News: The tough thing about 2015 in nyc is as much perception as anything else, from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep, all you can feel is pressure from all sides. Will they end gun control? Will you have a punch up on the subway? The prices are high for everything except dollar pizza, even Subway quietly bounced their prices by 20% and from your cable bill to your groceries honesty means getting away with as much as you possibly can. Which is the reason for this, of 120 grocery stores in the city, 70% put the wrong weight on food purchases thereby overcharging you. Wholefood -the most expensive is the most egregious and are about to get fined.
Live: Mike Posner at Rough Trade should do it, with a terrific new EP in pocket this is a first sighting. Meanwhile, Rhett Miller at City Winery, and MHOW hosts Leon Bridges.
Recorded: The new Tyga just dropped and it lives up to your every expectation.
Rock Writing: I was ready to go after the overestimation of Kacey Musgraves but at 78% approval rate it isn’t that off target. Meanwhile, I’ve been thinking again about a post about the two biggest music websites, Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, but I don;’t have the time for the research to really nail them.
Sports: Both Yanks and Mets lost, for Mets that’s 6 in a row, for the Yanks 3 and to make matters worse? Tampa Bay won which makes the Yanks 2 games back
