Nov 29 The Elliott Smith’s Mystery: Thinking Again About The Fight Leading to The Tragedy
He stabbed himself in the chest while arguing with her, according to a neighbor she’d stormed out of the house briefly after a loud screaming match, but then she turned around and went inside and found Elliott all bleeding. Did she drive him to the hospital? I want to think I remember it that way.

Nov 29 Frank Ocean’s New Song “Memrise” Reviewed (Stream Here)
We’ve heard that Frank has been stymied by ongoing homophobia that has caused the hip hop community not to use one of the great sound guys in modern pop, and after claiming he was gonna quit the biz, Ocean changed his mind and offered up this new piece of music, a somewhat awesome piece of wobbly bass stuff along with a spoken word piece

A nosebleed for $72 and a quick check out of Spotify hater Jason Aldean dirt road thing watcha and sexually ambiguous Kenny Chesney for whom I heard a terrific rumour where he is transgendered which probably isn’t true but would be awful cool if it was.

Nov 29 The A+ List: 11-29-14
Wolf isn’t howling, he sounds like the whistle on a train. The beat is a monotonic wheels on rails going on and on and on, it doesn’t move forward, it moves in place and Wolf is like he is observing, part of the trip, for a moment, part of the larger world surrounding the train.

Nov 29 10 Songs: Saturday, November 29th, 2014
A child beater and a Nazi collaborator and they are still ten times better than most of our rock stars! Of course, the second half of that isn’t really true and maybe the first half will be revealed to be inaccurate soon. The thing is, just putting the voices to the side, folks don’t have this much star power any more – B+

Nov 28 “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1″ Reviewed
I don’t expect a sci fi dystopia to have much reality as such, but I do expect it to have an internal reality and this has none, hell “The Giver” was better. No dialogue, no action, no beauty, so surprises (except in the enormous, plot driven mistakes being made), Vivian Leigh is doing cartwheels.

Nov 28 Hear, My Friends: JJ McCabe’s Five Songs
You may remember my friend JJ McCabe from last year’s JJ McCabe And Fallen Angel power pop masterstroke Presenting. Surely the best of the genre (just give another listen to the horns on “Gimme More” and the guitar on “Uuu”) in 2013 and well worth checking out, so I guess the two Beatles tracks aren’t a shocker at all on the . Ice JJ Fish on the other hand…

Nov 28 Watch And Play With Coldplay’s New Interactive Video For ‘Ink’
I tried once, but it was rather dull, I am not a video-adventure-game person, but this guy running after his lost love wasn’t the most exciting thing I have seen, it was cute like a Disney cartoon can be cute, and may be I am too old for this?

Taylor Swift At Prudential Center, Wednesday, March 27th, 2013, Reviewed

"We have a lot in common, you and I", Taylor Swift claimed before launching into"Mean" on her banjo and following it with "Stay Stay Stay". Perhaps we do, perhaps loving Taylor is an ageless grace in which the daydreamers of the world, and especially the younger female members, join her in a land of love and denial, jealousy, desire and deliverance. Welcome to a Taylor Swift concert.

Pink At Madison Square Garden, Friday, March 22nd, 2013, Reviewed

Pink floats through the air like a bat out of hell,  strapped to a harness and using technology first seen ten blocks uptown at the Foxwoods in  "Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark", Pink's The Truth About Love concert at MSG Friday night reached its zenith. Most rock stars, when they want to get up close and personal at an Arena gig, climb on top a cherry picker with an acoustic guitar and meet and greet the cheap seats. Justin Beiber's been doing it every night for six months. But the ever athletic Pink, who had already performed on the trapeze in a physical endurance of a set, took it to a whole other level. Singing "So What", often upside down, Pink was a heart stopping sight swooping from the rafters to right next to you and the audience gasped in amazement.
