YOU TUBING
Here I sit, a second day snowed in. So let's poke around You Tube...

I loved those old afternoon variety shows of the 1970s like Merv, Mike and Dinah. Where else could you get entertainment like this on any random day, William Shatner singing Harry Chapin's 'Taxi' on Dinah Shore's program.

Or this great moment - the great Josephine Baker on Merv's show in 1974. It's audio only but you'll also hear Gloria Swanson on the panel.

FROM A SUNDAY PAST
There's an interesting story behind this clip from the 1970's Sunday show Kids Are People Too.

From Toni Tennille's Blog :
In the late 1970s, BRUCE JOHNSTON and the late CARL WILSON of the Beach Boys, JOHN JOYCE, an LA studio singer, and I occasionally sang together as a background quartet for recording sessions. It didn't happen often, because all of our schedules were very busy, but you can hear our work on a few notable recordings.... listen carefully to Elton John's DON'T LET THE SUN GO DOWN ON ME and you might be able to pick out my voice in the background vocals.

When constructing the harmonies we sang, we usually placed my voice in the center of the chord. My voice is in the male tenor range, and is very distinctive. The whole point of background harmonies is to have a seamless sound and vocally perfect blend. My voice stood out less, and blended better with the other voices if it were placed in the middle.

One day in late 1979, Bruce called me and asked if I would be interested in doing a background session for the famous rock group PINK FLOYD. They were in LA, working on a new album, and needed some background work. To be honest with you, although I had heard their name, I wasn't at all familiar with their music, but I ALWAYS keep an open mind musically, and I thought it would be really interesting to see how the "other half" works in a recording session. I told Bruce I'd love to, and a date was set.

The session was set up for a Sunday morning at an unpretentious Hollywood recording studio called Producer's Workshop. Daryl went with me...he was pretty curious, too. I guess I sort of expected to walk into a studio full of people lying around, smoking dope...lots of groupies..that sort of thing. What I found when we got there surprised me completely!

We were met, almost as soon as we walked in the front door, by Dave Gilmore, who, along with Roger Waters, was the face and sound of Pink Floyd at that time (they have since parted ways). Dave greeted me and Daryl heartily with a smile and a handshake, and stated that he had seen us on television that morning. I immediately thought, "What was a rock star doing, watching Sunday morning television?" Daryl and I had recently taped a guest appearance on a children's TV show called KIDS ARE PEOPLE TOO, and Dave told us he watched it that morning with his kids! So much for the "rock star" stereotype!

It turns out I would be working that day on a new concept album they were going to call THE WALL. I had no idea at the time what a musical landmark it would be. When Bruce, Carl and John arrived, we set to the business at hand. People often ask me "Which songs did you sing on?" Well...at the time, we worked on sections of songs that had no name. They would play a section of a song, tell us what they wanted in the way of backgrounds, and we sang them.

FRIDAY STUFF
I know all of you have been waiting to find out what Hitler's take will be on the iPad. As usual, he's not happy. (Will the people of the 22nd century even remember that Hitler was a bad man after another hundred years of ridicule? I've heard it said that Elvis is so iconic that one day he'll be worshipped like Jesus.)

Not planning on watching the Super Bowl? From the press release: On February 7, 2010, many viewers will want to flee testosterone-filled living rooms and sports bars in search of alternatives to football, and MGM HD may just have their answer. The studio’s high-definition network has scheduled a game-day lineup especially for those who wish the half-time show was the ONLY show. MGM HD will offer a marathon of six back-to-back musicals, going long to trade touchdowns for tunes and defense for dancing.

Shown in crystal-clear HD and the original 16:9 aspect ratio, the day’s “action” kicks off at 2:00pm EST/11am PST with a diverse selection of classic and contemporary musicals. To watch sneak-peek clips, check out production stills, and view the entire schedule, visit: www.mgmhd.com/musicals . Schedule includes:

Hair (1979) – With exuberance, inventiveness and humor, Treat Williams and Beverly D’Angelo lead a cast of stars in this film version of one of Broadway’s most popular musicals of all time.

The Cotton Club (1984) – It was the Jazz Age’s most electrifying showcase and Harlem’s most notorious speakeasy. Richard Gere plays a jazz musician who saves a mobster’s life, only to fight for his own when he falls for the gangster’s moll. Gregory Hines also stars as a dancer battling the prejudice of the day.

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994) – Fun, daring and over-the-top, this Oscar®-winning musical takes a road trip with two drag queens and a transsexual who get a cabaret gig in the middle of the Australian outback.

A Song is Born (1948) – This lavish Technicolor remake of an original Billy Wilder story features a stellar supporting cast of musical legends, including Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Louis Armstrong and others.

The Fantasticks (2000) – Based on the longest-running musical in the world, this bewitching musical comedy follows the scheming of two neighboring fathers who attempt to spark a romance between their children by faking a feud.

Moulin Rouge (1954) – With Zsa Zsa Gablor and Jose Ferrer's brilliant performances, and John Huston's Oscar® -nominated direction, Moulin Rouge is the fascinating story of troubled 19th century artist, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, passionately to life.

Did you know the victim in The Cotton Club murder Roy Radin was born on Friday the 13th, went missing on Friday the 13th, they found his body on Friday the 13th and it had 13 bullet holes in it? That's one of the stories in the book I'm working on, one that involves a couple of the girls in the entry below.

STUFF
Several people wrote to say they read those same World's Finest comics I did as a kid. No wonder, those comics sold almost a million copies a month thanks to the Batman TV show driving new readers to the newsstands (remember those?). Never again would anyone move that many comic books a month.

Speaking of superheroes, here's a great article on the doomed Spiderman 4 film project. I like the idea of rebooting the series and taking Peter Parker back to high school. The last Spidey movie didn't do it for me, I grew tired of Tobey MaGuire's Peter Parker, he lacked the spunk Steve Ditko's original creation had, MaGuire was so low key and boring. Can't wait to see what they do with The Mighty Thor but I'm not convinced it can be done right without a Lord of the Rings budget.

As you know, if you overbid on The Price Is Right you lose - no matter how close you were or how far off your opponent's bid is. Case in point:

This sounds interesting, from the press release: TV Land brings together former couples from around the globe – some of whom are from Australia, British Columbia, Canada and the U.S. – to reunite for one week to share feelings about their dramatic, emotional and often-times sudden break-ups and entertain the possibility of rekindling the relationships in the TV Land PRIME Original Series, “First Love, Second Chance.” The six-episode series gives viewers a candid look at former sweethearts – some separated more than 20 years ago – who have a chance to reignite the passion and love they once shared or to see if their break-up was truly meant to be. The series premieres on Wednesday, March 10th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Producer David Hemingson (How I Met Your Mother) is the creator and executive producer of ABC’s new show The Deep End! On ABC.com, you can re-watch the entire pilot episode with commentary from David himself. How many shots did it take to get the perfect timing in the handcuffing scene? How many cupcakes did Tina (“Addy”) eat while filming the ‘You Guys Did It?’ scene? Get the scoop on shooting the scandalous and steamy scenes straight from David. Check out his commentary and watch the pilot here.

From the New York Times: Zelda Rubinstein, a 4-foot-3-inch character actress best known for playing the indomitable ghost-purging psychic in “Poltergeist,” died on Wednesday in Los Angeles. She was 76 and lived in Los Angeles. She was one of the nice people in the business and will be missed.

This is the cutest, funniest thing you'll see all day:
