Would this tattoo prevent him from getting a Job?

After a recent Sean Says email about whether getting a tattoo on your neck could hurt your chances of getting you a job, comes this story….and no he doesn’t need to worry about getting a job.  Well, maybe if he wants to work in the kitchen in the clink. 24-year-old convicted felon Michael Vines crashed…Read more »

There’s a cool new cover floating around online today of ‘Rosanna,’ the 1983 Record of the year Grammy winner for Toto by Weezer!  It’s a cool version of the song, but even cooler is the story behind the cover.  A fan has been trolling Weezer to cover Toto’s most well known song, ‘Africa,’ going as…Read more »

Is this the Mugshot of the Decade?

Is this the Mugshot of the Decade?

I guess you have to give it to this guy for his commitment. 30-year-old Michael Bello from Lancaster, Pennsylvania got drunk early on St. Patrick’s Day and said ‘you know what?  I can drive!’ But the cops caught him.  It wasn’t too hard either.  I mean, when you see someone leaning out their car window…Read more »

MY TOP 5: Foo Fighters Songs

MY TOP 5: Foo Fighters Songs

I may have got a little too carried away with this Top 5.  I dove deeper and deeper down the Foo Fighters rabbit hole, but hey, there are worse places to get lost on the interweb, am I right?  I’ve grown up with the Foo Fighters, seen them live in smaller venues (Riviera and Aragon…Read more »

Mourning a Taco Bell’s Passing

A Taco Bell burned down in Montgomery, Alabama last week, and as a joke, some people started a social media page to have a Candle lit vigil for the deceased restaurant.  And of course…people came.  About 100 of them, and so did the news!  Check out this report with the worst puns of all time! …Read more »

TRUMPY BEAR?  Is This Thing Real?

TRUMPY BEAR? Is This Thing Real?

A friend of mine stumbled across this over the weekend and I’ve been talking and thinking about it ever since!  From all the research I’ve done, this infomercial for a Trumpy Bear doll is REAL!  Not only that, but they’re selling, and people are RESELLING them on Ebay for at least double the cost!  …Read more »

Hey Hey!  I’m finally getting around to my seconds Top 5 songs post, and apparently I’m either extremely foolish, or extremely ambitious to try and and pick 5 songs from a band that has been around for over 50 years and has released 28 albums.  I’ll preface this by by saying, I was a late…Read more »

Best Message to Santa Ever!

Best Message to Santa Ever!

Turns out, we’re not the only place that hasn’t really seen any snow yet (not that I’m complaining).  Even parts of Canada haven’t seen much of the white stuff, eh?  Well they finally got some in Newfoundland, and a 9 year-old girl had a great idea of what to do with the snow…leave a message…Read more »

MY TOP 5:  Green Day Songs

MY TOP 5: Green Day Songs

One of my favorite aspects of my job is the chance to turn people on to new music.  Now I know what you’re thinking…’Shap, you don’t play new music!’  That (for the most part) is true!  But if I can tell you a story, and anecdote, a fact about a song or artist that I’ve accrued in…Read more »
