49 cents


I see that 50 Cent is coming to the Big HLC. I won't be here to catch his performance & I'm really not burning to see him - particularly after visiting his "click on an image and get a gunshot sound effect" website. But there's no denying he's a hot, A-Lister.

I actually got to thinking about that after seeing his poster 'round about town: the big deal of someone like 50 Cent or Madonna or Sting swinging by Holy Land Central (HLC) for a gig. I wasn't here for it but I know there was a long, dry spell insofar as big name visitors go.

Just for the fun of it, I'd love to see someone like eddie izzard touch down for a run. The subtleties of his historical references and run amok stream of consciousness would go overhead, I imagine. But I really do miss the sort of color he serves up.

Speaking of, a generous kindred spirit handed over a gig last night which involved interviewing 2 of the world's leading cancer researchers, moving about among dignitaries, sitting 4 seats away from former Primer Minister Ehud Barak and enjoying the strains of Yo Yo Ma finessing his cello. That type of cover I can certainly handle.

I recently blogged about spending time with bombing victims at the hospital. It was for this article, gloat gloat.

Cheers, beers and that's my 50 drachma.
