Let The Games Begin: So everything is in a place, we trust these two nominees to do absolutely nothing we want them to it, one is a wonk whose interest is purely in the business of politics and the other is a loud mouth in over its head. My bet is the former will win but step back, wait, and see.
Television: The Voice, as you know Miley Cyrus has replaced Gwen Stefani and as you don’t know “Bette Midler, along with Charlie Puth, Sammy Hagar and Joan Jett, has signed as mentor for season 11 of NBC’s The Voice. The singing competition returns Monday, September 19, after a special preview episode Sunday, August 21 at 10:30p following the closing ceremony of the Summer Olympics.”
Live: A closer look at the Bryan Ferry setlist begs an swer as to why is he going in so deep and yet not touching his underrated masterpiece Mamouna. It heats up as it moves on, but I’ve had some really good gigs lately and I am due a disaster… Meanwhile, don’t miss Sia at Barclay’s on October 25th.
Recorded: Finally, a new album. That DJ Khaled is the Avicii of hip hop since you asked (Grade: B-) and on the singles front, the Anderson Paak featured new Mac Miller is surprisingly good (Grade: B+)
Business: Is it time to invest in Spotify (once you can, of course). Undoubtedly, the market is gonna break between Spotify and Apple Music. The fear is, one dies and it is gonna be Spotify, but my bet is, more likely is, if it folds, it folds into Apple Music in a coupla years, the stock will explode, if it doesn’t the stock should steadily grow.
