Blow Up Your TV

Well, apparently some aging, gun-toting hippy from Wisconsin took John Denver’s advice to heart the other day, right after witnessing Bristol Palin advance to the next round on Dancing with the stars. A Dane County Sheriff’s detective says that Steven Cowan, from Vermont, Wisconsin felt that the Jr. Palin was not nearly as good dancer as the others and was only being kept on the show because of her famous mother, so he took out his single-shot shotgun and pumped a round into the set.

Police say Cowan, who was was later charged second-degree reckless endangerment, loaded his shotgun and blasted the TV before turning the gun on his wife, who escaped.

Tactical officers surrounded the home and managed to talk Cowan, who faces to up to 10 years in prison if convicted, out of his house.

Radio 19.5

While we here at CuppaCafe certainly want everyone to read our blog, I do want you to take a spare moment to click over to another blogger and check out what he has to say. This is my son (the Eagle Scout), Dylan, who is off at Syracuse University, and this blog is (apparently), a class project that he doing.

I’m not entirely sure what is going on with what he is posting, except to say that it is about they type of music that he listens to, and prefers. Not to be my father (who still thinks of the Beatles as “Hippy music”), I’m OK with what my kids listen to, I’m just not sure that I can listen to it long (or in the case of Dylan’s listening to), at all.

Having said all of that, I present to you Radio 19.5. So, go, check it out, leave comments, and oh yeah, you can apparently even follow the boy on Twitter.

Let Me Go!

I heard this catch little ditty years and years ago. I immediately fell in love with it’s infectious lyrics. Unfortunately, I have not heard it often enough to ever learn who sung it. Today, I heard it again, and thanks to the “Last Song Played” feature on the website of the radio station to which I listen, I (finally) discovered the song is Let me Go, by Cake. Now you too can enjoy it as much as I.

Coming to a TV near you soon

Burger King is currently running a promotion with the Nickelodeon cartoon SpongeBob SquarePants. How do I know this? I saw the following commercial on TV:

I then saw the longer version online:

Can someone please explain to me why someone thought teaming Sir Mix-a-Lot’s Baby Got Back with a toy aimed at 10-year-old (boys) was a good idea?
