PRISON PEN PAL:
Today we received a letter from our dear Prison Pen Pal, Paul Dylan Riley. He addressed his letter to Amy Lee from Evanescence. He filled an entire paper (no really, front, back, and every corner) explaining that he was so sorry for disappointing her and wishes she would just love him. We also looked at The Echo, a Texas Prisoners' Paper. It turns out that there are unspoken rules that prisoners should follow.
Wednesdays we shine a light on That Guy – the guy (or girl) who does something douchey and either doesn’t realize it or doesn’t apologize for it. This week it's That Guy who asks: “What’re we doing for the Super Bowl?” If you haven’t been invited already, you’re not allowed over. Jason doesn’t like those who treat the Super Bowl like a party. If you’re a “bandwagon football guy” and only watch football because it’s the Super Bowl, you obviously don’t care enough to go to a viewing party. No talking, just football.
HAVE JASON PIMP OUT YOUR SUPER BOWL PARTY:
Jason doesn’t like throwing his own parties, but he would LOVE to pimp yours out. (He’s better at doing that.) E-mail him at Jason@krox.com to tell him why you deserve your party to be pimped out.
AUSTIN MUSIC AWARDS:
Right now the Austin Chronicle is doing its annual poll where you can vote for all your favorite facets of the Austin music scene, including the most important categories: Radio Show and Deejay. We’d love for you to vote for us. If you use this link to vote for someone else, though, we might kill you in your sleep.
Deb went on a rant to complain about people who don’t close doors. It may be a male/female difference in personalities, but it definitely gets to Deb’s OCD. She also has a problem with procrastination. It has taken her 13 months to respond to a Christmas letter she received from her family across the pond, but is it too late to send one out? Help us come up with an extravagant excuse for her.
COMEDY AND HOT DOGS:
Join Deb tonight at Frank downtown for Relish, a showcase of stand-up comedy and music, benefitting The Flatwater Foundation. This is a great charity that we’ve worked with in the past, which provides mental and emotional help for families of people diagnosed with cancer. Learn all about the event here.
We're all about supporting animal charities and bringing you the happiness of animals in your own home. So you should check out our friends at Love-A-Bull, who are currently looking for a home for Alfred. He's very well-trained and gets along well with others. Plus, as you can tell, he's quite the comedian. Give Alfred and the other adopt-a-bulls a look here.
I LOVE YOU CALL:
At 8:50 Deb calls a random business and tries to get the person answering the phone to say, “I love you.” Today we called Rejuvenation Spa in Queensbury, NY. Deb asked to get a couples massage on V-Day. VERY romantic. They do deep…tissue massage and are sending her home with some chocolate for an at-home massage. Rachel, thanks for giving Deb some chocolate, but you’re rude for hanging up on us.
DOES DEB KNOW STUFF (ABOUT FOOTBALL):
Every day we “trivialize” Deb by asking her questions about the game of football, then laughing when she doesn’t know the answers. Today Deb impressed us with good guessing skills; she guessed right with “knowing” that in 1988 a journalist asked how long Doug Williams had been a black quarterback, and also that Ryan Urlacher wore a Vitamin Water hat and was fined for it.
We went over the President’s State of the Union address, where he talked about what is right with America. Everyone loved how the "son of a barkeep" was able to become Speaker of the House… Very Inspiring, Mr. President.
A 73 year-old Florida man held up a bank with black undies on his head.
And the Biebs now has a petition going around the US trying to deport him. Looks like his almost illegal blood alcohol level is stirring up controversy.
Yesterday was Media Day for the Super Bowl. We’ve realized that it is just a free-for-all for the most absurd questions. Questions included: what can be done to stop making it rain in the strip club, and who would you like to see in a thong: Andy Reid or Mark Mangino.
Are we ever going to pay college athletes? Northwestern may be paid by a labor union. Players could get their own medical care and insurance. They’re not looked at like employees but still go through the same amount of stress and work.
