I knew for months that my wife would be out of town for a week this October, but for some stupid reason I procrastinated buying more pot and wound up in an empty house with a wad of cash and no chronic.
Just like the Fabulous Freak Brothers said: Continue reading
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros preached to a packed – but not capacity – crowd at the Beaumont Club Saturday for 96.5 The Buzz’s annual Halloweenie Roast. A handful of concertgoers went all out and costumed up along with two female band members who sported fake mustaches for a song or two.
You know who Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are, right?
They have that one great, infectious hit song on the NFL commercial (“Home”), and that other one on that car commercial (“Janglin”).
The band consists of two guitars, two keyboards, bass, two percussionists, a trumpet, an occasional accordion, and of course, Mr. Sharpe himself (a.k.a. Alex Ebert) who usually plays a tambourine against his chest.

Not everyone has time to go back and catch every comment. Let alone the gems that show up in a category they may not regularly read… To that end, we present to you, a collection of our greatest hits: ***
"I had always heard what I thought was (sub)urban legend, that Alice Cooper attended a party at that house on the cliff overlooking I-70. Of course, those stories also included satanic ritual, drinking of blood, etc. Nice to know the real story. I had thought of that recently as AC was playing so near that location." *** hernia christopherson
"Weston’s AppleFest is a joke. Went there a couple years ago wanting to buy a fresh apple fritter and some fresh local apple cider. No fritter stands to be found, and the only apple cider was from Louisburg, KS. I’ll be Goddamned if I buy cider made over in Kansas at a town in Missouri’s apple festival. Needless to say, I haven’t been back since. Fuck Weston MO, and fuck their shitty AppleFest." *** Eric

Funded by her husband’s Pelosi-powered war chest, Democrat Stephane Moore is running for Congress in Johnson, Wyandotte and Douglas counties on November 2nd.
Moore hopes to replace her mysteriously absent-from-the-scene husband, Kansas congressman Dennis Moore. Channel 19/KCPT and the Kansas City Star have agreed to host and air a televised debate with her opponent, prominent, budget-cutting Republican, Kevin Yoder.
But now Moore is playing games with the rules.
And in the case of the Sun Newspapers, it looks like it’s about to set on a an unspecified number folks living in the wilds of Johnson County, Kansas. Because after 60 years of distributing its weekly newspapers free-of-charge (if you don’t count the panhandling platoons of school kids the Sun used to enlist for door-to–door guilt tripping), some Sun readers are now being asked to pay up or the Sun says it will shut up.
"Dear Sun Reader," begins an August 20th letter from co-publisher Steve Rose, son of Sun founder, Stan Rose. "Due to significant proposed postage increases for newspapers, we regret we must ask you to make a choice. You can continue to receive The Johnson County Sun for $19.95 per year (38 cents per issue) or $24.95 for two years (24 cents per issue)."
Severe consequences await Sun spotters who opt not to ante up.

There is no argument on this one. Kevin Kietzman, Larry Moore, Jason Whitlock – none of them have even close to the insane following of the Rock 98.9 FM’s Pied Piper of the Masses. Dare’s been No. 1 in morning radio (and for that matter all radio) for ten years now. He’s got monster ratings and has always been number one in the market here. Continue reading
