I'm just as confused as you are about that headline! But, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has made a commercial for the 'Pro-Vegitarian' movement, and they were going to air it during the Superbowl.Funny timing since it's an un-official MEAT EATING holiday!MMMMMM, wings, ribs, tips, sausage and every other way you can think to eat meat!The commercial has been banned by NBC...Not because of the 'no meat' stance, but because it's TOO SEXY!?When I heard about the video, the words that stuck out to me were...SIMULATED SEX WITH VEGETABLESI know right...?You're thinking... "I gotta see this"Well, you know that I have your back, so here you go!
I'm not sure that this is real or not. But, I read it on the air today and I got a ton of calls to post it online. I looked on Snopes to see if it was fake, and I checked Craigs List to find the real post... No luck on either...But here's the email that I got, and thanks to Shaun T. for sending it to me!To the Guy Who Mugged Me Downtown (Downtown, Savannah , Georgia)
I was the white guy with the black Burberry jacket that you demanded I hand over shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I hope you somehow come across this message. I'd like to apologize.
I didn't expect you to crap your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket. Truth is, I was wearing the jacket for a reason that evening, and it wasn't that cold outside. You see, my girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber 1911 .45 ACP pistol for Christmas, and we had just picked up a shoulder holster for it that evening. Beautiful pistol, eh? It's a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head, isn't it?
I know it probably wasn't a great deal of fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge flopping about in your pants.
I'm sure it was even worse since you also ended up leaving your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. I couldn't have you calling up any of your buddies to come help you try to mug us again. I took the liberty of calling your mother, or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, and explaining to her your situation. I also bought myself some gas on your card. I gave your shoes to one of the homeless guys over by Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all of the cash in your wallet, then I threw the wallet itself in a dumpster.
I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell. They'll be on your bill in case you'd like to know which ones. Alltel recently shut down the line, and I've only had the phone for a little over a day now, so I don't know what's going on with that. I hope they haven't permanently cut off your service. I was about to make some threatening phone calls to the DA's office with it. Oh well.
So, about your pants. I know that I was a little rough on you when you did this whole attempted mugging thing, so I'd like to make it up to you. I'm sure you've already washed your pants, so I'd like to help you out.
I'd like to reimburse you for the detergent you used on the pants. What brand did you use, and was it liquid or powder?
I'd also like to apologize for not killing you and instead making you walk back home humiliated. I'm hoping that you'll reconsider your choice of path in life. Next time you might not be so lucky.
If you read this message, email me and we'll do lunch and laundry.
Well, as I'm sure you heard... I got married a few months back.Everyone from here was DRUNK as all hell!I've had a bunch of calls... mostly from guys believe it or not... askingWhat the hell would Mistress Carrie wear?Now, I'm not surprised that people are asking about the dress...People always ask, but usually it's WOMEN!!!So, I thought I would share a pic from my wedding album, so that you can see.I never thought you would care that much to be honest...But, here you go!And before you say it...I know, it's like Bram Stokers Dracula and the Corpse Bride!!!Would you expect anything else from me?
By David Filipov, Globe StaffAn Army National Guardsman from Rockland has died in Iraq, town officials said today. Private First Class Matthew M. Pollini, 21, was a member of the 772nd Military Police Company, a National Guard unit based in Taunton, which was deployed to Iraq in December. Matthew Polliniâs parents, Frederick and Carolyn Pollini, were notified of his death Thursday night, the town selectmenâs office said.A man who answered the phone at the Pollini home in Rockland referred a reporter to the Massachusetts National Guard. "It's been a nightmare all day," said the man.A Defense Department spokesman declined to comment, citing the rule that requires the military to wait 24 hours after the last next-of-kin is notified before releasing the name of a casualty.With everything going on in the country this week, it's important that we remember all of those American's that are not at home.My heart aches for the family of PFC Pollini.There are several videos online from some great bands that pay tribute to our troops...I thought I would share some of them with you.
Thank you Private First Class Pollini for your service.
Well, it's Thursday! My early day... UGH!9am is way to early for me to be anywhere!!!9am every Thursday is the Music MeetingÂ for the Programming staff here at WAAF.It's the day that we sit down and listen to all of the music that we've been sent in the last week.It's also when we decide what new stuff we're going to start playing.We got the new U2 this week, it's called 'Get On Your Boots'.Have you heard it?Let me know what you think.I got a song from a band that you may know...Steel Panther...They were called Metal Skool...If you've been to the Key Club in L.A. or looked on You Tube, you've seen them!They are an 80's band... kinda.You have to see them, to believe it.If you want to see where they came from... sorta...Watch their Behind The MusicEvery band that goes through L.A. stops to see Steel Panther and they get up on stage and perform...Corey Taylor, Sully Erna, Pink, you name 'em... They've played with Steel Panther.They have a record deal now, and their first single is called "Death To All But Metal"With lyrics like, "Death to Britney Spears, F*#K that little slut, Kill madonna too then F*#K her in the butt"You know it's going to be a great album!!!If you wanna hear the song, Click HereSometimes, the Music Meeting sucks, when all you have to listen to is CRAP...This made me laugh for an hour!Let me know what you think of it...and if you ever hear something that we should be playing, just let me know!
On Sunday, I had a chance to interview James Hetfield from Metallica, backstage at the Garden.I, like many Metallica fans, was worried about one of my favorite bands after the last album... St. Anger.I really tried to love it.But compared to previous releases... like Master of Puppets and ...And Justice for All, it just didn't hold up!The band, label, managers etc. all tried to rally the troops around the release, and even though it sold well when compared to other bands albums, it failed compared to Metallica's previous successes.I watched the movie, Some Kind of Monster, and saw the 'behind the scenes' conflict going on with the band... and I was worried!What happened to one of my favorite bands?I mean, they toured... and kicked ass...But, I hold them to such a standard... I thought they were never going to be the same again!I was wrong!After I heard Death Magnetic for the first time, I knew it was GREAT!!!A few more listens, and I was convinced that it was their best albumÂ since the 'Black album'...But, after sitting down with James for 30 minutes on Sunday night...I am convinced!Metallica is back and better than ever!As I waited in the backstage warm up room for James to come in, I expected a frantic entrance, surrounded by handlers...Â he's James Hetfield... He sings in Metallica... He just got into the Rock N Roll HALL OF FAME...He should have handlers!But, he walked in alone.He was happy, he looked great! He was ready toÂ sit down and answer anything I could ask... no attitude... NONE!You never know with musicians, if they are going to have an attitude or not! I'veÂ never known him to, but like I said...youÂ never know!Metallica is back to where they belong... ON TOP!At a time where music and musicians are becomming disposable, I'm happy that Metallica is here to stay.They have enough money to retire, and never be seen again! But, after talking to James, they continue because of the love of the music!They still have the enthusiasm of a young band, just trying to 'make it'...As the Music Director, I see a lot of bands come and go...And so many bands try to be the 'new' Metallica!Here's some advice... Metallica is the 'new' Metallica!That slot is filled, do your own thing, find your own sound, because after Sunday night no one is looking for a 'new Metallica'.We like the old one still, thanks!
In 2008 we saw the equivalent of the Holy Grail in Rock n' Roll...AC/DC, Metallica and Guns 'n Roses all released new albums... I'm surprised that we didn't all explode...In 2009 the trend continues, which trend?The fact that you can't tell what decade it is based on the bands releasing new music!U2 has released the info on their 12th studio album 'No Line On the Horizon' due out on 3/3/09Also due out, Alice In Chains, Kiss, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Anthrax, Megadeth, Lynryd Skynryd and Queensryche.What year is it again?Oh yeah... 2009!You'd never know it by this list!I guess the saying "what's old, is new again" is true!People ask me all the time, 'why do you guys play so much old music'?The answer... Because people love it!Look at the list of bands releasing new music this year...The only thing that hasn't happened... YET...New Zeppelin and Floyd!Could it happen?Why not?Did you ever think the Chinese Democracy would come out?I didn't!What album would you like to see come out in 2009?
