Live: When Mary Rudzis was a wee babes in arm we covered the Warped tour religiously, and before she was born, when it was at Randall’s Island on a Saturday afternoon, I’d visit it myself every year. Now, the kid is too old and it is at PNC Banks Art Center -so, you know.Plus, Kosha Dillz is the real deal for sure, the trilingual rapper rocker is a goodie but… he hasn’t released a new album in two years.
Recorded: I swear I’ve learnt nothing much from Spotify’s Playlist but the Apple Music Hip Hop A List is excellent and I have it on very loud.Skrillex’s “Burial” has been on Spotify for weeks but I completely missed it till Apple Music pointed it out.
Weather: We are having a heatwave…
My Novel: Two thirds of the way through the first chapter and deep in thought about the third third of the first chapter before I start writing it sometime this afternoon.
Movies: Antman was OK nothing great, I’ve heard good things about “Trainwreck” but am still in wait and see mode.
News: White supremacists with Confederate flags chant “white power” and display Nazi salutes at the South Carolina Statehouse on Saturday. This is exactly what freedom of speech means:
simultaneously self-effacing and egomaniacs
essentially a disco remix of “Rocket Man” featuring one of the the UK’s biggest stars…
“I literally really need you to jump up and down”
Friday night might kill us but Thursday evening is a blast
it just isn’t the triumph she needed after six years
an impressive sonic ride.
a high-spirited Post Pandemic anthem
a memorable band who were never better than here
almost Pink Floyd-esque
