they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it
will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they
will get well."

For the last week JDOG-17 has been getting phone calls over a commercial that has been airing. It's for Hardee's Carl's Jr new flat buns patty melt. Because of the calls we have now made it an anthem in part of of the news room. I think it's an ingenious commercial and is very creative. Flashy like a music video and is a parade of rap music and the use of a woman's "posterior" in said music. Who ever wrote the lyrics is a genius here is a few lines
I like them flat like a pancake stack
In Anatomy class you'd have a butt minus
stand sideways girl you disappear
Then the choirs of: Flat Buns, I like flat buns, I like the flat ones!
Here is the real comedy of the situation. We have found out that Hardee's/Carl's Jr is not one of out clients! We don't even air the thing, yet some idiots started getting people to call every station and tell them to pull the commercial. Hello idiots, you might want to see which stations are airing it first. Because of your calls, I actually saw the commercial for the first time and now I'm posting it because of you.
I guess people don't like flat buns. They would rather have some junk in the trunk.

"Lt. Hammonds, what do you think we should name the base?"
(Snickers) What about (snicker) Seymour Johnson?
Good man, Seymour Johnson it is!
Of course, I couldn't let it go with just the name. "So Boston, you going down to Seymour Johnson." Of course that's when it is revealed that it's near Morehead, NC. Are you kidding? Is this one giant dick joke after another? The best part of the fun is when the two local photographers made this statement, "Until you Yankees can down we never thought of that." That makes it even better for me, for years no one thought anything about the name. It was just Seymour Johnson, not SEYMOUR JOHNSON. I need to grow up and stop laughing at things like this, but I can't.

Online Videos by Veoh.com
I've been a fan of Ash ever since I saw them live at the CD101 fest a few years ago. They are a great Pop/Rock from Northern Ireland who has had a few hits everywhere but here in America. This is one of those mysteries that only Robert Stack will be able to figure out. Even though the new album, Twilight of the Innocents, came out in June I was unable to get my hands on a copy, come to find out there aer multiple iTunes based on what country you are in. So I could not buy it there because it's only on the UK iTunes. A few weeks ago I finally find a semi cheap ($16) price for an import and I ordered it.
Twilight is a slight departure from the traditional Ash sound, but in this case it is not a bad thing. The album has a lot of hard guitar riffs, but has what I call a more mature sound. Twilight has a very tight sound and a good beat all the way through. The last album, Meltdown, was a balls to the wall rock album which is how Ash plays live, but Twilight is a little more mellow and doesn't have as many tempo swings.
The first Track I Started a Fire is an up tempo song about losing someone and wanting them back. Tim Wheeler pours his soul out and his vocals off the top keep the song moving till everyone kicks in. The thing about is is that a lot of the songs are what most consider love songs, but for some reason they don't have that feel. It's the way Tim crafts the lyrics:

Hobbton 19 North Johnston 7
OK I'm confused, did I some how come across a secret Ohio State Michigan game? No, it's just both schools wanted to confuse me. The game was at North Johnston, which is a haul from the station and I felt like I was working for The Network again. For the most part highs school football is the same anywhere you go. The only exception is the large schools that take the game serious. I don't think I'll get to see teams as good as Elder, St. X, Colrane, St Iggy or Glenville. But these kids played hard and it felt good to be on the sideline.
I got to shoot most of the first half and I got a couple of good highlights, but nothing spectacular. North had a decent touchdown run and Hobbton's tail back dove into the end zone which made the three yard run look better. Regretfully Michigan, I mean Hobbton won...stupid confusing uniforms.

DISC GOLF FUN
Since it has been so hot and I well, had a thumb and wrist injury I could not disc golf. I don't know what got into be, but I wanted to disc golf the weekend away. As usual I had high hopes and wanted to get 4 courses in. Well, I only got two in, but I had a lot of fun.
The first course was out n Zebulon, I've played there before, but it's kind of a haul (35 minutes), it's a pretty drive in the country and I get to see a lot of the tobacco fields in the area. The course if fair at best. The holes are not well marked and you have to play around some ball fields and a gravel road. It didn't help that I couldn't throw a disc straight and more than 5 feet off the ground.
On Sunday I left church and went out to Durham because I heard of a great course. Luckily, the course was really good and worth the 50 minute drive. It reminded me a lot like a mixture of the three courses I played in Columbus, lots of trees, fairly straight shots on a lot of the holes and pretty well laid out. The biggest problem I had, besides throwing a disc, was the hills, it was all up and down. For the last 6 weeks all I have done is sit at a computer at work and that dropped my stamina a little, so it was more tiring than I had hoped, so I struggled the last few holes. I'd defiantly come back to this course when I have a lot of free time and extra money for gas.
Shawn, Melissa, The Wife and I have tried to have a game night for a few months ago, but things like vacations, work schedules and general bad luck have forced us to cancel every time. Well luck turned and we actually had game night. I cooked up some burgers and chicken, they brought some drinks and some games and we had a good time. We only got one game in, because it took forever! We played 90s Trivial Pursuit and I forgot how tedious the game can be. You have to land on a specific square to get a game piece and it took forever. While playing we did learn one thing. I know way too much about absolutely nothing. If you dropped me off in the middle of nowhere, I'd probably die within the first 10 minutes, but ask me who was the first person to climb to the top of the Murderhorn and then leave his wallet, I'd tell you it was Homer. Maybe I need to rethink my life..... Nah!
There was more that happened during my time off, but I can't get the words to flow to describe them. All I will say it was a great near five days off and I have no desire to go back to work.
