Child's Play, Dolly Parton

Hey Dolly, What About The Children?!
At a press conference before media reps and their children as special guests, world renowned entertainer Dolly Parton announced the release of I Believe In You, her first album written and recorded for kids and those young at heart. A digital release of the new album on Dolly Records/RCA Nashville will be available September 29, whereas the physical album will street worldwide on October 13. All 14 tracks on I Believe In You were written and performed by Dolly Parton.

“My first album was released 50 years ago and it's been an amazing 50 years since then. I am very excited that now I'm coming out with my first children's album in all of those 50 years. I'm proudest of all that all of the proceeds from this CD will go to the Imagination Library,” Dolly said. “It's been 20 years since the Imagination Library was launched. We've seen 100 million books get into the hands of children and hopefully there will be many more.”

Since its beginning in 1996 in Dolly’s hometown of Sevierville, Tennessee, the Imagination Library has expanded into four countries serving more than one-million children by providing a brand new, age-appropriate book each month. In North America, every child’s first book is the classic Little Engine that Could.

With children seated around her in front of the fireside living room set that was built for the Smoky Mountains Rise Telethon last December, Dolly Parton revealed her I Believe In You album cover (above) and track listing (below).

I Believe In You Track Listing

  1. I Believe in You
  2. Coat of Many Colors (new recording)
  3. Together Forever
  4. I Am a Rainbow
  5. I’m Here
  6. A Friend Like You
  7. Imagination
  8. You Can Do It
  9. Responsibility
  10. You Gotta Be
  11. Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny
  12. Chemo Hero
  13. Brave Little Soldier
  14. Bonus track spoken audio: Coat of Many Colors (book read by Dolly Parton)
Tracks 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 were produced by Tom McBryde and executive produced by Paul T. Couch. Tracks 2, 11, 12, and 13 were produced by Tom Rutledge and Richard Dennison and executive produced by Dolly Parton.

Before and after reading her “Coat Of Many Colors” book, she treated the kids and media to a performance of three songs featured on the new album, “I Believe in You,” “Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny” and “Brave Little Soldier.” The press conference ended with Dolly answering questions and taking family photos with all the guests.

Founded in 1995, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting organization that has, to date, mailed more than 100 million books to children in Australia, Belize, Canada, United Kingdom and the United States. Each month, the program currently mails more than one million specially selected, high-quality, age-appropriate books to registered children from birth until they start Kindergarten in participating communities. Dolly envisioned creating a lifelong love of reading in children, preparing them for school and inspiring them to dream. Recent studies suggest participation in the Imagination Library is positively and significantly associated with higher measures of early language and math development. Penguin Random House is the exclusive publisher for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny...

Sharon Stone

She wore an itsy bitsy teeny weeny blue string bikini...That's right, it's Sharon Stone rocking said swimwear and guess what? She's 58!

I am posting this because as someone over 50 (51 to be exact) and wanting to shed some weight, appearance & health have been on my mind a lot of late. 

While I realize I am not a woman, let's face it society holds women to more stringent ideals than men. Thus I am posting this image of Stone.

The reality is not everyone looks this fantastic, or will, but we should all aspire to do better for ourselves in all areas of our lives. 

Sharon is a shining example of someone who has been through the ringer and still came out on top (she had a stroke people, remember)

Sunday Schwing! Javier Bardem

Javier Bardem
With all the buzz surrounding Darren Aronofsky's Mother! opening September 15th (I personally can't wait to see it!) My thoughts turned to one of the films stars Javier Bardem.

Bardem first came to my attention in the film Before Night Falls giving a brilliant Oscar winning performance as poet/novelist Reinaldo Arenas. But it was not just his talent that held my interest on screen it was also, well, do I have to spell it out for you? Javier Bardem is one hot man! There I said it, happy now?!

Of course being the randy guy I am, that got my wondering if there was any skin images of him over on Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things. Butt (typo/pun intended) of course there is!

Much to my surprise and Schwing there is a straight on Full Monty shot of Bardem along with the many other spicy images. 

Yep, this is what Sundays are all about a Schwing and a nice Cabernet...Enjoy!

Forever Loving You

A Tribute To Glen Campbell...

In recent years, groundbreaking country music icon Tanya Tucker has been quietly writing and recording new music while coping with a wave of emotions surrounding Glen Campbell’s battle with Alzheimer's disease. While their relationship and breakup made headlines years ago, Tucker channeled her heartfelt feelings for Campbell in a new song titled “Forever Loving You.” A portion of the proceeds from “Forever Loving You” will benefit Alzheimer's Foundation of America, a non-profit organization which provides programs and services for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers, as well as funds research towards a cure for Alzheimer’s. 

Tanya Tucker statement on passing of Glen Campbell:

“I’m just devastated. Absolutely devastated. It’s been so hard these past several years knowing what he’s been going through. My heart just breaks. Glen and I shared some incredible, precious memories together for a long time. There were some ups and downs and, of course, all the downs were played out in the press. We both got past all that. Forgiveness is a wonderful thing. It’s why I’m releasing “Forever Loving You” in memory of Glen and for all of those who are losing or have lost someone they love. I’ll forever love you, Glen.”

Tucker co-wrote “Forever Loving You” with Michael Lynn Rogers and Rusty Crowe, a Tennessee State Senator who co-sponsored the Campbell/Falk Act. The Tennessee law protects communication rights for people who've become wards of the state and those who have conservators over their financial and living situations.

Queen Of The Billboards, Angelyne

She's Baaaaaack!
Angelyne's Current Billboard

Angelyne, the Hollywood Billboard Queen has been famous for years for doing, well nothing. Long before it was a thing. She was known far and wide for her image on numerous billboards throughout the Hollywood area. Making her Hollywood's unofficial mascot, if you will.

She is also know for driving around the city in a hot pink corvette and everyone in town laying bragging rights to an Angelyne sighting. I remember the first time I spotted her after I arriving in the City of Angels it was like I had seen a unicorn.

Little Pink Corvette
Well after laying low for years and merely jetting around town in her signature pink corvette the Queen is back with a new billboard in Hollywood at the corner of Cahuenga & Yucca. She also has a new single out with the name "Heart" thrown in for good measure.

Hollywood's unofficial mascot has returned and honestly? It's great to have her back, especially in an era of celebrity that she was the forerunner of.

R.I.P. Rhinestone Cowboy

I remember what a big song Rhinestone Cowboy was when it was released in 1975...I was one year off from being a teenager, yep, I was twelve. This song has had an enduring impact on me throughout my life...Here is a press release from Webster PR that I received of fellow artist & friends reminiscing about their former client. Glen Campbell will always be THE Rhinestone Cowboy to me.

"Well Glen Campbell was special because he was so gifted. Glen is one of the greatest voices that ever was in the business, and he was one of the greatest musicians. He was a wonderful session musician as well. A lot of people don’t realize that, but he could play anything. And he could play it really well. So he was just extremely talented. I will always love you, Glen!" – Dolly Parton

“Glen Campbell is such an incredible talent. Glen Campbell filled a niche in American music that very few people have ever reached. He was considered both pop and country, and not just one record or one little phase in his career, but years and years and years of his career. He represented the best of the pop and the best of country, and he went that kind of middle ground. He pulled people in from both sides. It was a great thing for country music, and frankly, for pop music. He was an incredibly talented guitar player. A lot of people have heard Glen Campbell’s brand that don’t even realize it. He was a studio musician in Los Angles for a lot of years and he did a lot of work for a lot of artist we’re very familiar with. He had a great, God-given talent. We’ve seen him host television shows, he plays great guitar, he sings great and he entertains. Glen Campbell was one of the most unique people that has come along in the music business in my lifetime.” – Charlie Daniels

"It's always tragic when you hear of a friend passing, but he had to be miserable that last few years of his life. At least he doesn't have to deal with that anymore. We worked together a lot through the years. In fact, Glen played on almost all First Edition music. He played a dynamic riff on the guitar that was trend setting. I also shot a few of his album covers back in the day and, at the time, I never knew people were paid to do that, but a few weeks later I received a check in the mail that was unexpected and highly received. I'll never forget that. He was a good friend and it breaks my heart that he's not here to contribute to music anymore." – Kenny Rogers

“When I first came to Nashville, Tennessee to join the Oak Ridge Boys in 1973, I wasn’t with the group two weeks before Duane Allen took me to the CMA Awards, my first ever. I rented a tuxedo that looked like a high school prom tuxedo—horrible. That was the best I could do at the time. Glen Campbell came out and sang ‘By the Time I Get To Phoenix,’ and sat on the edge of the stage and sang it. I loved Glen Campbell. I had all of his records up to that point. I could not believe that I was sitting in the Opry House, actually watching Glen Campbell sing. Over the years, we became very good friends.” – Joe Bonsall (The Oak Ridge Boys) 

“I think probably, the sweetest time I had with Glen Campbell is when I would be with him, pitching songs to each other. Glen Campbell was one of the great song men I’ve ever met in my life. Glen taught me so much about the importance of finding great songs. When we worked together, which was many times, like in Branson, when we opened up the Palace Theatre. We opened it up together. We would wind up on our bus, playing songs until one night we played so long that he just fell asleep. He just didn’t want to give it up, and he would wake up at the end of the song and say ‘Play another one.’ I’d say, ‘don’t you think we need to go to sleep?’ He’d say ‘Yeah, but I’d just love to hear these new songs.’ We would just keep playing song. One time we were out in the Sparks, Nevada working with Mel Tillis and he said ‘Glen called and he wants us to come over to Tahoe and play some songs.’ So we got in Mel’s plane and flew to Tahoe, and we played songs at Glen’s place, just played songs for each other for about two hours until we were horse. Then we flew back to Sparks, did our shows and Glen did his at Lake Tahoe. Short time ago I went to visit Glen at the home where he was staying and handed him a guitar. He picked it up and strummed it a little bit, gave me a big smile, and it was hard to see a man who looked really healthy, looked really good, still smiled real big, but not be able to communicate like he once did. But I have so many memories of him. And I pray that someday, we’ll find a cure or treatment for Alzheimer’s and those people who need help and that’s my one prayer." – Duane Allen (The Oak Ridge Boys) 

"Glen Campbell was such a huge influence on me. Growing up, I studied his writing, songs and how he was an 'entertainer's entertainer.' Along with Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner, Glen Campbell was one of the first to parlay country music into mainstream television and broaden the entire country music fan base across the globe. Ride on Rhinestone Cowboy. God Bless." – Billy Ray Cyrus

“As a musician, he was a hero. As an Arkansan, he was a hero. RIP Glen.” – Justin Moore

"Sorry to hear about my good friend Glen. The loss is too big to put into words. He was an incredible voice, incredible musician, incredible friend, movie star and recording artist. We had so much fun together, and sort of grew up together in our music and our careers. There were so many memories that only he and I shared. Glen and I were brothers in every sense of the word. When I hear or see his name, I see the Glen I've always known. There will never, ever be another Glen Campbell." – Roy Clark

"I knew Glen for more than 50 years. We met on the set of a TV show in Toronto in 1964, and like everybody else in our business, I was a huge fan. One of my treasured memories is the day Glen and I sat together, just the two of us and his guitar, and recorded a "Bill Anderson Visits with the Legends" radio show for XM satellite radio. We laughed, sang and visited like two neighbors across a picket fence. I'll remember it forever." – Bill Anderson

“It’s sad to hear of the passing of yet another great musical genius. His music will live on! Some of the greatest country songs ever to be written or sung. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Campbell family in their time of sorrow and loss.” – KC of KC and the Sunshine Band

"I had the pleasure of inducting Glen into the Country Music Hall of Fame. He could write it, sing it and play it. He was a triple threat. He never forgot his friends and made room for them on any project could. He was one of the finest musicians I've ever known and certainly the prowess of his entertainment legacy goes without saying that. He was our golden boy. We loved him and the world loved him." – Brenda Lee

“I don’t think there is any doubt that under the circumstances of his health the past several years, his passing was inevitable. But that doesn’t take away from it and the fact that he was one of the greatest in the business. Vocally and instrumentally there was no one like him and the music business is a better place because of him. I will always cherish the fact that he played on many of my recordings in the 60s. I was proud to know him and to work with him. We sure will miss him.” – Leroy Van Dyke

“I grew up loving Glen Campbell and am so sad to see him go. The greatest all around talent ever in country music.” – John Rich of Big and Rich

“I'm sad to learn of the passing of one of my heroes and friends, Glen Campbell. I loved his singing and guitar playing but I really admired him for his down to earth and friendly personality. I spent only a week working with him in Branson and he made us all feel like old friends. Rest In Peace old buddy." – Mark Chesnutt

“I did my grieving for Glen when I first heard he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s because I knew we had lost the gift of his talent and his friendship. I’m glad he is not suffering any longer and I hope he is now at peace.” – Jeannie Seely

“Glen Campbell touched so many lives during his time on this earth! He sang one of my all time favorite songs, Rhinestone Cowboy. He was such a talented singer, songwriter and actor. Today country music has lost yet another great and legend. May God watch over his family and fans through these tough times ahead. Rest in peace the one and only Glen Campbell!” – Shane Owens

“We lost another one of my heroes. One of the greatest singers, songwriters and musicians. He had it all. We are going to miss him dearly.” – Moe Bandy

“I was, am and always will be a Glen Campbell fan.” – Ronnie McDowell

“My hero... My Friend... Glen Campbell, is gone. My heart is heavy... A lot of memories...the end to a beautiful era in music. His incredible legacy is what we have now. Thank you, my friend, for always treating me as an equal, though clearly I am not. May God comfort your sweet family, and welcome you into His presence. The Heavenly Band, just got way better. I love you, Glen. Happy Trails." – Collin Raye

“Glen Campbell inspired millions with his TV show, including me. ‘Gentle on My Mind’ and ‘Wichita Lineman’ were in my repertoire before I ever started making records. He was also a fixture in Clovis, NM where Buddy Holly made his mark. Millions followed him and millions will miss him." – Gary Morris

“There's never been a better musician or a greater artist than Glen Campbell. I admired him and respected his talent.” – Lee Greenwood

“Glen Campbell brought a little more sophistication and class to country music. He not only entertained country fans, but his crossover success in the pop genre made him a true pioneer of his time. He had a huge hand in growing and expanding country music and that’s all any of us could hope to someday do.” –Frank Foster

“Even though Glen has been sick for a while, the news of his death is still very shocking to us. With all the live shows we did together, we just used to always stay around and watch his shows because of the songs and his beautiful voice. We will miss Glen dearly.” – David Bellamy of the Bellamy Brothers

"There are only so many artists that you can truly call icons. Glen Campbell was surely one of the brightest of those. His class, amazing vocal style, instrumental prowess and authenticity made him one of the best of all time. He will be deeply missed but his music will live on with us forever!" – Tim Rushlow

"Glen Campbell was a living legend. He was not only one of my favorite singer/musicians, but also helped create some of my favorite sounding music from other genres. He was part of The Beach Boys sound (the wrecking crew!) He created some of the main songs that still grace my playlist daily. His family will be in my prayers.” – Mark Wills

"Glen Campbell was a generational talent whose multiple gifts transcends genres while simultaneously defining them. His music also helped define my childhood. He's a big part of popular music history, and we're all lucky as hell for that...May he rest well... There will never be another like him." – Ray Scott

“What a great loss for Country Music and the world. Glen Campbell was one of the all-time greats as a singer, musician and entertainer, as well as a TV host and actor. He did it all and remained a down-home, salt of the earth man. He was a true gentleman who was always quick to say hello as if he was your neighbor. He was able to rise above all formats, as he hit the top of the charts in country and pop/rock virtually side by side. A remarkable feat by a most remarkable man.” – Gene Watson

"I'm so sad hearing the news of Glen's death today. As a kid, I was a big fan of ‘Glen Campbell's Goodtime Hour’ television show. ‘Wichita Lineman,’ and ‘By the Time I Get to Phoenix’ are two of my favorites and are absolute masterpieces. The depth of his talent and the ease with which he sang and played guitar was mesmerizing to watch! Flawless! You are loved Glen! My heart goes out to his family and friends." – Sylvia

“This is so sad. One of my proudest moments with Glen was when he borrowed my guitar for a TV Taping in Nashville.  He is a respected talent. He was a great artist…I recently recorded one of his hit songs ‘Try a Little Kindness so I take a little bit of Glen with me everywhere I go.”– Janie Fricke

“I loved him and I am happy he is in a better place. My memories with Glen go back to my early teens. My dad brought home a Glen Campbell album, and from that time on I loved Glen Campbell. I was a huge fan. I was always in awe of him and he was one of the most talented people I have ever known. When I joined Statler Brothers in the early 80s I got to be on the ‘Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour’ with Jerry Reed and I could not believe it. He was always so nice and I admired the man and his talent. I will get to pay a small tribute to Glen with the song of his ‘Southern Nights,’ which I did on my latest album. What a loss. His presence will forever be missed.” – Jimmy Fortune

"I did many shows with Brother Glen. He was always a sweetheart, gentleman and good friend. I will greatly miss him. God bless his family." – T. Graham Brown

Our Business takes a long time to recover from the loss of a giant star like Glen Campbell. I’m sure the night sky will for sure be brighter now that he has ascended home to our heavenly Father. His music inspired not only me, but many generations.” – T.G. Sheppard

"It's so sad to see another icon taken from us. He influenced so many musicians and artists. His music will live on forever." – Olivia Lane

“Glen Campbell is a hero to me because not only was he a phenomenal guitar player, but because he had that style and swagger about him. He was the bling man, come on! Rhinestone cowboy, live forever.” – Craig Wayne Boyd

“Rest In Peace one of our musical heroes, Glen Campbell – a true genius. What a musical legacy you left us!” – EXILE

All Eyes On Rihanna

Queen Of The Festival
While I am not a Rihanna fan I do have to give her credit for always managing to get people's attention. By what she does and doesn't wear. 

Thus my running the image of the costume she wore to the Crop Over Festival in Barbados.

Apparently her posting of it on her Instagram page cause quite a stir on the WWW as her abuser and former boyfriend Chris Brown commented with an eye emoji.

People went crazy commenting all sorts of things telling him to leave Rihanna aloooooone! 

OK, I am not a fan of what Chris Brown did, but I also don't spend time online trolling people.

Just Because...Bella Thorne

Puppy Love
Bella Thorne
Just Because I think she's pretty, just because her hair color in this photo caught my eye and just because she is holding a brand spanking new puppy to call her own, here is Bella Thorne.

While I was never really familiar with the starlet until the Freeform show Famous In Love, the show itself is not my thing, but I did binge watch because I find Thorne so interesting to watch. On, and off screen as well.

Yes, there is something about Bella. IMHO her full potential has yet be seen or tapped into. Whatever the fate of Famous In Love I'm sure Thorne will never want for work.

And there you have that!

Sunday Schwing! Big Brother

For those of you who have been watching the 19th season of Big Brother this one's for you! It's Mark and his big beefy booty courtesy of Tye Brigg's Favorite Hunks & Other Things.

I have never been really attentive to BB as it never fully engaged me. Butt (pun intended) this season has me watching. I know why too, these house guests are competitive as F#$k and are going hard before they go home.

Where in past seasons the peeps in the house seemed to simply be fame whoring themselves out, and were hard to root for. 

I agree with Tye's commentary on the men of Brother and did not know Mark had flashed skin until I spied the images on his site. I love a BB (Beefy Booty, not Big Brother) -

Time to Schwing!

E.G. is one of the best live performers I have ever seen. This will be an evening you won't want to miss as the Hotel Cafe is a very up close and personal kind of space. Yes I have been there and plan on being there the 17th. You should too!

Photobomb Drop

Where's The Hamm???
Jon Hamm, January Jones & Kiernan Shipka
I stumbled across a rerun of an episode of Mad Men the other day and realized how much I miss the show. Thus today's photobomb image is something of a flashback, well it is Flashback Friday after all.

One of the hottest men on three legs Jon Hamm is captured dropping the "P Bomb" on co-stars January Jones & Kiernan Shipka.

I make no bones about my thing for Hamm on here (get it? Bones?) He has movie star looks and a nice slice of you know what to go along with it. If you are confused as to how I know that clearly you haven't seen the magnificent pics of him freeballing. I wished that would have been a part of this bomb drop...sigh.

Michael's Musings

I'm Smiling Like I Have A Naughty Secret
Michael Shinafelt
"I swear I won't tease you, Won't tell you no lies. I don't need no bible, Just look in my eyes" - I Want Your Sex, George Michael

Sex is something that is on everyone's minds all the time. In fact I am thinking about it right here, right now. It is also making me reminisce about the time I wrote a sex column called: Between The Sheets. 

OK, now we can't get that crazy on here, but I thought it would be devilish to go edgy this week and play with some boundaries. Thus in this column everything will relate to sex on some level, as there are many, trust.

Let's start off with a fan favorite quote from my old column and move on from there...the safe word is "Go" 

"Smile Like you have a naughty secret" - Michael Shinafelt, Between The Sheets

Don't want no short dick man. R U listening Trump???

"I'm thrilled to be playing Dublin for the very first time! The country is known for two of my former favorites - Guinness and foreskin. I can't have the former because I no longer drink and I can't have the latter because I'm spoken for - but I'm still excited to visit!" - Margaret Cho

Never look down on someone unless your getting head

"Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another" - Madonna, Justify My Love

Show your body and be sexy, because you have respect for your whole self

One of the best things  someone ever said to me is: You're really provocative 

Who the hell thinks the government should have any right to tell women how to run their bodies???

Ice cubes. Think about it, but not too much

The human race was meant to evolve, Transgender people are evolution 

Boss Daddy. Any Questions?
