Michael Jackson: Forget Vegas, Come to Branson

AP is reporting, via Yahoo, that Michael Jackson is considering offers to perform in Las Vegas. You can read it here. I, Desdinova - the Super Villain of the Ozarks, has a better idea. Mr. Jackson, please come to Branson, MO. I think you would be a wonderful addition to the Ozarks. We need you here. There is nothing cool about the Ozarks, you can be (next to me) the COOLEST THING IN THE OZARKS! I'll give you the names of several little kids who would just love to come over to your house and play.

And while we are on the subject of famous people I'd like to see move to the Ozarks, read this little piece about Elfindale Manor. Yes, I'm going to start a committee to help me get Michael Jackson to move to Branson and open a theater (Thriller Theater and Daycare Center?) and Larry Flynt to buy Elfindale, as he had once planned and start publishing Hustler here in Springfield. He can be one of Springfield's Best. If I don't get my way, I'll zap every woman in Springfield with my Hair-Be-Gone Ray. Every woman in Springfield will look like Britney Spears (or Jack Nicholson at the Oscars)! Mwu-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

The Grammys and an Oscar music award

First off, I was glad to see the Dixie Chicks and Ludacris win Grammys. They beat out that "Bill O'Reilly Sings Love Song About Falafel."

IMDB is reported earlier this week that Italian movie composer Ennio Morricone is disappointed he will receive an honorary Academy Award later this month, because it was his lifelong ambition to avoid winning an Oscar. The 70-year-old Morricone, who has scored over 400 films and is responsible for creating the distinctive scores of Spaghetti Westerns such as Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, Navajo Joe and the Good, the Bad and the Ugly. He says, "After five nominations I expected nothing, in fact I hoped I'd remain without an Oscar. I would have remained in the company of illustrious non-winners. I see the Oscar as a little bit of a fluke - even if those who win deserve it. That doesn't mean that I'm not happy about it. I have received so many beautiful, incredible prizes, but there was a little hole. Maybe the Oscar fills the hole." He was also upset that when the announcement was made they called him Hugo Montenegro.

Not to Be Confused with Muppet Babies

From the Springfield Daily News, another ad from the Studio for a film called Rollerbabies. The funny thing is these ads are always next to the program listings for KLFJ, a religious non-com on AM.

Just a suggestion

If we can fly flags at half-mast for Republicans such as Reagan and Ford, then shouldn't we also do the same for Playboy playmates.

They said "blow." Huh-huh-huh!

Another ad from the Springfield Daily News for the Studio. I had to use this one because it has the word "blow" in the title. Sorry about the quality of these. They come from microfilms of the newspapers.

Not Just the Studio

From a 1976 Springfield Daily News: It wasn't just the Studio, but the Gillioz had "X" rated movies. Ah, the Good Ole Days.

25 Years of Lettermen

On February 1, 1982, Late Night with David Letterman debuted on NBC. I was in junior high at the time and could only watch the show in the summer. What I saw of it I liked. Letterman's style of humor made me laugh. I tried to emulate his style in my work. Letterman shows no sign of slowing up. I've really enjoyed his recent battles with that balding, blow-hard Bill O'Reilly. Even after heart surgery a few years back, Letterman could kick both O'Reilly's and Hanity's right-wing butts. Keep up the good work, Dave. I'll celebrate your anniversary by re-reading some of the Top Ten Books.
