Recording Artists Who Would Make Good Dictators

Actually, Elvis Presley was the perfect dictator. Think about it: he lived in complete isolation from his adoring throng, he was rash and impulsive (see shooting the TV and fried banana sandwiches), mentally unbalanced (see obsessiveness towards Mama), suffered fools gladly, and created a massive cult of personality that still exists today. These are the characteristics of a successful dictator.

read on the Dr. Phil message boards

Have you caught Letterman lately, with his "Words of Wisdom from Dr. Phil"? You know, Dr. Phil used to be married to Oprah.

His success is a sure sign the Apocalypse is near. I'm hot-tailing it to Canada.

Entertainers Who Put Their Significant Other In A Music Video

I recall Michael Bolton was once dating Ashley Judd, and she appeared in a video of one of his insipid songs. And even though they weren't videos in the truest sense, John and Yoko did spend a lot of time together on film promoting his/their songs.

Movies In Which Lil' Kim Should Have Been Cast

I dunno, the way she dresses sometimes, you'd think she was auditioning for a porn film. At least she wouldn't have to change her name.

Hats off to Amie for the origin to this list. Don't sweat the novel; my has been part of a love/hate relationship for the past 6 years, but I think I've reconsiled with it a lot lately.

[songs] the future soundtrack to the future movie based on my not-yet-begun novel

Geez, this is so cool. I thought I was the only one who, on a daily basis, was compiling a soundtrack to his 3/4-done, not-yet-published, future National Book Award winning novel...

I'll have to post mine as well soon!

Baseball, Best Players of all time by position

I can't argue with your outfield, although I may subsitute Ty Cobb, asshole behavior and all, for Mantle. However, Pudge Fisk is a HOFer because of his work ethic and longevity, but he's by no means better than Berra, or in today's generation, Ivan Rodriguez or Mike Piazza. My third baseman is a toss-up between Mike Schmidt and George Brett. Oh, and who's your reliever?

I think these lists should include 25 players, since 25 make a roster, not 9 positions. Hence, you'd see more pitchers and other outfielders that usually don't make these lists.

By the way, you're not from New England, are you???

The Lessons Elvis Didn't Learn From Beatles One

Damn! I was just about to purchase Elvis 30 # 1...

Wonder if the new Stones greatest hits album is worth buying as well?

Decisions, decisions...
