Anyone listening to Jenny Hval? This Blood Bitch album is pretty great.

Yeah, I like it. It's probably her most accessible work. Started listening to her when Innocence Is Kinky was new and usually find a handful of great songs per album.

That Battle Is Over is my favorite song of hers.

I watched that 4 hour Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers documentary that's on Netflix last week. Really dug it and learned a ton about the band that I, as a casual fan, did not know.

Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize for literature. For reals.

They never tell who's been nominated.

The Swedes will have no idea what he's saying during his acceptance speech, and it'll have nothing to do with a language barrier.

Here is some information, please skip it if you hate reading posts from people who you hate reading posts from.

After living back in NYC for two years, I moved to Los Angeles for the 3rd time this past Spring. I was summoned back to LA by my employers, but, they did not have to twist my arm; I missed LA and was more than ready to return. The only downside was leaving family behind again, but, nothing is ever utopian, etc.

When asked by coworkers and friends if anything seemed to change in LA during the two years I was gone, I would first of all mention that I came back every other month for work, so, it's not like I was truly gone. But, I have noticed two things:

1 - Vape shops and the like are much more ubiquitous. I do not partake on any level but I see many more of them than ever before, at least near where I live and where I work.

2 - Uber/Lyft drivers. So many more of them on the road now than in 2015. No real opinion on this, just an observation.

I guess if I had to name one obvious negative change, it would be a little more micro. There's a specific canyon where I always liked to go hike or just sit and read/listen to music/think. It's also a spot where families come to visit with their young children, perhaps take them on a nice walk, show them nature at work, have a picnic, etc. It was a bit of a hidden gem and I enjoyed every single visit. But, not more than few weeks after I moved back, I saw something pretty disturbing there and it makes me wonder if I'll ever return, not to mention if I'm living in a society whose values and morals continue to diminish. While what I saw left me reeling and taken aback, I had the presence of mind to take a picture of it, and, I feel like I can share it with you all and you'll most likely agree with my reaction.

 


U2 related note -

Since seeing U2 8 times in 14 nights at MSG last Summer, I have not listened to them, at all, since the final show.

Professional note - September/October is a busy time.

Movie note - I am looking forward to seeing this:

Arrival Reviews - Metacritic

Book note - I am currently reading and enjoying this:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...4-city-on-fire

TV note - Westworld

Sports note - I enjoy the MLB post-season. Greatly.

That is all.
Who cares?

NSW comes back and Dylan wins a Nobel prize. Coincidence? I think not.

Corey Feldman is just misunderstood, a lot like Nirvana or Kiss.

Personally I'm glad he's thinking about America.

Peace

True

But I think it's safe to say a lot of artists have.
