The more things change, the more they suck

Watched the Boston Pops for the Fourth of July. Previous years highlights' included Cyndi Lauper obscenely grinding against the conductor, so my hopes were high.

Sadly, the musical guests were Steven Tyler and Joe Perry. The vocal range... not there anymore. Still looks like his face is made of silly putty, still has a bunch of shit on the microphone stand, sounds like ass. His built-in excuse was that he recently had throat surgery, but still. Wayne Newton sounded better when we went to see him a few years ago, and Wayne is 107 years old. Of course, he's also a consummate entertainer.

I watched them on TV too. I agree, Areosmith wasn't so good. And the hosts -- awful! They had Dr. Phil and some girl who couldn't read off the freaking tele-prompter!

I didn't know you could watch them out on the West Coast.

Yes, Dr. Phil was terrible. So was Mrs. Phil.

Yeah, it was televised nationally on CBS starting at 10pm.

i watched the end of the one on pbs. I might be an asshole, which I am, but additionally fire works don't really do anything for me.

Now if I had a blowjob everytime I saw fireworks, that would really be something

Boston Pops are awesome!

I'm with you, Jiggs, I don't really like fireworks. The only thing I like about the holiday is Keith. Keith Lockhart owns this town. He owns the Fourth of July. And I love watching him conduct with a happy grin that just says, "I'm Keith Lockhart, bitch!"
