Re: Recently viewed films

Dark Knight - incredible work, beautifully filmed. Heath Ledgers performance is the pivot point that makes the film great. He did what Jack did not do (although it was not within the purview for Jack to reinvent the Joker outside of a comic book character). Ledger made the Joker real, tangible, aliv...

Say What?

What does this mean? From Barack's autobiography "Dreams From My Father", where he is citing the impact that Malcom X's autobiography had on him. He said that this particular passage "spoke to him." One line in particular "stayed with me," he says. "He spoke of a w...

"Missing You" - John Waite ( I just booked him for an 80's show I'm running in Anaheim in December). He is one of those guys who you can't remember any of his hits except this one, but when he gets on stage, he as a number of recognizable songs fromhis stints in the Babys, Bad English, and...

Re: Happy America Day!

Damn Proud to be an American. This day, and everyday. The global philanthropy of the USA far exceeds the negativism and revisionists view that we should be ashamed as a country. While I love that I can disagree vehemently with government and not be decapitated, and I recognize the mistakes of the co...

I am certain that many of his traits are embodied in you and will be passed on to your children. He lives through you, them, and your progen...

The epitome of objectivity in newscasting. A Democrat, he defined "fair and balanced" while others use it as a slogan. I can't recall a better prepared interviewer. Puts others to shame. And while he was equally feared and admired in DC, he was, evidently, universally liked. A real person ...

Amazingly, I inadvertantly spelled Obama's first name wrong. The reason I have not mentioned who I will vote for is that all candidates are omitted from contention. I can never vote for Barack because I don't trust him, doubt that he can serve a single term, and worry about his foreign policy plan. ...

Your set list is accurate, Woz, and a pleasure to meet you as well. The scene depicted above with Sting was a nice bit (clearly the bugs have not taken over). But Sting did a lot of his patented oh-ay-oh chanting type stuff at the end of Alison that kind of threw Elvis, who sort of did a reprise of ...

Great commercial : "Excuse me, is my acting and direction interrupting your phone call" Tootsie took balls.
