LaBelle

I'm watching the Bonnie Hunt show right now and her musical guest today is Labelle. Man, those women still have pipes! I can't believe that Patti Labelle is 64 years old. All three of those women look amazing and it's inspirational that they're still doing what they love. Patti sang the National Anthem at one of the World Series games this year. I bet that was cool.

Sheldon’s Shirts

The Big Bang Theory is my most favorite show ever! I love the geeky t-shirts they have the cast wearing on that show. I've been meaning to (for a while now) figure out where all those great shirts come from. Well, somebody did all the work for me. Check out SheldonShirts.com. Not only have they tracked down where you can get some of those cool shirts that Sheldon (and Leonard) wear, but some of the other cool things that have been in the show. They also have links to get other great geeky stuff, too. Thanks guys at SheldonShirts!

In a related vein, you can follow the show's characters on Twitter. It's kind of amusing. Here's links to their profiles: Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, Raj, Howard and Leslie Winkle. Funny stuff!

Damn It

I just found out that Apocalyptica is going to be playing at the Ogden Theater on Monday night and I don't know of anybody that would go with me. Damn, damn, damn it!

Current Favorite Song

Even though I'm still kind of upset that 101.5 FM here in Denver changed its music format from the likes of Sinatra and The Brian Setzer Orchestra, I'm finding that I'm listening to it more and more because they really do have an extremely diverse playlist (especially compared to the likes of Alice 105.9 or KPBI 106.7). It's the station where I first heard my previous fav: Panic at the Disco's "Nine in the Afternoon". My most favorite tune at the moment is "Love Me Dead" by the band LUDO. Even though the lyrics are kind of sad (guy has love/hate relationship with his ex), I love the enthusiasm and melody. After seeing the video, I was even more hooked. The video from their YouTube Podcast in the extended in you want to see it.

Oingo Boingo

I was over reading Electric Venom and Kate had a bit of interesting trivia that I did not know: Oingo Boingo was on The Gong Show!

I was a huge fan of the group in the '80s. I mean, c'mon, I'm a child of the '80s. I danced in the .32 bars to "Goodbye, Goodbye" and "Dead Man's Party." Who didn't love "Weird Science?" I'm also a big fan of Danny Elfman's compositional style. I love the soundtracks he did for Beetlejuice, Batman Returns, not to mention "The Simpsons Theme" from the TV show.

It was their late '70s incarnation, known as The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, that appeared on the show. Check out the footage from The Gong Show in the extended. You certainly can't mistake that it is Danny Elfman with that flaming red hair.

My Spidey Sense

Heh, now I know why I didn't want to go to work yesterday. My intuition must have been warning me that the chick I am having issues with decided to show for a couple of hours. Yeah, she's the last person I want to see on a day I volunteer to do extra work. I had a relatively peaceful 6 hour shift today, though. A lot of my filing in the Archive Room is now caught up.

Depending on how this week goes, I'm going to try to take the whole weekend off next weekend. I have much to do and would really like to have two whole days away from work. Of course, if I don't put any OT in during the week and the weekend is the only time I can get some extra hours, I'll probably take them.

I stopped by the Great American Quilt Factory and found my final piece of fabric I need. w00t! Now I just need to clean up the mess I've made recently in my craft room and get quilting!

When is enough enough? I saw an ad in a magazine today for the new Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. Um, how about Hollywood get off their collective asses and come up with an original move idea. I'm so sick of old stuff being regurgitated. Seriously.

I watched a movie called Surf's Up last night. It was ok, but definitely not one of the better animated movies I've ever seen. I know they were trying to do it in a documentary style, but it was a bad documentary style. I wasn't impressed.

The Big Bang Theory

I haven't been thrilled with much that's on television this season and therefore not terribly saddened by the Hollywood writer's strike, but one show I absolutely love is The Big Bang Theory. Maybe it is the soft spot I have in my heart for geeks or because I am one, but I absolutely love this show!

I first thought the premise was stupid. I only watched it because it was sandwiched in between two other Monday night shows I regularly watch. Here's the premise: Two genius-type guys share an apartment and their world is turned topsy turvy when a pretty blond moves in a across the hall. Stereotypes abound, but I can totally believe the storylines. I've read several reviews of people absolutely hating this show. Maybe it's because they don't know any of these types of people in real life. All I know is, it's one of two shows that I look forward to every week, the other being The Ghost Whisperer.

I'm sure this show will not survive more than a season since I like it so much, though. Seems to be my luck.
