Yesterday was a rough day as word came out that Mike Starr, former bassist of Alice In Chains, was found dead in his home in Salt lake City at the young age of 44. No word as of yet as to why he died, but sadly there is a good chance that drugs had something to do with it. Mike was recently back in the eye of the public on Dr. Drew’s show Celebrity Rehab, and many of us watched Mike battle his heroin addiction and it seemed like he was going down the sober path. That is until last month when we heard that he was busted for having Xanax & pain pills in his possession. After hearing that story, I hoped that he would pick back up & get back on the wagon, but sadly this isn’t Hollywood & life doesn’t always have a happy ending. All I would hope is that he is at peace, as it seems like his adult years were full of pain. If you believe in a afterlife, you gotta think that him & Layne are jamming again! Here is Mike playing with Alice…this was from a really cool live VHS (yes, I still have a copy of this) that came out with Facelift (their first album) called Live Facelift. One of my all time fave AIC songs…It Ain’t Like That:
I have to share this clip too…this is one of the most intense performances from any band if you ask me…I remember watching this performance as a teen, and my jaw dropped…especially at the end…so powerful:
So E.T. was voted for having the greatest movie moment of all time…the part where he says goodbye & is off in the spaceship. I call B.S. to that…the greatest moment is when Rocky tells Adrian that he did it…the Yo Adrian moment! A close second if you ask me is Miracle, the story of the 1980 US Olympic Hockey Team, when Herb Brooks gives his powerful speech before they play the Russians. Plus that scene inspired this great You Tube video where a kid re-interpreted the scene:
Ok…here is the real version…so awesome!!!!
Here is the top 10…
1. "ET", 1982. ET says goodbye to his friends and heads home in a spaceship.
2. "Toy Story 3", 2010. The toys hold hands and face their fate as they edge closer to the incinerator.
3. "Rocky", 1976. Rocky's title fight.
4. "Bambi", 1942. The death of Bambi's mother.
5. "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid", 1969. Butch and Sundance leap out of their bunker, guns blazing.
6. "The Wizard of Oz", 1939. Dorothy opens the door in her black-and-white house and steps into the colorful world of Oz.
7. "Battleship Potemkin", 1925. The "Odessa steps" massacre.
8. "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington", 1939. The filibuster scene where JIMMY STEWART shouts, quote, "I'm gonna stay right here and fight for this lost cause."
9. "Network", 1976. When the news anchor shouts, "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!"
10. "Miracle in Milan", 1951. The final scene when Toto and his friends rise into the sky on brooms. (???)

Today’s Video Blog features another installment of the Intern Challenge. Tahiti Steve hit the streets to see if he could convince a guy to kiss him…this all stems from a British study that said 9 out of 10 straight guys in college have kissed another guy. So we sent Steve to Seattle Central in the Capitol Hill area to see if he could convince a male college student to kiss him.
