My last few posts have probably had a fair amount of readers, but not enough comments! BOOOOO!!! I always like to read what y'all have to say.
Friday night, I went to catch This Is It, and it was eerie to see Michael Jackson up on the big screen--to think that those were truly his final moments alive is quite bizarre. The band he was using for his then upcoming European tour was pretty damn good, and they played through most of his hit songs flawlessly. I really enjoyed the music and the inside look at the rehearsals for each number. Michael's speaking voice sounded awfully masculine, which is something that caught me by surprise, and he was a bit stiffer in his dancing, but that's only because he was already 50 earlier this year, and there's no way I guess to move the way he once did in his youth. Ah youth, so fleeting, so temporary as is life itself. Anyway, good little documentary and kind of moving to see MJ's enthusiasm for his tour that never was. In the film, he appears a bit gaunt, but certainly alive and with enough energy to pull it off. The same guy behind the High School Musical movies directed this too, fellow Hispanican (<---LOL) Kenny Ortega.
Saturday night, I went to the Casita Del Campo Mexican restaurant in Silverlake to catch a very raunchy politically incorrect play/show at their underground theater called Whatever Happened to Busty Jane? Written by drag queen persona Jackie Beat, who also played the immortal Bette Davis role, it also starred a very talented little cast of hilarious vulgar bastards, including the terribly funny Nadya Ginsburg and Selene Luna, who can be seen in this YouTube skit right here. The show ran for about two hours, and was very funny and quite crude, racist, sexist, and homophobic at times, but nice job by all. True satire never pulls any punches right?
Look, it's nice and dandy that health care thingy passed the House and all, but won't it just die in the Senate now?! Why all the celebrating?! And although it would be great to have universal care for everyone, who is gonna pay for all this? Taxes on the rich only? I highly doubt that man. I get the horrible feeling we the working class is gonna get socked with the bill too, while the unemployed and those who choose to be lazy are gonna eat it all right up! ARGH! There is so much wrong with this country right now. I hate both main political parties to be honest. The corruption in Congress and that of other legislators and politicians is downright criminal. The Republicans and Democrats at each other's throats, and all the bickering and divisiveness is pathetic. SIMPLY PATHETIC!
Sesame Street is 40 years old?! UNBELIEVABLE! I used to watch it as a kid till about age 12, and then I discovered sex of course. LOLOL! The immortal Jim Henson lives on! Ya gotta love Grover's bad service and that annoyed blue guy; these skits were pretty funny:
