Death: Garry Marshall, the sitcom genius, movie director softcore Woody Allen, and more, with strings of hit movies and some of the biggest shows ever, “The Odd Couple”, “Happy Days”, “Mork And Mindy”, on and on: a mix of mush and make believe, American positivism and pan-world picket fence written up for a universal love post-60s supposition. Marshall was 81 years old.
What Ailes You: Word on the street is Gretchen Carlson is behind the removal of Aisles, and that’s true, to a degree, but surely it is the Murdoch’s wish, even Rupert before he had the reigns to his son, to get away from the man who rules the network sice its inception twenty years ago. With Aisles gone (soon), what next?
Recorded: An EP I missed last week, Abra’s electronic post-neo-soul Princess (Grade: B+) and Dreezy’s action packed bad girl in a bad mood thrilla debut album No Hard Feelings (Grade: A-), love em both very much.
Live: Panorama is on its way this weekend but my attention is already on Radiohead on Tuesday… I have to start listening to the setlist already, but who has the time for anything.
Sports: What gives with the Yankees, that is their third win in a row, two against the top of the league O’s, which leaves em in the same ol same ol, to buy? To sell? To hold? Unless their is a question of free agency next year, I’d hold DMC completely and build on that, otherwise, everything for sale.
GOP Convention: I don’t think it is the GOP Convention I hate as much as the entire circus whether Republican, Democrat, or National Socialist, it makes Leni Riefenstahl look like the model of modesty.

some big country and Americana names
