I just read in TV Guide that my favorite new show this season, Life On Mars, has been cancelled. The show is about policeman Sam Tyler who has an accident in 2008 and wakes up in 1973. Now he tries to find out why he is there and how he can get back to 2008. The cancellation is sad to me as the American version is one that I made sure that I was at home to watch or tape and on rare times watch on line. The show itself was very good and it had a great soundtrack. I hope they will release a soundtrack album. It has been a long time since I heard songs by Elton John, Ringo Starr, David Bowie etc. sometimes all on the same episode. My favorite came with episode #12 in the show titled "The Simple Secret of the Note in Us All." In the opening scene they use the song "It Don't Come Easy" by Ringo Starr. Harvey Keitel's character Gene Hunt comes around the corner and that image with the song just seemed so cool. Ringo should be very happy with that video on ABC for his song. If you want to see it or any episode you can click here for the full player on ABC.com

No I am not really selling these. This all started when I was looing do see if there were any hats with Captain America or Plastic Man on them since I am not a Tee Shirt kind of guy. I have them but I rarely wear them. Anyway I found that there are some with the Captain but none were found for Plas. I went to a site were you can make custom hats. I decided to use them to promote my sites. However, one thing kept me from doing it. The cost. The reason I am not telling the name of the site is because the cost seemed low at the time. But it only covered the hat. By the time they added in other cost it was too much. But the previews of the hats looked good so I am sharing them with you on the sites I did them for.

Recently two broadcasting legends died who meant a lot to me. Broadcasting was my major in school. I had hoped to make my living with it. While that didn't happen I still take it hard when something like this happens. I can't yet form the words to espress how I feel at the passing of children's show host Uncle Al or broadcaster Paul Harvey. Till I can at least for Uncle Al, this behind the scenes video of Uncle Al will have to do. Look at how happy everyone seems in this home movie from youtube.com. This is how he made all kids feel. The video is silent so nothing is wrong with your computer.
