Joni Mitchell Calls Bob Dylan a ‘Fake’

In Uncategorized on April 27, 2010 at 7:08 am

Joni Mitchell has a couple of things in common with Bob Dylan.

Both are folk rock icons. Both, too, have stage names. Mitchell used to be known as Roberta Joan Anderson, while Dylan’s given name was Robert Zimmerman.

Interestingly, Joni was being interviewed by the Los Angeles Times when the name change comparison was brought up. She responded by labeling Dylan a “fake” and a “plagiarist.”

Bob is not authentic at all,” Mitchell said. “He’s a plagiarist, and his name and voice are fake. Everything about Bob is a deception.”

She insists that she is nothing like the minstrel of Malibu. “We are like night and day, he and I,” Joni said.

She chalked up the difference between her original surname and the stage version to her marriage.

As for my name, my parents wanted a boy, so they called me Robert John; when I came out a girl, they just added two letter ‘A’s to that. Then I married Chuck Mitchell; I wanted to keep my maiden name – I had a bit of a following as Joni Anderson – but he wouldn’t let me,” Mitchell said.

Wasn’t there another famous person whose original name was Barry Soetoro?


Conan Says No to NBC

In Uncategorized on January 12, 2010 at 1:49 pm


Conan O’Brien has explicitly rejected NBC’s planned move of ”The Tonight Show” to a 12:05 am start so that Jay Leno could have his 11:35 pm slot back.

O’Brien issued a statement pointing out that NBC only allowed seven months for the red-headed comedian to get his version of the show off the ground.

His statement began:

“People of Earth:

In the last few days, I’ve been getting a lot of sympathy calls, and I want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second feeling sorry for me. For 17 years, I’ve been getting paid to do what I love most and, in a world with real problems, I’ve been absurdly lucky. That said, I’ve been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my bosses are demanding an immediate decision. …”

Conan’s statement went on to say that “for 60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news,” and that delaying the show “into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting.” …

“So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is for me to consider losing it. My staff and I have worked unbelievably hard and we are very proud of our contribution to the legacy of The Tonight Show. But I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is its destruction. Some people will make the argument that with DVRs and the Internet a time slot doesn’t matter. But with the Tonight Show, I believe nothing could matter more.

There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set the record straight, I currently have no other offer and honestly have no idea what happens next. My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of, for a company that values our work.

Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair; it’s always been that way.

Syndicated television psychologist Dr. Phil McGraw may inadvertently be assisting federal prosecutors.

McGraw had a San Marcos, California couple on as guests, and the relaxed atmosphere of the show, along with the good doctor’s beguiling manner, had his guests announcing on national TV that they’d been fencing stolen property.

Thanks to some boasting by 34-year-old Matthew Eaton and his 26-year-old wife Laura on an episode of “Dr. Phil,” it was revealed that the couple procured a cool $100,000 by stealing toys and selling them on eBay. Excerpt – for more CLICK HERE

The New Harry Potter Flick is Fad and Formula

In Uncategorized on July 18, 2009 at 6:58 am

“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” brought in $58 million on its opening day. Most critics seem to like it.

I don’t. I’m tired of the same old H.P. formula. Harry goes to school, learns new tricks to fight the cardboard villain and display C.G.I. along the way.

Rating: 4 and 1/2 yawns.
