2014 Thingies I tried...

As 2014 comes to an end, it's that time where reflection comes up. Things you enjoyed and regret doing. I'm going to concentrate on the positive, and hope I learned from my mistakes/regrets to be wiser next year. Here are a few Thingies I tried during the year, and in some cases I enjoyed, and others once was enough.

I flew Thanks to iFly ATX Booker was my flying buddy! Think we're ready for Skydiving in 2015???



If you told me I would purposely have a bucket of ice water dumped on me in 2013, I would have said 'No Way!'. But I did! I jumped on board the 'Ice Bucket Challenge' to help rasie money and awareness for ALSA.org #IceBucketChallenge with donations as did TONS of other folks including MANY celebrities. Here's a mix of 50 Celebrity Best Challenges!



I tried Green Goo w/ Jay Styles and decided I liked this much better!




These are just a few of the many things I experience during 2014. #ThankYouAustin for another Fabulous Fun Year w/ Mix 94.7! I look forward to the fun we'll have in 2015! HR

Legit, or Stunt?

Here's a chance for you to be the judge.

The scenario:
  • The Oxygen Network was in Houston recently auditioning for its show, Bad Girls Club.
  • While women waited in line to be seen, another woman was in a conversation with a police officer who had just put a traffic boot on the driver-side rear tire of her new BMW X5.
  • It's not really clear why the boot was put in place, or if the woman was there auditioning.
  • What is clear is that she didn't want to be booted.
  • So she drove off with the boot in place.
  • Clearly, it's not the proper size boot for that car, as the wheel is able to rotate almost freely.
  • And as she drove off to the cheers of the folks in line, the boot actually fell off.
Watch the video - the wind sounds on it can't be avoided.

Then weigh in. What do you think?

Legitimate circumstances, or a stunt staged by the producers of the show so they've got something to show for their time in Houston?

Happy Holidays: All I Want for Christmas Done Right

After all the buzz about Mariah Carey's troubles with singing "All I Want for Christmas" at the Rockerfeller Center Tree Lighting Ceremony, here's a chance to see and hear it done right.

The group is Out of the Blue - the a cappella singers from Oxford University in England.

And, not only is it a good arrangement, the group is selling the single to raise money for the Helen & Douglas House, which provides hospice care for children in the United Kingdom.

And the Newest Kardashian is...

Kourtney Kardashian gave birth to her third child, again sired by her boyfriend Scott Disick.

That happened last week, on December 14, on her firstborn son's 5th birthday.

Over the weekend, the happy couple announced the baby boy's name.

Joining brother Mason and sister Penelope is...

Well, read the Instagram post. I mean, that's how we ALL keep up with the Kardashians, isn't it?
 
 

Madly in love with my little Reign Aston Disick.

Fare Thee Well, Colbert! See You in May!

On Friday night, Stephen Colbert was one of two late night comics to say farewell to the shows and audiences who'd grown to love them.

(The other was Craig Ferguson on CBS's Late Late Show. More on him tomorrow.)

But first, Colbert wrapped up The Colbert Report on Comedy Central in an interesting way.

By turning it into a musical, sort of, with an amazing hodgepodge of singers. Starting with Jon Stewart from CC's The Daily Show, the seemingly endless list of guests included Big Bird and Cookie Monster from Sesame Street, former secretary of state Henry Kissinger, former president Bill Clinton, an astronaut from the International Space Station, Barry Manilow (who was misidentified initially by another reporter as Rod Stewart) and more. Dozens, maybe even hundreds of folks, all singing "We'll Meet Again."

Check it out - and be sure to keep watching when it appears to be over.

Stephen will be back in May, when he jumps into David Letterman's seat on CBS's Late Show.

Good to Have Support on the Home Front

Gisele Bunchen - aka Mrs. Tom Brady - posted another cute picture to Instagram yesterday, moments after her husband's team clinched a day off in the first-round of the NFL playoffs by beating the New York Jets.

It wasn't a pretty victory, or an easy one either, with the Patriots limping out of the Meadowlands with a 17-16 win.

Still, it was a win, and good enough for Gisele to hoist her daughter to her shoulder and post a picture of it to Instagram.

File this one under #godaddy!

And be sure to check out the look on the face of the dog - almost like he's saying, "Again?"
 
 

Yeeeeaaaaahh! #godaddy #gopats ????????

Cold Open, Cold Shoulder

If this weekend's cold open of Saturday Night Live is any indication, there could be some life left in the old dog afterwards.

It started with a spoof of Sam Smith, the automaton with the fantastic voice, promoting his new special, A Very Somber Christmas.

Suddenly, the "broadcast" was hijacked by none other than Doctor Evil - that would be one of Mike Myers' characters from the Austin Powers films.

Doctor Evil took issue with North Korea and Sony Pictures for giving "evil organizations a bad name."

Funny stuff - and biting satire as well.

Happy Holidays: Sheriff Santa

There's a guy in Missouri who gives away about $100,000 a year in $100 bills to random strangers.

This holiday season, he got a little bit of help - from the Jackson County Sheriff's Department in Kansas City.

The officers were handed a small pile of Benjamin Franklins and sent out on the street to help those who needed help.

What a terrific, feel-good story...

Wrapping Up a Holiday Tradition

Darlene Love came to fame with the 1960s classic, "He's a Rebel."

But for close the three decades now, she's earned even more fame from her annual appearance on David Letterman's last show before Christmas to sing "Christmas" - aka "Baby Please Come Home."

She'll sing it one last time tonight, on Letterman's final show-before-Christmas. This time next year, Stephen Colbert will be sitting in Letterman's seat.

To get everyone in the mood, the folks at CBS put together a compilation of Darlene's appearances, blending them all together in one pretty spectacular rendition.

Enjoy - and be sure to set your DVR for tonight's performance...
