Arrest pastor Kevin Swanson?

“I believe that the words of Iowa Pastor Kevin Swanson at last weekend’s so-called National Religious Liberties Conference, and on many previous occasions, may well meet the definition of incitement to illegal action and that he should be arrested under available federal statutes, in order to determine whether his speech legally qualifies as incitement.”


Pauley Perrette, one of our greatest allies, was attacked outside her home. Thankfully, she’s okay, physically. Here is her harrowing story.

Closing out our week with Seth, last year he released Seth’s Broadway Diaries, using his vast knowledge to give an insider’s view to the Great White Way

He also posts a fabulous series to his Youtube page titled “Deconstruction,” in which he deconstructs the singing voices of Broadway stars and goes in-depth with Broadway shows. We’ll be taking a look at some of those deconstructions this week along with his other accomplishments.

Here is the deconstruction of Idina Menzel

Thanks to Greggarious for the Shoutout suggestion!


Three years ago I presented my personal favorite Briefs list, The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s, and because if there’s one thing Hollywood has taught us, it’s that sequels and reboots and remakes are ALWAYS better then the original, we’re going to the well again with The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s Part 2: The Even More Forgotten

We’ll be spotlighting 100 more of the greatest minor hits of the decade, the songs you don’t hear on any 80’s nostalgia show. Songs that missed the top ten, or top twenty … or top forty. Hopefully these forgotten gems may ring a long dormant bell, or for younger readers, provide a pop music history lesson.

At #67 is “Escalator Of Life” by Robert Hazard

Robert Hazard only hit the chart once, but it was with a new wave classic. “Escalator Of Life” hit #58 in April 1983. Sadly, Robert passed away following surgery for pancreatic cancer in 2008.

He may be gone, but Robert’s legacy will live forever in pop music history. He wrote “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.” Here’s his original demo, recorded in 1979.
