Dream Theater has announced that their new live 3CD set & 2 DVD set "Score" will be released on August 29. The release features the 3-hour concert from their 20th Anniversary Radio City Music Hall concert this year. The DVD is also said to be packed with live extras from the Portnoy archives.
Good God. Watching a pregnant, weeping Britney Spears last night on Dateline NBC was disturbing. She wore an outfit that had three quarters of her cleavage hanging out. She seemed like she was dressed for her back yard instead of a National TV interview. I honestly felt pity for her. Doesn't she have a crew of publicists and managers that can give her advice of how to dress and present herself? I could never get by without my team of publicists and my posse. That's just how I roll.

I have predicted twice previously in my blog that NBC's "Windfall" show would fail miserably..... It finished 13th overall last week. A repeat of CBS' "Without a Trace" beat "Windfall" in it's time-slot. 13th overall is a respectable start, but NBC is known for not having much patience. I will stick by my prediction & say that the show is not long for this world. You can trust me in this and all things. In addition to television ratings predictions, please rest assured that my advice on relationships, real estate, frozen vegetables and fire retardant pajamas is top notch.
The mammoth Marvel Comics "Civil War" event is living up to the hype. The lines are drawn & heroes are fighting each other. Iron Man has his group of pro-registration act heroes on one side, while Captain America is heading the rebellion force. As the media has reported, Spiderman unmasks revealing Peter Parker's identity to the world. Spiderman foil J. Jonah Jameson fainting as Spidey reveals himself to be Parker is a true classic moment..... Of course, this is all fiction. In real life, I am Spiderman. There. I said it. It's been hard for me to hold on to the secret for all these years, but I had to come clean. It's like a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I now can fight crime with a clear conscience.
I don't enjoy hockey. I'm a big baseball/football fan, but hockey doesn't do it for me. That being said, I watched the end of The Stanley Cup Finals game last night. The shorthanded goal by Fernando Pisani in overtime was incredible. One of the most dramatic sports moments of the year. I got so wrapped up in the excitement that I've worn a full hockey uniform to work today. I never realized how hard it is to walk with ice-skates on. I'm actually getting pretty good at it. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this new found skill....

John Wetton and Geoff Downes of ASIA played an acoustic set Saturday night at a baptist church. You can tell I wasn't in the congregation. I would have been standing and screaming the lyrics in the front row, with my fists in the air, crying with joy and wearing my ASIA Rules T-shirt.

Poor Huff. He's separated from his wife, his son ignores him, he has an ulcer, he sees visions and he's living with his crazy friend Russell. I've said it before. "Huff" is a hell of a show. Watch it now. I don't care where you are. If you're at work, go home, order Showtime & watch "Huff". Tell your boss Geno said it's o.k., I gave you permission.

Yesterday, Pat Sajak lived out one of my fantasies on live television. He was able to do yoga with Kelly Ripa on a bed. Damn Pat Sajak! Damn him to hell! Of course, I could incorporate "Wheel of Fortune" into my Yoga session with Kelly. I see it now...Kelly, me, yoga, a bed, "Wheel of Fortune" playing on the TV, both of us wearing our bunny slippers, her three kids jumping on the bed asking for snacks, asking me "Are you my Daddy?", her husband coming in and saying "Who the hell are you?".....I have to work on this fantasy. It just isn't working for me. Photos are from the premiere Kelly Ripa website: www.ourdailyripa.com

Poor EB got the snot beat out of him by the sheriff on the season premiere of "Deadwood" last night. The sad thing is that EB was actually innocent for the first time in his life. I'm so happy this show is back. Television at its finest. To celebrate, I dressed up in my cowboy hat, chaps & loaded up my toy cap gun. I then went down to the local supermarket & rode the toy pony outside the entrance for 2 hours. Over the 2 hour period, I received a lot of strange looks and a phone number from a 70 year old 300 pound woman. She said I should call her, come over and wear the outfit. You meet the strangest people when you are dressed up like a cowboy, shooting a toy cap gun, riding a toy horse & yelling "Deadwood is back c&^%suckers!!!".
I saw "Prairie Home Companion". It wasn't a great movie, but it did provide a shocking moment that I wasn't expecting. Lindsay Lohan can actually sing. I've seen her lip-sync her way through a couple of talk show appearances. So I wasn't expecting much. That being said, her live performances in the movie were actually very enjoyable. Holy crap. I said it.
