1) Name one "oldie" tune (30+ years old) and one new tune (less than 1 year old) that you've included on any of your current Playlists.
"Sugar, Sugar" - The Archies. "Ruby" - Kaiser Chiefs. Or, as it's known in our house of Wizard of Oz zealots: "Ruby Ruby Ruby Slippers!"
2) On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 as the highest), about how popular is your last name?
10 +++++. Also, I never thought the Charlies Angels jokes would get old but they're wearing thin. Be careful what you wish for.
3) Have any new TV shows grabbed your attention so far this summer?
The Dell’Olios turned me onto "Flight of the Conchords" on HBO. Love it. I've been playing catch up online. The show's humor is frighteningly reminiscent of my brother P -- I'm reminded of his random poems of yore like “I Love to Boot on Chauncy Street” and his mini-documentary on the Cavity Creeps' ill-fated attack on Toothopolis. Good stuff. 2) "The Singing Bee." I had an idea for a show like this three years ago but was too busy birthing babies to flesh it out. My version was called "Extreme Karoake" and did not have the vapid and witless Joey Fatone as a host or any scantilly-clad Honey Bee dancers. Maybe it should have...this show is so excrutiatingly horrible -- it's fantastic. 3) "Scott Baio is 45 and Single" (the horror). It's going to be impossible to stay away from this one for many reasons. First, I don't believe for a minute that this guy wants to get married. Hasn't he been linked to porn stars and playmates for years and years? Second, a friend mentioned that he must not be getting laid as regularly, thus the reality show. I disagreed. No way. While reality shows like this reek of desperation, appearing in one is a huge turn off. Non-aphrodisiac, lady repellent. Turns out, Chachi in Charge is not really single; he's in a semi-committed relationship with some Pam Anderson body double. He's just whoring himself out for the cash. A good career move for Super Stone Jack? Only if his goals are to become a caricature of himself. Wikipedia sums up "Chachi Arcola's" legacy best: "His catchphrase 'Wah wah wah' never caught on."
4) When was the last time you forgot something? What was it, and how long did it take to remember it?
I forgot to pick up Paulie’s OJ at the market this morning. He won’t LET me forget it.
5) When was the last time you forgave someone? Who was it and what for?
This morning. I forgave myself for forgetting the OJ. I love him fiercely but that dear 3-year old needs to get some perspective.
