Don’t you just LOVE my glamorous new web site? Â It combines the things that I love most: me, my music, and gold (see the background). Â My really good friend and righteous composer Stephanie Smith designed the hell out of this thing. Â Kudos and thanks!
Getting the content ready for this site, I’ve been out of the blogging game for like a week. Â Just a few things:
1) Closure to the Paavo JÃ¤rvi debÃ¢cle.
2) More gossip about the Rufus Wainwright opera. Â Burrrn. Â My hopes are still high though!
And finally, there are shows on YouTube now. Â Great idea, but boy, so many issues. Â For one, could somebody please TURN THE VOLUME UP?? Â I’ve got my speakers as high as they will go, and I can still hardly hear the Jack Benny Program. Â Do they know who their audience is for that show? Â It’s people who need it a little louder.
Also, isn’t it so disappointing when you see shows from your childhood that you adored and it turns out they really, really suck? Â Case in point: ALF. Â I guess I shouldn’t really admit that I ever liked it, but I definitely remember thinking it was just swell. Â I really hope that they don’t put up “Small Wonder” and “Mr. Belvedere”, because I have a feeling I might be crushed.
Ok, this is the LAST thing, but I also watched an episode of He-Man. Â When I was 4, He-Man was basically the beginning and end of my world. Â Despite that, I had really forgotten even the most basic elements of the show and I must say that on review I am confused. Â And I mean confused. Â It’s amazing what slips by you when you’re a kid.
