OK girls, kiss

In 1995 Jill Sobule kissed a girl.  This year Katy Perry kissed a girl too.  Any chance of getting these two walking the walk the way they talk the talk and locking lips with each other?

That'll happen right around the time Cesar Milan and Victoria Stillwell fulfill my demented wishes and elope — which means I probably shouldn't hold my breath.

For my money, Perry's music video is definitely hotter (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAp9BKosZXs) than Sobule's quirky Fabio-infused offering (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SclQZ4W2VZ0).

But maybe there is an outside chance Sobule and Perry can connect, even if it's only lyrically.

According to EW.com Sobule said earlier this year that "maybe I'll write a third 'I Kissed a Girl' for fun. It will be about how I kissed her, Ieft the dull boyfriend, got gay-married in California, and really no one gave a s—“

* STILL GLUED TO THE TV SET: I came back for a second helping of Fox's "Fringe" this week and I think I'll give the show at least a half dozen episodes before settling on a final verdict.

Overall, I like the show with some minor reservations.

The production value is sharp, the action is solid and the conspiracy surrounding "The Pattern" and Massive Dynamic looks like it has a lot of potential.

But the show has to lose the cow, as soon as possible.  If "Happy Days" jumped the shark into oblivion, "Fringe" is dangerously close to milking the cow until it doesn't have a viable audience.

Fortunately I have as big a place for my heart for pure absurdity as I do for free lunches, so I can forgive "Fringe" for odd scenes with cows and too much screen time spent on letting Dr. Bishop's character play mad scientist in Harvard's basement.

Hopefully "Fringe" can strike the right balance between drama, action and comic relief sooner rather than later.

* WHY WOULD ANYONE PAY FOR THIS?: According to a Bay City News story posted by the Contra Costa Times (http://www.contracostatimes.com/news/ci_10509375?nclick_check=1) McAfee Inc. has let it's naming rights contract expire which means McAfee Coliseum will once again be known as Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty says naming rights are available for the right price and "sponsoring the stadium is a terrific opportunity for any entity desiring a high-profile, highly visible, long-term marketing option."

But for millions of dollars what self-respecting company would want to be associated with an an ugly, outdated stadium, a crime-ridden city in decline, a low-budget baseball team in rebuilding mode that can't wait to move to Fremont and a dysfunctional football team that hasn't had a winning record in half a decade?

Good luck putting lipstick on that pig.
