Please Tell me, lamagonzo

that you were making up a funny little story for us, and is not really true-bout Jerry Springer Opera.Otherwise, am quite shocked about how low people can go.

Jerry Springer, The Opera

No catagory could quite get it's hands around this topic so I settled here...

I hate Jerry Springer. A country that can produce Jerry Springer should be banned from the universe! No intelligent life there! The fact that this could be produced as an opera is mind boggling. The fact that people would plunk down bucks to go see it is even more mind boggling. I would hope people would look for more worthy causes to donate to.

So we have people willing to bankroll Jerry Springer, The Opera. For people who never saw this show, here is the concept: Springer has guests who are involved in various taudy situations which they explain when they come on the show. Then Springer introduces a guest who is at the center of their affair. Then there is a fight, usually verbal but sometimes physical also, between the guests. People have actually murdered each other because of Springer. A theme for a show might be: neo-nazi tweekers who screw each other but don't consider themselves gay. You get the idea.

Just when you thought we couldn't possibly deliver another sacrifice to the God of Wretched Excess we bring you: Jerry Springer The Opera!

No Direction Home

the Zohan funny! Just watched Oliver Stone's Bob Dylan movie "No Direction Home" yesterday. Lots of good music. It covers from the beginning of Dylan's career up to when he was in his motorcycle accident and stopped touring for eight years.

Don't Mess With the Zohan!

Adam Sandler should have won some kind of an award for this movie, though not an Oscar. Satire is an interesting way to peek at another culture -- in this case that of the Middle East.

The Watchmen

"The Watchmen" was very, very good... thanks for the tip to my old buddy, What's His Name. Totally different than what I expected (I hated "Sin City" and was afraid I'd have to sit through another version when my son asked me to go see this movie today). Without giving too much away, this movie deals with the failed archetypes of the TV generation and how that part of human nature is part of something even larger (and very real), that has played itself out over many generations, in this version of history. Not sure about the ending though... I'll have to give that some more thought before I score this film.

Once

the movie "Once" is a pretty little musical film with Glen Hansard and Marketa Iglova about an Irish street musician.

Wild man is Wild Strings!

Lead us to the promised land, wild man!

I want to say to my sisters & brothers -
Keep the faith.
When the storm grows and the wind blows,
Blowin' at a steady pace.
When the battle is over & the victory is won
We can all shout together we have overcome!
Talk to the father and the son
When we make it to the promised land!

(I miss you Jerry... hope you made it.)
