So Different From this Hell I'm Living

"Annnnd we're back...Is the caller there?" As PHIL DONAHUE* used to say after the commercial break. Sorry for the long absence.
I've been so busy working that I have been quite remiss in my duties as a blogger. Please don't tell the National Union of Bloggers (NUB) or my membership may be in jeopardy!

In any event, when we last spoke I left you with the stunning triumph of singer, SUSAN BOYLE, on "Britian's Got Talent" So much has happened to Miss Boyle since then & much of it unhappy. She got the required makeover (new coiffure, serious eyebrow tweeze, new wardrobe...including a leather "biker" jacket) and even a new moniker: "SuBo" as she is now known on the net. In short, she has been turned into a commodity. And like all commodities, she seems destined to be consumed & DEVOURED as quickly as possible; so we can all move on to "the next big thing"

Oh & she LOST the competition... to a not untalented dance troop whom oddsmakers had placed 6th to finish! And oh yea! She is now in a sort of mental hospital for a "rest" I hope she gets that rest. And then rallies to perform concerts all over the world & share her gift with us. But nothing speaks to the condition of fame in this century so well as the contrast between Miss Boyle in triumph the first night we discovered her to the sad, sad, image of Susan in the back of a limo with an outsized & ugly bouquet of flowers in her lap; looking positively bereft! Just keep singing Miss Boyle. No matter what, just keep singing!

*For those of you who don't know who PHIL DONAHUE is think of DR. PHIL but smarter, handsomer, funnier, more talented, better dressed, not a fake doctor, with better guests & topics & a real celebrity wife in the person of MARLO THOMAS. Oh for Christ's sake GOOGLE him!
