Is it just me, or do you also notice that Scott Stepp, the lead singer of Creed, always sounds really, really constipated???

Prolonging Her 15 Minutes of Fame/Shame

Is there anyone who doesn't regard Monica Lewinsky as a very sad individual? Well, she just got sadder, as we learn in this story from the Associated Press...

Monica Lewinsky to Be Reality TV Host
Thu Mar 20, 3:58 AM ET

LOS ANGELES - Handbag designer and former White House intern Monica Lewinsky has a new job: reality TV host.

Lewinsky has been hired for the Fox series "Mr. Personality," a dating show in which a female contestant is courted by men whose looks are kept hidden.

The men "must rely strictly on their personalities to captivate" the woman, Fox said.

"Since Fox is the network that has had the greatest success with this genre, I was very excited when they approached me to host the show. It sounds like good fun," Lewinsky said in a statement released Wednesday by the network.

The series is scheduled to begin April 21 on Fox, which has scored ratings hits with reality shows including "American Idol" and "Joe Millionaire."

She actually appears to be quite "book smart," despite the obvious lack of common sense and self-esteem, added to a dopey fascination with fame. She should get a real job.

Maybe Right Now...

...We need some poetry:

Why don't we take a little piece of summer sky
Hang it on a tree?
For that's the way to start to make a pretty world
For you and for me

And for the sun we'll find a lemon bright balloon
You can hold the string
Oh can't you see this little world of ours will be
The prettiest thing?

We can gather rain enough for a stream
To hold our happy faces
If you want a breeze
I'll blow you a kiss or two

Take me in your arms
And our little world will be the place of places
Nothing else to make
But breakfast and love

We'll hang a little sign that just says
"Paradise - Population 2"
I know together we can make a pretty world
For me and for you
For you
That's what I'm longing to do
To do
To make a world with you

To make a world with you

Who Me, Jealous???

What's the big deal about Ashton Kutcher, anyway? He's the guy who plays Michael Kelso on That 70's Show, one of the few TV shows I actually watch.

It's a great show, well written, well acted by a believable, likable cast, and created by a Western New Yorker, Fredonia's Mark Brazill.

Kutcher's become a heartthrob.
Okay, so he's tall...and maybe good looking. Gets all kinds of press coverage and has some new dopey reality show coming to MTV. Does he really look better than I do??? I don't think so.

I should be dating Brittany Murphy.

Please humour me here. Agree. I know I'm babbling.

New Location!!

The Mr. Nice Guy Show is moving to this new location.

Permanently...for good...I think......but it might continue here, too.

I'm thinkin'.


Note: In June of '03, The Mr. Nice Guy Show moved back here to Blogger. On 11/15/03, all entries made at the site were incorporated into the Blogger site under the dates they were originally posted.

Do Media Know That War Kills???

The media want a war soooo badly. They'll probably get their wish in a couple of days.

They've got many reporters and producers and technicians all bunched-up in places where they usually might have two guys. This waiting thing costs 'em money...and they don't like that. They also know that millions of people who long ago abondoned network TV will come rushing back if there's a war. Even the lowly radio biz will get lots more ears with a war than they do with syndicated, divisive talk shows, greed-driven music shows, and crazy morning crews.

The one problem is that war is not a show like Survivor Amazon, Joe Millionaire, or Friends. On this war "show," people will be dying.

See what the people at FAIR: Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting had to say about this the other day.
