These Days: Thursday, April 14th, 2016


Sports: Congrats to the Warriors on their most winning season in NBA, by beating the Grizzlies for a 73 – 9 season. Absolutely astounding, let’s hear it for Stephen Curry. ” Having long ago obliterated the record he already held for 3-pointers in a single season, he had sought 400 as a nice round number. The crowd went ecstatic when he reached the target early in the third quarter. He finished with 46 points, shooting 15 of 24 from the field.”

More Sports: Kobe Bryant scores 60 points in his farewell performance as a Laker. Kobe is the third leading scorer in NBA history, and I didn’t include  Hotel rooms.

Television: Al Jazeera America was shuttered on Tuesday. The news net launched in 2012 with the acquisition of Current TV, but suffered from low viewership and allegations of management bias against women and Israel. In a memo to staff yesterday, net president Kate O’Brian and CEO Al Antsey looked on the positive side. “Al Jazeera America has the most talented and diverse team any media organization could wish for.So, as we enter our final day, we would like to pass on our sincere thanks, appreciation, and respect for your amazing work, and for your commitment to those we cover,” said the execs. “We all know good journalism is critical. It ensures information is reliable, and can be trusted. Good journalism doesn’t mean opinion or spin. It is a responsibility which every media organization should carry with determination and resolve.We are proud to have done so since our first to our final moment on air.” -why on Earth didn’t they change their name? why should have just called themselves Death To Yankee Pigs and see how that worked. It was such a tone deaf decision (and also odd, why haven’t they sold it to someone and changed its name?) for what is an excellent news agency.

Live: Off to see the musical “Cagney” tonight and “American Psycho” on Saturday, and then 6 weeks of quietness before June and July explode.Gilmour was the middle class ponce we assumed he was on Tuesday night, still it had its moments for sure. Paul McCartney on sale next Monday. I haven’t seen him since 2013…

Synchronicity” In 2013 I missed Guns N Roses at Governors Ball to see Macca at Bacrclay, this years I am missing GNR because I am at Panorama.

Recorded: I have been listening to Merle Haggard’s The Peer Sessions to distractions, its clutch of songs of perfect for the fragile and depressed, “It Makes No Difference Now”. The late  Louisiana Governor Jimmie Davis co-wrote the lovely and aching “It Makes No Difference”. I’ve been trying to get to that “Fun In Acapulco” review for two weeks now.

Death: Actress Anne Jackson, who along with husband was part of the Broadway Power couple of the 60s, died at the age of 90.

New York: I would believe that the New York Post is just messing with Mayor Bill De Blasio, but once Preet Bharara has you in his sights, you’ve got problems. So Bill’s pay to play scandal may just be starting.
