American Idol - April 19

Last week Idol finalists reminded we older viewers how young they actually are, by singing songs released during their birth year. Included were, Let’s Hear It For The Boy – a song released by Denise Williams in 1984! Well, Nadia Turner bit the bullet. Although she wasn’t one of my favorites I couldn’t help but think that Anthony Federov has well exhausted his lucky charms’ powers. He is completely out of his league now and anyone getting dropped before Federov will prove voting is not necessarily fair to the most talented finalists. Who does your friendly Cocoa Rican love (yes, I said LOVE) – Anwar Robinson, of course!! Yes, I realize he’s slightly nerdy and boring. Yes, I see he lacks rhythm. I also can see a flawless face with pink lips parting beautifully to reveal an angelically controlled voice. No, I’m not delusional enough to think he’ll win, but if America has any sense of sight or hearing, he’ll be in the final three. Watch Fox, tonight at 8 p.m.

NY Says We Recognize You

On April 6, Anthony Crowell, special counsel to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, announced that The Big Apple will recognize same sex and opposite sex civil unions. Unfortunately, a clear definition of what the benefits will entail has not been released by the mayor’s office. Many gay and lesbian groups have praised the mayor for his efforts and said it is a step in the right direction.

Long Story Short…

Richard S. is fast becoming the final candidate in a race for a position with Neilsen, the ratings folks. Evelyn C. was released from the hospital last night. Her prognosis is still guarded, but the doctors are confident that mom and baby will do fine during the long-awaited delivery. Melvin and Kim S. will be visiting NYC this weekend to celebrate their anniversary. The Maryland couple plans to stay at the Millenium Hotel and enjoy many Big Apple attractions – call me! Phillipe G. is closing on a successful art exhibit in one of the city’s local watering holes. The exhibit had old friends of G scratching their heads at the creative work.

Keep passin’ the open windows…
