    Don Cornelius: Peace, love, soul -- and civil rights

  • Here's the beef about lip-syncing

    Here's why people get so upset at lip-syncing. When I was a teenager, I was in a band. One summer we got a "gig" (translation: any performance outside my parents' basement.) It was an outdoor party, on a beach not far from Atlantic City. I won't bother...

    Live: Flight of the Conchords at the Orpheum Theatre

    A couple of years ago, the Daily Press' own music buffs Sam McDonald and Mike Holtzclaw shared some favorite tunes for setting that very romantic mood on Valentine's Day. Here are the songs they chose - as well as a few clunkers to avoid: Great songs,...
  • Chocolate Rain

    For me, Tay Vonday is that freak once in a while pan sexual man-child that you look at and can't help but scratch your head and wonder just what's the deal with this guy.  When he opens his mouth however and he has a voice as deep as Barry White?  It's...
  • The Singing Competition

         Jen insisted that I "hustled" her.  She insisted that I was playing possum when I insisted that I had never sung karaoke before, and wasn't any good.      In full disclosure, I guessed I wouldn't completely stink - both my parents were singers, so I...
  • Album Review: Common's 'Universal Mind Control'

    The once-underground hip-hop artist Common painted himself into a corner a while ago as a chin-stroking hippie who can still hang with the harder types. It might've gotten Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr. a few Hollywood jobs, but it didn't help diversify his image...
  • One night with Prince

    It was 11 p.m. on the night before New Year's Eve, and I was doing something I hadn't expected would crown my 2008: sitting in Prince's limousine as the legend lounged beside me, playing unreleased tracks on the stereo. "This is my car for Minneapolis,"...

    Editor's note: This is Peter Buffa's final humor column for the Daily Pilot. We thank him for 15 years of Sunday morning smiles. Columnist Patrice Apodaca will move from Saturdays to Sundays next weekend. * Ever seen a sports movie? If you have, you...
