This week’s Open Thread is coming in too fast! Pull up, pull up!
Quick bursts; no questions or pics this week. You’re literate folks, though; you can keep up:
Malcolm McLaren, the British producer responsible for discovering the Sex Pistols, died of cancer at age 64 on Thursday.
The Addams Family Musical opened this week on Broadway. Reviews are largely mixed, even with Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth as the loco parentis.
We’re breaking our promise not to talk about the Tiger Woods scandal because this is less about scandal and more about sport: Tiger Woods returned to the Masters this week, trailing Fred Couples by 2 strokes as of this writing.
And some movies! Opening this week: After.life, a Christina Ricci horror thriller that looks awful; The Runaways, a critically acclaimed biopic of Joan Jett and Cherrie Curie starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning; and Date Night, the Steve Carell / Tina Fey, are-you-sure-they-haven’t-worked-together-before, it’s-not-that-I-doubt-you, I’m-just-going-to-hit-IMDB-real-quick, you-were-correct, sorry-for-doubting-you action comedy.
It’s a dirty, grungy week of weird families and redemption, apparently. Sound off in the comments, for this is your … open thread.
