OK, it's 9:45, I am watching the 9PM news and the city of Hopkins come on, a small town of 17,000 here in MN, a cool town, couple of good music bars and a fun main street...

They started a contest called "Hopkins Idol" to find a singer for fun...the lawyers from American Idol call and say they can't use the word idol associated with any sort of singing contest...

What about Billy Idol? He's been called that since the days of Generation X (moment of silence...ahhh...). Did he have a problem with the TV show using the word 'Idol'?

Once upon a time, Warner Brothers sent a cease and desist order to the Marx Brothers as their new film 'A Night In Casablanca' was using the same name as Warner Bros. recent "Casablanca" movie (Bogart, Bergman...."You know how to whistle don't ya?...").
Anyway, Groucho Marx sent them a reply where he insisted that since the Marx Brothers had been a Vaudeville act for years before Warner Brothers came on the scene that Warner Brothers cease and desist in their use of the word "Brothers"."

"We were 'Brothers' first!" said Groucho.

Oh, and everyone stop using the word "Tall"!!!
That's mine now. You've been warned.

****Chap, thats kinda funny about Billy and Groucho.

dB, that is the lamest thing I have ever heard. How did a big show like that even find out about a little town like Hopkins?

The last time I was in Houston I dang near got mugged by some wierd dude which I think was an ugly girl really.

My $0.02 - If you're looking for an idol, television is the last place to look.
