Hodgepodge of random comments

Have you heard about the new Harry Potter theme park? I would love to go! Won't that be so cool? We could all hang out in Hogsmeade!

Coming to Orlanda in 2009: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Also, the Cavs are in the NBA finals??? No way! OK, you know I don't follow sports, but I managed to catch this headline. How exciting! Is Cleveland ever in the finals for anything??? Woot-woot! Yay for LeBron!

I recently checked out Kelly Clarkson's new video. I know the song is about her ex dumping her for some other chick, but I wonder what the meaning of the video is. If you catch the beginning, it's almost like the dude murdered his girlfriend (Kelly) so then she immediately haunts him afterward but then turns out to be alive in the end. ???? Check it out and send me your thoughts.

And I happy to note that summer TV doesn't really suck. :) I've been digging So You Think You Can Dance lately - there are some really amazing dancers on that show. And tomorrow night is the premiere of Kathy Griffin's My Life on the D-List... OK, yes, she's obnoxious but she's also HILARIOUS. If you have Bravo, check it out. I'm sure there are lots of other good shows coming out soon, here's one list in case you're interested.

I also saw Pirates this weekend. Long movie!!! It was good, though... but I think I enjoyed the first two more. They went a little overboard with Jack Sparrow - sure he's the main thrill in the movies but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Not only did they have multiple Jack Sparrows in several scenes, but they also had his dad (played by Depp's original inspiration, Keith Richards) and it was just too much! Plus I didn't remember the first two that much so it took me awhile to remember things like that Black Pearl and Flying Dutchmen were ships and stuff. Actually most of the stuff in that movie went over my head, similar to the second one. But it still had its funny moments so I suppose it's worth seeing on the big screen.

Like most pop stars, I don't think Kelly Clarkson actually writes her own songs or knows what they're about.

OK, first of all, never knock Kelly on this blog. I LOVE her.

:P OK just teasing. (but I do love her)

I think that was true for her first two albums but not this one. I heard that's why she got in a big ole feud with the head of her record label (that ole geezer Clive Davis) - because she wanted to write her own songs and they thought they were too dark. There was a big article about it in EW.
