Filling in for Rob Lucas

Good Morning! Its 7:25 am and I have been up 3 hours. I have been doing the morning show off and on for 4 weeks. Rob Lucas has had a terrible time with his voice. I actually think it was a combination of a virus and overuse. Either way. He is on strict voice rest. I am trying to hold down the fort for him. I can't figure out what time to go to bed. Should I nap in the afternoon? How long should I nap? Should i eat first? Oh and when you talk really fast to me, I'm tired and need a second to process it. Pathetic I know. But here is my blog to say how much I appreciate waking up to Rob Lucas on my radio. He tells me what I need to know to start my day. When I get to the station at 4:45am, i realize I am the one who has that responsibility for you. Heres to the morning warriors. Thank you

Rob Lucas No Voice Social Media Tour - Short & Sweet Update 2

Not a lot to report, other than I sound kind of close to what I do after screaming all day at a Bills game. Which is a huge improvement over where I was, but not consistently good enough to be on the radio. But at least I don't have to work at speaking anymore, words come out easily, but not with the fullness of voice I need. See the rollercoaster ride that this is? With every positive, still many hurdles to jump.

But I've still got time to go, to hit the new return to work target date that I have mentally given myself (you gotta have goals!) A lot of time to heal. So until then it's pretty much silence, and a MAJOR appt. with the Ear, Nose and Throat docs on Thursday, that I assume will go a long way in determining when I can come back to work. I'll probably be working with a speech pathologist along the way, regardless of how things turn out. I'll check in with that story at some point Thursday/Friday.

Funny last story: In my last blog, I spoke of my wife and reflexology having a great effect on me. I had a dentist appt. yesterday, with work being done on 3 teeth that have been problems for me for about 6 months. When my wife looked up the teeth I had drilled/filled/resined/shaved, they ALL had strong connections to the larynx, sinus, and neck, my problem areas! Crazy! And yes, there is a reflexology map of dental/teeth & body connections just the same as there is for feet.

Coincidence? Maybe. But If I wake up tomorrow (Wednesday as I write this) and have my voice back, I don't think so…

Do It or Get Off the Pot!

In a new interview with GQ magazine, film star Matthew McConaughey shared the romantic story of how he decided to marry his now-wife, Camila Alves.

According to him, it took her grabbing the bull by the horns, and saying, "C’mon, Big Boy, Mr. Easygoing-We’ll- Get-to-It-When-We-Get-to-It. Either s**t or get off the pot."

While Matthew didn't mention it in the interview, his wife will undoubtedly be releasing her new line of matrimonial greeting cards any time now - as soon as she gets off the pot.

The "Horror" of Modern Celebrity Culture

It's been 21 years since since legendary singer and songwriter Billy Joel has had a hit.

And according to an interview in The New Yorker, that's been on purpose.

He says he really dislikes the "horror of celebrity," and he's really uncomfortable with the demands it places on folks like him. 

In fact, he said that all the scrutiny and second-guessing made him feel like "there was a proctoscope up my butt."

Um, ouch!

Seems like that would make it very difficult to sit down at a piano too.

You're Goin' Down!

Chelsea Handler is well-known for just letting fly whatever comes to mind.

Some folks would suggest that her thoughts are often formed in her oral cavity instead of her cranium.

The other night on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, she was working toward something when she asked Conan and his co-host, Andy Richter, whether they liked the ocean.

Andy said he did - and Chelsea fumbled her way into an ill-defined and -conceived fat joke.

Andy handled it perfectly, and his response put Chelsea in her place.

Check it out.

Excuse Me, Sister, Like a What?

Sister Cristina, the Italian nun who won her nation's version of American Idol, has released a new single.

It's a cover - well, sort of - of Madonna's 1984 hit song, "Like a Virgin."

Yes, folks, a nun, singing "Like a Virgin."

Sister Cristina said in an interview with an Italian newspaper that her idea to cover the song is not meant to be "provocative or scandalous."

She says if you simply read the song's lyrics - and pay no attention to Madonna's interpretation - it's really a song about "love's ability to renew a person and rescue them from the past."

I guess covering "Like a Prayer" would have been expected, huh?

Believe It? Or Not?

In Back to the Future II, Marty McFly made a quick escape on a Hoverboard - a floating skateboard that existed in the future.

Remember the scene?


Well now, thanks to a company called ..., you can have a hoverboard all your own - for the miniscule setback price of $10,000.

It's part of a Kickstarter project, trying to raise $250,000. If you'd like a working prototype, it's yours for $10K.

A couple of things you need to know. The device can float only three centimeters off the ground, it cannot be steered, and it will only float over very special non-ferrous surfaces, like copper and aluminum.

But it none of that bothers you and you have the cash burning a hole in your pocket, go for it!

Being Married to Dennis Rodman "The Worst"?

 In a recent appearance on Oprah Winfrey's Where Are They Now?, actress Carmen Electra opened up about her short marriage with the NBA's Dennis Rodman.

Yes, the same guy who thinks he can solve the world's problems by playing basketball in North Korea was once married to Carmen.

And as described by Carmen, it was "the worst."

In her and his defense, she also said when it was good, it was "amazing."

She says she remembers thinking, immediately after the wedding, "Oh God, what did we do? What did we just do?"

Not a good start, no matter how you look at it...

The Super Scientific Way

Leave it to Ellen Degeneres to get into the sports prediction business.

On her show yesterday, she brought in two representatives of the two teams involved in the World Series, the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals.

Okay, truthfully, it was two guys in baseball pants and hats from the two teams - the wardrobe budget appears to have run out when it came to buying the guys jerseys.

But no one in the audience seemed to mind.

In fact, the super scientific predictor was to send the two guys into the audience - the predicted winner would be the dancer who collected the most money in his shorts.

Yes. No need to read it again - it's what happened.

So hang onto this to see how good Ellen's process is...
