Television: How shocking, Sesame Street is going to a pay to view network, HBO and I realize they thing well now they can produce 36 episodes a season instead of the skimpy 18 PBS can afford to pay em. That’s the good news (to a degree, there is the question of quality control) , now here is the bad news: Sesame Street taught generation after generation, regardless of race or class, and that is now over. Congratulations, you nitwits.
Recorded: A very good week for new music, FKA twigs, Atticus Ross, Melanie Martinez, Chinx, B.o.B. and, er Barbie… well Barbe isn’t that hot but otherwise…
Live: Still trying to decide whether to go to Kenny Chesney tomorrow… I probably will.
Movies: I got a ticket to Art Garfunkel and that lead me back to listening to “April Say You Will” and finally watching “The Graduate” for the 100th time. I love it up to the bit where Katherine Ross finds out.
POTUS: Tomorrow or the next day I will get round to reviewing (wait for it) Obama’s Spotify Playlist you hear me??? Sneak peak: “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” up first!!!
