No, I Mean It - I'm NOT Going

For those of you who didn't catch Jennifer Holliday's train wreck crazyton performance on E's Countdown to the Red Carpet.

My favorite is that no one seems to be watching - that and that she seems to be having a grand mal seizure.

I love you Ms Holliday - but seriously its time to pass the torch.

HMDWL Justin from "Ugly Betty"

So how much do we love Justin from "Ugly Betty"

this clip is from this past week - he was on the subway on his way to see "Hairspray" with his mom and estranged dad (who's not too thrilled with Justin's love of B'way).

I just love this kid. Seeing a kid like me on TV sure would have been nice when I was his age. I LOVE this kid.

High Note to End All High Notes

Ok - so I know this is a week late - but I can't stop thinking about Xtina A at the Grammys. She was amazing - she sang "This is a Man's World" in a tribute to the late/crazy James Brown. And talk about a brown note. She hit a note that caused many people to worry that she was actually passing a kidney stone and Britney to shave her head in mourning for her own career.

Sex with Grammy Grams

So this lovely old woman - was recently sent to jail - for having sex with her 11 yo foster child. nice. Well done, Georgia.

So gross.

"Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" 2007!

Last year, The Daily Purge raised $751 during the 1st Annual "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?" Fundraising Campaign. With those donations, we were able to buy new sound equipment for the studio, an external hard drive to preserve past episodes, a year's worth of web hosting, and one round of drinks for JMH & Rob.

This year, we are striving to double that amount for a very urgent reason... to keep Rob Lindley on the air! As you have been able to hear, Rob's current computer, The Sony Vaio from 1842, is on it's last legs and it has caused a lot of audio issues with our show. We have all enjoyed Rob Lindley on both The Daily Purge and How Much Do We Love... podcasts and to keep doing what he does best, he needs a new computer... DESPERATELY!

So, here we go!
If you would like to donate to "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" this year,

Hey kids - if you wanna watch a clip of my show go to Stage Channel. I'm in Clip Two.

They filmed this early early in the morning. Its a fun clip - but of course when I watch it I think I look a little tie, tie in it.

Anyway - enjoy.

And if you're in the Chicago area - come see my show! Let me know when you come so I can say hey to you. For info go to Writers' Theatre's website

Yes Please! Today's "The View"

So, if you've been listening to "the Purge" lately you know that we have both become 40 yr old ladies and enjoy our daily dose of "The View" - I NEVER thought it would happen.

Today - a REALLY special treat for me. Christine Ebersole was one and talke about - you guessed it - my number one obesssion (for the moment) Grey Gardens. A wonderful little debate developed about whether or not the Beales are crazy or inspiring. It was WONDERFUL to hear Christine say the same thing I have been trying to explain to people for months now. So many people (like Joy B.) just go on and on about what crazy bitches they were - but Christine like myself finds them to be heros.

God I love her.

My gay besties, Bil and Brad are headed to NYC to see it this weekend. I wish I were going again.

Sweet Jesus - Sondra Prill

One of the guys in my show found Sondra Prill for me - please, please, please find everything you can on this amazing woman - and ENJOY.

Best Thing About Last Week's UGLY BETTY?

Katherine McPhee?

Tim Gunn? - close - very close

There was a wonderful line about UGG Boots being completely OUT. Thank you UGLY BETTY for bringing the message to the masses. I don't want to see them anymore.

Except in this picture

Scariest Person on TV

alexis arquette scares the crap out of me.

he was so pretty when he was a boy.

At the end of "Top Design" it seriously looked like Hedwig and Iggy Pop's lovechild had emerged as the "mystery client"

what college theatre is all about...

Chicago = The North Pole

It is so cold today in Chicago... the high today is 4. These are my hands right now.

not really, but that's what frostbite look like, so wear gloves.... or you will have grape hands... grape.

A NEW Purge tomorrow!

Well my darlings, I know that we have strayed from the schedule. So consider this to be the answer to all of the emails that I have received asking me if we have died or come down with consumption.... the true is, I had a mean case of the vapors, but that's neither here nor there. We are trying our best to make sure the shows we put out are quality bits of podcasting rather than simply thrown together piles of bullshit. SO, now that we have a better idea of what our schedules are going to be like, we should be able to get back in the groove.
We LOVE you and we appreciate your anticipation. Look for a new episode tomorrow with a BRAND NEW story.

xoxo, JMH & Rob.
