BJ'S BLOG 07/31/15 "Mean On Twitter"

A Rock-A-Holic in need is never alone in Group Therapy! Come on in, and get some help from your own people!

We heard from Wendy, who needs some help with a problem that spans from her workplace to the internet. Wendy recently found out that a coworker has a Twitter account, and she checked it out. It turns out the coworker's Twitter feed is full of weird tweets about Wendy, and this isn't just paranoia: some of the posts even mention her by name! Wendy and the coworker aren't close friends, but they have a cordial working relationship; she had no idea her officemate felt that way.

(Are you new here? We never say things to your face in the Pacific Northwest!)

Wendy doesn't think that the coworker realizes her account is public, and now Wendy can't stop looking. Unfortunately, I think that would be the case for anyone in this situation; if you know there could be something new being written about you – even if it's horrible – you can't resist checking it out.

Wendy is hurt by the whole thing, and she wonders if she should tell her boss. Honestly, I don't think that's a terrible idea, but it's hard to gauge the drama that might follow that reveal, because I don't know her workplace situation. That being said, the co-worker is an idiot for naming her in public, so I think she deserves whatever she gets.

(Hey, you could always start re-Tweeting her posts about you, for ultimate passive-aggression. )

We'd love to hear your advice for Wendy, good people! Should she confront her coworker, tell her boss, or just let it go! Sound off!

Steve Migs Blog 07/31/15 "Learn To Fly"

I don't know what's happening to me…but some random stuff puts me in an emotional state. Yesterday I came across a video that made me tear up a little bit… this video just confirms my love and passion for music. The joy you will see in the faces of everyone singing and playing is giving me goose bumps as I type this. That feeling I see on their face is the feeling I have when I jam on the drums with my buds!

A guy in Italy is trying to convince the Foo Fighters in his town. So for the past year he has been working on this huge event – to have 1000 people perfom the song "Learn To Fly". Watch and enjoy!



I don't know if you caught the guy on the drums at about 1:12 into that video, but as I was watching the video I was saying to myself, "damn…I wish I could have been there" and then BAM…my twin brother appears on the screen. That was pretty trippy to see!

Happy Seafair Weekend everyone! The weather is going to be great…the Blue Angels are here! I came across this amazing photo on Twitter… This would be an awesome picture framed on a wall!

Steve Migs Blog 07/31/15 "Russell... YES!"

This was the best news to come down during our show... Russell Wilson just signed a new deal for a TON of money! Seeing this tweet made me jump for joy... seriously... I jumped up and down in excitement while on the air!


How excited am I? Right before we started Beat Migs I read Russell's tweet confirming the news...

Heat and sun 7/30/15

I love to blog about weather because I really like weather and trying to predict it. If I could choose another profession outside of radio it would definitely be the weather man for some local channel somewhere. My big question is world I like to work in a place like San Diego where the weather is almost always the same or work somewhere the weather is different all the time. I like the idea of predicting a big snow storm and telling kids they have the next day off of school. When I was a kid growing up in Maryland I used to love watching the weather when it came to snow storms. It is probably why I still watch the weather. I used to like the old weather channel which was just radar and some stats. My brother Chris and I always took pride in knowing how big or small the snow totals would be for a specific storm. I never realized how much I liked weather until a few years ago at a festival I explained to my buddy why the thunderstorms that night were going to be big and he looked at me like how do you know that? This weekend the heat and sun return to the Pacific Northwest, put on that sunscreen and drink water. Clearly a few other cold beverages is in my plans as well but just make sure you get some water and sunscreen. Waking up hung over and sunburned sucks.

Steve Migs Blog 7/30/15 "Drunk Friend!"

Here's a new fun game you can play with your drunk friends! Some guy fell asleep in the backseat of a car, so his friends decided to see how many Twizzlers they could stick in his mouth without waking him up.

They managed to fit 11 in there...yes, ELEVEN...plus two in his glasses before he woke up…

BJ'S BLOG 07/30/15 "Mean On Facebook"

The internet is a great place, full of wonderful people who want nothing more than to lift your spirits and boost your confidence.

Well…that's usually how it is on Group Therapy, anyway. I can't really speak for the rest of the internet.

When it comes to people exhibiting questionable human interaction skills, you can always count on Facebook. Our own Vicky Barcelona could go on forever about the weird and bizarre encounters she's had via social media, and today's tidbit comes from her Facebook message inbox…

Recently, she received several fairly polite (but unsolicited, which is kind of creepy) messages from a guy she doesn't know. He was very complimentary toward her, commenting on her attractiveness and asking about her relationship status. She didn't respond immediately, which was apparently an insult to her admirer. After a few days, she received another message from him, this one assaulting her at full blast with comments about everything from her perceived lack of manners, to her physical appearance, which he was extremely rude about.

I've never been able to understand what it is about social media that makes people think they have the right to engage with people in whichever manner they choose, especially when the person on the receiving end is a woman. It's really no different from catcalls and whistles in real life, and it irritates the hell out of me to know that Vicky – and countless other females – should have to endure that. Get a life, jerks.

Steve Migs Blog 07/29/15 "Rainier On Pine"

Yesterday The Migs Cast went on a road trip to visit one of Washington's recreational pot shop… Rainier On Pine in Tacoma.

This was basically like parents (Rev and I) taking a son (Nick) to the greatest toy store in the world. Nick was like a kid in a candy shop. Thanks to Donnie for inviting us by after we interviewed him on a recent episode of The Migs Cast!




If you missed that interview… check it out here.



Huge thanks to the rest of the crew at Rainier On Pine: Liz, Jeff, John, and Brian – your passion for the product was a blast to be around…it was fun to learn about the different ways people use marijuana…from smoking it…to drops…to edibles…to lotions to help with ailments, it was beyond informative. Plus my favorite nugget of info…when it comes to the affect of Indica weed as opposed to Sativa… Indica = In-Da-Couch!

BJ'S BLOG 07/29/15 "Best Man Hates the Bride-To-Be"

Welcome back, Rock-A-Holics! Before we begin, I'd like to remind you all that we value your sincere and honest feelings in Group Therapy, so don't hold back...because we certainly don't!

By the way, I don't like that shirt on you. Sorry.

Today's patient-in-need is Kenny, who is all set to be the best man at his cousin's wedding. Kenny and his cousin have always been the best of friends, but there's just one problem…Kenny seriously HATES his cousin's fiance! He just doesn't like this woman, and the fact that this marriage is following a mere 8 months of dating is adding fuel to the fire.

The cousin doesn't know about Kenny's feelings toward the bride-to-be, which makes this next bit even more awkward: during a recent conversation, the cousin asked if Kenny dislikes his fiance. Kenny lied and gave her the stamp of approval, but then the cousin said that he was asking because he values Kenny's opinion, and wanted to make sure that he didn't have any reservations about the woman he's planning to marry.

Now, Kenny's feeling conflicted, and his wife says he should step up and share his feelings before it's too late. Kenny's friends, who ALSO hate this woman, have advised him to stay out of it.

I don't know the ages of the happy couple – and I don't know the woman, of course -- but I think eight months of dating seems like a pretty short road to marriage. What's the hurry? Honestly, I think you could use the idea of "too soon" as a way to lead your cousin in a more thoughtful direction about his life choices. Plus, it might open the door toward some more direct conversation about your feelings toward the bride.

That's just my opinion. Maybe you agree, or maybe you think I'm crazy…so let's hear what you have to say on the subject, gang! How soon is too soon? And more importantly, how should Kenny tackle this sensitive subject with his cousin?

BJ'S BLOG 07/28/15 "Sex Before Vacation?"

It's Group Therapy, where Rock-A-Holics help their own kind with a situation that's too big for one person to tackle alone!

Christy is a Bothell native who now lives in L.A., and she's stayed loyal to our little radio show. For that, we must show our immense appreciation! Christy has been dating a new guy for about three weeks. He's a TV writer, which seems like unnecessary information, but it actually has some bearing on the situation, as you'll learn shortly. Things are going so well, she's moving slow…and hasn't slept with him yet. It's not that she doesn't want to, but she likes him so much that she's taking a different approach from her usual relationship M.O.

(I don't understand a woman taking things slow sexually when she's trying to keep her new guy, but let's keep going....)

Here's the thing: the boyfriend's TV show is going on hiatus for the summer, so he is taking a month off to go on tour with a friend's band. Christy is wondering if she should seal the deal before he leaves.

Let's hear it from you, good people! I'd love to get some opinions on this conundrum, especially from the ladies…but as always, we're open to thoughts from anyone!

Steve Migs Blog 07/28/15 "Doing The Whip and The Nae Nae"

Yesterday I shared my experience at the Motley Crue show. I don't think anyone's experience could top my bud Jean-Marcus and everyone else that was fortunate enough to sit on the mini stage that Motley Crue had set up by the sound board for their encore. Check out this sweet video my bud posted…it's an incredible perspective!

MÖTLEY CRÜE encore of "Home Sweet Home" that I filmed from the elevated platform "Crües Nest" stage. 7.24.15. Once in a lifetime memory right there.

Posted by Jean-Marcus Strole on Monday, July 27, 2015


This week on The MegaCast, we learn how to "Whip" and "Nae Nae"...as we plan on busting these dance moves out while in attendance at Monday Night Raw. Thanks to Tanch from HOT 103.7 for being our "teacher".



Check out this week's episode of The MegaCast here:



While listening to this week's episode, we play audio from this cop with a crazy warning message to a crook. Here is the video so that you can play along!
