    That's true....rating's would plummet...if someone who looked average was seen up front It's all calculated for the viewer's enjoyment...it's the "Dallas"/"Dynasty" thinking of programming....beautiful people sell and bring in ratings....perceived ugly people belong on "Springer" and shows of that ilk.

    The Fixx wanted to cover Maroon 5 on Hit Me Baby...

    Harder to Breathe was their choice (good one - love that song!).

    Also Oukast's "Hey Ya"!

    He also comments on it in the Greensboro, NC interview that Wingo posted a link to today.

    Speaking of the '80s, what's your take on the NBC show "Hit Me One More Time," where 1980s bands compete by playing current songs? "

    "We were asked to do it, but we turned it down because we couldn't get the second song sorted out and the certain song they picked for us wasn't right. And we felt like if we went for it we would make us look a little desperate in front of 40 million people. And you know, I'd rather have my health in a smaller world than turn into a disastrous misconception in a larger picture."

    Reflectiions......

    Milwaukee reflections.....

    After hitting the Boxkar website ,,,,I have to say again.... as stated earlier in Concert Etiquette......

    ....It takes a lot of guts to get up there and display your dreams and art to a bunch of people who think they know what you are all about....And everyone who has pursued this dream has been there....and we, as the audience should at least respect their efforts with dignity that they had the courage to go after them ...whether they are new on the scene..... or reliving a "one more time" opportunity to display that dream again.... so I am humbled ..and ask that all my judgement of "hit me" be absolved... Milwaukee was quite an eye opener ....in many ways...

    Bands Reunited or Hit Me Baby One More time?

    If any of you have seen either of these shows which do you prefer and why?

    I prefer Bands reunited from VH1 rather than NBC's HMBOMT. Bands Reunited is a bit more in depth and specific to one group. It just seems that HMBOMT is a spin off and only teases you with very little info on the band. I did however record all episodes of HMBOMT and most episodes of Bands Reunited.

    Thanks for viewing,
