The context? Are we talking karaoke? Then I say Alone; I love a good belting ballad.

A contest. Portland Idol. I get two songs a night, the theme is rock, and my other song is Paradise City by GnR so I’ve already got belty and loud covered. 

I picked Alone but now I almost want to switch to XTC because it’s got more of a build to it. And it’s ragey at the end. I like ragey. :)

Quick informal poll. Pick one: Dear God by XTC or Alone by Heart?

Well, this is certainly an evening to be ended with reading a McChekov fic. Shh. Yes. It is this one again.

Aww I do miss writing these two. Not quite as much as Cupcake and Chekov, but close.

Matt Bomer in The Normal Heart trailer [x]

Lord please let the source material and actors be stronger than Ryan Murphy. Amen.

He can probably keep it together for a single movie. Anything over a few hours and his continuity falls through the floor though.

Not that I’m watching this or anything associated with Ryan Murphy again.  That ship sailed a couple of years ago. He and all of his projects are dead to me forever.

It’s a fantastic play and a really important story, so I’ll be supporting it and Larry Kramer and the cast. But you do you. :)

I have absolutely nothing against actor Sean Pertwee. Seriously.
But I’m finding his characterization of Lestrade on “Elementary” slightly hard to watch after Rupert Graves’ masterful turn in the BBC version of “Sherlock.”  Especially after Graves’ recent pitch-perfect work on “The Empty Hearse,” and the drunken charm he gives us in “The Sign of Three.”
I actually feel kind of sorry for Sean. He’s trying, but there’s just no chemistry with Miller, as I see it. That crucial spark — whatever electricity is connecting Graves and Cumberbatch — just isn’t there. At all.
There are things I want to like about CBS’ stateside attempt at Sherlock, but I just keep getting let down at every turn. To be honest, I’d much rather see more of Rhys Ifans’ inspired turn as Mycroft than Lestrade.
Am I missing something, “Elementary” watchers?

I’m a maaaaaassive fan of Rupert’s take on Greg Lestrade, but, for what it’s worth, I think Sean Pertwee is doing a great job as Gareth Lestrade.
I don’t particularly *like* Gareth Lestrade, but then that’s part and parcel of the character. He’s got some good qualities, which he finally showed in the last episode, but mostly he’s a cautionary tale. And to Sherlock he’s both an annoyance and a reminder of his own past bad behaviour. That’s the sort of thing that makes an easy relationship difficult.
In a way, he’s a lot more realistic than Greg Lestrade, who’s apparently got the patience of a saint considering he sticks around despite the bullshit that Sherlock puts him through.

I think what you’re missing, OP, is that Elementary’s Lestrade isn’t supposed to be equivalent to BBC’s Lestrade - Gregson is the one playing that role on Elementary. 
Jonny’s Sherlock already has real, meaningful, well-rounded relationships with two different cops on Elementary, so bringing in a Lestrade that related to him the way Rupert’s Greg relates to his own Sherlock would be pointless. Redundant. Sean’s Lestrade isn’t supposed to be an echo of Rupert’s in the slightest. You’re comparing two entirely different relationships. 
You should compare how BBC Sherlock treats his Lestrade versus how Jonny’s Sherlock treats Gregson, because that’s the equivalent relationship. And I’m sorry but the respect and cooperation that Sherlock and Gregson show each other is evolutionary leaps higher than any relationship BBC’s Sherlock has.

Is It’s Raining Men to cliche to sing for a contest with an 80s theme?
