GOODBYE JANUARY AND FEBRUARY.

I am proud of Prince Harry. I think he is a wonderful young man who is brave, courageous, and down-to-earth to have gone over to Afghanistan to fight crazy fanatic terrorists. Princess Di had two wonderful sons indeed, although William is starting to age prematurely and grossly beginning to resemble that oogly father of his. Now Al-Qaeda can't wait to attack Britain again. Oh bloody hell!

The Miguel Bos
é 2-hour concert this past Friday night was terrific! He sang a good array of his many diverse songs from the past 30 years, but really focused on tracks from his very good 2002 album Sereno. That was very enjoyable as that CD is heavy on the electric guitar/progressive sound in a way. Speaking of electric guitar, the guy playing it was kinda hot; bald and shirtless throughout the show! Miguel looks good for someone in his early 50s, but I could see a bit of a gut; Madonna would never allow this to happen! LOLOL! The medley of 70s hits was way cool. AW! Packed house of loyal rabid fans, and the amount of very queeny gay Latino men was FABULUTH! LMAO!

And now my two cents on this American Idol. I like the show and watch it here and there every season. I'm not a loyal rabid fan, but I do check it out a bit and I gotta say I am most pleased with the amount of Latinos representing this season. THAT BEING SAID HOWEVER, there is this one performance that stood out just last week, apparently by that young gayish Hispanic kid, David Archuleta when he sang Lennon's "Imagine", and while I must say it was quite good, I wasn't on the verge of tears like that nutjob Paula Abdul was. Why must every new singer, especially the ones on that show now sing in that gospel kind-of-way? WHAT GIVES MAN?! Is that the only way people have to sing now to be considered good? WHOA OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH YEEAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! GOD PLEASE NO MORE! I've had it with new talent overdoing this! Many of my close friends agree mind you. This sounding black thang is getting on my nerves. Leave it to Alicia Keys or the R&B professionals, and stop it with this incessant gospel sound! It's making my ears bleed! Besides, John Lennon never sang like that, and he stands as one of the most gifted haunting original voices ever! And a damn fine genius songwriter too! SO THERE! You don't have to sing gospely to be good I say! Sing and be an original! Thanks!

Two good movies on DVD to recommend! First, a French WWII Nazi film not just on the plight of the Jews, but gays as well called Un amour à taire (A Love To Hi
de). Yes, this topic has been done to death and is a bit too depressing, but it was a well-made and very engrossing picture! I SAY DAMN! And I rarely watch dem Westerns, but sometimes ya can't resist stories about the 1860s Wild West, and yoichi had mentioned how good 3:10 to Yuma was and I did enjoy it. The cast is real good: Christian Bale, Russell Crowe, Peter Fonda, etc. are as always competent actors, but watch for Ben Foster, in a powerful role as Charlie! WOW! This is an actor that will certainly give us something to talk about in the future, and whom has already done quite a few cool roles. He is terrific; one mean, cruel, almost androgynous, sexy son-of-a-bitch! He's got such piercing powerful eyes! BEN FOSTER! GOT IT?! How did they not nominate this guy for Best Supporting Actor? He nearly steals the movie in my opinion.

And in my opinion, I need to get some shuteye

Poor old Harry!
I had him on my blog a couple of days ago, too...
What a LIFE he must've had... if he can say a soldier's life amongst the frozen mountains, poppy-fields and dust-storms of Afghanistan is the most NORMALITY he's ever had in his life!?!? I mean what a life!!
And it's such a contrary highlighting of the human spirit...
Grow up cossetted, protected, fair enough repressed by ceremony and expectation but with every conceivable luxury... get to meet every person you possibly want to meet (e.g. aged 14 he and his brother had tea with the Spice Girls)... all this and what does he choose to do? Endure the torturous regimen and physical deprivations of a working soldier!

If I had all the money I wished for and a string of houses I certainly wouldn't fly out to Afghanistan! I'd spend my days rollerskating the corridors of Buck House, blaringly playing my music in the ballroom and gawking at satellite television as I devoured the royal Wine Cellars' supplies...!!

Harry? Oh yeah,I'm a fan. American Idol? I feel like they are all very young this year. Very immature. Always crying. It's like junior high. I'm afraid they've lost me this time around. In spite of David's top-notch Imagine rendition.

Someone else had posted the clip of the kid singing "Imagine." That blogger was moved, I was unimpressed. He sounded so whiney and didn't do the song justice.
As far as your aging Bose, he doesn't have the billions Madonna does to stay in shape. Still, when you're in your 50's and not a total fat ass, that's a good thing.
You're totally on with the Ben Foster thing!!

Geez, no photos of Miguel? "Serena" is a good album, but "Velvetina" is still my favorite since it's his most diverse, political, edgy. I know some people hate it, but I think it proves he's more than just a Latin Bowie or another crooner. The fact that he followed it up with "Por Vos Muero" with all of its strings and melodrama showed how diverse he really is.

There were Spanish speaking queens there? What a shock. A little paunch or not, I'd still marry Miguel.

Poor Old harry is right! Rumors still circulate about that hewitt guy who really doesn't look like Harry except for the ginger hair-- and that old granny they have --ew.

being second is better than being first in this case though! Hope he has figured that out!

yeah that james hewitt was allegedly his dad... someone tried to steal harry's dna off his hairbrush to make the match and "prove" it...
