Did anybody else just see Rev. Al dance like James Brown?

Or try to, anyway!

3. I saw him do it on Saturday Night Live.

He was actually a pretty good dancer then.

4. He was good

They were very good friends.

I loved the Revees yesterday and I agree that Obama was robbed in the musical category

5. Luvz me some Reverend Al

James Brown was more like a (god)father to Al than his own father was:

"When James found out that Al's father left the family when he was young, Al says James took it upon himself to act as his father figure. "Every two or three weeks he would send for me. You gotta remember, I'm a kid living in the projects, my mom's a domestic worker, and overnight I'm flying around James Brown's private jet and everybody from Mick Jagger to Michael Jackson is hanging out backstage asking me can they see Mr. Brown. So I automatically have stature now!"

7. Me too!

But he covered it nicely. He was so frenetic tonight, I think the Christmas cheer was flowing at the studio tonight!

9. Hi, Joanie Baloney!

I haven't talked to you in ages. (I'm Joannie Baloney, too. Remember me?) I hope things have been good for you.

So I definitely breathed a sigh of relief for Rev Al. Didn't want to see all his excitement crushed by a bad dance move.

It's good to see you!

10. Hey there, Z!!

I do remember you (I never forget good deli meat). Nice bumping into you too.

Things are okay - on unemployment so I am on pins and needles waiting for the derp-heads to get their act together. Other than that, all is wonderful! Hope all is groovy for you and yours as well!

pretty good at it, as I recall.
