"Way Down" - Elvis

According to WMCTV

"Speak To Me" - Mary Mary

I know you all heard about (Mr. Ted Williams), the homeless man with the "Golden Voice" that was reunited with society, his mother, and in his own interpretation - his affirmation of God.

I felt that it was only appropriate that I thought of a gospel song immediately when he said it.

Doesn't hurt that he's reunited to cash as well :)

"Achy Breaky Heart" - Billy Ray Cyrus

Not that YOUTUBE would be the first place I'd look to for guidance when I'm having a heart attack - But a new study (how can IIIIIIII get paid to do one of these studies - okay, I digress) indicates that an alarming amount of CPR videos on YOUTUBE are incorrect.

Quoting from the article from Fox News

"Close to two-thirds, for example, either incorrectly described the rate of CPR chest compressions or did not cover that detail at all. And 57 percent fell short on showing viewers how deep the chest compressions should be."

For those that know me, don't go on youtube for life threatening help. Just call 911 :)

The Story


"Way 2 Many Chickz" - New Boyz

According to news reports, restaurant chain "Chick-fil-A" has decided to throw financial support into a series of Anti-Gay conferences which is stirring controversy - so much so that it's reported that they removed some of their banners from ads for the conference.

Conference Info

"Wasted Time" - The Eagles

How many people knew that Congress was back in session? (Okay, besides the guy with the American Flag shirt on yelling from the back :) ) Now, how many people knew that Incoming House Speaker John Boehner was being sworn in? (Okay American Flag guy - sit down).


That's what I call wasted time. No offense. I can appreciate the effort, but come on. I don't think people really log into facebook to watch Congressional Meetings, hmmmmm, maybe that's the point.

"Money (Thats What I Want)" - Beatles

Well, It seems that OJ Mayo (star for the Memphis Grizzlies) didn't play in Monday night's game. Not because he was ill, not because he was holding out for contract negotiations. Nooooooo, that's too typical.

OJ wasn't in the game because fellow teammate Tony Allen clocked (that's hit for some of you) OJ for not paying up on a debt from a card game. Tony made it clear what he wanted - His money!!!!

OKAY!!!!! If Memphis doesn't seem small enough, I was told to check out a video that was posted on YOUTUBE containing footage of what is being termed "BIG GURL TWERKING THE HE(double hockey sticks) out of Usher during a concert in MEMPHIS"

Turns out she's an old classmate.

First thing that came time mind when I saw the video ... you guessed it - OMG
