Race For the Presidency: I wonder at what stage of the game it is time to worry about Donald Trump. I just can’t take him seriously. Stuff like, don’t let Muslims into the country, deport all illegal aliens or put them in work gangs, it is too hysterical. He is so crazy, he makes the rest of the extremists look normal. I don’t see how somebody who appeals solely to white males can win the Presidency. comparing it to the single worst moment in FDR’s Presidency doesn’t help.
Recorded: Tomas Doncker’s eagerly anticipated The Mess We Made is on Spotify as we speak. A throwback to the Tuesday jump! Otherwise, I gave The River another spin getting ready for tickets going on sale on Sunday.
Live: All Jingle Ball all the time this week, I’m telling you pop pickers. Can’t wait for the Weeknd!
Television: Speaking of Bruce, I caught his “The Ties That Bind” and can’t say I noted a single bastard revelation. Essentially, an hour long infomercial.
Movies: I like this Star Wars tit bit from NYT: “The film isn’t showing until Dec. 17 and plenty of tickets are left, but to more than 100 people in Hollywood, the vigil is part of the experience.”
More Trump: Trump could be the best thing that happened to the GOP, he forces them back to the center. Here is House Speaker Paul Ryan: “This is not conservatism,What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for and, more importantly, it’s not what this country stands for.”
Death: Holly Woodlawn, inspiration for Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side”, dies aged 69
