Kurt’s Blog: New Slogans for Nebraska

First off…Happy early Mother’s Day to all the moms out there…with special Mother’s Day wishes to my wife…Dexter & Priscilla are incredibly lucky to have such an incredible mom who they love so incredibly much….and to my mom…thank you for bringing me up right, and always being there for me.

Speaking of my wife…good luck to you tomorrow! She’s doing the Market-to-Market Relay…we’ll see you at the finish line! Have a great race…take it easy though…Sunday is Mother’s Day and your birthday…festivities and gifts will be had!

Alright…Nebraska Nice…it’s dumb…and I’ve taken it upon myself to come up with some better names:

Nebraska: “High”way to Colorado

Nebraska…Blechnebraska 2

Nebraska…Come for the Zoo…and the…hmm…we’ll get back to you.

Nebraska…Home to a proud football tradition…in the 1980s. 

Nebraska…Look ma, it’s…absolutely nothing…it’s Nebraska.

Nebraska…Field of Opportunities (what do you mean that one is already taken too?)

Nebraska…The Justin Bieber of America

Nebraska…Nebraska? I don’t know…what you don’t you go ask her?

Nebraska…Home of Larry the Cable Guy 

Nebraska….hmm…I’ve run out of PG ones…can’t afford to be fired…this list has to come to an end.

RihannaOkay…Avril Lavigne doesn’t want to be touched…I’m fine with that. But did you see the pics of Rihanna with her fans? That’s AWESOME. So much so, that I’m now a fan of Rihanna…not so much as I’ll listen to her awful “Birthday Cake” song…but I’m willing to let all else pass. I don’t know what I believe anymore…I’m a fan of Rihanna now. See celebs/musicians…have fun….people will like you more.

 

 

This might be my favorite story of 2014 so far…

Sebastian Bach (former Skid Row singer)….is upset. He has 800,000 followers on Facebook…but his new album only sold 5,000 copies….so he called out the other 795,000 people. “I would like to ask the other 795,000 people, ‘Why are you on my page?'”. I feel compelled to buy the album now.

If you’re in a bad mood…an instant pick-me-up? Lit’s “My Worst Enemy”…such a great song. That is all.

Something must be done on Modern Family...most notably…Claire. I know I’ve been critical of her character in the past…but her character has only gotten worse. She is so anti-fun…and all she wants to do is compete with everyone else. I find that Claire sucks the fun out of every storyline. Her yelling at Cam last week about hand-me-downs was just unbearable.

How good does Neighbors look? Grae Drake from RottenTomatoes.com says it’s hilarious.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
