A Working Mom's Open Letter To Gwyneth Paltrow

I usually defend Gwyneth Paltrow, but after some things she said in a few different interviews about how "rough" acting mom's have it, I just can't any more.  She certainly pulled a a Princess Gwyneth.  MacKenzie Dawson of the NY POST penned this Working Mom's Open Letter To Gwyneth...and it sooo good. It got a lot of favs when I tweeted it, so I thought I'd share it for non-twitterheads here.

Feel Good Friday Video: Love Gun...Way Back When

We've given away tons of tix for KISS and DEF LEPPARD at Darien Lake August 13th, and during one of the giveaways we got into the lyrics of the iconic LOVE GUN.  Made us wanna reach back for a classic performance from 1977, when the album and song were brand new.  Dig the cool "This is our new single..." intro from Paul Stanley...

New Music - Helena Paparizou's Survivor...

Another Melodifestivalen favorite of mine from this year.  I'm really surprised it didn't win - it's like the perfect pop song.  Came in 4th...

What's more annoying that someone carrying on a very loud conversation on their cell phone? Someone carrying on that conversation at Disneyland. Luckily, there's this guy to show people the error of their ways.

What's In Rob's Head?

Haven’t done this in a while.  Random Thoughts From Rob...

Like many, I like a lot of music you would NEVER think I would be into.  I’ve been heavy into Jethro Tull lately.  The Whistler and Locomotive Breathe have been on repeat on my car CD player.

Will Smith, Adam Sandler, and Will Ferrell.  3 of the most likeable actors…people we root for and love as guests on talk shows cuz they always come with material.  But at the same time, for the past 5 years, they have pretty much been box office poison.  Honestly, name one movie by any of them that didn’t tank, or was even mildly close to fulfilling its promise in the past half-decade.  Maybe JUST GO WITH IT from Sandler (and Jennifer Aniston). MAYBE.  But off the top of my head, I can’t think of anything else.


The last year of the Bud Selig Commissioner era can’t end fast enough.  Never has a sport lost so much ground to other sports as baseball has under his leadership.  Or lack of.  The next commish has to get World Series games starting no later than 7:30, eliminate :30 sec of commercials between every half inning, and find ways to speed up the game without changing rules and integrity.  Oh, two franchises and the DH have to go as well.  Do all that and we’re back to 2:20 games. 


My wife and I could make the exact same sandwich, and hers will look and taste better.  She says it’s because she does it with love and care, and I do it like a bricklayer.  She’s right.

So far the NCAA Tourney has left me empty, much like the NHL has for the past 3 years.  It’s just a big tourney of very good teams, no one great. And the team that gets hot at the right time can win it all.  The lesser quality of play is really beginning to show.  College teams now have starters than should be on the bench learning, and end of bench players  who may have been in Division 2 15 years ago.  The NBA needs to adopt the rule they are looking into, that would pretty much force players to stay in school till they were sophomores.

On Demand Video: Taylor Swift Visits Kids At Sloan Kettering

56th GRAMMY Awards - Show
Taylor Swift quietly does this in just about every city she performs and visits.  Spending time with kids in hospitals.  It's very rare there is a report or video of her visits.  When she last came to Buffalo, there was a strict no video or pic policy in effect for media.  She simply doesn't want kids and fans thinking she's doing it for publicity.  And she's not.  Another reason why I can't figure out the Taylor Haters. If you don't like her music, that's one thing.  But not liking the person, is another.  Hollywood has more about Taylor's 5 HOUR hospital visit.  It's a great read!
