I came across this graphic (below) and I've honestly never heard of Nicki Minaj so I looked it up. Good Lord is this what music has degraded to? I don't mean to pick on her specifically and certainly not rap. I mean "white" pop music has plenty of offenders like Justin Bieber to fill up a phone book sized list of pop culture criminals. Scroll down for the video links.
Ok more snow and the Media has something to do today with all the reporters out on the roads telling us to stay off the roads. Tip of the hat to Steve Bryant for calling this storm 2 days before The Weather Channel.
Speaking of The Weather Channel (TWC) So Direct TV dropped The Weather Channel in a fued over rates I guess. Given TWC's policy of naming winter cold fronts I'd say the viewers aren't missing much. I mean I get up to see the forecast early in the morning and TWC is running some stupid show on freak people with this guy called Magnet Man. He's clearly faking things stuck to his body with slabs of things "stuck" to his chest. I guess the host never heard of Friction? You're the WEATHER CHANNEL and it's GOING TO SNOW ... A LOT! How about you know, actually airing some, I dunno... WEATHER?
New website work proceeding for 2014 with new design this week that links to facebook and twitter. Stay tuned.
UPDATE 1/20/14: Repaired nearly all the audio and video files embeded in blog and audio pages. Articles and catagories revised. This will kill google rank for much of the content but worth it in the long run.
UPDATE 1/12/14: If you can see this the upgrade went well. Some notes for reference. Before moving files from test folder to root ... delete files in cache>gantry before transfer.
Well written and fair article on WPHT's "new" morning man.
Relaxing with an early-afternoon stogie at Mahogany on Walnut, a Center City cigar bar, the genial, chrome-domed 34-year-old chuckled at the memories. Exhaling a plume of milky smoke, he marveled at how off-base all the well-intentioned hand-wringing turned out to be.
"Everybody said, 'The city's so parochial; they'll never welcome you. You're not from here; you'll never understand,' " Stigall (pronounced sti-GOLL) recalled with a smile. "I have not found that to be remotely the case. As long as you're honest with Philadelphians, they're gonna be great."
I came across a note while clearing my desk of a line from President Ronald Reagan ...
It's an iron law of physics that the bigger a government is the less free you are.
Talk Radio Host Dennis Prager echos this with his comment, "The bigger the government the smaller the citizen."
Are we less free now in 2011 now the government has grown by such epic proportions? I don't think so. I'm hoping each upcoming election slows or hopefully reverses the degradation of personal freedom and the grown, and spending, by the federal governement.
I'm joined by literally millions of peace loving people celebrating the death of Bin Laden. I'm also sad that there are many that will mourn his passing at the hands of U.S. special forces. I pity those poor souls.
I note with pleasure that the last thing Bin Laden saw was the muzzle of a gun held by a U.S. soldier fire a round directly at his skull.
On a personal note there were two reasons I kept this domain around as it is. First was being for local talk radio (check & done) and second was 9/11. Most likely we will never be free of terrorism but I'll be changing things and do something different here over the course of the rest of 2011. This really is liberating on so many levels.
