These Days: Sunday, January 31st, 2016

Sammy a Bichon eats a dog snack that was on the table right after Gov. John Kasich signed a bill into law that establishes new regulations on the care and treatment of animals housed in large-scale establishments at the Capital Area Humane Society in Columbus, January 10, 2013. Sammy and her owner Barbara McKelvey came down from Wadsworth, Ohio for the signing of the bill. (Dispatch photo by Kyle Robertson__

New York Times Endorses: As the Republican nominee for President, Gov. John Kasich -what did they do, throw a dart? At least go with Jeb, who has the concept of the theory of the possibility of a chance of winning. I went looking for a picture of John looking like a normal human being and this is the best I got.

New York Times Endorses: As the Democratic nominee for President, Hillary Clinton, who adds none of the likability to all of the moral swampiness of her husband.

Live: Luckily I missed all the sturm and drang on the Amex presale for Kanye West at MSG on February 11th after Ticketmaster took down the presale information. I was caught napping.. So this is what we know: the presale didn’t happen, the gig is still on but it sure isn’t on Ticketmaster.

Recorded: It’s  Rihanna time, that and Songs Of Separation are in as heavy rotation as I have the time for. Meanwhile NPR First Run have a lotta stuff worth your while, I am up to the Elliott Smith soundtrack.

Movies: I went from “King Creole” to “The Intern”. The former is a very good 1958 New Orleans based Presley flicked based upon Harold Robbins’ “A Stone For Danny Fisher”. Harold Robbins was America’s most underestimated writer of all times, if he was writing today he’d be a god… The movie? “B+”. The latter is a Robert de Niro-Anne Hathaway vehicle, with Anne almost ridiculously liable as the owner of a huge web tech company and Robert, the older gentleman Intern in question. Though the actual plot is the definition of much ado about nothing, talk about no dramatic structure (it’s a shell game, the big question is answered by Anne just saying “nah”… if she could do that why waste all our time?), but Anne is just so lvable you can’t help but like it. Grade: B
