Kurt’s Blog: The Squirrels And I Share a Brain

You see that? That squirrel is on point! Yesterday, this hawk was swoopin’ around in our backyard.

I thought this hawk was crazy cool (I’m a suburb kid…I know not the rural life, so hawks are still super fascinating to me). Of course, I was scared of the hawk. But not as scared of it as all the squirrels in Urbandale were…holy cow…every little critter was at top-volume.

Yep…if a hawk is near…the screams you hear are 40% squirrel…60% me.

RIP Comedian John Pinette. A very funny comedian…who we had the pleasure of having in the studio twice (I can’t find the pic…arrgh). Only 50…and was incredibly funny.

Britney Spears might be on the next Michael Jackson album….to some, this is the most irritating news ever. To my wife though, she said, extremely excitedly, “Why wouldn’t they be?” She loves Brit-Brit…and still like MJ’s music.

Umm…I drank this. It was good for awhile…but then I realized that I needed a beer chaser for my beer. It had a good bite…but it was actually too much.

Here’s another reason why Ed Sheeran is great. His new album is in the works, and it’s either going to be called “X” or “Multiply”. More singers/bands should leave the name of the album up to the discretion of their fans. X…multiply…whichever you like, right?

You guys…Snookie’s is open.

Rapper Drake might just be the biggest fair-weather fan ever. He tried to get into the Miami Heat’s locker room after they won last year…and now he’s in the Kentucky Wildcats locker room talking about how big of a fan he is of them. I highly doubt it…enjoy the ride on the bandwagon.

I know it’s fake…but still, great storylines happen at the WWE…The Undertaker lost last night at Wrestlemania 30. The streak of 21 in a row came to an end. By the way, they need to stop selling fun masks at Toys R’ Us…I have too much.

Demi Lovato‘s nude “scandal” is here…and I could care less. More importantly, why are women still lusting after Wilmer Vilderrama (spelling not important here). My wife was creeped out by this…she accurately pointed out that we only know him as Handy Manny in our house….which then resulted in numerous “tool” jokes…to a 50% rate of funny.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
