Music- As of now, "Smokehouse Sessions by one of my all time faves is out and ready for you to buy. It's brand new music from the Jackie Wilson sound-alike Si Cranstoun. He's the sensation from Surrey (that's London England) and there is no sound like his. Go directly to sicranstoun.com, that's S-i C-r-a-n-s-t-o-u-n. The new double album by Eminem is also available now entitled the Marshall Mathers LP 2. Em stated recently that his album is not a sequel to MMLP1, but a revisitation. The new album has 21 tracks of his mean lean and clean rap stylings. Many say he has lost no edge but improved in this effort. I haven't got the album yet, but it's on my to do list.  Comedy- In comedy, Conan O'Brien just celebrated 20 years of late night television. NBC even lent or rented him clips of his previous show. That guy is my hero. So few actual redheads have made it in showbiz, and the ones that I used to think were so imagine were redheads from the bottle. C'mon, you guys don't have to get all the side-effects, sunburns, growing up uncool. Conan Conan Conan! Looks like he's not only survived his transition to TBS, but has flourished. Burlesque- The Iowa Burlesque Festival just wrapped up and it featured the one and only legendary Tempest Storm. (I have no idea why more Vegas don't have her as a guest - This magnanimous performer still turns heads and makes headlines. She's back in Vegas now, and back to filming the new documentary about her life. She says she wants to leave a legacy for all her fans, that have stood by her all these years.  Culture- In culture there's been a lot of 50 anniversaries this week. We've just passed the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. The, there was the 50th anniversary of Dr. Who, and last but not least the 50th anniversary was reached this year by the James Bond film franchise. Incidentally, if you like addictive free games, Doodle Googles made fun one to honor the Dr. Who anniversary. My best time was 12 minutes. Let me know if you can beat that, it's really fun. Just search Google Doodles Dr. Who. 

This week's backing track is by my sister Chase Frank. Listen and buy her music at chasefrank.com
