He Didn’t Start The Fire

Billy Joel
Madison Square Garden
February 18th

This was only the 2nd time I’ve seen BJ.  The first was on his River of Dreams tour at the Capital Centre in 1993 (one of these two shows)

He played ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’ then

He didn’t last night

I’d consider that single omission a waste of an entire evening

JFGAY BLOWN AWAY WHAT ELSE DO I HAVE TO SAY?????

BUT it wasn’t, cause even if Billy Joel looks like an old mole, he’s still got it!!  And you can tell he’s really enjoying his monthly MSG residency.  He even is semi-sorta letting his fans dictate some his set – asking them to choose between two songs to play, by cheering their choice!  

AND he loves ‘Tush’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WHO DOESN’T???????????????

Setlist

Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go Out on Broadway) / Pressure / Say Goodbye to Hollywood / The Stranger / Vienna / Summer, Highland Falls / The Entertainer / The Downeaster Alexa / Zanzibar / Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song) / New York State Of Mind / Allentown / I’ve Been Working On The Railroad (Instrumental) / My Life / Sometimes a Fantasy / She’s Always a Woman / Don’t Ask Me Why / The River of Dreams (with ZZ Top ‘Tush’ interlude) / Scenes From an Italian Restaurant / Piano Man

May This Force Be With You

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Official Website | Trailers & Mo

My litmus test of dumb-fun movies goes like this – is the movie in question as dumb and as fun as the amazingly dumb-fun Charlie’s Angels 2: Full Throttle is/was?

Last up for the test – Lucy, which passed with flying colors, and dumb-funness!!!

Next up for the test – Kingsman: The Secret Service.  result?  PASS WITH BRITISH FLYING COLORS!!!!!!

Colin Firth is mad game.  So is Michael Caine (although he wasn’t really needed) and Mark Strong too (being subdued for once), and even Samuel L Jackson (who adds a lisp to his usual one note acting – WHAT A STRETCH!!!), and so is newcomer Taron Egerton (guess they couldn’t get Jack O’Connell)  

You should be game for it too!  It’s like dumb James Bond, but fun!! It’s like a dumber-funner Layer Cake, a less dumb/more fun Kick-Ass, and a less awesome/more actioned X-Men: First Class.  What do those last 3 flicks have in common?  They came from the British king of dumb-fun – Matthew Vaughn (who took over that role from Guy Ritchie)

But the REAL reason you should see this movie?  Mark Hamill is in it, and while he’s not particularly amazing in it, or even all that memorable (he mainly juss makes a bunch of grunting faces), he is in this movie, and when’s the last time you saw Mark Hamill and his face in ANY movie, on the big screen? 2001’s Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back??  Some things are best left unseen and unsaid

Well, Mark will walk skies again this winter as Luke Skywalker, and whether the new Star Wars is simply passable, good enough OR amazing (please lord, we need this to be amazing), you may not be ready to see him again, but you need to be ready

kings hamill

It’s been so long since he’s been on the big screen, and that you and/or I have cared to see him on a big screen, and it is in your best interest to see him on the big screen ONE time before Star Wars drops.  You need to refamiliarize yo’self with his face and acting.  You want the shock and awww shucks to happen now, and not when you’re trying to take in the new Star Wars, while trying not to jizz in yer pants(/get to be disappointed all over again:)

hamill kings

Kingsman – so much dumb fun, and hispecially some Mark Hamill.  Welcome back Mark!!!  The big screen misses you.  We all missed you!!!  And now we’re ready for you to be a force to reckon with, again 

Verdictgo: Jeepers MOS DEF Worth A Peepers

Kingsman firths it up today at a theater near jews

and until next thyme the balcony is clothed…
