Sports: I took my nephew to catch the Knicks versus Lebron and the Cavs last night. The Knicks lead all the way through the second half till the last two minutes, till Lebron turned it on in yet another dominating performance. The man is scary. As for the Knicks? At least they are entertaining this year. My nephew Jeff thinks they are on the way to 35 wins and my make the playoffs, I think more like 30 and won’t.

Paris: That’s scary stuff. The problem with Arabs in France (and Syrians trying to get into Europe), is the reaction in the West. People are calling for President Hollande’s head but they don’t know how to hit back for the Islamic extremists hits in retaliation for France in the Middle East. As for the US, or more specifically nyc, as another on my nephews tends to say: the terrorists only have to get it right once.

Recorded: I got my hands on the collector’s edition of Bob Dylan Bootleg Tapes Volume 12, and this is the missing piece to the puzzle. Much better than the deluxe, this is one of the most intene musical experiences I’ve ever had. All the rehearsal tapes? It is like being a fly on the wall. Any fan of 20th century rock and roll who can afford it must own it. Grade: A+

Live: Assuming I don’t, and I sure assume I don’t, get Adele tickets, I will be off to see young Al Pacino on Broadway on Tuesday. And that’s it till December 2nd’s Patrick and Vile fest at Webster Hall. Unless things change, of course.
