LIVE: Manhattan Transfer @ The Egg, 9/25/09

Monday, September 28th, 2009

You can read my review of Manhattan Transfer’s performance at The Egg on Friday evening in the Times Union.

Here are some additional observations:

Group leader Tim Hauser – an East Greenbush native – has a favorite spot that he visits whenever he gets to play a homecoming show. “Whenever I’m in Albany, there’s one place I always go – Jack’s,” Hauser told the crowd. “I was there today for lunch,” he added – oysters and clams.



The review to end all reviews

Friday, June 26th, 2009

If your weekend plans involve taking in the new Transformers movie, or especially if they don’t, Charlie Jane Anders has written a hilarious piece of cinema criticism about Revenge of the Fallen.

Critical consensus on Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen is overwhelmingly negative. But the critics are wrong. Michael Bay used a squillion dollars and a hundred supercomputers’ worth of CG for a brilliant art movie about the illusory nature of plot.

Oh, and I would warn you that there’ll be spoilers in this review — except that, really, since I still have no idea what actually happened in this movie, I’m not sure how much I can spoil it.
