More odds & ends (mixed-greens edition):

Charity or no, it should still be titled The Most Boring Album in the World... Ever! [In the interest of full disclosure, I myself own the album many would have previously given this title to, Diana, Princess of Wales: Tribute. But you know what? It's actually a fairly solid collection of some classy, mostly downbeat songs, and includes Bryan Ferry putting Shakespeare's "Sonnet No. 18" to music, which is gorgeous. As an added bonus, it does not include Elton's "Dead Princess, I Love You" (a/k/a "Candle in the Wind '97"). Plus, it was a Christmas gift from Mom, and I never, ever get rid of her Christmas gifts; it'd just feel wrong, y'know?]

The Calling + potentially getting tied up in court a while = a little less shitty radio-ready music. If you want to call it music.

The Big East just got bigger, adding 5 schools today. That means they're the top dogs in college hoops, Andy Katz says, and really - how can you disagree? Not with UConn, 'Cuse, Cincy, Marquette, Pitt, and L'ville in the mix, you can't. Hope you enjoy your football, ACC. And the fallout ain't over: C-USA (newly raped and pillaged by the Big East) is next.

I caught an episode of Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee this weekend, and it was - well, it was bizarre. If you've ever in your life watched a cooking show, the notion of watching someone use - and praise! - bottled tartar sauce or canned cling peaches (as part of a "Sexy Soirée" no less!) is just downright weird. But you know what? It's pretty cool, too. Lee is so gonna be the next Martha, like it or not, so you might as well get used to her.

I've been remiss in not mentioning the continued excellence over at Marcello's new pad, The Naked Maja. Worthy of extra-particular note is his look last week at the 100 Greatest Guilty Pleasure singles. This week, amonst other topics, he takes on Take That (and regular readers shouldn't be surprised by what Mr. Carlin has to say).

And, since I feel a cold attempting to start coming on, it's time for my favorite go-away-colds preventative. Yum!
