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...

Welcome Veronica. I suppose that Elvis does not get out to Minnesota much.

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...

Re: Recently viewed films

I do agree that 'Boyhood' is a great movie. No deaths, no on-screen physical altercations, just good characters and raw emotions. At times, it did seem that the characters were thinking about and internalizing way too much. The aim of the movie is exploring life, so that is more my fault than the mo...

Vicious

I recently caught an episode of this British sitcom on PBS. I can't say it was particularly funny, but it is groundbreaking. Americans have the gay couple on Modern Family, but the gay couple on Vicious are flamboyant.

Re: books, books, books

Started to read Paul Stanley's Face The Music:A Life Exposed. It turns out the makeup was to hide a deformed ear and other insecurities Paul had. I'm only a few pages into it, but it is well written and very good so far.

Re: 2014 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival

The best vacations I have ever had are at this event. I have never done both weekends of the festival, but one is good enough. The food is also great I have posted pictures and videos on my FB page. My camera was stolen on the first evening so my pictures of Santana are lost to the wind. mark.newber...

download 100 songs from SXSW

Scroll halfway down this page to where it says AUSTIN 100 and download all the songs. Some of the tracks are good, some not so good.

Pono

It seems that every few years/months there comes on the scene a new musical technology that 'people in the know' say will change the industry. Neil Young is at the forefront of this particular movement. Is this a new format? How does it differ from MP3?

NPR - Wost Songs of All Time

I listened to this podcast on my way to work and I was laughing through it. The NPR group was analyzing and demolishing all the songs on the list. All the songs were hits and I disagreed with some of the comments, but, for the most part, the discussion is valid. http://www.npr.org/blogs/allsongs/201...

It was a fantastic season. I am looking forward to seeing Moriarity's character come back. The actor who plays him is very exciting to watch. I downloaded a reading of Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything by Joshua Foer. A large part of the book is about how to co...

Last night's opener was great. More humour then the other seasons. I was not too concerned with the how of Sherlock's supposed death. You know other people had to be involved in the cover-up and that there was trickery. Benedict is a good actor. He was outstanding in Osage County and 12 Yrs A Slave ...

I am making a note to see them. I hope they are not playing at the same time of Clapton or Plant.
