Tom Jones Performs “Long Time Gone” with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young–and Blows the Band & Audience Away (1969)

Welsh crooner Tom Jones made an unlikely comeback in the late 80s, covering Prince’s “Kiss” with Art of Noise. Then in the mid-90s, he showed up on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air to sing mid-60s hit “It’s Not Unusual” for superfan Carlton Banks. This was a time of 60s comebacks all around, but Jones’ resurgence was a little odd (though perfectly in character for Carlton Banks). Tom Jones had been a big star in the mid to late 60s, with his own TV show and a string of international hits. But...

California’s reopening plan still lacks specifics

Californians are anxious about this ongoing statewide shutdown that has ground normal life to a halt, added 3 million people to the unemployment rolls, and undermined the economy and local government finances. Officials have done a reasonable job limiting the health effects of coronavirus, but it’s time for them to provide specifics about when they will ease their rules. On April 14, Gov. Gavin Newsom was ahead of the curve when he announced a six-point roadmap for relaxing these grueling stay-a...

Philadelphia Flyers 2012 Draft Revisited

Time flies when you are atop the Eastern Conference year in and year out. The Philadelphia Flyers were the team to beat for the early portion of the 2010s until eventually sputtering into mediocrity as the decade went on.

Six jazz movies you may not know

The film industry started making jazz-related features as soon as synchronized sound came in, in 1927: “I’m gonna sing it jazzy,” Al Jolson’s Jack Robin optimistically declares in the pioneering talkie The Jazz Singer, before taking off on Irving Berlin’s “Blue Skies.” (He gets closer to the jazzy mark whistling a quasi-improvised chorus of “Toot Toot Tootsie.”) Since then there have been dozens of movies focusing on jazz, or at least working it into the main plot.Such jazz stories have never be...

World Made By Hand is a post-pandemic world novel

(I originally reviewed this in 2008, but thought it was worth reposting, for obvious reasons. -- MF) In (2008) by James Howard Kunstler, the population of the United States (and most likely, the world) has been decimated by an energy shortage, starvation, plagues, terrorism, and global warming. The story takes place in an unspecified time in the near future (I'm guessing it's around 2025 or so). Kunstler is the author of the non-fiction book , and World Made by Hand is a fictional account of w...
