With Al Jazeera America set to launch on Aug. 20, what does this mean for Al Jazeera English? Well, it’s now official - looks like AJE will be coming off the airwaves and AJA takes over.
In light of the horrible reporting by so many networks recently, I am looking forward to seeing what AJA will be like and how hard-hitting it will keep its standards. They’ve brought on a ton of CNN’s best and brightest, as well as rising gems in the media industry.
I guess all I can say is let’s see what happens on Aug. 20.
'Nine' the Musical - One of Guido's Girls
Last night I saw a local LA production of “Nine.” I have to admit that I have not seen the musical or watched the movie. I walked in a complete “Nine” virgin. I liked it a lot, and could see how it would be fun. This is saying a lot for someone who is sucker for musicals.
I think last night’s cast needs to rehearse more; however, they were all good singers. I came home and watched the movie, and I am more in love with it than I was last night. The casting was perfect. What can beat having all of these impressive women on one stage. Three of cinemas greatest beauties are in this movie - Penelope, Marion and Nicki. wow!
Rob Marshall must have had so much fun directing this and trying to bring the musical to the big screen - no easy task. And he really did make me feel as if I was in 1960’s Italy.
Crossing mediums fascinates me because you are only limited by your mind.
My childhood dream was to be a Broadway singer and dancer ... if I could only sing…
So AS sent this to me and thinks it’s the best new app. I can see why it would be very important for a straight guy, and honestly, I am not that offended by it.
i didn’t explore it that far. Please do and report back.
And they have free hot water!
Why won’t he help me find Missy!
Ever wondered about the origins of some of our biggest pop culture shows and characters? Here are seven of them for you.
But if Gilligan’s Island represents the 7 Deadly Sins, what is Maryanne supposed to represent?
And he has made a comeback — he’s now on Desperate Housewives. I hope his character can last longer than Alfre’s did.
My friend Moira Muldoon has brought her awesome column from the streets of Austin to the streets of Dallas.
I have had the pleasure of being part of the column. Here is her first one from the Belmont hotel. I am the friend in the story who talks about the reality TV show.

The DFW area was named the largest growing city in U.S. It grew about 25% from April 1, 2000, to July 1, 2009. It is now estimated to be about 6.5 million people.
Count me in as one of those people that moved here.
Take your obsession for Apple to the next level with Apple earrings. They could always make for a good Halloween costume.
I love anything Star Wars, so seeing this makes me want to get an iPad (not that I really needed a reason to get one). I wonder if I would be brave enough to wear this around town.
Talk-show host Craig Ferguson said it best “To say ‘I don’t like Betty White’ is kind of like declaring that you’re a member of al-Qaida.”
And he is right, Rose Nylund rocks and I have loved her since I saw her on GG when I was a little girl.
But in honor of her finally make it to the SNL stage, here is a timeline of BW through the years.
Do you think it’s a little out of control? I haven’t quite decided because I still enjoy it a lot.
My friend JL, one of the biggest Gleeks I know, sent this to me today.
Yes, that would be “Glee” radio. Enjoy!
I am listening to “Push It.” With our without “Glee,” I love this song. Holla!
When I was young, I used to get annoyed that my mom was so camera-shy, but after seeing these, I am very thankful.
I don’t think I could find one awkward photo like this in our family album.
