Media Frenzy Again, Match.com, Another Blond White Female Missing in Aruba

August 12th, 2011 No comments

One more time, the media, especially the morning shows on network television, have their BREAKING NEWS story.  Another blond, white woman is missing in Aruba and once again the media is going ape you know what over this case of a blond dimwit who met her fate after meeting a scumbag on Match.com.  And now this story will do nothing more than dredge up the Natalee Holloway case which took place in the same resort destination.

So let me start with this first.  Let’s start with Match.com so that I can officially warn women about any dating site, but we will start with Match.com.

I was on Match.com.  I met a lot of women on Match.com.  A lot.  Southern California is a great place to meet women, on Match.com.  I recommend it to everybody.

Now let’s talk about some of the wackos I’ve met on Match.com.  And anyone that has been on Match.com for any length of time, like 24 hours, will have the same stories I have from the wackos on Match.com.  But I still recommend it.  The last woman I met when I was on Match.com, well I asked that famous question.

“Have you ever been arrested?”

Usually I get a quick “no” but this time I got a story.  About her meth binge which led to a high speed car chase down the Pacific Coast Highway near Laguna Niguel, California with her in the driver’s seat followed by several responding vehicles with flashing red lights attached to the roofs, subsequently flipping her two seater over a bridge, into the water where my date sitting in front of me had to swim to shore to then be arrested, facing several Class A felonies.

“Check please!,” I say immediately.

“What about dessert?,” she says.

“Oh you can stop and pick up Twinkies at a 7-11,” I say summoning the server.

What am I saying?  I’m gonna be the for real Negro here.  And say to all women.  FOR THE LAST TIME, FOR THE VERY LAST TIME, DO A BACKGROUND CHECK ON ANYBODY YOU MEET ONLINE!!!!

How’s that?

If you follow my guide here and I’m going to be a real asshole about the following statement, you won’t end up missing in a body of water or beat the hell up on the floor of your apartment by your date from Match.com.  In addition if you follow my guide here, one more time, I will not have to endure another ongoing story about a missing, blond white woman in Aruba.

You got my drift here?

People need to begin to learn one word.  Judgment.  Judgment.  Every bottom feeding, scum sucking, low-level piece of crap is on the Internet.  And if you’re stupid enough not to do a background check on them, especially from a dating site, which will take you 5 minutes and under $5, then your next match could be you matching the bottom of the ocean somewhere around Aruba.

So now I gotta watch this crap on TV again for the next year.  Damn!!!!

‘ICarly’s Miranda Cosgrove Breaks Ankle in Tour Bus Crash

August 11th, 2011 No comments

Well the tour is over but Miranda Cosgrove is telling some that her tour bus driver may have saved her life after an accident that put a cast on her ankle.  The ICarly star was on her tour bus in the midst of her Dancing Crazy Summer Tour when the vehicle crashed in to an overturned tractor trailer.

Five other persons were on her tour bus at the time of the accident.  The bus was headed to Kettering, Ohio and for a show last night and Wichita, Kansas for a Friday event and of course those concerts have been canceled.  As well as the rest of her tour this summer.

The bus was traveling at night when it came upon the overturned tractor trailer and according to a report by TMZ.com the bus driver drove head on to the truck rather than swerve to avoid the mishap in front of him.  That move apparently is why she’s telling others that her tour bus driver saved her life.

Along with the broken right ankle, Miranda also broke her right baby toe.  Her mom, who was also on the bus, was banged up a bit as well during the accident.

August 11th, 2011 No comments

Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora aren’t messing around.  They obviously are pretty clear headed when it comes to their very attractive 13 year old daughter as they said to Ava Sambora “honey step in front of that camera.”  Yes Ava Sambora is stepping past the runway to get her first movie gig in the Judd Apatow spinoff from his Knocked Up creation.

Ava Sambora will have a small role in the as Variety is calling it a cameo shot with Apatow’s daughter Maude.  She’ll play the sister of Judd’s daughter’s character according to the publication.

Ava Sambora already as mentioned did her first modeling gig promoting Richie Sambora’s White Trash Beautiful clothing line when she was only 12 years old.

Of course Heather Locklear has been all over television during her career appearing in Melrose Place and T.J. Hooker, although we could have mentioned a bigger TV show like Dynasty but when would we ever mention T.J. Hooker in any conversation?

Stay Tuned, The Political Chaos Begins as Mitt Romney Gets Heckled (Video)

August 11th, 2011 No comments

I think most politicians are stand up comedians.  Meaning that whatever comes out of their mouths is a joke.  I voted for this current President and except for health care I’m not sure what else I can point to that he’s done.  But he’s not alone.  We have the followers of Jesus in Rick Perry, then there’s the homophobic crazy woman Michele Bachmann, the guy that I listen to when I need to fall asleep in Tim Pawlenty and the pizza guy Herman Cain who reminds me of that guy that ran for Governor in New York, you remember “the rent is too damn high” candidate.

Then there’s Mitt Romney.  Trying to hold on to anything that would make him President.  But he’s about ready to get his ass kicked out of the top position by the second coming of Jesus and the homophobic Congresswoman.

So why do I have a problem with Barack Obama?  After listening to these whacks Barry doesn’t sound so bad does he.

But Mitt Romney just got whacked himself in Iowa.  He’s not going to raise taxes and keep sending jobs overseas yet still thinks he can be President.  He keeps running every four years and never gets the nomination.  What the hell’s wrong with that guy?

Anyway now Republicans are getting beat up on the trail because of their direction for the country.  Just watch this appearance by Mitt Romney.  Doesn’t turn out well but as I always say to Democrats and Republicans, welcome to the party pal!

Washington DC Weatherman Has One of Those Days (Video)

August 11th, 2011 No comments

When I was on the air back in my radio days, there was always a time when nothing worked right.  You’d push a button first thing in the morning to play a song and some numb-nuts over-night board operator didn’t cue up the song at the beginning so all you had was the end of the song.

Embarrassing.

Or maybe you turned on the mike and said the wrong thing.  Or maybe you did like I did in my real early days in radio at 16 QIQ Quick radio in Chester one night.  I did a bad intro and thought I turned off the mike.  After that bad intro I screamed the “f” word, of course that word going live to the 8 people who listened to that radio station.

Embarrassing.

Oh, yeah and fired!

Or the time when they changed my pass code at one radio station when I couldn’t get back in to the studio office because the program director never told me.

Embarrassing.

Once again, fired.

But in today’s world where computers run the show there’s no choice but for more embarrassing moments.  At least mine were man made by the man known as me.

Check out this video of an NBC4 weatherman’s forecast that goes so terribly wrong.  But he does a great job with it so enjoy.

‘Tia & Tamera’ Blows Up Style Network, Most Watched Show Ever

August 10th, 2011 No comments

Well now there’s something to really cheer about over at Style Network.  Now under the watchful eye of NBC you can’t beat the timing of last night’s big audience delivery for the network as the premiere of Tia & Tamera just blew up Style Network.

The premiere of the new reality show brought in the biggest number of viewers ever in Style Network’s history.  The sister duo has a lot going on that really brought in a large number of female viewers which is really the core target for Style Network.

This ain’t Spike TV.

Tia is going through her first pregnancy (chick flick type stuff) and Tamera is working on her upcoming wedding (more chick flick type stuff) and all of the dressing that goes along with planning that event.

Tia and Tamera airs Monday at 9PM.

‘Lopez Tonight’ Headed to ‘Lopez Last Night’ Thursday

August 10th, 2011 No comments

Well George Lopez and his career as a late night talk host is quickly coming to an abrupt end and you’re looking at an end in the next 48 hours.  And we’re not talking about the 48 Hours TV show on CBS.  We’re talking about TBS dumping comedian George Lopez’s 2 year running Lopez Tonight.

George Lopez and Taylor Swift

Thursday will be the final episode of the late night chat and entertainment show according to a network spokesperson.  And Conan O’Brien, whose program replaced the Lopez Tonight time-slot when the redhead arrived to TBS may not be far behind.

If you remember Conan O’Brien bounce George Lopez’s show back an hour to get Conan in the 11PM slot.  Well that move put Lopez Tonight on the future canceled bin status as the expected increase in viewers for O’Brien’s show did not happen therefore not giving Lopez a lead in audience.

And that’s where we say, ‘that’s all folks” to George Lopez.

Just an observation but is there anything left for late night television on cable?  Is there an audience out there to justify the costs of producing these shows?  Right now that answer seems to be “no.”

The End of Pay Television? Cable and Satellite Subscriptions Historic Drop

August 10th, 2011 No comments

If this isn’t a sign of things to come there may not be any more direct a message to the television industry.  And if this trend continues there is a big problem for the future of cable and satellite TV.

This economy is so bad that people are dropping subscriptions to pay television at record levels.  Both cable and satellite lost 580,000 users during Q2 of this year.  And those users say the cost of these services is too high.  Plus the increase usage of other services like Netflix and Hulu,  then throw in AT&T along with Verizon both getting into the content providing business and you have an industry that in a serious arena of decline.

And the impact is even more clear in neighborhoods with lower income users.  “The economic impact on our customers in lower income neighborhoods is more pronounced,” says Tom Rutledge CEO of  Cablevision Systems.  And the future is not bleak for users in those area as Rutledge sees “less gross adds in lower income areas,” in a chat with Bloomberg News.

Dish Network is going in a different direction with their future marketing efforts.  They’re ready to forget the low-end user and focus on people who can afford their service and not turn it off.
