Electoral Compass

Well, I'm not really suprised by where I landed - however, I am suprised that I am more closely aligned to Obama than Clinton. That is o.k., though....I am flexible enough to make sure that Ms. Clinton hears my point of view.

If you look at my brother's site you will see we are almost polar opposites. So opposite, if you circled the graph we would almost be touching....intresting, huh?

So thanks again to Charissa....she always has some great ideas! Take the test and see where you land.


My Store is Open for Business

Well, it started out as a favor to a friend...and will soon blossom (hopefully) into a full-fledged side sure to Come visit my store on CafePress!.

(Thank you Charissa for the idea!)

Currently there are only six items available, 4 of which are exclusive to my friend Chuck. He is a personal trainer (and was a finalist to be on the new Big Brother 9 - but didn't make the final cut - shame too cause he would have made it interesting.)

The other two items are political buttons. Basically, I figured I could sell these forever since it will take that long to fix what the Bush adminstration destroyed.

So take a look....let me know what you think .....ideas are always welcome.....and purchases are nice too!

I'm Extremely Disappointed

Ok, first - Big Brother Sucks! The hottest guy is nothing but a sweat bucket...the other guys....well, not worth my time. I was so excited about having an extra season of Big Brother - but now not so sure!

On my second disappointment ......Jericho didn't do so well in the ratings last night...though it managed a second place finish in the Key Demo 18-49.....over at Marc Berman's television blog....he wrote:

"Season two of Jericho dipped slightly from Big Brother, with 7.15 million viewers (#3) and a second-place 2.5/ 7 among adults 18-49 at 10 p.m. But given it did not have to face American Idol, the results should have been better. Keep in mind that Jericho debuted with a considerably stronger 11.66 million viewers and a 3.4/10 in the demo on Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. ET. CBS might have been better off airing Jericho earlier."

Honestly - I think Jericho will be ok........but it is hard to get people back to CBS after watching Idol...... Lots of promotion (during key shows CSI, etc...) should do the trick - I only hope that CBS is smart enough to do that!!!!

So that is all I have to say.


Jericho is BACK!

My favorite show is back and it DID NOT disappoint. I can't wait to see how well Jericho did in the ratings!! Smart move not to put in on during IDOL (even my old stand-by Big Brother had to take a backseat to IDOL.)......

Stay tuned - I will give you the (hopefully) good news on the ratings tomorrow!

Music From The Edge: Corey Hart

"I wear my Sunglasses at night"....singing this at the top of my lungs as I wore my sunglasses at night swinging on the swings of the resort at Lake Milton with my friend Jeff. Life was so innocent then.....

This song meant a lot to me growing up. In tribute to this great song - and fantastic LP, I perused my collection to come upon the first release from Corey Hart titled "First Offense."

Of Canadian grit, Mr. Hart added "Sunglasses at Night" at the last minute, to his debut LP in 1983. He was so popular by the release of his second LP "Boy in the Box" with the #3 Billboard Hit "Never Surrender" he was offered the role of Marty McFly in "Back to the Future." Corey turned down this offer - and the rest is history. Corey's career began its downward trend after "Boy in the Box," - maybe he should have taken on that role, who knows what would have happened?

Corey continues to write music, and though he now is in the background continues to influence the masses, including writing and producing for fellow Canadian Celine Dion. tribute to 1983....and wearing sunglasses at is his Corey Hart's debut LP, "First Offense."

"First Offense" peaked at #31 on the Billboard 200. The single "Sunglasses At Night" peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100, the follow-up single "It Ain't Enough" peaked at #17 on the Billboard Hot 100.
