Live: there must be some reason there is nothing to do today, with the possible exception of the Soft Parade, the great Doors cover band, at BB Kings. Meanwhile, the big rumor of the moment is Pearl Jam are performing at this year’s “Global Citizen’s Festival” on September 26th. This will be my third year, so far I’ve seen (among others) Stevie Wonder and No Doubt each perform great sets. Finally, P-Funk on Governors Island.
Recorded: Heavy duty Doors day, Waiting For The Sun is even better than I remembered, though I don’t see how that is possible. SUmmer will be almost gone soon enough. Meanwhile, Miguel is in very heavy rotation.
Writing: Finished the roadie section of the first chapter (of course, not the edit) and doubled back onto Mick. I think somebody is going to a funeral today…
News: Al D’Amato is getting his gumba’s Cuomo and de Blasio, to break bed over a spaghetti and meetballs lunch and make friends. That’ll work.
Movies: So I was watching “Terminator: Genysis” on my fave website when it stopped, I rebooted and it went from English language to Spanish. The good news is the storyline remained gibberish.
Sports: Fuck Phil Jackson, with $60M to spend in free agency he failed to offer big guy former Piston Greg Monroe, who can play center or power forward, the maximum and lost him to Milwaukee. Why? You got me. But watching Jackson in action is brutal in 2015.
an old school New York feel
oedipal vulnerable and blue collar visceral
An emotional song with Miya’s acrobatic and vulnerable vocals
