Here's what I did stuck in traffic. I apologize up front for being lyrically challenged. You would think a radio personality wouldn't have that issue, but I do. If I don't know or remember it I tend to make up words. Sometimes I think they are saying a certain word and then find out I was totally off when I look up the lyrics. My honey Ted will catch me at times and ask.. What are you singing? What was the word you just said... Come to find out I've been singing it off key wrong with some songs for years. Oh well, it's all in the enjoyment. Music makes the soul Happy, and Nickelback was making me Happy during this moment. I'm looking forward to their big show in ATX at the ATX 360 Amphitheater on Saturday night!
I'm Ready to Rock!!!
It seems like the roast that would never end, but the Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber finally aired last night.
The folks at ABC News provide a two-minute summary on this morning's "The Skinny."
Check it out for a clean breakdown of the show.
If you believe the clips, it looks like the Biebs had some of the best lines of the night.
Comedy Central announced yesterday the replacement for Jon Stewart on . The Daily Show
Just as everyone expected, the new host is... Trevor Noah?
Um, sorry, who?
Trevor's relatively new to . The Daily Show
Heck, he's relatively new to the US, having arrived at both spots back in December - four months ago - from his native South Africa.
In fact, back then, he made his debut appearance on as a correspondent. The Daily Show
Now, suddenly, he's the new host. As others scramble to find out more about him, why not just sit back and watch that debut..
Justin Bieber took the stage as a back-up singer with Ariana Grande in Miami over the weekend.
His job: help her with "Love Me Harder."
And he couldn't do it. He flubbed the lines, then gave up and started dancing on stage and greeting fans to cover for his failed memory.
He apologized repeatedly to Ariana on stage.. And he did so on Instagram afterwards as well.
Accepted or not, I'll bet it's the last time he's invited to be Ariana's back-up...
Jay Z enlisted some top-level friends to help him announce his new streaming music service, Tidal.
Beyonce was there, of course, and Kanye. But so was Madonna, and Nicki Minaj, and Jason Aldean, and Chris Martin, and more.
Dozens of artists, in the room and on-line, to hear about and lend support to Jay Z's game changing idea.
His plan is to get consumers to pay for music they're used to streaming for free.
You laugh, but it worked for Netflix.
The man could really be on to something big here...
The folks at Disney have been busy turning cartoon characters into live-action characters.
We've had Maleficent, and most recently, Cinderella.
So why not take the same approach with Bambi?
Great idea, and played up perfectly by the folks at Saturday Night Live with a little help - okay, a lot of help - from Dwayne "The Rock" Johnston.
Check it out!
NBC announced plans to produce another live musical right around Thanksgiving.
Two years ago, it was starring Carrie Underwood. Sound of Music
Last year, it was starring Alison Williams. Peter Pan
This year, it's . The Wiz
Right. . The urban twist on the classic The Wiz Wizard of Oz.
Debuted on Broadway in the mid-70s, Turned into a movie in 1978, starring Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow, and Richard Pryor as the Wiz.
Not exactly a classic.
But, it will be the third installment in NBC's franchise - for lack of a better term.
Already, suggestions are being made for the casting.
Beyonce as Glinda. Pharrell as the Tin Man.
Not seeing Kanye mentioned anywhere - but he'll trying to pick up an Emmy for it anyway...
Meanwhile, here's a sampling of the King of Pope as the Scarecrow.
Here's a head-scratcher: some scientists in England have found a way to kill the hospital superbug known as MRSA.
Great news, you say. How did they do it?
Simple. They cooked up a compound from a recipe found in a book about 1000 years old.
The book is called Bald's Leecbook, and the treatment is for styes.
Take cropleek and garlic, of both equal quantities, pound them well together… take wine and bullocks gall, mix with the leek… let it stand nine days in the brass vessel…
The scientists followed the directions and when they tested it, found that it had a 90% success rate in killing the bacteria generally blamed for MRSA.
This could turn into something.

A meteorologist on Global News in Canada took to the airwaves last Thursday to discuss a hate letter. News Hour Plus
Kristi Gordon is pregnant, and got a nastygram about the way she looks on the news.
Calling her "gross," the viewer wrote further: “Your front end looks like the Hindenburg and your rear-end looks like a brick sh—house. We now turn off Global."
Actually, she's gotten a few, and she decided to talk about it on the air with the news co-anchors.
The male anchor didn't think they should give the letter any attention. "Haters gonna hate," he said, "as some rapper may have said."
The female anchor corrected him immediately, which is the funniest put-down I've seen in a long while.
Check out the whole thing... Sparks some interesting discussion.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has a new movie coming out called Maggie.
It's a zombie flick, but more than that.
The advance buzz on it is pretty good, and no one seems happier about it than Arnold himself.
Check out the post to his Facebook page late last week...
