I'm a pop culture junkie. My Evening News is hosted nightly by Mario Lopez. I promise not to keep you long, but to only bring you the "media sound bites," and "stream of consciousness" that flows through my mind. You see, with my ego completely aside, I truly believe that if you like what I like and do what I do then things will go swimmingly well in your life, which will be enriched and all-the-more wiser. So please, be "Just like Jerry." (CLICK-THRU-LINKS in colors)

Hump-Day, Haley, Property Virgins, & Karyn White
Idol's soulful Haley
Idol's Haley Reinhart signed with Interscope. I'm actually rooting for her. As someone who got some hard-knocks from the judges (a la Jen Hudson), I'm hoping she emerges as a huge star to show 'em all. Here's her "Rolling In The Deep," where she really flies on the 2nd verse.... Speaking of Adele, her album jumps to #1 for the 11th time with 2.7 mill sold - quite a success story in this day and age. Be prepped for a Grammy landslide (still 6 months away).... Nothing much more scathing than this Kelly Rowland album review in the LA Times with "bland material," being a pull-quote.... Maroon 5 was at the Bowl on Monday; Sugarland at the Greek. Gladys Knight & James Ingram at the Bowl tonight and Dolly there last weekend - and I attended zero. What am I thinking? Such regret.... I vow to tackle Spotify over the next week. It seems really damn cool.... Ever seen HGTV's "Property Virgins"? Host Sandra Rinomato's slight smugness of showing wanna-be home owners amazing digs to then be a dream-crusher because the cost is too high is just pure comedy. "You like this neighborhood? Well, you can't afford it!"... I give "Friends with Benefits" a B+. Cute film. Could you wait till DVD? Probably... Yes, shockingly, I use classic Dial gold bar soap.... Seeing a screening of "Cowboys & Aliens" tonight. Very excited.... Every Wednesday I'll offer a Hump Day Hidden Gem. Remember LA/Babyface act, Karyn White? Classic but forgotten R&B/Pop from the early 90's like Secret Rendezvous, Superwoman, The Way I Feel About You and - Romantic.... So, be Romantic - and be Just like Jerry.
