Reports are that Aerosmith’s Steven Tyer and Jennifer Lopez (J-lo) will be replacement Idol judges joining Randy Jackson. At one time there were over 30 million viewers watching American Idol. Now that is down 20 percent. is this major change what the series needs? Neither is a spring chicken. Tyler is 62 and J-Lo is 41.

Ellen Degeneres announced she is leaving American Idol. Actually she told Idol producers two month ago. On her website Ellen said:

“A couple months ago, I let FOX and the “American Idol” producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for me. I told them I wouldn’t leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next. It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for. I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on “Idol” and I am very grateful for the year I had. I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be.”

As one of the few people in America who has never watched American Idol, I really don’t care if Ellen goes. Of even if the whole show does. Sorry!

Chelsea Clinton's Porta PottyThere was a discusion about the upcoming Chelsea Clinto wedding in Rhnebeck, New York. What was more interesting is the $15,000 in port-potties. Not only hot water but a stereo system. They are nicer than my own bathroom! How about yours? 

For those that are wondering, yes I am back. Had surgery for a detached and torn Retina with a number of complications while I was in Florida. Went through similar problems in my right eye two years ago. While I lost some of my vision and have other residual issues, am very glad for what I do still have.

This blockbuster is titled “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid” and from the preview the title is the biggest thing about this movie. Do not see any pythons or gatoroids in the preview.
