STEVE THE PRODUCER


STP's BLOG 07/02/12 "The American Dream!"

So over the weekend BJ & Mono-Nick were at the Mariners games since the red Sox were in town. I wasn’t there, but I did get this Tweet from Katie…she is a great listener of the show (and of the STP-CAST), and she was there showing support for our new shirt (which can be found in the Rock Shop at KISW.com)…check it out:

#BLD!

I was at home…watching something far more entertaining on TV…WWE 24/7 On Demand on X-FINITY. They had a great documentary on “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes. Man, I forgot how great The Dream was…not only in the ring, but on the microphone. This clip is over 20 years old…but I’m ready to vote for him for president on this clip alone!



There is a new show on HBO called The Newsroom, which is about a fictional news channel. Jeff Daniels stars as anchor Will McAvoy, and in the first episode, the show created a buzz because of a scene where his character says that, “America’s not the greatest country in the world anymore.” Daniels character was asked by a college student why America is the best country in the world and here is his response:



Worst Period Generation Period Ever Period. That is a classic line!

Based on this clip from The Newsroom where Jeff Daniels character says that America is not the greatest country in the world anymore…what do you think? Is America the greatest country? Why or why not? Here are some of the Texts we got:

We are the best cause we can have a show that can and will point out our countrys faults and failures. Jason in port orchard.

America is back to back world war champions.. Thats why were number one

America is the greatest nation in the world because of our freedom to choose idiocy.

BJ we are the most powerful country in the whole world. We have the best base from our founders also have volunteers to literally die for our country. No one else has that. Freedom, we have the most freedom in the world. That's power.

Will mcavoy's feelings mirror my own. We have so many problems we don't know where to start. -Steve the Weatherman

Of course we are. We created buffalo wild wing and laser tag. Next. -the DV

Sure, statistically we suck, but one thing that makes us great is that we have a lot of rights that other countries cannot do, such as free speech

We were the greatest country until the god damn hippies came. The counter culture set us back decades in progress in raising kids and moving forward

The mere fact that statements like that can be made without fear of reprisal proves to me we are the greatest nation in the world. As a military veteran of more than 20 years I have been to many countries where statements like that could lead to incarceration or worse. Just knowing we have that guaranteed freedom speaks for itself. David from Gig Harbor

I think we are slipping. Because a great portion of the public want things givin to them. And the kids today think they are entitled to everything. Very few are willing to work for what they want. Come on step up and take responsablitiy for yourself!

Come on everyone. We used to be the best but that time has gone . . I personaly feel we are headed for a future of misery in this country. We are probably closer to the third greatest. But the whole world will eventualy be destroyed anyway. So i say get a comfortable chair and watch. And while you are waiting listen to Kisw ;{


Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee would like his fans to know two things: He LOVES you . . . but NO, he won't take a picture with you. Seriously. So stop askin'. Tommy explained his rationale in a long post on the band's Facebook page. Basically it boils down to this: He says, "I f****** LOVE my fans! . . . What I have a problem with is: Taking pictures! I hate it! [It] irritates the f*** out of me when people say 'You owe it to your fans, they put you where you are.’ I certainly don't owe anybody anything! When I bought all my Led Zeppelin records and concert tickets, I didn't say, 'One day these f****** are gonna owe me a picture. It's the least they can do for me!' What the f***, people? I'm not here to take pictures with you, I'm here to entertain you! Nobody put me where I am but ME! . . . What I do owe myself and others is being THE BEST I can be! People do we really need a silly picture? For what bragging rights? Really? Who f***** cares!"

I kind of understand where he is coming from, although I think he is a douche for thinking like that. I am not an autograph kind of guy, but I do like getting pix with celebrities I like…I makes for a great way to document a cool moment. The funny thing is that I once had a picture with Tommy Lee, and I was so stoked I had it…until some crack head broke into my car, and stole a bag out of my car that had the picture in it. This was from the olden days when you didn’ty have a Myspace or Facebook to post them on…it was a picture I just developed too! Now I’m screwed…Tommy doesn’t like getting pictures taken with him!!! That is one of my favorite parts of the job, is that I have had the fortunate opportunity to meet some of my all time celebrities…so I figured I would share some of them with you…

First of…I know this is shocking…but a lot of my favorite poictures are with wrestlers! I grew up and still am a huge WWE fan…so any chance to meet a past or current Superstar is pretty damn awesome…this one is a huge fave as I got to hold the championship belt…with Daniel Bryan:

Of all the pix with wrassler’s this one stands out…it was with Jake The Snake Roberts…I asked him to jokingly choke me, but I have to say, he still applied quite a grip:

Meeting the Hulkster was a surreal experience…

Photobucket

John Cena couldn’t have been a nicer dude:

Photobucket

Meeting my favorite rock stars has been high on my list too…this one takes the cake. Being a huge Guns N’ Roses fan…getting to meet my drumming idol, Steven Adler was an awesome moment!

Photobucket

I grew up loving Metallica, and I am still a fan…getting to spend some time with Lars & Kirk was pretty damn cool:


Photobucket

Since High School, I have been a huge fan of Alice In Chains…so the fact that I got to interview and watch them perform on the side of the stage one night was like I was in a dream…here I am with my wife, and one of the coolest bands ever!

Photobucket

There have been a few film stars that have walked in the studios…and this one was my all time fave…it’s Dewey Cox after all…John C. Reilly:

Photobucket

One night I hosted a Q & A for the film Get him To The Greek, and afterwards I got to hang with Russell Brand, and to this day I say he was the nicest & coolest Hollywood guy I have met!

Photobucket

Speaking of film stars…these ladies we also a lot of fun to have in studio…Stoya, Riley Steele, and Jesse Jane!

Photobucket

But of all of the celebrities I have met…none will compare to meeting the IHOP Pancake!

Photobucket

Our intern Daron has a cool picture…he got to meet Roger Daltry of The Who!

Photobucket

So, Tommy Lee says he doesn’t want to have his picture taken with you…based on this…when have you been blown off by a celebrity…or…what is the coolest picture you have with a celebrity? Here are the texts we got:

Have a picture beating chuck liddel in a arm wrestling match in a vegas bar he bought me a shot after real cool guy, I've always looked up to him

I met billie joe in tac. Was a bit drunk and asked for a guitar. Amazingly i now have it on my wall!

Took a pic back in 2002 with leeann tweeden and her breast were right next to my face awesome

My wallpaper in my desktop is a picture of me with Bruce Boxleitner, who played the original Tron. It's signed by him: "I fight for the users." -the DV

Had a pic of me with Ric Flair, I'm holding his title belt, and were both doing the 4 fingers up! mom threw out my wrestling stuff wen I moved out. Jason#1

I got a pic of me at 7 on Bruce Campbell lap for briscoe county jr and I was the only one to ware his hat!

Randy Johnson. I asked him to sign a bottle of pro-active! He called me a “d” and wouldn't sign it. Bill Cosby was rad. I got a great pic with him

I was in Vegas and saw jenna jameson tedo ortees and the ice man chuck ladel, it was a little intimating to aproch the table as soon as the ice man got up I walked over and asked for a pic with him he said sure it was at the pink Taco hard rock hotel btw jenna looked like crap in real life.

Ran into george forman and bill murry in a elevator in reno, forman was cool as hell and did photos murry was a total douche!!! <Dave Z>
