Non teme la ripresa la rubrica (non) più giovane di Nerds Attack! Un diario di appunti del meglio (circolettato di rosso) ma soprattutto del peggio (circolettato di marrone) che il mondo dell’intrattenimento riesce a regalarci con estrema scioltezza quotidiana. Up & Down. E che nessuno si offenda vi augura buon divertimento.
* Repubblica.it parla è sicura: “I concerti di settembre, tra Elodie e il post-rock di Vasco Brondi“.
* “‘Da vita spericolata alla mascherina, che brutta fine’, Vasco Rossi contro l’hater: ‘Brucia i dischi e datti fuoco’”. Magnifico. Ma non c’è più redenzione, compassione, rivalutazione. Solo marrone tanto marrone.
+ Jay White (The Agony Scene).
+ Lex Gore (Adaptive Reaction).
+ Erick Morillo (Reel 2 Real).
+ Ian Mitchell (Bay City Rollers).
+ Gary Peacock.
* I 75 anni di Van Morrison.
* I 65 anni di Steve Jones.

* “Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger insists his band has no interest in retiring”. L’unico ritiro che non acceteremo mai.

* Ricordate la diatriba dello scorso maggio esplosa via Twitter tra Liam Gallagher e Mark Lanegan? Dopo qualche mese (!) all’ex-Oasis risponde Anton Newcombe.
Come on Liam, @marklanegan is a good guy, works fucking harder than shit, and makes people happy. He’s the real deal even if you don’t like his music. You don’t have to be at war with the world, put people down to lift yourself up and have your place.

* Vi interessa vincere un bel disco di platino di ‘The Queen Is Dead’ degli Smiths? Chiedete a Mike Joyce!
“Hi folks, I’d like to invite you to be in with a chance of owning a unique piece of music memorabilia whilst also helping a charity I am involved with. I’ve been working with Back on Track for the last few years and I’m taking this opportunity to try and generate some much needed funding for the people they support in Manchester. Every penny that is raised from this venture will go towards the fantastic work that the charity does. So here’s the story… I’ve been invited By Tim Burgess to play ‘The Queen is Dead’ in its entirety at his now infamous Listening Parties and that was the catalyst to attempt to raise some money to coincide with the event. The platinum disc was presented to me by Warner’s Music. It’s an extremely rare piece of music memorabilia and as such, it’s virtually impossible to quantify what it’s worth as this is the very first time such a unique item has ever been offered to the public, and it could be yours…for just £5! I decided that it would be a better idea to have a raffle rather than an auction as it means that everyone who buys a ticket has a chance of owning it. Of course you can buy as many tickets as you wish and you just need to make a donation on this page. I can sign the disc to the winner and it will come with a signed letter of authenticity. Good Luck folks, and many thanks for helping.”

Ballot in hand. Lest there by any confusion, here is how simple, secure and verifiable it is to Vote By Mail. These photos were from this July as I voted early in the August primary here in Seattle. Piece of cake. In regards to something so huge as taking part in our democracy and putting your voices to great use, nothing could be easier. And at this intense time of a global pandemic, even more importantly, nothing could be SAFER.
