This is my 100th blog post! I counted!
......ok, it tells me when I login. Shutup.

And sorry there was none yesterday...I actually typed one or two stories, but then I stopped....so, you get extra extra today!

So how did this even come to be? And where does the name come from?
Back when myspace was cool, I used to every now and then post a blog called a 'random' since everyone has always told me I'm one of the most random, off-the-wall people they've met. It was a bit different back in those days, as I didn't really talk too much of what was going on with the music stars and celebs, as it was just random thoughts on my mind.

And I'm actually gonna give you a taste of that today!

A close friend of mine and I have been talking lately about 'signs'...she's convinced that all these things that are happening are signs of things to come. I'm not sure I believe it, but I do believe that everything happens for a reason, so...

There's a sign at a business on Route 62, if you're going west, its about 1/4 miles before BP/Middlebranch Rd and it says "free fees"...tell me HOW that makes any sense?! Quit letting the interns update the sign!

I was out and about this morning, listening to The DeLuca Show of course...sometimes you really don't think about the lyrics to the songs...but it's amazing how so many songs I've heard today are relating to my life right now. As one of our music promos earlier this year said (and I may actually bring back here very soon), "music captures a moment...the time...the place...the feeling. The soundtrack to our lives."

Speaking of DeLuca, I think he's very proud of the fact that you can go see him at this year's Stark County Fair. And you can even eat him!
....see, there's a steer named DeLuca in the fair this year. It's owner lives in Louisville. You can even bid on him tomorrow night at 6pm in the beef barn! LOL

And continuing to tie it all together with food...apparently the trend is feeding me. Do I look malnurished to you? Seriously!! Katie and Ariel both want me to visit them where they work (at restaurants), Ashley wants to bring me pepperoni rolls (which she did once but someone at work ATE THEM...not too pleased about that...), Monica wants to bake me cookies....

Now that I think about it, I'm sure not complaining about it!

I love the promo we're running for our Dirty Heads show. I mean, I kind of have to love it. I did write it and produce it! Our voice guy ("BC" is his name) sounds like he had a lot of fun with it. Some of his outtakes are quite humorous...I wish we could work more of them in on the air. I'm actually going to produce a few "day in the life" with him...just from him telling random stories during VO sessions. Quite funny!

I had a ridiculous dream last night. Someone stabbed me. For real. But I lived! Oh, and the guy who stabbed me DIDN'T GO TO JAIL...and we ran into eachother and people were like trying to hold him back from getting to me.....a little frightening I suppose!

September, starts tomorrow, and it's NATIONAL BREAKFAST MONTH! mmmm, delish!

That's really all I've got on my brain today. I've cleared my head over the past few days and am feeling good.......let's delve into the real reasons you came here!

LADY GAGA went to high school with PARIS HILTON. But according to Gaga, that's where the comparisons end. She says, "I don't see Paris as an artist.

"I was the smart, studious theater and music student. I didn't hang out with all the popular blonde girls. I wasn't blonde really until I was 20 years old."

I doubt that IT'S ON between Paris and Gaga now. Because I can't imagine Gaga said anything here that Paris would disagree with. I mean, if Paris actually does believe she's an artist, she needs a SERIOUS reality check.

She probably does.

USHER'S marriage to TAMEKA FOSTER didn't survive. But he doesn't regret it.
He says, "I appreciate the relationship for what it was. Even though it didn't work out, I'm glad we got together. I love her as the mother of my children; we just couldn't be married."

Usher says the relationship started going south after the birth of their second child, when they started disagreeing on everything from parenting style to Usher's busy schedule.

He says, "We're two different people, and we have two different goals. It just was never going to work out 100%."
Usher and Tameka have two kids . . . 2-year-old Usher the 5th and 1-year-old Naviyd.

You know that saying that there's somebody out there for everyone? I now believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that it's true...because there's a guy who's willing to marry SNOOKI from "Jersey Shore".

Snooki's boyfriend, JEFF MIRANDA, has PROPOSED. But he didn't do it in person. He got down on one knee on the cover of "Steppin' Out" magazine. And he was shirtless, not surprisingly. Looksie...


Jeff tells the magazine, "I want us to be together forever. I could see us having children. I want to pop the question to her.

"If we got married we would be the best parents around. She's so loving and puts everyone else before herself. She'll be a great mother."


Anyway. Jeff admits that his proposal will take Snooki by surprise, but he says, "Once she deals with the shock I think she'll say yes. I really do. In fact, I know she'll say yes."

Oh, and before you ask, Jeff KNOWS you think he's just doing this for his own publicity...but he swears he's not. And no one knows what Snooki's response is yet.

...with a 'near' nip-slip!

Hollywood has had some bad ideas lately...but what I'm about to tell you could very well be one of the WORST. If it ever actually makes it to the screen, that is. And for the love of God, I hope it DOESN'T!

JUSTIN BIEBER wants to remake "Grease"...with MILEY CYRUS as his leading lady. (Excuse me...hurl time..................) He also suggested that SUSAN BOYLE could play the principal.

He says, "That would be a lot of fun. It's been talked about a lot over the years, but it would be awesome to play Danny."

As for Miley, he says, "She can sing, dance and act."

Hey, he got 2 out of 3 I suppose. I think we all know she can't sing.

Movie attendance in the U.S. was down this summer...to its lowest point in five years. And yet revenue hit an ALL-TIME HIGH.

The number of tickets sold through this coming weekend is expected to be around 552 million. (It was 563.2 million in 2005.)

But revenues will be around $4.35 billion...which is $100 million more than the record that was set last year. (!!!)
You know what this means, right? Less people are going to the movies...probably because ticket prices are so high...But movies are banking more cash than ever, because ticket prices keep getting jacked up!

It sounds like KID ROCK wants to be taken a little more seriously on his upcoming album, "Born Free", which he says is about the crapification of his hometown.

He says, "The catalyst for this record was Detroit, and my thoughts on the world through the lens of Detroit. Watching everything go downhill over the past few years, the economy, the loss of jobs everywhere...

"I wanted to make a record that reflected the times but that still had soul."

A press release for the album says that it'll be, "transformational." It insists that Kid will still be his edgy self, but that he's not doing the "rap-metal" thing on this disc. In fact, it even notes, quote: "There isn't even a parental warning sticker."

"Born Free" features collaborations with Bob Seger, T.I., Sheryl Crow...plus country stars Martina McBride, Zac Brown and Trace Adkins.

And the guest musicians include Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Los Lobos guitarist and singer David Hidalgo, and Chavez guitarist Matt Sweeney.

"Born Free" is scheduled to hit stores on November 16th.

Have you heard the latest Wendy's commercial on Q92? You should, my voice is on it! Regardless, they talk about replacing the word "money" with bacon. Hence the headline above. Anyway, Everyone out there who thinks the FIVE-SECOND RULE is ridiculous...and that once food hits the floor, it's garbage...you now have a crusader on your side.

He is name is Derron Cooke of Hartford, Connecticut, and he's a 25-year-old who works at Wendy's. On Friday afternoon, he pulled a KNIFE (!!!) on one of his co-workers and threatened his life.

But according to Derron...he should be APPLAUDED. Because HE says the reason he pulled the knife is because the guy had dropped some bacon on the floor...and still wanted to serve it to customers.


Lieutenant Stephen Estes of the West Hartford police says, "According to [Derron], his purposes were altruistic. He wanted the public to get good bacon."

The co-worker, whose name hasn't been released, disagrees. He says that he was cooking some chicken and Derron came over and criticized his technique. After they argued, Derron pulled the knife.

Whether it was the bacon or the chicken, Derron was arrested and has been charged with attempted second-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, threatening, and breach of peace.

Stark County Fair opens TODAY thru Labor Day at the fairgrounds in Canton...go see DELUCA THE STEER! He's in the beef barn. Admission is free before Noon today, Wednesday and Thursday! Maybe head over for lunch? I'm probably going to do that myself!

For whatever reason, DRAKE and NICKI MINAJ both announced on twitter that they'd, quote, "tied the knot." But they didn't.

Both their reps have denied that they're married...and said it was a joke. They HAVE been dating for the past few months though, if you want to believe that.

I had NO IDEA that offices around this country are really just fronts for GIANT ORGIES.

According to a new study by the Center for Work-Life Policy, an ENORMOUSLY HIGH number of women admit that they've had relations with their boss. How many women? Try 15%...or more than one out of every seven.

What that means: At work today, take a look at seven of your female co-workers. Statistically, one of them has done your boss. Hmmmmmmmmmm...........

And it works out doubly well for them...not only do they get themselves stimulated, but they get PROMOTED. Of the women who've had an affair with their boss, 37% say it gave them a career boost.

There is a downside, of course. 61% of all men and 70% of all women said they'd instantly lose ALL respect for a boss who was involved in an affair with a co-worker.

60% of men and 65% of women would suspect that the lower-ranking person in the affair was trading sexual favors for salary hikes and better work assignments.

And 39% of men and 37% of women say the affair would probably affect the productivity of the entire team.

Actually it's a Back In The Day weekend on Q92! I'm in for Mo tonight, 7-Mid and of course all weekend so hit me with the good stuff from the 90's and the 2000's and I'll play it for ya. Also more AUBURN tix all weekend!

Don't forget to link up to the facebook:
Updates daily, including this here blog! Lots and lots of good stuff this week, scroll down and check out some of it!

Lots of good shtuff for FRIDAY too...here it comes

Yesterday, we heard that there was a picture of MILEY CYRUS straddling co-star Adam Sevani on the set of their movie, "LOL: Laughing Out Loud" in Detroit. And today, we have that picture. Here that is...


A so-called "source" says it was Miley who ended the relationship with her last co-star, LIAM HEMSWORTH. But NOT because of Adam.

Supposedly, there's nothing going on between Miley and Adam. The source says, "This is nothing more than two kids joking around. Nothing more."

We've got more evidence today that MARIAH CAREY is pregnant. She issued the following statement yesterday..."I appreciate everyone's well wishes. But I am very superstitious. When the time is right, everyone will know."

Ya know. Cause everyone doesn't ALREADY know...

Btw, here's the pic from yesterday of her rockin' the maternity gear!


We heard a RUMOR earlier this week that JOHN MAYER and JENNIFER ANISTON were secretly dating again.
Then yesterday, the Huffington Post website posted a story that made it seem even more likely.

They said that during a show in Hollywood last Sunday, John told the audience, "I believe in second chances! You might have been a pain in the ass the last time around, but you can still start over again from home base.

"Next time you get a text from the one you love just text back 'come over'...no matter what happened in the past. If you really love someone, just tell them and be with them."

Meanwhile, a so-called "witness" said that a woman who LOOKED like Jennifer was standing just off-stage, and John kept, "looking, smiling, smirking and winking at her...especially during [the song] 'I Don't Trust Myself With Loving You'."


But MTV says that during a gig on Tuesday night in Irvine, California, John told the crowd, quote, "I'm completely single"...and then went on to describe for them his daily single-guy ritual of watching naughty videos on the Internet.

And yesterday, John wrote a blog BLASTING the Huffington Post...because they try to be a legit news website, so they should be above this sort of gossip-mongering.

He said, "The reason I'm calling you out instead of all the other magazines that make stories up out of thin air is that 'In Touch' and 'Star Magazine' aren't concurrently writing pieces about Pat Tillman or WikiLeaks.

"Those other rags know who they are, and even if they're obnoxious, I'd rather have to live with them because they (and the rest of the world) know where they stand, which doesn't make them one tenth as dangerous as you are.

"You're a stripper wearing reading glasses. Or maybe you're an insolvent law student willing to dance for a few extra dollars. Either way, it's uncomfortable to watch you try to wrap yourself around a pole when you have that C-Span scar."

There's more to John's rant. If you care to read it, its at this link:

One of my favorite shows is THAT 70's SHOW, so I have to mention this. LISA ROBIN KELLY...who played Laurie Forman, Eric's hot & whorey older sister, was busted for DUI in North Carolina last weekend. And that's basically all we know.

Now let me remind you of what she looked like from the show...


And now her mugshot...


YIKES!!!!!!! I'm gonna pass...

If JASON MRAZ'S pattern of releasing a new album every three years holds, he'll put out a new album next year. But this time he's thinking about prepping TWO albums at the same time because he has so much new material.

He says, "I've got two very different-sounding albums. If I cut the material in half, I've got something that's fresh for the summer, ready for people to dance to, and I've got something else that's a little different, a little more lush and tender."

There's no word on when the album or albums could be out. Jason merely says, "My goal is to have everything wrapped up in early November and at the early part of 2011 hit the road and start visiting all the countries again."

T.I. taped an episode of VH1's "Storytellers" on Tuesday at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. It'll air on December 10th.

As usual for this sort of thing, T.I. spent some time talking in-between songs. He talked about the difficulty he had dealing with his dad's death...and how much he enjoys being a father himself. T.I. has five kids already...and he's only 29 years old. He's slowing down a little though. He had three kids before he was 21.

T.I. also discussed his past as a drug dealer...and his recent time behind bars. And there were also some less interesting topics, like what he hopes to accomplish in hip-hop...and how he hopes his acting career will flourish.

Well ok, that might interest you. But prolly not as much as baby mama drama...

STARK COUNTY FAIR is next week, CANFIELD FAIR as well...this weekend is the Randolph Fair. So it's a good time to talk about fair food!!
These days, every state fair features fried food that absolutely boggles the mind. Still...when I want to find the TRUE innovators of deep frying, I look to Texas.

The State Fair of Texas has announced the finalists for its annual Big Tex Choice Awards...which are given to the best tasting and most creative new foods from the fair each year. This year, all eight finalists are deep fried! Here they are...

Deep fried S'mores Pop Tart. A S'mores Pop Tart covered in batter and fried.

Deep fried frozen margarita. Funnel cake batter is mixed with a margarita, then deep fried and covered with a lemon/lime mixture. Served in a salt-rimmed glass.

Fried club salad. A 12-inch spinach wrap with ham, chicken, lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, cheddar and bacon inside is deep fried. Then it's topped with fried sourdough croutons on a stick and served with dressing.

Fried beer. A beer-filled pretzel pouch is deep fried.

Fried chocolate. A white chocolate candy bar and cherry are stuffed in a brownie, dipped in chocolate cake batter and deep fried.

Texas fried caviar. It's not real caviar. Black-eyed peas are deep fried and laced with special spices.

Texas fried Frito pie. Chili and cheddar are encased in a giant corn chip. Then it's battered and fried.

Fried lemonade. A pastry is made with Country Time lemonade, then fried.

The winners of the award will be announced Labor Day weekend.

Gonna be a GREAT weekend, enjoy it!

Thursday, August 26, 2010


Ahhh good morning. Let me just tell you, sometimes if you only knew what was happening 'behind the curtain' of the radio station....its been a chaotic few days but hopefully normalcy is returning.
I'll be in tomorrow night for Mo, 7-Midnight, Back In The Day weekend style.
Here's some shtuff...

BENJI and JOEL MADDEN of GOOD CHARLOTTE have plans to unveil a limited edition women’s clothing line called Mad Picks at select Macy’s stores. The Madden brothers will also perform free concerts on Saturdays in September and October in Philadelphia; Rosedale, Minnesota; Miami; Sacramento and Chicago.

The new album, “Cardiology,” comes out November 2. Be listening for the first track "Like It's Her Birthday" on Q92!

This is me speaking on behalf of the general population. Do you care about Lindsay Lohan? I bet you don't. And I really don't anymore either. So, this might very well be the last time I report on her for awhile.
At LINDSAY LOHAN'S hearing yesterday, Judge Elden Fox laid out the conditions for her outpatient treatment.

Lindsay wasn't there personally, but her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, told reporters what's expected of Lindsay. Between now and a progress hearing on November 1st, Lindsay has to remain in California, and keep Los Angeles as her primary residence.

She also has to undergo psychiatric treatment AT LEAST four times a week.

She has to attend some kind of dependency meeting...like Alcohol Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous...at least five times a week.

She must contact a chemical dependency counselor at least SEVEN times a week.

She has to attend behavioral therapy twice a week.

And she will be randomly tested for drugs and alcohol twice a week. And she's not allowed to miss a single test.

Lindsay's attorney is required to provide statements twice a week affirming that Lindsay is meeting her requirements. If Lindsay flakes on ANY of these terms, she gets sent back to the pen for 30 days. (Or 14 days. However long they feel like keeping her.)

Holley told reporters, "[Lindsay] is very serious about her sobriety. She looks forward to proving to the court that she is serious. She has learned her lesson and is going to move forward in a positive way."

TIMBALAND would like to set the record straight: He did NOT go off to commit SUICIDE after learning that someone had stolen a $2 million watch from his home.

Here's what happened: Early Tuesday evening, Timbaland's family members called 911, because they couldn't find him...and they were worried he would kill himself.

His mother-in-law told the 911 operator that he'd driven off...and sent them a text saying that he was, quote, "tired of the stress." He also mentioned that he was, quote, "near a cliff in the canyons." (This is near Malibu, California.)

The authorities ended up finding Timbaland, and they escorted him back home.

But yesterday, Timbaland gave an interview in which he DENIED that he was suicidal, and said that everyone was overreacting. And in talking about it, it's clear that he was pretty upset over the whole thing.

Timbaland said, "I don't even know what happened, to be honest. […] I don't know what people are talking about. Why would I commit suicide?"

He also denied that he had a $2 million WATCH stolen...but he said "something" WAS stolen, and he said that he was upset about it, but not THAT upset about it.

"People steal from me all the time. […] Stuff did happen, it wasn't a watch it was something else. It's people that are close to you, you know. So only thing I did was take a drive and figure out how I'm gonna handle it. I wasn't talking, so I guess people got worried."

And they were REALLY worried.
An APB was sent out, and several squad cars and a HELICOPTER were out searching for him. And according to the police report, the authorities were under the impression that he'd taken some sort of "medication" before leaving the house.

Timbaland was NOT thrilled to hear about all this when the police found him. He said, "I snapped. I was like, 'Who would report something like that?'"

Neither MARIAH CAREY nor NICK CANNON will admit that Mariah is pregnant. But Mariah's candy coating does seem to be thickening lately. And she was spotted recently wearing a MATERNITY DRESS from a company called A Pea in the Pod.

Meanwhile, we heard yesterday (as I reported on my facebook) that Mariah WAS indeed preggers. Nick Cannon quickly said that was NOT true....but I think it is. Why they don't just come out and admit it, I have NO idea.....

A so-called "source" says Mariah is four months pregnant, and her rep says, "I spoke to Mariah from Brazil. She is very superstitious...and when the time is right for her and Nick to announce something, she will."

MILEY CYRUS and LIAM HEMSWORTH have broken up. Rumors to that effect started going around yesterday, and when RadarOnline.com contacted Liam, he told them, "It's true."

Liam and Miley started dating last August, after meeting on the set of "The Last Song". The breakup is said to be pretty recent. There's no word why they split, but the gossip is already starting to fly.

E! Online says there are supposedly some pictures of Miley in Detroit, on the set of her upcoming movie, "LOL: Laughing Out Loud".

And these pictures show Miley STRADDLING a guy who looks like her co-star in that flick, one Adam Sevani. He's 18.
Meanwhile, the "Star" tabloid claims that Liam hooked up with a 26-year-old chick named Katy earlier this month at the U.S. Open Surf Competition in Huntington Beach. (Liam is 20.)

Nobody's saying he actually cheated...but he supposedly partied with her and her friends, and left with her phone number.

And finally, E! Online says that Miley and Liam were already kind of on-and-off with each other. Sources say they've broken up and gotten back together a few times already without anyone finding out about it.

If you're sick and tired of vampires, I've got some really bad news for you: They're not going anywhere for a long, long time.

According to the "Hollywood Reporter", vampires have generated $7 BILLION in revenue since the first "Twilight" movie hit theaters in November of 2008. (That's LESS THAN TWO YEARS, for you non-math majors.)

That includes $3 billion from movies, $1.6 million from books and $1.2 billion from TV and DVDs.

ADAM SANDLER is going to play TWINS in an upcoming movie. But here's the catch: They'll be FRATERNAL twins...a man and a woman.

The movie is called "Jack and Jill". It's about a woman who goes to her twin brother's house for Thanksgiving and won't leave...thus putting a HILARIOUS strain on his home life.

KATIE HOLMES is in talks to play the brother's wife (if TOM CRUISE allows her to, of course)...and AL PACINO will play himself.

In a recent poll...conducted by Quinnipiac University (which is near New Haven, CT and my radio buddy Lisa G/Chloe went there and I have to wonder if they did wonderful, important, ground-breaking polls like this when she was in college...)...51% of New Jersey residents said they had an UNFAVORABLE opinion of "Jersey Shore".

11% said they had a FAVORABLE view on it...and the rest, 38%, are still UNDECIDED. (Which means they haven't seen it yet. There's no way you can watch an episode of "Jersey Shore" and NOT have an opinion on it.)

Meanwhile, 54% thought that "Jersey Shore" was actually BAD for New Jersey...20% said it was GOOD for the state...and 26% don't have a clue.

If there's one thing that's been true across every generation of teenagers since the beginning of time, it's this: Something instantly stops being cool once your parents like it.
For this current generation of teenagers, FACEBOOK has now reached that point.

According to a new survey, 16% of teenagers say they're planning to QUIT Facebook because one of their parents signed up.
Another 29% of teenagers say that they're planning on de-friending their parents on Facebook.

14% say that their parents haven't signed up, but they're going to quit Facebook anyway because it's filled with, "too many adults and older people."

Three-quarters of parents on Facebook say they check out their kids' profiles.
And mothers are MUCH more likely to join and check in on their kids than fathers.

It's ok. They can go back to Myspace now.

A new survey of more than 1,000 Americans in their twenties found that a SHOCKINGLY high number of them...28%, or more than one out of four...are currently living with their parents.

The survey ALSO found that 28% of 20-somethings described themselves as, quote, "perpetually single." It didn't show the overlap between those two groups...but I'd have to guess the two are at least SOMEWHAT connected to eachother.
Here are some of the other results from the survey...

38% of 20-somethings are currently in a relationship but not married. 19% are currently dating around, 13% are married, and 2% are divorced.

28% live with their parents, 28% live with their spouse...or with their boyfriend or girlfriend, 26% live with a roommate or roommates, and 18% live alone.

The average person moves five times during their 20s.
And the average person has SIX jobs during their 20s.

July was the 305th consecutive month where the average temperature worldwide was above average. The last time a month had a below-average temperature was February of 1985.

Here in the U.S., we just had the second-warmest July ever, and the warmest June of all time.

Louisville, Kentucky, had the hottest summer of any major U.S. city. Not because it had the hottest temperatures, but it spent the most days above its averages. There were 73 above-average temperature days in Louisville this summer.

Memphis, Tennessee, had the second-most above-average temperature days, with 72.

The rest of the top 10 cities are: Atlanta...Raleigh, North Carolina...New Orleans...Washington, D.C....Chicago...Detroit...Kansas City...and Philadelphia.

Louisville, Detroit, Chicago, Philly...ALL close to us! See? Too hot!

Los Angeles is on the other end of the spectrum...there were ZERO days with above-average temperatures in L.A. this summer. And San Francisco only had one day above-average.

Low tonight of 47...and I'm SO glad some cooler days are here!

Wednesday, August 25, 2010



G'd mornin', happy hump! So we are getting this new website in the next week or two. It's going to be MUCH slicker than the current site...and with the new site, comes the need to create a new page for myself. That means writing a bio. Ya know, telling you about myself. I HATE those, I never have any idea what to put in them! The one on our current Q website was removed by me a few months ago because it'd been the same for 3 years and I realized how ridiculous it sounded.
I feel like maybe posing the question "what do you want to know?", probably via facebook, and then use that to write the bio once the site goes live. Seems like a decent idea? I'll think about it. Meantime, here's your Wednesday shtuff...

Judge Elden Fox was supposed to issue some kind of ruling today regarding the LINDSAY LOHAN case. He didn't. Instead, he just sprung her from rehab.

On Day 23 of what was supposed to be a 90-day stay, Lindsay checked out of UCLA Medical Center yesterday. They rushed her out a backdoor to a waiting vehicle, in order to avoid the media.

It was the doctors at UCLA who told Judge Fox that Lindsay should be released. They decided that Lindsay's addiction and psychiatric problems were not nearly as bad as they've been depicted up to now.

Apparently, a big part of Lindsay's problem was that she was misdiagnosed with ADHD and placed on Adderall...which is a powerful stimulant that can have an effect similar to that of METH...especially in someone who doesn't need it.

According to RadarOnline.com, Lindsay will continue to receive outpatient treatment two or three times a week at UCLA.

PARIS HILTON awoke at about 6:30 yesterday morning, only to discover a man with TWO KNIVES trying to get into her house. Luckily, he tripped the alarm system, and police got there before he could get in.

The perp...a 31-year-old man named Nathan Lee Parada...was arrested on one count of felony burglary. As of last night, he was being held on $50,000 bail.

Shortly after the incident, Paris Tweeted, "So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes. Cops are here arresting him."
(Yes, she wrote "knifes".)

Here's footage from a news chopper of Paris walking out onto her balcony wrapped in a blanket...and possibly nothing else...

TMZ claims that HEIDI MONTAG might be ready to jump on board the celebrity sex tape train. She's supposedly in negotiations now with Vivid Entertainment...the porno company that SPENCER PRATT is threatening to sell their sex tapes to.

TMZ says, "Heidi wants [Vivid] to provide her with the sales numbers on Kim Kardashian's sex tape, which was also released through Vivid, because Heidi may be interested in working out a deal."

Now obviously, Heidi will never admit to this...so there's no use waiting for the "official word." Even if she signs off on the tape, she'll continue to deny she did...even while standing in line at the bank to cash the checks.

JENNA JAMESON made a fantastic comment yesterday! She says, "Why do people do porno tapes, sell them, make boatloads of money, then LIE about being victimized? I own up to my porn. I don't cry and say my boyfriend stole it.


KATY PERRY can't stop talking about her "innuendo"-filled song, "Peacock", which includes the lyric: "Are you brave enough to let me see your peacock?"

Now, she's calling "Peacock", "the world's biggest innuendo." (???)

Katy adds, "With me there are a lot of double entendres. There's a lot of puns. […] I'm always kind of looking for that one thing that's really normal that you can make twisted."

Hmmm.......that's much like myself actually!

Guys LOVE coming up with new terms for women's breasts. I'm guessing that's why the website jezebel.com took a poll to come up with our favorite all-time term. But strangely, the winner was...boobs.
And they won by a MASSIVE margin, with 47% of the vote. The next runner-up was...a word we can't say on-air that rhymes with 'Ritz.' That got 23% of the vote.

Some of the other popular terms were: Knockers...chesticles (really)..."the girls"...jubblies...ta-tas...and rack.

And some of the less popular submissions in the poll were: Sack of angry rabbits...womanly protuberances..."Thelma and Louise"...nortons (???)...and "Tweety and Sylvester."

I just report it.

This answer wasn't good enough for the cops...so I'm guessing that, one day, it also won't be good enough for Jesus.

There's a 19-year-old sophomore at Miami University of Ohio named Jacob Pleban, and around 1:00 A.M. on Friday, he was caught by the cops drunkenly RELIEVING HIMSELF on the back wall of a Methodist church.

And when they asked him if he realized he was doing that to a Methodist church, he told them it was okay because, quote, "I'm Catholic."

They didn't accept "I'm Catholic" as an excuse, and arrested him. He was charged with public urination, disorderly conduct and underage intoxication.

Tuesday shtuff...

And maybe Beyonce with no bra is your thing. I feel it is my duty to share it with you...

MILEY CYRUS engages in some pretty wild behavior in her upcoming movie, "LOL: Laughing Out Loud". In the course of the film, Miley's character loses her virginity, smokes pot, gets drunk, kisses a girl AND shows her mother...played by DEMI MOORE...her Brazilian wax.

Demi even has a line where she says, "You're my daughter, and I won't let you turn into a porn star!"
I know, sounds like a cutting edge flick! Uh anyway, in a recent interview with MTV News, however, Demi said that Miley is, "incredibly grounded" and nothing like her character.

Okay, since this is Miley Cyrus we're talking about, I assume there's going to be the usual firestorm of controversy. But I really think we should differentiate here, because this is ACTING. I know, shocking coming from me. For those who don't know, I just LOOOOOVE Miley (sarcasm)

"We're already plenty rich, we don't need it. We're like thousand-aires, multiple thousands, multiple."
KINGS OF LEON singer CALEB FOLLOWILL...who was talking about how the band didn't feel any pressure to make another hit album to please their suddenly HUGE fan base.

Kings of Leon's next album, "Come Around Sundown", will hit stores on October 19th.

KANYE WEST has announced...on Twitter, of course...that he's going to drop a new track every weekend from now through Christmas.
He says, "I'm calling it Good Fridays. Yall know every Friday yall gone have a new joint from our family. We look at the game completely different now. It's about the fans. No more holding back."

In addition to the Friday release date, it's probably called "Good Fridays" because Kanye's label is called G.O.O.D. Music. The G.O.O.D. acronym stands for: Getting Out Our Dreams.

Btw, Kanye is performing at the VMA's this year, as are EMINEM and B.o.B!

This story makes me go 'what is WRONG with society!?'
Anyway, earlier this month, 61-year-old Al Stults of Lakewood, Colorado, was at a Safeway grocery store, ordering some chicken at the deli counter.

He says that the woman behind the counter was a, quote, "heavy-set woman." She asked him what kind of chicken he wanted. Al pointed at the chicken breasts and said "I like the large ones." Then he says the woman laughed.

A week later, Al was back at the Safeway deli counter. He saw the same deli clerk working, but when she saw him she walked away. Another clerk took his order, and Al says she was EXTREMELY rude to him.

He went to the manager to complain about the rudeness, but the manger told him that the last time he was in the store, he OFFENDED the deli worker by, quote, "giggling about [her] large breasts."

They argued...the manager called the police on Al (!!!!)...and filed a trespassing complaint. Now, Al is BANNED (!!!) from Safeway for an entire year, and if he goes back, he can be charged with trespassing.

You have GOT to be kidding me?! Someone needs a sense of humor!

#1.) THAT THE SUN REVOLVES AROUND THE EARTH. Hopefully this has gone down in the last ten years, but in a 1999 Gallup poll, 18% of Americans said the Earth was the center of the universe.

In case you're keeping track...Galileo proved that wrong about 400 years ago.

#2.) ONE-THIRD OF AMERICANS BELIEVE IN GHOSTS. That's according to a poll the Associated Press did for Halloween in 2007. One-third of people ALSO said they believed in UFO's, and 19% believed in WITCHCRAFT.

#3.) THAT HUMANS AND DINOSAURS LIVED TOGETHER. We don't have the NATIONWIDE stats on this, but according to a recent survey by the University of Texas, that's what 30% of Texans believe.

#4.) THAT THE MOON LANDING WAS A HOAX. It's been over 40 years since NASA landed the first man on the moon, and polls consistently show that 6% of Americans still think they faked it.

Monday, August 23, 2010


Hey!! Monday's here!! Who's excited? Actually I like Monday's...I'm usually off (though I'm not today, but whatever)...I know 99% of you aren't big Monday fans though, so...not excited!

I must tell you about this bizzare-o dream I had last night. It was actually a 2 parter, but I don't really remember the first part. I know from the first part, that John Mayer (yes, THAT John Mayer) was living in Maximo. If you have no idea where that is, I don't blame you. Tiny little burg between Alliance and Louisville. Along Easton.

So anyway, John Mayer is living in Maximo. Now, the 2nd part of the dream, I know I was AT John's house. And he was dating Britney Spears, and this was apparently Britney's first day home after her big concert tour, cause she was exhausted as hell. Britney was in the living room with me, she was laying on one couch, I was on the smaller one. John was outside doing something, what, I don't remember. But Britney was pissy (I've never met her, but that wouldn't surprise me) and kept yelling at me about sh*t...I was just trying to get her to shut up so John didn't come in and kick me out! LOL!

I don't remember how that part ended, but I remember going out the backdoor and leaving. It's like a movie that has deleted scenes I guess?

WEIRD! Why? I have NO idea at all...ha!

Here's some more shtuff...

I'm not going to believe this until it comes from a more reliable source, but...Britain's "Mirror" tabloid claims that JENNIFER ANISTON is secretly dating JOHN MAYER again.

A so-called "source" (my fav) says John made the first move, but Jen is taking it slow because, "she's been hurt by him before and isn't prepared to go public with the relationship just yet."

About three months ago, BRITNEY SPEARS surpassed ASHTON KUTCHER as the celebrity with the most Twitter followers. But her reign is already over.

On Saturday, LADY GAGA surpassed Britney...but not by much.

As of last night, Gaga was ahead by almost 34,000 followers...5.73 million to 5.7 million. (Ashton has just under 5.6 million followers.)

I'll be honest, I don't. But you might, so here ya go.
SPENCER PRATT has some sex tapes of himself and HEIDI MONTAG, and he's looking to sell.

Spencer has contacted Vivid Entertainment...the company that releases pretty much ALL the celebrity sex tapes. And there's definite interest.
There's a report floating around that Spencer wants $5 MILLION for the footage...and that Vivid might be willing to pay up.

It's not clear exactly how much material Spencer has...but some sources say there's quite a bit. Some of it was filmed BEFORE Heidi got all that plastic surgery last year, and some is from after.

On Friday, Spencer told "Us Weekly", "I've been making films since I was in the 7th grade. I'm looking forward to people seeing my directorial debut!"

There's also...allegedly...a GIRL-GIRL tape featuring Heidi and "Playboy" Playmate KARISSA SHANNON.
Karissa tells TMZ that such a tape WAS made, but she doesn't necessarily believe Spencer actually has it. If he does, and he releases it, she plans to sue.

You can probably expect Heidi to launch a lawsuit of her own if Spencer releases any footage. On Friday, after the news broke, Heidi Tweeted, "Crying."

Then she added, "Please send me your prayers and love I need it!"
On Saturday, Spencer Tweeted that he, "Promises you the 'Citizen Kane' of sex tapes. Honestly, Orson Wells makes a guest appearance."

Then he added that he, "Recommends you wait for the Special Edition Sex Tape. Blu-Ray, director's commentary, and bloopers!"

Heidi responded, "F U", with a lot of exclamation points...to which Spencer replied, quote, "Seriously? You're going to start (crap) on Twitter?"

Anyone else wanna punch themselves in the head after reading that? I feel dumber for even writing about it.

Since going to jail and rehab, Lindsay has DOUBLED her Twitter followers. Lindsay had 250,000 Twitter followers last December. In May, she had between 500,000 and 600,000.

Her current count is well over a MILLION...and she hasn't Tweeted anything in a month.

With everybody talking about that upcoming Facebook movie, "The Social Network", this seems like a no-brainer: There's now a movie in the works about how Google came to be.

It'll be based on a book called "Googled: The End of the World As We Know It", which was written by Ken Auletta.
It's in the early stages at this point, so there's no word on casting or a release date. "The Social Network" hits theaters October 1st. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE is in that and it looks damn good. You could GOOGLE a trailer if you'd like. EH?! EH!?!?!

"American Idol" will be a different beast next year...mostly because of the departure of SIMON COWELL. And like a lot of us, the show's advertisers aren't too confident about the future of "Idol".

"MediaLife" magazine conducted a survey...asking advertisers things like how long they expected "Idol" to remain a #1 show. Here are some of the results:

21% of those surveyed think that "Idol" will lose its #1 distinction THIS season...36% think it has one more year at the top...27% believe that it has two more #1 seasons left...and 11% can see it on top for another three seasons.

85% also thought "Idol's" ratings would decline MORE steeply than they did last season, because of Simon's absence.
Meanwhile, 83% named Simon as their all-time favorite judge. PAULA ABDUL...who wasn't even on the show last season...came in second with (just) 9% of the vote.

There wasn't much love for her female replacements. A majority of advertisers supported Fox's decision to let ELLEN DEGENERES go...and a majority also believe that KARA DIOGUARDI should NOT return.

WEEZER is thinking about doing a RETRO tour, which would highlight their first two albums, "(The Blue Album)" and "Pinkerton".

Singer RIVERS CUOMO explains, "We have this really exciting idea to do a tour where we spend two nights in each city, and the first night, we play the entire 'Blue Album', and the second night, we play the entirety of 'Pinkerton'.

"We're just running it by promoters right now to see if there's sufficient interest in the markets to do something like that, and if they're on board, it's gonna happen."

I'll let you know if it gets off the ground.

EMINEM and MARIAH CAREY had a serious BEEF raging last summer...(there were all kinds of disses and dis tracks shooting back and forth, and at one point, Mariah's husband NICK CANNON even got involved)...but now he says he's over it.

Eminem tells "Vibe", "You know what? I got to be honest. I really don't want to talk about her anymore only just because it's kind of like the last thing I said about her was on 'Cold Wind Blows'.

"I made the comment . . . ['Take a look at Mariah next time I inspire you to write a song.']...I don't want to keep beating a dead horse. I'm not even going to comment about it. I'm done with that whole situation. I said what I had to say. I'm done."

All the heat between them is basically over Eminem's claim that he dated Mariah for about six months back in 2001...but she's always vehemently denied that.

I came across this, and I'm not quite sure if they were trying to present this as shocking news. Because I don't think it is! According to a new survey, most people have been loyal to their BANK longer than they've been loyal to their spouse, girlfriend, or boyfriend.

The average person has been with their bank for 16.5 years, and with their partner 14.1 years. 18% of people have even been with their bank for more than 30 years. Only 7% of people have changed banks more than twice during the past decade.

US Bank, 7 years!

Every year, the Oxford English Dictionary adds a ton of new words that have entered pop culture...which basically legitimizes them as part of the English language.

And this year...is no exception. Oxford has added about 2,000 new words and phrases, some of which have been making us cringe for years, and some of which are so old and lame, no one even says them anymore.

Here are some of their high-profile additions . . .

--VUVUZELA. "Long horn blown by fans at soccer matches."
--BROMANCE. "A close but non-sexual relationship between two men."
--CHILLAX. "Calm down and relax."
--SOCIAL MEDIA. "Websites and applications used for social networking."
--BUZZKILL. "A person or thing that has a depressing or dispiriting effect."
--STAYCATION. "A holiday spent in one's home country."
--CHILL PILL. "A notional pill taken to make someone calm down."
--CHEESEBALL. "Lacking taste, style or originality."
--WARDROBE MALFUNCTION. "An instance of a person accidentally exposing an intimate part of their body as a result of an article of clothing slipping out of position."
--HATER. "Negative person."
--DEFRIEND. "Another term for unfriend (remove someone from a list of friends or contacts on a social networking site)."
--LBD. "Little black dress."
--INTERWEB. "The Internet."
--FRENEMY. "A person with whom one is friendly despite a fundamental dislike or rivalry."
--TURDUCKEN. "A roast dish consisting of a chicken inside a duck inside a turkey."

Some words ARE rejected though! You won't see CANKLES in there this year!

Very quietly, Five Guys Burgers and Fries is becoming one of the most popular fast food chains in America. And they're doing it the old fashioned way.......by making their burgers as greasy and unhealthy as possible!!

According to the new 2010 Zagat Survey, Five Guys has been voted the best fast food burger in the country. Do we have any in Canton? Don't believe we do. I believe there is one on Rt 18, right by Cleveland-Massillon Rd in Montrose/Fairlawn, that's probably closest.
The runner-up was In-N-Out Burger.

Here are some of the other most popular fast food items in the country, based on Zagat's survey of more than 6,500 Americans.

BEST FRENCH FRIES: MCDONALD'S. (I totally disagree) Runner-up: Five Guys.
BEST SALADS: PANERA BREAD. (agree) Runner-up: Wendy's.
BEST FRIED CHICKEN: KFC. (NO WAY! Chick-Fil-A!) Runner-up: Popeye's. (oooo yum!)

BEST VALUE MENU: MCDONALD'S. Runner-up: Wendy's.
BEST COFFEE: STARBUCKS. (No. Sheetz.) Runner-up: Dunkin' Donuts.

BEST BREAKFAST SANDWICH: MCDONALD'S. (No. BK, Sheetz. Or HARDEE'S if we're going old-school!) Runner-up: Panera Bread.

BEST ICE CREAM: BEN & JERRY'S. Runner-up: Haagen-Dazs.
BEST MILKSHAKE: DAIRY QUEEN. Runner-up: Cold Stone Creamery.

BEST OVERALL CHAIN OF OVER 5,000 LOCATIONS: WENDY'S. Runners-up: Subway, KFC, Taco Bell, Burger King.

And there ya go. I'm ending it with food and it's 12:13pm. Lunch time!! Have a great Monday!

Here we are, finally Friday and FLO-RIDA IN CANTON TODAY!!! Congrats to all of our winners, it's gonna be HUGE, we'll see you shortly at PETE'S!

Here's some shtuff...

For all of you ladies, the British edition of "Glamour" magazine has released the results of its Sexiest Men of 2010 poll...and it looks like their readers are big into vampires.
"Twilight" actor ROBERT PATTINSON took the top spot, followed by his co-star, TAYLOR LAUTNER at #2.

Two other "Twilight" guys...XAVIER SAMUEL and KELLAN LUTZ, finished in 4th and 5th place, respectively.

And the #3 spot was taken by IAN SOMERHALDER . . . from the TV show "The Vampire Diaries". His "Vampire Diaries" costar PAUL WESLEY came in at #48.

Here's the full list and gallery:

This is one of those silly stories that probably isn't true...but it's just too fun to pass up...

The not-always-reliable British tabloids say that BRITNEY SPEARS' boyfriend, Jason Trawick, has issued an ultimatum: Either she bathes more, or he's leaving.

A so-called "source" says, "Britney's not the type to cover herself in pretty-smelling lotions. She hates washing her hair, so sometimes it can smell downright sour. She'll sometimes grab an outfit and wear it two or three times a week.

"Recently she put on a sundress for the third day in a row, but Jason refused to leave the house with her until she put on something else."

Fortunately, Jason's threat is working. The source says, "Thankfully, she's trying more now because even she knows you couldn't think of a more embarrassing reason for a relationship to break down."

CAMERON DIAZ can give you a virus...on your computer. The McAfee anti-virus people have released their annual list of the most dangerous celebrities to search for online. And this year's topper is Cameron Diaz.

That means that if you do a search for "Cameron Diaz", there's a good chance you'll turn up sites that will give your computer a virus. Possibly one that opens up all your personal information to IDENTITY THIEVES.

Here's the Top 10 . . . (which is actually a Top 12 . . .)
#1.) Cameron Diaz
#2.) Julia Roberts
#3.) Jessica Biel . . . (She was #1 last year. Should she be disappointed?)
#4.) Gisele Bundchen
#5.) Brad Pitt . . . (He was #1 in 2008.)
#6.) Adriana Lima
#7.) Tied: Jennifer Love Hewitt and Nicole Kidman
#8.) Tom Cruise
#9.) Tied: Heidi Klum and Penelope Cruz
#10.) Anna Paquin

This year's Grammy nominees will once again be announced during a one-hour primetime concert special...even though no one ever watches these things.

This is the third year they're doing it. The first one drew 7.1 million viewers, and last year's only attracted 6.4 million viewers.

It'll air December 1st, at 10:00 P.M., on CBS. No performers have been announced yet. The actual Grammys will air live on February 13th...also on CBS.

"Honestly, I don't know how much longer I have in this game."
He adds, "I'm always going to love hip-hop. But how much longer am I going to still do it? I couldn't give you an answer. But the day that this is not better than the last will probably be the day I stop.

"I do love it so much...But even if I was rapping at 50 [years old], I don't know if I would put it out. […] You don't know how long people are going to want you around...realistically, if I don't rap, what the (eff) am I going to do? It's too late to be un-famous at this point."

That's it! Not much today...good stuff below from earlier in the week though! Have a GREAT WEEKEND!

Saving you money on your blog reading...this one is FREE!
FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Robbie-Mack/101401649918620

FLO-RIDA in town tomorrow...we're giving away AUBURN and DIRTY HEADS tickets very soon...plus another BIG BIG BIG BIG show to announce soon...MAYBE even bigger than FLO! Keep listening :)
Here's some shtuff...

The other day I told you about Duff getting married. Well, the "New York Post" says that HILARY DUFF signed a prenuptial agreement before she tied the knot with NHL star MIKE COMRIE. But it's not because of his hockey money. (He plays for the Edmonton Oilers.)

Mike's dad owns a major furniture and appliance business in Canada, and he's worth about $500 MILLION!

But a so-called "source" (those are my favorite) says it was no big deal..."It was a totally amicable agreement. They love each other very much and knew this was just a technicality."

Rumor has it that JOHN MAYER has been making a play for HEIDI MONTAG ever since she left SPENCER PRATT. And she's interested...but a little worried about his reputation.

Why would John be interested in Heidi? Really, WHY?! John...you could have ANY woman you want! I know AT LEAST 2 dozen women I would rather set MY sights on!
But let's not forget JESSICA "SEXUAL NAPALM" SIMPSON. And at least on the surface, she and Heidi share a few similarities.

A so-called "source" (see? favorite) says, "John likes the Barbie doll, no-brains type of girl. But Heidi is still raw over her split with Spencer. At heart, she's a very conservative, old-fashioned girl from Colorado."

NICOLE KIDMAN and KEITH URBAN just bought a $10 million apartment in Manhattan.
Obviously, it's got all the amenities you can think of. And one you probably HAVEN'T thought of: A car elevator.

For real. You just drive into the thing on the ground floor, and it takes you straight up to the floor your apartment is on!
Check some pics of the new pad:





However, you probably won't be able to help yourself. Warner Brothers has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against a Swiss condom brand called....here it comes......OK, I shouldn'tt have said, my bad.....HARRY POPPER.

Warner Brothers says the name obviously sounds way too much like "Harry Potter"...and thus tarnishes the image of the franchise.

And if that name weren't enough to infringe on the copyright, the Harry Popper logo is a condom that wears round glasses and holds a magic wand. (!!)
Pic of it? YES!

About three weeks ago, everyone was saying that AEROSMITH singer STEVEN TYLER was coming to "American Idol", but the deal hadn't been finalized.

Well, now it has...supposedly. Fox hasn't announced anything officially. And until that happens, you should be careful of what you believe. But that hasn't stopped a lot of people from believing it's a done deal.

The Associated Press quotes a "source close to Steven," who claims to have heard it directly from Steven's own, cavernous mouth. (Uh, So what? Steven told the whole Internet that he "is doing it" a couple weeks ago.)

The "Hollywood Reporter" has TWO sources who say the same thing. And Deadline.com also has MULTIPLE unnamed sources...as does E! Online.

Why do I get the feeling that these are the same two blabbermouths? How many "people close to Steven" are willing to sit around and chat with gossip and entertainment websites?

Well, "Access Hollywood" has a source, who's NOT anonymous: It's Aerosmith bassist TOM HAMILTON. He told them, "Steven is doing 'American Idol'. The ink is dry on that. So, we'll have to work around his schedule for a new record."

He added, "Steven is someone who absolutely lives to be in front of an audience, and the people closest to him know how witty and entertaining he can be.

"I don't know if 'American Idol' will be rock 'n' roll enough for him, but it is an opportunity for millions of people to see another side of Steven Tyler."

That's all for now. An official announcement on next year's "Idol" judges is expected just after Labor Day weekend. The show is going to need some judges in place by the middle of next month, when they begin filming auditions for next season.

"Chelsea Lately" minx CHELSEA HANDLER has announced that she'll be hosting this year's "MTV Video Music Awards", which will air live on September 12th.

Also looks like B.o.B will perform.

EMINEM'S "Recovery" sold another 133,000 copies last week, which pushes its total sales over 2 million copies and lands EMINEM back on top of the "Billboard" album chart. (He slipped out last week for a week)

Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" is still the year's best selling album. It's sold 2.5 million copies since February. Eminem's moved 2.1 million in only eight weeks, and he's on track to pass them up in the next few weeks.

It's going to be hard to miss TAYLOR SWIFT on August 27th. That's the day the new video for her song "Mine" will premiere at 9:00 P.M...on CMT, MTV, VH1 and MTV International. It's expected to reach over 160 countries around the world.

And if you can't wait that long, you can catch it 30 minutes earlier...at 8:30 P.M...on CMT.com, MTV.com and VH1.com. But BEFORE any of that starts, Taylor will host a show where she drones on about the video for 30 minutes.

I love me some Taylor, but come on...a 30 minute special?? That show is titled "CMT Premieres: Taylor Swift 'Mine'"...and it airs at 8:00 P.M. on CMT, MTV and VH1. And on 3 networks? Again, come on...

1 OUT OF 4...
This is interesting, I was JUST talking to someone about this this morning, and how the internet has really changed the ways of the dating world. And here comes this stat, if you can survive enough dates, there's a good chance you'll find the love of your life online.

According to new research from Stanford University, almost ONE out of FOUR couples in the U.S. today met on the Internet...whether through online dating, Facebook, MySpace, a message board, or even a Craigslist ad.

Based on these trends, we could be only a few years away from when the MAJORITY of couples meet on the Internet.

According to a new study, LAS VEGAS is the most STRESSFUL city in the U.S. And it's not just from all the people stressing in the airport, wondering how they came to town with $3,000 and managed to leave only with an STD.

Forbes.com based this list off of several stress factors, including unemployment, commute times, long work hours, health care options, physical health risk and exercise options.
Vegas has the highest unemployment rank and fewest exercise options of all major U.S. cities. Here's the full top 10:

#1.) Las Vegas
#2.) Los Angeles
#3.) Houston
#4.) Tampa
#5.) Riverside, California
#6.) Miami
#7.) Dallas
#8.) New York City
#9.) Chicago
#10.) Detroit

The economy is still SO bad that, every day, it's turning regular people into AMATEUR PROSTITUTES. Like 23-year-old Jessica Testin, and her roommate, 26-year-old Rachel Beloff, in Fairfax, Virginia.

Jessica and Rachel recently called their landlord, whose name hasn't been released. They said they couldn't afford their rent, and offered him a deal: He waives this month's rent...they perform SEXUAL FAVORS for him.

Even though he was married, the guy agreed, and went to their apartment to get-it-on.

The girls told him to go into a bedroom and strip, which he did. Then one of them came in and did a striptease for him...and after she got naked, she jumped on the bed and straddled him. Sounds pretty sweet so far, right?

Well, that's when things turned bad: During the straddling, the other girl tried to steal the landlord's clothes and cell phone. But somehow he managed to get them back, and left. And that's when he found out the girls were going to BLACKMAIL him.

They told him they'd taped everything, and unless he paid them $500 a week AND gave them free rent, they'd give a DVD to his wife. And he did the smart thing, even though he knew it might get him exposed: He went to the cops.

They got the women on tape making another offer to the landlord: $11,000 in cash and they'd give him all the recordings and leave him alone forever.

On Tuesday, the cops raided the girls' apartment. They were both arrested and charged with a felony threat to extort money, which has a maximum prison sentence of 10 years. But, hey, that's 10 years of free rent.

And hey! We have their facebook pages! Girl #2 isn't private either so you can stalk her statuses once she gets out of the slammer
Girl 1: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1450630058
Girl 2: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000278698375

IF YOU GET MARRIED ON A DARE IN DELAWARE, DON'T WORRY. To get a marriage annulled in Delaware, you can choose from a whole bunch of fun, different reasons.
There's, "unsoundness of mind," "physical incapacity to consummate," "underage without consent of parents"...and even "jest" and "dare."

WHEN YOU PROPOSE TO A WOMAN IN SOUTH CAROLINA, YOU BETTER MEAN IT. If a guy in South Carolina over the age of 16 proposes to a girl just to trick her into sleeping with him, he can get up to a YEAR IN PRISON.

Jimmy John's in Alliance, I snapped this late last night. Good stuff!

Alright, that's enough for today...YOU have a wonderful rest of your Thursday!

Wednesday, August 18, 2010


Updates on breaking stories, random thoughts from my mind, what I'm up to, etc...good times! Click 'like' please :)
Let's get right to the shtuff.....

"My entire body is hairless."
KIM KARDASHIAN...in the new issue of "Allure" magazine. She adds, "I am Armenian, so of course I am obsessed with laser hair removal!"

Kim also discusses the sex tape she made with her then-boyfriend RAY J...which "leaked" in 2007. She says, "Not my most proud moment...but I think I've done a good job of replacing negative things with positive things."

Kim was a little prouder of showing off her body in "Playboy"...which she did later that year. She says, "It's nothing that I regret...being on the cover of 'Playboy' is very iconic.

"I was like, 'OK, I'm proud to do this and to show people that I don't have to be stick-skinny to be looked at as a sex symbol, and to me that's not what's attractive anyway.' So I was all for it, although I was very nervous."

Kim went to an all-girls school in Beverly Hills, where she was voted "Most Likely to Lie About her Ethnicity" and "Most Likely to Meet her Husband at the Million Man March." (???)

Speaking of Kim, she keeps saying she's single. But on Monday night she went out to dinner with her alleged boyfriend, Cowboys wide receiver MILES AUSTIN. They were joined by teammate TONY ROMO. They went to a Chili's in Oxnard, California.

EVAN RACHEL WOOD and MARILYN MANSON have broken up again. This is the THIRD time they've failed to keep the relationship together.

They first started dating in 2006, but broke up in 2008, during which time Evan was reportedly nailing actor SHANE WEST. They got together for a short time after that, but split again.

They got back together again, and Manson proposed to her onstage in Paris this past January. But a so-called "source" says, "They fought a lot. It was always on and off. He's a creative mind, so he's not the easiest person to be in a relationship with."
Not surprising.

I don't even really feel like writing about this since it was so obvious that this is what was going to happen. It's still not official yet, but the NFL Network and Fox Sports say it's happening.

The NFL Network is reporting that the team (Minnesota Vikings of course) sent three players...Steve Hutchinson, Jared Allen and Ryan Longwell...to Brett's home in Hattiesburg, Mississippi yesterday to coax him back, and it worked.

Fox Sports says Brett took a flight to Minnesota later in the day to join the team.

Brett has already missed the Vikings' training camp. If he is indeed playing this season, he has about three weeks to get ready. The Vikings open the season against the Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints on September 9th.

I just came across a list of the top-earning TV talk show hosts. Obviously OPRAH is #1...just found it surprising and slightly funny that CONAN makes $3 Million MORE than LENO does!
Sadly, the far less talented ryan seacrest (yes, lower case) earns about $13 Million more.

Ha! Q92 fan Ashley in North Canton has to be one of the biggest BSB fans I know! And now two of the biggest sensations of the '90s...the BACKSTREET BOYS and NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK...are reportedly working out a deal to tour together next year. And there's a chance BOYZ II MEN could be onboard as well! I'll be honest here, if it was BSB and BIIM, I *may* consider going, but adding NKOTB...I can't stomach that. Sorry.

Anyway, a so-called "source"...who is supposedly speaking from the 21st century...tells E! Online, "The idea is to recreate the boy band phenomenon. It will be the ultimate ladies' night out."
Nothing is official yet, though.

HIP$$$ HOP$$$ STARS$$$
"Forbes" magazine has put together a list of Hip-Hop's Biggest Earners over the past year...and JAY-Z came out on top. According to "Forbes", Jay pulled down an estimated $63 million over the past 12 months.
Here's the complete list...

#1.) Jay-Z, $63 million
#2.) Sean "Diddy" Combs, $30 million
#3.) Akon, $21 million
#4.) Lil Wayne, $20 million
#5.) Dr. Dre, $17 million
#6.) Ludacris, $16 million
#7.) Snoop Dogg, $15 million
#8.) Timbaland, $14 million
#9.) Pharrell Williams, $13 million
#10.) Kanye West, $12 million

Every year, a professor at Beloit College in Beloit, Wisconsin, puts out something called the "Mindset List," which sums up the pop culture knowledge of incoming college freshman.

This year's college freshmen are the Class of 2014. The majority of them were born in late 1991 or early 1992. I was 6. Here are eight of the items on the Mindset List that may send you straight to the Botox clinic by lunchtime...

#1.) They don't remember the L.A. riots or RODNEY KING...those happened in '92, the year they were born.

#2.) They know CLINT EASTWOOD as a director, not as Dirty Harry.

#3.) Very few of them ever used CORDED PHONES. In fact, before they even hit age 10, everyone had cell phones.

#4.) To them, ICE-T is a television cop...not the guy who did "Cop Killer".

#5.) Czechoslovakia split up into the Czech Republic and Slovakia when they were less than two years old. And the Soviet Union crumbled before they were born.

#6.) They've never known pizza places with 30-minutes-or-it's-free delivery guarantees. Domino's stopped that before they were born.

#7.) They have zero memory of DAN QUAYLE.

#8.) By the time they were listening to music, grunge was over and boy bands were back in.

The UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI is one of the lowest-ranked colleges in the country! Check out the top schools and the worst schools

GET OFF YER ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You know, you've got to hand it to China. As much as they've quickly become one of the biggest and most important economies in the world, occasionally they still call back to their EVIL COMMUNIST ROOTS.

In eastern China, park officials were sick of people just sitting around clogging up their benches all day. So they've started installing benches with coin-operated timers...and if your time runs out, SHARP SPIKES shoot up out of the seat. (!!!!!!!!!)

Allegedly, these spikes won't cause any serious harm...but they're SHARP enough that you couldn't sit on them without being in pain. Yikes!!

If you don't go to the dentist enough, you might eventually need a DEEP cleaning, which is where they clean UNDER your gums. It costs about TEN TIMES more than a normal visit, and it's about as pleasant as it sounds.

That's why you have to take care of your smile. Here's a list from "Prevention" magazine of four weird ways you can take better care of your teeth. My friend Angie is my personal resident dental expert, so she can feel free to write any of these off as BS...

#1.) DON'T BRUSH AFTER YOU DRINK POP. The acid combined with the brushing erodes your enamel. So you have to rinse your mouth out before you brush.

And according to a recent study in the "British Dental Journal," if you drink pop though a STRAW, it'll help preserve your enamel because the soda won't come in contact with your teeth as much.

#2.) GET MORE VITAMIN C. According to a study of more than 12,000 people, if you don't get at least 60 milligrams of vitamin C a day...which is what's in an 8-ounce glass of orange juice...you're more likely to develop gum disease.

#3.) TAKE YOUR TOOTHBRUSH TO THE POOL. Chlorine protects against bacteria, but it also lowers the pool's pH level and makes it more acidic. So if there's too much chlorine in the pool, the water can erode your enamel and stain your teeth.

If you're a frequent swimmer, or you spend more than an hour in the pool, you should brush your teeth and rinse as soon as you get out.

#4.) KISS MORE OFTEN. According to the Academy of General Dentistry, kissing increases the amount of saliva in your mouth, which helps rinse away the bacteria that causes cavities. Or, if you're not getting any action, you can just chew sugar-free gum.

There ya go. Make it a GREAT hump day!

Lemme be honest with you here. Generally, Tuesday is one of my days off. So, don't expect TOO much good stuff (shtuff) on Tuesdays. But, there are a few...

KINGS OF LEON have set a make-up date for the show they canceled after just THREE songs in St. Louis last month...because of excessive PIGEON POOPING.

According to STLoday.com, Kings of Leon will return to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater...the same place that's infested with pigeons...on September 25th. (Guessing the venue took care of the pigeon problem?)

It'll be FREE for everyone with a ticket to the canceled show...and a batch of cheap, $10 tickets will be available to those who want to go but don't have tickets.

LIL WAYNE has put up yet another letter to his fans on WeezyThanxYou.com...and here are the highlights from this one:

"There's some pretty cool people in here. Even though this isn't a cool place to be. I've learned plenty already, and the best lesson is to not come back."

"Last night, I kicked ass in UNO!" (I wonder what his strategy is????)

"Gotta stay hydrated. Though it's hot, I still work out. Now don't be expecting me to look like Hercules when I get out, but I should be a little bulky. I guess."
Wanna read Wayne's full letter?

EVERYONE is pregnant these days, it seems. Did you hear DeLuca this morning? Charlotte is out sick because SHE'S pregnant!!

Well...according to a new survey out of England, when a couple decides to get pregnant, it takes them an average of 104 coital sessions to conceive.

They also found that 10% of women are so eager to conceive that as SOON as they're ovulating they leave work, tell their husbands to do the same, and try to meet at home to have relations as quickly as possible. Hmmm.

That's it. Yes, really. Again, my day off. That and there really isn't much interesting stuff going on today. You'll get more goodness tomorrow!

Monday, August 16, 2010


Oh yes. It's very much a Monday...thankies for readin', here's some shtuff....

THE JONAS BROTHERS are serious about their reputations as virginal pop stars. (Except for Kevin, of course. He's married now, so he can DO IT ALL DAY LONG if he so chooses.)

JOE JONAS is threatening to sue a celebrity gossip blogger...Some Canadian dude named Zack Taylor...for insinuating that Joe is sexually active.

This guy posted a story claiming that Joe and his ex-girlfriend, DEMI LOVATO, are, quote, "friends with benefits"...and Joe wants him to pull it.

Joe's attorney says the story is, "completely false, offensive and defamatory"...and is a, "malicious attempt to attack and devalue Joe's good name and reputation."

The website says it, "stands by our sources and their claims."

HILARY DUFF and hockey player MIKE COMRIE...He plays for the Edmonton Oilers...got married Saturday in Santa Barbara, California.

Hilary's sister HAILEY...prolly best know to you as Summer from "Napoleon Dynamite"...was the maid of honor. They spent their wedding night at the San Ysidro Ranch.

Hilary and Mike started dating in 2007, when they met while SEPARATELY visiting a resort in Idaho. Mike proposed this past February by slipping a $1 million ring on her finger.

The always modest LADY GAGA is already hyping her next album, which will be out sometime next year, as the ANTHEM of the next decade.

She tells "i-D" magazine, "The new album is my absolute greatest work I've ever done, and I'm so excited about it.

"The message, the melodies, the direction, the meaning, what it will mean to my fans and what it will mean to me in my own life...it's utter liberation.

"I'm on the quest to create the anthem for my generation for the next decade, so that's what I've done."

So now that she's set the expectations for her next album in the "pretty much impossible to achieve" neighborhood, how does she plan on maintaining "longevity" as an artist?

Here's her answer: "I will always have as much penis as I do vagina. And, no, I'm not going to explain that; it's part of the answer." (uh, what???)

KATY PERRY claims her next album may have a MEAT theme...or at least, that's what she says when she's trying to drum up press for her new album. (Which hits stores next Tuesday.)

She tells Britain's "Q" magazine, "My new record 'Teenage Dream' is more about confectionary and candy and baked goods. There's less fruit imagery [than on my last album 'One of the Boys'.]

"For my next album, I'd like it to be about meat, and I want to be on the cover wearing a bacon bikini. Also I want my records to smell of sausage or pork. CDs are over, but not if they smell original."

For what it's worth...and admittedly, it isn't worth much at all...Katy's fiancé, comedian RUSSELL BRAND, is a vegetarian. If she actually DID do a meat album, I doubt it would affect their relationship, which should be non-existent by then anyway. Or so we hope.

This is pretty interesting. "Bloomberg Businessweek" magazine just released its annual list of the most POPULAR items in America. Some are predictable...some are surprising...all of them are intriguing. Here are the highlights from the list...

This is based on number of travelers, not how much the travelers ENJOY themselves there. Atlanta had 88 million passengers last year, the most of any airport in the world.

Smirnoff is generally the cheapest vodka available...at least the cheapest one with a brand name you've heard of. But in taste tests, it usually holds up well against more expensive vodkas.

17.8% of the cars sold in North America last year were white.

This feels like an upset, but apparently, Honey Nut Cheerios are HUGE with the LATINOS. And since they're the fastest growing demographic in the U.S., they're taking Honey Nut Cheerios to the top with them.

(And if that trend holds out across other industries, expect America's favorite car of 2015 to be a purple and orange El Camino.)

Regular old Lay's...not Baked Lay's, not Wavy Lay's...are still America's most popular chip. Wavy Lay's are actually the second-most popular. I prefer hometown SHEARER'S!

42.8% of all American cigarette sales are Marlboro brands. The cigarette market on the whole is shrinking, though: Smoking in America is down more than 31% since 1990. That's a good thing!

The more surprising thing is that all of AXE'S terrible commercials seem to be working...it's now the second-most popular deodorant in the country.

German shepherds are second-most popular, Yorkshire terriers are third, golden retrievers are fourth, and beagles are fifth.

Well...generic Vicodin. It went generic in 2009 and was dispensed more than 128 million times.

The FDA counts shrimp as a fish. The average American ate 4.1 pounds of it in 2008. Canned tuna came in second, but we only ate about half that much.

Americans bought 1.8 billion roses last year. Thanks to the economy, a much cheaper option...carnations...were the second-most popular.

Sugarless gum owns about two-thirds of the gum/mint market, and Orbit is definitely the most popular. Trident came in second.

It's weird, but it's true: Wal-Mart sells more bananas than anything else in their stores. Surprising since certainly not all Wal-Mart's even HAVE bananas!

4.2 million Americans are employed as retail salespeople, making it the most popular paying job in the country. The median salary for a sales clerk is $20,260, by the way. The next most common jobs are cashiers, general office clerks, food preparers and servers, and nurses.

About one out of every three lipsticks purchased is made by Revlon.

Jif has been the most popular peanut butter since 1981.

In 2009, more than 11 million pairs of Air Force 1s sold in the U.S. for more than $1 BILLION total. Think NELLY had something to do with that?

It beat out the Ford Mustang for the first time since 1986. And the most popular import sports car is...you'd never guess...the MINI Cooper.

This sounds like a very quick, and very STUPID way to make $100,000. You might get shot, but if you don't, it's quick cash.

A British prank video website called Battlecam is offering $100,000 to the person who gets taped being naked in front of PRESIDENT OBAMA...with the word "Battlecam" written on their chest...screaming "Battlecam."

The guy who owns Battlecam is a British billionaire named Alki David...he says he created the site because he loves practical jokes.

Sure, you'll get tackled by the Secret Service, probably break bones and ribs...have your package splashed all over the Internet...and you might end up held indefinitely in a terrorist prison...but hey, $100,000!!!!

School is starting back up here in the next week or two. So here's a list of the top ten most UNHEALTHY foods that are still served in public school cafeterias...

#10.) CANNED PEACHES. One serving has 136 calories and 33 grams of sugar. That's an entire DAY'S worth of sugar for a kid, and it has almost none of the nutrients you get from a fresh peach.

#9.) TATER TOTS. A serving size of nine tots has 150 calories and 7 grams of fat.

#8.) CHOCOLATE MILK. Ahh yes, those pints of Reiter. One little carton has 158 calories and 25 grams of sugar. To put that in perspective, a SNICKERS bar has 29 grams of sugar. So starting this year, public schools in Washington D.C. will stop offering flavored milk.

#7.) MASHED POTATOES AND GRAVY. Usually, the kind served in public schools aren't even real potatoes. They're made from dehydrated POTATO FLAKES. One serving has around 240 calories, and 9 grams of fat.

#6.) CORN DOGS. The low-grade meat in the hot dog is full of nitrates, and wrapping it in cornbread doesn't help. One corn dog has 240 calories and 34% of a child's recommended daily intake of sodium.

#5.) PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY. It depends on what types of peanut butter and jelly the school uses, but it's all basically sugar. So you can count on one sandwich having around 350 calories and 14 grams of fat.

#4.) MACARONI AND CHEESE. A serving of the over-processed kind from the cafeteria has about 350 calories, 18 grams of fat, 5 grams of sugar, and four times as much salt as an individual size bag of potato chips.

#3.) TUNA CASSEROLE. It's full of fish and vegetables, but it's still one of the fattiest foods on the menu. One serving has 450 calories and 20 grams of fat. I honestly can't remember my schools ever serving this. But maybe they did?

#2.) SLOPPY JOES. Kids love them, but one sandwich has 635 calories and 27 grams of fat. And over a third of it is SATURATED fat.

And the worst thing your kid can eat in the school cafeteria is...
#1.) NACHOS. One serving can have up to 1,000 calories and 60 grams of fat.

Have a great Monday!

FINALLY!! Great weekend coming up, I know Alliance has the Carnation festivites going on with the parade and fireworks tomorrow night. More FLO-RIDA tix on Q92 this afternoon, I'm in 3-7pm

FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Robbie-Mack/101401649918620

So what are your favorite songs right now? I'm lovin' the Bruno Mars "Just The Way You Are", plus Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" and Usher & Pitbull "DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love"...among others, but those are my top choices right now. Leave a comment on my facebook (link above) with a few of your favs right now if you feel like it...

Here's some shtuff....

This is certainly not something we can verify, but the "Star" tabloid claims that MILEY CYRUS is dead set on getting BREAST IMPLANTS. And she doesn't just want a little boost.

She wants cans to rival those of "Playboy" skank HOLLY MADISON. Holly is a 36D, which means that if this is true, Miley would be getting a HUGE upgrade.

November 23rd is Miley's birthday...so if she were to get implants before then, she would need her parents' consent.
Or not. My impression is that there are doctors out there who will do ANYTHING for a celebrity. I'm sure Miley could find a doctor who'd give her implants without permission from Billy Ray and momma.

One of my favorite movies, with OWEN WILSON and the amazingly cute RACHEL MCCADAMS...well, they are currently filming a Woody Allen movie called "Midnight in Paris". And Britain's not-always-reliable "Sun" tabloid claims that they're now bumping sweet spots in real life.

Yesterday, I showed you RIHANNA'S new neck tattoo. It says "Rebelle Fleur", and it's supposed to mean "rebel flower" or "rebellious flower" in French. But apparently, it's BACKWARDS.

In order to be correct, it SHOULD read, "Fleur Rebelle". To put it in egghead terms...In French, the noun comes before the qualifier. Woops!!

"Jersey Shore" mess NICOLE "SNOOKI" POLIZZI recently filed an application to trademark the name "Snooki" for print media...specifically, books...but the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office shot her down.

Apparently there's an existing trademark for "SNOOKY," which ends with a "Y" instead of an "I." That Snooky is a fictional cartoon cat, that lives underwater, from a kids' book called "Adventures of Snooky".

Despite the spelling difference, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office refused Snooki's request because of the, "likelihood of confusion" with a previous trademark. (Snooki does have the option of appealing the decision.)

Okay, this is silly...or maybe it's not. The wildly popular Bowling Proprietors' Association of America (???) did an online poll asking bowling fans to vote for the celebrity they think should be in the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame.

1.3 million people voted...and TAYLOR SWIFT came out on top. LOL! Teen stud JUSTIN BIEBER came second. Taylor was nominated after being seen several times bowling with celebrity friends like SELENA GOMEZ and "Glee's" CORY MONTEITH.

Pics? Yes!



Side note...I think Selena Gomez looks alot like Mila Kunis. I like both!


According to a new survey by TripAdvisor, almost HALF of Americans...48%...say they'd be willing to strip down, FULLY NAKED, at a nude beach.

TripAdvisor ran the same survey last year and only 31% of people were comfortable going full frontal. According to Amelie Hurst, a spokeswoman for TripAdvisor, the main reason people want to go to a nude beach ISN'T because they want to see a bunch of naked women without the cover charge and the two-drink minimum. (Really?)

No...she says most people want to go because, "The [beaches] often benefit from a lack of crowds and beautiful settings that can be enjoyed by any demographic."

Eh, I guess I get that.

Meanwhile, the people at the American Association of Nude Recreation are trying another pitch to get more travelers to participate in their naked vacations. They're reminding people that if you go on a nude vacation, you barely have to pack anything...so you can save a ton of money on airline BAG FEES.

I guess if you commit some kind of major crime and you HAVE to tell someone, you might as well get your face licked afterward. (???) According to a new survey, a pretty decent number of people tell their deepest, darkest secrets to their DOGS.

17% of women, or one in six, say they spill EVERYTHING to their dogs. (Uh...)
It's less common with men...only 10%, or one in 10, tell secrets to their dogs.

Side note: "Animals" by Nickelback is on the radio as I type this. Perfect!

14% of women also believe their dogs can READ THEIR MINDS. (The survey didn't say how many men believe that.)
25% of both genders say that their dog is their BEST FRIEND.

55% of people feel more relaxed after they spend time with their dogs...whether or not that time together involves sharing secrets.
44% say that petting their dog makes them feel more optimistic, and another 44% say that after they hang out with their dogs, they feel less tense about work and bills.

So I noticed the other day, a yellow "55 ahead" sign on 77 South just before the Fulton and Route 62 exits. That got me thinking...it used to drop to 55 before you hit Portage coming southbound. So I took to the facebook and asked if that had changed. Many comments say it indeed has, you can now go 65 almost all the way to Fulton! Very nice! Ashley says I need to pass the word along, as people are always still going the old speed thru there. I have to be honest, I was on there this morning and didn't even think about it. I guess you just get used to doing it one way and its hard to change the habit.

Have a great weekend!
