Recorded: Yesterday, the two most important albums were not on Spotify, Iris DeMent wasn’t streaming anywhere and Dre was on Apple Play. I am still getting a real handle on both of them but while DeMent deepens but the new Dre? -the first day, just the thrill of the new made it sound awesome, today? eh… it is like getting drunk, sleeping with a cute guy, and waking up next to Steve Tyler.
Live: Speaking of Iris, tomorrow at 3pm she has a free performance at Hearst Plaza and I am beyond thrilled at the prospect. When I saw her at City Winery a couple of years ago, she was great but a little boring. I expect no less tomorrow
Politics: Chuck Schumer will vote nay on the Iran Nuclear deal, and he better hope it goes through any way. Funnily enough the New York Post claimed if he votes yes to the nuclear deal with Iran he is a traitor to the US and Israel, and if he votes no to the deal, he is still a traitor because he knows the Prez has enough votes so he can appear tough when he secretly supports Obama…
New York Politics: From the New York Daily News: “We are taking matters into our own hands,” Cuomo told NY1 after bumping Mayor de Blasio aside in the handling of the lethal outbreak. “This has been going on for a number of days. Ten people have passed away, so I understand the anxiety. It is almost like a bad science-fiction movie.” Speaking of deaths, Mayor Bill deathwatch starts around about now.
Trump Watch: On Megyn Kelly of Fox News, “She’s not very tough and not very sharp,” Trump said during a phone interview on CNN. “I don’t respect her as a journalist.” Referring to Kelly’s questions during the debate, Trump said, “There was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.” I sure hope he gets the nomination.
Sports: After a 10 inning 2 – 1 to the Blue Jays, the Yanks need to get back to winning again, but when you have a team filled with potential bombers, the good news outweighs the bad news. The Mets on the other hand have just won seven in a row.
