George Michael’s song “Fantasy” was released as a b-side in 1990 and later as a bonus track on the 2011 deluxe version of the “Faith” album. But it was originally supposed to be on the “Listen Without Prejudice” album and George felt that it never got it’s due. So before his death last year, when he was looking for the lead single of the reissue of the Listen Without Prejudice album, he called his good friend Nile Rogers and asked him to rework, Fantasy… so Nile reproduced the track with some of the alternate vocal takes and provided the funky guitar rhythms and this new version will be the featured track on the deluxe version of Listen Without Prejudice Vol 1 / MTV Unplugged, which is set for release on 20 October. I love it (of course) but hearing his voice still makes me sad.

Who else had a Palm Pilot in the 90’s? I had two of them and I think I still have them both in a box somewhere. I loved my LifeDrive! You fellow Palm lovers might be interested to hear that there is a new Palm device coming out next year. Chances are it’ll be a little different than the old models and run on Android because Palm’s OS was sold to LG. And there’s no word if it’s still going to be a pocket computer, or updated to a phone, or what… so we’ll have to just wait and see how a new Palm device stands out in a world of pretty awesome smartphones. And I’m not updating my Samsung Galaxy S7 until I find out…

The devastation is so great, recovery from Hurricane Harvey could take years. Here is a list of some of the ways you can help.


Stephen King has seen it twice and says he thinks his fans are going to really like the new IT movie.

The latest beauty trend to hit instagram is squiggle brows… would you rock this look? For myself, I’m gonna say no… except maybe for Halloween.

And speaking of babies… another royal tot is on the way. Kate Middleton is pregnant! And like she did with the last two, she’s suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum (severe nausea and vomiting) so she will be bowing out of some social appearances. Poor Kate… that’s a rough way to grow a baby. I hope it lessens with each pregnancy. 🙁


I hope your Tuesday is awesome!!  Jennifer
