Send in the Fluff
I suppose I should get a bumper sticker that says, I survived the Cowboy Junkies since I am now over them, at least for another week or so. For me, music always seems to go in cycles. I will listen to something for a short-term, get really into it, and then, poof, onto the next thing. I do have a latent desire for Ricky Martin music, Ken. It’s not all sad songs. Although, I’m the first to admit, it’s probably his butt that I’m attracted to, so I will probably just go for the visuals. MTV does have its good side. Er, maybe everybody on MTV has a good side. Yeah, that’s it. Oh and, Ken, if you are reading this, today is the anniversary of the first KISS album, I believe, so you should go home and listen. Or watch some MTV, maybe they will wake up and play some real music for a change.
And, speaking of MTV and all things fluff, I heard this morning on the radio that Britney Spears is going to star in Sex in the City. She is going to have a recurring role as somebody’s sex starved neice or something. I have never seen that show, so I cannot say for certain, but they were talking about some “brief nudity” for her as well. Yes, it’s true. Britney is going to show off those new implants. Oh joy. For just $10,000. you too can have killer headlights.
Actually, I am quietly plotting and craving HBO. I have only Encore and, except for the action channel, it just isn’t that good. I mean, a girl does need her fix of Jackie Chan movies, but I would like to see an occassional love story or something that’s been in the theater in the past six months. Especially since I never go to the movies. I refuse to pay $6 or whatever it is these days to see a dud. I’d rather just wait and talk to my artist friends and find out what’s really good. Heck, I don’t even own a DVD player. Although I am seriously thinking about getting one. Yeah, maybe the same day I get my flat screened TV.
But, back to HBO. There are a lot of good shows on HBO. And now we have this new HBO on demand so you can watch stuff when you want to see it. I think that’s mega-cool, since I get home late from work all the time, have to take time to do my Tao Bo (which takes an hour) and then I’m too tired to do anything other than watch TV. So, yes, even though I am a highfalutin most of the time, I do have my “fluffy side.” And, these days it seems, anybody can turn on a dime. Maybe even show off a “fluff” side or two. Pass me the bubble gum, por favor.
Until next time, this is Carol, the Carol in “Carol’s Little World” signing off.
