I've mentioned before how much I love my Sirius radio...but like any relationship we've been going thru some ups and downs lately. The first down was the loss of the NHL to XM. Further salt was rubbed in my wound with the announcement that The Greatful freaking Dead would be given their own channel. It might not bug me so much if there already wasn't a Jam channel which played pretty much nothing but Dead songs. I've noticed too that other than the Underground Garage, the playlists on the music channels have become incredibly repetitive. For 13 bucks a month I deserve to never have to come across Dear Mr. Fantasy again. Thats the downs for me with Sirius...the plus side is that E Street Radio is back today...all Bruce all the time. The other plus is the always entertaining Howard Stern. I don't care how many times he spanks a porn star...its always worth tuning to hear it.
If there is anything to take away from the mistrial in the Phil Spector case, its that its still legal for celebrities to commit murder in Los Angeles. So Kevin Federline if you're listening....if you feel the need to take out Britney...and I'm not saying to do it...but in the event that ya do, odds are you won't go to jail:http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-me-celebrity27sep27,0,4228013.story?coll=la-home-center

Jerry Seinfeld and I have a lot in common. We both walk upright. We both have opposable thumbs. He had a show about nothing. I have a blog about nothing. Neither of us have seen an episode of The New Adventures of Old Christine:http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/r_m/index.html
5 bands that I hope never get Sirius channels dedicated exclusively to them:Genesis, Jethro Tull, Bread, Journey, and any southern rock band featuring a members whose last name rhymes with "cant' stant"
Who is taller...Billy Bush or Ronnie James Dio?
Tonight is the night....Van Halen opens up their pseudo reunion tour. By all accounts the band sounds good, looks good and is getting along good....er well. Should be a good time.

Barry Bonds career in San Francisco ends with a whimper and a whisper of "rosebud." Rosebud of course being the name of his favorite syringe:http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2007/09/27/SPRSSEIUT.DTL
What does it say about your Columbus Blue Jackets when Ticketmaster is sending me coupons to save 10 bucks on tickets to the season opener October 5th? It says the honeymoon is over kids. The Jackets traditionally are an after thought until after OSU football season is over but to struggle to sell tickets to the opener? Maybe if the Zamboni were to roll over Zherdev during the game...I'd pay to see that...or Maybe the Mt. Dew girls can engage in some sapphic behavior on the ice...I'd pay to see that too. If violence can't sell tickets, girl on girl action surely can.
