THe iSlaND of mIsFiT SoNGs

When it comes to radio, I’m better at some things than others. Keeping my mouth shut, wearing flattering clothes to station events, and not eating while broadcasting would be in the “others” category. But one thing at which I really excel is picking songs that are NEVER gonna be big hits.

All these songs have one thing in common: I LOVE them. They’re kind of songs I keep on infinite repeat on my Ipod. This is not to say I don’t also love lots of songs that do become humongous hits—just about anything recorded by Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, George Strait and Little Big Town come to mind.

Songs I detest, however, usually end up as massive, award-winning, please-God-don’t-make-me-play-it-again hits. No really—if I have to play that song again I’m gonna THROW MYSELF INTO THE WILLAMETTE WITHOUT PROTECTIVE GEAR.

Below are links to a just a few tunes that never made it huge, but are on my infinite playlist. You can click on the link to hear 'em if you want to. And you WANT to, trust me.

Mendocino County Line – Lee Ann Womack & Willie Nelson
Anything Goes – Randy Houser
Last Call – Lee Ann Womack
Relentless – Jason Aldean
Hell On Heels – Pistol Annies
Work Hard, Play Harder – Gretchen Wilson
Muddy Water – Trace Adkins

And by the way—what’s your favorite “misfit” song? Tell me in the comments below!

Today's What are You Kidding Me Stories of The Day

These are taken directly from the script that I write daily for these stories so they break every grammatical rule known to mankind!  

Out of Maryland … Cage Dancing
Tavon White doesn’t look like a sexy lady’s man but there is proof that this dude has got serious skills.  And the proof is…he has gotten 4 different ladies pregnant in just the last couple years.  Now you are thinking, that proves nothing…anyone can impregnate someone.  Yeah, but Tavon has been in jail for the last few years.  And the ladies he got pregnant were correction officers. 

Out of Pennsylvania … Timing is Everything
Michele and William Wanko have been married for some time, and some may say that their marriage has been somewhat rocky.  But everyone would agree that they like to get their drink on.  And this is a story of them doing just that, and I want you to decide who is the dumber of the two.  First you should know they had been drinking vodka and lemonade for about 6 hours when…when Michele says, “Willie, let’s get out your guns and you can teach me to shoot.”  Not so bright right?  But Willie says, “Why not" and they did just that.  Wille Wanko was 43.

Say it ain't so that they let Tim Tebow go!


Well we all saw it coming, the Jets released Tm Tebow today.  This after trading for him and then sitting him on the bench for a year. I for one hope another team picks him up, but at the time of writing this he is still on the sidelines.  His critics say he isn't a great quarterback, but they all agree that he is an incredible athlete.  So why not let him play another position?  I honestly don't know much about the inner workings of football, but it just seems Tebow should be somewhere doing something!   



Here is how The New York Times handled the story:

On Monday the Jets cut Tebow with no pomp, a victim of circumstance. They acknowledged an experiment gone awry with a news release that said, simply, “Jets waive QB Tim Tebow.” There was no mention in that release of Tebow’s statistics with the team, perhaps in part because there were none worth mentioning.

He was more afterthought than asset, more distraction than revelation, a decoy who played a greater role on special teams than behind center. As the Jets’ season unraveled, Tebow, frustrated and misled, emerged as a symbol of the franchise’s recklessness in assembling the roster: for two draft picks and $2.53 million – roughly $1.5 million of which is still owed to Denver – the Jets acquired a cross-cultural phenomenon who played only 77 offensive snaps, rushed 32 times for 102 yards and completed 6 of 8 passes. He did not score a touchdown.

Almost all of the organization’s principals, including the owner Woody Johnson, the former general manager Mike Tannenbaum, Coach Rex Ryan and the deposed offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, played a role in one of the more misguided and myopic moves in franchise history. Tebow joined the Jets on March 21, 2012, as a flawed quarterback at the zenith of his brief N.F.L. career, two months after leading the Denver Broncos to several late victories and an overtime playoff win against Pittsburgh. His arrival spawned many a breathless proclamation, none of which were fulfilled.

Instead of managing the situation so that Tebow, 25, would have an opportunity to evolve into a major contributor, as he had predicted, Ryan watched it devolve into a fiasco, with members of the organization feeling empowered to criticize Tebow anonymously.

Tannenbaum vowed that Tebow would make the Jets’ offense “diverse, more dynamic” and “more difficult for opposing teams to defend,” when instead he made it more predictable – as in, Tebow, on his rare snaps at quarterback, would only run up the middle. That was the domain of Sparano, whose familiarity with the wildcat formation and read-option obscured a lack of imagination and creativity that doomed the Jets’ offense. Johnson would later say that he was only joking when he noted that “you can never have enough Tebow,” but his words loomed over the team all season, especially when the Jets had no Tebow at all.

Tebow, to a degree, is not exempt from culpability. It was he, after all, who chose to accept the trade to the Jets rather than play for Jacksonville, where he was reared. But Tebow could not have predicted what awaited him in New York. The former special-teams coordinator Mike Westhoff, in a memorable radio interview after the season, called the Jets’ mishandling of Tebow “a mess, it was an absolute mess.”

Ever the diplomat, Tebow rarely showed his emotions publicly. He handled questions about the awkward predicament with Mark Sanchez, the starting quarterback, as deftly as the attention he received for being an outspoken Christian. Only toward the end of the season, when he was passed over when Ryan benched Sanchez in favor of the third-stringer Greg McElroy, did Tebow offer a glimpse of the frustration that had been long simmering. He knew then that a departure was inevitable, regardless of Johnson’s claim from October that Tebow would be with the Jets for all three years of his contract. And it was made all the more obvious Friday when the Jets drafted Geno Smith, raising the number of quarterbacks on their roster to six. With a potentially uncomfortable situation in the looming end of the Sanchez era, the Jets finally parted ways with Tebow.

“We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow,” Ryan said in a statement. “Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this off-season. We wish him the best moving forward.”

Tebow’s next destination is a topic of intrigue. The Jets showed foresight in wanting to maximize his versatility, by lining him up at tight end, in the slot and at running back, but all Tebow wants is to play quarterback in the N.F.L. If he is unwilling to consider a full-time position switch – and there is no telling whether that would be a prudent move – his options may be limited. No teams were interested when the Jets tried to trade Tebow, who must now clear waivers. Teams have until 4 p.m. Tuesday to register a claim for the most famous backup quarterback in the league.

Lingerie for Men

Is there ANY woman who fantasizes about her boyfriend or husband slipping into a thong, negligee, and lace cami?  Is there any woman in the WORLD who would be turned on by that?

There's a company in Australia that's hoping the answer is yes.  They're called HommeMystere, and they just released a line of LINGERIE FOR MEN.

But they didn't make ANY effort to give the lingerie a masculine twist . . . other than making it in men's sizes.  It's mostly pink.  It contains lace and bows and hearts.  It includes teddies, camisoles, thongs, negligees . . . and even padded man-bras.

The company is hoping this CHANGES the way men look at underwear.

They believe men who try their product will find, quote, "comfortable men's panties that really do fit, bra straps that don't fall off the shoulder, [and] teddies that don't ride up halfway through the night."

The products cost around $25 for a pair of men's panties, $32 for a men's bra, and $50 for men's lingerie.

Who will play in Fifty Shades of Grey the movie?



I have copied and pasted the information below from The Sip, which lets you ladies know who is up for the roles in the upcoming movie for the very saucy "Fifty Shades of Grey."  Now, before I get hate mail please NOTE that I have not read the book, but I have been told it is very naughty!  So this is not an endorsement of the book or the movie, but simply me passing on information.  Please click like and share my blog! :)

 

 

From The Sip:
Slowly, but surely, more details are emerging about the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. It almost seems like the producers themselves are getting antsy! Because now, after hearing for months who fans want to play the lead roles, we're hearing who the suits behind the flick may be hoping to cast.

Yesterday, we caught wind of Alex Pettyferbeing the closest thing to a legit contender for Christian Grey -- thanks to director Gus Van Sant -- and today ... HollywoodLife.com is reporting that "an insider VERY close to the production" says if producers Dana Brunetti and Michael De Luca have their way, Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence will step into the role of Anastasia Steele. This insider also spilled on the production schedule and location ...

Apparently, they'll begin rolling in London (whaaa??) in a year -- as in spring 2014. Guess we can kiss that rumored summer 2014 release date goodbye. Not that surprising, though, being that they don't even have a script, and filming/post-production can take a year or more. That said, if this is true, seems as though we'll be seeing Christian and Ana on the big screen in 2015. Maybe!  And Jennifer Lawrence as Ana, eh? Sounds like the producers are just itching to work with her, because she's A Name and they want to bring Fifty Shades to the next level with some serious talent. I don't blame them, but at the same time, is she really the right fit? I'm not seeing it. Maybe as Kate Kavanaugh, but not as innocent, naive Ana. She may be the right age, but she comes off as too mature, edgy, sarcastic. Plus, she's got plenty on her plate with theHunger Games trilogy. Will she even be done playing Katniss by the time this starts filming? Doubtful.

But hey, if she does nab the part, they could do worse than a twice-nominated, once awarded Oscar-worthy actress!

Could YOU really have PTSD?

I have recently learned that there are far more people walking around with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) than I realized. Yes, we all realize that someone who has gone to war or witnessed a terrorist attack could easilyl have PTSD, but what about the average citizen?  I know this sounds dramatic, but we all go through traumatic experiences in our lifetime.  It can be anything from abuse or bullying that someone suffered as a child to being diagnosed with a specific illness.  PTSD can hit those who lost someone they cared about as a child or an adult, and it can even present itself after a car accident.  

Below you will see that I copy and pasted the symptoms from WebMD to help educate all of us.  If you or someone you know know has PTSD then it is important for you to find a good counselor to help you work through the pain and fear that you may be stuffing away.  When we stuff the pain away it may eventually make its way back into our lives either through anxiety, depression, or even an addiction.  

Symptoms of PTSD:

Reliving the event

Bad memories of the traumatic event can come back at any time. You may feel the same fear and horror you did when the event took place. You may feel like you're going through the event again. This is called a flashback. Sometimes there is a trigger: a sound or sight that causes you to relive the event. Triggers might include:

  • Hearing a car backfire, which can bring back memories of gunfire and war for a combat veteran.
  • Seeing a car accident, which can remind a crash survivor of his or her own accident.
  • Seeing a news report of a sexual assault, which may bring back memories of assault for a woman who was raped.

Avoiding situations that remind you of the event

You may try to avoid situations or people that trigger memories of the traumatic event. You may even avoid talking or thinking about the event.

  • A person who was in an earthquake may avoid watching television shows or movies in which there are earthquakes.
  • A person who was robbed at gunpoint while ordering at a hamburger drive-in may avoid fast-food restaurants.
  • Some people may keep very busy or avoid seeking help. This keeps them from having to think or talk about the event.

Feeling numb

You may find it hard to express your feelings. This is another way to avoid memories.

  • You may not have positive or loving feelings toward other people and may stay away from relationships.
  • You may not be interested in activities you used to enjoy.
  • You may forget about parts of the traumatic event or not be able to talk about them.

Feeling keyed up

You may be alert and on the lookout for danger. This is known as increased emotional arousal. It can cause you to:

  • Suddenly become angry or irritable.
  • Have a hard time sleeping.
  • Have trouble concentrating.
  • Fear for your safety and always feel on guard.
  • Be very startled when someone surprises you.

How about this weather?

Yes we have long dark winters here, but when the sun appears we realize that we live in paradise!  And get ready for another couple of beautiful days according to NWCN:
 
Another cold start to the morning across parts of the Pacific Northwest with temps in the teens, 20s and 30s. The coldest readings should occur between 4am and 7am in lower Columbia basin of Oregon and Washington, in Yakima Valley and in the Foothills. Then, the heat is on as we go from warm to warmer!

Highs will range from the low 60s to upper 70s.

High pressure will continue to protect us from storms, while promoting offshore winds and sunny skies for the next few days. 

A push of ocean air will cool western Washington down on Thursday, though the rest of the region will stay mainly sunny. Rain free days will extend into the first part of the day Saturday. Then, look for an increasing chance of rain Saturday evening and on Sunday.
