Oh, how exciting it all is to live in New York Fucking City! Every day is an adventure here because you never know what might transpire–randomly running into celebrities or, even more exciting, running into the crazies who talk to themselves. Seriously think about it, the only time anyone can say that their life in NYC is boring is if they do absolutely nothing at all, and said nothing is in the confines of their clearly dreadful apartment….I’m just saying! Life is meant to be lived and boy, did we pick a city to live it in!
This is a very pleasant evening of the music of singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell, sung by a diverse cast of cabaret and musical theatre singers. I was drawn to see Tales of Joni because of Heather MacCrae and Lisa Asher – I’ve seen MacCrae live before and heard recordings by Asher. And indeed many of the brightest highlights of the evening do come from these two. Asher shines singing Joni’s hits, including a country-tinged “Raised on Robbery” and a very thoughtful and measured “Both Sides Now”.
I’ve made it no secret that I don’t think Anthony Weiner should be running for Mayor of New York City. With a clearly sordid personal life and potentially more scandals to fall out of his skeleton of closets, the former Congressman would put City Hall on rocky ground if he were to be elected Mayor.
However, after looking at the polling numbers, I’m left wondering if Anthony Weiner might be helping Chris Quinn’s chances of winning the Democratic primary for Mayor. It might sound odd, but here’s what I’ve observed.
This week, we learned of another scandal involving New York City mayoral hopeful, Anthony Weiner. Its another online affair, but this one didn’t happen before he resigned from Congress. This one happened just last year.
