Bagpiper at Arcadia Bluffs

What an incredible weekend at Arcadia Bluffs. I’ll have more to say and show about the courses, but here is a video to give you a taste of the sunset over Lake Michigan.

Pictures and videos can’t do this place justice though. Incredible.

Christone “Kingfish” Ingram

Marvel’s Luke Cage series on Netflix has some great music, with many artists actually performing in the show. I had to pause season 2 episode 4 to look up the blues player, who is 19-year-old Christone “Kingfish” Ingram fromĀ Clarksdale,Ā Mississippi. Here are the two songs from the show.

I Put a Spell on You

The Thrill is Gone

Unfortunately there were only four hits on iTunes and he may have only been playing the guitar in the other two. Here’s a full performance I was able to find. This guy can really play the guiter and has a cool voice.

JAY-Z & Letterman

Last night I watched JAY-Z onĀ My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.Ā I can’t recall ever watching an interview with JAY-Z before this, so it surprised me when he seemed a little awkward and uncomfortable. Especially for someone who might be the best artist of our generation. He had such a different presence than I got from Dr. Dre, another hip-hop legend,Ā in The Defiant Ones. It’s quite possible it was because of editing or the format of the show though.

I’ve been listening to JAY-Z’s music for a long time, but never knew much about him. It was good watching him talk about his life and experiences as well as some of the tough conversations our country is having.
