2011 Tony Awards Opening Number

June 14th, 2011

I’ve already watched this seven times, and I can’t seem to stop. Just brilliantly funny, and Neil Patrick Harris is utterly awesome.

Birth of a President

April 15th, 2011

The news services are picking up the “harsh words” Obama had for Republicans when his mic was (apparently unbeknownst to him) still on.

A Startling Realization

March 4th, 2011

I just figured out that they call it “Hawaii Five-O” because Hawaii is the fiftieth (5-0) state.

I’m a little slow, huh…?

American Idolatry — The Girls

March 3rd, 2011

This is going to be Season of the Boys, cuz it’s slim pickins among the ladies.

The standouts were Bette-Midler Lauren, Southern-Blonde Lauren, and Pia Not-Zadora.

I would’ve included little Thia, but she let out two hugely flat important notes (and I’m shocked the judges completely ignored that).

I can see the finale being between the Tourette’s guy and the Seth-Rogen guy…or the Gospel-Doughboy guy.

American Idolatry

March 2nd, 2011

This is a good season of American Idol…and if whoever is programming the background screen gets off the Charlie Sheen acid trip, I might even be able to watch as I listen.

Lots of the guys are good singers. Three are GREAT: James Durbin, Jacob Lusk, and Casey Abrams. Insanely talented.

And that’s all he wrote. For now.

Sarah Palin: Dangerously in step with herpes

February 4th, 2011

I read this line in the Yahoo news: “Sarah Palin says America is dangerously out of step with the values of Ronald Reagan.”

Does the former-but-abandoned-her-state Governor means that America is out of step with credit-card economics and placing the wealth of corporations over the well-being of citizens? Because aren’t those the values of Ronald Reagan?

Or is it madness to even respond seriously to a question posed by a woman who makes herpes take a back seat for the title of “gift that keeps on giving”?

Celebrity Rehab Redux

January 12th, 2011

I’ve come a long way since I first started ragging on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.” I don’t know that I even consider it a sheepishness-inducing “guilty pleasure” any longer. Somehow, especially this season, it has surmounted its luridness and become something resonant.

This season’s batch of rehabbing “celebs” has been the most unwilling, strident, unrecovering mob yet (and, I admit with requisite remaining sheepishness, I have watched all seasons). Read the rest of this entry »

We’re Baaaaa-aaaack

January 6th, 2011

Some horrifying, inexplicable something happened, and the whole database containing all the illustriousness you’ve come to know and tolerate was deleted. Thank God and my hosting service for backups, cuz here it is, reborn or whatever.

Dunno how it happened, don’t wanna dwell on the ramifications, don’t tell me not to live just sit and flutter. Bottom line, it’s a new day…and I’ve opened the feedback options back up (at least until the spambots start getting too prolific again), and comments can be left without registration or your first born child. Hallelu.

Feedbacking

January 1st, 2011

Hey all,

I haven’t been leaving a lot of posts lately, so I expected there wouldn’t be a lot of feedback. But I did just notice that I had adjusted the security setting a while ago (after getting a lot of spam) — and the setting were such that NOBODY could leave any feedback.

So that’s fixed now. You have to register…but at least now you CAN register. Sorry that there’s one more step than there used to be, but at least now none of us have to read about penile enhancement in the feedback section. Well…we don’t have to read about it when it’s from a spambot. <impish grin>

And…Happy New Year!!

Being Single in San Francisco

January 1st, 2011

I am flirting with the idea of bloggily recording my dating and/or horizontal experiences since my arrival in San Francisco. I have thus far found it to be different from any other city in which I’ve lived. And I have a tentative title for this running opus:

In A Fog
