Gavin DeGraw 'Chariot'

I watched the season premiere of ‘Lost’ this morning and I’m still as mildly perplexed as I was when I started watching the show. I LOVE IT!

Then I watched the pilot of ‘Invasion’ after ‘Lost’. What surprised me the most?

The show was created by the former 70’s teen idol, Shaun Cassidy. He is also the Executive Producer. And, if that were not enough, he wrote the pilot episode. Who says there’s no life after good looks and Parker Stevenson?

The show still hasn’t warmed me up yet, but I’m going to give it another shot next week.

It reminds me a little of the sci-fi show from the 60’s called ‘Invaders’. Now that’s a show I’d like to see in reruns or on DVD. I loved it when I was a kid and I’m wondering if it still holds up today.

They revised the series in the 90’s or late 80’s with Richard Thomas (aka John Boy Walton) and it was awful. Thank Confucius that it didn’t last long.

I finally watched the pilot of ‘Surface’ and I’m digging it all right. Not as good as ‘Threshold’ but it’s something different than a friggin’ reality show. And, it’s better than a reality show.

I found out from you guys (the readers) that ‘Everybody Hates Chris’ debuts on UPN tonight. Thanks for giving me a heads up!

I recently worked another wedding with DJ Coup Delicious. He works on the side as a photographer as well as a party jock. Coup ended up directing part of the wedding since they didn’t hire one. I ended up in the mix as well because someone had to tell the carriage driver that was delivering the bride to take off.

The full moon was beautiful that night. The sky was clear with a few dark, high clouds rolling by from time to time. As they passed in front of the moon, the clouds turned silver around the edges. Some clouds weren’t thick enough to obscure our earth’s satellite and they became like huge transparent, fluffy light bulbs hovering lazily in the sky with the moon as nature’s filament. I just wanted to lie down on the ground and watch the show, but Coup D insisted that I earn the money that he was paying me.

So, I went back to watching celebratory drunks dance it up to the “Electric Slide” and gave the DJ a hand where I could.

The last wedding that I worked (I wrote about it in a previous blog), the caterers gave up the bar and the inmates ran wild in the asylum. This time, the booze ran out very quickly.

They spent a BIG chunk of change on a horse and carriage, but neglected the attendee’s need for alcoholic party lubrication. I knew there was trouble when I only saw two cases of Bud Lite being iced by the bar staff. They had a good deal of wine, but to my trained eyes and liver, it wasn’t going to be enough. I forgot all about my beverage of choice and went quickly for the wine, which yields more alcohol by volume.

Coup D asked me if I would get him a refill of wine and when I brought it back to him, he took a big sip and spat it out into the bushes.

“What is this?” he asked.

I asked him what could be wrong with it.

“Taste it,” he said.

The bar staff had watered down the wine in order to make it last longer. It was 9:30 and the party was going until 11. Signs were not good, but everything turned out all right. As the booze thinned out, so did the crowd.

The one thing that puzzles me… Where did the writers of ‘Wedding Crashers’ get their idea for the film?

In the two weddings that I’ve attended this summer, I have noticed NO single women at these things. The only single females are 14 and under. Every one is paired up. So, where did those writers get the idea for the movie?

Burns me up to no end.
