Mr. Pop History – I had the pleasure to preview a new A&E show coming tomorrow. If you like Bob Saget on TV, or you’ve seen his live shows – you’ll love “Strange Days With Bob Saget.”
In each program, we see another facet of Saget – as he explores and reacts to such experiences as joining a motorcycle gang, hanging with those who hunt “Bigfoot” and more. It’s reality the Bob Saget way and he seems strangely at ease with all of it. Don’t miss the fun!
Mr. Pop History – Thanks to IMax – I took this from the week of January 22, 2000:
“Imax is set to open “CyberWorld” a compilation of eight ‘Simpsons’ cartoon segments and ‘Antz’ converted into three-dimensional computer-generated animation in October.”
Mr. Pop History – Those of us who do websites are aware of what’s coming. From html to xhtml and the new standard on the horizon – html5. All use tags – you just have to know the tag lexicon and when to use them. Those of us who know xhtml will find html5 a breeze because a lot of the tags are shorter.
Q: When was Boy George and his band, “Culture Club” at their peak?
Mr. Pop History – I’d say 1983 just after “Do You really Want to Hurt Me” from the album “Kissing to Be Clever.”
Boy George was made for MTV. His half-masculine half-feminine look got people talking and helped keep the hits coming into 1984.
Mr. Pop History – It was a big, big deal when Hannah Montana appeared on “American Idol.” Her first AI appearance was back in April 2008. She’d be back a year later – almost to the date. Here’s that announcement – from the first week of April, 2009:
More Miley… She’s coming to “American Idol.” The 16-year-old superstar, who is gearing up for the release of “Hannah Montana The Movie,” pre-taped a performance of her hit song, “The Climb,” for the hit FOX reality competition on Wednesday night. The performance will air on April 15.
