Speaking of Glenn Close…

Before I begin, a massive thanks to Skinner, on whose site this all took place. (I hope he’s proud.)

Skinner does an occassional series where he answers the often absurd questions posted on CNN’s front page. Here is today’s:

Well, I couldn’t top that, but I was drawn to the next point, “Glenn Close upset over Navy video.”
And it went from there.

Clearly, there had been some sort of misunderstanding on my part. I attempted to correct it.

I’m not sure that cleared it up at all. In fact, I think it made things worse.

For those of you who tried in vain to click on the video above, here it is: (Click on this one, guys.)

I may not have quite gotten it right again.

And that’s the way we ended it, but not before Skinner and I found some common ground. Here I present, for the first time outside of Skinner.fm, Glenn Close’s audition for The Horror of Party Beach.

“Let it Be”… gone. Gone far, far away. UPDATED!

If John Lennon were alive this would kill him.

A Norwegian program, Gylne Tider,  has put together a video of (mostly) American and Norwegian celebrities singing “Let it Be.”  I have no idea what the show is about, but that isn’t the issue. The issue is: Is David Faustino a star? Is Fab from Milli Vanilli still legally allowed to be called a star? Why is George Wendt singing? Why isn’t Peter Falk singing? And why isn’t William Shatner in it at all?  

These questions, and more, brought up but not answered:

Sadly, this may have been the last screen appearance of Leslie Neilsen, and that’s just cruel.

UPDATE!

David Faustino has gone on record to explain his part in the wonderful mess that is the Gylne Tider “Let it Be” video:

My first reaction was “well, NOW that video  is cool.” As a planned event it sucks, but as a celebrity prank it is hysterical.

My second reaction was “David Faustino called himself a celebrity. He either has a lot of nerve or he’s delusional.”
