Country is Your Genre

Aerosmith's Steven Tyler released his first country music video last week.

The song is called "Love is Your Name."

And while it does have a slight country feel to it, it's still more Steven Tyler than country.

I don't think putting on a pair of boots, standing on the porch of a one-room house and singing in front of a campfire with a big white horse in the background or having an old-fashioned pick-up driving down a dusty road is enough to country this one up.

Maybe I'm wrong. What do you think?

Winter is Coming... to Wimbledon

Kit Harington - aka the possibly departed Jon Snow on HBO's Game of Thrones - was spotted at Wimbledon over the weekend.

And he's wearing his hair long, Jon Snow-style, making those who really don't want the character to be dead speculating that maybe Jon Snow's not as dead as he appeared to be in the final scene of the season finale.

Could it be?

Could Jon Snow we making a return to The Wall to kick some Night's Watch brethren butts?

Or could it be that he just likes wearing his hair long?

I'll guess we'll have to wait and see, right? While we suffer through all sorts of other signs and hints about his return or not...

Miracle at Daytona

The Coke Zero Daytona 400 ended incredibly yesterday morning.

Austin Dillon, driving the number 3 car, went airborne in the final lap of the race, crashing into the catch fence.

Incredibly, no one was seriously hurt, and Austin walked away from it.

Absolutely incredible. The video's a little scary to watch, but when you know everyone's okay, that makes it a little easier.

Impressive & Patriotic Too

Over the 4th of July weekend, the Boston Red Sox hosted the Houston Astros.

But that's not important.

What is important are the guests who dropped in during the singing of the national anthem.

Check out the US Navy's Parachute Team The Leap Frogs gliding into Fenway Park.

Pretty amazing video.

Disney Shown Up by Mother Nature

The folks at Walt Disney World have been known to put on some spectular mid-air light shows.

This weekend, it looks like Mother Nature decided to show Disney who's boss.

Check out this amazing video of a bit of lightning illuminating Cinderella's castle.

Let's see you do that, Walt!

Usually, it's fireworks, but this July 4th weekend, there was quite the spectacular natural light show over Cinderella's Castle at Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

Swimming with a Sea Turtle

The foks at the World Wildlife Fund released a video over the weekend that captures the majesty of sea turtles while driving home a point about saving the environment.

They strapped a GoPro camera onto a sea turtle's back and recorded its swim along the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

It's a very cool video, and if you can find a way to loop it, I'll bet it would make a great relaxation device as well.

To our supporters: Thank you for taking action to help save the Great Barrier Reef! It’s easy to understand why the imminent ban on dumping in the reef is important, but videos like this bring it all to life. Learn more: http://wwf.to/1LHRwqB

Channing Busts a Buncha Moves

Channing Tatum's Magic Mike XXL is doing okay at the box office, partly due to his dancing skills.

But he's not all about the bump-and-grind.

Oh no.

The folks at Vanity Fair challenged him to do seven different dance moves in 30 seconds.

The Running Man, the Twist, the Funky Chicken, the Hula, the Pony and the Robot, capped off with some Voguing.

Check it out, ladies and gents.

This guy's the real deal!

What if there was no more Beer?

What if the last beer you had was this holiday weekend? Or the last cherry you ate (no more cherry pie) ? I had a lot of honey in my tea and on my food over the holiday weekend. These yummies could be gone???

Checking my email this morning, I ran across this story from my friend Shannon in PA. Five foods that my no longer exist because of climate change. I know there is a huge debate about whether there is such a thing as 'Global Warming', but whatever is happening, the climate is changing which has been causing changes in everything. There are 5 foods that may not exist anymore if the pattern continues.. Could you imagine never having Seafood, Maple Syrup, Honey, Beer or even cherries...

Check out why these could be foods of the past in the near future... Do '1 Thing' that is nice for Mama Earth, and maybe keep the foods that we love available to eat. I would rather not know a world without honey! Big Love for that! Click here!

Game of Hot Dogs

Hold the presses! Close the grills!

The King of Hot Dog Eating has been dethroned.

It's official.

Joey Chestnut, who's won Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest every 4th of July for the past eight years, was knocked off Saturday by Matt "The Megaload" Stonie, who managed to down 62 hot dogs - buns and all - in 10 minutes.

The next closest competitor managed only 32 hot dogs and buns in that same timeframe.

I'll bet these guys don't get invited to a lot of cookouts...

Eating 62 Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs and Buns, Matt Stonie takes home the 2015 championship title and belt!
