Thursday Ad Watch

I don't approve of golf. But apparently I approve of men playing it.

Song of the Day: 'My Sharona' by The Knack

All sorts of once famous (and notorious) people wind up working in real estate -- Haviland Morris of "Sixteen Candles," Tony "Heartbeat" DeFranco and sugar-daddy aficionado Brett Jordan come to mind. But I can't think of one I'd rather chat up more than the inspiration behind The Knack's enduring New Wave hit! 

It seems 26-year-old singer Doug Fieger had a thing for 17-year-old Sharona Alperin -- not unlike my parents' inappropriate relationship in the late 1950s -- and although he eventually got her to go out with him for a while, it still sounds, well, inappropriate, albeit in more of a Jerry Seinfeld/Shoshanna Lonstein kind of way.

Remains of the Day (04/24)

Closer: How Betty White's real-life friendship with Mary Tyler Moore almost kept her from becoming the Happy Homemaker (ICYMI)

The New York Times: What does it tell you that election-security officials were warned to not tell the so-called president of the United States about their 2020 efforts

The New York Times: Does it strike anyone else as odd that not one of the 50 people interviewed for a new film about human sexuality would say they are "completely gay"? My friend says the kids don't want to be "limited" in their dating options (eye roll) -- so everyone's "queer" and "pansexual" -- but I'd argue there's an element of homophobia in that no one wants to be seen as "just gay" anymore ... or is it just garden-variety "need to feel special" syndrome?

Song of the Day: 'Our Lips Are Sealed' by Susanna Hoffs and Belinda Carlisle

'80s ladies: Molly Ringwald, Susanna Hoffs, Belinda Carlisle and Debora Iyall

This one's notable for a few reasons: It's sung by the lead babes of the two biggest female bands of all time; I was in the audience at the Largo the night it was recorded; and, shockingly (to me), it was the last time I was in Los Angeles -- after having gone every year since leaving in 1993! I miss you, L.A. :-(
