Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Well, there was Rob Lowe singing "Proud Mary" with Snow White back in, I believe, '89 . . .
Is that the same one where Merv Griffin came out singing I've Got a Loverly Bunch of Coconuts? I thought that was an acid flashback.

The thing was a running, jumping, standing joke in Holywood for years after. I know my jaw dropped when I saw it, because not only was it . . . what it was . . . but this was not too long after Lowe had got in hot water for videotaping himself in flagrante delicto with two beasts (one of them of the jailbait variety) in a hotel room during the '88 Democratic National Convention.The Academy Awards are really going out on a limb this year, I thought.
My thinking was, musically anyway, we've gone from Elliott Smith and Elvis Costello and Alison Krauss....to Counting Crows and Andrew Lloyd Webber.Devolution in full effect.
