Holy smokes what a great weekend! Lets start with Friday. Friday night all of us from KISW went to Fremont for a party with the Rock-A-Holics to sample Workers No. 9 Vodka at Fremont Mischief Distillery. Great drinks, fun times, and then as I am walking around…who did I run into? Check it out:
Yes, that’s Jason Newsted…former bassist of Metallica! Jason has a new record out with his band Newsted called “Heavy Metal Music”, and it seriously rocks. I love the disc. Jason was in town to do an interview with The Men’s Room Friday afternoon, and then a very cool Q & A at Silver Platters…oh, he also co-hosted Metal Shop with Kevin & Ian Saturday night…how awesome is that!
Saturday I had a great night with the family, and watched the Huskies dominate with their sick new helmets…how awesome is Bishop Sankey by the way?
Sunday was an intense day…I don’t know which was more intense, the series finale of Breaking Bad, or the Hawks game? Ok…the answer is simple, even though Breaking Bad was amazing…the Hawks game had my heart pounding out of my chest! Awesome win…to rally from a 20-3 deficit to win in OT 23 to 20…wow wow wow. Even Lulu was in shock!
Speaking of Breaking Bad…if you listened to our show on Friday, I mentioned how I was going to watch the finale, even though I have only seen the first 2 episodes of season 1. Well I did it, thankfully a listener named Greg for sending this video to me as it helped get me up to speed in 8 minutes haha
So I watched the finale, and I think my tweets summed it up best:
On Friday we were at our Workers No. 9 party at Fremont Mischief Distillery, and Jason Newsted (formerly of Metallica) was hanging with us! The STP-CAST caught up with Jason while there to chat about his awesome new CD "Heavy Metal Music". His new band is called Newsted.
If this was Twitter or Instagram, I would say #GoHawks, because…well…that’s what the kids do these days.
Speaking of Hash Tags, have you seen that bit that Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake did? It’s hilarious…and spot on!
While we are gaterered around the internet equivalent of the Tee Vee…have you seen the short film that was made for Pearl Jam’s new record “Lighning Bolt”? The record is out in a few weeks, and I am so pumped for this record, I think it’s going to be a great one!
We were talking about their song Sirens this morning, and I was telling BJ how this song is quickly becoming one of my all time fave PJ songs…it’s so good! One texter even brought up a great observation…
STP, Sirens reminds me of Mother Love Bone ... which is a good thing!
This is the video of the day…Earlier this month, a reporter named Sabrina Rodriguez was reporting live from a wine and music festival in Northern California . . . and for some reason she was standing with a baboon named Mickey. Then a few seconds into the report, Mickey decided to fully cup Sabrina's right BREAST . . . and hung on for a solid 15 seconds with a huge baboon SMILE on his face.
No…that baboon is not a fan of grapes…he’s a fan of melons! Waka Waka!
For some reason the guys think I look like that baboon when he smiles…I don’t see it, but OK.
Crazy things seem to happen to reports when it involves grapes…lets never forget this classic moment:
I got this message from a fellow Rock-A-Holic named Steve…please check it out and support the cause!

This morning we got talking about that time we recorded “God Bless America” with Jonathan Jayne. Jonathan was the cast off on American Idol that’s from here that the judges were super douches too back in the day, and we got to know and love the kid…and his big dream was to sing/record “God Bless America”, so Thrill and I gathered some of our friends and we went in a studio (Orbit Studios) to record it:
According to a new survey from Canada, 47% of people say they're currently, quote, "LIVING THE DREAM" at their job. That's almost half of people who are working at their dream job. 65% of people say they look forward to going into the office each day.
Almost half of people say they're currently "living the dream" at work…is this you? If not, what would it take for you to be “living the dream” at work? Here are some of the texts we got:
I'm living the dream because I get to drive around all day and listen to you on KISW. Thanks a lot guys you rock
I'm living the dream! You know, because nightmares are dreams too.
I love my job I work as a vet tech 3 to 4 long days a week. Dream job would need to be closer home with a better boss.
I'm living the dream currently at the age of 23. I am a chef and own a very successful restaurant business.
My dream job is to be professional fighter, my debut is in November. Next step is to make enough to not have to work at the same time
Nope. I like to stay busy but this is not my dream job. My dream job would be to own a gaming store. Tabletop and video that had a bar and a stripper pole Cajun
If waking up and cold calling is a dream job then yes I'm in heaven. As great as it is to get hung up on, I would turn around and go back home today if I could
I work at Nintendo in the video game testing department and for me Monday is the best day of the week. I love my job.
I love my job! I'm a baker and go to culinary school for baking. I get to spend all my time in a kitchen, covered in flour. Its awesome!
I get to fix other peoples $100,000 cars for a living.. It's pretty sweet

"Life & Style" magazine shared an interesting story about Gwyneth Paltrow when she’s at the gym. A source says, "Before she showers she makes someone go into the stall and wipe the entire shower dry. She refuses to touch what she calls 'somebody else's shower water.'" That's not all . . . "She also refuses to use toilet paper that anyone has touched and demands an unopened package." Gwyneth's rep says none of this is true.
Now that is an odd quirk…so what about you? Based on this, what is your odd quirk? Here are some of the texts we got:
Have to use half a roll of tp on the toilet seat before I even get close to that thing...
My odd quirk is I can't have my windshield wipers on automatic or I have count the seconds till the next wipe. It drives me insane. So I just let my windshield get to the point where I can't see then let the wipers do the magic. Brad
I have to blow my nose with baby wipes nothing else.
I will only order customized food at fast food restaurants to make sure it didn't sit under a heat lamp.
My fiancé quirk is a hat on the bed. If I leave a hat on the bed she freaks. I've learned don't do it!!! Michael in Redmond
This was actually my ex and it was so weird but whenever he scratched "himself" he smelled his fingers.
I cannot eat meat that's on the bone. I have to strip everything off of the bone and then eat it. Wings are a no go on all occasions.
I check my computer three times to make sure I cleared the porn history
So there is all this crazy talk about Breaking Bad. I guess it’s a popular show. Hell, if you heard BJ this morning you learned that there are three monumental moments in life you can’t miss: Your wedding, the birth of your child, and the series finale of Breaking Bad this Sunday. I’m sold…I’m going to watch it. I have only watched 2 episodes of the show, the very first two, so I sure hope they give a good re-cap before it airs. I think I will live Tweet while watching it, I’m sure my tweets will look like this:
I have no idea what’s going on. Who is that guy? #BreakingBadFinale
My brother found an old pic of me…how sick do I look in this shirt?
Honestly I would rock that shirt if it was an XL!
Speaking of sizes…can we push for a new law that says all clothing manufactures need to have their clothes sized the exact same? Over the weekend my wife and I went to The Rack, and I found 2 shirts that were pretty cool (not as cool as the shirt above, but what is?)…one was slightly too tight and was an XL, and the other was a Large…and it was too loose? I deal with the same crap with shoes…one brand I am a size 13 (that’s right ladies! Waka Waka), and another pair I am a size 11. This is stupid. C’mon politicians, this needs to be addressed. I can’t order crap online…don’t even get me going on pant sizes.
President Barack Obama says he hasn't had a cigarette in years – thanks to first lady Michelle Obama. Obama was chatting with a guy about this, and he said that he does not smoke anymore because, “I'm scared of my wife."
Based on this…we all have to quit stuff because our significant other wants us to, so what about you? What did your significant other make you quit? Here are some of the texts we got:
I stopped talking to the guys I've had some sort of romantic interest in or relationship in the past with because my boyfriend is jealous of them.
Gave up job being bartender at strip club... Was making 1000+ a week in the early 80s
Stopped drinking and smoking when my girl got a DUI.
I quit having sex with other women because she wante to spend more time together
I stopped saying 'for reals' because it drove my husband nuts
My wife quickly put the kibosh on the bikini coffee stands when she saw my bank statement. Use cash!!!
Go Hawks! What an awesome win yesterday! Big thanks to Doug Baldwin for joining us on the show…did you see that sick catch he made…with one hand? You could give me 6 or 7 hands…while also being weird, I wouldn’t have been able to catch that pass! Check it out:
Here is a link to a higher quality video of the catch:
Also, Doug has a fun show on You Tube called The Fresh Files…check out the latest episode:
I wanted to share this as I think it’s an awesome story. My buddy Jeff Angell is the frontman of Walking Papers (the band that features Duff McKagan, and Barrett Martin). He posted this on his Facebook page, and as a fellow musician (ok…fin…I’m a drummer not a musician Waka Waka)…I read this with as much enthusiasm as he probably had when writing this:
So today was the last day of the Uproar tour. It was a fantastic experience. I made some new friends, melted many faces, saw some new places and learned all sorts of things about parking lots.
When I was a kid there were a handful of bands that had a huge impact on me musically. Three of those bands would be Guns n Roses, Jane's Addiction and Alice in Chains. To be on tour with Duff in our band and opening side shows with Jane's was already mind numbing. But wait, there's more!
I saw Alice in Chains play their second show at the Renton Musician Hall when they were still called Diamond Lie. I immediately went home and started writing songs of my own. I was young enough to draw pictures of them on my book covers in junior high school and I started planning my weekends around getting from Tacoma to Seattle to see them play. On one such expedition I saw them at The Kent Skate King along with Mother Love Bone, War Babies and Tramp Alley. I was still an awkward teenager and didn't quite know how to fit in but I was meant to be there. I was at the show when they changed there name to Alice in Chains from Diamond Lie and I saw them perform both "I Can't Remember" and "Sea of Sorrow" for the first time anywhere.
I have to say Alice in Chains made rock n roll tangible for me.
I was at the Moore Theater for the Seattle Music Awards where they played another song for its first time. It was "Rooster."
Today, the last day of the tour I was invited by Jerry Cantrell to perform "Rooster" on stage with them in front of thousands of people and I was about as happy as a tornado in a trailer park! I felt like I was a beneficiary of the make a wish foundation or something. Hell I also sang Man in the box with their techs during sound check.
Alice in Chains was kind enough to bring us out on this tour and what an exclamation point to put on the end of the 5 weeks we've done together!
After all they've endured as a band and as people, they came out the other end a monstrous band as well as considerate characters and today I was again blessed by there generosity! What a day! Here is a photo of my warming up on one of Jerry's older guitars.
I also saw them perform
What a great story, and I am so happy to see all the success that Jeff is getting with Walking Papers, if you haven't picked up their record yet...do so, it's an awesome album.
Ellen Degeneres is the Most Likeable Woman in Hollywood, according to a recent survey. Ellen got 35.1% of the vote, followed by Jennifer Lawrence with 17.7% and Emma Stone with 13.4%. Rounding out the Top 5 were Jennifer Hudson with 12.5% and Zooey Deschanel with 8.5%.
I 100% agree with this, as this morning both Toppy & I had to come clean with our love for Ellen. One day she somehow came up during a conversation off air, and both of our wives watch the show, and when it’s on we both watch it and like it. Within minutes of admitting to this, look at what someone Tweeted us…Too Funny!
Based on this…finish this sentence… “I know I shouldn’t like _____, but I do!” Here are the texts we got:
My little pony. Helps to have a girlfriend who has loved it since childhood.
As a dude i know i shouldnt like jt (justin timberlake). But after some of his movies and his snl skits i have to give him mad props!

Stp and toppy, I'm with ya on Ellen. She's amazing. I know i shouldn't like her, but Adele has a special place in my playlist. Amazing voice, so much passion in her music, and defies the stereotype in Hollywood.
