What a weekend…my beer league hockey team, the Donkeys had a big win! If you look closely, you can see me between the pipes right there!
Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/TacomaDonkeys . If you do, you would have seen a hilarious Tweet that we posted on our page…it was an exchange between someone going to Emerald City Comic Con and the Seattle Police Department.
Whoever is running the SPD twitter is a genius…that was too damn funny!
Many people (including Vicky and BJ) had a great time at ECCC, I had a great time watching hockey all day yesterday (what a great game on NBC yesterday morning between the Blackhawks and the Redwings), but no one had as awesome of a weekend as Topshelf. This morning we learned that on Saturday he got drunk and watched a bunch of Stone Cold Steve Austin, and on Sunday he used a chainsaw (sober) for the first time. How do I know that? Well, yesterday I got a text from Toppy…and it was this video! I have to say, I was so entertained by this video that I watched it 4 times. Toppy has the POWER!
Also this weekend…a few Seattleites had an awesome…I mean “Eff’ing Awesome” weekend…Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, Wanz, Ray Dalton, etc…as they were on Saturday Night Live. Man they knocked it out of the park with their 2 songs…if you missed it, here is Thrift Shop:
Here they are preforming "Can’t Hold Us":
That song actually gave me goosebumps at about 2:20 into the video…when Mack raised his arm us as he rapped:
Raise those hands, this is our party
We came here to live life like nobody was watching
I got my city right behind me
If I fall, they got me, learn from that failure gain humility and then we keep marching ourselves.
For some reason that line hit me…whether you are a fan of rap or not…you have to respect the rise of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis…home grown…doing it on their own…refusing to sacrifice their art for dollars, and success has come their way…they are representing Seattle in a great light in the musical world. That line is a great nod to the Northwest!
If you don’t know…I am on a quest on my podcast to get Macklemore & Ryan Lewis to come in to be interviewed and perform. We are encouraging people to tweet @Macklemore and @RyanLewis to join @STP999 with the hash tag:
Help spread the word…we are trying to make this happen purely through Twitter…why? No reason…just something we started talking about a little over a month ago and thought it would be awesome if it happened! The word is getting out there…as Wanz (the dude that sings the hook on Thrift Shop) retweeted something I wrote him and the fellas:
Seven-year-old Josh Welch from Baltimore, Maryland was suspended from school for two days . . . because he ate a strawberry Pop-Tart that the school said was shaped like a gun. Apparently, Josh was biting into it, and trying to shape it like a mountain, but his teacher freaked out when she thought the shape was too close to a gun.
In an interview with Josh where he talked about what happened, he said he kept biting and biting into it, trying to make a mountain, but he could never make the shape . . . and it turned out to be a gun. This is crazy…man we have become a hyper-sensitive society!
Based on this story…Looking back on your academic life…why did you get suspended…or in trouble? Here are some of the texts we got:
In kindergarten, was playing with the pay phone, dialed 911, didn't know it would work without a quarter. Got suspended for a week.
5 days for mooning the schoolbus in 6th grade
Got detention for saying 'sucks'. Teacher, yes female, demanded we say hoover if we wanted to say that. Funny part? Soon as I said it teacher wrote me up, my friend said 'that sucks'... Thus joined me in detention.
For glueing all the chairs to the desk and the tables to the floor, I was a second grader on detention
I was suspended for drinking a 40 Oz my first day of 10th grade
My friend got suspended for drawing boobs and a penis in class
