Let's Throw Everything At The Disco Ball And See What Sticks

What's worse?  Rick Dees' creepy mustache? Alice and Rip Taylor in the duck costumes?  Mike Brady's lack of rhythm?

I can see why Eve Plumb (Jan) opted out of this.

Worse Than The Phantom Menace ?

We all know the flogging George Lucas incurred when he released his first prequel to the Star Wars saga.  Not since Dylan went electric did so many die hard fans cry "Judas".  The Star Wars saga is more than a collection of movies, to some it is a way of life.  So it comes a bit as a surprise that no one ever brings up the Star Wars Holiday Special.  

Shown once and never released on video, except for a few versions on You Tube.  This Christmas special is so bad, I can't even recommend it for shits and giggles.  It is truly THAT BAD.  A summary of that special could be found HERE.  Luckily, I have found a better substitute.  Of course it's Osmond related.  Set your faces to stun and gaze upon this spectacular mess.  Stick around for the "special guests" and dancing Stormtroopers. 

Worse than The Phantom Menace ?

Who's Ready For The Rapture ?

Only 2 days left.  How do plan on spending these last hours?  If you're like me you are scouring the web for live recordings of The Stone Roses at Spike Island.

Is it time to forgive Ashlee Simpson ?

In the early morning hours of October 24, 2004 Ashely Simpson confidently climbed on the music stage of Saturday Night Live.  She had already performed her "hit" Pieces of Me earlier in the show and was now geared to perform her follow up Autobiography.  Back from commercial Jude Law introduces the young up and and comer.  She has a lot to prove.  Especially to those who say she is riding the wave of success caused by her older tsunami of a sister Jessica.  The crowd hushes. The music starts.  Someone, probably the drummer, hits the wrong button and the rest is history, much like her career.  Although she later tried to reboot herself as "new waver" the hits never materialize.  Compounding her downfall was an ill advised sojourn at the new Melrose Place.  

But what was her crime?  Why did audiences turn on her so quick?  Lip syncing?  Pshaw !  Lady Miss Spears lip syncs all the time.  And now with auto tuning, no one is even trying to sing.  

Should we forgive Ashley for a bad case of "acid reflux" ?  I do.
