I say side B!

As everyone knows Tuesdays are “new music” release days… I don’t really know why but it is done on Tuesdays.  Well today Janet Jackson released her “Number One’s” CD. While reading my Target circular and viewing the arrival of this album I immediately said out loud, “another one”! It seems like she, along with many, many other artists go overboard with “best of” CD’s. Maybe she needs to help pay for Michael’s funeral so she quick took her last “best of” CD, slapped on new cover and shipped it out to the stores.  I know Madonna also has a new “best of”…she’s another one that overdoes it. She may have added one or two new songs but it’s all a scam to get people to spend more money. And yes, even Cher put out a couple too close in time (she should have turned back time….lol, lol).

Do people still buy CD’s or have they become the “you actually buy CD’s” phrase of the year. I know most people just download albums anymore or like me, I buy “songs”. Hey, it’s a recession so I pick the hit and purchase that. I feel like I’m 7 years old again buying the 45 because that’s all my allowance will let me afford. Only now I’m an adult, the country is in a mess and I’m unemployed hence the purchase of a “single”. I did splurge the other day (it was Tuesday, release day) and actually bought the new GLEE CD…which I love.  (Wow, in this post I got to mention Cher and GLEE…cool).

I know this past summer I took off a month of writing the Daily Dalia and re-posted the “best of” but I wouldn’t do the same ones AGAIN…I’ll wait till I’m rich and famous for that. How about these artist’s put out “The Second Best Of”…like the side B of a 45. Cher…you are more than welcome to use my great idea.

Strike a Pose

Have you ever seen something and said “wow, that looks like fun, I want to do that”! When I saw these cool photo’s of Faith Hill in this months Redbook  that is exactly what I said. First I love the 60’s and 70’s style but to have a professional transform you into an icon for a photo would be a great gig for someone. And yes, we all know I would pick Cher but there would be a whole other list I would want to…I love the old fashion glamour of Hollywood.

Now to look at someone skydiving…I’ll pass on that. Let me look like Marilyn Monroe for a photo…now that’s business. I will have to look in the yellow pages. Who would you choose for your photo?

Don’t be a Pre-Madonna

I took the day off yesterday, I was mentally drained from the election (mainly disgusted over prop 8 results) and I had got home late from seeing Madonna on election night. This is the first time I have seen her perform and all I can say is we were literally in the last row (yes, we had tissue for our nose bleeds). Whatever happened to the good old days when you spent a $100 for a ticket and you were on the floor…now it’s the last row! The sound was awful (Petco Park, San Diego) and if it wasn’t for the screen, Madonna could have been a Vegas Impersonator. We discussed with other last row people the “pros” of our seats to make us all feel better…no one could spill their drink on us or vomit on us, we could stand up and dance and not annoy anyone and basically that was it. Eventually we did move a tad closer and then it was a little better. I must say, for a woman in her 50’s she could run circles around a lot of people half her age, great energy level! The best part was when she announced that Obama was our next president…the crowd roared! I guess being a Cher fan I was surprised at how simple Madonna’s outfits were but I guess when you move like her you can’t wear anything too elaborate. I have come to the conclusion though, if you are not in the first 25 rows of any concert, wait for the concert to come out on video and rent it! Here is a YouTube video from that night when she acknowledges Obama as our president and asks everyone to come forward and have no space…worth watching even though quality of video isn’t the best.

Some Sunday Entertainment

Lets all take a political break, sit back, relax and watch Cher at her very best!! Even if you are not a Cher fan you have to love this video.

For Sale

 

Just hot on the market…CHER’s house. Can you imagine living in Cher’s house…well you probably can because you’re not a huge fan like myself! Cher, if you read the Daily Dalia or if anyone personally knows her, maybe we can do some kind of trade…everything I own for your house. Actually it would be cool enough just to tour it. I wonder how realtors keep wacko’s like me out?? Does anyone have 45 million to lend me…a 100 year mortage at 1% interest. Whoever does end up buying it, can I come to your house warming party? I’ll take anything.

Viva Las Vegas

Tomorrow I will be heading to Vegas for a couple days…nothing like Vegas in the summer; it will be 108 degrees of dry heat…ahhh! It’s so exciting pulling onto the strip when you first arrive, the energy you feel is more then any pink bunny could handle but for me, after 2 nights, it’s then time to get the hell out of Dodge. At first hearing the slot machines is music to your ears but the morning of your checkout it’s more like a dentist’s drill! Your first buffet you may go in for a late lunch (to get the cheaper rate) and stay straight through dinner for the variety of food; last day…gives me a piece of toast because my clothes seem to have shrunk since I arrived. First day people watching might be at the top of my list as entertainment, guessing where they live from their wardrobe has better odds then blackjack; last day the word “hermit” comes to my mind. If you haven’t been…let me be the first to tell you, small doses!

I look forward to my next trip to Vegas which will be in September to see my FAVORITE celebrity…CHER at Caesars Palace!

Unlike Vegas, she is superb at first…and everyday after that!
