Top Five For Geminis!

George made it into the top five (and he certainly deserves to, in my opinion)!
Anyway, you can still VOTE!
(Now I know some of you guys want to vote for Debbie Travis, and as fun as watching 'Facelift' and 'Painted House' is, it's George we're talking about here :P)
So vote now, and remember to get everyone you know to (even if it means bribing co-workers), because we only have about a month until the winner is announced on November 4, 2006!

Go George! :)

Congrats George! We'll spread the word to vote. I sure it will get more voter turnout than a certain mayor race.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I thought the public voting was done once the final nominees were announced. Thanks for letting us know, Becky.

Becky said...

No problem, Barb B, but you should really thank Barb W, she was the one who told me :)

This is really off topic, but have you seen the new Hour commercial? Not the "celebrity singing" one, that one's been on for a while, but the one where George says something like:
"There was a lot of press coverage this summer about the fact that I took out my nose ring... truth is, I didn't take it out. I moved it."
And then he looks down.
Did you really have to scar me for life like that George? :P

Oh jeeze, a "prince albert". That's just gross. I like piercings on dudes, but YUCK! Lets hope that his nose ring was only moved to his POCKET. :P

I keep catching the same commerical. How many are there? It'd be neat if someone would YouTube them. Just putting it out into the universe though maybe I will set the VCR and see what I find on CBC tonight. Taping to TV to watch commercials. Oh dear!

Brooksie said...

By same - I meant the same commercial over and over - not specifically the piercing one which I have not seen.

Barbara said...

I have not seen any of The Hours commercials and I have been watching the CBC for two days now... Did they pull them off?
I asked Sarah of The Hours website to put them up there so we could see 'em on demand (so to speak).
She said she is looking to do just that.

promos are up:

I have yet to see a commercial for the new season besides the one that aired during the summer. Also, my buses were full of adverts last year. Not this year, yet. There is one for the CBC with George's photo. I tend to sit below that one, LOL!

Allison said...

Thanks for the link Brooksie. I haven't seen any promos yet.

considering how many different promos there are, and the amount of cbc i've been watching recently, i am surprised that i've only actually seen one of these on air (it was one of the basic informational ones). i was sure i'd catch one during the season opener of rick mercer but alas, no.

but now, thanks to the wonder of the web, i've seen them all. :)

Barbara said...

I know I was watching RMR and even THH22M I even watched 'Hockey a peoples History' and saw no commercials for The Hour.
Maybe they are too _____ for prime time? I'm glad Sarah put 'em where we can see 'em. Thank you Sarah! And a big :-b to the CBC for not playing them more.

668 aka neighbour of the beast said...

you got me thinkin', and i realized i have only seen a commerical once for the hour and i am pretty sure it was during the sunday morning version of coronation street. the powers that be in promotion at the cbc have got me wondering once again.

FYI - I caught two of the Hour's promos featured during the Peter Sellers movie on CBC a week or so ago - Geoffrey Rush was excellent BTW
