BREAKING NEWS ...
Tanya Roberts is dead ... again.
Further updates as they occur.
Seriously, though, this has got to be either the most bungled news release EVER ...
Or the most brilliant.
Let's face it ... Tanya's name hasn't been in a headline for nearly thirty years ...
And now she's been front page news for three days in a row!
(What a way to go out!)
But you've REALLY gotta wonder what her husband / domestic partner (?) and publicist were thinking.
This whole see-saw announcement mess is an embarrassment ... and then to have contrary news phoned in right in the middle of a live interview on Inside Edition??? Seriously??? (I'm sorry, but it all seems a bit staged to me. I mean, c'mon ... the guy is in the middle of a live television interview and then, precisely timed to coincide with all of this, while still on camera, mind you, he stops to take a phone call, which just happens to be from the hospital to tell him that Tanya, whose passing he's been talking about live on the air at that very moment, is still alive??? This doesn't seem the least bit far-fetched to you??? I dunno ... but I'm thinking that this is worse than the script of ANY B-Movie she starred in while she was still alive.)
But by noon yesterday, the death report was confirmed by The New York Times. (kk)
This whole fiasco reminds Chuck Buell about why, in these days of social distancing, we may need reminders like this from time to time ...
You remember those old Clairol commercials ... "Does she ... or doesn't she" ...
I can't help hearing a whole new "Is she ... or isn't she" Tanya Robert campaign playing in my head! (On the plus side, if she has, in fact, now officially left us, I do believe that this renders her eligible to cast at least one of the 11,000 elusive votes El Presidente is looking for down in Georgia right now.) kk
I gotta tell ya, in spite of spending my entire working life in electronics engineering, I've NEVER seen anything like the Boston Dynamic robots dancing to Do You Love Me. It made me want to get up and dance. If I try to dance, I trip over my own feet.
Thanks to C.B. for sharing!
Here's a pair that'll be out of style soon. Maybe. ;-)
Here’s a rare find on You Tube!
In the last couple of weeks, a fan posted for the first time a pristine version of a 1978 BBC Bread Special and the quality is pristine! Most of the hits are included.
So nice to see music done “live” on TV and not lip synched.
-- Tom Cuddy
I have watched this special several times before in FAR inferior quality ... you're talking to a BIG Bread fan here ... LOVE their stuff, David Gates' stuff and was fortunate enough to see them a few times both in their prime and as part of their reunion / farewell tour. ALWAYS a good show. (I've told the story before how at the reunion show David made the comment that if he had known he would still be singing these songs 30 years later, he would have written them in a lower key!!! lol) Outstanding.
Thanks, Tom! (kk)
And did you happen to catch Barry Gibb on The CBS Sunday Morning Profile this past Sunday?
Tom sent us a link for this one, too.
(Barry talks about the new country album of duets he has coming out, reimagining some of the songs from The Brothers Gibb songbook as well as the recent HBO Documentary Special, "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?") kk

>>>Strange thing about this pandemic - I seem to have less time than ever! It took a while, but I’ve finally figured out why. I used to sleep about six hours a day ... now I average about nine hours!" (Danny)
Yeah ... me, too!
I can relate to Danny's Slumber Schedule these days.

A few years ago, when Vern Gosdin (The Voice) was still with us, I was walking around The Bellevue Mall with Vern as he was waiting for his significant other to get done with her nails. (Vern was dressed in black shirt, pant, and shoes with several gold chains hanging out around his neck and a full head of hair combed back.)
THE DUMBEST SONGS EVER ... NEIL DIAMOND ... ELVIS PRESLEY ...
AND ANOTHER FIFTY YEAR FLASHBACK CHART FROM 1971 ...
