One minute I'm sitting at my desk minding my own business, the next I'm laughing so hard I'm crying. Actual tears. I can't stop watching this.
There's a new documentary out about Journey's search for a new singer. If you don't know the story, the guys from Journey found their current lead singer via YouTube videos of his Filipino cover band. Arnel Pineda was singing Journey songs, and the band liked what they heard.
The movie isn't getting very good reviews, but here's the trailer for you to check out. Hell, I find myself enjoying trailers more than the actual movies these days.
I took my two oldest daughters to see Oz: The Great and Powerful last night. The 4 year old didn't go. She's only likes indie films.
Anyway, I ended up enjoying the movie. The 3D was pretty well done. And my girls loved it.
But, sitting through the almost endless trailers, I caught the new trailer for Monsters University. That's the new prequel to Monsters, Inc. It's an entertaining trailer, and you gotta love Motley Crue's "Kickstart My Heart" about 1:30 into the trailer.
Hideous. Preposterous. I've seen both of those words used to describe these godawful Adidas college basketball uniforms that we're going to see during the men's postseason. I'm not sure when Donnie Baker started designing sports uniforms. You can click on the magnifying glass to make the picture on the right bigger, because you don't want to miss a single horrible detail.
Are you tired of washing your hands and then having to walk all the way over to a towel to dry your hands? Or maybe you're like me and just wipe them on your shirt. Well, wave goodbye to that hassle! The fine folks at Dyson, who came up with different takes on vacuum cleaners, fans and hand dryers, now have this thing that washes and dries your hands. Seriously. It's ridiculous, and yet I really, really want one.
KISS played the ISU Hulman Center on this day in 1977. The crowd of 11,026 still stands as one of the largest to ever see a concert there. I found a great blog post about a different show a few weeks later in the same tour. There's even a scan of a newspaper review and print ad. Go check it out!
News 10's Abby Walton gets an appearance on Conan! She's the first anchor in the montage. God this is funny.
What if Bob Seger's early draft of "Old Time Rock and Roll" was a little...lacking? Gotta love the way Jimmy Fallon sells this.
When I heard that Axl Rose was going to do a live interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, I thought the chances were pretty good that he wouldn't show up, and if he did, he'd be late. But, lo and behold, he showed up on time for the interview. Check out part 1 below.
Man, I love watching fellow broadcasters screw up. I'm sick, I know. But, really, TV news bloopers just make me giggle like an idiot. And rememeber, if your tropical storm lasts for more than four hours, call a doctor.
I think this might have been the first time I've ever done the Terre Haute Labor Day Parade. So, I thought I'd do a video. So glad the rain held off! All that candy lying in the street gets nasty when wet.
Today's the 30th anniversary of the U.S. premiere of the movie "Pink Floyd - The Wall." Here's the original trailer.
So, we're getting ready to move to our new building pretty soon. And I wanted to shoot a video to remember the old building by. Here's a little taste.
Somebody shot this on their phone, so the quality isn't great. Still pretty cool though. Remeber back in the '80s when Run DMC covered "Walk This Way" and Steven Tyler and Joe Perry joined them for the song? It was before Aerosmith's big comeback, so when they appeared in the video, people were like "Oh yeah. Whatever happened to those guys?" So, flash forward to earlier this week. DMC himself makes a surprise guest appearance at an Aerosmith show in New Jersey. Pretty sweet.
I got to hang out for a few hours at last week's Colts Fanfest at Deming Park. I still miss training camp here in Terre Haute, but the Fan Fest was the next best thing. So, take a gander at this little video I shot, in case you weren't there.
Ted Nugent played his first Hulman Center show on this day in 1976. 4211 fans showed up for this stop on what was probably the Free For All Tour. If you think he's wild now, check out this video that I think was shot somewhere in Europe in 1976. To skip right to the craziest part, jump to about 6:15 in the video. But, turn your speakers up good and loud first.
Wow! What an amazing turnout out at our Summer to Ride Finale party at Wabash Valley Harley-Davidson today! Thanks to everybody who came out, especially those who tried to win. And congratulations to Eric Dorn! He was the big winner!
In honor of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer coming out next week, I spent way too long following these instructions so I could turn my $5 bill into a sideways-cap-wearing Abe Lincoln. It did not go well. Can you do better? Post your pic!
