This morning we played the audio of Ellen pranking Jake Gyllenhaal…again! She had a guy dressed as a doll hide in a box next to Jake's chair, but the box looked like a table. Then in the middle of the interview, the guy jumped out, and Jake let out an F-bomb…this is too funny!
BJ hated this… A. Because he doesn’t like fun, and 2. Because BJ hates pranks. I’m not a big fan of pranks either, but clearly Jake doesn’t mind…he’s been pranked before and keeps coming back on Ellen’s show…so if Bubble Boy did like it, he knows how to quit it! Sorry…the Bubble Boy “joke” was bad enough…that Broke Back Mountain (“I wish I knew How To Quit You”) pun was way below par! You have my apologies.
We got a text about Ellen while we were talking about her…
You guys have to watch the video of Ellen's producer going through a haunted house. Its hilarious
I haven’t seen this yet…so let’s watch it together.
This inspired me to start a twitter campain… #STPonELLEN . Lets do it!
I’m going to get on my soap box for a second, if you don’t mind. This needs to be addressed, as Friday is the day people hit the streets with their pumpkin shaped bucket…or a bag…going door to door for some candy.
Who really likes Candy Corn?
Could there be a more P.O.S. candy out there? C’mon…if it was THAT good…people would be buying it year round. It’s so crappy it’s only around for one “holiday”. Eff Candy Korn…it taste like slightly flavored wax. If it’s not good enough for the rest of the year, it’s not good for me … EVER!
Thant being said…if you have ever been curious as to how they make Candy Corn…here you go…
Have you watched this new series on HBO called “Sonic Highways”…it’s a show about the making of the new Foo Fighters record, and it is beyond incredible! The basic premise is that Dave and the gang travel to a few different cities that are rich in musical culture…they talk to some of the local legends, set up at a popular recording studio in that city and write and record new music. It’s fascinating to see how the city and it’s “vibe” will influence the music.
The first episode was all about Chicago…they were immersed in the blues, chatted with Buddy Guy…and they also spent time with Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick (amongst other artists) and power pop rock was definitely discussed. The song that came out of that was “Something From Nothing”, and Rick from Cheap trick even laid down some guitar parts on the song. At the end of the episode they have a video for the song…check this one out, and trust me…after you watch the show you will love this song even more!
Episode 2 is all about the Washington D.C. punk scene…heavily focusing on Bad Brains, as well as Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye. I LOVED this episode as Dave is deep rooted in this scene (he was in a DC punk band called Scream before he joined Nirvana). It was cool seeing old footage of Dave, as well as learn a lot about an incredibly influential scene! The song that came from it truly blew me away…I must’ve listened to it 10 times this morning. I can’t find the video of the song that ends the episode, but here is the song, “Feast And The Famine”:
Finally…have you had a chance to check out what Larry King is doing these days? He is posting random thoughts on Twitter, and they are AWESOME! Check out some of the more recent ones:
Man…I don’t usually get heavy or serious in my blogs, but I…like probably many of you…still can’t make sense of what happened at Marysville-Pilchuck High School on Friday.
My thoughts and prayers have been with everyone affected, and will continue to do so…it’s tough one to digest. I won’t bore you with my opinions on this (and shame on those that are using this to push some political agenda…let people heal please), other than that High School is a tough time…it’s not always fun and it might seem to be the be all / end all, but it’s not.
The one thing I wanted to highlight is a teacher that proves that during a insanely scary time, true heroes arise. Megan Silberberger is a first year teacher and when she heard the shots, she didn’t run…which understandably is the first reaction for many, instead she ran to the shooter and from all the reports I read…she stopped what could have been an even more tragic scene.
You can read all about it HERE. Take a second to do so, and lets all be thankful that a woman like Megan Silberberger was there.
Yesterday I was given awful…awful news. It even pains me to write about it. I got this alert on my email…
ONE DIRECTION ANNOUNCE EUROPEAN AND NORTH AMERICAN DATES FOR THE WORLDWIDE ON THE ROAD AGAIN 2015 STADIUM TOUR
Seattle, WA – CenturyLink Field
Wednesday, July 15, 2015
When I think of some of the bands that have taken the stage at Century Link / Qwest Field…I think of Metallica...I think of The Rolling Stones…I surely don’t think of One D. It felt like someone kicked me in my “One D”.
Isn’t there something Paul Allen can do? Can’t Russell Wilson pull a favor and have something else scheduled? Anything…hell even a dog race would be better! We got a few texts about it…
Hey STP - At least on the bright-side, you know it's going to pour down rain at the one direction concert. ;) –Shane
If Ted Nugent can be banned from a venue in our state those assclowns can too
This morning I was finally fed up with BJ. What did he do?
--Was it one of his religious rants? Nope.
--Was he giving me a hard time about my love for my pup? Nope.
--Was it his stance on relationships in general? Nope.
It was the way he abbreviates the word PIZZA. For years now, whenever we talk about getting pizza…he says “ZA”. Yes, he shortens it to “ZA”. Look…Pizza is 5 letters, it doesn’t need to be shortened…and even if it did…saying ZA is easily once of the dumbest things I have ever heard.
On Urban Dictionary, they sum it up best…
Really obnoxious word for pizza, that no self-respecting person uses.
Speaking of Pizza…or ZA…have you seen the new Pretzel Crust Pizza that Little Caesars has? They combined two of my all time favorite things into one meal of awesome-ness!
I haven’t tried it yet (man it’s 7 am as I type this…I wish they were open for breakfast), but Mono-Nick has tried it, and he says that it’s awesome! He didn’t say it’s “The Bomb” or even worse… “The Bomb Dot Com”, because only stupid people that say “ZA” would say something like that!
This is a great story…before Game One of the World Series on Tuesday, the wife of Royals pitcher Wade Davis was at a restaurant in Kansas City, and instead of tipping her waiter…she gave him a free ticket to that night's game.
We wound up getting a bunch of great calls and texts from listeners about the non-monetary tips they have received…
In 2001 a guy gave me a pair of Sonics tickets for being the best garbage man!
I was working at a golf course and this old man gave me a nice bottle of wine. I I think he wanted to do me but oh well got some wine. Evan from Olympia
I mowed my neighbors lawn for about a month because she broke her ankle and she was the hottest girl I've ever seen. After the month or so she gave me oral negotiations! Best day ever.
I worked at a fast food place, and a girl came thru the drive thru and said I was hot & when I got off she was in the parking lot…and we did the dirty in her car
A deaf guy handed me a bunch of weed for filling the chocolate milk for him while working in a dairy Cooler. It was awesome
Delivering pizza I was offered hard alcohol, given beer, offered and given weed... And someone once offered me acid...
I was working nights at the Tyee Hotel in Tumwater in the 90's when BB King's tour bus showed up. They were too tired to make it to Seattle. Was tipped with a pair of comp tickets to the concert the next night for helping them out. Awesome blues experience!
When I was a bikini barista this is very religious man drove up and threw a Bible at me and told me to get out of town that from Cristina in Kent
Was doing the irrigation on a house and Peyton Manning came out of the house gave us autographed jerseys and fresh lemonade
Finally...tomorrow the voting ends for the KING 5 Best Of Western Washington thing. We, the STP-CAST, are hoping to come in at #2 again. We need your help...please vote by clicking HERE! Thanks!
As a thank you for voting, here is punter Jon Ryan of the Seahawks goofing on the new mascot for the Hawks... BOOM!
This week on the STP-CAST, not only does Thee Ted Smith join us for a full recap of the PHISH concert that we attended…but my buddy Brent Amaker was on as well. You might know Brent from his country band, Brent Amaker & The Rodeo…but he was on to talk about his new project, Android Amaker. Imagine Johnny Cash was kidnapped by Kraftwerk…and they got into a tag team match against Daft Punk and Devo…and then they all took LSD, Android Amaker would be the end result. Thanks to Brent & P Smoov from Android Amaker for joining us…you can hear the interview on iTUNES or Stitcher (search STP-CAST)…or listen HERE!
Android Amaker are playing one show (it’s their first and last show, as this will be the only time they play live) at Neumos on Novermber 7th. Their new record is out now!
Check out the video we reference in the interview…this sums up the trippy vibe of Android Amaker…
This is pretty cool…we just got this text at 7-7-9-9-9…it’s always cool when people tell me they listen to our podcast!
Listening to STPCAST. Odd, crazy, interesting stuff with Amaker. Seems cool & I'm not a hipster!
Thanks to Brent for snapping these photos I've posted!
While I’m promoting podcasts, Thee Ted Smith and I just recorded our “pilot” episode of the MegaCast! We hope to make more…as you will hear on the show, we are figuring it out as we go along. CLICK HERE to listen!
One thing is for certain...we have the best logo EVER for our show! Wrestling fans from the 80's will get it!
I love seeing all of the Seahawk players getting national attention…it’s awesome seeing guys like Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson, and Marshawn Lynch getting national attention with the commercials that they star in…but I have to say, Earl Thomas just won the commercial battle with what he just did with Old Spice.
Yesterday I posted some pictures from the Phish concert where Thee Ted Smith, our buddy Sean, and I dressed up as Bert, Ernie, and Elmo. Ted sent me another pic from the night…check us out!
I ended up on Twitter looking at Phish tweets and came across these two random tweets from Phish fans!
Knowing that we enhanced the concert for some seriously makes my day…that was the whole point behind why we did it. We wanted fans to never forget the time they went to see Phish, and they saw Bert, Ernie, and Elmo!
So yesterday I posted a couple of pix from our party at Jazzbones, but I just came across some more that our station photographer Stephanie Savoia took, and they are pretty sweet! Check them out!
And here is a proud father daughter moment! BJ introducing the Rock-A-Holics to Sara!
Over the weekend, Thee Ted Smith, our bud Sean, and I went to the Phish concert at the Key Arena. It was an awesome show…
We also learned a valuable lesson. If you want to be very popular at Phish concert, dress up as Bert, Ernie, and Elmo. Yup…I was Bert, Ted was Ernie, and Sean was Elmo…and we became quite an attraction at the show! I think we took about 100 pictures with Phish fans…and high-fived more people than I can remember! The Sesame Street posse was in full effect! Before the show…we decided to grab a photo, and figured what better way to make the photo creepy than to have all of us on Ted’s bed!
At one point, we were watching the show in a suite right above the band…what an amazing view…
What we didn’t realize was that apparently the spotlight guy put the spotlight on us for about 10 minutes…so everyone in the crowd say us bouncing around and dancing! Too funny!
Thanks to everyone that came out to our 15th Anniversary Party at Jazzbones! It was a blast!
Check out the Rock Girls!
Thanks to all the #rockaholics who helped celebrate my 15th anniversary! #BJParty #RockGirls - @bjshea
