San Bernardino: where Islamic Terrorism goes postal. People wonder why all these mass murders right now? This is murder as meme: Malcolm Gladwell: “We like to use words like contagiousness and infectiousness just to apply to the medical realm. But I assure you that after you read about what happened in Micronesia (where there was an outbreak of teenage suicide) you’ll be convinced that behavior can be transmitted from one person to another as easily as the flu or the measles can”
Recorded: As the week comes to an end (the music week I mean of course), Nadia Reid remains an absolute favorite of mine and Danzig is surprisingly good: a very clear cut rock and roll album by the former Misfit.
Live:Off to see Gloria Estefan on Broadway tonight, the face of Miami driven to the beat… in the 80s, I mean, of course. Listening to her today, the beats sound particularly strong.
Sports: Rangers lose to Islanders, Knicks beat the easily beaten Sixers. The Sixers are currently 19 – 1. As for Jets Vs Giants, I bet on the Jets, but I am thinking the Giants on Sunday.
Tickets: Got around to buying just about the last ticket for Los Lobos at City Winery on December 19th…
I was happier because I knew I was happy
a snapshot of big hits and high tides, mostly high tides.
There is just a lot to love
the sound seemed to erupt from every side of the room
still on top
“danceable music for the end of days”
contracts its world in Nashisms
let’s take what we are offered
It’s the music, stupid
