Okay, for lack of another topic to write about, here are some of my favorite things:
KT Tunstall is on the top of my artist list
John Mayer is a close second
Sheryl Crow is right behind John
I have to admit, I’m also stuck in the 80′s and 90′s for my general song listening preference
Out of Africa is hands down my most favorite movie. I watch it at least 3 times per year — and cry every time.
I never tire of Office Space. What a hoot
Pixar is at the top of my studio list. I think I own everything that Pixar has produced. BTW, I’m very disappointed in Pixar for doing a P.C. breast reduction on the mermaids depicted in “KnickKnack.” Thank goodness I still have a VHS tape with the original busty version.
Eric and I never watched the West Wing when it was on broadcast TV. We started watching it on DVD recently. Wow, I can’t believe we missed this incredible creation.
On the Sorkin bandwagon is also Sports Night. What a shame that show was too smart of the general network audience. Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip was also a very enjoyable and smart cancelation from Sorkin.
On the game show front… If haven’t see Cash Cab you’re missing out on great television. Ben Bailey is a cab driver who asks general knowledge questions to the “fares” who happen to be riding in his cab to their destination. I keep watching, hoping to catch one of my NYC friends. It could happen!
Okay, my middle aged weakness is Dancing with the Stars. I have only been watching for the 3 latest seasons. Great show. I love that fact that these celebs (granted they’re there to promote themselves) don’t get anything other than bragging rights and a really tacky trophy. If someone tells me they are paid I will cease to believe in anything good and wholesome again.
Comments from around that time:
Did you used to live in Lake Arrowhead? I’m the preachers kid. If you are who I think you are, you, me, Nancy Palmer, Mike Newcombe, Jack Severns and Renee Roberts all hung out together.
