Production is underway for the reboot of “The X-Files” and David Duchovny says the first script he got made him cry. After I read that headline, I thought to myself—“Really? The script was that bad?”
“The X-Files” premiered on Fox in the fall of 1993. I had recently just separated from my wife in Cincinnati and was living in Springfield, Ohio. I followed a job there. I had a running joke about Springfield and it was—“if you are a homeless person, Springfield would be a great place to live, because there are so many empty buildings.”
Not kidding. Probably mean, but not kidding.
Watching “The X-Files” was a good diversion for me in Springfield as I truly didn’t like living there. I only lasted there for about six months and found another job back in Cincinnati.
I kept up my interest with that show when I moved back to The Queen City. It stayed on for nine seasons—a bit too long in my view.
I’ll watch the reboot when it comes back or at least sample it, but if it doesn’t make me cry like it did for David Duchovny, I’m turning it off.
Kidding. I think.

What the hell. I think I’m just going to end the blogging week here with a Friday goodbye to David Letterman.
From one Hoosier to another: Goodbye.
There. I said it. Glad to get that over with.
I’m going to wait a few weeks before selling my “Late Show” stuff on E-Bay.
Relax. I’m probably kidding.
Dave’s last show was nearly perfect. Glad he went for the laughs instead of getting all sad about leaving. I’m sure he was sad, but I’m glad he didn’t show it. He’s a typical Hoosier (I should know).
Dave’s final top 10 was a stand out.
And just so you know, close to 14 million people watched his last show. That’s pretty damn good.
He’s going to be missed, but nothing in life stays the same. I think Dave knows this too.
I hope he has a good weekend and well as all of you. I shall return here on Sunday.

Well, golly. Nick Fradiani is our new “American Idol.” A year from now, will we even remember his name?
Why do so many “American Idol” winners remain losers? That’s kind of a mean question isn’t it? I really don’t mean it to be as I’m not a mean person, but at least it’s an honest question.
Let me back off a little bit as I’m probably not the one who should be asking the question. I make no effort at all to keep up on current music or what is played on the radio or any of that. Having said this, I went online and did a Google search of all the “American Idol” winners.
I’m thinking only three of them have had any kind of long term success—Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Hicks. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.
I watched season 9 of “American Idol” back in 2010. I kind of got interested in it. I’m not sure why—please just consider it a bad year for me.
The winner in 2010 was Lee Dewyze and he’s a pretty good singer. Have we heard from him since? No. Dewyze has not released an original album since he won. He has gone nowhere.
It has been announced that next season will be the last for “American Idol” and it’s probably beyond time for that to happen.
Sorry. There I go being mean again.

So The Huffington Post recently turned 10 years old. Who would have ever thought? Arianna Huffington is now looking forward to the next 10. You can click here to find out more.
I like The Huffington Post just fine and I visit there at least a couple times a day. I’m thinking they want me to visit even more as I’m being sent emails constantly from them with “breaking news.” One day I kept track of how many of those things I got. I got eight of them.
To their credit, it really was breaking news stuff. At least The Huffington Post isn’t sending me emails about the Kardashians. That probably starts next week.

Can you imagine something like this happening in a Wal-Mart parking lot? Why yes! Of course you can!
Near Cleveland, Ohio, a woman locked her car in a Wal-Mart parking lot with her dog inside it. The idiot woman got caught by a cop and this smart officer made the woman sit in her Nissan Sentra for a few minutes with the windows rolled up to see how she felt.
Click here to read more about this.
I love it. More police officers should be doing this. I mean, put yourself in their paws. I’m talking about the dog. Maybe that would wise some people up.

P.S. I’ll return here on Wednesday.
Another guy, on Sunday, jumped the White House fence and was immediately arrested. Why do people constantly do this? Don’t they know what’s going to happen? Apparently not.
Also apparent is that these idiots aren’t listening to enough Cole Porter. “Don’t Fence Me In:” Those were Porter’s words to live by.
OK. I don’t really know that. I do know I can play that song on my mandolin and that Dick Cavett and ABBA know it too.
I’ll be back on Thursday. I’ll try to write something better but, as you know, there are no promises here.

I haven’t written about this Twin Peaks reboot because I never really believed it would happen. I’ve heard rumors about it returning for years and if wishing could make it so, I would love to see it start up again even if just for old times’ sake. I don’t think I ever missed one show. Simply put, I loved it.
When Showtime announced they were going to do nine new shows, I started to get a little excited. Silly me. David Lynch, one of the creators of Twin Peaks, is backing out of the project—all about money, of course. Why is everything always about money?
Doing Twin Peaks without David Lynch wouldn’t be a bunch of fun. Cast members have a few things to say about that.
It all could still happen. Or not. None of this is life and death and I’m just going to believe it when I see it.
