The Kidney Now! song

So 30 Rock, right?

Last night, TV’s best comedy went out in style with an all-star tribute to Jack’s dad — singing a We Are the World-like song to get him a kidney. There was some surprising star power (Elvis Costello to Clay Aiken to Mary J. Blige) along with some people who were probably just happy to be invited (Rhett Miller and Rachael Yamagata).

The highlight of the entire song, though, was Cyndi Lauper’s admission that she was one of the drunk artists. The fact is, she’s always seemed a bit drunk. Her accent is a little hazy — does she talk like that because she’s from Queens or because she’s been stealing sips of Absolute Pear from her purse all night? But now, with that moment, she’s cemented her status as a camp icon. As if headlining the True Colors Tour weren’t bad enough, Cyndi has guaranteed that there will be drag queens dressed up like her decades from now.

    I thought 30 Rock and the Kidney song was hilarious. Great finale. What a fantastic group of celebrities that were chosen to do the tribute song. It’s nice to see that 100% of the proceeds from this song go directly to the Kidney Foundation too.

    Haha this song was so perfect. Tina Fey = genius. Glad to see they got an original ‘We Are the World-er’ in Cyndi Lauper. Also happy to see Rhett Miller in there…bright jacket and all. I can’t wait for his new album to come out, but seeing him on the Rock will have to tide me over for now.

    Many people believe that new age books are different from spiritual books, even though there are so many books available that are described as new age spiritual books. If we look at the terms new age and spiritual, we find similarities, where spiritual refers to soul or spirit and new age has been described as ‘of or relating to spiritual and consciousness raising movements’. New age books encompass health, medicine, philosophy, religion and the occult. And yet, the term new age was only coined in recent decades, mainly from the 1970’s. So that begs the question – is there such a thing as a New Age?
