Another reason to buy more magazines!

Check this tutorial out. I am going to go to Freds and buy some brackets ASAP.

YouTube your name!

So, I thought, why not? Type it in, "Rosey Robards." Beside the typical Jason Robards the actor clips and some cheesy book trailers from romance novelist Karen Robards, this is what came back. I HOPE that I am related to these people. Most Robards are. Poor grandma in the back. I wonder how she would respond if she found out just what it means to superman that hoe. Good gracious!

My job is so entertaining...

You guys are going to love this!

Our radio show is this weekend, Saturday at 4 p.m. on KNBA 90.3 FM. And its crunch time. The kids are having me listen to all their audio and help edit up some stories. This month they have come back with some pretty crazy stuff. Here are a couple clips that may or may not make the cut for the show.

"Cat is done" is a clip from an mixed martial arts fighter who stopped by the studio for an interview and "Favorite cat" is ATMI's Andrew Aquino interviewing a kid at school. The cat theme is disturbing.

Definition of the week: Kindred Spirits
1. Kindred Spirits

Kindred Spirits are two people that make a special connection by sharing a bond that has joined them by the means of an experience that has drawn them together on a higher level of consciousness. This connection can be from the same experience at the same time or two separate experiences similar in nature.

If two people were in a dramatic situation and had to depend on each other in order to get out of the situation or one having to help rescue the other, they would become bonded as kindred spirits...

Classic example: Kim Cattrall and Kurt Russell both have names that start with "K" and end in two "L"s. Coincidence? I think not.

Definition of the week: Man Crush

I must clear something up. A certain friend of mine has misused this term, not going to name names, (ehem, Trina) and I would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight.
Man Crush : When a straight man has a "crush" on another man, not sexual but kind of idolizing him.

Many straight men end up having man crushes on Johnny Depp (I don't blame them).

Classic example: Barry Piser has a man crush on Gary Cohn, a newspaper reporter who has mad Pulitzer-Prize-winner-skills and the ability to talk sports. And I must mention the crush is/was mutual.

Barry Piser

Gary Cohn

Important note: This, in fact, means that females do not have man crushes.

Yah Moms!

In honor of Mother's day, yesterday, I would like to share a little interview I found on Story Corps, a non-profit that has gathered more than 17,000 recorded conversations across the country. You can listen to all kinds of conversations between people on their Web site.

This one features a boy named Rahsheed, who interviews his mom about her biggest lessons learned and why she isn't still married.

Audio survey

So, I had to test out the USB mic I got in the mail for work. So I did one of those silly internet surveys audio style. Check it out!

The last question is something like,
"When was the last time you had a shot?"
Kind of a weird last question. Everyone should post their answer to that question in the comments on this blog!

Final entry on Cory Branan (for a while)

Photo by Brian Adams

Cory Branan played some fun shows here in Anchorage last weekend. He fit in around here perfectly. We are all missing him already. Here is a final farewell to Cory with a video Marty Jones shot at the Snow Goose last Saturday night.

In the words of Evan Phillips, "Thanks (Cory) for being a breath of fresh air." :P

Erik Braund on Conan...

OK, so we all know Anchorage's Erik Braund of Jeb and Sleep Machine bears a striking resemblance to late night talk show host Conan O'Brien but seeing them together...CRAZY!


Watch the break dancing scene with Jason Lee. Who knew Conan would be brushing Erik Braund's shoulders off? Ridiculous.

Les petits enfants aiment la musique!

Singing and dancing babies seem to be all the rage lately. I keep coming across these cute videos. You probably saw the "Hey Jude" one on MySpace, Tom posted it. But if you haven't it is a must see. And the Menomena one is so sweet.

Moose hunting!


Cory Branan and his first moose sighting in Anchorage. We went out yesterday and found this one out past the airport.
