:lol: I watch Top Gear all the time. I'm totally not into cars. I think the guys (Jeremy, James and Richard) are totally funny. I have a DVR and I recorded the episode where Jay Kay beats Simon Cowell (cod-piece Cowell, as Jay calls him) and I watch it over and over and over (I love the part where Jay does his happy dance). But that's also a good episode because it has the Germany challenge and I love that too.

But anyway - I've noticed in the new episodes that they have Jay on the board. I was all confused because Jay has not been on for years. I think they are taking the "old" board and using it again because it's the same car? I'm not totally sure, though.

It's a British TV show about cars. I have heard that it's the most syndicated TV show in the world. I know it's watched all over the world. They do car reviews, they prefer fast cars. They also do "Challenges" (to me the best part). In one challenge they had to make amphibious cars and "drive" them across the English Channel! http://www.topgear.com

What we are talking about is their segment called "Celebrity in a reasonably priced car". They have a car and have celebrities drive it and put their lap time on a board and compare it with other celebrities.

Watch Jay beat Simon! Jeremy "messes" with Jay. It's priceless!

Just this minute I heard Canned Heat on the radio in a commercial! Never ever heard it on the radio. I really hope they are re~discovered here in the states ;). Cosmic!

And Little L should be all over here. Just love the disco groove!

Glad you heard Canned Heat on the radio, even if it was in a commercial Giba! :D And yes (from a few posts above), Canned Heat was in Napoleon Dynamite (I haven't seen the movie though.)

We have Just Dance 2 for Wii at home and it's lots of fun - and I did beat my daughter's score for Cosmic Girl! (She normally always wins!) We have Just Dance 1 and 3 also.

Does anyone have Singstar games for Playstation 2? I have 2 discs with Jamiroquai songs on it - Cosmic Girl (Singstar Party) and Alright (Singstar R&B). They're both difficult songs to sing in terms of getting a good score! I got my highest score of 9,710 (I think it's out of 10,000) this past weekend, for The Reason by Hoobastank! And 9,230 for Crazy in Love by Beyonce! Woohoo! :lol:

Actually did return it. Rather get a new Dance II.

But to be honest, I think my singing skills (with nephew) were higher than the ones to that dance (Cosmic Girl)! :lol:

I might not have a professional singing voice like Stormey, but I can actually sing. :D :wink:
It's in the genes, I come from a very musical family.

***Heard Love Foolosophy on a morning tv show when they returned from a commercial break! :D

:oops: Thus the high scores CosmicLea! Sorry if I offended.... my score would be a double diget maybe even a single diget :lol: but I play wicked air guitar
Yes in the genes, referring to Gary? first cousin? I get it, it's a family affair. :wink:

Oh no curse_t, I'm not offended at all, just wanted to clarify that I can carry a tune! :wink:
I can't sing as well as Gary (2nd cousin) though. But musical genes run right through that side of the family (my dad's side). :D

Like you, I would like to know what kind of score a professional singer (like Stormey) would get for Singstar though! :D
