Bruce Springsteen at his Rock HOF admission in 1999: "You wanna be like him, but you can't. The night I met Clarence, he got up on stage; a sound came out of his horn that seemed to rattle the glasses behind the bar, and threatened to blow out the back wall. The door literally blew off the club in a storm that night,. But there was something else. Something happened when we stood side by side; some energy, some unspoken story
The E Street Band!
The E Street Band!
The heart-stopping, pants-dropping, house-rocking, earth-shaking, booty-quaking, Viagra-taking, love-making -
Le-gen-dary E - Street - Band!
Guess you know I will miss him.
Obama said Trump has made the tough decisions, for instance firing Gary Busey on "Celebrity Apprentice" instead of Meatloaf. "These are the types of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir." Obama also showed a photoshop White House where Trump had turned the home into a casino.
Obama thinks now The Donald can focus on serious issues, like if the moon landings were faked or "where are Biggie and Tupac?"
Said Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Anchor Seth Myers about Trump, "Donald Trump often talks about running as a Republican, which is surprising, I just assumed he was running as a joke."
So Trump walked into the Lions Den and was dispatched easily. After drinking in two weeks of publicity in demanding the President's Birth Certificate, he had to wonder at some point what would happen should Obama actually produce the document ...how would he be mocked ? Now, he knows, up close and personal, and how gratifying for him to be brought to within a few feet of Obama himself to do the skewering.
Calvi is known for her intensity as a musician along with a combination of sensous and seductive live show. She is known for a different guitar style where she hits the strings in a circular motion, as opposed to strumming.
Songs like like “Desire” have a “melodic motif that keeps on building and building “ metaphorically. It keeps adding instruments until it’s “Bursting” at the end. “Playing live is a fulfilling experience for me because it allows me to be fearless and strong”
This is just the start of a great moment when music needed something new.

I know when we all think of Sarah Palin impersonations, we first think of Tina Fey, and deservedly so. She looks spot on and has some of the mannerisms down pat. BUT …seeing Gina Gershon for Funny or Die do Palin puts a great spin on it …hard to pick a favorite.
Seriously...a REPUBLICAN group of legislators MANDATED a health care covenant, while on a national level, opposes anything that resembles mandate as socialism. Really ? Really ? Seriously ?
Here is the Washington Post Article

Regis Philbin announces retirement today, June 18th 2011, saying "This is my last year on the show." He indicated that it would be late summer or fall before the end came, and no word on whether or not they will try to get a new Regis with Kelly. Regis Francis Xavier Philbin has been hosting talk and game shows since the 1950's. He is sometimes called the Hardest Working Man in Show Business.
He is the Guinness world record holder for most time in front of a television camera. He went to Notre Dame and always talked of his love for the Fighting Irish on the show. Perhaps his biggest claim to fame was when the game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire enjoyed HUGE ratings in 1999. He was also the original of America's Got Talent before being replaced by Jerry Springer. Regis will be irreplaceable on American TV.
Jared Lee Loughner is a terrorist plain and simple. Yes, he is completely disturbed, but then again so are the terrorists we most commonly think of as being of middle eastern descent with hatred for America. I am always a bit perplexed that terrorism doesn't happen as often here in America as it does worldwide. No doubt, in reading the incoherent youtube postings from the shooter, he's simply not living in the same world as the rest of us. Now today so many want to link the partisan rhetoric as one of the causes, even though no connection to the Limbaughs of the world has yet been proven...and I will just say I doubt it is proven to be the instigator here. The 22 year old is just a mess mentally, plain and simple. The tragedy is what it is, like the Virginia Tech shootings, one guy who somebody should have seen some warning signs about. It can unfortunately happen anywhere with any disturbed mind with or without political motivation. It unfortunately can't be prevented unless someone intervenes before a tragedy like this happens.
While I WANT to see a tempering of partisan political rhetoric on the airwaves, I doubt this incident is related and I doubt this will fix it. In fact, Limbaugh and those of his ilk will feast on the ratings they get this week while fending off the accusations that they are the cause of this tragedy. Don't blame free speech ...I doubt anything can be done to prevent the real cause, which is insanity hitting home.
