J. Cole — The 31-year-old North Carolina rapper displayed towering talent, as well as near-blinding star power, as he rocked a huge crowd with selections from his increasingly impressive catalog. Just chalk it up as further evidence that Cole may well be the top artist working in hip-hop today. Duran Duran — The former MTV heartthrobs took fans on a fun trip down Memory Lane, drawing cheers as they raced through “Planet Earth,” “Girls on Film,” “Hungry Like the Wolf” and other dance-rook delights. The best moment of the set came when the British synth-pop heroes paid tribute to David Bowie and delivered a stylish cover of the late, great Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s “Space Oddity.”.

So I talked with Jerry White, owner of JW Painting of Orlando, and his lead interior painter, Jessica Reed. Here are 10 tell-tale signs that an amateur is on the job, along with professional tips. 1) Outlets are painted over. A sure sign that an amateur painted a room is that the electrical outlets or switches are painted over. Slacker, you have to take them off and paint around switches and plugs. 2) Nail holes have too much spackle. Non-pros tend to overfill nail holes, so patches look obvious. Just use a tiny amount of spackle and don’t let it extend beyond the edges. The hole should disappear when painted over.
