Video: Lana Del Rey – “Mariners Apartment Complex” Single out now on Interscope. Like a lot of grumpy dudes I was initially put off by Lana Del Rey because of some atavistic ideas about authenticity.

Any bluesman will tell you it’s a game of sleight of hand. They all employ little tricks that confound and surprise you, which is essential for keeping music that is based on simple structures and patterns exciting.

It’s hard to describe just how unstoppable Burt Reynolds was at his peak in the late 70s, but here’s a quick (if somewhat disconnected) example: I had a babysitter when I was in elementary school whose dad was a Burt Reynolds impersonator. And he was good. He was a dead ringer and he’d even borrow … Continue reading Godspeed, Bandit
