It's not over till it's ooooo-vah

You know what Lenny Kravitz said about things not really being over. Cheney says its over; the press doesn't think so at all. Which is why false endings are top of mind this morning. For example, the deliciously seasoned pork chops I ate last night have taken on a horrifying life of their own... They can't stop, won't stop, those pork chops... Arrrgh!Similarly, Dick Cheney may be suffering digestive issues, too. 'Cause the veep keeps saying fini about the Harry Whittington shooting incident, but the reality is that some shit just won't go away. You see, journalists with inquiring minds still want to know:

"Were they worried about Whittington's condition? Run What were the chain of events after the shooting? Dick What exactly happened that night?" Run Such unknowns have already sparked somewhat far-reaching speculation. While unproven and in some cases unlikely, lack of an official version allows such ideas to gain traction. Several journalists also point to the victim, Whittington, noting that he has not been interviewed by reporters or even released his account of the incident.
Reporters polled by Editor & Publisher still have a million questions, despite Cheney declaring this "case closed."

Ever have a favorite artist who just can't put out a new album fast enough? Then when finally something new is released, you cop it and feel high unwrapping the CD to give that long-awaited music a listen?

One of the few artists who lift me with anticipation this way is Lewis Taylor, London's #1 neo-soul brother, whose latest work is titled Stoned. And as usual, the music is ooooo-vah! Lewis Taylor is next-generation Elton John with a stone-cold neo-soul edge. For me, Lewis is a funk-rock-soul combination of Prince, D'Angelo and Mary J. Blige (whom I'd love to hear him burn a duet with). Check out his NPR interview.

Last but definitely not least, it's getting down to the wire on one of my favorite TV shows, Project Runway. The up-and-coming designer on the far right -- Santino Rice -- is still standing to the astonishment of many viewers, and has got to be singing that Lenny Kravitz song out loud.

If you're into this hot mess of a fashionista drama-rama, too, click this photo: Project Runway's 3 semifinalists are talented Daniel Vosovic, tight-seamed Chloe Dao, and Santino Rice (aka Mr. I'm too creative for my pants)

Viqi,
Since Bravo has been running marathons of Project Runway, now I'm hooked. Two of the male designers they let go were really good. I can't remember their names (old-timer's disease).

Dick Cheney... He thinks everyone's gonna just wake up the next day and act like he didn't almost kill somebody? Above the law doesn't begin to describe this crap.

PS, I haven't watched Project Runway yet, but my cousin is obsessed with it. Maybe I'll see what's wid it next week.

Brandon,
Great show, isn't it? I always knew that Chloe would still be in the competition down to the wire, but Daniel Vosovic didn't grab my attention until he created that amazing orchid blouse.

I bet that Santino gets cut this week. Somehow, he became this show's "Omarosa," the contestant everyone loves to hate.
