Il Divo: Boyband with operatic voices

Well, I was set on buying Michael Buble’s latest album It’s Time when I came across Il Divo – four polished men in suits, and a sticker on the cover that says: The World’s First Operatic Supergroup.

CSI: New York’s Danny Messer & Tanglewood Theory

I’m smitten. For some reason I suddenly realized that Danny Messer (played by Carmine Giovinazzo – that’s one difficult surname to spell) is cute. I know, lame. It began when I hung around the message board, Talk CSI when I was fantastically bored one day. (Apparently many would like to see Danny a)in the shower b) without his shirt.) Then ... Read More »
