I’m posting this video to remind myself that the NFL, in its finest moments, is infinitely more exciting than the judicial system.
That said, it was a pretty special experience to find myself constantly refreshing a twitter feed for live updates on what was happening inside Kimba Wood’s courtroom as attorneys for the Southern District of New York, Michael Cohen, and Donald Trump argued about how to process evidence seized during a raid of Michael Cohen’s home, office, and hotel room. I’d rate the excitement level I felt when Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan stood up in court and said “The client’s name that is involved is Sean Hannity” as approximately 0.3 Diggs. I’m looking forward to the next hearing (in one Mooch’s time, I believe) the same way I look forward to episodes of Game of Thrones (at least, the way I used to look forward to new episodes – having them discover an offscreen teleportation device really killed a lot of the magic of that show for me).
On to the music!
Last week’s theme was “cooking”, which included things like chefs, restaurants, spices, meats, desserts, and many, many different kinds of food. There were a ton of great picks, by my favorite so far (I’ll admit I haven’t made it through the whole playlist, which is gigantic) has been Low Commander of the Super Soldier’s selection of “Dine Alone” by Quicksand. TheeWeeBabySeamus also came through nicely with his pick of the eponymous “Too Many Cooks” by Robert Cray, and I’m also really enjoying yeah right’s pick of the Stanley Clarke, Jeff Beck, and Carmine Appice collaboration “Rock n Roll Jelly”. And a final honorable mention to Gratliff’s choice of “Down, Down, Down To Mephisto’s Cafe”. There’s a lot to like here, so bring your appetite…for tunes!
