Eye Candy and Scissor Sisters

DH and I were out tonight and I missed most of 360. But I knew I had some goodies to share with everyone (no it isn't the doggie bag) so no guilt tonight. First, I had an email from the Emmy office today, about the broadcast of Monday night's News and Documentary Emmys. It will be shown on CSpan Saturday, September 30, 8:00-11:00 PM EST. Looks like we all have a date on Saturday night!
Next, a big thanks to Xtina,who shared pictures from last night's Emmys with ATA today.






Do I need to throw cold water on you? Pay attention, I'm not done.


After our dinner DH asked if I had any interest in stopping at Border's to do some shopping. I told him I really wanted to buy a CD that came out today so yes, Borders was fine by me. Now here is where you really get a glimpse, yet again, into our differing tastes. DH asks if it was the Waylon Jennings CD that I was interested in buying. WAYLON JENNINGS, does the man know me at all? I said no I wanted the new Scissor Sisters CD to which, of course, he replied "Who?"

I really never heard of the Scissor Sisters until 6 months ago when Anderson talked about them and was photographed with Jake Shears, the lead singer. Since then AC has been spotted at their NYC concert(Gawker) and put them on his Blender list of favorite albums. He said of them "They're my new favorite group. I've known the lead singer, Jake Shears, since before he was in the band, we met through mutual friends. He's got a great voice. I listened to the Scissor Sisters in Baghdad for sheer escapism. "

The group was on Conan Tuesday night, but if you missed the show Purple Tie tells me they are performing on "Dancing With the Stars" Wednesday night. The new CD is called Ta-Dah and it's fabulous. To hear some Scissor Sisters check out their MySpace page.

Did you see on the 360 webpage that they are looking for nominations of individuals to feature in an upcoming series? "This new series profiles individuals with great courage and strength and amazing spirit. They inspire us with how they live their lives, deal with setbacks and tackle their goals. Nominate people you know who respond to extraordinary events with extraordinary actions and then tune in to watch their stories on 360, beginning Friday, October 6. " I sent in my nomination, do you know someone who is deserving?

What's Happening at CNN pointed me toward an interesting blog entry by CNN's Richard Quest. He gives a little insight into the glamorous life of a CNN traveler.

Cold water! Oh man...I need more than cold water. How is it possible that he always looks so good! Those last two are so cute they make my stomach do flips. And Dr. Gupta is pretty easy to look at too! How am I going to be able to concentrate in class after this? Thanks so much for the pics!

Who is that "woman" standing next to Anderson in the SS picture? Was that his date? LOL The last time I saw a mouth like that it had a hook in it.

The person next to Anderson is the transsexual, Amanda LePore who is sort of a model/singer/performance artist in NY.

Just picked up Ta Dah and love it. They were great on Conan despite the fact Jake couldn't be his really flamboyant self on television. However, Jake is a cutie.
