The All-Star Jam is the place to do YOUR thing…but leave your shirt on, will you?

  1. I like a good savage music review every now and then — like in the olden days. With everyone going nuts with four and five star reviews of the new Arcade Fire album — here’s another view from Chris Richards of the Washington Post — “we should all be repulsed . . . ”

  2. It’s about time critics start calling bullshit on that band. Better yet, Richards ends with a cut on Gravity. I have been holding my tongue since seeing that film this past Saturday night. I HATED IT! Part of me is afraid I’m going to lose friends over my feelings on the movie, while another part of me looks forward to what may be a necessary scaling back.

    I am generally a big fan of Clooney but it is almost literally incomprehensible to me that any film with Sandra Bullock in it could be worth watching.

    It was great to see the Sox win it all again last night, which is truly unbelievable to this pre-2004 fan. Shane Victorino was great. I forgot that the Phillies actually shipped him off to the Dodgers last year. They couldn’t afford him?

    Another thing, someone I work w/also saw Gravity & she also hated it.

  6. The Phillies, last July, decided to “turn the page” on free agents and arbitration-eligible players they weren’t going to bring back. Victorino was traded for a stiff reliever (Lindblom, who gave up home runs at an astronomical pace) and a probable stiff prospect, Ethan Martin, who looks like one of the big, undisciplined goons that late-’80s/early-90s Phils GM Lee Thomas loved to hoard.

    Your Gravity-hating coworker is Good People!

    My God, that was great. John Lackey, of all people! As Kevin Garnett once said, “Anything is possible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    Hold on, wait, whuuuut?


    Yes, that’s right; Roger Daltrey performed “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” in the Capitol rotunda, dressed in formal wear, for an assembled multitude of DC pols/hacks, at the unveiling of a bust of Winston Churchill.

    What does this mean?

  9. For the record, I saw Wonder live in the early ’80s, and he was excellent! Of course, he didn’t bore the snot out of me with all those jazzy love ballads to the Lord that litter Songs in the Key of Life.
