Hello, unicorns! How are we doing this week, in this world without David Bowie? Let’s catch up on some of this week’s interesting news stories…
We all hoped he’d be immortal on Earth, but alas, David Bowie returned to the universe this week.
After two weeks in a row with story after dreadful story, let’s have something short and with some sweet, sweet karma.
Hello, unicorns. This week’s News Bites have more entertainment stories than usual, but some weeks, maybe we need that. First though, let’s get into more serious matters:
This week, a break in format: Rather than talk about the music I already own, let’s dedicate some space to newer music upon which I can’t wait to lay my greedy paws.
Let’s establish one thing from the outset: In no way will this review be unbiased. As someone who has spent the past eighteen years studying the career trajectory of Oasis and the post-breakup albums of the band members, and as someone who is hopelessly indulgent when it comes to the arrogance of Noel Gallagher, it is through these filters that I read Alex Niven’s contribution to the 33 1/3 book series, his examination of Oasis’ 1994 debut, Definitely Maybe.
Hello, fellow unicorns. This week, we’re a bit more international with our news bites, and I also have a few bonus stories that amused me. With all the horrible things that happen, it’s good to find a few points of light. Let’s get to it.
With this week marking the 20th anniversary of Oasis’ Definitely Maybe arriving in the world, I needed even less minimal encouragement to talk once more about the band. Because I do not own that outstanding album on vinyl, and because I’d need a book-length space (á la 33 1/3 Books) to fully articulate my thoughts, instead let’s turn our attention to Oasis’ last single, this surreal Amorphous Androgynous remix of the Noel Gallagher-sung “Falling Down.”
