Born and raised in Schenectady NY. The only thing I liked to do when I was a kid was listen to HARD ROCK and go to concerts. Although I couldn't play a single instrument, the closest I could get to music was by going into radio out of college.
Last week, pop singer Lana Del Ray performed a cover of Nirvana's Heart Shaped Box in Australia and did a really good job of it. Her performance must have really upset Kurt Cobain's widow Courtney Love as she tweeted to Lana the real meaning of the song.

Guys will do just about anything on a dare, even if its stupid. A couple of guys are in a men's bathroom and one says I'll give you $80 if you eat a urinal cake. Apparently he needed the money, because he reaches in, grabs the cake and takes a bite. Beware, you'll probably gag after watching this!
USA Olympian Misty May-Treanor told the NY Post, that despite new rules that will allow women's volleyball team's to wear shorts and t-shirts, the US team will continue to wear skimpy bikini's during competition.
