The Tony Awards are on!

8 pm Sunday on CBS. Super opening number. Hugh Jackman is the host. Very talented guy!


You got: You’re very passive-aggressive.
You are a master of finding subtle ways to dig at people. There’s no need to be direct when tiny hints will do the job. You’re very happy to express any hostility through other methods. It might not be the healthiest way to be.

I don't really know the music of most of them, but...

I would not consider Mariah Carey and Celene Dion "rock" singers.

I like Dar Williams, Blues Traveler, and some of the others who probably won't make it.

Got HBO?

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction celebration is on and it is wonderful! Great music. Celebrating KISS right now.
