Good men through the ages, tryin’ to find the sun
I'm not a fan of country music, but at TiVo's suggestion, I recorded Crossroads the other night. It's a show on CMT where they pair artists of different (though adjacent) genres. This show put John Fogerty and Keith Urban on stage together. Since I'm a big CCR fan and also a big fan of hot guys in jeans with Aussie accents, I checked it out. Great stuff, people. Fogerty seems a bit distracted (read: drug-addled) but Keith Urban is charming and funny and can wear the hell out of a t-shirt. I checked and I didn't see any repeats upcoming, but check it out if you get a chance. These two on a leather banquette doing an unplugged rendition of Rambunctious Boy...that alone is worth the price of admission.
While we're talking TV, can I say one more thing about The Book of Daniel? I know I went on about it before AND that it's already canceled, but they are broadcasting the unaired episodes online here. This week's episode is easily the best of the series. It deals with the aftermath of Peter's gay-bashing. The episode is a bit complex because scenes time jump between now and 3 weeks previous when the assault occurred and also 2 years previous when Peter's twin Jimmy died of leukemia. Wait! It's really, really good. So well done and better than 90% of the dramas on network tv. It really is reminiscent of Six Feet Under. And if crying is your thing, I sobbed guys. Tears, snot, sobbing. PS No commercials so it's only 43 minutes!
