h-o-r-s-... and me!

wait... SHAQ is joining LEBRON JAMES in cleveland next season?

good luck everyone else in the NBA.

good luck.

michael jackson stands alone.

yesterday we lost a great talent.  RIP MJ.

michael jackson stands alone as the king of pop.  not only has he been a huge influence on the music world, with such hit albums as "off the wall" and "thriller" but he was also an ICON of dance and fashion.  come on, i remember doing the zombie "thriller dance" in my friend's basement in first grade!

and in fact, i think someone recently once bet me $1.00 that i wouldn't moonwalk to the bathroom at beauty bar, and... thanks for the beer money marisa.

here are my personal top five favorite michael jackson songs (in no particular order):
1)  P.Y.T.
2)  scream (and it's $7 million music video)
3)  rock with you
4)  the way you make me feel
5)  billie jean

with a special nod to "will you be there" from the "free willy soundtrack."

thanks for everything michael.  you will be missed.

broadway cares and me...

sunday night was the 19th annual BROADWAY CARES/EQUITY FIGHTS AIDS fundraiser called "broadway bares."  it's a sexy, variety and burlesque show featuring the best of broadway dancers, and a few stars.

this year included appearances by allison janney (the west wing, away we go), sutton foster (shrek: the musical, flight of the conchords), and mo rocca (VH1 best week ever, NPR wait wait, dont tell me).  i volunteered backstage and was fortunate enough to see mo sans shirt.  not bad!

the fleshy event raised a whopping $808,819, which all goes to broadway cares/EFA!  a great success, but still down from last year's $874,372.  is it the economy?  people just don't have the extra cash to donate to such a great cause?

my feeling is, if you don't have the money to donate to your favorite cause (children, animals, cancer research), find a way to donate your time!

don't judge me...

am i the only one watching "i'm a celebrity... get me outta here?"

i think i am but that's okay.  there is nothing else on tv since "gossip girl" ended it's season.

i just wanted to say, years later, that i am officially jumping on the sanjaya band wagon.  i love him.  he is one of the few likeable "characters" on "i'm a celeb."  maybe it's because he hasn't been a supermodel for 20 plus years, or gone through drug rehab yet.

we'll see how this all pans out.  but i'm watching, and rooting for sanjaya.  don't judge me!
