HUGE thanks to everyone that swung by Verizon Wireless at the Bellevue Square Mall yesterday…it was great hanging with everyone…hell, even BJ swung by!!! Russell Okung from the Hawks was there too, and without question, Russell is my new favorite Hawk…he couldn’t have been a nicer guy. Seriously, the dude is super cool. He’s a big fella too…makes sense since he’s on the Offensive Line…Here I am with Russell:
When Russell found out we were on the radio, he asked if he could come in and watch one morning...uhhh…hell yeah Russell, we would love to have you on the show! Let’s hope #76 joins us on the show.
Ladies & Gentlemen…here is the text of the day…it came in at 6:38:
Hey im a truck driver at the piers n seattle and i have a whore n my truck shes giving me **** now
I read this on air…and all I could think is that if the guy texted this, that means he was listening, which means that the whore was listening too (not talking, based on the text – waka waka)…so I had to say hi to her through the radio, “Hi Whore.”
Scientists, sound therapists, and an electronica band called Marconi Union have teamed up to create what they say is the most relaxing song ever written. It's called "Weightless," it's eight minutes long, and they say it's so good at making people fall asleep, that you should NOT listen to it in your car. Their studies found that it relaxed people even more than a MASSAGE. Here's the song…don’t fall asleep!
I’m sorry…do we really call this music? It’s more like sounds. You know when a band writes a cool song, the guy that came up with the riff will show it off to his band mates in excitement …what happened when Marconi Union came up with this gem…do you think he was like, he guys, check this out: booooooooooooooooooop…..uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhmp….deeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich turned down the chance to score a major motion picture. He tells Newsweek that Quentin Tarantino wrote the fight scenes in Kill Bill to Metallica’s songs “Enter Sandman” and “Sad But True,” and wanted Ulrich to score some original music for the movie. Lars turned it down saying he felt the script was, quote, “out of my realm of understanding.” So does he regret his chance to be part of film history? He says, quote, “it’s the single biggest mistake I’ve made in the creative department.” Metallica and Lou Reed’s new album, Lulu, is out on November 1st.
Lars Ulrich says turning down the chance to score the music to Kill Bill was the single biggest mistake he’s made in the creative department…what about you? Looking back on your life…What is the single biggest mistake you have made? Here are some of the texts we got:

There's a lot of cool John Lennon memorabilia that you may wish you had the money to buy, but would you buy his tooth? The tooth is being auctioned off in England on November 5th. It's expected to command at least $16,000. John gave it to his housekeeper in the late '60s. He told her she could give it to her daughter "as a souvenir." Check out a pic of the tooth.
