...and I LIKED it!

I am personally acquainted with Jamie Costello, the great anchor/reporter here at Baltimore's WMAR ABC-2 News.  I am proud to call him a friend, and I watch him do the news whenever I'm available to do so.

The other night, he got me to thinking, as he is wont to do.  (He does the news in a much more personal, and therefore enjoyable, style than the Ted Baxter style I see so much of around town.)  He passed along the stunning news that once again, that ol' love bug had hit Hef hard.

Get 'em to the church on time
Yes, folks, octogenarian play"boy" Hugh Hefner and twentygenarian Crystal Harris are planning to be married, and you have to figure her parents are oh so proud.  No word from his.

But Jamie made the point that their iPods might not be so compatible, pointing out that "his has Perry Como on it, and hers has Katy Perry!"

Mine has both!

She just married that Russell Brand guy
I really like Como's way, the way he sang ballads, novelty numbers and Christmas tunes.  And, yes, just ahead of Ke$ha in my hot hits slot in the 'Pod is where you will find Ms Perry doing "Hot N' Cold," "California Gurls" and "I Kissed a Girl."
And just when you wonder why an old-timer such as I can groove to tunes made by and for people a third of my age, I can switch right over to Perry's versions of "Papa Loves Mambo","Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive","'A' — You're Adorable","Hot Diggity (Dog Ziggity Boom)","Zing Zing —Zoom Zoom" and "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo (The Magic Song)."

Later on, as the mood mellows, I can switch to some of his novelty tunes.

If there's anyone else running around with this sort of eclectic taste, please get in touch. Maybe we could do a song called "Hot N' Cold Diggity Dog"!
