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.)
If you’ve read The Sticky Egg with any regularity, you’ve got a strong stomach…and you’ve also probably noticed my girlie crush — veering on obsession — with Craig Ferguson, host of The Late Late Show on CBS.
What can I say? He moves me.
On last night’s program, Craig opened the show by discussing his latest quandary:
Should he put the earring back in his left ear?
Craig removed the jewel when he started hosting the show six years ago, and had planned to start wearing it again when he turned 60. Apparently yesterday morning he felt 60, so he popped it in…but then just as quickly took it back out. He didn’t think it looked right.
Personally, I’ve always thought an earring on a man in a suit looks a bit out of place. If a guy is going to wear an earring, it seems like his entire wardrobe should be a bit more casual. So, if Craig were to start wearing his earring again, I would think his on-screen clothing would need to be reevaluated.
But that’s just me.
What do you think? Vote in my online poll below, and I’ll share the results with Craig’s producers, who I’m sure will react accordingly.
