Live: I remember when I hated Governors Ball the way I hated all music festivals, good if you’re a boy scout who didn’t mind camping out all night and good if you enjoyed seeing concerts from a stage further away than the last row at Metlife. BUT VIP tickets get you close and Governors Ball is an urban gig, reachable via subway. So here we go… today: Rudimental, Florence + The Machine and Drake are the highlights.
Recorded: After a couple of days I am tiring of Florence + The Machine, though the live show might change that, meanwhile the Gospel mood rockers Algiers continue to excite.
News: The Chinese broke into the White House computer and stole the information of four million Federal employees. As some guy on Facebook note: I don’t know what’s scarier, the Chinese having all that information or four million people being on the Federal payroll.
Movies: The Brian WIlson bio pic opens today, half Brian recording “Pet Sounds”, half Brian under the hated Dr. Lundy, I haven’t seen it but on a personal level I would guess I’d rather see the “Pet Sound” Brian for two hours, I hear the scene of Brian creating “Good Vibrations” is tremendous.
Sex: “A 17-year-old Williamstown boy told police he blackmailed his mother into having sex with him on Wednesday afternoon” -I hope we get the facts on this story, I would love to know what he had on his Mom.
