Shut Out From Celine Again

It's no secret that I love all things Celine Dion. Go ahead, make fun of me. I'm not ashamed. The voice. The accent. The over-the-top performances. I love every scrap of it.

I couldn't even see the movie theater broadcast. (12/17/2007)

Of course, when it was announced several months back that she would be closing her Las Vegas show in December, I really wanted to see it just one more time. I had already seen her show once, back in 2003 I think it was. But due to various reasons, I was not able to schedule a second trip.

Heartbroken, I accepted that fate. But I learned that I had another opportunity to see the final performance. As it turned out, a company called Fathom Events was broadcasting Celine's final performance at 200 movie theaters across the country. It was one night only, and I was determined to at least see this.

Unfortunately, fate handed me another cruel blow when I learned that the Celine movie theater broadcast was completely sold out at all the theaters in Orange County. I had found out about this event too late. Oh well. I guess I can always hope to find the DVD under the Christmas tree! :)

Fear not, Oh lover of the Canadian songbird...I hear that they are going to broadcast the concert on network TV sometime very soon...and with the strike still raging onward, I imagine they might just play it more than once!

And hey, there is no shame in Celine worship. That skinny bitch can really blow!

Um, just to clarify...I meant "blow" as in "sing", so get your minds outta tha gutter you Celine-o-phobes...

Um, accept your fate and stop questioning the dish that life is serving you...cold, and songless that it is...

"Cold and songless"? Yikes...

Guess Tim just doesn't understand hard core über-fans like you. Perhaps if you replaced his cherished Annie Lennox bathroom pic with one of Celine, he might be a tad more compassionate. :)
