Been listening to this Missy Mazzoli opera Song from the Uproar and, man, it is very good. I say this as someone who does not normally just listen to opera music. Would recommend.
Morrissey on Baldwin.
Morrissey’s still playing that James Baldwin clip in his pre-show video and last night I could finally make out what Baldwin is saying:
"In the American continent they talk about the color problem. But the truth is that no white American is sure he’s white, and every American Negro is visibly no longer an African. And we know what happened and we know who had the whip. It was not my grandmother who raped anybody."
Tom Jones is opening for Morrissey at the LA show in May. Look at them.
This is happening tonight and I am using a positive mental attitude to will Tom Jones into coming out and singing backup on “Everyday Is Like Sunday”
Here’s a nice idea: Wake up at 6 AM on a Saturday and immediately watch Killer of Sheep. That way you’ll be good and depressed for the rest of the weekend.
