Is Dancing with the Stars as tacky as American idol?

This is an actual footnote to an amended order filed in federal court today

1The previous Order (Docket No. 21) filed in this matter
indicated that Ms. Forsyth would be out of the office
attending a seminary. This, of course, was a typo and the
amended Order is being filed to correct that Ms. Forsyth is
out of the office attending a seminar.

I added the italics, but it's the part that really cracked me up

No, I think it's a lot more fun. They aren't trying to get a trophy or rich and famous, they are just dancing for a disco ball trophy and to say they won.

...and June always got dressed up when they went over to the Rutherford's house to play bridge.  8)
When did June ever dress down?

Has anyone ever noticed how relentlessly cheery the music is on the Law & Order shows?

Isn't GAMES a remake of DIABOLIQUE?

Is there an echo in here?

Back from a good work session and by the end of this week we should have all the songs chosen, at least we'll have a first version of what will become the act.

I had some supper at the Pig 'n' Whistle, about which more later.

I watched THE FOXES OF HARROW before prime time began tonight. It's almost two hours so it was all I had time for prior to TV beginning.

Pretty good print that the Fox Movie Channel is using. There were some speckles but nothing major and the black and white was really lush looking.

I enjoyed it. It told the story leisurely, not rushing through anything, and making the story pretty up front for 1947 when it was filmed. I mean, there was no doubt that O'Hara was basically raped on her wedding night or that Rex Harrison was engaged in an open affair with another woman while still married.

AMERICAN IDOL had pretty much a dud show tonight. I didn't think the BeeGees/Gibb music would be especially suitable for solo singers, and I was right.

Melinda was solidly professional on both her songs. I thought Blake did much better than the judges gave him credit for doing. I wasn't nearly as impressed with Jordin's first song as they were and felt both of her songs pointed up her basic weaknesses: a weak low end, a shaky head voice, and pitch problems in her upper belt range.

As for LaKisha, she was my least favorite tonight. As she has done with almost every single mentor the show has had, she totally ignored the advice on both of her songs, and they were the poorer for her choices.

My order:

Melinda, Blake, Jordin, and LaKisha. I think LaKisha should go home.

VERONICA MARS had one of th simpliest cases in the three year history of the show. Really, not very mysterious at all, and way more sentimental than the show has ever been.

Interesting twist with Keith's situation in his bid for sheriff, but the Veronica plot tonight was really feeble. You can tell that the writers' hearts just aren't in these stand alone episodes.

THE SHIELD, as always, riveting from beginning to end, and now that Shane has come clean about what happened to Lem, another additional layer of tension has been added to a show where the tension is already almost unbearable.

Basically, what I did was remove the backbone ... then took out the cartilage separating the breasts.

Sounds like a scene from Nip/Tick

Crunchy Cow = Roast beef, sprouts, cucumber and cream cheese on a wheat roll (6" like Subway)

When it comes to sandwiches, they can leave the sprouts in Brussels.
