How bout a little RAIN on ya!? Supposed to be a yucky next few days...PERFECT for a Back In The Day weekend, so call me up and request somethin' gooood...90's & 2000's!

Here's some shtuff......

The mayor of Milledgeville, Georgia...the town where S**tsburgh Squeelers quarterback BEN ROETHLISBERGER allegedly raped a woman...hopes that the incident will INCREASE TOURISM.

Mayor Richard Bentley told TMZ, "Anything that can draw interest to our town and make people want to visit, we would like."

And while he acknowledged that the circumstances of Milledgeville's newfound fame were unfortunate, he added, quote, "If it peaks people's interest about our city, we would certainly welcome them here."

SOUNDGARDEN...who announced that they'd be reuniting earlier this year, played their first show together in 13 years on Friday night. It happened in Seattle at a place called Showbox at the Market.

It was a "secret" show...but local fans caught wind of it, and the available tickets sold out within 15 minutes. About 1,000 fans ended up catching the show.

The band was playing under the name "NUDE DRAGONS"...which is an anagram of Soundgarden.)

At one point, singer CHRIS CORNELL told the crowd, quote, "It's a rehearsal, so if we (eff) something up, we're probably going to go through it again."

Soundgarden will be one of the headliners at Lollapalooza this year...but there aren't any further dates yet.

Here's a strange one. The musical guest for SNL the night Betty White hosts? JAY-Z! May 8th is the show, look for him.

PINK and CAREY HART have not created a fetus. There's a rumor going around that Pink is pregnant. But her rep says, "Pink is not expecting."

You've probably heard about CONSTANCE MCMILLEN. She's the kid who inadvertently caused a major dustup in Mississippi just because she wanted her school to let her take her girlfriend to prom. (The school said NO.)

Well, GREEN DAY has just decided to sponsor a NEW prom for her, which they're calling a, "second-chance" prom. And they're hoping the move will inspire a greater change.

Singer BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG says, quote, "We were talking about it...and I remember [bassist] Mike [Dirnt] said, 'Why don't we just put on the prom?' and I was like, 'That's a great idea. Why not?'"

Mike says, "My high school was a little more open-minded. There were a lot of girls dressed in tuxedoes showing up for the prom. I didn't live in Mississippi, though. Sometimes you've got to force change."

The "second-chance" prom...which will also be co-sponsored by LANCE BASS and sexy, girl-loving "Iron Chef" star CAT CORA...will take place May 8th in Tupelo, Mississippi.

No other details about the prom have been revealed...such as who else will be invited, or if any of sponsors will be making an appearance.

If Billie Joe is thinking about going, it'd be a new experience for him. He says he's never been to a high school prom.

"Price Is Right" host and hometown guy DREW CAREY will star in an upcoming show for CBS called "WTF!", which...contrary to what you might be thinking...stands for "Wow, That's Funny!"

It's a hidden camera show in which Drew and other comedians spring elaborate pranks on unsuspecting people.

For example, Drew and his team will transform a random truck stop into a five-star restaurant...and film all the hilarity that ensues when the truckers come in expecting quick, cheap food. (There's no word when it might premiere.)

In case you didn't know, April is STD Awareness Month. In order to make you more "aware," here are some stats on sexually transmitted diseases, courtesy of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Check it out:

According to the CDC, there are 19 MILLION new STD cases every year. Nearly HALF of them involve young people between the ages of 15 and 24.

In 2008, which is the most recent data available, there were 1.5 MILLION new cases of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. That makes them the two most commonly reported infectious diseases in the United States.

Even though blacks make up just 12% of the total population, they account for almost HALF of all Chlamydia and Syphilis cases, and more than 70% of all reported Gonorrhea cases.

They also account for nearly HALF of all new HIV infections.

And the CDC estimates that undiagnosed and untreated STDs like Hepatitis B and Human Papillomavirus, or HPV, cause more than 24,000 women every year to become infertile.

This survey took place in Australia, but I have no reason to think the results would be any different here...

According to a new survey, 40% of men and 33% of women say they want SEX every day.

Which is actually too bad, considering ONE in FOUR women has sex just once a week. And ONE in FIVE gets drilled just once a month.

As for "getting in the mood"...66% of women and HALF of all men say that dancing turns them on more than any other activity.

TWO in THREE men and women say they're open to watching porno and engaging in role-play to spice things up.

Meanwhile, 38% of women say they want more foreplay.

And 35% of men want their girl to initiate sex more often.

Next month's issue of "Esquire" magazine includes something called the Survey of American Women. Here's a quick look at some of its findings:

29% of women make more money than their husband or boyfriend.
69% say they would never have plastic surgery, and 79% are happy with the size of their cans.
35% know how to change the oil in their car.
42% have been to a strip club.
89% believe in evolution.
And another 89% think gay marriage should be legal.
29% of women think HILLARY CLINTON is the most admirable woman in America. 19% think it's MICHELLE OBAMA, while just 3% vote SARAH PALIN.
Just 10% of women say they're more likely to vote for a candidate because she's a woman.

71% know that CHARLIE WEIS is the former football coach at Notre Dame, but 10% think he's the starting forward for the Cleveland Cavaliers. (WHAT!? LOL)

71% of women say it's not okay to use your sexuality to get ahead at work.
42% tend to give it up to a man in three or fewer dates.
24% admit they've had an affair, while 49% say they've been cheated on.
14% of women pleasure themselves every day. But just as many say they never do.
30% of women say they love GIVING oral favors, while 5% refuse to do it. And 10% say they don't like RECEIVING oral favors.
And finally, 57% of women say they always have safe sex, while 7% say they never do.

RYAN SEACREST recently revealed that CRYSTAL BOWERSOX almost quit "American Idol" a few weeks ago, but Ryan says he caught her in the nick of time, and had a deep conversation with her to talk her out of it. At least, that's how the story ORIGINALLY went.

BUT, Crystal now says she DID have a talk with Ryan...but she was never seriously considering leaving the show. And she also insinuates that she isn't thrilled that the conversation became public.

She tells E! Online (who in their initial story called Ryan "the knight in shining armour"...give me a F**KING BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!) "I never intended on quitting. None of that [was true]. We had a conversation, but it definitely didn't go down the way that it has been portrayed as. We had a simple, civil conversation. Ryan gave me great advice. And I highly respect him."

For what it's worth, KATELYN EPPERLY, one of this year's Top 24 finalists said Crystal sent her a text saying, "I'm fine. Betrayed by Seacrest!"

OH SNAP!!!! DOWN WITH RYAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HILLARY SCOTT literally has to LIVE with two guys...bandmates CHARLES KELLEY ("Amazing" JOSH KELLEY's brother) and DAVE HAYWOOD...every time LADY ANTEBELLUM'S tour bus hits the road.

But that's okay with her, because there's less drama bunking with guys than with chicks. She tells "Us Weekly", "It's definitely way less drama than a band full of girls. And (the guys) take care of me. But you just have to pick your battles."

Speaking of the road, it sounds like Hillary's not doing a lot of hooking-up in the back of the bus...or wherever.

She says, "It gets lonely out here, but you can't really focus on that, because you'll drive yourself crazy. And a really fun job can turn into a really lonely one if you dwell on it."

Thursday? 80's. Last night? Upper 30's. Ahhhh, it's April in Northeast Ohio.

So I went to the TRIBE home opener on Monday afternoon at The Jake/Progressive Field. My first time ever for a home opener. And after the game, in which we lost to the Rangers, it sure appeared we were going to be in for a long season. Highlights of the game? Sandy Alomar introduced as a new 1st base coach. Of course he was our all-star catcher during the exciting, winning seasons in the mid 90's. The other? Mike Holmgren shown on the scoreboard, and the mini dawg pound came out to show our Browns enthusiam. Yep, there is no doubt Cleveland is a football town.

But here we are, Saturday morning, and the Tribe has 2 wins in a row, and both games, the starting pitcher went a complete game. With how AWFUL the bullpen has performed, this is a VERY GOOD thing!!!

But, enough about baseball, let's get into golf, shall we?

Now of course, Tiger didn't win the Masters. And I'm not really concerned with the golf aspect of it anyway. Did you hear someone was flying banners over the course last weekend with slams on Mr. Woods? Apparently there was one more that never flew. Honest. It read: "Tiger -- Still on for the foursome? -- Jesse James".

In news that's being described with words like "surprising," "shocking" and similar open-mouthed adjectives, CONAN O'BRIEN has announced plans to resume his late-night comedy career on TBS!!!

Monday, Conan posted a Twitter message...saying, "The good news: I will be doing a show on TBS starting in November! The bad news: I'll be playing Rudy on the all new 'Cosby Show'."

He later added, "In three months I've gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I'm headed to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly."

His new show...which is still untitled...will run from 11:00 P.M. to midnight, Monday through Thursday. It will take the place of GEORGE LOPEZ'S talk show, "Lopez Tonight", which will be bumped to midnight. TBS will continue to air movies on Friday nights.

Obviously, this situation brings up a lot of parallels to the NBC Late-Night Mess...when Conan refused to bump "The Tonight Show" back to midnight to make room for JAY LENO'S return to late-night.

But Conan isn't Leno-ing George.
Conan's manager, Gavin Polone, said, quote, "That sounded very similar to [what happened at NBC]. Conan said, 'We're not putting ourselves in the position of shoving somebody out of his show.'"

TBS boss Steve Koonin made his initial pitch to Conan less than two weeks ago...but only after getting George's blessing first.

Then, George called Conan personally to invite him on board. Polone said, quote, "It really was George who made this happen." At that point, negotiations reportedly progressed very quickly.

To make sure there's no doubt about how he feels, George released the following statement yesterday, "I can't think of anything better than doing my show with Conan as my lead-in. It's the beginning of a new era in late-night comedy."

There's no specific debut date yet, aside from it happening sometime in November.

CONAN O'BRIEN'S deal with TBS was particularly surprising because it seemed inevitable that he'd end up at Fox.

There isn't any official word on why that didn't work out...but here's the UNOFFICIAL word, from various sources.

The consensus seems to be that there was just too much red tape in the Fox negotiations...involving their local affiliates, who were making good money airing syndicated sitcoms at 11:00 P.M.

Some affiliates were stalling talks because they were unsure if they wanted to take the risk, while others had existing contracts with syndication, which would prevent them from airing Conan's least at 11:00 P.M....for several years.

Those affiliates could've faced lawsuits if they breached those deals. MTV News reports that only 60% of Fox's channels would be able to air a Conan show this fall. And that couldn't have been too appealing to Conan's people.

TBS could be his best landing spot. On TBS, GEORGE LOPEZ is drawing a diverse audience with a median age of 33, which is MUCH younger than the other late-night shows.

The two-hour SERIES finale of "Lost" ...which will air from 9:00 to 11:00 P.M. on May 23rd...will be preceded by a two-hour "Lost" special from 7:00 to 9:00 P.M.

And afterwards, JIMMY KIMMEL will host a comedy special called "Lost: After the Final Rose". So, ABC will have at least five hours of "Lost"-related programming on that night.

Obviously I won't begin to debate politics with you, but here's one of the hidden little items in the recently passed healthcare bill:
On page 1,239, it requires all companies with more than 50 workers to provide a place, quote, "other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view...which may be used by an employee to express BREAST MILK."

That's right...the new health care bill forces employers to provide a private room where new mothers can squeeze milk out of their cans.

...that's the awards show that happens around the same time as the Oscars and hands out the WORST awards, will be TELEVISED for the first time next year! Feb 26 it goes down. No word on the channel.

MTV is developing a "Jersey Shore" spin-off called "Wicked Summer", which will take place in Boston. As far as we know, it won't feature any "Jersey Shore" cast members.

A casting director for the show says, "We're giving Massachusetts the chance to show the world why Bay Staters have got the hottest girls and proudly buff guys who believe in God, family, politics, sports, beer and partying!"

Production on the first season will begin in July. No premiere date has been set.

...and I know what you're probably thinking. I probably mean something BESIDES taking off their clothes. But I DON'T! Kara and Colbie both posed NUDE for the May issue of Allure magazine! Check out the pics....


Yum! Guys, you're welcome (and ladies too!)

Ever feel like you spend FAR too much eating out? Or on fast food in particular? This won't make you feel better...The markup on fries is around 500%. The markup on soft drinks is about 1,200%.

GREETINGS! How was your week? Fantastic I hope! Mine was a little less than stellar...spent a few days side-lined with sickness...feeling 110% better now, but still sounding kinda stuffed up...gotta love it!

We had ANOTHER Q92 NEXT BIG THING show on Thursday, inside due to rain and cold, at The Pub w/ DAN BLACK. Next one, April 29th...TRAVIE MCCOY and WE THE KINGS!!!! Listen all this weekend to win tickets, which is the ONLY way you can get in!

Here's some shtuff.......

The "American Pie" franchise is getting a complete reboot...11 years after it debuted.

Universal has been making mediocre, low-budget, straight-to-DVD movies under the "American Pie" banner for several years now, none of them are ever any good...

The guys who wrote the two "Harold and Kumar" movies have signed on to write the "American Pie" relaunch.

The producers of the new "American Pie" say they're hoping to get all of the original actors to come back. Which should at least make it entertaining again!

According to a new study from the University of Iowa, ONE in FIVE people are fortunate enough to have had a "friends with benefits" relationship at some point. Which is pretty much the goal of nearly every single man.

But the downside is that "friends with benefits" are more likely to catch an STD.

The logic is that "friends with benefits" are less likely to be they're more likely to contract and spread STDs.

Put another way, women who have a "friend with benefits" are 44% more likely NOT to be monogamous, and men who have a "friend with benefits" are 25% more likely NOT to be monogamous. (Hear that? Women are bigger hoochies)

As for couples, 17% of men and 5% of women admit they've cheated on their partner. And 8% of men and 17% of women say they've been faithful, but their partner cheated on them.

Overall, ONE in TEN couples say neither of them has been monogamous in their relationship.
And in other sexual-related randomness, the study also found that couples are less likely to cheat if they get along with each other's parents.

That probably goes without saying. But every year, a group called the CQ Press releases something called the Crime Rankings Index. Basically, they look at reported crime rates in six categories: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft. Then they rank them by state.

The five states with the most crime are:
#1.) Nevada. This is their seventh straight year at the top of the list.
#2.) New Mexico
#3.) Louisiana
#4.) South Carolina
#5.) Tennessee

And the five states with the least crime are:
#1.) New Hampshire
#2.) Vermont
#3.) North Dakota
#4.) Maine
#5.) Idaho

...which of course is because....THEY ARE SMALL...and THERE ARE NO PEOPLE in them!!

Overall, the worst state for ASSAULT is...South Carolina.
The worst state for RAPE is...Alaska.
And the worst state for MURDER is...Louisiana.

...with her dogs! Cute little guys, aren't they? And Mariah of course, she's a hottie.

Now it's time to review some highlights of the 2010 "Maxim" magazine sex survey:

-47% of women admit to "sexting," and 70% admit they've hacked into their man's email account to make sure he wasn't cheating.

-70% of women say they've slept with ten or fewer guys.

-17% of women have had sex with a guy whose name they didn't know. And 26% slept with a guy they knew for less than five hours.

-ONE in FOUR women say they love...not just like, oral favors.

-11% of women have slept with their boss at some point, and 6% have slept with a subordinate at work.

-17% have done it with a guy they knew was married.

-If they had the chance, and it was guaranteed their guy would never find out, 38% of women say they'd have sex with their, quote, "fantasy crush."

-ONE in THREE women have no problem going all the way on a first date with a guy they really like.

-31% of women have had sex with TWO or more men in one day. And 1.5% have done the nasty with more than THREE guys in a day. When you up the timeframe to a week, 17% have done it with three or more guys.

-ONE in THREE women say they never have, and never will, try backdoor relations.

-More than TWO-THIRDS of women have never had a threesome. As for the rest of them...17% did it with two girls and one guy, 11% did it with two guys and one girl, and 3% did it with THREE GIRLS. (!!!)

-ONE in THREE women think the "average guy" should have sex with six to ten women before settling down. 2% think he should be a virgin when he gets married. 1% thinks he should have sex with 40 or more women before getting married.

-Overall, 7% of women say a guy's muscle tone and fitness isn't important to them at all.
ONLY 7%!!!

I love this BIEBER billboard, RIGHT ABOVE a strip club out in LA...

LIL WAYNE'S ex-wife, ANTONIA "TOYA" CARTER, says that Wayne has an interesting job at Rikers Island prison.

She says, "They got him on suicide watch for other prisoners. He watches the crazy prisoners and makes sure they don't kill themselves. He likes the job even though they don't pay him much."

Toya added that Wayne is, quote, "doing OK...[and] getting along with everybody."

Have you seen this site? Think TFLN, but of the pic variety!

Now it's time to recognize our Idiot Criminal of the Day...19-year-old Tasha Cantrell of Fort Walton Beach, Florida (in the state's panhandle, about 40 miles east of Pensacola).

Early Monday morning, Tasha was riding in a car when her unidentified friend was pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence.

A tow truck was called to impound the car, leaving Tasha without a ride home. So she asked one of the cops to give her a lift, which they did.

But while she was riding in the back of the cop car, Tasha pulled out a can of Steel Reserve malt liquor and cracked it open.

According to the police report, "When I opened the rear passenger door, I observed Cantrell attempting to hide the can between her legs. I retrieved this can and noticed it was Steel Reserve Beer."

At which point the cop drove Tasha to the police station, and arrested her for underage drinking. Photobucket

She looks QUITE proud in her mugshot! Moron!

RIHANNA is finally admitting what everyone already figured out months ago: She and L.A. Dodger MATT KEMP are dating.

Yesterday morning on a California radio show, she said, "He's my boyfriend."

She did NOT, however, confirm recent rumors that they're engaged. But it doesn't sound like they are. She added, "It's new and it's fun. It's nothing too serious.

"I don't want anything that's going to take up so much of my energy and time right now in a bad way. I just want to have fun, and that's what it's about."

Rihanna does have a wedding coming up...that of KATY PERRY and British comedian RUSSELL BRAND. Rihanna is planning the bachelorette party.

She said, "[Katy] put that on me last week. Now I have to come up with something cool, 'cuz she's getting married in India. So I'm like, 'Okay now what do I do to match that for a bachelorette party?'"

I have no idea why it's 2010 and we're following AVRIL LAVIGNE, but that we are...
E! Online says that Avril, BRODY JENNER and Avril's ex-husband, DERYCK WHIBLEY, were all out on the town together in Hollywood on Wednesday night.

Everybody seemed to be friends...although Deryck did leave by himself...while Avril and Brody left together. And then....


Premiere is JULY 29th

ENJOY your weekend! I've been a lifelong Tribe fan and will FINALLY go to my first opening day Monday. GO TRIBE!!!

Saturday, April 3, 2010


Well HELLO 80+ degrees!!! Now if you're blinded by something abnormally bright lately, don't be alarmed. It's just your fellow Ohioans wearing SHORTS for the first time in MONTHS!

Spent the day in Cleveland on Thursday, enjoying the wonderful weather and a great concert as well. DAUGHTRY and LIFEHOUSE sold out the CSU Wolstein Center! A great show, and very cool to have Jason Wade join Daughtry for "Home" in their encore. We sent a ton of listeners to a private Lifehouse acoustic performance and meet & greet that afternoon, as well as our VIP Daughtry winner who got to meet Chris, go to the soundcheck, AND sit in the front row!!

I was lucky enough to get into the Lifehouse session, check out some pics on our facebook page:

Since we're playing her song with WE THE KINGS, "We'll Be A Dream"...
DEMI LOVATO is still gushing about her relationship with JOE JONAS. She says, "It's amazing! It's a great feeling! When you're in love, you want the world to know! They call us 'Jemi', which I think is pretty funny."

Demi says she doesn't even mind being stopped on the street and asked about it..."It's really weird, because random strangers will be like, 'How's Joe?' And I'm just like, 'What?' But it's fun. It's really special, and we're having a good time."

Meanwhile, Demi has been busy this week shooting a guest spot on "Grey's Anatomy". She'll play a patient who's being treated for possible schizophrenia. The episode will air sometime in May.

KATY PERRY has a new album coming out this summer...and she told MTV News, "It's a summer record. It's what I said I wanted earlier. We nailed it: It's roller-skating! It's '90s! It's Ace of Base! It's Cyndi Lauper! It's like all these colors and more.

"It's going to be fun. It's going to be one of those records that is everybody's favorite guilty pleasure." No specific release date has been announced yet.

I was under the impression that if a grown woman has a collection of STUFFED ANIMALS, it means she's a little nuts. But apparently I was wrong.
At least that's according to a website called, which ran an article recently explaining exactly what you can tell about a woman's personality from her stuffed animals. Check it out:

#1.) Classic teddy bear: She's old-fashioned, down-to-earth and refined. She probably enjoys the outdoors, and will get along with your mother.

#2.) Raggedy, old stuffed animals: Chances are she's had the same stuffed animal since she was a baby, which means she's sentimental and tenderhearted.

#3.) Gigantic carnival toys: An ex-boyfriend probably won them for her. The fact that she still has them lying around...even though the relationship ended years ago...means she may be high-maintenance or demanding.

#4.) Unicorns and ponies: She's a girly-girl, and she's probably got a few Hello Kitty dolls stashed away somewhere.

#5.) Porcelain dolls: They're much more expensive than stuffed animals, so it might mean she comes from money. But it also might mean she's going to kill you in your sleep because...let's face it...porcelain dolls are creepy.

#6.) No stuffed animals at all: She's a practical, no-frills kind of woman. Treat her right and hang on for dear life, because these girls are extremely rare. Figures.

Next month, Facebook will unveil a new feature allowing website publishers to add a "Like" button to material on their website.

The idea is to allow Facebook users to "Like" any piece of content...whether it's a video, a news story, or a photo...directly at the source.

For example, let's say you've just watched an amazing video on YouTube of...whatever. If YouTube's operators choose to take part, you can "Like" the video right there, and it will show up on your Facebook profile page.

According to a tech expert with a website called, quote, "Facebook would essentially be stamping its brand on the entire Web. It would also be in a better position to take on Google with an ad network of its own."

It's no secret that women love shoes. But I'm starting to think that maybe...just maybe...a large portion of American women have veered into the realm of UNHEALTHY SHOE OBSESSION.

According to a recent study, 63% of men own FEWER than 11 pairs of shoes.
Meanwhile, FOUR in FIVE women own MORE than 11 pairs of shoes, and TWO in FIVE (or 40%) own more than 50 pairs.

That's compared to just 4% of men who own more than 50 pairs of shoes.

Overall, the average American woman owns 27 pairs of shoes.

EUREKA! Now we're talkin'! American Apparel held a search for the BEST BOTTOM!
Check 'em out!
