Laredo Texas-Alexander High school...

"Bang the drum slowly and play the fife lowly..." oh no, they aren't doing that song. No they are. Weird. That song shouldn't be peppy.

The Telemundo float has arrived. telemundo is owned by NBC/Universal, you know. Enough with the shameless plugging of the NBC!! Just let us enjoy the Telemundo superstars. Or not.

Al claims that we will next see the first ever Latina balloon...Dora the Explorer. Confused

Matt tries on his Spanish for size. It doesn't fit.

Donde esta marching bands, Senor Lauer???

Who the [censored] is Tiffany Evans? And why is she singing a mid-tempo song with a bunch of NFL players? I'm just not seeing the connection.

Ah...Charlie Brown. Now here is Tradition. Yes with a captial T.

Matt just called CB a lovable blockhead. It didn't sound natural.

Oklahoma Rising

Hey the people on the float are actually...Okies!

Kristin Chenowith singing not some teenybopper. Naturally singing "Oklahoma!" Yes, that is the state song. Don't laugh, you know it. Do I know the words to YOUR state song? Probably not.

MamaMorgan is such a cynic. She just pointed out the only reason we got to see the OK float was because KC is a regular on the West Wing. Oh the NBC promotional machine.

hehe

40 Hip hop kids....what's with all the white kids? I hate when white kids try to be ghetto. Matt trying to talk ghetto is mildly amusing.

Katie just said Al was "Getting down with your bad self" Eek

Katie loves when Matt speaks Spanish. Hell, it *is* amusing. You get a pass on that one Katie.

Natasha Beddingfield is trying to hit it big in the US.

When these floats are submitted do the NBC parade organizers have a clause in the entry form that "You must have a bland popstar on the float unless you can produce someone with a bigger draw or an NBC television personality?"

Yeah, The Click Five. They sing that wildly overplayed 'Just The Girl" song. They're alright.

hmm...is it possible that Steve Martin is the only one who can pull off "King Tut"? I hate to say that only one person can do a song...but Jai Rodriguez doesn't quite have the salesmanship for such a cheesy song.

Official word from scroll cheerleader: Cheerleaders must cheer. Non-cheering cheerleaders are a dance team.

And the clown warning was for a random clown mixed in with the otherwise parade-worthy NYPD folks.
Random clowns are the scariest on account of their unpredictability.

Ya know, earlier today Arista asked me if I thought there might be a "Rent" film performance or float or something. At the time I was not sure. I should have realized that the answer is "no". Rent is not currently being aired on NBC. Roll Eyes

(I think some of MommaNora's cynical-ism is rubbing off on me....)

it has just occurred to me that the next Scroller gathering will have to feature JagerTea...which could be scary.

The Anheiser Busch Clydesdales...again we get a brief shot and then back to Katie, Matt and Al.

Michael Feinstein...you know, you'd think he could have pulled a Gershwin song for this rather than--I don't have words to describe it. I remember MF on Larry King once talking about TinPan Alley songwriters would never come right out and say what a song was about in the lyrics. I wish that modern songwriters would learn that lesson. "A Gift of Thanks" is too corny for George and Ira.
