you may well have posted it Jerome, i cannot remember
but if you did then i missed it mate.
interesting track, a lot better than the crap Yoko Ono made!
all i know about that track is that it was recorded by Wings during the Band On The Run sessions.
was obviously a throw-away track back then but 100 times better than most of the crap in today's charts!

had thought about investing in Linda's "wild prairie" album but never got round to it, maybe i should...its on the list!

'The Surrounding Game' on Netflix. Not an entertaining movie as such but very interesting nevertheless. All about a board game from the Far East which is far more complex than chess. 'Go' goes as far back as the 6th Century and originated in China but is played all over the Far East. I never even knew this game existed until today. You can teach an old dog new tricks! Ruby I am willing to bet you would be very good at this. I would be totally crap. I don't like strategies or even playing games for that matter. Don't have the patience (another game I don't like) for it.

^^I've heard of 'Go' but never known much about it - the movie sounds interesting. Most I ever get around to is a very occasional game of Backgammon.

a doco story on BBC World about black american painter/artist Faith Ringgold and her struggles to be accepted in the segregated South as a serious artist.
she was interviewed and at age 89 she still has all of her faculties in place!

i had never heard of her prior to this doco but heres her Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faith_Ringgold

a movie should be made about her life iMO.

GAGA: five foot two

a Netflix doco.    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaga:_Five_Foot_Two

behind the scenes footage at home, recording the "joanne" album, on the set recording her appearances in American Horror Story and finally culminates in her Superbowl rehearsals.
had no idea she suffers from chronic pain with fibromyalgia

i watch this and see a vunerable woman one minute, a confident successful artiste the next followed by someone who is so far out there it makes me think Yoko and Bjork are 'normal' LOL.

all up though she comes across as a serious artist who is in control of her career and calculates every move and the consequences/possibilities of every move before she makes them.

she also appears to be quite down to earth and remembers who she was before success came her way.

i was quite impressed with the doco
the only criticism i have is that it would have been nice to see the Superbowl performance.

rating 4/5
