The mouse is holding a piece of paper that says: "Peace, Joy, Health, Happiness" in French. This is my new favorite Christmas Card! What do mice and lobsters have to do with Christmas? Nothing! That's why I like it! Click the picture to see more odd Christmas cards from the early days of the industry when they didn't quite get it!
Here's the official video for the new AC/DC song "Rock or Bust." There is also a "behind the scenes" video I have included. You may notice that drummer Phil Rudd does not appear in the video. Hmmmm... Don't know the latest on Phil's situation but, this much I do know:
Sammy Hagar will join an illustrious list of fellow rock stars when he appears this Sunday in cartoon form on The Simpsons. The Red Rocker's voice and animated likeness will be featured in an episode titled "Covercraft," in which Homer -- suffering from a mid-life crisis after Moe's bar closes -- becomes the bassist in a cover band with some other local dads.
"Dumb and Dumber To" hits theaters today! -- Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are back as the dimwitted duo Lloyd and Harry for the Farrelly brothers' sequel to the 1994 original. This time, the friends go on a road trip to find Harry's long-lost child.
We had the opportunity to talk with Seth Gold from the t.v. show "Hardcore Pawn." Although he seems a little abrasive on the show, he couldn't have been a nicer guy! I am officially a member of "Team Seth" now!
Today is election day all across our country. Please take time to vote. Many races are very close this election, so please know you are making a difference when you vote today. There are people around the world who wish they had the option of voting. Wear your "I voted" sticker proudly! I feel that when I vote I exercise the freedom for which our fine military has fought. Don't become jaded and say, "It doesn't matter". The nation will always face problems, but you can help determine the problem solvers.
When the KC Royals made it to the post season for the first time in 29 years everybody was excited. Then they won the Wild Card game. After they swept the Angels I thought I would start growing a beard in honor of the Royals as many of the players are sporting beards. I said I would shave once the Royals lost a game. Hard core fans were saying to me: "shave it when they lose a series, not a game!!" My response was that the beard was my contribution to baseball superstition. If I keep the beard till they lose a game, they won't lose a game. I truly didn't expect it to work so well!! lol!! And so the beard lives to see another day. And if they sweep this series, I'm gonna get a little bushy.
Many people heard the words "I am Iron Man" for the first time 44 years ago today. On Sept. 18, 1970, Black Sabbath released their second LP titled "Paranoid". The album contains several of the band's signature songs, including "Iron Man", "War Pigs" and the title track. This album is considered by many to be their best work however the album cover art is just plain stupid! To me it looks like a character from a Monty Python skit. The album was originally supposed to be called "War Pigs" and I guess the guy on the cover was a "War Pig"?????? Anyway, in case you forgot what the cover looks like:
Thank you to all the folks who have donated cars to the Cars4Heroes/Cars4Christmas charity. On Thursday Phil and I will have the pleasure of handing over the keys to veterans in need. It's hard to imagine that after serving one's country overseas a vet could return and be so under employed that he or she needed help getting a car. A car helps provide: job security, freedom, independence, so important in a city with out much in the way of public transit, yet.
I'm going to start looking through my bags of change! I'm not a coin collector but I do put my spare change in a bag and when it's full I take it to the bank. I'm going to look through the quarters first.
The railroad overpass that connects Old Town to Downtown is set to get a new facelift. When I was a teenager there was no "Old Town" so that overpass was just another part of Douglas that we cruised to pickup girls. People would rev the engines of their cars when they went underneath because the sound was so resonant. It was awesome!! As recently as after the Motley Crue/Alice Cooper show I drove underneath it and people were doing burnouts.
I know you might be sick of seeing people doing the ALS "Ice Bucket Challenge" but you can't deny the positive effect it's having on the fund raising and awareness for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)
