These Days: Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

johnolivertweet-619-386

The Race For The Presidency: John Oliver’s evisceration of Donald Trump on Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight” might not be his finest moment, for one thing even at its cleverest it is self evident, and for another, it won’t reach the audience it needs to, who wouldn’t care even if it did, but once you’ve said that you’ve said everything. Trump is surreally indifferent to the facts. He will say anything to anyone at any time, My gut is Clinton will destroy him in a debate. Incidentally, Oliver got payback for Trump calling out Jon Stewart for changing his name from Liebowitz. Apparently, Trump’s original name was Drumpf…

Recordings: I find the coolness towards the new Kanye West album bewildering. Listening to it as I write this, TSOP is a flawed masterpiece, its flaws are two fold: it lacks focus (the original version was very focussed, the additional tracks diffuse it), and the lyrics are sometimes simply horrible. John Oliver’s West dis “A bored sociopath with a finger-free anus,” is vaguely amusing but completely irrelevant.

Live: So it is Tuesday and I am still thinking of the Who at MSG on Thursday… if this is the last time around… but is it? If it was Friday, well maybe.

Broadway: Out of Towners are getting sick of Broadway and I don’t blame em. I miss the strip clubs and the drug dealers…

Sports: Headline of the day?  “Philye: Phil Jackson’s tweets on Stephen Curry make Knicks coach look more like Kanye West”

    Clinton will, indeed, destroy in a conventional debate. But it won’t matter because Trump will not be playing to her or any of the rules makers. And Oliver didn’t do him any harm, really. Actually, Herr Trumpf sounds gut. Trumpf ist der Sieg, so to speak. You need a political correspondent during the great national fail.
