After reading this review, I watched this show and tuned in 3 minutes into the premiere. That's how close things were. It is an extremely unusual show. It'll air again next Sunday on AMC. Check for it. It's breathtaking, if you're the kind of person that likes unpredictable violent plot turns.
If you're walking into this show blind, prepare to be shocked.

I can't remember how I ended up on this particular page this morning, so in case this is a repost, bear with me. I was pleasantly surprised by the breadth of talent these 9 acts display. I didn't watch the sword swallower who starts off the article because he's from an older season, probably the first. The acts chosen, you got to watch!

I like watching video of acts that are deemed terrific instead of watching each show and enduring the not-so-terrific to get to the gold.
​Could one of our picks end up at the Royal Variety Performance?​​

Wandering around the YouTube music videos this morning. I came across a Nat King Cole compilation. I played it. I confess that he was an artist that I paid no attention to after I was 10 and Elvis Presley came on the Ed Sullivan show in 1956. And after that, it was rock n' roll that defined my tastes in music. Then came my retirement and I could branch out from music of the late 60's, 70's and 80's. Like rap, Hawaiian music (now my preferred music to listen to while driving), and other artists like Hank Williams and James Brown.

Nat King Cole's music is something that was somewhere in the bottom of my consciousness as I grew from an infant to 9 years old. I still remember black and white TV where he was a frequent singer on the various variety shows. But in those days, I didn't listen, I just went about my little kid ways. Who knew that the songs would imprint on my memory without me knowing? He sang white bread covers of songs that 50's America loved listening to. He had that delicious baritone that could add a melodious tone to singing the phone book! So I listened to my find and could not believe that I knew every one of the songs he sang, and that it took me back to my childhood! I think my kids had the same experience listening to the Beatles, the Doors, or Led Zeppelin.

The music you grow up with is not necessarily the stuff you sang or cared about, they were songs that crowded your ears and burned into your music storage without you being aware.

I usually pick my songs based on their meanings. Of course they have to sound good too :)

AFAIK, local folks I know have been going to Las Vegas on junkets since 1971, when I started in the first full-time job I ever had, and saw a notice on a bulletin board for one hosted by Jackie's Travel. Friends had been asking me to go to Vegas and I kept turning them down saying, "I'm not a gambler." Then again, I love to play poker. But, in 1991, a couple of friends convinced me to go with them. No wives, just us. We went every year with the same "no wives" rule until 2001, when I retired.

When people from Hawaii went to Vegas, they'd bring back omiyage (gifts) from certain shops that cater to us. In those days, it was mostly beef jerky because it was so expensive in the islands. Then, little by little, more items were bought home. For me, my wife used to bring me pistachios and cashews. For the kids, it was shortbread cookies with pictures of dice on them and gold coin shaped chocolate. Nowadays, the omiyage comes from Trader Joes.

My son returned from Vegas and got me a package of Lup Chong sausage he bought there. I told him, hmmm, I bought one a couple years ago from that omiyage shop in the Las Vegas Club hotel, that has since moved back to its original location in the Plaza Hotel. Yet the package's label says "In the lobby of the California Hotel."

Two years ago, when I bought the sausage, I thought though it was fatter and heavier than the Lup Chong I always keep on hand, it tasted the same. So I wasn't very impressed. Since then, a lot of my friends have raved over the taste of the sausage! I don't get it.

So I tasted the sausage again. Sure enough, it tasted the same. I thought, they're using the same recipe! Oh well, I have to appreciate what my son did. I normally don't get omiyage these days when I go to Vegas. I usually go at least once a year since the first time I went in 1991. But I often end up going 2X a year.

Certified fresh from my E-Mail in-box:

Many years ago during my married days, I accidentally overturned my golfcart.
Elizabeth, a very attractive and keen golfer, who lived in a villa on the golf course,
heard the noise and called out: "Are you okay, what's your name?"

"It's John, and I'm okay thanks," I replied as I pulled myself out of the
twisted cart.
"John, she said, (firm loose breasts undulating beneath her white silky
robe) "forget your troubles. Come to my villa, rest a while and I'll help
you get the cart up later."

"That's mighty nice of you," I answered, "but I don't think my wife would like it."

"Oh, come on now " Elizabeth insisted.

She was so very pretty, very very sexy and very persuasive ... I was weak.

"Well okay," I finally agreed but thought to myself, "my wife won't like it."

After a couple of restorative Scotch and waters, I thanked Elizabeth.

"I feel a lot better now, but I know my wife is going to be really upset.

So I'd best go now."

"Don't be silly!" Elizabeth said with a smile, letting her robe fall open slightly.

"She won't know anything. By the way, where is she?"

"Still under the cart, I guess" I said.

over the past few weeks, I've noticed the same thing. The show is a winner among a crop of fantastic late night shows!
When did Seth Meyers become so good? No, really. It happened so insidiously, like the temperature of a bathtub creeping to cool or Jonah Hill being considered a serious actor.

most pilots do a walk around of the aircraft before taking off, as a routine precaution. I guess it was a Cheshire cat and was invisible during the walkaround. I'm surprised it wasn't so scared it pooped.

Good-bye Grandpa
  
A father put his 3-year-old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened to her prayers which ended by saying, "God bless Mommy, God bless Daddy, God bless Grandma, and good-bye Grandpa."
  
The father asked, "Why did you say good-bye Grandpa?"
  
The little girl said, "I don't know daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do."
  
The next day grandpa died.  The father thought it was a strange coincidence.
  
A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers which went like this, "God bless Mommy, God Bless Daddy and good-bye Grandma."
  
The next day the grandmother died.
  
"Holy crap" thought the father, "this kid is in contact with the other side."
  
Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed, the dad heard her say, "God bless Mommy and good-bye Daddy."
  
He practically went into shock.  He couldn't sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office.
  
He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch and watched the clock. He figured if he could get by until midnight he would be okay.  He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound.  Finally midnight arrived; he breathed a sigh of relief and went home.
  
When he got home his wife said, "I've never seen you work so late.  What's the matter?"
  
He said, "I don't want to talk about it, I've just spent the worst day of my life."
  
She said, "You think you had a bad day, you'll never believe what happened to me.  This morning my golf pro dropped dead in the middle of my lesson!"
