Wow, once again, it's been too long since I've written anything here. I'm sure you've all (all four of you) found other things to occupy your time. I finally found something I thought was screaming to be shared. Two things, actually. First is this: the new singer for Journey, a man from the Philippines named Arnel Pineda. He sound so much like Steve Perry, long estranged from the band, that it gave me chills when I heard him sing. And he has a touching story of survival as an orphan in his native country that makes this feel like he's getting the opportunity of a lifetime as well, which is cool. Check out this snippet of him being talked about on Ellen a few months back:
On another topic, I watched Million Dollar Password this week, and was entertained, mostly by Neil Patrick Harris, but also sad that the game was not really Password, but rather an amalgam of $100,000 Pyramid, Password and Millionaire. Why can't we just have a nice, old fashioned game show set with slightly slicker production values? Oh no, we have to look we're taking a journey into space with Captain Regis at the helm, or it's simply not a 21st century game show! Please. I miss the days when everyone wore suits by Botany 500 and got Turtle Wax and Rice a Roni as conciliation prizes. I'm a little afraid of what the sets for Celebrity Family Feud and the new Gong Show are going to look like, but I will certainly watch and find out. I love me some classic game shows!!
