Dancing with the... "Stars"

Why hasn't anyone ever pointed out that the title of this show is a complete fraud? Paul McCartney= Star. Paul McCartney's ex-wife= Star's ex-wife. I mean, Hey, I am a distant cousin of the American composer Aaron Copeland but I am not about to try and star on the show "Dancing with the Composers" am I? AM I??? I think not. (However, that artificial Leg dancing is pretty awesome, as a matter of fact, THAT premise could make for a much BETTER show.)

So, I'll give you Jerry Springer from last season. I MIGHT even give you Emit Smith although I defy someone to please tell me a movie, show, church musical where Emit has been a "star"?

Alas, the show is entertaining. Sure beats Wife-Swap and I think the judges are pretty cool. The one man that keeps me coming back to this show is my best friend Joey's role model: Billy Ray Cyrus. Billy Ray Cyrus is one of those characters that you cannot miss. Whether he is cutting a rug, parting his mullet or answering EVERY SINGLE QUESTION with a reference to Achy Breaky Heart. (He seems like a pretty nice chap. I see why Joey has a pair of Billy Ray's high-top sneakers from this video autographed and on his mantle.)

I just got to spend 10 minutes convincing my four year old that this was not good music.

Thanks.

Oh come. on. Emmit is a star and you know it. The show is not called "Dancing with the Actors" or "Dancing with the Musicians."

Now I'll give you the cripple. She's not a star. She doesn't really belong there. But it's T.V. C'mon.

You know that when you sat down and watched this show with me that you liked it. You're just upset that you liked it because it means I have a valid reason for asking you to take ballroom dancing lessons with me.

Baby, I'll take ballroom with you anyday. Even after seeing the Blades of whatever tonight.

And for the record, other than ballet, I have nothing against dancing as an art or entertainment. I'm just not a fan of the bulge.

I just did some work on Billy Ray's new album a couple weeks ago. Since it's for Disney, he's singing songs like "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "You've Got a Friend". I haven't heard yet if there will be more songs about his mullet...

Lord have mercy on me! My liking of Billy is as deep as my love for a MacDonalds quarter-pounder with cheese battered and fried at Kentucky Fried Chicken and soaked in Vienna sausage juice. Washed down with a nice warm flat budweiser mixed with coagulated vulture blood!

Joey,

Do you still have that book about Billy Ray's flower gardens?

Stephen, Thats great! Like I said, I think the guy is fun. That mullet song cracks me up. Was he pretty decent?

Since we were just recording strings, he didn't come to the session. It would have been cool to meet him, though.
