These Days: Wednesday, June 8th. 2016


Theatre: I just pre-ordered the play off Amazon, to be released July 31st at midnight, because, yes folks, it is that time again. Time for Harry Potter to return from the dusty movies and books and take over the world again. People wonder why J.K. Rowling can’t leave her beloved characters alone, to live happily ever after. Me? I’m just happy she hasn’t left them alone, as Harry and co appear in theatre on the West End yesterday for the first preview. From New York Time’s article by Sarah Lyall: “The tantalizing question arises of what might or might not happen to the present if you try to tamper with the past. Albus Dumbledore himself appears, in a painting that speaks to us, as paintings do in Potter-world, followed by as good an explanation as you’ll ever hear of why we should not mistake a portrait for an actual person.

Recorded: The new Amy Klein album, Fire,  streaming on Consequence Of Sound (here) is big time, without being a shock, it is what we expected from her: a full blown rock and epic rock album. Marla Mase’s Miracles: Lost And Found, is its equal, a singular epic, orchestrated pop extravaganza that leaves her spoken word past behind her, with one major miracle after another. Otherwise, on to How Great Thou Art for Presley and Sign o’ The Times for Prince. The upcoming decision will be whether to review The Black Album when it was recorded or when it was released…

Live: Beyonce today, and it should be clear and cool. I got a ticket for The Roots Picnic, only the Saturday though I prefer (slightly) Sunday’s line up – Wu Tang Clan, David Byrne, not enough to actually go out on a Sunday.

The Road To The Presidency: Mr. Ryan said Mr. Trump’s criticism of the judge, Gonzalo P. Curiel of United States District Court, was “the textbook definition of a racist comment.” But Mr. Ryan also reiterated his support for Mr. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.“I disavow these comments — I regret those comments that he made,” Mr. Ryan said. “I think that should be absolutely disavowed. It’s absolutely unacceptable. But do I believe that Hillary Clinton is the answer? No, I do not.” That would be the Speaker Of The House Paul Ryan calling Trump’s remarks racist because, of course, that is exactly what it is when you claim a Judge should recuse himself simply because he is of a certain ethnic heritage.
