Live – On the eighth of a nine performance New York residency over the month of March, Bjork performed six songs from her new album of lost love and complicated feelings, took a break, and returned a brand new woman for the second set. It is called Catharsis… or art… or something.
Recorded – A pretty big week: Action Bronson, Laura Marling, Van Morrison, Courtney Bronson and two specifically excellent albums: the new Earl Sweatshirt and the Leo “Bud” Welch. I prefer Leo but listen to Earl more.
Sports – I bet against Kentucky and nearly won it all. You gotta hand it to these guys, they can win big or they can win small but always they can win. I bet they’d beat the Knicks.
Weather: March came in like a lion and left like a lion as the big chill makes a mockery of global warming. Meanwhile, it hit 62 degrees in Antarctica, weather we haven’t come close to this year. Uh oh.
Golden Slumbers – Zayn Malik commits commercial suicide, leaving 1D because he wants to have a normal life and believe me, he is gonna get his wishes.
The World: “Arab foreign ministers meeting in Egypt agreed a draft resolution on Thursday to form a unified military force, in a move aimed at countering growing regional security threats.”
