Sean Hannity recently had a segment on his Fox News show called “Sympathy for the Terrorists.” Some think that his stance favors one side over the other, to the point where he shouted loudly at the guest who opposed his viewpoint.
For some reason, Russell Brand recorded himself reacting to the segment, tearing it apart bit by bit.
And at the top of it, he said that Hannity “does look a bit like the Ken doll in the Toy Story 3 film.” Of course, Brand didn’t want to appear “petty” or “trivial.”
Which is good. Otherwise, he might land a show on Fox News, mightn’t he?
Two folks traveling on a highway in the Boston area had the (fill in the blank) scared out of them yesterday morning when an unsecured ax flew off the landscaping track they were riding behind and smashed through their windshield.
Luckily, the ax didn’t go all the way through and the head sort of stuck on the dashboard – directly in front of the passenger’s face.
The truck’s driver was fined $200 for not completely securing his load.
They should also make him pay for new pants for both the motorist and the passenger.
A three-hour whale watch tour off the coast of Massachusetts turned into an overnight ordeal for 157 passengers the other night.
The whale-watching boat failed to spot some lobster traps about 16 miles out, and got caught up in their lines.
It took until morning to free the boat. The Coast Guard had two ships stationed near the marooned vessel, providing food, water and blankets to the passengers, so except for being at sea a lot longer than they expected, everything ended up okay.
But here’s a lesson for you: whenever something’s labelled a “three-hour tour” and it involves the ocean, you might invoke the Gilligan Rule and stay on dry land.
It seems like the folks at the Syfy Channel know what they’re doing when it comes to flying sharks terrorizing a major city.
Last year, Sharknado took a funnel cloud filled with sharks and unleashed it on the West Coast. Last night, Sharknado 2 did just about the same thing on the East Coast – this time plopping a bunch of snapping Jaws-like creatures on the Big Apple.
An hour or so after it aired last night, Hollywood Life wondered if it might be the best worst movie ever - “… so bad, it’s good…” is what they had to say.
Ian Ziering, one of the franchise players, hopes there’s a third installment on the way. “Sharkpocolypse Now!” is what he’s praying for.
The Twitterverse went nuts with commentary all night long at #Sharknado2TheSecondOne.
One of my favorite tweets came from the Ocean Conservancy. Check it out. And wait til next summer, I guess.

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)
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.
