First of All: Did you get really jealous in July when you read about how I went and saw Mr. Brownstone, the Guns N Roses cover band? Well, you're in luck (if you are a New Yorker) as they're playing again this Friday night . . . with an opening band called "Bling Kong," which is clever. If a strong Guns N Roses imitation is what you need, North Six is where you should be (Tonight, Late).
Second of All: This is exactly the sort of thing I worry about whenever I fly into Midway.
Third: The trailer for Sophia Coppola's new Marie Antoinette movie is now online at AOL. I'm telling you now that if you watch this trailer at work with your computer's sound turned off and then go home and watch it again with the sound on you're going to be seeing two very different trailers . . . so I suggest you wait until you get home so you can listen to it as well as watch it. What am I talking about? Ms. Coppola has made an unusual choice for the song that plays during this dialogue-less trailer for her non-Baz Luhrman looking period piece film. What do I think? I think the tune ("Age of Consent" by New Order) is a brilliant choice because it says to me "Look how much fun it was to be Marie Antoinette! Would you care about poor people if you were Marie Antoinette?" Oh yeah, this is the link.
4th: It is slushy out there. My feet itch.
