"Cro" has the distinction of being at KFI longer than anybody else with the exception of the legendary Mike Nolan... not sure if that should be a point of pride, but there you go. Michael started as a board operator for tons of shows, including the L.A. Raiders(yes, they were on KFI), Marilyn Kagan and Phil Hendrie, where he ended up writing for many of Phil's "guests". Michael also performed and co-wrote many of the skits and parody songs played during the Bill Handel Morning Show. He was eventually thrown into the newsroom as an anchor, where he works the much envied weekend shift. His versatility (lack of social life) allows him to fill virtually any time slot on the station. That's why you might hear him any time of the day or night... or weekend... or overnight... or Christmas Day... or New Years Eve. You get the picture.

Man, this must be a crushing blow to her self esteem. If you already need this sort of encouragement so much that you tattoo it onto your torso, imagine the backlash when that Hallmark junk is spelled wrong.

The song of the summer last year was Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe". An argument could be made for "Gangnam Style" but that came more towards the end of the summer. Regardless, I called it last year and I'm calling Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" as the early fave for this year's biggest summer hit. Daft Punk's latest album(CD) release is a pretty damn good homage to 70's era funk and overall groovy music. This is not Daft Punk's version, but a cover done by George Barnett. I don't know this guy and I've never heard of this guy, but I hope this is a springboard to bigger stuff for him. I love how he's really feelin what he's doing. This reminds me of a recent speech I saw Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters give about him learning how to multi-track as a kid growing up in Springfield, Virginia. BTW, as an aside, Dave and I are the same age and I spent a pretty good portion of my early years in Springfield with my Dad as he was in a band of his own...so Dave and I are pretty connected...unless we're not.
Anyway, enjoy this infectious, awesome version of an already awesome song!
I honestly didn't see that end comin...I certainly hope this person is ok...but my a-hole sense of humor, yes, did force me to laugh
This poor, poor girl...then again they may be a perfect match, what with their matching indigestion and all. I'm betting, tho, that he didn't call back considering SOMEONE had to post this online.
In case you ever wondered what it would look like to be eaten by a grizzly bear, there's this...
ya know, a bears mouth is really disgusting...it needs a tic tac.
Pardon the indulgence...
...just got off the phone on this Mother's Day and felt compelled.
I'll admit there've been some Mother's days that have gone by that don't resonate so much with me. Then there are some, like today, I am thankful for because I appreciate it's meaning just a bit more.
With the hours I work at KFI, I am fortunate to do a LOT of volunteer time at my daughters school. She's in 6th grade this year, so that will end very quickly, but it's been invaluable to me and Sydney. With all the work I do there, I've seen more than my fair share of Mom's doing their thing as Mom's do...raising the next great generation.
Between school stuff and KFI, I'm around many people who care very deeply about what it means to be a great parent, in particular, great Mom's.
At the age of 7, I was separated from my Mother geographically. It sucked as you can imagine it would. The amount of times I've been with her since are a tragic and constant reminder of why you should appreciate any time you have with loved ones.
My mother isn't perfect, duh...who's mother is? Circumstance's sometimes force people to make tough decisions and time has only confirmed how tough those decisions are. BUT, I've never questioned that the tough decisions were made with the pure heart only a parent... only a mother, can have.
So, on this day where I am grateful to appreciate mine, I thank all the Mom's I've known, from Jennifer, Lisa Ann, Heidi, Muna, Christa, Amy, Alissa, Fadia, Karla, Kimberly, the other's too many to mention in this little blog of mine...
I love you, Mom
I was born in Washington D.C. and after spending some time growing up in Miami and Kansas(huh?) I moved back to the DC area for the formative years. Now, anybody that's been in the DC, Maryland, Virginia areas knows about the cicada thing.
Millions, possibly BILLIONS of cicadas literally rise up from the ground to mate and they're EVERYWHERE. It kinda starts around North Carolina and moves northward.
They don't bite and they don't sting, but that does not negate the gross factor because they are EVERYWHERE!
It happens every 17 years, which means this years "Swarmageddon" will be the first for the little bastards of the 21st Century. And the sound is loud and horrible, exactly what you'd think for a huge swarm. When people are not stepping on them(horrible crunching sound and feel) or cleaning them off their cars, many try to make the month and a half long event a fun time.
Some use them as fashion...
...some use them as food...
...I use them as one of the reasons I'm glad I don't live there anymore.
CAUTION-BAD LANGUAGE AHEAD!!(Seems like I type that an awful lot)
Many people have heard this essay on the F-word. I remember this guy being known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. Apparently he went by Osho for about a year before his death in 1990. Regardless, he gave his rendition of this speech about 30 years ago when he was going by the Bhagwan name.
This is just one of a few videos of this lady that have apparently gone "viral"...and on a side note, I'm getting a bit tired of that word, kinda like "epic."
Anyway, most of us have come across the phrase "Dance like no one is watching." I like that concept and love this application!
I suspect "Dancing Queen" was NOT the song she was dancing to, but I don't care. I was genuinely sad when the bus pulled away at the end.
...and I seriously want to give a high five to anyone I see with the nards to live life like this.
