One of our favorite Jack scenes. Sean Hayes--what an actor!!
For all you aspiring thespians in HELL-A, this would make a great exercise.
Memorize Jack's lines and say them as fast as you can but clearly.
Lee Strasberg-- look out!!
JACK: [ENTERING, SPEAKING VERY QUICKLY AND SCATTERED] Hey, friends, lovers, mothers, and other strangers. You're never going to believe what happened to me. Oh, my gosh! Did you see that? I almost did the half nelson. I almost bruised my delicates, my delicates, my domo arigato Mr. Tomatoes. Huge news! I have met-- Are you ready for this? Mr. Right. Well, Mr. Right-Now, anyway. Ba-da-bum! Good night, folks, I'm here all week. Jack 2000! He works over at the Jumpin' Java. You know that coffee shop on 72nd? And his name is Paul. He is cute with a capital "Q"! And the busier it gets, the hotter he gets. And the hotter he gets, the sweatier he gets. And the sweatier he gets-- I forgot where I'm going with this, but the point is... Me likey he, and he likey me. And the best part is-- Shazam-- he gives me free iced coffee every time I go in, which is every hour on the hour. Thank you very much! And occasionally on the half hour! [SING-SONG] Bah-da-da-da-da! Blblblbt! [JACK EXITS]
A very Happy Birthday to one of the world's greatest drummers, Regina Ann.
House of Schock is an all-time favorite album. It was a record that was so overlooked, not only by the industry but the buying consumer.
All the songs are musical masterpieces especially Love In Return, such a beautifully written-- lyrically and musically--- fall-in-love/breakup song.
The Piano!! Can we talk? Can an instrument convey such sadness and loss?? With this song, YES it can!!
Absolutely love Schock's Baltimore twang in this song.
Capitol Records was such a scrooge when it came time to promote the album for Gina and Vance (DeGenerous).
Love in Return:
Gina Schock (born Regina Ann Schock on August 31, 1957 in Baltimore, Maryland) is the drummer for The Go-Go's.
Schock's career began as drummer for Edie and the Eggs, a band assembled to feature the John Waters star Edith Massey. After her stint in Edie and the Eggs, Schock relocated to Los Angeles, and soon joined The Go-Go's. Schock recorded and toured steadily with The Go-Go's until the group disbanded in 1985 and reformed a few years later. She currently lives in San Francisco.
Following the dissolution of The Go-Go's, Schock continued drumming with various artists, and would also hone her singing and songwriting skills. In 1987, she joined with Vance DeGeneres and formed House of Schock, which released one album for Capitol Records.
The Go-Go's reformed in 1990; Schock has toured and recorded with them since. She also works as a writer and producer for new bands. She is currently working with The Go-Go's on an all-girl teen band project for Disney called The Po-Go's, to be released in the summer of 2008. Her drumming continues to gather critical acclaim.
Schock's songs have appeared in films including The Accused, Superstar, and Bull Durham. She has acted for television and in several films, including those of underground director Relah Eckstein.
The Wall Street Journal reports that [Novak] Djokovic has been spending time in a"rare, $75,000, egg-shaped, bobsled-sized pressure chamber" since last year's U.S. Open. The pod, made by a company called CVAC, is said to help stimulate vigorous exercise and improves athletic performance by increasing circulation, adding oxygen-rich blood cells to the body and expelling lactic acid.
The CVAC Pod is fancier than the hyperbaric chambers you've probably heard about; it stimulates high altitude training to compress muscles using a vacuum pump and computer-controlled valves. Unlike other contraptions, CVAC say the conditions in its pod can be adapted for various training purposes.
In terms of helping the body absorb oxygen, the pod is claimed to be twice as effective as blood doping. Better yet, it's infinitely more legal. The World Anti-Doping Agency has not banned these types of oxygen tents and pods even though it says they violate "the spirit of sport." Further testing is being done to determine whether devices like CVAC's pod will continue to be approved for use.
Splashed on the front page of this morning's The New York Times, the daily ponders that very question:
In the past year, in a relatively extreme makeover, Djokovic changed his serve, his diet, his publicist, his fitness regimen and, because of all of this, his standing in men’s tennis.
The next phase — making Djokovic a household name, among the world’s biggest sports stars — will continue next week in the United States Open, where he was named Wednesday the No. 1 seed in the men’s draw. While Djokovic has surpassed his rivals Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer on the tennis court, he now hopes to at least join those two, who both reside on Forbes magazine’s list of the top 10 most powerful athletes, in areas such as endorsements, fame and global exposure.
