Thoroughly Modern Millie

October 31st, 2004
The first show of this new season at the Fisher Theatre/Masonic Temple in Detroit was Thoroughly Modern Millie. The music was great. The choreography was better. The voices were decent overall, though I felt as though the lead was a little thin. This… more »

The Away Message.

October 29th, 2004
What is it about the "away message" that is tantalizing to so many people? What secrets does one keep there? Might the mysteries of the ages unfold in front of you for reading them? What would happen if one day you missed one? Could you ever forgive… more »

NFL Week 7.

October 27th, 2004
O Daunte Where Art Thou? Was it out of spite that Daunte Culpepper took this week off? Could he have possibly known that I renamed my fantasy team The DaunteCulpeppers in his honor? Vikes won easily so there was not much production out of Culpepper.… more »

J.W. Marriott Resort Desert Ridge - Phoenix, AZ

October 25th, 2004
This is a great place to stay in Phoenix. The resort itself is huge, it is more of a compound. The setting is magnificent: as you sit at a table in the back you overlook the resort's aqueduct (for lack of a better term) with a backdrop of palm trees and… more »

NFL Week 6.

October 19th, 2004
There is not very much worth noting about week 6, however I will do my best. Permit me to start with the Bills v. Dolphins showdown Sunday. This was a matchup of two undefeated teams to see if there was an actual way two teams playing each other could… more »

Chicago, Ill.

October 18th, 2004
Chicago is arguably my favorite big city. It was hands down my favorite until I lived in Philadelphia for even just the short time I was there. For a few days last week I was back in my element. There is nothing like being able to walk freely through… more »

"I seek you", ICQ!

October 12th, 2004
Whatever happened to the good old days when people you knew were still on ICQ? For whatever reason, I have never adopted the heartwarming feelings for AIM that I have for ICQ. ICQ set the standard for stand alone chat clients and gets no recognition for… more »

NFL week 5.

October 12th, 2004
This week's post...unfortunately...needs to start with mention of the New England Patriots setting the NFL record with 19 straight victories. Now, this is a HUGE accomplishment, but I am not sure getting the record breaking victory over a team most high… more »

NFL Week 4.

October 8th, 2004
I don't care what you say, I'm switching gears this week. We're now in the "who cares about the offense" mode. Some of the most exciting players in the league are on the other side of the ball and no one ever talks about these guys. Fantasy sports have… more »

Art of Living.

October 4th, 2004
Again bored by Sunday night football, I turned to Bravo and caught an episode of Inside the Actors Studio; James Lipton's guest was John Travolta. As this was the first time I've seen the show, I cannot speak to the frequency of good guests, but… more »
