Daniel Craig returns as James Bond in SPECTRE

SPECTREA new trailer for the next James Bond film, SPECTRE,  has just been released. The latest addition to the James Bond franchise sees Daniel Craig reprising his role as the infamous MI6 spy for a fourth time, following the worldwide success of 2012’s Skyfall, which I loved despite the fact that it killed off Judi Dench.

SPECTRE is scheduled to open in theaters on Friday, November 6, 2015.

Taye Diggs and I are Twitter buds

Taye Diggs TwitterI don’t pay that much attention to how many followers I have on Twitter, but last week I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw that Taye Diggs started following me. I still think that it might have been a mistake on his part – although we both do share a love for Broadway musicals.

I’ve been obsessing over Taye Diggs ever since I saw late 90s movie How Stella Got Her Groove Back.  In my opinion, this Hollywood / Broadway star has only become better looking and more interesting with age.

Chalk this post up to me bragging (and flirting just a bit in case Mr. Diggs ever sees this post). I know he doesn’t fancy men but that won’t stop me from fancying him.

You too can follow me on Twittah here:  @BosGuy.

These three ladies do an excellent job.  See if you can keep up with them.

Saturday night video: Repeat stuff

Kind of love this parody of pop singers like Justin Bieber and One Direction. Of course it doesn’t hurt that you get to watch Max Emerson perform this cover in an unbuttoned shirt with the very cute Tom Goss strumming his guitar.

Kylie Minogue Mighty Aphrodite tour

Kylie MinogueLast Saturday I came home after a fun night out but couldn’t sleep so I started watching a broadcast of the 2011 Kylie Minogue Mighty Aphrodite tour.  Kylie kicked off her US tour in Boston in late April 2011 and watching the broadcast brought back many happy memories and made me realize how much I would like to see her back here performing.

What was one of your favorite live performances of all time?

Saturday night video: SNL Serial Parody

OMG this is hilarious.  The SNL skit appeared during the holidays when I was out of the country so much thanks to my friend Tracey for telling me about it.   I was absolutely addicted to the Serial Podcast and this is brilliantly done.

Christina Aguilera “Wheel of Musical Impressions” on Jimmy Fallon

Last night season eight of The Voice premiered (does this show ever go off air?) and Christina Aguilera is back once again as a coach.  To promote the show she joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.  Jimmy asked her to play “Wheel of Musical Impressions” where she had to channel the likes of Cher, Brittany and Shakira.  She was flawless and perhaps at her best singing The Folger’s jingle as Cher, but even Brittany fans are likely to love her version of how Ms. Spears might sing “This Little Piggy”.  Say what you will but sitting down without any heads up she does a better live impersonation of Brittany Spears than Brittany could.
