TOD:

All the books I would want to have on my island would be books I have not yet read. I would take along several Perry Mason novels, several "The Cat Who...." novels, assorted bios and autobios, and those funny "Bad Cats" and "Bad Dogs" books so I would have something to make me laugh.

That was quite philosophical, wasn't it?

If only I could remove the "t" from there I'd be here.  Of course, I am here, so maybe if I add a "t" to here I'll be there.  Yes, I'll add a "t".

Rodzinsky-Thanks for the warning on MEDIUM (I didn’t read the details).  If we don’t like the episode we will turn it off instead of sitting through it.

We have a quorum on the forum.  Obviously, I haven't added a "t" yet.

Jane, go to eBay advanced search (usually at the top of any page).  When you are taken to that page, look at the task bar over to the left.  It has a clickable link to look up sellers and buyers.

Thanks all for the birthday felicitations!

My ten desert island books:

1) SHE by H. Rider Haggard

2) THE FAR CRY by Fredric Brown

3) THE GREEN MAN by Henry Treece

4) THE COMPLETE WORKS OF SHAKESPEARE

5) THE ODYSSEY

6) THE ILLIAD

7) THE COMPLETE WORKS OF GEORGE BERNARD SHAW

8 THE ANNOTATED SHERLOCK HOLMES

9) THE ESSENTIAL ELLISON

10) ROGET'S THESAURUS...that way I could write too, if I could find some paper on that desert island.  I supposed I could use the margins of the Complete Works of Shakespeare, if I could find a pencil.

Well, I'm going there and when I'm through there I'll come back here.  This sounds like an Ed Wood movie.

You probably need to reset the "no smilies" agan.

Otherwise....the "8" and the ")" you placed to its immediate right translate to 8)

Re: "American Idol" -- I'd give a pretty to know how much money the "Idol" producers pay those woebegone contestants who are set up for national humiliation.

Surely there's a stipend for the ridiculing, belittling and assassinating thrust upon those sorry folks.

Did any of our Seattle folks see anyone they know?

He mentioned on the "Survivor" finale that he was going to be on "Janice Dickinson".  And since Janice always makes her models take off all their clothes at their initial photo-shoot/audition....  HOT!!!!

It's funny but this guy does nothing for me at all.  I thought he was cute before i saw him on survivor. But i really did not like his personality at all and was very happy when he got voted off.

Re AMERICAN IDOL last night:

One of the things I found really touching last night involved the brother and sister who were both passed along to Hollywood. After Simon told the brother he had a better voice than his sister (and the sister had said outside that she considereed that she had the better voice), the brother hedged his answer when Ryan Seacrest asked him who the judges thought had the better voice. I found that wonderful that he didn't embarrass his sister on national TV even though he could have very easily. I suspect those two siblings love each other very much, and it was a beautiful thing to see.

I guess it's moments like this that make suffering through all the bad singers tolerable. The IDOL editors are very canny about including this kind of footage amid all the bad singing and weird personalities.

Yes, that was a nice touch -- especially after the outbursts of ego from so many of the untalented -- also the gal in the pink "net" that Simon said made her look sunburned.  She was out there laughing with her friends afterward, admitting that her nerves got the best of her on the high notes, and that she hoped she was better than her audition or either her friends had been lying to her (and she really didn't have an awful audition, seemed nerves got a few of her notes but parts weren't that bad either -- she was poetry compared to "Red"...) -- but she came across as a good sport.

I don't watch SCRUBS but will definitely tape the musical episode. Does anybody know if it is 30 minutes or will it go over?

I concur with DR Rodzinski's assessment of last night's "Medium."

I like this cast immensely, and nothing on TV matches the family dynamic...WHEN the family is actually interacting.

Last night....well....I knew murder had been done after her first dream.  When I saw the flashback of the boy with the older man and the "lad", I knew instantly who that the "lad" was and what had probably happened.

I wasn't bored...but I certainly wasn't challenged.

What bent me out of shape, however, was the ending.  If they're going to let us figure everything out before Allison does, how come we don't at least get to see the murderer's comeuppance?

oh, and is it just me, or can they put a sign on the correct exit door already -- or better yet, move that production assistant sitting in that hair over a few feet to block the locked portion and let her point to the unlocked side as they head out?  I guess the producers found that funny watching the losers lose their last shread of dignity stuggling with the locked door -- but it got old real quick. Isn't there some guidline/rule in comedy about using a running gag up to three times, and after that it ain't funny no more?

I wonder if there's some food he'd rather have....shrimp and grits?  Kentucky BBQ?  Ribs? Pecan pie?

Or something plain?

Well, I was just "passing on" the caption that was listed in the original article.  -Although, I have seen Mr. Tune walking around NYC recently, and I'd have to say, Yes, that's him in the pic.  -And probably "standing" on his knees.

No, it's not just you.  Simon apparently got a kick saying, "The 'other' door."

This has never been part of the audition ordeal before.  In Minneapolis, it was a fluke.  In Seattle it was a "planned thing."
