STP's BLOG 03/31/14 "The Tonight Show!"
Emerald City Comicon was this past weekend.  Did you go to ECCC?  Vicky was there… A. Her costume rules, even though I have no idea who she is, and B. The Muppets that she got a pic with look awesome, especially my man, Animal!

I know that I am stating the obvious, but DAMN Jimmy Fallon has been knocking it outta the park as host of the Tonight Show!   I came across this clip…and this once again reminds me of Johnny Carson!  I’m a huge fan of Johnny, I grew up watching him and always loved the bits he did and the way he interacted with his guests…even though I love Letterman, and think that Kimmel and Conan are great…no one has been able to garner comparisons to Johnny until Fallon.  The crazy part is that I never expected to like Jimmy, I thought he was a fun like-able guy, but the man is doing the legacy of the Tonight Show justice with his version.  Here are a couple examples…this one is with Billy Joel:

I loved this bit with AHH-NOLD…

I just love the attention to detail on this one that features Kevin Bacon going back to his “Footloose” days!

And now… a cute picture of Lulu…peeking in on me….

STP's BLOG 03/28/14 "One Demanding Puppy"
If you aren’t my SnapChat bud, you really are missing out on some quality “snaps” like this…

Hit me up on SnapChat…my name is STP9

So our pup, Lulu, is a very demanding pup.  If you don’t show her attention she will either slam her tail on the couch until you rub her belly…or she will just stare at one of us and growl…it’s hilarious!

Today's video Blog features a moment during our interview with Nick Frost, where we read some text messages for him.  Plus the Rev presents to him a Bacon drawing he made. 
Listen to the whole interview HERE:  

Here is the same video if you are on your phone...

STP's BLOG 03/27/14 "Nick Frost & Daniel Bryan"
Today was a star studded event!  Big thanks to Nick Frost for joining us!  You know Nick from Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul, The World’s End, etc...and he is starring in a new film called Cuban Fury, which is out April 11th.

 photo froststp_zps7603a89a.jpg

Also on the show…WWE Superstar, and my opinion…the future WWE Champ, Daniel Bryan!  Daniel is taking on Triple H in what I think many would agree is the most anticipated match at Wrestlemania 30.  If our boy from Aberdeen beat “The Game”, he will then get to be in the main event… a triple threat match between Randy Orton and Batista.  I’m calling it right now…Daniel is leaving New Orleans with the title.

Colorado's governor, John Hickenlooper, used to brew beer for a living, and now he has new beer taps in his home… Yes, there are now beer taps in the governor’s mansion! How cool is this?  That is some straight up Rob Ford style of politics haha!  I don’t blame him, if I was Governor and someone wanted to turn my basement into a small hockey rink for me and my bro’s to play some pick up hockey….you bet your ass I would get that!  What about you? 

What odd thing do you have in your home, or would like in your home?  Here are some of the texts we got:
I'm a hockey player like STP, I would have an ice rink. Josh, Everett

A theater size popcorn popper Oly garbage man

I want a batcave in my house. All the gadgets, outfits, everything. Then... I can become batman. :-D
I have a Snapple fridge filled with beer in slider racks. It's awesome offering someone a beer

I think it'd be awesome to have a professional movie set for making XXX films in my house. I could rent it out an watch the magic happen. That sounded a lot better in my head before I actually typed it out.

A bowling alley would be awesome! Or an indoor the trap range!

I wish I had a wood fired brick oven for making pizza.

My housewarming present to myself was a Jager machine like you see at the bars. Ice cold Jager at the push of a button

BJ: I have an aquarium in my home, and I don't mean 1 fish tank. I have close to 100 tanks in my home. My husband and I breed freshwater aquarium fish. --jess

Hey Toppy... STP I want a Trapper's Sushi bar in my man cave! Going for A.Y.C.E. laters... LAKEWOOD LARRY...

STP's BLOG 03/26/14 "Ayron Jones on the STP-CAST!"
Another great win last night for the T-Birds!  It was Two For Tuesday at the Showare Centrer, game 3 of the first round of the WHL playoffs…and once again the T-Birds and the Everett Silvertips treated all of us to a great game.  It went to overtime, and Matthew Barzal from the Birds scored to win it!  it!

The highlight of the game had nothing to do with the game…it had everything to do with a conversation I overheard with two drunk dudes sitting next to me..  I tweeted about it…
 photo tweetcoolbird_zpsb028063a.jpg

Huge thanks to Ayron Jones for coming in yesterday to perform on the STP-CAST. 
 photo ayrontp_zps745ca8f0.jpg
If you haven’t heard Ayron Jones & The Way, you are missing out.  Check them out here: www.ajandtheway.com .  These guys have a raw bluesy sound that really strikes a nerve with me.  I need to see them live, and I hope to in the near future. 

Ayron’s voice and songs are damn good…one of my favorite songs off of his debut CD “Dream” is a song called “My Love Remains”, and he performed it on the STP-CAST yesterday.  If you missed it, Listen to the full podcast on iTUNES or Stitcher (search STP-CAST) or HERE

STP's BLOG 03/25/14 "T-Birds Playoff Hockey!"
If you don’t have plans tonight…you should totally go to the Seattle T-Birds game!  It’s playoff time, and the T-Birds and the Everett Silvertips are facing each other in the playoffs for the first time, and the first 2 games have been awesome…so far the Birds are up 2-0 in the best of 7 series!  Tonight is 2 For Tuesday… 2 tix for the price of one, 2 dollar beers, 2 dollar hot dogs, etc!  You know I’ll be there!  Get tix HERE:
Playoff hockey is so exciting…the guys battle all 60 seconds (UPDATE: They also play hard the other 59 minutes haha), and on Saturday I went to the Showare Center for game one, and the place was rocking!

 photo blog2_zpse20c729d.jpg
The T-Birds goalie, Taran Kozun, put on a clinic, he faced 39 shots (19 shots in the second period alone) and only let up one goal to lead his team to a “W”!
 photo blog3_zpsa7842c47.jpg
When the game ended, I love it when the players show some love to the fans….
 photo blog4_zps5d2964db.jpg
Before we went to the game, of course we had to hit up the Trappers Sushi in Kent Station, it was so damn good…and yes, I ate my own roll (the STP Roll).
 photo blog1_zps4e5b9e6d.jpg
This morning we were talking about this… a new survey asked couples to name the top trivial things they fight over most often.  Here are the top six . . .

1.  The remote.
2.  Things that make bills slightly more expensive.
3.  Taking out the trash.
4.  Other household chores, like dishes and laundry.
5.  Who cooks dinner.
6.  Who has to get out of bed to turn the lights off.
 And now...a funny picture of Lulu…post-shower…

STP's BLOG 03/19/14 "Cam Girlz"
This week’s STP-CAST might be our best yet...it’s a very random and fun interview with a local cam-girl named Aella.  She, and director Sean Dunne joined us to talk about the film he is making “Cam Girlz” – get more info at www.camgirlzdoc.com

This is a behind the scenes moment from the STP-CAST with our bud GregR from The End, and web cam girl Aella, as I learned that she is a fan of the Rubik’s Cube, and GregR is a master of the “Cube”....

Check out the entire interview with Aella and Sean on my podcast this week...it’s a good one!  You can find it on Stitcher, iTUNES (search for STP-Cast), or HERE!
So I know that I have blogged about Golden Tate before, but I have to share this.  As I have said before, I don’t blame Golden one bit for leaving...and I get why the Hawks didn’t want to pay him as much as the Lions.  I do not understand why Hawks fans are freeaking out, some people need to get their panties out of that bunch that they are dealing with. 

That being said, I think Golden needs to stay off Twitter for a bit...feeding the trolls will never fix things, he needs to just deal with the fact that there will be a vocal minority on Twitter that is going to troll him about leaving.  I did enjoy this exchange with Golden and a Hawks fan named Melissa, especially when another fan named Shane steps in to support Golden...it’s hilarious, some serious Twitter Drama. Here it is, feel free to act it out in your head with some silly voices:
Golden Tate: It's crazy how I gave everything to a group of people, and they still feel I owe them something. #keepitclassy
Melissa:  by you leaving it shows your money hungry, where you start you finish.
Golden Tate:  and this tweet just shows you have clue about anything...
Shane: a disgrace to our fan base. Applaud the man that played a huge role in our only SB win, not disrespect. #GoHawks
Melissa: get off my twitter, yo
Shane: no, you get off mine.
Shane: from the sound of it, you were the one bitter. Gtfo here lol. Go back to your cave.
Melissa : its called a home, by bitch
Shane: no, it's called a cave, you troll.
Today’s Video Blog features the new Rock Girls...here they are strutting their stuff at our party on Friday at the Tulalip Casino.  If you want to see pix, go HERE.

STP's BLOG 03/18/14 "Celeb Siri"
This morning we somehow got talking about Siri, and I mentioned how I’m surprised that they haven’t unveiled a line of “celebrity” Siri voices…especially for someone like BJ, who is a big Star Wars fan, they could have  a Yoda Siri.  I thought it would be awesome to have a Flavor Flav Siri/GPS… as we are talking about this, the text’s start flying in about other celebrity Siri voices…here are some of them:
How about Jason Statham
Sean Connery siri!
Ozzy voice
Washed up axle rose siri
How about Darth Vader?
Sean Connery Siri would be awesome
I've always wanted Barry White syrie
Liam niesin Siri
I'd do R2-D2 Siri so I wouldn't understand it without C3-PO Siri
Hulk Hogan siri
Transformer voice gps and siri
Samuel L Jackson SIRI?
Pennywise the Clown Siri
morgan freeman voice!!!

More pictures have been posted from our Meet The Rock Girl party…these 2 might be my favorites…

STP's BLOG 03/14/14 "Jesse from Breaking Bad!"
Have I mentioned how awesome “Need For Speed” is?  It's awesome! It’s in theaters as of today…here is a trailer:

The film stars Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad…it was awesome last month when we had Aaron in studio with director Scott Waugh, and I got to share with him the story behind me becoming a fan of Breaking Bad!

STP's BLOG 03/13/14 "See Ya Golden Tate!"
Man, everyone is talking about Golden Tate as he decided to sign with the Detroit Lions.  Most people are showing him love and thanking him for helping the team win the Super Bowl, but some people were losing their minds yesterday.  I don’t get it.  So I tweeted about it….
 photo tatetweet_zps36ed8ff1.jpg
I know, I know…he said in an interview that he would take less to stay here…and I bet if the deals were very close he would have…but he’s getting over 12 million guaranteed!  For an NFL player, that’s the most important part of the deal…yes, he got a 5 year deal for over 30 million…but if the team decides to cut him next year or before the 5 years are up, he won’t get all the money.  Sure it’s a game and a passion for us fans, but it’s a business at the end of the day.  Plus…the Hawks will be fine...until they give me reason to worry, Pete & John have made smart decisions since they started running the organization. 
Tomorrow if you are looking for a movie to go out and see…I highly recommend checking out Need For Speed…it’s the movie based on the video game that stars Aaron Paul, Jesse from Breaking Bad.  If you like fast paced action films with great car chase/race scenes…this is right up your ally!  Just recently we were lucky enough to have Aaron in studio…as a Breaking Bad fan, that was an awesome experience!

STP's BLOG 03/12/14 "#1 Star Wars Fan"
This morning we started off with BJ replaying a few of the finer moments from the STP-CAST. 

Over the years the guys have learned that I pronounce words differently than most…like the word “ruin” – I say “roon”. Last week, Toppy called me out for how I say YOLK... 

Well on this week’s STP-CAST, I butchered another word…and it all stemmed from our voicemail segment when a “Titanic Douche” left a message for us…

On this week’s  STP-CAST we Celebrate 3/11 day...the guys "troll" me, and well... Topshelf Kisw wrote this blurb about this weeks show, and it sums it up best!

STP's BLOG 03/11/14 "Moses Bread Re-Signs!"
I am so pumped that the hawks re-signed Michael Bennett!  A, he’s a monster out on the field and you can’t let a guy like that go…between him and Cliff Avril, our pass rushing is the best in the league, I would’ve hated to see what would have happened without him.  Not to mention I would hate to see him do the “Ravishing” Rick Rude dance with another team…

Plus…and more importantly…he has the best Twitter handle in all of sports:


Have you seen the new segment that the NFL network is doing with Michael and his brother  martellus?  It’s a fun watch…check it out!

A new YouTube video called "The Ice Cream Van" is making the rounds….have you seen it…I feel bad laughing as the kid cries, but I am sure he is OK, and it’s pretty damn funny….

STP's BLOG 03/10/14 "Bad Trip!"
BJ was a casualty of Daylight Savings Time…he was late this morning because of it.  But the show must go on, so the “B” team took over…as Toppy and I talked about the big stories of the day.  Ok, we hit on one story…but, my friends, this is the only story that matters today!

Last week, a 24-year-old named Ronnie  and his 31-year-old girlfriend Jessica bought some steak at a Walmart in Tampa, Florida.  Then they took it home, cooked it up, and ate it with their two young daughters.

After they finished eating . . . everything started looking strange…Because their Walmart steak was LACED WITH LSD.

Could you even imagine that?  I can’t!  Damn!  The crazy part is that Jessica was 9 months pregnant!!!  I’m getting tripped out by this story and all I have had this morning is coffee! 
They went to the hospital, and doctors had to INDUCE LABOR while Ronnie and their daughters were on breathing tubes. Fortunately, everyone turned out okay . . . and Jessica and her new baby son were released a few days later.

Even thought this has nothing to do with the story…whenever I think of people tripping on acid, I think of this scene from Hot Rod… when Dave is trippin’ his face off!

Lots of changes for the Hawks in the off season…sadly Red Bryant is off to Jacksonville to play with the Jaguars, or as I like to call them, the “Junior Hawks”.  One guy that was picked up in the off season was Travis Beckum…Travis is a tight end, we shall see how he does on the field, but I think you will agree with me that based on his off the field antics…he will be loved in the North West!  Check out this video off of his Instagram page!

STP's BLOG 03/07/14 "Go Sounders!"
Tomorrow the Sounders kick (no pun intended) off their season at home…and I came across a great soccer inspired video.  If you want to run on the field during a sporting event and NOT get tackled by security, you just have to be a kid!

During a soccer match between Brazil and South Africa on Wednesday, a little kid somehow got down on the field and started running around.  Here is the best part…he didn’t get into trouble, instead the players lifted him in the air and did an impromptu photo shoot with him.  Check it out!

STP's BLOG 03/06/14 "Throwback Thursday"
You just never know what is going to happen when you first turn on the stations text line (7-7-9-9-9) … this was the first text I saw…
 photo tweet_zps46f8f7a6.jpg
The kids on the internets love doing this #ThrowbackThursday, and I found a good one…this stems from my college days…I was clearly going through a Mike Patton phase!
 photo stpincollege_zpsdfa75678.jpg

Speaking of College, I came across this awesome promo that I made with my bud’s Joe & Scott.  This was at the height of the Beastie Boys “Sabotage” video…so we spoofed it.  Our head engineer in the communications department wasn’t thrilled when he found out that we hung out of a car with a school video camera that was tens of thousands of dollars in cost at the time.  Here is the video…yes, that skinny guy running is me with hair!

We came across this list of things men over 30 should just NEVER wear.
1.  Fedoras.
2.  Choker necklaces.
3.  Dangly earrings.
4.  Skull jewelry.
5.  Fake tanner.
6.  A wrist full of bracelets.
7.  Crocs.
8.  Sports jerseys customized with their name on the back.
9.  Backwards hats.
10.  Mohawks.
Based on this list…I’m doing OK, as I don’t do any…I’m closed on a couple, but I don’t do exactly what is listed (cough wear jerseys with a players name on them cough).

It doesn’t have to be just clothes…what is something you shouldn’t do over 30?  Or…what is something you wish you could still do, but you are “too old” for that?  Here are some of the texts we got…
I wish I could still be banging my wife. But I'm diabetic and 45, and not everything works anymore. And she's refusing adding Viagra to the situation u ntil I can get my blood sugar levels under control.
though tempting after 30 taking a beer bong seems a little too adolescent as if ur trying to relive some old memory u want to get back...Frank the TANK! Lol
People over 30 shouldn't be going to 'the club'. That's just creepy.
My dad is over 50 years old and he still shops at zumiez and Pac sun. I'm 19 and I don't even shop that stuff for high schoolers
Video games my wife is always telling me I am too old for video games. I'm 36 and I rock the hell out of my backwards hat.
Women that wear sweats with words on the butt.
After 30 everyone should stop talking like they are from the "hood", no one should talk like that in general but over 30 you sound like a idiot
Wish I could do general admission at concerts. Just to darn old to stand there for 4 hours to see a band.
im getting too old to take drugs like lsd, molly,ect love the show, joe

Today's video blog is a Throwback Thursday!  Here is an old video of me in college... lesson learned, don't let college kids host a TV show under a herbal influence!

STP's BLOG 03/05/14 "Arnold & Travolta"
The online cooking show "Epic Meal Time" just did an episode with Arnold Schwarzenegger, where they cooked a huge steak-and-egg sandwich on top of Arnold's tank...yes…AH-NOLD has a TANK!  A Tank!  Did I mention that he owns a TANK?!? He has a Patton tank, from the Korean War.  The sandwich was made with OSTRICH eggs, and had more than 78,000 calories. Check it out…

So people are beating up John Travolta…because he screwed up a name at the Oscars (he called Idina Menzel "Adele Dazeem").  People really need to lighten up…we all have screwed up like this, if you missed it, here it is:

So someone came up with a funny Name Generator where you type in your name and it will “Travoltafy” your name.  What's your “Travoltified” name? 

Travoltafy Your Name
Here are ours….
BJ Shea:  Brooke Scone
Me: Shae Thompseen
Vicky B: Vincent Bruwn
The Rev:  Troy Reez
Hot Kyle: Hope Keezy
Joe The Prodigy: Jae Thompseen (apparently in the eyes of Travolta, we are related)
My favorite of all of the names that are “Travoltafied” is Toppys…when you type in Topshelf, this is the name that comes up:  THOMAS!  Thomas?  That’s it?  I’m calling Toppy Thomas from now on!

Whenever I talk about John Travolta, I always think of this awesome song by Mr. Bungle...

If you aren’t listening to the podcast (STP-CAST) that I do with Topshelf, I mean Thomas, Mono-Nick, and The Rev…you are missing out on some of the most intelligent conversations in the podcasting world.  This week on the STP-CAST, it's all about the High-Brow humor...Here is a behind the scenes look....

Listen to this week's STP-CAST on iTUNES, Stitcher, or here: http://media.kisw.com/a/88257576/stp-cast-03-04-14-mono-nick-got-busted-for-downloading-too-many-illegal-shows.htm?

Huge props to Curtis Keat  -- he is an 11th grader at South Kitsap High School in Port Orchard, and recently he came in for a school project to job shadow us.  He followed all of the shows around with a camera and planned on making a video of his experience.  I have to say…this video is AWESOME!  Great job Curtis, the future is bright for you…as for your piano playing…not so bright haha.  It’s a really neat piece on KISW behind the scenes…check it out:

STP's BLOG 03/03/14 "Ellen's Selfie at The Oscars!"
I think the “Selfie” has officially Jumped The Shark, at last night's Oscars, Ellen Degeneres took a selfie that quickly became the most re-Tweeted post on Twitter.  In the pic, it’s her, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Lupita Nyong'o, and Lupita’s brother (best photo bomb on his part)…and it’s already been re=tweeted over 2 million times.  Now that the “selfie” has been embraced by the old celeb’s, I think that means it should be put to rest.
But before it does…I have come up with a couple selfies…
Here is the “I’m leaving my parking garage, and the security guy behind me (unfortunately you can’t see him) is asleep” selfie…
 photo SELFIE1_zpsd8a71d0c.jpg
Here is the “Check out this Pearl Jam Seahawks themed T-Shirt my bud Domi got me” selfie…
 photo SELFIE2_zpsfa25987c.jpg
And here is the BJ Shea Morning Experience Selfie…
 photo selfie3_zps50459816.jpg

So for the past few days we have been dog sitting Ben The Psycho Muppet’s pup, whose name is also Lulu.  His pup is blind so we have been calling them Lil’ Lulu and Blind Lulu.  The two of them have been having a blast together…it’s fun to watch them play….

Here they are playing Tug-Of-War!
