That Was The Week That Was: February 22nd, 2016

Oscar Win: My choice, Anthony, didn’t win it, but at least Lady Gaga didn’t win Best Song either. “Writing On The Wall” is a fine song, and despite Sam Smith, looking dapper indeed, gave a bad performance (as I’ve noted many times, he is terrible live), swinging back and forth, like a five year old reading the pledge of allegiance, I am not displaced.

More Oscars: Lady Gaga was unwatchable performing an atrocious song.

More More Oscars:Happy now, Leo?  Oh one more thing, kudos to Chris Rock for walking through the minefield of racial big bang boom, to make at least one excellent point: why were the 1960s Oscars with no blacks represented not protested? Because black black people were busy protesting real things.

Live: Benjamin Clementine killed it at Mercury Lounge, and I did a good back to back: The Stone Roses on June 30th, Paul Simon on July 1st. And as for this week, still prevaricating over the Who on Thursday.

Reading: Bob Mehr’s The Replacements biography is out March 1st, I’m surprised we haven’t had one before. Also, Barney Hoskyns’ ode to Woodstock “Small Town Talk” is out March 8th. I am pushing through the Bruce bio without too much joy. Did nothing interesting really happen?

Race For The Presidency: “Well, just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with CNN. “I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists.” This guy baffles me.
