SWING GIRLS - (sometime around 2005 ?)




At a showing of this film in NewYork by NEW YORK-TOKYO (2005 I believe)
there was an appearance by the cast. They performed several songs and hung out for a bit as well.
it was fun, the music was tops and it was all terribly adorable

Three Century Old Votes

This is so amazing! I look at her and can't even being to comprehend the stories told to her by her folks. The stories of her own life experiences a century ago. She has lived in 3 different centuries. Today is monumental.

Messages of Hope

Mr. Fairy and friends have made some personal PSAs about voting for Barack Obama. This one I thought very important for the masses to see.

WONDER-FULL


I had the opportunity to attend a WONDER-FULL event for the fourth time!!
What is WONDER-FULL?
WONDER-FULL is a one night party tribute to STEVIE WONDER. You come, you dance, you drink you party, to tunes performed by, written by, or produced by the great STEVIE WONDER. DJ Spinna and Bobbito Garcia ( aka DJ Cucumber Slice) mix and mash some of Stevie Wonder's greatest in a tribute to one of the best artists of all time. So you have a big party, two great DJ's with a SICK collection or rare cuts, covers, and hits, AND they do it in NY and , for the past 3 years, LA !!.
I went twice in NY and now twice here in LA. Loads of fun...

Not only was BROaDY not in attendance, but I, unfortunately, went without a camera of any sort. So, I just had to track down some other record of the event.

Here's some snippets of last years event in LA ( 2007 )
this LINK is from is from SAN FRANCISCO !?

LIFE ON MARS: USA

It is almost come...
LIFE ON MARS !
But there have been changes - Colm Meany (the reason I was going to give the US show a chance, has been replaced by Harvey Keitel. Big name, but... well I'm giving the big name a chance. I'm ready and I'll hold off any judgment untill at least the third episode.

Slap Spear Palin

This is one of those amazing silly things that people come up with to poke fun at other people. And because Ms. Palin named her oldest son Track after one of her favorite activities (track and field), the Sarah Palin Baby Name Generator is brilliance.

Type in the names of your family members and only refer to them as their God given Palin name for a week. Be sure to let me know how that works out.

AGSFB

ALL GIRL SUMMER FUN BAND... Just about as fun too hear as the name indicates. I've stumbled across them a little late though, like always. (yes some band members seen here are already gone) But maybe they're not done just yet.



This reminds me of a time not so long ago when there were 100's of garage bands scattered all over the earth making cool simple music... playing in tiny places... and you could rock out for about 1 minute and 53 seconds per song. You'd have to play the song again because it rocked and wasn't long enough. There were actually girl bands (... oh Elastica!...) with dames in it that were at least a bit more than eye candy... And groups would get up on stage and make you say "they should be on the radio"... I guess all of that is still around... I always DO find out too late though.

Do not laugh... Do not laugh. It's not funny. The Spirit of the Lord has touched Mrs. Jenkins and don't let me catch y'all laughing.

BROaDY, you are my world



Many realities have come to fruition that I never thought would happen in my lifetime. Reality #42: Black people are successfully being impersonated by the Japanese. I repeat. Black people are successfully being impersonated by the Japanese.

p.s. I'm so happy to be blogging with you, BROaDY. You are my world.

I just came across a blog featuring creature crochet work lovingly done by fellow geek and fellow blogger at

LIFE ON MARS

If you're like me (and I know I am) , you are a middle of the road TV anglophile. And, being a bit of a TV anglophile you have caught some british shows, liked some, hated some, and loved some to the point where you want to tell all of your friends about it. But no one really listens to you. So they've never seen the original OFFICE, they don't call the BIONIC WOMAN, "ZOE" or know that SANFORD AND SON was a remake of a british show. Then things like COUPLING happen and all you can do is wince in pain and say those words that you know will drive people crazy... "You know, the original british show was better-". Hey, you like to give credit where credit is due.
Ok, I am alone in this. But now, to the point.
LIFE ON MARS...
Life On Mars, a pretty good british show that I did not catch the entire run of. Great if you like cop shows - great if your a sci-fi fan... and it's being remade for US audiences (like the OFFICE... and ugh COUPLING) Yes, another American remake of a good brit show is on the horizon and I am going to give it a chance. This one being chosen for a remake, surprised me in that it was a very "english" show. I mean, it's about a brit cop that goes back to the 70's. But it's 70's ENGLAND which is a bit different than the US. The title of the show even refers to the old DAVID BOWIE song from that period which was probably a bigger hit there than here, and is featured over and over again in the shows soundtrack. (no I didn't get sick of it 'cause they threw it on at the right times) Well I guess you just do the more familiar US take on the '70's and you're good to go. But what I noticed is that the commercial did not have the BOWIE song in it. It did have a different 70's song that may be a bit more familiar... I'll have to come across the commercial again. It should be good. (maybe too much like the cop that lives forever show)... I'm just going to wait and see...
hey wait a minute who's in the US remake?
Jason O'mara... (IRISH) Colm Meany...(IRISH) Rachelle LefévreR... (canadian) wait are they going to do a show overseas? Irish version for the US... or like the cop that won't die will they all be playing americans... (yeah that dude is a brit too- he was in BAND OF BROTHERS with a flawless american accent... and hmmm, just like that cat from HOUSE who used to be in BLACKADDER - but I digress)
holy ----- I'm going to watch this stupid show...even if it's just for Colm Meany ! Why is there a cast of IRISH dudes playing LA cops? Boston cops maybe...  <>




After the news of a US remake of the BBC hit, LIFE ON MARS, I decided to find the old series and watch the entire run ( I realized that I had only seen 3 episodes) . I did, and It kicks ass... (up until the end) That would be obsession #1.
My next obsession is tracking down the music featured in the show. There you have obsession #2.
One stand out so far is -EVERYBODY GETS TO THE MOON - by the THREE DEGREES... and that is the third obsession at this moment.


This is what I get for not watching all of the classic films that I'm 'sposta. If I had seen this I would already have known that this scene from THE FRENCH CONNECTION is the one that they mirror in LIFE ON MARS when GENE and SAM go in to investigate the gambling club. They use this same song as a tribute to this movie as well.



And here is a taste of the series.. put together by a fellow fan and posted on YOUTUBE

LIL' TRACHTENBERG

THANKS TO Jyvonne Haskin
I was introduced to the TRACHTENBURG FAMILY SLIDESHOW PLAYERS... these is them-


well... that was them a while ago.
As you would expect... and as I have said before... I find out about things when they are on the way out, the band has broken up, the hype has fizzled out, everyone says "I liked them before they fell off", and it's time is done. And more to the point -- the novelty of a cute little kid singing with her pop can't last that long can it? not that you'd get sick of it, but the kid won't be a little kid anymore. and then THAT SH-- IS OVER, SON ! but if we're lucky

click the picture... check out the link


so on to the TRACHTENBURGS THE NEXT PHASE

I get it - they're setting up for the next thing that the lil' one can run with for the next few years. rachel phase 2.

Short Circus rocks the Portishead spooky sound... or rather the other way 'round.

EASTENDER COMMERCIALS

I love Eastenders and I watch the old episodes that they have here on PBS. (They are only up to the 2000/2001 season here on the station that I watch) But what is missing are theBBC Eastenders commercials and trailers, that are works of art in their own right. They have a lot of fun with them and they have a different feel from the show altogether.
