Usher :: Here I Stand

It's hard to believe that it's been four summers since everyone was pumping Yeah!!! from their car stereos. Since then Usher Raymond IV has gotten married and had a baby boy with wife Tameka Foster, so it makes sense that this newest album might be a little more mature. In some places this is true, but first single and chart topper In This Club is not one of those tracks. It's a pure club groove with Usher at his lady-loving best. The rest of the album shows a few different sides of grown-up Usher. Trading Places will satisfy the hip-hop heads, while Moving Mountains is classic Usher emotion where it sounds like he's singing for one last chance. New Daddy and husband Usher make an appearance too. In Prayer For You, he sings a little song to his young son, and Lifetime is a smooth ballad to his baby mama. With 18 tracks (one is hidden), Here I Stand is a nice comeback for Usher and we hope little baby Usher V knows that he's now the Prince of R & B because his dad is still the King.

I saw the premiere before I left and I have to say, I was somewhat impressed. Of course it's not as good as BMW but I think they have good potential.

I was very impressed by the first episode of Doctor Who I watched which I believe was called "Rose". It was creepy  but with enough of a hint of humor that it made for an enjoyable and interesting program. Me and my dad will definitely be continuing to watch more and more episodes of Doctor Who in the future.

The answer, obviously, is Doctor Who. The show has technically been running for almost 51 years. It's  a British T.V. show about an alien with two hearts who has been living for over 1,000 years, with a time machine that can travel anywhere, or anytime, in the universe. But there's a catch to his machine, which is known as a T.A.R.D.I.S, (Time And Relative Dimension In Space): It is forever broken and disguised as a 1950's telephone box. He chooses not to fix it, despite the companions he travels with wondering to themselves, "Why doesn't he fix it? Why did he have to break it as telephone police box?" He also tends to attempt to keep the companions for as long as possible. They tend to keep him in check, safe, sane, and non-genocidal. After all, being 1,800 years old, and I'm just guessing precisely how old he is, can make you feel lonely, angry, confused, scared, and vengeful. He had to destroy his whole planet to protect the rest of the universe from being destroyed by his people and their age old enemies, the Daleks. He will forevermore remember that day, and as punishment, from the self concious weapon he used,will have to live through for a long, long time.
