  3. Tom,

    Yep, I've made the move to your new blog home. Each new post comes straight to my in-box so I know when I need to hop over. Thanks for the reminder, though.

  5. I visited several blogs but the audio quality for audio songs existing at this web
    site is truly wonderful.

  6. Aw, come on, you're allowed to call it a "soap" rather than a "daytime drama"! You can even go old school and call it a "soap opera" if you want! There's no shame in it! The term was coined sometime in the 1930s because radio daytime dramas were usually sponsored by soap companies such as Proctor and Gamble, and that eventually carried over to television. (As for the "opera" part, I guess that because of all the unfortunate things the characters go through, just like in an opera. As Bugs Bunny once queried, "What do expect in an opera? A happy ending?") Although the days of a TV show having a single sponsor are mostly long gone, the commercials shown during the few soaps still on the air are still mostly soap companies. Well, detergent companies, but that's a form of soap, right? And anyway, if someone looks down on the genre--and I don't think they should--that person is going to look down on it whether you call it a soap opera or a light bulb opera or a paper clip opera or a catalytic converter opera. Calling it a "daytime drama" isn't going to change anybody's mind.

    I'm struck by the difference in videos of the two girls groups, despite the similarities (to my ears) of the music. Girlicious seems to be going for total fantasy--always the case when grown women dress up like Catholic school girls--whereas Mis-teeq decides to go for the gritty, urban milieu look, at least initially. It's also ironic that Mis-teeq is a U.K. band. I mean, I never been to London, but that's an awful lot of sunlight, big gas-hogging cars, and low-rent American chain stores and billboards in that "Roll On"/"This Is How We Do It" video! Everybody wants to capitalize on American glamour, even the Brits.

    Oh, wait! I just reread what you wrote. There's two videos, one of which is for American consumption. Then can I assume what looks like it was taped straight outa Compton is the one the for American consumption? Or maybe it IS for the UK crowd, and the U.S. one shows the changing of the guard. Anyway, back to my original point before I forget it, Mis-teeq is grit, and Girlicious is fantasy. But both are good.

    As for the clothing, ever see a "slut walk"? The idea being no matter how a girl dresses, "no" means "no"? And besides, the McGuire Sisters are showing a good deal of skin. Somehow it's all right if you call it an "evening gown".
