Daughter of a man born into slavery votes!

This is an amazing story that is well worth the brief read. According to The Statesman, "Amanda Jones, 109, the daughter of a man born into slavery, has lived a life long enough to touch three centuries. And after voting consistently as a Democrat for 70 years, she has voted early for the country's first black presidential nominee." Check out the full article (linked above and below) and then remind yourself why we vote.

And if you haven't ever voted before, think about why Ms. Jones does.

Sigh... I just cannot get enough of this. I wish I could also find "Witch's Night Out," the 1978 cartoon special featuring Gilda Radner. It was a great cartoon with some freaky animation and some really fun/funky music. I loved it when I was little but haven't seen it in forever. Boo.

It's like an Agatha Christie novel over here!

Yep, as the news has posted, HAIRSPRAY will likely be the next victim of the de-gaying of Broadway. (Of course, I'm being silly about the de-gaying. The gay is here for good.) According to, the hit musical will close on January 18, 2009 after more than six years.

A moment of silence please.

Ok, enough silence. Besides, rumor has it that La Fierstein will return as Edna for the final round. EEEK! I think I just got so excited that my jeans burst into flames.

The blokes are back! LITTLE BRITAIN USA hits HBO.

Matt Lucas and David Walliams are back and hitting the USA. Little Britain USA has started on HBO and looks like it could be a fresh continuation of the original. If you didn't catch the first episode, find a friend who kept it on their DVR, bring over a and enjoy.

My favorite characters are back, and the new ones look to be just as clever. Enjoy the show!
