About Me

Split personality. Liking the arts, especially opera, and hockey and Los Toros. I know, I know THAT one is non pc currently. But I can't help it saw some in Spain and got hooked, but good. But on the other hand right now opera and hockey are in the forefront!

Well, let's face it some stuff is just that -
GOSSIP gleaned from various sources:
1. Italian Tenor Salvatore Licitra (below as Cavaradossi in Tosca)
was seriously injured in a road accident in Italy. he was riding his Vespa without a helmet and is in hospital with serious Head and chest injuries. His female Chinese companion was not injured much-she was wearing a helmet. Licitra was to be awarded the Premio Ragusani nel Mondo on September 3, 2011.
2. Blind Tenor Andrea Bocelli and his current partner Veronica Berti await the birth of the Tenor's third child. Bocelli, born 22 September 1958 in Pisa, met his future wife Enrica, with whom he had two children, while singing at piano bars early in his career. They were married on 27 June 1992. Their first child, Amos, was born in February 1995. Their second son, Matteo was born in October 1997. The couple divorced in 2002. Below Bocelli and Berti recorded together.

3. If you really believe that classical Music is just boring, just listen it's different, clever and can be  fun, too.

1. Mike Modano to retire?
Starting new career in broadcasting with the Dallas Stars?
Modano, 41, born in Livonia, Michigan, spent last season with the Detroit Red Wings after playing his entire career with the Minnesota North Stars/Dallas Stars franchise.
He plans to decide by mid - September.
After spending all his life in hockey since just a kid it will be hard to let go, but Modano feels he could be instrumental in getting the Stars fan base back up and excited again"

2. Players say: guys like John Scott are really appreciated by players more so than by fans. Scott and, for instance Carcillo, Clutterbuck, or at the AHL level Kassian,

  Morency (to name a few Aeros/Wild) keep other teams' nonsense (runs at your star players) to a minimum.

Remember this ?
And so what does Lady Gaga do this year at the Vmas?
Despite her HUGE success  she is not immune to be parodied.
