Happy Birthday DR Charles Pogue.

And i'm just catching up with posts from yesterday.

Happy belated anniversary DR Ginny and Richard.

And re: TAR for DR TCB.

I'm not sure if anybody answered your question (if lance bass' boyfriend was in TAR allstars).  His former boyfriend was Reichen from Chip and Reichen (winners). And no they are not one of the teams involved in TAR allstars.  There is only one winner (joyce and uchenna). Although there is also one team that was dating during the show but broke up (jill and john vito). Hope that helps.

I'll take a wild guess where the The Colony Theater got its name.

TOD:

Yes, the Kritzer books.  I could be on the island and dream of Los Angles in the 50's and early 60's.  Not bad.

"Almost Like Being in Love"  Steve Kluger

The Oxford English Dictionary

A Pictorial History of the Talkies -- Daniel Blum

The Encyclopaedia of Imaginary Places

A few children's books and an art history book

That's a start-- there si much literature and many reference books  I would consider.

I'm tired.
Sick and tired of love
I've had my fill of love
From below and above
Tired, tired of being admired
Tired of love uninspired
Let's face it
I'm tired

I've been with 1000's of men
Again and again
They promise the moon
They always coming and going
Going and coming
And always too soon

DR Jose, we don't get the Janice Modeling show here. So who is the Survivor contestant on it?

As for last night's AMERICAN IDOL, from what i saw my favorite was the 16 brunette (girl) with the long frizzy hair).  She had that killer smile. And a really great voice.

OMG what was up with that 6' 7 woman? If i was 6'4 i would not wear 3 inch heels! :)

Thursday morning greeetings.  My 10am appointment called to cancel due to illness, so now I have more time to figure out what I'm going to say to the college class that's visiting this afternoon.

Happiest of birthdays to DR Charles Pogue!

...David Pogue, an excellent technology/computer columnist for the New York Times).

DR Ben - in 2000, DH Richard and DS Rob went with me to Chicago for the American Library Association annual conference.  It was so much fun to turn them loose in the exhibit hall and meet up later - they'd open their goodie bags and say, "Look what I got!" (like trick or treat).  David Pogue, autographing books at the O'Reilly booth, was so nice to Rob, encouraging his interest in computers and letting me take a picture of the two of them.

David Pogue is a great columnist and writer. I like him because he doesn't talk down to people, he's excited about what he does, he's intelligent but can share that intelligence in a way that most people can understand and he seems to be a genuinely nice guy, a seeming rarity nowadays. Before he became columnist for the NY Times he had a life in musical theatre. He was a musician and played in the pit of some Broadway shows!

Good morning!

We did get a bit of freezing rain, but the ice storm predicted for us just didn't happen, at least not yet. But it's super cold and not likely to warm up today. High in the mid 30s, they say. BBBBBrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Tonight is so chock-full of potentially memorable TV.

For comic book fans, we see the first incarnation of the Justice League of America on SMALLVILLE just filled to the brim with major male eye candy. Green Arrow, Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg from previous seasons all turn up needing Clark's help. This should be a very entertaining hour of comic book-level fun.

On the music front, NBC's SCRUBS has a musical episode tonight with the songsd written by the talented Tony award-winning composers of AVENUE Q. What's more, Stephanie D'abruzzo guest stars on the episode. Should be loads of fun.

And over on ABC, we have the Golden Globe winner for Best Comedy (UGLY BETTY) and the Golden Globe Winner for Best Drama (GREY'S ANATOMY) airing back-to-back with new episodes. What a super night of TV on that network!

Over at CSI, we welcome Liev Schreiber as William Petersen's temporary replacement in the lab for the first of a story arc for him. The episode has gotten good advanced reviews, so it should be something to see, too. Always interesting when a new face enters an established ensemble cast, especially when the new face is going to be the new boss.

Speaking of male eye candy brings to mind a certain Shakespeare photo we haven't seen around these parts in a while, so on that note (see sharp)...    :)

Happy birthday DR Charles Pogue

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.

Good Morning!

I'm up! I'm up!... "courtesy" of my cell phone...

"Hey, Jose.  Are you available to play today?"
-When?
"Well... Now, actually.  Our pianist hasn't shown up yet."
-What?.. Oh... Hmm...  Well, it would take me at least a half hour to get down there right now.
"Oh, OK.  Well, I'll call around, and I'll give you a call if I can't track someone else down."
-Oh, OK... Thanks.

-I'm guessing he found someone and/or the pianist showed up.

In any case... I'm up.

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!!!!

He's also an Ohio (suburban Cleveland) native and author of Classical Music for Dummies and Opera for Dummies.
