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.
Happy 4th of July to Puddle Of Mudd front man Wes Scantlin, who yesterday pleaded guilty to cocaine possession. He won't however be going to jail unless he screws up. Scantlin was charged with a felony in April along with two misdemeanors of being under the influence of a controlled substance and driving without a license.
New York City Mayor Bloomberg let it the s-word slip before the Nathan Hot Dog Eating Contest. The speech which was cleverly written got the Mayor all flustered. At the end of his speech he chuckled 'Who wrote this ? Watch the video now.
It's the 4th of July, you've spent all day relaxing and pre-gaming to see fireworks later that night to celebrate America's Independence. You get to your viewing location, crack open a beer and wait for dusk. Anticipation grows when it's finally dark enough for the big bay boom to start. However it fails as every single firework in the arsenal goes off at the same time and the fireworks that were supposed to be 30 minutes, ends up being 30 seconds!

From the 1996 film 'Independence Day', where aliens are threatening to take over the world, Bill Pullman's character who is the President of the United States gives a moving speech to take back Earth. If any of the candidates running for President in November give a speech like this, I guarantee a victory. Have a great 4th of July.
Police in Australia are looking for the so called 'Buxom Bandit' who robbed a gas station this morning. Don't know how you can miss her, she the crook with the big ta-ta's. She didn't wear a mask to cover her face either.. probably figured who would look at her face? I do believe she's a blonde.
After Aerosmith and the Global Warming tour blew into Albany and rocked the Times Union Center on Friday night, doctors have ordered Steven Tyler to provide vocal rest.

The next scheduled date is Thursday in Detroit.
We here in the Capital Region have been lucky so far with these disrupted summer storms that surged across the Mid-Atlantic states. From Baltimore to Atlanta millions of Americans do not have power and don't expect it to be restored until the end of the week. Add in that a heat wave of 90 plus degree temperatures, makes people realize how much they depend on electricity. We want to know if that happened here in the Albany area, what would you miss the most?
Five Finger Death Punch is bringing the biggest tour they have even done to the Capital Region. The Trespass America tour will be stopping at the Glens Falls Civic Center on Wednesday August 8th.

This week will be hot and a heat wave will cut across the Capital Region. If you have no desire to head to a lake, pool or even the Great Escape's Splashwater Kingdom and a huge yard then you could make something like this backyard water slide with loop. This home made water slide is somewhat ghetto, but looks like its a lot of fun on a hot day!
Having a 4th of July cookout? This year, upgrade your BBQ with a Maine lobster. In fact you'll pay less for lobster than you would if you go the traditional route of hamburgers and hot dogs. Lobster prices are going down and two area supermarkets are advertising lobster at less than $6 a pound.
