MadameX at BAM

Just got home from the Madonna MadameX concert at BAM with Jodie.

Started late, but was an awesome concert, really liked the venue and she's right.....venues made for sports teams suck for music.

 I have no idea how she is making money on a 2,000 seat venue with the number of dancers, singers, musicians etc let alone pay for the awesome sets, lights, design - but lets face it this "bus tour" concert was never about money and about being able to perform in an intimate face to face way.

 No photos unfortunately as they did the "phone lockup thing" which was ok......until you realise you are sitting there for over 1.5 hours at the start waiting for the show to start..... (some photos here - https://www.nme.com/reviews/live/madonna-madame-x-residency-review-new-york )

This said considering she went from 11 to 1.15am she's totally forgiven. Especially as it was super high energy night (with a few catch her breath breaks) and a great example of what a super fit 61 year old can do to this 50 year old.

 And thats the end of #TheWeekOfDean

Burn 6000 calories a day sitting

Really interesting article about how grand-master chess players can burn 6000 calories a day just sitting.

Its totally changed my thinking around being cerebral and even if you are in a role where you are just "thinking" that being in peak physical shape will change your performance level of being able to "think faster"

Pleat

Ok folks.....we need a word for "Plant based meats" im nominating.... "Pleat".

So you can have "Beef Pleat", "Chicken Pleat" or even "Fish Pleat".

 But there is no way we can continue to call pea protein based "products" using the word "meat".

Thoughts?

The Loudest Voice

I'm @NowWatching E7 of #TheLoudestVoice essential watching.

 Amazing acting by @russellcrowe

Can you believe these photos are of the same guy that was Maximus in Gladiator.

It's hard to know how much is fat suit and how much weight he put on but his acting of Roger Ailes is perfection and been a super interesting mini series, especially when juxtaposed against the upcoming Trump 2020 re-election.
