Sunday Funnies

We missed the Aguilera screech. In fact, we went to another cable channel altogether - Fox was oh, so nauseating (and our feed was "fat" - too wide for our t.v.).
Way to go, Packers!

Ha! Love the last one with Palin. Oh, so true.

Great, great funnies!

I do have to wonder about the Xtina factor. I mean if I knew I was going to sing at the biggest event (even bigger that Egypt's protests), I would definitely review the lyrics.

Or is she above that?

00dozo: It's a shame really. She can sure belt out a song when she wants to. But when she screws up the words she loses all credibility.

Quirks: You'd think so, wouldn't you. Oh, well, she's still better than Roseanne Barr.
It would be nice if some of these pseudo-talented divas would spend less time butchering the melody with their runs and embellishments and more time learning the words to the song.

Makes me sick. It's a majestic song. Just sing it.

Chris:What is it with these celebrities? Me, me, me. You know when Jose Feliciano sang the anthem years ago people thought he was just making fun of himself when he sang "Jose can you see?".

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
