There’s a profile of Iggy Pop in the new issue. Filled with trepidation. Me, not the article.

Wasn't bad.

I agree.  It wasn't bad.  She interviewed the right people.  But didn't you feel that this was someone who hadn't spent a lot of time listening to the music?

 

She's talking about his new album, which has some inappropriate lyrics, and she says - hey, don't be surprised, and starts telling the old stories about his stage show. I think anyone immersed in the music would have said, hey don't be surprised, look at "I Wanna Be Your Dog"

I used to be young enough to wear this shirt. Looking forward to being old enough to wear it again.

I enjoyed the Adam Driver profile, especially as I didn’t know much about him except that he keeps turning in great performances in movies I like. And I don’t even have a crush on him (see Oscar Isaac).

I can’t think of a better movie I’ve seen about poetry (poetry, not the life of a poet) than “Paterson,” and that was my introduction to his work.
