  • This is a reunion tour concert I would love to see...

    There are many bands that you may have been fans of back in the 70's or 80's that split up and you never thought they would get back together. Some should NEVER get back together and some just do it for the money. Just recently, Stevie Nicks confirmed rumors that a planned Fleetwood Mac reunion would take place with a tour scheduled for 2013. I never saw them in concert and I am a fan of their music. I think this will be a huge tour. What are your thoughts and what bands would you like to see reunite for a tour? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Is it the BEGINNING of the END? I think so....

    Steven Tyler has quit American Idol. We also heard that JLo may be leaving and Randy Jackson hasn't signed a new extension yet. It sounds to me that the entire judges table may be changing for next season. Are you like me though, and haven't watched the show in the last few years. The show isn't as instrumental anymore, and has lost it's impact on most of the American society. With so many new reality singing and talent shows, those seem to have most of the interest now from everyone. American Idol had a great run, but I think it may be time to hang it up. Your thoughts? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Ever wanted to be in the X Games? Click here to find out.

    So I think I have mentioned that I have a very strange but cool family. I have relatives in show business, actors and actresses, a game show host cousin, as well as my older brother who was in The Godfather. In the new generation of my family, I have an emerging cousin who is only 12 years old who is the closest thing to a professional athlete. His name is Alex. He was featured on the FUSE network show "Camp Woodward". He is quickly carving out his name and doing great things. He will compete one of these days in the Summer X Games. In the meantime, check out this video from this years X Games that I just saw. He is amazing.

  • Something I laughed at when I first came to Wichita, now I am hoping for...

    When I first moved here to Wichita, I laughed because all I heard was the west side/east side thing. You live all the way over there and drive here. I laughed because, being from a big city, a 15 minute drive on Kellogg or 235 to get to either side was nothing. I currently live on the west side, but find myself going to the east side a lot. I heard a while ago, that a popular restaurant/bar that I have gone to several times is planning on opening a location on the west side. I find myself excited knowing that since I won't have to drive all the way to the east side to go.. haha! are you the same way? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • All Star or Fan Favorite???

    It's always interesting when the time of year comes around for the All Star game in the sport that you are a fan of. All Star balloting is at times more about popularity than if they really do belong at the all star game. No matter, I find myself always watching the game. And props to the MLB for making the All Star game mean something with the winning team giving their respective league home field advantage in the World Series. I will be watching, will you? Do you vote for your favorite players for the annual all star game? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Going, Going, GONE! I don't really care anymore! Do You?

    The 2012 Home Run Derby is tonight with it being All Star time. The annual home run derby is to me, not really that big of a deal anymore. I say that, because the balls are thrown at a nothing speed and I don't find it enjoyable. Sure it's fun for the fans to keep all the balls, and to see the power of these athletes, but I just don't find it appealing anymore. What do you think? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • In the NBA, Steve Nash and Jason Kidd are going where???? WOW!

    The off season in pro sports are always fun to find out and see what trades, or restricted or unrestricted free agents sign and go play for other teams. A huge off season in the NHL with two players both signing to play for the same team for $100 million each just happened. I would tell you the names of the players, but I don't follow the NHL enough to remember. lol.

  • Spoiler Alert! You know you want to click and find out.

    The new Spiderman movie is now in theaters. The Amazing Spiderman is the name of the movie. It's a reboot of the series formerly starring Tobey McGuire. The new one stars Andrew Garfield. Also in the movie is Emma Stone, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field. I actually liked this movie and the storyline compared to the original. A better explanation of how Peter Parker gets his powers and he is more likeable. I was very into Emma Stone's character, aside from the fact that she is totally hot as a blonde. haha Ok, really, I won't spoil the movie plot line for you. But you do have to go see it. And make sure you stay after the credits start, since there is a bonus scene which serves as a cliffhanger. If you saw the movie, what did you think? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • The SHOCK of the decade is out! Are you surprised?

    So have you heard? Anderson Cooper, the journalist from CNN has publicly come out and said he was gay. My response to that is, so what. It's actually funny. Everybody thought or knew he was gay, however Anderson never publicly admitted. I have been a fan of Anderson Cooper for many years. I first saw him as a broadcaster as the overnight newsman on ABC news between 2a - 5a. From there he was the host of the short lived ABC tv show "The Mole". He has risen to where he is today, a prominent and well respected journalist on CNN. He will soon be host of his own talk show coming up in the fall. He is a member of the Vanderbilt family. Yes, that Vanderbilt family. Does it matter that he is gay. Absolutely not. He is great at what he does. Your thoughts on Anderson? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • I knew this was going to happen....

    So the movie TED came out in theaters. I knew I was going to think it was funny. The movie is about a teddy bear that comes to life after a boy wishes his teddy bear could talk. They grow up together and the movie is about John, his girlfriend, and TED all together and the antics that happen. I laughed a lot during the movie. The movie was created by Seth McFarlane, the man behind Family Guy and other popular shows. The movie also stars Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis and the funny part of the movie is also starring Sam Jones, who played Flash Gordon, a movie from the 80's that is prominantly featured in the movie. The movie debuted at #1 at the box office this past weekend. It's Rated R, but if you want to laugh, I suggest you see it.

  • Happy 40th! I bet you had one.

    Yesterday was the 40th birthday of the Atari gaming system. I had one when I was a kid. I actually had Pong before the Atari. I loved my Atari. My brothers and I played for hours and hours much to the dismay of my parents. Technology back then was amazing but obviously compared to todays gaming systems, it's laughable. I remember the basketball game was a one on one game with each player being a stick figure bouncing a sqaure shaped basketball. I remember the game Combat where you were a tank fighting another tank. I remember the football game where it was three on three and very basic. The other game I remember most was the game Maze Craze. You were a spider in a maze and had to find the end in the quickest time. We all thought it was truly amazing when Pac Man came to Atari. It was the coolest thing. haha I loved my atari. Did you have an Atari? What games did you have? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • It's FINALLY here...Will you be watching?

    Tonight is the premiere of the new TV show starring Charlie Sheen called Anger Management on the FX network. They have been hyping and promoting this show for about 6 months now. From the fallout of him leaving Two and a Half Men on CBS for his wackiness to the public feud he had with the producer of the show, I am very interested in tonights debut of the new show. The promo's of the show have been funny and I hope the show itself is just as good. I will be watching, will you? Are you a Charlie Sheen fan? let me know. johnny@1045thefox.com

  • It's ABOUT TIME... Now we will have a true champion!

    Finally, college football will have a playoff system. Starting in 2014-15, there will be a playoff system with 4 teams after the bowl games to determine the true champion each season. This has been a debate for a long time and I am a supporter of this decision. The top six bowl games will rotate each year with the winners of four of the games doing a playoff system of a semifinal and then the final championship game. This should quiet the critics ever since the BCS point system was introduced to determine the best team. I can't wait until this finally happens. What do you think? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Is breakfast really the best meal of the day?

    So this morning, I had a business breakfast. Man, I love a good ole omelette and toast and a big glass of orange juice. Here's the thing though, I never eat breakfast. I do drink coffee in the morning, and wait to eat at lunch and then have a dinner. I don't necessarily eat healthy. I don't cook often and mostly order out or get something that I can zap in a microwave. Everybody says and there have been studies and articles that say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I wish I ate breakfast more. What meal do you never miss? let me know at johnny@1045thefox.com

  • 100 degree weather, that's more like it...

    So it's hit the 100 degree mark in Wichita. I LIKE IT! I am from the south, growing up and calling Houston, TX my home. I always liked warm weather. I actually get cold at 60 degrees. So now that it's summer in Kansas, I actually am happy about the weather. I played golf both Saturday and yesterday this past weekend. I look forward to many more 100 degree plus days. Now if we can only have a beach and surf to make it feel even more like home for me. haha.

  • Can we all move on to better things now?

    I am happy for the Miami Heat. I am happy for Lebron James. The Heat wins and Lebron gets his first championship. Yes, I think he made the right decision in leaving the Cleveland Cavs. Maybe it's just me in that I haven't lived in an NBA city in over 10 years, so pro basketball isn't a big deal to me these days. I do love college basketball though. Now that the season is over, can we all move on to better things now. what sport do you like watching the most? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Is reality real anymore?

    Within the last week, we learned that a show on HGTV about people finding a new home in a new city is staged. The show is called House Hunters. I found myself watching the show being fascinated about the process. Revelations came out from a former participant of the show that most of it is staged. Things brings me to reality TV in general. From Big Brother, Survivor, The Kardashians to Jersey Shore. Most of these shows are pushed by producers to cause friction and controversy because that's what helps the show. So is reality TV really reality? Thankfully I don't watch too much reality TV shows to care? haha. What do you think about reality TV? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Is it true that you get better with age?

    Last night, seeing the Midwest Rock and Roll Express Tour at Hartman, the thought came across my mind. Do you get better at your craft with age. The bands REO Speedwagon, Styx, and Ted Nugent have combined over 100 years of existance. The concert was amazing. The live show was great and the vibe in Hartman was electrifying. I love seeing bands play live in concert that sound exactly like they do when you hear it on their CD or on the radio. I was blown away by the show and truly enjoyed it. Did you go? What did you think of each band's set? Let me know at johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Taxpayer money flushed down the toilet over a baseball player????

    So yesterday, Roger Clemens was found NOT GUILTY on all counts for his perjury case. The US government spent millions of dollars trying to prove he lied. REALLY? Is that how our government spends our tax dollars?

  • Part 2... I guess not. I'm not surprised!

    So this past weekend, two new movies came out. The hugely hyped and promoted "Rock of Ages" movie starring Tom Cruise and also the new Adam Sandler movie "That's My Boy". Both movies struggled at the box office. I went Saturday to see the Adam Sandler movie. It's Rated R and very raunchy and over the top. I personally liked it and laughed for two hours straight. I have no plans to see the Rock of Ages movie.
