Yesterday was a bummer day, as we learned that comedian Patrice O’Neal passed away at the age of 41. He recently had a stroke & has been battling diabetes….ugh, another great comic passing away at way too young of an age! Wew all got to have Patrice in studio a few years back, and although it started off with him & I arguing on and off air…after all was said and done we got along great (the fight was about him not wanting to make a list of talking topics, and I was trying to get him to as that was protocol for whenever we would have a comic on that we have never met). During the interview he asked to hug it out, I gave him a quick hug & he goofed on me some more for giving a weak hug & demanded I give him a better hug…Here is a great screen shot from that moment:
I will always remember the time that soon after that interview we were in Miami for a radio convention, and we were going to visit a friends morning show, and that morning they had Patrice in studio. We passed each other in the hall, and I didn’t want to bug him as I didn’t think he wopuld remember me…but 5 minutes later he showed back up to the studio, looked at me, and said: “Hey…aren’t you that crazy white guy that argued with me in Seattle?” He then started laying into me for not saying hi…the funny part is that no matter what he was saying, it was funny, he was just a natural funny guy. He then invited me and the guys to his comedy show at the Hard Rock in Florida…so we went there, and not only did he get us tix, but put us in the best seats in the house, and treated us like gold the entire night, not to mention…his comedy that night was incredible…my face hurt from laughing so much!!!!. I have the utmost respect for Patrice, may he rest in peace! Here is a clip of the "Battle" between Patrice & I back in 2008:

I hate the people who take the holiday way too seriously and deck themselves out. They'll be all, "Hey man, where's your holiday spirit? Tis the season!" I'll flip them off and say, "Here's my holiday spirit, you jackass." However, I do look forward to seeing some of the people in my family for a few days, as well as overrating like I normally do.
These holidays I'm not looking forward to hanging out with my family in OR. But in OR Im looking forward to going to hit up the strip clubs, cuz of man are they good!! Especially during the holidays. ~Darrell.
I am not looking forward to getting my dressy clothes out and realizing they don't fit anymore. Very depressing.
I hate having to do the fake smile and thanks for the gifts I'll never use. Specially all the nice sweaters from grandma. Steve from oly.

The National Association of Shoplifting Prevention just released some new statistics…and it turns out shoplifting is WAY bigger than you ever realized. Here are some of the results:
Statistically, 1 out of every 11 people who walks into a store shoplifts something. Retailers are set to lose $119 BILLION this year to shoplifting. That's 1.45% of total sales.
--Only 3% of shoplifters are pros.
--70% of shoplifters didn't go to the store planning to steal … but saw an opportunity and took it.
--75% of shoplifters are adults, most of whom have jobs. And 35% have help from a corrupt employee.
--Shoplifting is up 6% compared to last year.
"Adweek" magazine surveyed store security pros from around the country and asked them what items are shoplifted the most from their stores. Here's the top ten:
1. Filet mignon. "Luxury meat" thefts are up 21% since 2009 and are the most commonly stolen items from grocery stores.
2. Expensive liquors. Stolen more by alcoholics than underage kids.
3. Small electric tools. This covers everything from power drills to electric toothbrushes.
4. iPhones. iPhones, plus other small electronics, get stolen all the time. Approximately 100,000 laptops are stolen from stores every year.
5. Gillette Mach 4 razor blades. Razor blade thefts account for 2.7% of all store losses.
6. AXE body spray. AXE is the most stolen brand of deodorant, body wash, and body spray.
7. Polo. Polo is the most stolen designer brand, and Tommy Hilfiger is second. Clothing theft is up 31% since 2009.
8. Let's Rock Elmo. This Elmo toy, along with all the other hot toys for this Christmas season, are major targets.
9. Chanel No. 5. Designer fragrances account for 4% of losses in stores where they're sold.
So 1 out of 11 people in a store shoplift. Have you ever shoplifted something? If so, what was it? Here are some of the texts we got:
I used to steal GI Joes when I was a kid. Got caught at a Target but was let go. Later that night I was caught AGAIN by my uncle.
Pinched some sweet lingerie from VS. Gave it to hot ex. Great sex when she found out it was hot.
I stole a tiny rubics cube back in 82' cost 12 bucks.Today a giant cube only cost 1 buck at dollar tree.I got my ass whipped because I couldn't wait 30 years
When i was 6 i shoplifted 2 candy bars.mom called the cops, had me cuffed and took to jail for an hour or so to teach a lesson. To this day i have panic attacks
I worked at a major retailer for a number of years, and would for a while, take cd's. Good times. – banky
I used to work retail. I would catch shop lifters daily but the managers wouldn't report them because they were worried about customer service.
When I was in college back in the early 90s I worked at Fred Meyers. I would throw cases of beer between the gap next to the trash compactor. The beer would fall into shrubs behind the store. I would then pick up my free beer after work. Sometimes they would burst from the fall but it was a small price to pay.
I was homeless earlier this year and tried to steal some Chinese food from the Safeway deli. Security caught me and I now owe $850 to the court for a $8 item that I didn't even get to eat!
My high school band was called 'shoplifter'! I grabbed a ton of music gear from musicians friend in tukwila before it was guitar center. Cymbals, guitar
Today's Video Blog is an Intern Challenge...Our intern Hot Kyle has 60 seconds to find a complete stranger at the Occupy Seattle camp to "Pepper Spray" him...will he do it?
Today sadly marks 2 years since the horrible Lakewood Four tragedy, where Sgt. Mark Renninger, and officers Greg Richards, Tina Griswold, and Ronald Owens were gunned down by Maurice Clemmons (who was gunned down a couple days later by a Seattle Police Officer Ben Kelly). Starting today,the families & fellow officers are having their second annual Fallen Officers Food Drive. It’s their way to pay tribute to the officers, and honor their dedication to the community. What a great thing that they do, and if you want to donate food…it starts tomorrow and runs until next Monday. Here are the details:
Fallen Officers Food Drive -- Today Through Monday
Donations will be accepted Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Lakewood Police Department, 9401 Lakewood Drive S.W. Donations will be accepted through Monday at all Pierce County Forza locations; all Pierce County Library branches; Lakewood Ace Hardware, 8123 Steilacoom Blvd. S.W.; and Rusty’s Auto and Truck Repair, 19912 Meridian Ave. E., in Graham.
Food Drive T-shirts will be sold at the Lakewood Police Department on Tuesday. Each shirt costs $15. The proceeds will go to the Emergency Food Network
When I think of the Lakewood Four, I think of the night we had a benefit show for the families at Snoqualmie Casino with Loaded & Queensryche…still to this day, that is one of the most powerful nights I have been a part of.The vibe and love in the air that night cannot be put in words, as many of the officers from Lakewood (as well as other departments) were at the show & I was lucky to spend quality time with some of them.Thanks to that night I wound up creating an incredible friendship with one of the guys, he is now one of my best friends, was a groomsmen at my wedding last year, and a neighbor as well….a true homie!This picture was taken when we brought all of them up on stage that night…
This photo of when the Lakewood Officers embrace still gives me goosebumps:
Yesterday we talked about a new study out of Spain found that managers who don't golf make 17% less money than ones who do. The reason is pretty clear. When you're out golfing for three or four hours with your boss, you're building a great bond…and that factors in, whether subconsciously or not, when it's time for promotions and raises. People who golf with clients also build more loyalty, which helps their career in the long run.
This led to us getting this text:
I knew one guy at work who got in with the boss really good because he went turkey hunting with him.
So based on this…how did you get in good with the boss? Here are the texts we received:
I had sex with my boss which helped me get a raise if you catch my drift, but did absolutely nothing for my career
I once rented a room from my boss at an AM-PM. I cleaned her house.watched her kids. Competed in the safety games. And won the regional title for Arco.
I got a raise for bringing and making a Patron margarita. The best our vp ever had. Corporate life is great!
I took my boss flying in a cessna. just so happens we did a low pass over a nudist resort, cha ching big raise. big j
I went dirt bike riding with the owner of my work. And rode motocross with his son.
my boss joined our company softball team and I got promoted the next season.
I used to bond with my former boss by smoking weed with him at work!
I got in good with my boss by being his wing man at the bar.
Had a threesome with my boss and my husband while her husband watched.
My boss was a lezbian and wanted a sperm donor the fun way and I,got a permotion and a hefty pay increase for my efforts and now we have a threesome with her and her lady
"Rolling Stone" has put out a list of The 100 Greatest Guitarists, which was compiled with input from, quote, "a panel of top guitarists and other experts." Some of the voters included: Billy Corgan, Melissa Etheridge, Tom Morello, Santana, Metallica's Kirk Hammett, Motley Crue's Mick Mars, Queen's Brian May, Aerosmith's Joe Perry, Eddie Van Halen and Joe Walsh. In the end, Jimi Hendrix was named THE greatest guitarist. Here's the Top 10:
It’s always fun to start the morning off with a story like this! 41-year-old Sarah Boushey of San Francisco, California agreed to take her four-year-old daughter to see "The Smurfs"…and Sarah knew it was going to be rough. So she smuggled a bottle of Vodka into the theater with her. The movie was even worse than expected, and she ended up putting down HALF the bottle of vodka. Unfortunately, after the movie, she was dumb enough to get behind the wheel with her four-year-old in the car. And after she sideswiped 2 cars and hit a median, police pulled her over and the daughter told them her mom was drunk. It would be awesome if when the cops asked the kid, she said “Officers, my mom is Smurfing Wasted!” Sarah couldn't even remember her own name(I’m guessing her name isn’t Brainy Smurf…waka waka) and blew a .35 on the breathalyzer…that's more than 4 times the legal limit! Sarah was due in court last week but didn't show up. There's a warrant out for her arrest. Here is my question…why in the hell would you get drunk when obviously the smarter move would be to get baked! It’s the Smurfs after all…find me a stoner that wouldn’t enjoy that movie. Instead she gets all agro crazy drunk…stupid!
I love this story, mainly because of this picture that was released:
Why is Frosty getting cuffed, and why is Frosty missing his head? I’ll tell ya…On Saturday, Frosty the Snowman was arrested for fighting with cops and kicking a police dog. Ok, it’s not the actual Frosty, it’s 52-year-old Kevin Michael Walsh of Chestertown, Maryland who was dressed up as Frosty for Chestertown's annual Christmas parade. Kevin has played Frosty in the parade for at least the past 10 years. His account of what happened and the cops' accounts differ but, basically, they got into an argument about the police dog being at the parade. Possibly the dog tried to make the snow yellow? The cops say Frosty got violent with them…Kevin says he only got violent after they started the arrest process. He ended up being arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
This morning during news I mentioned that tomorrow marks 2 years since the horrible Lakewood Four tragedy, where Sgt. Mark Renninger, and officers Greg Richards, Tina Griswold, and Ronald Owens were gunned down by Maurice Clemmons (who was gunned down a couple days later by a Seattle Police Officer Ben Kelly). Tomorrow the families & fellow officers arte having their second annual Fallen Officers Food Drive. It’s their way to pay tribute to the officers, and honor their decication to the community. What a great thing that they do, and if you want to donate food…it starts tomorrow and runs until next Monday. Here are the details:

This was the most successful Black Friday EVER in terms of sales.It also seems to have set the record for EFFED up moments.Here's a roundup of some of the things your fellow Americans did to save some money on various items . . .
1.The Pepper Spray Incident.At 10:10 P.M. on Thanksgiving, in Porter Ranch, California, just north of Los Angeles, a woman PEPPER SPRAYED her fellow shoppers at a Walmart . . . all to try to clear a path to a crate of Xboxes. At least 20 people, including children, were injured.The woman surrendered to the cops on Saturday.And she DID end up buying an Xbox.
2.The Waffle Maker Riot.Over the weekend, a video surfaced from a Walmart in Little Rock, Arkansas, where people essentially RIOTED over $2 waffle makers.
3.Cops Break Grandpa's Face.At a Walmart in Buckeye, Arizona, 54-year-old Jerald Newman was shopping with his wife and grandson.As a mob descended on the video game section, he wanted to protect his grandson from being trampled. To free up his hands so he could lift his grandson, he put the video game he was holding into the waistband of his pants.The cops saw THAT, thought he was shoplifting, and slammed him to the ground.His face started bleeding like crazy. He was arrested for shoplifting and resisting arrest.
4.Step Over That Corpse For Savings.On Black Friday, 61-year-old Walter Vance of Chapmanville, West Virginia was shopping at Target when he collapsed.He had a history of heart problems and it's believed he had a heart attack. As he was on the ground, dying, other shoppers stepped over him to continue going after discounts. A few nurses who were shopping DID stop . . . Walter was taken to the hospital and died that night.
This past Friday was Black Friday…did you, your partner, or a family member get caught up in the hype?What kind of craziness did you witness or hear about?Here are the texts we received:
I got $700 of toys for under $250!!! Suck it bitches!!!
My wife and I got over $1000.00 worth of stuff for $300
i went to goodwill on black friday and someone barfed in the bathroom hallway and did not report it. i sliped and fell in it. luckily the employees gave me some clean clothes.
I used to work at Walmart in lacey. I watched a dude beat his wife because she was grocery shopping instead of getting the 28 dollar dvd player.
Lady next to me got punched by a dude for a 28 dollar ps3 game at walmart
Worked @ JCPenney in Mount Vernon 1 yr watched 2 women fight ovr a sweatr rippd it in half. $5 swtr! This year the worst. GREEED @ its best! So sad

Over the weekend, 86-year-old Serafino Alfe of Mount Prospect, Illinois was deep frying turkeys for an event at his local country club. As he approached the fryer, he tripped on a piece of cardboard. He knocked into the fryer, and spilled seven-and-a-half gallons of SCALDING OIL on his leg. So instead of successfully deep frying a turkey, he deep fried his own leg. He ended up with third-degree burns and needed a skin graft. He's recovering in the hospital now, but at least he has a sense of humor about the whole thing. He says he loves deep fried turkey, but he doesn't want to taste his own, quote, "drumstick."
An 86-Year-Old tried to deep fry a Turkey and ended up deep frying his own leg…based on this, finish this sentence: “Looking back on what happened, I shouldn’t have tried doing ______.” Here are some of the texts we got:
Breaking the speed record set by guys used to riding and racing ATVs. Serious concussion, broken ribs and broken arm. Beat the record though.
Jumping on my bed as a kid. Kneed myself in the chin and almost bit my tongue off.
Skateboarding at 42
Shudnt hav distractd grandma while she was pushn leftovr food down the garb disposal! She ended up loosn 4 fingrs b4 we cud shut it off!
Looking back I shouldn't have poured the glow stick chemicals on my penis! It was awesome to see my junk glow, but the burning was horrible!!! Tony in Kent
Shouldn't have tried to catch the falling clothes iron
I wish I didn't jump off my dresser yelling "to infinity beyond", smack into my shelf, and as a result break my arm. This happened when I was 4 but I would still probably do something that stupid.
Today's Video Blog features us checking out that riot that happened over a $2 Waffle Iron on Black Friday. Plus we see a shirt made for WWE Superstar Sin Cara that is quickly being recalled, and get a glimpse into the STP household as we are getting a Maltichon Puppy!
Lesson learned…when talking about the Cockfighting Ring that led to 17 people in Gold Bar to be arrested, and 59 roosters euthanized…do not deliver that story in a fast pace…if you do, you might forget the word “fighting” while saying Cockfighting Ring and have to be dumped by Toppy.
Hey if you have a second, help out a fellow Rock-A-Holic…we got a text from Kristine asking if we could show some support to her daughter Jaya, who is going to Japan & blogging about it on a website.You could follow her travels at www.jayasjapanjourney.com.I have to say that is impressive…14, travelling to Japan, creating a website about it…dang!At 14 I was still obsessed with trying to figure out how to unscramble certain cable channels unsuccessfully in my bedroom TV.
This morning we were chatting about hockey analyst Barry Melrose, and how bad ass he is…which led to an email from a listener named Ginny, who happens to be the mom of a Tacoma Donkey (my hockey team):
Just a little additional Melrose for you today.......Barry was our guest at one of Johnny's youth hockey fundraising auctions. He got up and told some hockey stories. It was awesome because he was telling things that were completely inappropriate for young kids, but awesomely funny for us adults. He was talking about how after he'd play a game, the guys would all be sitting around having bottles of beer. Him and another guy used to always do this stupid thing where they would all of a sudden ask everyone "Where's my beer?" while having it tucked into their naked butt crack. It was so funny to see how appalled most of the parents were. Of course my table of obnoxious hockey moms were laughing our ass off.
Melrose is the man!I would love to just hang with him and Don Cherry in a bar and hear all of their stories…hell, toss the Hanson Brothers in the mix too!

No new Video Blog today, I figured lets go with a classic...a re-run of sorts, as we learn how to cook a Turkey!!! Happy Thanksgiving...we'll see ya next week!
Huge thanks to everyone that came out to Haley’s Bar & grill in Everett to celebrate BJ’s 12th Anniversary of rocking the airwaves in the Northwest! How was the night? Well it started with us having an awesome meal at Applebee’s, we then pull up to Haley’s, and I locked my keys in my car! That’s the first time I have ever don’t that…wow, did I feel like a dumbass…so much so that I got everyone at Haley’s to chant, “Steve…You’re a dumbass.” That made me feel better, that, and a guy came up and said he did the exact same thing that night as well! Misery loves company. Thankfully Toppy has AAA and we got my keys out quick. After that, things were rocking…a packed house at haley’s, and everyone we met was very cool. Plus, this happened:
You are probably wondering what the hell is this, and what were we doing? You can see what was up in my video blog today, which is at the bottom of this blog!
Saturday night my wife and I hit up an amazing charity Gala for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. It was their “Be A Star” Gala, and it was an incredible night, just hearing many of the stories of the great stuff that CFF does for those suffering from C.F. was a beyond moving experience. My wife & I not only attended the Gala, but we also volunteered before the night began. Plus, I got to “Suit Up”, as Barney from “How I Met Your Mother” would say. It was “Legend….wait for it…Dary”!
A company called SplashData ran a study on millions of stolen passwords that have been posted online by hackers this year, and they came up with the 10 most common Internet passwords. Here's the list.
4. qwerty (--the first six letters on the top row of the keyboard)
It’s funny…back when I first got into the net where I needed passwords, I was “THAT” guy where I would use “Password” because I thought I was so clever…only to realize that everyone was using that. So then I tried to be really “creative” by picking the most vile sexual terms for my password…I figured that no one would ever think my password was (rhymes with) “pumpkin69”. What’s that Alice In Chains song called? Oh yeah…Check My Brain!
We wound up talking a little bit about Demi, and Ashton…ok…before you roll your eyes …this was pretty interesting in a ironic way: Before Demi Moore filed for divorce from Ashton Kutcher…Ashton talked about women and relationships with "Men's Health" magazine. This is probably the most ironic quote: "I think it's all about working on the relationship and making it b better . . . when it's good. Don't wait for a problem to work on things. The goal is not to get into a relationship; the goal is to be in a relationship." He also said, "I would just like a woman someday, somewhere, at some point in my life to say to me, 'You're a great listener.' Haven't heard it yet, and that's a superior compliment to get from a woman. But I'm going to work on it." Hmmm…so you wanted those hot younger chicks to listen to you when you said the hot tub was extra warm, before nailing them? Ashton was also asked to finish this sentence: "I could never be with a woman who . . ." He replied, "Wow, that's tough. I could never be with a woman who felt like she needed to change me."
Based on that last quote… finish this sentence: "I could never be with a woman who _______." Ladies, feel free to chime in two & finish the same sentence: "I could never be with a man who ______ ." Here are some of the texts:
Has or wants to have children. I am childfree by choice and require the same in any potential partner. Joe in Lynnwood.
I could never be with a woman who said "I don't want sports on the tv when I get married". We had dated for two years by this point. I walked out within the week. DV

Over the weekend, BJ went to see Twilight even though he didn’t want to…He did it for his daughter.Based on this…what is something that you had to do, even though you absolutely didn’t want to?After all was said and done…did you enjoy doing it? Here are the texts we received:
Wife had me help dye here hair with henna. I was terified of the outcome. It ended up looking great. Wouldn't say I enjoyed it. But do enjoy the end result. She looks like a hot ginger now. Unlike a real ginger though she has a soul
I was forced to watch The Notebook as well as Dear John. They both sucked, no, I didn't enjoy them.
Had to go see Phantom of the Opera on an 8th grade NY trip. Ended up loving it. Saw it again at the Paramount with the wife. Great play!
Riverdance went for the wife but wasn't bad
I got drug to a Gay bar for my wifes friends birthday party. I ended up getting wasted and had a blast.
Had to take my lady to FORKS because she wanted to after watching Twilight. After all said and done it wasn't a bad short vacation. RED THE CHICKEN MAN

Fishing. My husband wouldn't stop bugging me about it until I went. It was kinda fun, I caught 3 fish and everyone else caught none.
Going snowboarding and getting off the lift for the first time ever. After the day on the mountain, i loved it and kept going back for more.
Absolutely did not want to take my son to toy story 3 on ice. But i did enjoy the shapely jiggles of skating Barbie.

Gotta love Mono-Nick…we were about to chat about Regis Philbin and how today is his last show on Live With Regis & Kelly, Nick pops in with this great tidbit of info: “Did you know Sesame Street just turned 42 this week?” Nick went on to tell us that being on the air that long, you probably feel there's not much about the show that could surprise you, but you're wrong. Here is Mono-Nick’s Top 3 Things You Didn't Know About "Sesame Street".
--Hyperactive, paranoid and with not a tooth in his head? Yeah, Grover's totally on meth.
--Big Bird didn't get that name because of his height.
And the number 1 thing you didn't know about Sesame Street...
--A former coach at Penn State was once caught tickling Elmo.
Personally…I absolutely love it when Nick comes up with one of his lists…they always crack me up…but apparently his silly lists are very polarizing…listeners teand to not sit on the fence on them, as they are either loving them or hating em…for instance, here are the first 2 texts we got when he finished his list:
Can mono nick please kill himself
Wow Nick Im impressed today! Well done sir.
Here is a nominee for Mom Of The Year!!! On Tuesday morning, 34-year-old Tammy Oneal of Dover, Delaware was taking her nine-year-old son to Reily Brown Elementary School in her 1990 Toyota Corolla (sweet ride!). Here is the kicker…she let her son drive the fullL quarter-mile to the school. Her reason? She said, "Because he wanted to." When he pulled up, tons of children, parents, and school employees saw him behind the wheel. Fortunately, no one was hurt.How gangsta is that? He must have looked like the coolest kid ever to those other kids! Someone called the cops (I can’t imagine why), and Tammy was arrested for reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child. There's a reason the kid was such a good driver. Tammy ended up telling the cops she's been letting him drive in a field since he was FIVE. Holy balls! 5 years old…I couldn’t even clean myself at 5…ok…the jury is still out on that, just ask my wife…waka waka!
Based on the story of the mom that let her 9 year old drive…looking back on your life, when did you realize that your mom or your dad was an idiot? Or…when have you been the idiot parent? What did you do? Here are the texts we got:
Jonah from puyallup. When my dad had me steer the cart whole he took a toke off his pipe and stirred his bowl.
I let my kids watch family guy at times lol. The other day my kid and me fell asleep to old episodes of Beavis and Butthead. I'm going to hell lololol
My dad had to go to jail on the weekends for a dui when I was about 5. One time he showed up to jail drunk. They gave him more time.
When my mom had me mix their whiskey cokes when they were driving cause she said its dangerous for her to take her hands off the steering wheel.....I was 6
When i was seven, my dad got drunk with some friends of his and thought it would be fun to take my go kart out for a spin. After ten mins he came back with a bent axle and no chain. Thanks dad
My parents wouldn't let me watch simpsons or star trek the next generation growing up because of the content, but we watched baywatch as a family....yeah.
I realized my dad was a tool when he cut his hand off on the table saw while drinkn a beer & talkn 2 me @ the same time!
I realized my dad was an idiot when he banged his head on the toilet. The prodigy
My daddy is a tool! The other day he cudnt open the peanut butr jar! Signd stinky.
Today's video blog starts off with us goofing on something in BJ's hair...and it turns into a dance party. Plus...Intern Hot Kyle does something insanley disgusting!
Congrats Seattle, you made national headlines for this picture:
What is this picture? BJ said it looked like something out of a Zombie film…I thought he was going to go down an unspeakable road…to which BJ questioned my sanity, but hey…there are websites for that! Ok, sorry for that visual.
This woman is a 84 year old activist, and she got caught up in the mix at Tuesday’s rally forn Occupy Seattle, when they marched to Westlake…wouldn’t get off the streets…and subsequently got pepper sprayed by the police. The old lady was making headlines because she was pepper sprayed, but so was a 19 year old pregnant woman as well. OK…call me a jerk, but pregnant lady…I have a question for you: Is it really a wise move to be a part of a protest and a rally when you have a bun in the oven? I can hear the other side now…”She has a right to be a part of a peaceful protest”. Yes, she does, but many of the protestors we refusing to listen to the cops, and there were few that were being antagonistic towards the police…at that point, would you think it’s time to high tail out of there? Pregnant lady…how about Occupying a kitchen, with no shoes on! I’m kidding! I don’t know how good of a cook she is afterall.
OK…back to why we made national news for this picture. It spread virally all over the country, and it even came up during The Colbert Report on Comedy Central…Here is Stephen Colbert:
Huge thanks to John Cena for joining us this morning. John was on to talk about how he & The Rock are teaming up at Survivor Series this Sunday on Pay per View…he will eventually take The Rock on at Wrestlemania, which will be awesome! This Sunday will be the first time The Rock will actually wrestle in 7 years!!!! Should be awesome. Speaking of awesome…I love this exchange between the Rock & Cena on the last Monday Night Raw!
“Cena’s Lady parts” Hahaha!!!!!!
After dinner Saturday night with the entire family in Hollywood, the SUV was waiting outside with a big, red bow around it. Kendall is the daughter of Bruce and KrisJenner and is the half sister to the Kardashians… that is quite the first car… When we talked to John Cena, he said his first car was a 84 Cadillac Coupe Deville! So what about you…what was your first car? What is your dream car? Here are the texts:
Sixty seven pintoe

My dad bought me a lawn mower to make money so I could buy my own car
A hyundai excel hatchback that I bought neighborhood pot dealer. The floorboard was busted open so you could see the road as you drive. I called my flintstone car.

Today video blog features Crazy Sheri...a pony...and candy...not in that order! Oh, Vicky B. does something with her tongue too!
Gene Simmons of KISS thinks Axl Rose has destroyed Guns N’ Roses. Gene tells Music-News.com, "They could've been the biggest band in the world, and the reason they're not is because of Axl Rose. I mean, the drugs, the heroin, the alcohol and all that. But ultimately, it falls on Axl's shoulders." Gene believes one thing that could've saved the band: Axl getting a BEATING. He explains, "A good beating would have helped. I mean, when you misbehaved as a little kid and continued to do it, there was somebody there to give you a what for. Then when you become a grown-up, who's there to set you straight?" So let me get this straight…Gene is giving Axl crap for not keeping G ‘N R together? Um Gene…you are basically doing what Axl is doing…Axl tours with hired hands & calls it Guns N’ Roses, and you do the same with Kiss. Or are we supposed to believe that Tommy Thayer really is Ace Frehley, and Eric Singer is Peter Criss? The only difference is that Axl doesn’t have his guitarist dress up with a Top Hat and curly hair and pretend to be an original member.
The part that stuck out to BJ was that Gene Simmons said that Axl Rose could’ve used a beating to set him straight…BJ is thinking what he means is that he should have been disciplined better as a kid, AKA “Corporal Punishment”…this led to some texts regarding this:
I was in a choir when I was in elementary school. My choir director forced us to do 20 to 40 pushups when we misbehaved, and it worked like a charm.
I've got a good job at Boeing and doing well for myself and I got spanked when I got out of line. My little brother on the other hand did not get spanked and he's in rehab for drug and alcohol abuse and he's only 19
Got caught stealing when i was little got my ass beat for it sure learned my lesson
don't you think spanking only the boy and not the girl would cause resentment? the boy would grow up either being jealous and mad towards the sister, or mad at you for only targeting him and not his sister. that would mess him up psychologically
Hell yeah i believe in it i got my ass beat constantly when i was growing up straightend my bratty ass up.
I wouldnt mind giving vicky a good spank. From: Aaron the cowboy
Hell yeah BJ! I grew up with 2 younger sisters. When my dad saw me getting rough with them he put the fear of god in me. Im now almost 34 and have never physically aggressed a woman. Im one of few that can honestly say that. Probably helped he was a marine seargent. Jesse in edmonds.
I know tons of guys in jail who were hit by their fathers. If your point was true, you'd find the opposite BJ.
ABSO-F******-LUTELY! I took one beating which served to disuade me from doing anymore stupid things.
According to a recent survey by a British insurance company RAC., 16% of people…or about one in six…say they've INTENTIONALLY driven through a puddle to splash a pedestrian. 55% say they take extra care NOT to splash pedestrians. The other 29% say they've splashed a pedestrian, but it was accidental. 40% of people admit they've laughed at someone who got splashed by a driver.
Based on this…when have you done something that made you look like a jerk? Or…when have you found something funny that you probably shouldn’t have laughed at? Here are some texts we got:
I laughed at a friend for getting hit by a car. That was moving 5 mph Cody bothell
Love to lay on the horn just as a golfer is teeing off. Got the double bird one time when my horn stuck
Slushy day hit a spot along cars in turn lane. One lady had her window down smoking. Slush actually hit her so hard we saw her hair Blow sideways. Moral to story, -- don’t smoke
2 guys ran across the street timed to go just as I passed. I hit the breaks, they ran into my car, we all laughed...
I drive a snow plow in the winter and intentionally hit people with snow every chance i get! Nothing is more fun
Me and friends used to turn our windshield squirters sideways for the benefit of pedestrians

I scared the krap out of rock girl christin with my truck horn when she wad at her job
Last Monday, cops were called to a Whataburger fast food place in Porter, Texas after a man passed out there. It turns out he just got painkillers from 44-year-old Tina Marie Arie and her boyfriend, 30-year-old Howard Windham …and they knocked him out (pretty effective pain killer if you ask me waka waka). The cops arrested Tina and Howard for delivery of a controlled substance and possession. As a cop drove them to jail, handcuffed in the backseat of the police car, he realized he couldn't see Tina's head in the rearview mirror anymore, so he ended up pulling over. What did he find out? Yup…you guessed right… somehow, while handcuffed, Tina and Howard had managed to pull Howard's lil’ criminal out of his pants…and Tina having a stern talking to the lil’ criminal. Holy moly!!!! The cops decided not to tack on a misdemeanor public indecency charge. This story left me with many questions…OK, mainly just one…”How did she pull this off without hurting herself?” What am I talking about? Well…if her hands were cuffed behind her back…how did she not impale herself? Still confused by my question…well I demonstrate what I am talking about in today’s video blog…check it out:
This could be the concert of the year. I don’t know what people paid to see Hole perform in Brazil, but it was worth every penny as she freaked out big time during the show. What happened? Besides the usual fact that Courtney is Bat-“ESS” crazy, she freaked out after someone in the crowd held up a picture of Kurt Cobain. Then she stormed off the stage, and eventually returned to the stage after one of the crew members got the crowd to chant, "The Foo Fighters are gay." Here is the video:
What the hell did the picture of Kurt look like>? Did it have a caption on it that said “You Killed Me!”? I guess she also took her shirt off and played topless for a bit…yikes…she is nearly 50!!!!! Regardless...Best Concert Ever! Turn that show into a concert film…instead of “The Song Remains The Same”, it could be “The Singer Remains Insane.”
According to a new survey by Lonely Planet (which is a website that gives Travel advice, tips and destination information), INDIA is the number one "life-changing" travel destination. It's followed by Cambodia, Australia, and Thailand. New York City came in fifth, and was the only city to make the list. After New York, the rest of the top 10 is France, New Zealand, Nepal, Vietnam, and Peru. The poll was conducted on its Facebook and Twitter pages, and spokesperson Heather Carswell said, quote, “It's not surprising that India took first place, it is a perennial favorite with travelers and one of the most vibrant, challenging and exciting places to visit in the world. The country’s fascinating culture, diversity and great value make it possible to have truly unique experiences.” As for how people were changed, the site states that a common theme was getting infected with the ‘travel bug’ from their first international trip. The diversity of humanity was also mentioned often, and interestingly enough…inhumanity also affected people, such as the Nazi death camps in Auschwitz being named. Based on this…Whether it be a place that you went or something that happened to you…what was a “life changing” moment in your life?
I've been to Auschwitz and its intence. You feel the evil.
The #1 life changeing destination should be Vicki B.s bedroom.
my life changing moments was raising 3200 dollars for the leukemia lymphoma society and a running in the nike women's marathon in san Francisco

What a game yesterday for the Hawks…they surprised the Ravens, hell…they surprised pretty much everyone by walking away with a win.Ravens…the Hawks have 2 words for ya….no, not Beast Mode….Steven Hauschka.How bout the former Raven nailed 5 field goals (a personal record for him, and he tied a Hawks record for most FG’s), leading the Hawks to a 22-17 win.If you have Hauschka on your fantasy team you are a happy camper.I mentioned Beast Mode because Marshawn Lynch was the real story…another game with over 100 yards, plus he had the hawks only TD…and he had the best fall of the year when he tripped over a camera man’s cord:
I wish I had this dude as a teacher while getting an education at Plattsburgh State University!George Parrott teaches Psychology at Sacramento State, and has done sofor 39 years…and how awesome is this…he requireshis students to bring him food.George explains his snack policy on the first day of class:No food, no class.I’m not kidding…he has a handout that states, "Not having a snack = no Dr. Parrott."Not every student has to bring him food, but someone does.George claims it's his way of getting his students to work together and come up with a snack schedule. I’m sure that is the reason…more like old man Parrott is a little hungry!Got the munchies, George?A bunch of stoned psychology majors probably love his class! The syllabus suggests that two students take responsibility each class, and he cautions against repeating snacks from a previous class. Are you like me and wondering what kind of snacks George likes?Well, he gives the students suggestions of what type of snack to bring:homemade baked goods, and vegetable or fruit platters.The entire class gets to have some.George says it helps keep their concentration up and prevents them from leaving the room to get their own food.And the cost to the students is offset by not requiring them to buy a textbook for the course. Students finally complained on Thursday (losers), when they forgot to bring the food.George and his TAs collected their things, left the room, and went out to breakfast, cancelling the class where they were supposed to review for Monday's midterm. The university is looking into the allegations.
Nic Cage was at a store called Northern Knives in Anchorage, Alaska on Wednesday, when a particular steak knife caught hieye.It had a handle made with Mammoth Ivory …and it cost $2,000.So what did he do?Yes, he bought it. This is the part I love…he didn’t buy it for display only….he is actually going to use it to cut his steak. Based on Nic Cage spending 2000 dollars on a steak knife…What is the most ridiculous purchase you have ever made?Have you ever made a purchase that you regret?What was it?Here are some of the texts we got, and yes…we got a ton of “wedding ring” texts:
$10,000 on a 50cal Sniper Rifle
a shake weight. 'nuff said
Brand new car at 19.....I'm 23 and still trying to pay it off...bad idea -mandi
Bought a stupid sweater that my ex. Girlfriend wanted me to get. Was only 60 bucks but had no money for food the next week.

On Friday during Listeners On the Loose, we learned about a culture of men that are into My Little Pony, and they call themselves… “Bronies”.What is this about?There is a group of guys that obsess over My Little Pony, and the new show…”Friendship Is Magic”… here is a synopsis of the show:
The show follows a studious unicorn pony named Twilight Sparkle as she is tasked by her mentor Princess Celestia to learn about friendship in the town of Ponyville. Twilight becomes close friends with five other ponies: Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie. Each represents a different facet of friendship, and discovers themselves to be key parts in the "Elements of Harmony".In the series, the ponies share adventures and help out other residents of Ponyville, while working out the troublesome moments in their own friendships.
So I read that above, and I can wonder is this…is the weed that much stronger now than it was back when I was in college?I get getting reefed up & watching the Smurfs or He-Man because it’s funny…hell, even Blue’s Clues (because we all know that Steve was a stoner too)….but why are dudes…DUDES…watching a show that has a pony named Pinky Pie on it?This is beyond head scratching!!!!
After talking about it on air, BJ’s Facebook page blew up with comments about “Bronies”…here are some of the things that were said:
Daniel:Bronies = Losing man card. My little pony was designed by Hasbro in the early 80's to sell their toys to little girls, You are playing with little girl toys.
Justin:We dont like the old stuff the new show friendship is magic is what we like and we don't play with ponies some bronies collect them but I don't I just like the show
Skylar:We are male fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which is actually NOTHING like the older My Little Pony. The first season was directed by Lauren Faust, same person who directed Power Puff Girls and Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends. The show has beautiful animation, it's well written, the characters are lovable as hell, the background music is very well composed, and the voice-acting is top-notch. Also, I'm a straight male with a beautiful girlfriend, and I've been a Brony since June 2011.
David:Hey what's next barbies?
Pete:I bet you like glee too....
Alicia:Seriously? Why do some people get to procreate? This is the dumbest thing I have seen.
Rich:This may very well be the stupidest thing I've ever seen. It makes total sense that the Rev would be into it.
BJ gets there's no logical reason for him not liking the show, but there are plenty of things he likes that he knows most don't , hell…most of us obsess over things that others will roll their eyes too…for instance…I love Wrestling, and 9 times out of 10 I get looked down on for being a fan…but I get why it makes no sense to other adults.So... based on the “Bronies” phenomenon….fill in the blank…People look at me strange when they find out that I am into ______________.Here are some of the texts we got:
Sorry, I dig Glee... It's all the hot cheerleaders!
People look at me funny when they find out that I am a gamer (dnd and such). Btw dies the rev put his dress on before or after he gets home... – Michael
People look at me funny when they find out that my husband and i date other people. We are currently living in diff states
They look at me weird when I say I like comic books. I'm 30, in great shape, and a fairly good looking guy who likes to wear superhero shirts when I work out.
Ppl think im crazy cause i play alot of wow and im 42
I am 24 and i love teenage mutant ninja turtles.
most people know me as a metalhead, so when I tell them I'm into Phish they look at me funny and think I'm joking

People think it weird that I go tanning, im 19 year old male
A lot of people look at me funny when I tell them I'm dating a chick and a dude at the same time. We've been together for over a year and I hope many more to come

Learned a valuable lesson last night…when trying to grab a quick dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings, it’s a horrible idea to go in the middle of a Thursday Night Football game…holy crap the place was packed, not a table to be had…which was like torture, as I was in a B-Dub-Dub mood!

Today's Video Blog features The Rev checking out a game called Guild Wars...Enjoy!
Yesterday I went on a little rant about Joe Paterno, and how disappointed I am in him & anyone that knew that his former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was molesting kids for not turning him in to the police. Have you read the indictment papers? It’s 23 pages, but if you have a few minutes…read this:
I think for those that are wondering why some of us are pissed at people like Paterno for not doing enough when this info fell in their lap will understand why this is so upsetting. You read all about the awful stuff Sandusky did (what a sick, horrible human being by the way), and at no point did anyone alert the university police or the state police. Unbelievable. Did they really try and handle molestation accusations internally? Yes they did. I love the people that argue "he did what he was supposed to do"...I'm sorry, can you explain that logic to the multiple victims that continued to be molested for several years while school autorities "handled" it??? Props to the school for firing Joe Paterno, as well as the president of Penn State...everyone that knew about Sandusky should be fired. Shame on all those idiot students that rallied in support of Joe by flipping a TV van and rioting...I wish those students would read the indictment, and maybe they would think twice about showing off their "school spirit."
I’d like to share Paul Silvi’s rant that he did on KING 5. He sums it up best!
I just read that the Lou Reed and Metallica CD sold 13,000 copies in it’s first week…all of those people that bought it need to get their hearing checked…that sold 13,000 more copies than I thought it would. Apparently the economy isn’t affecting everyone as those customers must have extra income to just blow on awful sounding “music.”
Last week in Croatia, an unidentified 50-year-old man was at home, and…as he put it….quote, "experimenting in a sex game." That involved using a live, four-and-a-half-inch Anti-Aircraft Shell in an area where you really don't want to put explosives…and it got stuck. He ended up going to the hospital, and luckily doctors were able to remove the shell before anything could go wrong. The police are now investigating this guy to see if he had any other illegal weapons around his house…I could think of a place they should look…waka waka!!! They haven't said whether or not he'll be charged for having the shell. I love this text we got:
Rectum? Nearly killed em.
Based on this…when did you do something that when you look back on it, it clearly wasn’t a good idea? Here are the texts we got:
There was an abandoned school where i use to live. Me and my friends were like, its been abandoned for years, why not go in? It wasnt abandoned enough to not have a silent alarm to the cops. Biggest mistake ever lol
i had a guy come into the ER w a nut (as in nuts & blots) stuck on his penis...it got as his wife & him were trying new sexual things @ home. Off 2 surgery he went...

The last time I was in Iraq as a medic I had a soldier circumsize himself with a pair of toe nail clippers. He thought the semi rounded edge on the end of the clippers created a good template. Said he did it for a chic because she wouldn't sleep with him until he got rid of the ant eater.
I put icy hot all over my junk. Woooooooo! Not good idea, not good for maturbating afterall
I decided to kicl a skunk to see if it was dead... It wasnt
The Journal Of Sexual Medicine has come up with a theory behind why people are sexually attracted to pregnant women…basically if you were heavily exposed to being breastfed until the age of 5, chances are you are into the women with the baby bump...They say your sexual behavior starts from the time that you are born…wow, that’s crazy!!!!! I love our texters…they had their own theories:
The answer is easy, pregnant chicks are hot because it means they like a little rawdog action!
No crap guys are attracted to pregnant woman. You can raw dog with no consequences
Yes they are hot! You know they gave it up atleast once. :)
Many people think being attracted to a preggo woman is a little odd…Based on this…finish this sentence:“I’m not sure why, but I find myself attracted to _______”
Idk why but I'm attracted to guys that wear eyeliner. Tattoos do it for me too :-
Cute chubby girls
I dont know why but i am very attracted to pale white chicks with red hair & tattoos! A slice of heaven, is the one out there?
I don't know why but im attracted to girls with dark hair ame glasses.

Today's video blog features a girl named Lexi that sends us pictures...we can't show the pictures, but check out our reactions!
So yesterday I was talking to Thee Ted Smith from The Men’s Room, and it’s funny how both of us seemed to have our heads wrapped around the b.s. that is happening at Penn State. A quick summery of what is happening:
Former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was arrested for allegedly sexually abusing eight boys over 15 years.
He used The Second Mile foundation - a charity which helps at-risk kids - to prey upon boys.
A graduate assistant told Paterno in 2002 that he had seen Sandusky performing a sex act on a 10-year-old boy in a shower .
Paterno notified the Athletic Director about the incident, but never the cops
A 9th victim has come out and said that Sandusky molested him.
Rumor has it that Penn State is putting a plan in place to remove legendary coach Joe Paterno
Many questions pop into my mind…the main one is that many people were aware of the allegations since 2002…and 9 years later Sandusky is finally behind bars? I’d like to quote Ted when he blogged: “for years they told players about being men and leaders and when it was time to really lead and act no one did at Penn St. Shame on them all and yes Joe Pa this undoes all the good you did over the years.” I agree 100% Ted…you should read Ted’s take on this horrible story on his blog here: http://www.kisw.com/Penn-St--11-8-11/11281395?pid=179848
Something that really sent me over the edge last night was when I saw this video of Joe Paterno addressing the reporters and Penn State students/fans outside of his home:
Holy crap this pisses me off to no end.
Did he really “rally” the “fans” into a Penn State chant? He might as well have said: “Pray for the victims…but more importantly…lets go Penn State!!!” Maybe this hits me more than others, but I am so angered by all of this. For 9 years this Sandusky guy has been hurting kids time and time again, yet somehow he was the one being protected. See, my childhood best friend, a man who is like a brother to me, opened up to some of us that he was molested by our hockey coach when we were younger….he is currently making a film about this called “Coached Into Silence”, which is all about how we spend more energy protecting the molester (after all, how could a coach someone like this?) than the victims. He is getting death threats for making this film because people don’t want to believe that a coach/human being can do this. How logical is that? That is basically saying “if we brush it under the carpet, it’s like it never happened.” Tell that to the 9 kids (or more) who won’t be able to live a good life thanks to that (insert the worst possible word here) of a man named Jerry Sandusky.
I read that this kid by the name of Noah Spence, who is considered one of the nation's top recruits, posted on his Twitter account that Penn State no longer is an attractive option for him. Props to Spence for saying something! One last thing on all of this…watch ESPN analyst Matt Millen…his words sum it up best. Matt was coached by Sandusky when he played at Penn State back in the 70’s:
Ok…I’m stepping down off my soap box.
Tower Heist" director Brett Ratner has resigned as producer of the 2012 "Oscars," after he dropped a gay slur at a screening of the movie the other night. When someone asked him what rehearsals were like on the movie, Brett used the gay slur that rhymes with "bags." Ratner quickly apologized…He said, "Having love in your heart doesn't count for much if what comes out of your mouth is ugly and bigoted. Being asked to help put on the Oscar show was the proudest moment of my career. But as painful as this may be for me, it would be worse if my association with the show were to be a distraction from the Academy and the high ideals it represents." Ratner said he's in contact with GLAAD, and he's, quote, "determined to learn from this experience." This was definitely a moment where Brett wishes he didn’t say that! Based on this, when did you wish you would have kept your mouth shut? When did you say something that you realize was a bad idea…what did you say? Here are the texts:
I screamed I was bi sexual in class and my class and uber CHRISTIAN teacher looked at me like I was disgusting... He never looked at me or talked to me again.
When i admitted to doing drugs to the authorities
At my wedding, during my vows, rather than say "I do," I said "What are my options again?". The gasps and laughter filled the church. I just should have said I do, because my wife never lets me forget that
One night, my fiance and i were drinking with his brother and my shut up filter didn't turn on in time before saying "yea my ex Brett is the one i shouldn't have broke up
When I walked up to my cousin and asked when she was due to deliver. She wasn't pregnant. Family never forgets
My wife and I got in a fight I told her I didn't love her anymore...ooops
When I told my ex "if not for your vagina you would be completly useless
Was waiting for a girlfriend to get ready for a date she was putting on makeup I asked why put new paint on an old barn
After my girlfriend pushed out our daughter i asked her "how did that feel " it did not turn out good"
The website Guyism just released a list of the 10 most important moments in every guy’s life.
10. He gets in a fight…and loses. It’s that first taste of your own blood at the hands of someone else that prepares you for a whole lot of bitterness down the road.
9. He gets his first car…and discovers there’s another base besides first.
8. He meets a girl…and promptly puts gum in her hair. The time as a male when you’re not constantly obsessed with girls is a precious one.
7. He gets his heartbroken…and vows to never do that to another person.
6. He gets married…and realizes he’s got one vagina for the rest of his life.
5. He moves out of mom and dad’s house…and survives on Top Ramen.
4. He lands his dream job…and realizes that even that job sucks.
3. He loses his virginity.
2. He has a child…and can’t fully comprehend it and what he’s going to do.
1. He locates his penis…and never loses sight of it ever again.
What would you put on the list? What's the defining moment that you'll never forget? Here are the texts:
First time you **** it. Sam from Puyallup
First time having sex in your first car
The day you get your first car/truck
Defining moment: first major purchase such as house or car
The day my wife said we could have a threesome
First time going to Vegas! Without family or girlfriend.
First pubic hair michael from Woodinville
when your first child comes out of his or her mother's vagina.
May not be the most important, but is no doubt defining, when his first really good dog that he har had for a long time dies.
Watching my first daughter be born! As cheesy as it sounds, I literally felt me as a person, and my life change.
Joining the Army, hands down. I turned myself from a directionless layabout of a boy into a man finally at 24 years old.
The thing ill never 4get is the time i found the first hair on My boys cuz i knew i was becomeing a man ha ha ha
Sounds corny, but 9/11. It's the reason I joined the Army and 9 years later I'm still in.
Today’s Video Blog features another intern challenge!

Today the 40th anniversary of Led Zeppelin Four and we are celebrating it all day here on The Rock. Check out stories, video and pictures all about Led Zeppelin as well as the “Glitter To Gold” Remix of Stairway To Heaven here: http://www.kisw.com/pages/11352956.php?
I especially love this tidbit of Zeppelin history…back in 1969, they played at Greenlake…yes, Greenlake….check out the pic of Led Zeppelin rocking Seattle's outdoor Green Lake Aqua Theatre on May 11, 1969.
I was never the biggest Zeppelin fan, I dug their stuff, but as a kid…I was a KISS fan…that is, until I started playing the drums, and paid attention to John Bonham…man, what a drummer...that made me a fan. His drumming is impossible to duplicate…sure you can play his parts, but you can’t imitate his feel. There was a loose swagger to what he was doing…and thankfully there were no such thing as Pro Tool’s to make it sound “perfect”…it was perfect because it was real. Hell...I have a 24” bass drum because of how cool it sounded for Bonzo…one of my 2 drum sets is a green glitter kit because he had one, and the other is a Ludwig, because he rocked Ludwigs…and my snare is an acrylic see through drum, just like he used to play. I know I am not the only one that has been impacted by their music, so we opened up the phones, and the text line…and here are some of the Rock-A-Holics Led Zep memories:
The 1st time I ever got high I was listening to No Quarter (it was the best trip EVER!! ) Danielle
Morning boys.. I lost my V card to cashmir :-D. Angela
i first heard them when i was a freshman in junior high. but no quarter has to be the best. it brings back memories of smoking large ammounts of weed in the snow
i walked down the isle at my wedding to stairway to heaven in 1987 .....raro.....
John bonham is the reason I still play air drums. I am 52 years old. He was the best ever
Black dog. I love air drumming. I used to hate zeppelin because I heard it every second, but I listened to Bonham's drumming and fell in love with the album. Now I listen to it whenever I can. -the DV
My mom sat stageside next to Jon Bonham and told me a tech shoved a bottlecap of coke in his face! Houses of the Holy for life bitches!
Me and my best friend gave ourselves our first tattoos listening to Zepplin on New Years 1993 when we were 16.
My dad went to a zepplin concert on acid when he was young, everytime I hear them I think of it and get jealous lol
Fast times at ridgemount high. Dude trying to score to led zepplin 4 side 2
Greatest zeppelin memory was losin the vcard while listenin to misty mountain hop in the background. Man i miss that baby sitter
after hearing the interview of Jason last week, I went home and bought one of their albums, and cannot believe I've never listened to them before! Wow!
The 20-year-old who says Justin Bieber father her child was on "The Insider" last night, and explained what she says happened. Mariah Yeater says she was with Justin after one of his concerts, and he was really sweet at first. But then he got very aggressive. And he told her he didn't want to use a condom because it was his "first time." Yeater says she gave her lawyers evidence that Justin Bieber is the father, and everyone who doesn't believe her will learn the truth eventually. Based on this, finish this sentence:“Nobody believes me when I tell them _______.”
Nobody belives me when I tell them my wife rooted my so she can track me and trace my phone calls
Nobody believes me when I say I've had sex with vicky b. I haven't, but why won't they believe me?
No one believes Steve, wen he says he doesn't have sex with Lucy.
Nobody believes when I was 15 (1987) I had a 34 year old cop girlfriend. Except my parents, they knew her and hated her
People can't believe it when I tell them that I've physically run 100 miles. Without stopping. No joke.
When I tell them that my dad invented the weightless sex swing. **CB
That I hit a deer at 80 MPH on a motercycle and walked away from ot
No one ever believes me when i mention that my drummer and i were picked up and then tagged a famous hottie actress when she was here filming 12 yrs. ago her initials are C.T. and shes a lot more famous now than 12 Yrs. Ago but i bet shes still a VERY dirty girl!
nobody believed me when I met Steve The Producer at T mobile so I posted a pic of him on my Movember page under pic with famous person signed Jeremy Carnahan
Nobody believes me that I was struck by lightening except my husband because he saw it.
Nobody believes that I got to serve the iconic "Bruce Campell" of the army of darkness at shennigans in tacoma!! We even had a smoke on the restaraunt deck! Coolest dude! Mike in Tacoma So Conrad Murray was found guilty…but hell, we already knew that…remember 9 months ago, when Mono-Nick unearthed a new song from Jack-O that was written from his grave? If not…here is a trip down memory lane...it's like a re-run for a video blog:
My body is all out of wack…and I blame Daylight Savings Time!I was hungry at the wrong time, I couldn’t sleep…and yes…I blame that one hour shift for it.Then again I am always hungry.I do have to say this…thank God for my X-Finity cable box, and my cell phone…as they automatically set to the new time.I know it’s sad that I can’t remember the old saying “Spring Forward, Fall Behind”.Apparently I am not alone…we read this morning that 11 % of people changed their clocks the wrong direction yesterday.
BJ read a story about Brett Ratner that made me confused.Brett is a Hollywood director, he just directed the big box office hit: "Tower Heist"…he’s in the news for a rumor about him…uh…pleasuring himself in front of Olivia Munn! Olivia started that rumor last year, in her book "Suck It, Wonder Woman!The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek"….She said she ended up in Brett's trailer on a movie set one time; however, in the book she never named him…I guess enough people were able to do the math.According to the rumor…she walked in on him eating shrimp cocktail while taking care of business.I’m sorry…this sounds to ridiculous to believe…who does that?Does anyone multitask while doing THAT?I couldn’t imagine eating while doing that…it’s like patting your head & rubbing your belly at the same time! Crap…did I just write “belly”? What am I, 6 6 years old?Brett denies the whole story, and says she is bitter because he once hooked up with her, and didn’t remember who she was the next time they met.
A new survey by Yahoo says that 57% of men &n 71% of women say smoking is “very uncool”…based on this, what is something that even though a lot of people do it, you think it’s “uncool”.What is something that you do that people give you a hard time for?We received a bunch of texts on this…but my favorite was this, because of the irony behind it…after all the person texted this:
Although everyone does it, texting is uncool and antisocial
Here are some of the other texts we received:
Magic the gathering i catch S*** for all the time.
I hate when people write lol in their text from rooskie in rochester ny lol
I get made fun of for playing World of Warcraft my friends are addicted to battlefield, Call of Duty.. But I guess WoW isn't "cool"
Disobey the rules for driving. Matt from Roy. I'm a commercial driver and some people really push their luck.
I think it is very uncool to gage your ears out. It looks ridiculous to see thru someones ear lobe
Something that is very uncool...Steelers and Red Sox, Nuff Said!!!!!
People think it's uncool when I eat shrimp and masturbate.
Kids in they're skinny jeans. Pissed me off.
I get crap because i drink milk with everything i eat. Being healthy is uncool?

Here’s the email of the day…this stems from a story I shared the other day where I said I got my wife in the mood with this strategy:One night we were in the bedroom, and I started jumping up in down like an idiot until my shorts fell off!!!This led to some “fun” time, and BJ and the gang laughed at my stupidity…to which I gave this pearl of wisdom: “Make your woman laugh, and she will get in the mood.”It’s really that simple…have fun with your woman, quit being miserable!!!!Here is what Justin wrote:
Just wanted to thank you on the great tip to jump and make your pants fall down to get laid! I have only seen this chick for a couple time but decided to try it anyways and it worked! YOur a genius and thanks for the help!
It’s about time I am recognized for my genius!!!
BJ read this story to prove that the fact that he always forgets people’s names has nothing to do with his old age…but because he is busy.According to a survey by the office products company Avery, the average person forgets 5 things a day…all because of our hectic lifestyles.Here are the top ten things we forget most often:
1.To return phone calls
2.To reply to emails
4.Sending birthday cards
5.Charging our phones
6.Passwords to different websites
7.Taking meat out of the freezer to defrost it
8.Watering the plants
9.Grabbing print-outs from the printer
10.Taking out the garbage
In San Francisco, California, a guy was ticketed for driving in the carpool lane, and a local reporter named Stanley Roberts filmed it for his 'People Behaving Badly' segment.The driver wasn't happy about being on camera and ripped the reporter. This is hilarious!
I love that this guy is rocking an Elmo shirt!!!! "Fat Ass"
Former baristas Shirley Stagner and Tina Holcombe say they were laid off from the "Hot Java Hunnies" coffee stand in Kent because of their age. Stagner is 47, and Holcombe is 48. The baristas claim their boss wanted to get rid of them to hire younger chicks. The owner, Jim Honnies says age has nothing to do with it. Honnies says over the past couple of years, he's not making any profit and business trickled down to a third of what it was previously. The women filed an age discrimination claim. But the business has only two employees, and a business needs eight before the state will investigate.
Look…I’m not trying to be an insensitive jerk…but yes, you are too old to be a barista.A barista, like many jobs, is a young persons game…you shouldn’t be that old and still doing it…and if the owner is telling the truth, obviously the clientele agree…business is going down…time to freshen up.I like what one person texted in as a suggestion:
They need to open their own "Cougar Coffee" stand. Some people dig that
Based on the fact that these 2 baristas believe they lost their job because of their age…finish this statement…Whether it be a job or anything else in life, “I am…or…you are…too old to do ________.”
You are too old to be a stripper
To old to run a 1/4 Mile marathon.
Too old to wear an Elmo tshirt

Wow…what a great game last night for the Sounders…sadly it was not enough though. This is why Soccer confuses me. Last night was game 2 of the playoffs for them…they won 2-0, and yet…despite winning…they were booted out of the playoffs. Why you ask…well, because they lost to Real Salt Lake on Saturday 3-0, and in the playoffs they play 2 games and the combined, aggregate, score is what determines who moves to the next round. So even though they won 2-0, that’s not enough…they needed to win 4-0 so that the aggregate score would be 4-3. A texter said that they do this to eliminate any kind of home field advantage…I call STUPID on that rationale. Let the better team have home field advantage & play a best of 3 series. Between that, and all the random tournaments happening in the middle of the MLS season (US Open, CONCACAF, etc), I just don’t get soccer…it makes my brain hurt…I will stick with hockey. One thing I do know about soccer is that Kasey Keller rules. Congrats on a great career buddy, 21 years playing pro, and you came home to wrap up the final years of your career…plus you had a sick save in the 80th minute of last nights game. You are the man, Kasey, the man!!!!
In a recent interview, the daughter of Ozzy & Sharon, KELLY OSBOURNE, says, quote, "Having to tell my parents my ex-fiancé Luke had cheated on me with a tranny was so humiliating. She said, "It's hard enough to get your head around someone cheating on you . . . but when that someone is a chick with a [penis]? I'd always thought the worst way to get cheated on would be with an ugly girl."
Based on the fact that Kelly’s family learned that her ex cheated on her with a tranny…what is the oddest thing that you found out about a family member…or…what is the oddest thing that your family learned about you? Here are the texts:
just learned recently that my 19 year old sister was a stripper
My grandma came out of the closet after her 65th birthday and now she lives with a woman she met at church
Hey its jordan in port orchard. The strangest thing i ever learned from my cousin was that she likes beiber. she was quickly disowned.
I found out my wife. Was sleeping with my sisters husband!
It's always fun to find out a group of your friends was involved in a group sex with your sister!!
I found out my dad was a white supremicist when he walked in on my having fun with a black chick.. what a surprise
Haven't seen my cousin for a year and a half and just learned he's on trial for a double murder.
Found out my dad and his brother are cross dressers... Then both my sisters and lesbians. No im not gay and dont cross dress. Josh in lake stevens
I found out in the worst way on how my brother was gay. I walked in his room and he was having sex with another guy.
According to a new study, the average household stores $5,500 worth of junk in their garage… What is something you can’t part with that most people consider junk? Or…what does someone you live with own that you consider junk? Here are some of the texts we received:
My wife refuses to get rid of her tv. We've never used it, because we have three, and it's so old that the only hookup it has is screw-in cable.
About 5000 baseball cards giv or take a couple hundred
My husband has a scorpion tail in a jar that he's had since he was a kid. Wtf are you saving that for?
My wife refuses to get rid of her tv. We've never used it, because we have three, and it's so old that the only hookup it has is screw-in cable.
My wife has, not joking, three ceramic urns full of ashes from three cats she had before we even met. They stay carefully packed in a box in our basement
I keep a unopened old can of dip that was my grandpas. It's 9 years old.
I have a pro wrestling ring in my garage i havent used in 2 years but cant part with selling cause ive put about $4000 into
I still have TWO working betamax machines. :)
Today's video blog is short and to the point. it could be the dumbest, yet most awesome thing I have witnessed...while at the Dallas Stars vs. New Jersey Devils game in Dallas, Texas last weekend...BJ and I witnessed the best between periods entertainment. They set up giant bowling pis...had a giant human slingshot...and fired a person on a sled off at the pins! The Seattle Thunderbirds hockey team needs to start doing this!
The pencil stabber is at it again…man this guy cracks me up. Remember the dude from Everett that stabbed his lawyer with a pencil back in May…only to get a new lawyer, and stab that guy with a pencil a few days later? Well yesterday he stabbed his new layer…only this time he used a pen…I guess to make it more permanent! Waka Waka. What a nut case…could you imagine being in the courtroom when this happened? This guy is nuts! Keep writing utensils away from him already!
During sports, I reported that former Huskies QB Mark Brunell is broke! This is nuts…he played for the Jags in the NFL for 8 seasons…made over 50 million bucks, and due to bad investments & lawsuits, he is a broke fella. I can’t believe this. Look, I know you have children to feed & a lawn to mow…but how do you blow 50 million bucks? That seriously takes effort! I guess he invested in real estate, and also a burger joint. OK..how do you fail at a burger joint? Call it Brunell’s Burger Joint…it would be a hit in Jacksonville…Ok, apparently not…as he is broke. The funny part is that here is a guy that played in the NFL & made a ton of cash…only to piss it away…and then you have Ryan Leaf, former WSU QB, who never made it in the NFL and battled addiction…yet I read that he still has a lot of the money that he got when he signed with the Chargers back in the day. So this guy, who was all hopped up of stuff, yet was still smart with his money…and Brunell is broke? Makes me scratch my bald head. We got a great text regarding this story:
Leaf has his money and brunell is broke? Who coug'd it now?!!? go cougs!!!!!
HUGE thanks to Jason Bonham for joining us this morning.Jason joined us to chat about the 40th Anniversary of Led Zeppelin’s IV…an album that came out November 8th 1971.Jason has a great tribute band called Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin’s Experience where they not only play the music that his dad played drums on (John Bonham), but he also shares stories about the band too.He was an awesome interview…we learned some great stories about his dad, Led Zep in general, and we also learned that he is hung like a horse.During the interview he was in the middle of a text exchange with Robert Plant…how awesome is that!Here is his band playing a classic track off of Led Zep’s 4th record…Black Dog:
Looking back at that record…I forgot how awesome of a album it is….check out the track list…classic song after classic song after classic song!!!!
1. "Black Dog"
2. "Rock and Roll"
3. "The Battle of Evermore"
4. "Stairway to Heaven"
5. "Misty Mountain Hop"
6. "Four Sticks"
7. "Going to California"
8. "When the Levee Breaks"
He shared a great story about when they recorded the final track “When The Levee Breaks” where John set the drums up in a hallway, and that’s where they kept the drums for the recording…the swagger on that opening drum part is amazing.
We got this text after the interview:
I love when the levee breaks! I had sex in the shower listening to it, so everytime i hear it, brings back gooood memories
We got these texts as well based on the interview:
WHAT A STUD! Thanks guys n thanks Jason!!! You guys know about the Led Zeppelin bridge in Renton?
That was one of the best interviews you guys have ever done, awesome. -Marshall from Lynnwood-
According to the Great Place to Work Institute, Microsoft is the best place to work in the world. They credited Microsoft’s focus on volunteerism, the work-life balance of its employees, and the health benefits those employees are offered. Rounding out the top five were SAS, NetApp, Google, and FedEx. Four of the top five places to work were software companies. The CEO of the Great Place to Work institute told USA Today that all the high-ranking firms on the list shared three traits: employee trust in management, pride in the company, and camaraderie with colleagues.I’m not surprised that Microsoft topped the list…BJ & I have been to the campus, and it’s awesome…seriously, it’s like a college campus for adults!
Microsoft has been named the best place to work in the world…based on this…what’s the best place you have ever worked at…or….what’s the worst? Here are the texts we got:
the best place I have ever worked is where I am working right now, at Chi Psi fraternity as the head chef. It is an awesome job, I am the only one in charge, no politics or childish games. The best part though is all the college ass walking around. These babes where next to nothing and the clingiest pants I have ever seen. Can you say Camel Toe all over the place, god I love College life,,lol.

Today's Video Blog is an Intern Challenge. Our intern Hot Kyle has 60 seconds to get a hot chick to give him her phone number. Do you think he will do it?
The big news is Kim Kardashian & her husband…some NBA dude…are getting divorced. Oh what a sad day. This is a pretty interesting story because they have only been married for 72 days or something like that! 72 days, and calling it quits…wow…I wonder if that gift I bouth them from their registry can be returned to me! Clearly I am kidding….I didn’t buy them a gift, I wasn’t invited to their big day, but there should be a rule…if you don’t make it a year in your marriage, you should have to return all the gifts you received from your “Big Day.” I guess the guy doesn’t want to get divorces, but it’s out of his hands as Kim, and her ass…wants him gone. Kim cited the rarely used reason for the relationship ending: irreconcilable differences. That’s lame…the least she could do is do a solid for him & do the same thing that was reported when J-LO left Marc Anthony…there were rumors that his Johnson was too big for Jenny From The Block. What a great headline: Kim Leaves NBA Guy: His Mule Was Too Much To Handle. One texter did bring up a solid point…
Kim boned ray j. She can handle big *****...
A new study was done by 60 Minutes & Vanity Fair (talk about a power couple right there), and it said that 62% of Americans could not run for office because of their “checkered” past. This is complete bull crap. This is why I have issues with catholic religion…follow me on this, as it’s not a slam on religion…heck I play drums for my chuch!!! I always thought it was dumb that priests can’t have sex, or get married…we are really shrinking the pool of quality people to become priests, which then leads to all the messed up stories we have about priests. Eliminate that silly rule, and I guarantee you will attract some quality human beings to become priests. I feel the exact same way about political figures. Let them have a messed up past…you did drugs? No biggie. You used to have orgy’s? Not a problem. Who care what stupid things you did in your 20’s…If the only person we can vote for is someone that has been squeaky clean their whole life, the pool starts shrinking. Plus do you really think they are sqwaky clean? No…they are just doing all that they can to hide it. Give me a guy that is proud that he smoked week and choked a bitch (in a mutually accepting way of course) in his 20’s and lived to become a better man!!! Give me Topshelf for President!
BJ has effectively given me yet another reason why I don’t like using Twitter. Here is today’s example…
BJ gets a tweet from a guy named Anthony that says:
@BJShea @stp999 needs an intern to fetch him things.
the problem is that @stp999 does have someone in his life who fetches his "thing."
A few weeks ago, 23-year-old Reid Hilinski of North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania was out drinking at the bar at a motel called the Conley Inn. He got drunk, went to the bathroom, ended up passing out and hit his head on the sink on the way down. The bartender found him there and he was embarrassed, so he panicked and said two guys from the bar had beaten him up and robbed him.He actually described two guys who he'd seen at the bar that night.The cops went and arrested them.Eventually, the cops sorted things out and figured out Reid had lied.He's facing two misdemeanor counts of false reporting.The funny part of this story is that the 2 guys that were falsely arrested turned out to be wanted in Ohio for undisclosed crimes.
Based on this story...finish this sentence: “I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I once injured myself doing _________."Here are some of the texts we got:
Caught myself on fire siphoning gas
Broke my wrist jumping on a pogo stick in the garage
i am not embaressed but i injured myself coughing from broncitus and broke a rib.
One time I was injured because i had a model rocket blow up in my face. I spent a few days in harborview, it wouldnt be the last time.
I ripped my nipple ring out after it got caught on my watch while I was sleeping
Manscaping with hair clippers not good times Ouch :(
Broke my hand playing wii boxing when i accidentally punched my cousin in the head
I once missed my snare drum and hit myself in my boys with full force
Last Wednesday, 60-year-old Laura Chavez of Santa Fe, New Mexico and her 48-year-old boyfriend, Clyde Smith, were playing Monopoly.Laura's 10-year-old grandson was also playing. According to the grandson, Laura thought Clyde was cheating.He didn't elaborate on how Clyde was cheating, but it pissed off Laura.She ended up hitting Clyde over the head with a glass bottle…then picked up a kitchen knife and started stabbing him over and over.When the cops got there, Clyde was bleeding heavily.He was rushed to the hospital, where he's in stable condition. Laura was arrested and taken directly to jail, and charged with aggravated battery on a household member with a deadly weapon and battery on a law enforcement officer.Yup…do not pass go, no $200 bucks…waka waka.Oddly enough…this isn’t the first time that Monopoly led to violence.Last year, a couple fought over Monopoly, and eventually the woman pulled a gun and fired it . . . straight into the man's groin.
Getting into a huge fight because of Monopoly seems like a pretty stupid thing to fight about, so based on this…what was the dumbest reason you got into a fight? Here are some of the texts we got:
