Art as a vehicle for insight, expansiveness, a genesis of ideas and emotions while Entertainment existing as a tickling, fondling, and ultimately forgettable experience in the form of sensory stimulation.
Times Square on NYE, -ultimate entertainment. Tits, ass, dancers, and the same song they’ve been pipe feeding you for over a decade. All abbreviated.
The real question isn’t why she was “playing along” (most likely reason -it was in her contract for a super load of $), but the real question: Was the public more amazed that she was doing it or more amazed that it technically failed?
We all ultimately decide to either give our attention to Art or Entertainment. While Art can be entertaining, Entertainment in itself, becomes lacking in purpose more and more as time goes on.

“I’ve got wishes but I keep them all to myself
They don’t belong to you or someone else

I want to thank everyone who made 2016 another great year. I could spend time recapping but I’ll do that in January more strategically.
Till then … your NYE GIFT might you accept it.

Jumping on a plane in a few minutes to France and Spain to do shows and writing. Lot’s of writing! This came in from “Premier Guitar” last week, apparently, they listened and as you will read below, enjoyed “Loyalty.”
If you don’t have “Loyalty” yet, get it HERE.
“Connecting the dots between rock, funk, and soul with his high-wire guitar playing and raw-boned-but elegant vocal performances, Evan Goodrow’s Loyalty sounds like an arrival. It’s the impressive work of a disciplined, self-aware performer who has captured his own unique genuine, soaring sonic and heart-felt vision.”
—Ted Drozdowski, Premier Guitar
