who's a Jew?

How good was the George Michael show? I PAID to buy one of his newer albums from itunes today, that's how good. The personal high point for me was when he sang "A different corner" because I didn't expect him to do that one and that's a personal favorite. During the first half I was a little disappointed that the show, as spectacular as it was, wasn't more homoerotic, but right about the time he busted out the cop outfit to sing "Outside" I was satisfied. He was really charming and loose, and he's still got the chops. He has some seriously loyal fans because he sang all these club-type songs I wasn't familiar with and the crowd got totally stoked. I loved it all, but DP was pretty disturbed by the cover of "Roxanne". I just pretended it wasn't happening. We both agreed that he phoned in "Careless Whisper" during the encore. Actually, it was more like he faxed in a picture of a phone. But he wrote that song when he was sixteen, so I can't blame him.

Fun George Michael facts: his real name is Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou and he's Jewish!

Actually, that new Adam Sandler movie "Don't Mess with the Zohan" is loosely based off of his life. Or so David Paul told me.

I believe I said The Zohan was based on his loose life. But I won't begrudge details.

Now that i think about it, I belive you said,

"Drinking Zima with Heckamax is like listening to 'I'm Loose' with Adam Sandeler."
