Labor Day Summary

The (first) 120 days of 2017

“Time keeps slipping, keeps slipping
Time, time keeps slipping
Time, time keeps slipping
Time, time keeps slipping”
(Scritti Politti: “Tinseltown to the Boogiedown”)

“But don’t look back in anger
Don’t look back in anger
I heard you say
At least not today”
(Oasis: “Don’t Look Back in Anger”)

So, how to begin? Is the glass a half empty or half full? I guess by the end of this column we feel right where we belong on this very first day of the May.

But given how 2016 ended, when the election of Donald John Trump topped off a year of sad departures by some of our greatest musicians (Leonard Cohen, Sharon Jones, Colonel Abrams and George Michael, to name just a few), let’s focus on the positives.
True, the title of this piece nods to the Nazi-masterpiece (sic) “Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom” by Pier Paolo Pasolini, but then those negative vibrations often produce our best art.
So, let’s pay tribute to all those cultural developments, great and small, that the Kaput team and me weren’t able to draw your attention to, because we were too busy hustling through the last 119 days.
