I am the All-Valley Karate Champion

A friend of mine who lives two time zones away burned me a CD and mailed it to me for no other reason than that she thought I'd like it. She was right. Among the many worthy 80's hits on it have been "Total Eclipe of the Heart" "The Final Countdown" and some Air Supply.
But the two best songs have been the theme to Greatest American Hero and "You're the Best, from The Karate Kid

Needless to say, I have been listening to it nonstop and air-kicking while cleaning my dojo and trying to unravel exactly how I feel about HBO's "The Comeback." It reminds me of "The Office" but might have a fatal flaw that's going to doom it. Namely, the character we're supposed to identify with and root for is also the one who we're supposed to be laughing at. I know this is the kiss of death to say this, but stay tuned: I may have more to say about this. Until then ... Fear does not exist in this dojo, does it?
