Thighs Wide Movies 2016

I’m never getting around to seeing Fences or Lion, so here’s…

Dwelve Into These Twelve
of 2016

1) Tower

tower-doc

A real life tragic event gets Waking Lifed, and it’s not only scary and horrific, but hopeful AND inspiring!

2) I Am Not Your Negro

What it’s like to be an African-American in America (when you’re white and have no clue what it’s like).  It raises all sorts of important questions that no one is really asking, or sadly, bothering to answer

3) Patriots Day

An event I didn’t plan on reliving ended up making me feel proud to be an American… in a time I’m ashamed to be an American

4) 20th Century Women

It’s like listening to The Talking Heads for the very first time – WOAH!

5) The Founder

Sometimes it takes some awful in humans to make greatness, and greasiness for us all!

6) The Light Between Oceans

light between oceans

Perhaps the year’s most overlooked movie that had ‘Oscar bait’ written all over it.  You no longer have to take the bait to something that no longer is baiting you, and it’s time for you to no longer overlook this film!

7) Bleed For This

bleed-for-this

if Miles Teller bleeds – I will come!

8) Embrace of the Serpent

I apparently never reviewed Serpent, but you need to Embrace this film – which puts the ‘lonely’ in ‘coLONELYialism’!

9) Streit’s: Matzo and the American Dream

streits matzo doc

All things must pass – even the Lower East Side’s last remaining matzah factory, and with it, a part of Jewish culture and identity in America :( 

10) Hell or High Water

hell-or-high-water-mustaches

Why choose when you can have BOTH hell AND high water!!!

11) Sully

Dude is mad fly!

12) Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made

raiders dudes

These guys lived out their childhood dreams, in childhood, and finished them in their adulthood!  Fedora hats off forever to these dudes!!

Does Anybody Want Some Magic Johnson?

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Madison Square Garden
February 15th

Does anybody want some Magic Johnson?  I do!  I do!

I want it, and anything from Mother’s Milk! And ALL of Blood Sugar Sex Magik!!

Is that so much to ask for, for my very first Red Hot Chili Peppers concert ever????

I mean, when I finally got around to seeing Pearl Jam last year, they pretty much played a setlist that pretty much perfectly suited what I pretty much REALLY needed and wanted to hear them play. I mean, I kinda left off with Pearl Jam back in the 90s, and didn’t know of anything they did since, but I’ve kept better tabs with the Red Hots over the years, as some of their songs were not only popular, and not only catchy, but downright good!!

And so I cannot complain hearing them rock ‘Dani California’ or ‘By The Way’, but they only dropped 3 songs from Blood Sugar Sex Magik???  And 5 songs from the new album?  OK, I didn’t do my homework, like I normally would, mainly cause I didn’t have time to, cause I got a last minute ticket, but c’mon man!  Old stuff!  Not new stuff!  I know new stuff was gonna happen, but it can’t make up a 1/3rd of your barely 100 minuted show.  Pearl Jam played for double the amount of time and played double the amount of songs, and so when PJ played stuff I didn’t know, it was fine, cause they played like 381283812 things I DID know!

Damn you Red Hots!  You sounded great (when I was hearing what I wanted to hear), but I think you owe it to yer old fans to play the old stuff

But it’s not their fault.  It’s all mine.  Why didn’t I see them on their Blood Sugar Sex Magik tour when it came to my area???  OK, I was 14, and about a year away from going to concerts all the time, but still!!!  How come I didn’t beg/force one of my parents to take me?  Or how come I didn’t decide to visit my 5-years older brother at Tulane a year before that, and see Pearl Jam AND the Smashing Pumpkins open for the Red Hots like he did!!??!?!?!??!  OMGGGgGgGgGgGG!!!  Lucky fcuking bastard.  More like, my lovely man

SetlistIntro Jam / Can’t Stop / Dani California / The Zephyr Song / Dark Necessities / The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie / Right on Time / Go Robot / Californication / Sick Love / Search and Destroy (Iggy and The Stooges cover) / The Getaway / Suck My Kiss / Under the Bridge / By the Way

EncoreGoodbye Angels / Give It Away

over the bridge and tunnelers, I drew some blood #RHCP

Track & Feel

Gangway Neighbors, 1936 – it’s a strong finish and from the looks of it, Grace Bradley, extreme left, is copping the event for her Three Cheers For Love team. The others, by lanes, are Louise Stanley (with team Florida Special), Wilma Francis, Louise Small, Ann Evers (at the line) and Jill Deen
