T & M: We’re excited for 1000 posts. Every milestone counts. And we’re proud of this one. We hope all of our features engage you. And we really hope our in-depth analysis gets through to you. We’re not your normal Tumblr’s. But we hope we’re unique enough that we can entertain and inform. T gives M the biggest props ever. And I can’t believe,...
Norah Jones Has a Little Broken Heart →
mishthi: The amazing Norah Jones has just released one of the most seductive albums of 2012, moving away from her Come Away With Me sound and slipping into something a bit more sexier. and you can listen to the album in entirety, thanks to KCRW. M: Thanks for the tip, MISHTHI
What to Watch, 4-18-12
T: Somewhat busy night, if you dig certain shows. The main news is that ABC is almost all new. Let’s get to it. The best programmed night on TV is all new save for The Middle (which is worth watching even when repeating (M: unwatchable for me - pass)). Suburgatory was easily the best new sitcom (more on its possible successor in a sec) on TV this season and I’m really hoping it...
Betty White on (ick) Piers Morgan--awesome
T: Betty White was on Piers Morgan tonight and was as freaking delightful as ever. I liked this exchange a lot. Read on. Piers Morgan: When you look back at your 90 years, if I could replay a moment for you, outside of marriages and everything like that, a moment in your life that you would say was the greatest moment of your life, what would you choose? Betty White: The hour and a half I...
harusaki-sentimental asked: thanks for following me :)
My email to M re: The Voice
T: The following is a very short email sent from a non-The Voice viewer to a The Voice viewer…after being horrified by clips on Hoda and Kathie Lee (judge not). So, Hoda and Kathie Lee recapped. Just watching. Um, Christina is out of fucking control. They showed she and Blake performing with their people. Blake’s group was highlighted. Christina…however…she sure made...

The Bachelor Race Lawsuit--Ridiculous
T: So, tomorrow, as the press release says (warning right there), there will be a lawsuit filed taking on The Bachelor on ABC for not having had a, as they put it, person of color in 10 years and 23 seasons. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/abc-bachelor-racial-discrimination-lawsuit-nathaniel-claybrooks-christopher-johnson-312936 First, I think it’s ridiculous they haven’t...
kcrw asked: Hey... Just wanted to drop in & say thanks for being an avid fan of KCRW! Just found your blog today! Love you! <3 Betsy!
Fifty Shades of Grey - First Impressions
M: OK - I’m reading it. I’m probably going to read the whole thing. But sometimes, it’s embarrassing to read it. NOT because of the S&M thing - that’s quite titillating (huh huh - she said titillating). It’s really poorly written. I haven’t read a bodice-ripper in a long time, but I forgot how silly the situations and dialogue can be. I guess this...
Andrew Bird Live on KCRW Right Now! →
M: Check him out. I hope I don’t offend anyone when I say he’s a more whimsical Rufus Wainwright. He’s an extremely talented dude who plays multiple instruments and I want to follow him whereever he goes when he whistles. T: And since when did we care about offending anyone?! I’ll check this dude out.
The Blues Are Making a Comeback!
Gary Clarke, Jr., Alabama Shakes, Black Keys. I’m going to have to start sipping bourbon. M
T: This song makes me want to: Scream Rock TJ!!!...
Congrats to Garry Marshall (our neighbor)
T: Garry Marshall was inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame. I can’t think of a more worthy inductee. Aside from his awesome film resume (Pretty Woman, Beaches, Runaway Bride and one of my guilty pleasures, Overboard), he is most definitely a TV legend. The Odd Couple. Laverne and Shirley. Happy Days. Angie. Mork and Mindy. Prolific. Awesome dude. Top that off with...
