If you’re like me, when it comes to quality musical entertainment, the first thing you think about is Pam Anderson. That’s right, she of the pneumatic torso and plasticized pouty lips. The human (OK: maybe she’s a cyborg; you can’t be too sure nowadays about things like that) Barbie doll who has shown a proclivity to attach herself to monosyllabically monikered performers (e.g., Lee, Rock). The woman who has proven that method acting is profoundly overrated if you can wear very little while emoting. In fact, it could be argued that Pam has proven that talent is overrated as long as you are, well, talent.
Anyway, before we delve into lasciviousness here and begin to explicate the opening scenes of that cinematic masterpiece, Barb Wire, let’s get to the point of what Pam is shortly going to be doing vis-à-vis the musical entertainment industry. Not being satisfied, apparently, with her basic cable cartoon appearance (OK, maybe she really is a cartoon; you can’t be too sure nowadays about things like that) as Stripperella, Barb is taking to the airwaves, or at least the satellite waves, starting October 3 on SIRIUS, the satellite radio provider that is trying to prove, apparently, that its not so serious.
She’ll be the host of “Club Pam,” which probably has that name because odds are better that she’ll remember what it is called if it includes her given moniker. According to the “official” announcement, “During the show, Pamela [note the higher level of sophistication here, using the other two syllables] will speak intimately, and one-on-one to her fans, as if they have been invited into her home to lounge in her playroom.” Yes, on a network that prides itself as being “the only satellite radio service bringing listeners more than 100 streams of the best music and entertainment coast-to-coast,” intimacy is what it is all about.
Anderson is quoted as saying, “I have an opportunity to work at home, out of my bedroom. . .who could ask for a better job?” And the ellipsis isn’t added. Playroom. Bedroom. Deck of a boat. . . .
