Optimism is in the air in Hollywood as the summer movie season kicks off this weekend with the release of #DoctorStrange2. The @AP is here to guide you through what’s coming to the big, and small, screens this summer. apne.ws/W5otg3O
After two down years because of the pandemic, analysts say summer profits could approach 2019 levels. Pre-pandemic, the summer movie season regularly accounted for around 40% of the year’s grosses.
Expectations are high for #TopGunMaverick, which sees Tom Cruise reprising one of his most iconic roles, has waited in the wings for two years for the right moment to fly into theaters. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer says he never wavered in wanting to release it in theaters.

“My Man” - ‘MM’ is the track that kick started it all.

MM provided the impetus that began the creative work for the @jilldjones ‘JJ’ album.

So from that POV alone, it’s a very important track.

MM was constructed over a period of 7 months at Sunset Sound.

On 10 May 1985, after finalising the configuration of the Mazarati album, P created the initial version of MM.

On 12 May 1985 P recorded overdubs & it’s also possible that JJ laid down the vocals on this date. ImageImage
In that same month, P was laying down tracks & configuring several other projects including Parade, The Family, ATWIAD, Dance Electric, Manic Monday & Roadhouse Garden.

He was also working on a no. of unreleased tracks.

And also planning UTCM & scouting for movie locations🤯 ImageImage

With the County in lockdown and knowing he'd be home, I took the chance to catch a few moments with @Recluseuk/@oldsamuelband lead singer/guitarist, @BrittRecluseuk learning that it maybe it wasn't Lisa Simpson that peaked his interest in music...

Do you remember when you were first aware of music?

BR: One of the earliest memories involving music that I have is travelling in my dad’s car to a holiday somewhere in England listening to Freddie Mercury’s I Was Born to Love You, I was pretty much raised on #Queen & #Elvis
BR: I must have been around 4-5 years old.

Are you a still fan?

BR: They are indelibly linked to so memories that I’m definitely fond of them. There are specific songs by each that make my trousers fly away, I look at you, ‘It’s Late’ and Innuendo..

Do you know of any "secret occultists?" Who do you know of that was deep into the occult but the public seems to just gloss over?

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Here’s a fun story for you. I spent 3 years learning about this guy, Phil Kitzer, the greatest con artist you’ve never heard of. 1/
In the 1960s, he was arrested for embezzling millions of $ out of 15 insurance companies in Minneapolis and Chicago, bankrupting them. 2/
Kitzer spent 8 days testifying in his own defense. He was hypnotic, charismatic. After 3-month trial, the jury believed & acquitted him. 3/
