The Power to Crash a Website, Matthew's Bombs
I got up today and turned on Rush. He was talking about his favorite specialty meat company, Allen Brothers. I went to the website and it had crashed. I think a few people listen to Rush. This is an amazing website. Although very expensive. 8 very nice steaks for $180. A little steep for me. http://www.allenbrothers.com/
Michael Medved was talking about this ridiculous story in Ohio where private donors are paying kids $25 a week to go to school if they behave. Michael was all in favor of this and called it "Beautiful". It's frigging stupid. Paying kids to come to school? Really? Shouldn't they be going to school and behaving themselves as part of their own personal responsibility? That's like if I don't go 90 on the freeway for a month, I should demand $100. Please! Here is the story: http://www.wmtw.com/Ohio-Students-Getting-Paid-To-Go-To-School/-/8792672/9569256/-/24g701/-/index.html
Today I listened to Adam Carolla's interview with Time Magazine writer Joel Stein. Joel actually wrote something about the Toto Memorial that I had a part in last year. You can find the article he wrote on Toto's facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Toto-Canine-Movie-Star-Memorial-Marker/122059101185330
And in the past few days late at night I listened to Adam interview Warren Littlefield. He was a very big deal at NBC for years. Really interesting interview. Here is info from Wikipedia:
A protégé of Brandon Tartikoff, Littlefield developed Cheers, The Cosby Show, and The Golden Girls as senior and executive vice president of NBC Entertainment under Tartikoff. During his time as president of NBC, Littlefield created hit shows for the network throughout the 1990s such as Seinfeld, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Wings, Blossom, Law & Order, Mad About You, Sisters, Frasier, Friends, ER, Homicide: Life on the Street, Caroline in the City, NewsRadio, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Suddenly Susan, Just Shoot Me!, Will & Grace and The West Wing.
Larry Elder did a very funny segment where he played a phone call with Chris Mathews talking about his book from a year ago or so. It was a yelling match. Then Larry played the audio from Celebrity Jeopardy where Chris Matthews loses badly and can't answer almost any of the questions correctly. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/cutline/chris-matthews-bombs-jeopardy-141427472.html
Big Shout Out to a facebook friend Adam for giving me his list of podcasts he listens to regularly. I have about 13 shows to go check out. Love when that happens.
