So, in an effort to share all those thoughts and opinions at once, here it is:
Michael Jackson's death- Off the Wall was a superior album to Thriller and Bad. Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough was his best song. I am glad Bubbles the monkey is okay. And, I am really glad I am not in Los Angeles today.
Farrah's death- I feel old.
Billy Mays- Don't trust a product on television he was not hawking. In other words, no matter what- the Snuggie is not a good product. If it was, there would be footage of Mays wearing one.
Andy Roddick- you won my Wimbledon, friend. Plus, as Bill Simmons said... you are worth $50 million and are married to a swimsuit model. Buck up, little camper.
The Southern Baptist kerfuffles surrounding their convention, etc.- Oh, you guys still around?
Sarah Palin- if this whole thing is about making mad cash while you are the most marketable since you have lots of kids and a baby with severe needs that will cost lots of money, Go for it. I respect that, more than you can imagine. If you want to be the Conservative Oprah, good for you. Milk that cash cow until it is dry. You would be a welcome respite on television from the crazy Republican babes Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter. You may not be as smart, but you have accomplished something beyond being a mouth in a dress. If this is about positioning yourself to run for president, please give it a rest.
Mark Sanford- follow your priest's advice, go into a more silent mode. And a note to all politicians, just because Clinton had multiple affairs and became President, does not make this a template to be followed.
The latest Wilco album- "a sonic shoulder to cry on" as the song says. Much better than the last album (okay, that is not hard).
The latest Moby album- Nice. Seriously. I had written you off.
The latest Regina Spektor album- my kids love it and it continues to grow on me. I think you need to buy this one.
