Cops!  Robbers!  Cowboys!  Injuns!  Texas!  Dust!  MUSTaches!!!!!!!!!  Captain Kirk with one particularly MUST must MUSTache!!  That crazy actor dude who was banging Sean Penn’s ex-wife playing crazy, and wily, and crazy wily!!  (I mean, can he play anything else?  would you want him to?)

hell-or-high-water

Jeff Bridges with a strange accent but he kinda disappears into that strange accent!!  His partner that sorta looks like my uncle!

It’s the David Mackenzie directed film from Taylor Sheridan‘s script – Hell or High Water!! 

There’s not much hell or water, but plenty of thirsting, for dollars, and doing things right, even if they have to be done in a wrong way!  

The plot is this – two guys rob banks and then re-pay outstanding debts to the very same banks they juss stole from with the money they stole!  It’s like robbing Peter to pay Paul Peter!!!  Woah!!!!  

And man, those Texas vistas are beautiful!

And this girl – Melanie Papalia – who played a hooker – has some nice vistas of her own!

One Nation Under (Yusuf) Islam

Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam 
Beacon Theatre
September 20th, 2016

We saw Cat return to form(/American soil, on his first official North American tour since 1976!) in Boston back in the winter of 2014, and it was an unforgettable night filled with much wisdom, soul, and incredible music.  We had only one want after that night – to see him again, mainly cause he didn’t play ‘Matthew & Son‘ (my favorite Cat song that isn’t ‘Lady D’Arbanville‘, which he hasn’t played since… 1976!)

Well, the opportunity arose and we seized it, and Mr Cat/Yusuf/Amazing came thru with his end of the bargain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡MATTHEW AND SON!!!!!!! bless you @yusufcatstevens

not only that – but he took a little dig at Tears For Fears while playing it, for their song ‘Mad World’ sounding quite like his ‘Matthew & Son’ – mouthing ‘I think it’s kind of funny, I think it’s kind of strange, yes I think it’s kind of funny, that this sounds the same!‘  YOU FCUKING GO CAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 2014 tour’s name was ‘Peace Train…Late Again’, as in, he’s still be riding that train, but that train and its conductor was a little past due at its American stations.  Well, this year’s tour is called ‘A Cat’s Attic: 50 Year Anniversary Acoustic Tour’, and with less explaining about his absence this time around, he played the true troubadour, taking us on his musical life story with his 60s catalog as its soundtrack.  The cuts he dropped were a bit deeper than when we saw him before, and luckily he didn’t bother with the tunes on his last album, which were in heavy rotation on that 2014 jaunt

In these uncertain times, it’s wonderful that we can take solace in a musical genius who promotes peace, love and understanding, and so happens to be a Muslim.  The (probably not very Muslim) crowd was with Cat/Yusuf from start to finish.  The world would be a better place if it was with Cat/Yusuf’s music and its message from here on out.  Never too late to board the peace train.  WOOT! WOOT!!

Here’s hoping the next tour is called ‘I Want To Be Your Man/Lady D’Arbanville’.  And if so, that tour – oh you tour – you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill

Arleenequin

did you know that the Batman advisory and Joker gal pal Harley Quinn never existed prior to the 90s animated TV series AND was inspired by a Harlequin dream sequence on the soap opera Days of Our Lives, played by the actress (Arleen Sorkin) who would eventually lend her voice to the character on the cartoon????

In Like Lynne

Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O.
Radio City Music Hall
September 18th, 2016

E.L. FCUKING O.!!!!!!! they bring no one down. not even BRUCE!!!

A video posted by Thigh Master (@thighmaster) on

Dude, they did NOT bring ANYONE down.  Not him or her, or even Bruce.  They brought everyone UP!!!  The only thing Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O. brought down was the HOUSE!!!  bi the gay, what IS E.L.O. without Jeff Lynne anywaysz? 

Man, what a fcuking show.  It was ELECTRIC!!  There were LIGHTS!!! And, woah, how rad was that ORCHESTRA!!!  Truth in advertising!  18 songs came and went in a cool 90 minutes, but I was ready for more!

They didn’t even tackle a lot of the hits on their greatest hits, which I used as my homework for the past few months, but you want to leave your fans wanting more, right??

Hard to say I was even a fan a few months ago (most of my Jeff Lynne love came from his work as a Traveling Wilbury), but after doing that homework, I was like – woah, I know ALL these songs, and they’re ALL amazing!

You probably don’t even think you’re a fan either, but what you don’t know is that you are.  You either grew up with this music or you’ve had it shoved into your ears over the past decade  

Remember this VW Beetle ad?  

Now you do, and now you remember how awesome that ad was, and how much of a fan you are of that song, which means you’re a fan of E.L.O.  They may not have sold a single VW bug without ‘Mr. Blue Sky’!!!

or what about the trailer for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind??? 

THAT WAS SUCH A FCUKING AWESOME TRAILER, remember?  And the trailer is kinda how I remember the movie, and it probably wouldn’t be as re-memorable without E.L.O.!!  YOU LOVE E.L.O.!!!

E.L.O.?  More like E.L.F(ucking).O.!!!!!!!!!!

Setlist – Tightrope / Evil Woman / Showdown / All Over the World / Livin’ Thing / When I Was a Boy / Rockaria! / 10538 Overture / Secret Messages / Can’t Get It Out of My Head / Shine a Little Love / Wild West Hero / Telephone Line / Turn to Stone / Sweet Talkin’ Woman / Don’t Bring Me Down / Mr. Blue Sky
