That Was The Week That Was: January 18th, 2016

Snow: The East Coast got pounded with over two feet of snow and left the entire New York City in a state of paralysis if not indeed complete hibernation. It was a strange three days, cut off from the world, and taken a little by surprise at the severity of the weather, New York was forced to take a long, deep, breath.

Live: Meanwhile, Bruce Springsteen postponed and who knows when or if we are getting a makegood… tickets keep going up for the remaining two gigs so I am in a major wait and see mode since I don’t plan on paying $300 for a behind the stage single in 400s..

Recorded: Back to Anderson Paak in anticipation of tonight’s gig. at SOBs, I am thoroughly excited over that one, I tell you buddy. Otherwise, a not terrible slew of releases, though I have found myself not listening to Savages as much as I thought it was.

Sports: Oh, happy day. The Broncos beat the Pats in a skin of their teeth, the Gods Of Football type win and the Panthers seriously dismantled the Cards, in a trouncing setting up Super Bowl.

David Bowie: Life moves so fast that the dead get passed on before we know what hit us. Glenn Frey died and I still keep hearing David Bowie singing “I’m trying to, I’m dying, too”.With his death he completely changed a good album into a great one. In a work of alchemy, he transformed “Blackstar” while we were still listening to it.
