Well there’s a shocker. Charlie Sheen’s concert last night was a BOMB. What was suppose to be the first of a twenty city ‘Torpedo Of Truth’ tour now seems to be in jeopardy.
The reviews were not kind.
Apparently, quite early into the show, people started booing and screaming ‘Refund!!’. Ouch.
Ever wonder what ever happened to ‘The One’ that got away?
Ever wondered about that old boyfriend or girlfriend from high school or college?You broke up, but you never stopped thinking of them. You’re not alone. In a recent study, published in the journal, Social Psychological & Personality Science, romantic relationships are the number one regret amongst American adults (followed by family regrets, career, education, finances and parenting). I find it interesting that more people have regrets over their pocketbooks than their kids. Nice. But I digress.

Her style wasn’t for everyone but Joan was always the first person to poke fun at herself. SHE had her own best put downs.
“The fashion magazines are suggesting that women wear clothes that are ‘age appropriate.’ For me that would be a shroud.”
“My face has been tucked in more times than a bedsheet at the Holiday Inn.”
Thanks for making me nearly pee my pants Joan Rivers!!

I didn’t WANT to LIKE this movie
Okay, so I didn’t want to like Transformers- Dark of the Moon. However, I took my nieces and you know what, it’s not bad. It’s pretty good, in fact. The Autobots and the Decipicons are battling over control of a Cybertronian spacecraft discovered on the moon and all hell breaks loose. Huh?
Yes, I actually went from ‘When the hell is this going to be over?’ to yelling, “Go Optimus. Take that Sentinel!”
Though, truthfully, I found it hard to discern between good guys and bad guys sometimes because they looked so similar. Maybe Transformers’ director Michael Bay should have taken cues from American Gladiator and just gone with a basic Team Red vs Team Blue. THAT, I can understand. Sadly, confusing battle scenes could be the ONE deciding factor that holds Transformers back from a clean Oscar sweep…haha.
Patrick Dempsey doesn’t suit being a vilian
I’m a big fan of Grey’s Anatomy which makes it hard to buy Dr. McDreamy as a bad guy. Dempsey’s sweet voice doesn’t really sell the Transformers evil world domination vibe that we need from this role.
Is Megan Fox missed?
I don’t know. I didn’t see the first two Transformers but my nieces say that Fox brought a certain tomboyish quality to the roll that made you believe that she could handle herself against big bad aliens. English model (need I say more) Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was beautiful but why the hell was she still wearing lipstick after she just helped save the planet?
Sadly, Whitely’s role is wasted and once again,reflects geeky writers who should start dating before they include female characters in their movies 😉
21/2 hours- really??
LOVED the special FX but Tranformers- Dark of the Moon is half an hour too long. My nieces agree and that’s why Cybertron Croon and her cool mini sidekicks give Transformers 3 1/2 Moonrocks out of 5
So I stumbled upon this article recently It’s something I cut out at the beginning of the year from Huffington Post 100 Tips to make 2011 the best year of your life!!!!
Friday Croon News: My interview with Sissy Spacek at Roy Thomson Hall
I had a fabulous, eye-0pening evening this past Monday, May 13, 2013 as I interviewed Sissy Spacek. Anyone who knows me, knows I am a list-writer by nature and that I love passing on life lessons to others. Well, Sissy Spacek proved that I, too, am teachable. Imagine that! Please allow me to woo you with my newfound water-cooler-worthy spiel.
Life Lesson #1:
It doesn’t take very long to make someone feel special and important.
My bio says, “Judy Croon: comedian, motivational speaker, author and proud to have never been in jail.” As soon as I met Sissy Spacek, she said to me, “I have never been to jail either…at least, not in real life. I read your bio; I thought that was really funny.”
How sweet is that?
When Spacek shook my hand, she shook it with both of her hands and looked me straight in the eyes. “It’s really nice to meet you,” she said.
How cool is that?
Life Lesson #2:
No one in this world is scar-free.
Following in the footsteps of their older cousin and his wife—actors Rip Torn and Geraldine Page—Sissy and her older brother, Robbie, had planned to go to New York together to pursue their dreams.
The dream was deferred as Robbie died of Leukemia. Spacek was a mere teenager at the time.
Life Lesson #3:
Life is too short. Do what makes you happy.
Instead of Spacek’s parents sheltering her, they recognized her passion for acting and let her drop out of college to go to New York as she had originally desired, to pursue her dream.
Thanks, Ms. Spacek, for the opportunity, the moment and the insights!
Okay, now for five fun facts:
– that was really Sissy’s hand that came out of the grave at the end of Carrie. She insisted upon it.
-Sissy broke into her Loretta Lynn impression while she reading excerpts from her book, ‘ My Extraordinary Ordinary Life‘. (I was back stage. It was eerie because if you shut your eyes, you could swear you were at the Grand Ole Opry listening to Loretta.)
-Upon an audience member’s request, Sissy sang a few lines from ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ as the normally conservative Toronto audience
happily clapped along.
-Sissy took Loretta Lynn with her to the Oscars. After she won best actress for Coal Miner’s Daughter, Spacek was approached by Dolly Parton. Parton joked with Spacek and told her to get implants so she could play the role of Dolly next.
-Yes, for those of you wondering, Spacek is now a Leafs fan. haha
What a class act all the way!
Have you ever wondered whatever happened to ‘The One’ that got away? Do you think about that special someone who was the right person at the wrong time? Do you wonder what might happen if you were to meet again?
Is this the latest, greatest reality show on tv that you are missing????
