June 9th, 2014, That Was

Enduring Freedom

Enduring Freedom

International News: So 12 years after Operation Enduring Freedom, Iraq is back to Sunni Versus Shiite’s with the US on the same side as Iran for some weird reason and Afghanistan is gonna fall to the Taliban. The moral? Colonization doesn’t work.

Live: Sure Aretha was spectacular, but we knew that, we expected it… we hoped for it??? Anyway, that’s what she was.  But James Chance was a game changing master of the saxophone, a heart stopping brilliance, a lightning white master of skronking bedeviled funk.

Recorded: Three albums really did it for me: Colbie Caillat, the Shoe and Shinobi Ninja. Of the three, Colbie is a pure blast of modern pop, the Shoe awesome inspired melodic improvisation, and Shinobi Ninja terrific modern soul.

Sports: The dream is over: the New York Rangers were in every single game on the way to the Stanley Cup (except for one) but Lundquist couldn’t carry em alone.

The weather: Thanks to the powers that be, Governors Island was three days of gorgeous and rain ever since till Saturday.

Father’s Day: As a childless Unabombing of bad music loner, I hate Father’s Day. I realize I have no children and I realize when I am dead I won’t have my son’s there to bury me, the way I buried my own Dad, but why do I need a day to celebrate it?
