I watch a lot of awards shows, and often the celebrities are so jaded, it’s uncomfortable to watch them win. They come across arrogant or bored or even embarrassed to be there.
So it’s fun to watch someone win their first award — after decades in the business — and be joyful and sincere and probably win over an entire new demographic of fans in the process.
Good for you, Craig. I’ve always voted for you.

I got my first look at a Go Pro camera in an electronics store in the Cincinnati Airport over Halloween weekend. I had seen video footage from one before, but the clips they had on a loop at the store entrance sucked me right in.
So I completely understand why this squirrel felt the need to ‘grab and go.’
He’s a pretty good cameraman, yes?

Lots of people make spectacles of themselves — the Egg included — but this guy is doing it for all the right reasons:
So if you see him — and his very large ball — in your travels, connect!

The broadcast and online media outlets have all gone gooey-eyed over the way NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams announced his own daughter Allison’s casting in the plum role of Peter Pan in the network’s upcoming live action production —
No tears here.
I demand that the full investigative reporting resources at NBC News be hurled at this story, which reeks of nepotism, entitlement and…dare I say, piracy.
J.M. Barrie said it best:
“Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if
you your daddy will sacrifice everything else for it.”

My blog, Facebook and Twitter feeds of late have been filled with praise for The Bridges of Madison County, which ended its too-short Broadway run this past Sunday.
I was fortunate enough to see the show twice, including its final performance. But for those of you who were not able to attend — and perhaps have smiled indulgently at my near-obsessive behavior — I wanted to give you a taste of the quality performance I enjoyed.
Here’s Steven Pasquale performing “It All Fades Away” for the studio recording. (The note at 3:20 literally fills your head during the live performance.)

I loved the musical sketch “Boy Dance Party” when it aired on Saturday Night Live way back in October. Bruce Willis and all the guys dancing around the living room while the girls were away?
If possible, it has been made even better with the addition of a very enthusiastic toddler.
His parents won’t let people embed the video, but you can still enjoy it on Youtube.
(I like the kid way better than them.)
