I happened to catch The Dinah Shore Chevy Show on JLTV and saw this amazing performance by Chita Rivera. What a firecracker!
Mayim Bialik of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Looking Gorgeous in Vintage
In the February 2014 issue of CBS’s Watch! Magazine, Mayim Bialik (‘The Big Bang Theory’, ‘Blossom’) is looking vraiment magnifique in these vintage designs from Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Dior. There were certain restrictions, but the results are wonderful.

Gary Cooper Stamp Coming September 10th
As part of their Legends of Hollywood stamp series, the U.S. Postal Service will honor Gary Cooper, the all-amercian leading man from Hollywood’s “Golden Age.”
His stellar career includes such great films as Meet John Doe, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Beau Geste, Sergeant York, and High Noon.
Buy them quickly or they will be gone! (Because I will buy them all!)
Tom Jones sings “Delilah” (1968)
Tom Jones sings “Delilah” on Britain’s Top of the Pops. Please enjoy the singing because you are not going to enjoy the dancing. Apparently, those poor dears are afflicted with “No Rhythm” syndrome!
‘The Saint’ – The TV Titles
“The Saint” was a wonderful British television program based on the novels by Leslie Charteris. Roger Moore played the role of Simon Templar, the hero who would leave his “saint-ly” calling card, a stick figure with a halo. You should watch it some time!
Below are two different titles used during the show’s run – one in black & white and the other in color. The first one is just utilitarian,
but the second one is very jazzy and hip (the second one was pulled off Youtube for copyright violation – boo!).
Black & White Intro (short & simple, with a jazzy theme)
Update (10/21/13): I found this intro and it is a one-off – much more cinematic!
“Beverly Hillbillies” for Kellogg’s Corn Flakes…
‘Sesame Street’ to Parody ‘Mad Men’
It is being reported that “Sesame Street” is going to do a parody of AMC’s critically-acclaimed show, “Mad Men.” And just why are they doing this?
From The Live Feed article:
“Sesame Workshop’s VP of Education and Research, Dr. Rosemarie Truglio adds, ‘Sesame Street has always been written on two levels. And the children don’t understand these parodies, but the adult does…'”
This is not the first time they have done a parody. A few years ago, “Sesame Street” did a take-off “Desperate Housewives” called “Desperate Houseplants.”
I am looking forward to this one!
Note: The ‘Elmo Draper’ photo above is just an imagining. It is not an official image. Do you think they would release a photo of Elmo smoking?!?
