A “rock-pop-electronic-dance thing?”

So Adam Lambert is kind of torn about being the front-man of Queen if the position were offered to him because he is interested in doing his own thing. Understandable, but let’s see: Be a part of a world tour, instantly putting you in front of millions of fans, or hope you can put out a “rock-pop-electronic-dance thing” album that might sell a few copies. If I’m Brian May I forget about offering him the gig because he’s already being difficult.

Why Does Exodus Tyson Dying Make Me Sad?

I don’t know why I felt sad when I heard about Mike Tyson’s daughter, Exodus, and her getting injured by a hanging cord, but the story doesn’t have a happy ending either as it has been announced that she died. I guess it’s just sad when you hear of a 4-year old who dies too young from an accident that can happen in any household.

And Your New American Idol is…

Kris Allen. Yup, in an upset to everyone but me (go ahead, ask my girlfriend, I told her Kris would win), Kris Allen beat Adam Lambert to take the title of “American Idol” this year. It probably bodes better for Adam to not win, it can keep him a little more low-key as any other stories about him might come out, and he seems aggressive enough to push his own agenda while the soft-spoken Kris will probably need the entire Idol publicity machine to reach gold, or platinum as it were.

Best Wishes Amy Mickelson

Lots of women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day, so why does it take a famous person’s wife getting the disease to bring greater focus? In any case, best wishes to Amy Mickelson, wife of Phil Mickelson (he’s the pro golfer dude). Good job to Phil for taking the time off to support his wife.

Patrick Swayze is Dead. Not.

A radio station Twittered that Patrick Swayze is dead, and the world believed it. Low and behold he isn’t dead, so says a spokeswoman. The funniest part of the story, though, is that messages left for Twitter for a comment were not returned. What comment would Twitter actually have to say about it?

My Name is Earl gets the boot.

Looks like people were tired of the big mustache and big-busted blond because the folks at NBC said they don’t want “My Name is Earl” back. Looks like Crabman can put his hair back to normal. Maybe Jay Leno will have a new sitcom in its place because it’s slowly looking like NBC is putting all of it’s eggs in the Leno basket. Hope they don’t go rotten.

Chicago: We Got Expensive Gas

Just a helpful travel tip that if you plan to drive near Chicago anytime soon, you might want to have a full tank of gas as you make your way through The Windy City because we’ve got the most expensive gas. If only we could harness the awesome power of the burrito!

NBC renews Chuck! Praise the Lord!

I’m a big fan of the TV show “Chuck,” and of the hot blond, Yvonne Strahovski, (though I’d be a happier fan if she got naked), so I was worried it wouldn’t get renewed for the Fall. Thank the heavens above, and a “Save Chuck” campaign, because it’s coming back for at least a lucky 13 episodes. Yay!

The World Loves Tom Hanks!

Neither rain, nor snow, nor the Catholic Church could keep the world from seeing “Angels & Demons,” so Tom Hanks gets another #1 movie, especially worldwide. “Star Trek” did pretty awesome, too, especially for its 2nd weekend out, but can an Ahnold-less “Terminator: Slavation” dethrone both of them next week? Only a week will tell.

Miss California, You’re Still Hired!

Donald Trump has spoken and Miss California will stay Miss California, and will not give up her crown to Almost Was Miss California.  Yup, Carrie Prejean, whom none of us would give a damn about if she didn’t say something about marriage to Perez Hilton, keeps her crown, and Donal Trump also had no problem with her semi-nude photos.  Well, duh!?!
