Celebrities whose names I would like to remember, but can't

There is only so much room left in my brain, and, while these 5 actors deserve a slice of my gray matter, Elmo's World and Dora the Explorer must take precedence. (I'm the mother of a 2-year-old.)

1. John Hannah
I have a strong attachment to "Sliding Doors" (Danny and I watched it on our oft-disputed first date); he was also in "Four Weddings and a Funeral" where he read the W.H. Auden poem, "Funeral Blues". Beautiful.

2. William H. Macy
"Magnolia" (yeah), "Pleasantville" (boo) and "Fargo", which Brendan can't believe I haven't seen yet.

3. Philip Seymour Hoffman
Also in "Magnolia", he cracked me up as 'Lester Bangs' in "Almost Famous". And I would love to see him in "Love Liza", if I can convince someone to watch it with me.

4. Steve Zahn
In "That Thing You Do", but my favorite role is 'Sammy' in "Reality Bites". (Can anyone forget his dazzling performance in the "PFLAG" skit with Jeanane Garafalo?)

5. Topher Grace
(Can you blame me? What kind of a name is "Topher"?) Probably best known for his role in "That 70s Show", he made his film debut in "Traffic." His character in the movie is much more interesting.

Vanilla Ice + Tammy Fae + Scientology = TV

Faded rap star VANILLA ICE has become the latest celebrity to be drawn to the teachings of the Church of Scientology.

The ICE ICE BABY rapper, 35, joins a star-studded list of devotees - including TOM CRUISE, JOHN TRAVOLTA and LISA MARIE PRESLEY - and even enjoyed long discussions about the religion with former TV evangelist TAMMY FAYE MESSNER as they filmed their upcoming reality show THE SURREAL LIFE 2.

Messner says, "Vanilla Ice reminded me of my son; he called me Mom. He's into Scientology, and he and I had lots of discussions."

a quiz

I'll give a $10 iTunes certificate to the first one to tell me the name of the person who wrote this poem.


Beams of the dawn at the angel
with a calm, silent sea
with a hundred times we write,
with a chance we can open up
a steady rhythm in his face
silent room
desolate beach,
Scattering remains of love.

Just to see if I can post images.
