What I Like About You (TV series)
What I Like About You is an American television sitcom set in New York City, following the lives of two sisters: older sister Valerie Tyler and teenaged sister Holly. The series ran on The WB from September 20, 2002, to March 24, 2006, with a total of 86 episodes produced. With the exception of a brief period early in the second season, What I Like About You was a headline on The WB's Friday Night Comedy Lineup. Throughout their time on the series, two main characters—Vince and Lauren—were never given last names. Jeff was never given a last name, although in the artwork for the season 1 DVDs, he is listed as "Jeff Campbell". Dan Cortese as Vic Meladeo Edward Kerr as Rick Stephen Dunham as Peter David de Lautour as Ben Sheffield Abigail Breslin Fran Drescher Megan Fox JoAnna Garcia Rebecca Gayheart Tony Hawk Cameron Mathison Jenny McCarthy Jason Priestley Luke Perry Ian Ziering The series takes its title from the song of the same name, released on a hit record by The Romantics in 1980. A cover version of the song, performed by the Canadian all-female rock group Lillix, was used as the theme song for the show.
Lillix's cover version was heard on the soundtrack of the 2003 remake of Freaky Friday and the soundtrack of the film 13 Going on 30. The theme was remixed into a techno/dance style theme for the second season by Philip Steir; the pilot episode had a short opening sequence and the cast members' names were only shown over the cold open. The title sequence used scenes of New York as a background, with an animation of the show's logo in which the letters "i" and "o" appeared first in a larger size than other characters, the word "what" slid in from the left side of the screen, the word "like" expanded and contracted, the "ab" and "ut" in "about" slid in from both sides of the screen to meet the "o", the word "you" slid upward from the bottom of the screen, appearing to collide with the rest of the title before all the characters settled into place; this same animation was carried over to the season one opening titles. The first season's opening sequence featured intercut scenes of two girls portraying younger versions of Holly and Val, with shots of Bynes and Garth sticking their tongues out at the camera, mixed with footage excerpted from the first four episodes.
After every two to five such rectangles, the headshot of each cast member would appear with its name. Newer footage excerpts were inserted in the sequence for the episode "Valentine's Day" and again for the episode "The Fix-Up", which replaced nearly all of the excerpts from the first four episodes; the opening title sequence used for the rest of the series featured the show's cast in front of digitally inserted scenes of New York at night. Different versions of the sequence were used for SD and HD broadcasts: the SD version seen in The WB, TeenNick and until October 6, 2010 in ABC Family airings, featured a letterbox-style version with the cast and creators' names in a black bar below the sequence; the sequence was modified twice. From April to September 2006, The WB aired a daily hour of reruns of the series during its Daytime WB afternoon programming block alongside 8 Simple Rules; when The CW launched in September 2006, reruns of the series moved to the new network's CW Daytime block, remaining until September 2008.
In 2008, the program moved over to ABC Family to air in various timeslots during the daytime, in a letterbox format. Secondary rights are held by TeenNick which has aired the series since 2009 shortly before the network's rebrand from The N. Canadian syndicated rights are held by YTV, broadcasting the series for the first time in High Definition when the network introduced an HD channel in 2011. On May 1, 2007, Warner Home Video released the complete first season on DVD in region 1; the 3-disc set included a gag reel as the set's only bonus feature. Because of music licensing issues, Lillix's cover of the theme song was removed and replaced with a generic pop-rock song produced for the set. Due to low DVD sales and high music licensing costs, no further seasons were given a general retail release. On March 7, 2017 Warner Archive released the complete second season on DVD in region 1; the 3-disc set is a Manufacture-on-Demand release, available only from online sellers such as Amazon.com and their CreateSpace MOD program.
Despite being a Manufacture-on-Demand release, the theme song is still replaced with the same song used for the season 1 DVD set, although it was broadcast in widescreen high definition, the episodes are presented on the DVD in fullscreen format. The complete third season was released on November 27, 2018; the complete fourth and final season will be released on February 26, 2019. GLAAD Media Award 2006 - Outstanding Individual Episode
A bassist or bass player, is a musician who plays a bass instrument such as a double bass, bass guitar, keyboard bass or a low brass instrument such as a tuba or sousaphone. Different musical genres tend to be associated with one or more of these instruments. Since the 1960s, the electric bass has been the standard bass instrument for funk, R&B, soul music and roll, jazz fusion, heavy metal and pop music; the double bass is the standard bass instrument for classical music, bluegrass and most genres of jazz. Low brass instruments such as the tuba or sousaphone are the standard bass instrument in Dixieland and New Orleans-style jazz bands. Despite the associations of different bass instruments with certain genres, there are exceptions; some 1990s and 2000s rock and pop bands use a double bass, such as both Andrew Jackson Jihad, Barenaked Ladies. Some fusion jazz groups use a lightweight, stripped-down electric upright bass rather than a double bass; some composers of modern art music use the electric bass in a chamber music setting.
Some jazz big bands use electric bass. Some funk, R&B and jazz, fusion groups use synth keyboard bass rather than electric bass. Bootsy Collins and Stevie Wonder used synth bass; some Dixieland bands use double bass or electric bass instead of a tuba. In some jazz groups and jam bands, the basslines are played by a Hammond organ player, who uses the bass pedal keyboard or the lower manual for the low notes. Electric bassists play the bass guitar. In most rock, pop and country genres, the bass line outlines the harmony of the music being performed, while indicating the rhythmic pulse. In addition, there are many different standard bass line types for different genres and types of song. Bass lines emphasize the root note, with a secondary role for the third, fifth of each chord being used in a given song. In addition, pedal tones and bass riffs are used as bass lines. While most electric bass players play chords, chords are used in some styles funk, R&B, soul music, jazz and heavy metal music.

A drummer is a percussionist who creates music using drums. Most contemporary western bands that play rock, jazz, or R&B music include a drummer for purposes including timekeeping and embellishing the musical timbre; the drummer's equipment includes a drum kit which includes various drums, cymbals and an assortment of accessory hardware such as pedals, standing support mechanisms, drum sticks. In other genres in the traditional music of many countries, drummers use individual drums of various sizes and designs rather than drum kits; some use only their hands to strike the drums. In larger ensembles, the drummer may be part of a rhythm section with other percussionists playing, for example, marimba or xylophone; these musicians provide the timing and rhythmic foundation which allow the players of melodic instruments, including voices, to coordinate their musical performance. Some famous drummers include: John Bonham, Ginger Baker, Keith Moon, Neil Peart, Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Tim "Herb" Alexander, Rashied Ali, Carl Allen, Steve White, Craig Blundell, Travis Barker, Tony Royster Jr. Rick Allen.
As well as the primary rhythmic function, in some musical styles, such as world, jazz and electronica, the drummer is called upon to provide solo and lead performances, at times when the main feature of the music is the rhythmic development. There are many tools that a drummer can use for either soloing; these include cymbals, toms, auxiliary percussion and many others. There are single and triple bass pedals for the bass drum. Before motorized transport became widespread, drummers played a key role in military conflicts. Military drummers provided drum cadences that set a steady marching pace and elevated troop morale on the battlefield. In some armies drums assisted in combat by keeping cadence for firing and loading drills with muzzle loading guns. Military drummers were employed on the parade field, when troops passed in review, in various ceremonies including ominous drum rolls accompanying disciplinary punishments. Children served as drummer boys well into the nineteenth century, though less than is popularly assumed.
In modern times, drummers are not employed in battle. Buglers and drummers mass under a sergeant-drummer and during marches alternately perform with the regiment or battalion ensembles. Military-based musical percussion traditions were not limited to the western world; when Emir Osman I was appointed commander of the Turkish army on the Byzantine border in the late 13th century, he was symbolically installed via a handover of musical instruments by the Seldjuk sultan. In the Ottoman Empire, the size of a military band reflected the rank of its commander in chief: the largest band was reserved for the Sultan, it included various percussion instruments adopted in European military music. The pitched bass drum is still known in some languages as the Turkish Drum. Military drumming is the origin of Traditional grip as opposed to Matched grip of drumsticks; the drumline is a type of marching ensemble descended from military drummers, can be arranged as a performance of a drum, a group of drummers, or as a part of a larger marching band.
Their uniforms will have a military style and a fancy hat. In recent times, it is more common to see drummers in parades wearing costumes with an African, Latin, Native American, or tribal look and sound. Various indigenous cultures use the drum to create a sense of unity with others during recreational events; the drum helps in prayers and meditations.

Garner's acting earned her nominations from both the MTV Movie Awards and the Teen Choice Awards, the film was re-released in DVD in 2006 as "Fun and Flirty Edition", on Blu-Ray in 2009. On May 26, 1987, Jenna Rink, a gawky girl, yearns to be popular, but the only way she can get the ruling clique—the "Six Chicks", led by mean girl Lucy "Tom-Tom" Wyman—to attend her upcoming 13th-birthday party is by doing their homework. Jenna's best friend, the geeky boy Matty Flamhaff, arrives early to the party to give her two presents: a bright pink, dream dollhouse that he built himself and a packet of glittery "magic wishing dust", which he sprinkles on the dollhouse roof; the Six Chicks show up with the cutest boys in class and trick the naive Jenna into playing "seven minutes in heaven". While Jenna waits, blindfolded, in a closet, thinking a popular boy she has a crush on is about to enter, the Six Chicks vanish with all the boys, half the food and Jenna's completed homework.
It is Matt who walks to Jenna's horror. She locks herself in the closet and cries, wishing to be 30; the next morning, Jenna awakens in a gleaming Fifth Avenue apartment. Jenna's wish has come true: It is now 2004, Jenna, at first utterly baffled by the handsome hunk in her shower, realizes she has magically turned 30 overnight, with no idea of what happened in the intervening 17 years. Jenna discovers that she works for Poise, her favorite fashion magazine. Tough-as-nails Lucy is her co-editor and best friend, but the magazine itself is in serious trouble, having been scooped by a rival magazine named Sparkle so that the editor-in-chief believes someone inside Poise is tipping them off. Jenna, freaking out like the frightened teen, wants only to find Matty, she gets his address and races down to Greenwich Village where the now-grown Matt is a struggling photographer. To her confusion, he is distant and cold, cannot fill Jenna in on much of her missing past, because she became a hot propular girl and head of the "Six now seven Chicks", never spoke to Matt again.
She became Prom Queen—and Lucy, her only friend, is the original "Tom-Tom" after plastic surgery. While delighting in her freedom and great clothes, Jenna stumbles through a grown-up world, learning enough of life to advise other 13-year-olds whom she prefers to hang with, but her emerging past reveals she was nothing like the sweet, shy girl she had been the day before: this grown-up Jenna stole ideas, refused to speak to her parents, has office sex with the husband of a co-worker. After Jenna overhears her supposed best friend Lucy badmouthing her, in a plan to save the magazine behind her back, she decides to fix the sins of the past she cannot remember, she returns to weeps in the same basement closet. Her parents find her there, they reunite, she gets back in touch with Matt, gingerly apologizes and hires him to do the photography on her own new plans for Poise, a huge break for him. Though Matt has a fiancée in Chicago, eager for him to move there and Matt begin to fall for each other. Everyone loves Matt's photos and Jenna's new plans to save the magazine, but when Sparkle shows up yet again with this exact material, including Matt's own photographs, with Lucy as their new head, Poise folds.
Outraged, Jenna confronts Lucy for stealing, but Lucy scornfully tells her that Jenna was the one sabotaging her own magazine all along. Matt, wounded by what he thought was Jenna's betrayal, is getting married the next day. Jenna rushes out to the leafy suburb on his wedding day, hoping to persuade Matt that she was not the bad person she had seemed to be and that he would marry her if he could see who she was, but Matt in his tuxedo, says the hands of time cannot be turned back. Matt walks to the closet and pulls out the pink dollhouse he made for Jenna on her 13th birthday and kept for the 17 years. In tears, Jenna asks if he could give the homemade dollhouse back to her, which convinces Matt to sadly confess that he had always secretly loved her when she stopped being his friend. While the wedding begins in the background, Jenna looks at the dollhouse and, seeing a young Matt and herself inside, she begins to cry; as she cries specks of Matt's old dust from the dollhouse begin to whirl up around h
