The Generation Gap?!?

I was getting a haircut recently and my barber was talking about how excited he was to see New Edition (group was performing in the area). His son (a sophomore in college) remarked, "Dad, you always wanna see those old school performers." His statement caught my attention because I didn't consider New Edition to be old school. So I said, "If New Edition is old school, then what are the performers I consider to be old school?"

Him: "Like whom?" ( whom? told you he was in college)

Me: "Well, The Whispers, Stephanie Mills, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin,
Maze, Patti Labelle, Earth, Wind & Fire, Charlie Wilson, just to name a few."

Him: "Oh, they're classics."

Me: "Alright now, MY music is classic music."

Him: "Yeah, that's a LOT older than old school."

Me: "Why, you little……."

Last week, while doing a remote broadcast, I registered people to win two tickets to the 957 RnB Soul Music Fest, Nov 1st, at the Hampton Coliseum. I was informing them that it would feature performances from The Whispers, Stephanie Mills, Mint Condition….before I could finish, I noticed this blank look on some of their faces (the young people). So I asked, "you've heard of The Whispers right?"

Young uns: No

Me: How about Stephanie Mills?

Young uns: Ummmmmm, nope.

Me: Mint Condition?

1 Young un: I think my Momma might know 'em.

Me: How old are y'all?

Young uns: 20, 19, 21, 23.

Me: Well, have y'all ever heard of Chrisette Michelle?

Young uns: A resounding and unified….. "YES!"

Now, they're all excited and ready to register to win the tickets. Then a young woman said to me, "Have you ever heard of Chief Keef?

Me: Ain't that the name of the Washington DC football team mascot?

Her: "Nope, how bout Shaggy?"

Me: "Fo'sho, he works at our sister station ….. Z104.

Her: "What? No sir. (so polite … I loved it) You ever heard of Nappy Roots?"

Me: "Aw your hair doesn't look that bad, just a little touch up will do."

Her: (with a deep sigh) "You're hilarious. Maybe you've heard of 50 cent?"

Me: "Word, I'm hip to the hop you don't stop. I know all about fiddy cent, 2 Chainz, Fat Boys, Kool Mo Dee, Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, MC Lyte, Rapper's Delight….. how it go….hotel, motel, holiday inn…

(It was about that time, I noticed that blank look on her face again)

And They SURVIVED!

Two women were trespassing on a railroad bridge in Indiana a couple of weeks ago when a freight train caught up with them.

The video from the Indiana Rail Road Company was released yesterday, and it’s horrifying.

You can hear the freight train whistling frantically as the women scramble in front of it to get off the bridge and the tracks.

Just as one woman looks like she’ll be able to jump to safety, the other one falls down right in front of the train, and her friend goes to help her. That’s when they disappear from view.

Bottom line: both women walked away from the incident. Okay, more like they ran away from it, and drove off in a nearby vehicle.
The local sheriff has identified them, and is now tracking them down, treating the incident as a crime.

After getting run over by a freight train, I can’t imagine that handcuffs are really going to scare these women…

Get Ready to Cringe!

This happened two weeks ago, but it’s really gotten some traction on the internet in the past few days.

A young girl at the Lava Hot Springs water park in Idaho was on a high-dive platform when she was distracted by another diver rushing past her.

She panicked – it appears – and tried to stop her own dive.

Momentum and gravity took over, and she went off her platform and bounced off the platform below before plunging to the water.

Amazingly, she just hurt her finger – but I’ll bet it’s a long time before she attempts another high dive.

Peyton Planning to Dance with the Stars?

At the Denver Broncos practice facility yesterday, quarterback Peyton Manning got hit with a bad case of happy feet.

Someone blasted the unofficial fight song of his alma mater, the University of Tennesse. It’s a country tune called “Rocky Top,” and Peyton just had to bust a move.

Check out wide receiver Wes Welker (#83) in the video, sort of spinning like he just got off a roundabout at a playground.

Zac Efron's Social Lubricant

Zac Efron is the first celebrity to appear on NBC’s new reality show, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, and for some reason, took that as the opportunity to open up about his struggles with alcohol and drugs.

It’s a two-day survival show, throwing the celebrity into the wilds to see how he or she can handle it. Bear is along for the trip, plus a camera crew.

And during the filming, Zac confessed to Bear that the whole Hollywood thing overwhelmed him.
He said the pressure of being out there with the press and the people had him reaching for a social lubricant.

Whatever it was, he didn’t name it, but you can bet that will be the new buzz word around Tinsel Town.

I fully expect a bar along Sunset to change its name to Social Lubricant before the week is out. You watch.

Warning! This is a Warning!

Someone posted a video that captures the sounds of Chicago’s tornado sirens to Facebook the other day.

You have to give it a listen.

Imagine waking up to something like that.

I wouldn’t know if it was a tornado or whales in heat.

Interesting, if nothing else…

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, 1 Naked Dude

A guy in Texas was trying to save some money on the cost of selling his house.

So he took his own pictures of the interior of his house to post online.

He didn’t know when he posted it, but one of the bathroom pictures showed him in the mirror, standing in the corner, naked, while taking the picture.

The flash blurred out his face, but everything else was there on display.

Ironically, the website he was posting to was hotpads.com.

Maybe he knew he was in the picture after all, but was confused about what site he was posting to…

Say It Ain't So, Spidey!

When you visit Times Square in New York, chances are good you’re going to run into a street performer in a costume you recognize.

Well, sort of. These aren’t Disneyworld quality outfits – these are the worn-by-many outfits you’d find at the local costume shop around Halloween.

If you’re not too creeped out, you just might want to take a picture with that character. After all, how many times will you be able to snap a picture with a superhero on the sidewalk of the Big Apple, right?

So, on Sunday, one such picture opportunity got out of hand. A woman snapped a shot with Spiderman and offered a dollar for his efforts. Spidey refused the dollar, demanding a larger bill.

A nearby cop overheard the conversation, and reminded Spidey that he could accept donations, but couldn’t ask for money. And that’s when Spidey hit the cop square in the face – with his fist, not some webbing fluid.

Spidey was carted off and charged with a variety of charges.

Wouldn’t it be great if some guy dressed as The Hulk showed up to pay his bail?
