When Luther (yes, we were on a first name basis) died that was James Ingram and Jeffrey Osbourne's big chance to jump back into the limelight. Where are they? Nowhere, that's where. And, there is no one current even close to their talent. I will bet you a million dollars you wouldn't have ever heard Luther sing "Call me Mr. Flintstone, I can make your bed rock."
Honestly, with James and Jeffrey (yes, first name basis with them too) still acting like punks and being no-shows, I would take a Keith Sweat or a Johnny Gill or Boys 2 Men. Don't these people know how to strike while the iron's hot? We have lots of rap and hip hop, but no R & B. Here's your chance!
Below is a video of Luther singing Searching live. THIS is how you sing a song and add some sparkle. You don't see big Luther (not to be confused with skinny Luther) trying to liven things up by dressing like a giant Liberace feathered muppet (yes, I am talking to your foolish, lyric forgetting behind Cee Lo).
On the Country Western front, word is out that Glen Campbell is retiring. I know, *gasp*!!! Glen, our original rhinestone cowboy, is going to release one more record and do a farewell tour this summer. It is reported that this new album tested well with college students and will not be "your mother's Glen Campbell." You might wanna get your tickets now.

Oh yeah, we have some Not Art news too. Some joker has purchased an Andy Warhol self-portrait for $17 million. Double the price it was expected to get. Some people will pay any amount of money to seem like they are cultured. Not us. We are cultured for free.
I look forward to sharing my parenting tips with you tomorrow and to finding a way to fit in telling you about the lady who had scissors in her stomach that poked through to the outside.
