"Liberal Mark from the Nutmeg State....Go!" - Mark Levin



[COMMENT]McIntyre and and Phillips hit this hard this morning.

From NBC LA
The City of LA Downgrades Low-Level Crimes to Infractions. Officials have chosen to enforce 91 non-serious crimes as infractions, rather than misdemeanors.
http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/LA-Downgrades-Low-Level-Crimes-to-Infractions-218433751.html

Police can now write up as infractions without undergoing a review: using a fake ID to buy alcohol; trespassing; urinating or defecating in public; illegal vending; and failing to attend court-ordered traffic school, driving without a license or on a suspended license are treated as infractions instead of misdemeanors.
Other violations that are no longer considered misdemeanor crimes in Los Angeles under the new guidelines include possessing or purchasing alcohol as a minor, drinking in public, gambling, defecating in public, trespassing and not having your dog vaccinated for rabies.

Just more reason to not live, shop or have anything to do with LA. Wait till you see what all this will bring. In the name of saving money, the unintended consequences of this will be enormous. Did the people of LA get to vote on this? No. And your new Mayor is fine with this I'm assuming, I have not heard what he has to say about it.

A caller to McIntyre in the Morning said that we should just drive down the Orange bus line with no license or insurance. And Doug said "and take a dump on someones lawn". The world has gone Ape-S crazy. Their is just no other explanation. And I'm sorry but all the high hopes for this town and with Kevin James in the administration will not mean squat.

The left rules now and for the foreseeable future. This is a product of political correctness and illegal aliens and free stuff from the government and on and on and on.

It will now be possible to see someone selling bacon wrapped hotdogs on the beach next to their tent while a homeless guy takes a dump, congrats LA!

From KABC's Doug McIntyre, a great article from The Daily News.
Doug McIntyre: We're living in Golden Age of Cheating

Monday at 8pm Conway had on Mark Thompson from the Mark and Brian Show on KLOS that ended a year ago. It's a great interview, lots of laughs. It sounds to me like Mark still wants to do a real radio show and not just a podcast with his wife. They live in Charlotte, North Carolina and they have a full studio in their house. I thought the chemistry with Tim and Mark was something I have not heard in a long time. Like I have said for a long time Conway is great with a partner, alone......not soo much. Here is a link to the show:

[PODCASTS]This week on Marc Maron is a blockbuster live from Austin, Texas, with old friends Dom Irrera, Janeane Garofalo, Todd Barry, and Maria Bamford. Plus, Marc and Michael Ian Black renew their hostilities in person. And to bring it all home, Jim Norton takes the panel on a very unexpected journey. And then...oh nothing just Bill Hader from SNL who lives out here in LA now. http://www.wtfpod.com/

Adam Carolla does a show this week where Brian Cranston calls in and talks about Breaking Bad. And if you're like me I cut the cable cord years ago, so I was excited to hear that Season 5 of Breaking Bad has just been put up on Netflix.

[MUSIC]Back in the 80's I discovered Chick Corea, pianist, keyboardist, composer, bandleader. In 1971, Corea founded Return to Forever. This band had a fusion sound and even though it relied on electronic instrumentation it drew more on Brazilian and Spanish-American musical styles than on rock music. I was a huge fan, even though I discovered it in the 80's. Chick is a master and he has done so many things, so many collaborations over the years. Also in the 80's he started a band called The Chick Corea Electric band. It was fusion rock/jazz band with guitars and a kick ass drummer and synthesizers. This is when the digital synthesizers were getting really big. I bought all these albums. I think he did about 6 albums. I saw him live in concert a few times, loved it. Now at 72 years old and after years of work with all kinds of people he's recreating original music for a band, it's called Vigil. Their is a brand new video with Chick explaining what the band is, personally I think it's a reincarnation of Return to Forever. I can not wait to hear this record. Check out this video of Chick and hear some of the new music.



[AUDIOBOOKS]Listening to "On Writing" by Stephen King. I talked about listening to this a month or two ago. Just started listening to the audiobook again. This book is friggen amazing. Hearing King read it himself is just fantastic. I had no idea that he would be talking about what a huge alcoholic he was. He also did pills and coke and all kinds of stuff. He is totally open about all of it. He talks about when he got his first real check. Carrie had gone to paperback and this guy calls and says expect a check for 200K. His wife started crying. Or when he was at the drive in with a buddy and over the loud speaker he heard "Steve King, go home, your wife is in labor". Run and get this book. It's been out since 2000, but man it's worth a tumble.
