"I See a Darkness in You"

The debut of Season 5 of Game of Thrones is still months away, but the folks on the production team don't want us to forget about them.

So why not tease us with a 10-second glimpse into what's to be?

This one's all about Arya, the headstrong and fiercely independent youngest daughter of the House of Stark.

Don't blink - you don't want to miss anything.

And if you sign up with the website - ThreeEyedRaven.com - you'll be able to receive further updates via Twitter as they come along.

What GOT fan wouldn't want something like that?

The Force Awakens Slowly

We've still got to wait another 13 months for the arrival on the big screen of Star Wars: The Force Awakens - aka, Star Wars Episode 7.

But the team at LucasFilm is already putting out trailers to pique our interest.

Two hit the internet this week. So check them out.

Will you wait to pass judgment? Or are you currently salivating like a Wookie?

Um, Bette, Say What?

Criticism of Ariana Grande came out of left field last week, when Bette Midler had some nasty things to say about one of the world's hottest pop singers.

Bette said that Ariana's act was too sexual, and said, "You don't have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead..."

The folks at TMZ have more on that...

 
But it looks like things have been patched up, with an apology from Bette... Even money says the two of them get together for a Tony Bennett/ Lady Gaga-style duet before Christmas.

Things You Didn't Know About Yesterday

The folks at Time magazine put together a little video to remind us all about the things we may not know about Thanksgiving.
  • Whom do we have to thank for the idea of feasting on the fourth Thursday of November?
  • When did we decide that Thanksgiving would fall on the fourth Thursday of November?
  • What president called Thanksgiving the most ridiculous idea ever conceived?
  • When did football become part of the Thanksgiving tradition?
Three of those four questions are answered here - plus some others too.

Study up. There will be a quiz - in another 364 days.

Insensitive or Sincere?

Some are calling this tweet from the Washington Redskins one of the more insensitive tweets of the year - maybe ever.

The team is still embroiled in controversy over its name. Native Americans find it offensive, and there's been a major push - this year, especially - to have it changed.

It's a hot topic.

So maybe this tweet they sent out yesterday might not have been the best idea, given the history Native Americans experienced with our forefathers after the first Thanksgiving.
  Not so much the message - it's the graphic that some are questioning.

What do you think? Sincere? Maybe just a little insensitive? Or completely over the top insensitive?

Bye Bye Clydesdales?

Schlitz may have been the beer that made Milwaukee famous - for better or worse - but Budweiser is the beer that made Clydesdales famous.

When you think of the giant draught horses, don't you instantly think of them pulling a Budweiser beer wagon?

If you're between the ages of 21 and 27, maybe not. And you're the target market that Budweiser's after, in an attempt to regain its market share, which has been slipped steadily for the past ten years.

And the folks who market Budweiser don't think that the majestic Clydesdale is the best way to reach that demographic.

I'm not a Bud guy, but I have to admit, I'm tempted to give it another try every time I see an ad like this. How about you?

No Thanksgiving for You!

Did you know that some people don't celebrate Thanksgiving?

Yes, it's true.

Take Seth Rogen, for instance.

Until recently, the ubiquitous movie star believed he wasn't allowed to celebrate Thanksgiving - because of his heritage.

Here. Let Seth tell you himself...

Happy Thanksgiving! Rob Lucas Is Thankful For...


Tuesday I had lunch with someone I hadn't seen since I lost my voice. He was pretty amazed at how close to myself I sounded, while still not being 100%. He asked how bad it was when I started, so I took out my phone and played him a recording made during my first speech therapy session. At that point, I noticed it was exactly one month to the day of that first session. Wow, much has changed in one month…and for the good. And I owe it all to Karen Bunce, my Speech Therapist at Buffalo Therapy Group. I can't imagine where I would be without her. I'm so happy and thankful to have her in my life as a vocal mentor and friend.

I'm also thankful for my co-workers, for all their mental and physical support. Especially the people you hear on-air every day, many of whom have had to add work hours onto their day, and in some cases turn their personal and business life upside down to fill in the places where I would normally be.

I am thankful for RLITM Producers Brandi, Jimmy, and Alex. They take random e-mail and texts I send them at all hours of the day, add in their personal magic, and use the result to make our morning show page and social media sites engaging and interesting. Though I do wish they would use spell check before posting! (I couldn't resist…)

I am thankful to all of you reading this and who have kept up with me via facebook and twitter posts. Your thoughts and wishes mean more than you know. I hope I can repay you.

I am thankful for having the chance to deliver Thanksgiving dinners to those in Kenmore-Tonawanda who can't get out or cook for themselves on Turkey day. Thank you Dan Wiles and Ken-Ton Meals On Wheels for showing me a new path.

And above all, I am thankful for my wife, Linda. The smartest, most thoughtful, least selfish person I have ever met. I have no idea how she puts up with me. And it doesn't hurt that she is a hottie! I adore her. Always will.

Happy Thanksgiving!
