Because we’re so caffeinated, we can watch a lot more stuff than you do and thus save you the time. We pass that savings on to you. You’re welcome. Playlist first, explanations after.(more…)
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck…as we continue on this stroll down memory lane, we welcome you to return to that heyday of early 2016. Ah, the salad days.
Once in a while, a museum exhibition comes along that simply wows you with a sense of “I must see this!” glee and excitement! Like a Van Gogh retrospective or the Tut Exhibition from back in the day, the MCA’s David Bowie Is was such an experience.
Created by London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, this exhibition is the first to examine Bowie as a powerful figure in music, art design, theatre and film. It also emphasizes his impact on contemporary culture through the lens of his creative process and multiple collaborations. The exhibition, which opened on September 23, 2014 and closed on January 4, 2015 was a pretty big deal. The MCA Chicago was the only American venue for David Bowie Is, making it the epicenter for music freaks, artists and pop culture junkies.
Did you know Michael C. Hall can do an eeriely decent vocal impersonation of David Bowie? Well, considering Bowie’s musical Lazarus has been around since last year…maybe you did. I did not. So seeing that Hall was performing “Lazarus” at the Mercury Prize was just a novelty. Then the guy started singing. Nice. When the soundtrack for the show is released, I need it. And I definitely need to check out Mercury winner Skepta…because to beat out Bowie must be something special.
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck, the podcast that is gigantic compared to Leigh. But then again, most things are.
