The Queen (2006)

WKRP in Cincinnati: Season 1 Well, it was always a matter of either getting the show with missing scenes (some scenes that have dialogue surrounding a particular pop song that they couldn't license) and music substituted with generic low-cost stuff or not having the show on DVD period. This is better than nothing, but still a disappointment.

"Jesus, I like him very much, but he no help with curveball."

Well hello again all. First, a couple of notes before I dive into this week:

First, let's all root for the speedy recovery of Danielle's dog Peyton who had his spleen removed over the weekend. He's apparently up and eating, so keep it up, you big sweet goofy dog!

Second, there was a good op-ed in the NY Times about the record industry, "Spinning Into Oblivion". It's pretty short and worth a read, so check it out here.
