That and this

COMMON SENSE WOULD TELL ME NOT TO TRY AND CONTINUE...
I should probably have heeded my man Pete Townshend's words, but I'm a glutton for punishment, I guess, as I currently view Disc 2 of the Captain & Tennille DVD thing, and it's every bit as putrid as Disc 1 so far.  Opening number on the first episode features C&T doing the Three Dog Night classic "Celebrate" with El Capitan wearing this bizarre orange tuxedo/ostrich feather boa get-up that even Elton John wouldn't have touched, with Tennille wearing an equally gaudy pink gown get-up, while orange-clad dancers circled the stage.  What was this show's obsession with the color orange?

I rented Disc 2 mainly to see Heart's appearance, which apparently is on bloody Disc 3—oy!  Oh well, it's still kind of a hoot to see The Sylvers doing "Hot Line"—man, those were some big-ass afros!  Chaka Khan isn't too hard on the eyes on here, either.  "M*A*S*H" must not have been paying Loretta Swit worth a damn back then, because she made two different appearances on "C&T", and would you believe, even Muhammad Ali was on this show?  Right now as I type, Dick Clark is on there playing Clark Kent.  It's all like this surreal dream...

BOOK ‘EM, DANNO!
Regarding Scooter Libby’s conviction yesterday—yer outta there!  This is just the first domino to fall, too.  And that's all I have to say about that.  For now...


NANCY GRACE IN ACTING ROLE…
…on "Law & Order", playing a TV personality—wow, what a stretch!  I guess that's the best she can do—it would be too big of a stretch for that helmet-haired bee-yatch to portray a human being...

CLASSIC MISHEARD LYRIC #13
"Isn't She Lovely?"--STEVIE WONDER (1976) "Isn't she lovely, made from love?" I always thought Stevie's daughter was named "Mabel Love", and that's why he sang "Isn't she lovely, Mabel Love."  Oh dopey me...

GOOD ONE FROM LENO
Caught Jay Leno’s "headlines" bit last night, and he had a funny one involving a sale ad for Mrs. Paul’s "Dreaded" Fish Sticks!  Sometimes there IS truth in advertising…

WORLD'S DUMBEST SONG LYRICS OF ALL-TIME, VOL. IV
Here's a couple more that came to mind...

"Elenore"—THE TURTLES (1968) "You’re my pride and joy, et cetera…"  The only Rock ‘N’ Roll song I know of that has "etc." in the lyrics!  Gee, you must be really enamored with this chick with talk like that!  Why not throw in a couple blah, blah, blahs and a yadda, yadda, yadda or two?  Ad infinitum…

"Smoke On The Water"--DEEP PURPLE (1972) "Some stupid with a flare gun burned the place to the ground."  Stupid is as stupid does—"Stupid" is an adjective, not a noun!  I can't believe Ian Gillan couldn't have come up with a stronger word here—dumbass, bonehead, idiot, weirdo, drunkard, jackass, nutbag, firebug—anything but stupid!

Two things, I have a bootleg (shhhh!!!) DVD of The Johnny cash Show's musical guests. Joni Mitchell, Dylan, The Guess who, etc. Incredible stuff.
Each one of the guests would do a song and then join Johnny later in the show.
Wow, hearing Johnny sing "Share the Land" is worth the price alone.
I can only imagine what the Heart sisters looked like..yum.

uhh...if Steve Miller can ryhme taxes and facts is, well them lay off my boy Ian...
