Bye Bye Summer Of 2015: This time of year always fills me with a certain sadness, though, honestly, how much can you miss the summer of Donald Trump? People think it is the end of warm weather and while that is certainly a part of the summer season, more important is children being away from school for two months . Look at two months this way: it is something like 0.25% of my life and 2% of a ten year olds. Translation, summer last forever for children but is a blip on ours and since many of us (me) are working stiffs, we more observe than participate in summer. But we observe well.
Death: Very sorry to hear about the death of Candida Royale ” an American producer and director of couples-oriented pornography, a sex educator, sex-positive feminist, and pornographic actress. She was a member of the XRCO and the AVN Halls of Fame.” It was as a porn star I knew him, an angel face and a great bod. She died of ovarian cancer at the age of 64.
Live: Tomorrow Madonna begins her 2015 tour, a lot is resting on it for her though I sure think it will be a killer, it sort of has to be.
Recorded: So I’ve been listening to Rebel Heart again, an album I consider her best since, wow, since Music. try and get the deluxe version with 25 tracks, it is a rarity: an album that improves with additional songs. Among them are at least five of her best songs this century
distinct and wondrous without being obvious or obnoxious
except for the title track the songs are on vacation
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
