Re: Elvis & Imposters, New Orleans Jazzfest, April 28, 2016

'Tis a pity I shan't be going down this year. I'm not due to go back until 2018. Hope the weather is nice for that time period. The die-hard JF fans have a good time no matter what the weather is like though.

Vegas meet up

I'll be in Vegas 1\28 to 2\1. Would love to get together with anyone who wants to. We could go shoot some craps and send Elvis 10% of our winnings.

Re: Recently viewed films

If you are a crier, stay away from the movie Room . Based on a true life event where a kidnapped young woman has a kid while in captivity and brings the child up in one room for five years is very intense. The first half of the movie takes place in Room, as the kid, played by Jakob Trembley, calls t...

Re: New Gig Thread

Last night, I saw one of the best shows I have ever seen. Sufjan Stevens put on an intense, emo-laden show here in Pittsburgh at Heinz Hall. This is the home of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra so it was a high class show. The main part of the show was more a theatrical event. He did the newest alb...

I heard that The Flaming Lips are planning to bring Yoshima Battles the Pink Robots to Broadway. Is this true?

Re: Recently viewed films

Just to let Jack know that someone reads his reviews I am posting the two movies I saw this week. Woody Allen's Irrational Man is a nice little film dealing with philosophy. If you expect your typical Woody Allen film this may not be for you. The dialogue is first rate and the locations are beautifu...

Re: New Gig Thread

While the Rolling Stones played a show across the river, I was enjoying another rock and roll icon leading his jazz combo. Ginger Baker and his combo put on an excellent show. Ginger started the show by saying he just got out of intensive care a few weeks ago and he was not a hundred percent.

I wish Love and Mercy was better that it was. It is a good film, not great. The scenes showing the Pet Sounds era were well done

Re: Recently viewed films

Eddie Redmayne performance in Theory of Everything was magnificent and deserving of Best Actor. I believe it should win Best Picture. The film is more a love story between Jane and Steven then a film about Steven's work. Felicity Jones is a new actress, for me, to be on the lookout for.

Re: Recently viewed films

Just saw Birdman. It will get either Best Director or Best Movie. I am holding off on Best Actor, because I have not seen Theory of Everything or The Imitation Game.

PG Wodehouse

Growing up I read a collection of short stories by Mr. Wodehouse about a valet named Jeeves. They were very witty as I recall; It's been many years since I read them. Last week, I picked up from my public library Season 1 of the BBC TV show, Blandings starring Tim Spall and Jennifer Saunders. I like...

21st century Elvis

I have spent the better part of the weekend listening to Elvis' 21st century catalog. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed River in Reverse, National Ransom, Secret Profane & Sugarcane, Momofuku, The Delivery Man, Wise Up Ghost.

Re: New Gig Thread

Last night I saw history upon stage. Willie Nelson put on a great show. I'm not a huge fan, but he did many recognizable hits. No pyro, no electric instruments, no pageantry, just a man with a guitar, his sister on grand piano, a man on upright base, and a man with only a snare drum. The last half h...
