The SHO series “Action”— a documentary-series about the effects of legalization of sports betting - was riveting. The makers of the show did an excellent job of letting people hang themselves with their own words and leaving the camera on them just a little too long to capture real reactions.
You could skip tracks on an 8 track, you just never really knew which track you were going to skip to and where it would be in the song.
Hell yes. Great album. The title track and “Let’s Take A Vacation” are among the best songs of the year.
Absolutely love Th Wild Feathers album this year— I saw them live at Ohana Fest and they killlllllled it, as they kids say. If you consider Eagles country-is stuff to be capital C Country, then sure they’re country. Americana is a better label for them.
And I know y’all are wildly curious. Here’s the definitive rankings of the festival I went to this year:
Largely thanks to the Live Nation Festival Passport, I went to 13 festivals this year.
I saw the Byrne show at Austin City Limits-- even in the broad daylight, it was a fantastic show. Probably the best thing I saw at ACL.
Writers don’t generally write the headlines I knowwwwwwwww but: That’s not an anti-Spotify clause, it’s an pro-artist, anti-how-labels-usually-do-business clause. It’s more a pro-Spotify clause, as she (and artists) stand to make more if Spotify continues to do well and their shares in crease in value.
“Wait! They don’t love you like I love you.” Still chilling, all these years later.
How does this piece not have a link to the classic opinion piece from the mothership “Why No One Want Make Hulk 2?” by Hulk https://entertainment.theonion.com/why-no-one-want-make-hulk-2-1819584105
I wonder if it really would be so simple for someone in Phillip’s position to be like “eh, I’m not a spy anymore. Let me just chill here in America and learn to line dance.” I would think something like that would earn him a Nina-esqe trip back to the Motherland.
Was just scrolling down here to say the same thing.
Color me disappointed that there’s no HomerEatingPotatoChipsInSpace.gif in this article
The doc this is based on —“The Man Who Would Be Polka King”— is really worth tracking down. The fashions on display, oh my word.
YES, love this song and this performance.
M.I.A. - “Born Free” on Letterman.
Al Green killing’ “Here I Am” on Soul Train in 1974. Literally doing a better performance with one arm in a sling than most performers can do with all their abilities.
The key to “why not all the time?” lies in NYC’s finances at the time and all the overtime it would take to do that.
Glad to see I as not the only music geek who was like “ummmm, no. This was not on the radio.” But, true enough, maybe college radio.
Agreed on the confusing time jumps for non-readers. My wife has read the books numerous times, I’m watching it without having read a word. Every episode I have pause a few times and ask her what the hell is going on.
