A little television sampler:
I watched some of the World Idol thing last night. It was basically a showdown between all the pop idol competitions winners. Kelly Clarkson represented the US. Some dude from Belgium or Norway or something won. I keep calling him Hans Blix since I can't remember his real name. Anyway, Hans looked like a combination of Philip Seymour Hoffman, the lead singer from the movie "The Commitments", and the kid Corky from "Life Goes On." He got the most votes from around the world doing a karaoke-style cover of "Beautiful Day" by U2. Go Corky!
My favorite part of the Michael Jackson interview with Ed Bradley was when Michael said he was locked for 45 minutes in a dirty bathroom with walls covered with "doo-doo feces." Michael said that the guards kept asking how he liked the smell. "It's alright," said the King of Doo Doo Feces, maintaining his tougher than leather exterior.
I know some people love "Shawshank Redemption" although I rate it slightly better than tolerable. Why the hell is this movie on 40 times a week on TNT? Don't they have any other movies? I made two independent movies that are marginally interesting. Put one of those on for Christ's sake. If I have to see Tim Robbins pained expression as the innocent man or Morgan Freeman as the noble inmate one more time, I'm going to smear my bathroom with doo-doo feces. Is that alright?
