Life is definitely NOT a highway. Just sayin'.


Ok, now I don't wanna be a whiner here or anything but the image below clearly illustrates a decline in listeners from 12 until 2 p.m. Ignoring the obviously lack of quality of the show, I have no choice but to axe: WHAT GIVES? I put my weak heart, melancholic soul, and feeble body into this show but does anyone care? Hellz no. I know there is no crying in baseball but, mommy the colored lines below are being mean to your son. There...I got that off my chest...Ahem.

Soul Gem...

is up. Don't choke on it, kids.

W. The Movie.

Hmmm, just why THE FUCK would I want to watch a bio-pic about our mentally challenged President? I have lived through the catastrophy...I don't need to know anymore except that it ends on the 20th of January, 2009.

Am I wrong?

Red Sox fans: please rise and remove your caps for the singing of...

"God Bless America?" Um, just watching the Sox game this afternoon and wondering when the memo arrived that we need to remove our hats for a song other than the "Star Spangled Banner?" I have no problem with the national anthem and removing my hat as a sign of respect but not for a song that isn't the national anthem. Just sayin'. Not to be a dick but, I mean, what's next?
