Sanity check: I'm about 90% sure that the ski chase scene from Grand Budapest Hotel is Wes Anderson making fun of Spielberg and maybe other directors for the painfully forced video-game-tie-in action sequences they cram into their movies, but I have no idea how to check that. Any ideas?

My local jazz station (KMHD, they’re the best) just played this live Nat King Cole recording from 1960 and it is *incredible*. It was a late show in Vegas (2am start time) so the crowd is mostly other entertainers who are also working during normal performance times. If you are familiar with popular music in the late 50s, this is the equivalent to a very thorough diss track. Even if you just know who Elvis is...my god.
