Hitting the High Notes 3/1

From time to time I come across stuff that I want to blog about but have no real place to put it... they aren't random thoughts and usually aren't big enough for a single blog post so I save them up and post sort of a smorgasbord of interesting stuff and I call it "hitting the high notes"... Here goes:

-Maxim Magazine is pretty embarrassed after admitting that they gave the Black Crowes a lukewarm review on their new album - Without even listening to the whole thing... Uhh Maxim I know your goal in life is to be Playboy lite but come on at least have some shred of legitimacy.

-Boy George denies imprisoning Norwegian man at his London home - I am sorry but I just find that headline funny as heck.

-Students at Chapel Hill high School were recently busted in a HUGE cheating scandal. Now I know you say this kind of thing happens all the time but the ironic thing is that this particular high school is supposed to be the toughest most academically prestigious high school in the entire state of North Carolina. They are a public high school who thinks of themselves as a private school. If you get a chance read the article these kids were apparently passing a master key to the school around for years and getting tests ahead of time. It's a big mess and couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of stuck up elitists.

-Did you guys know that the states of Georgia and Tennessee are apparently about to go to war with one another? Apparently somebody in the 1800s messed up and part of Tennessee is actually Georgia's and they want to annex a good portion of the Tennessee river... It may turn into a mini civil war... what do you think about that MickyT ??

-You have got to be kidding me. It's a doggone chartbuster -- a song audible only to dogs has topped New Zealand record charts, and is looking to go global. A Very Silent Night, recorded at a frequency only dogs can hear, was so popular among owners it hit number one at Christmas I don't make these things up folks I just report them. And please don't tell me that you would actually pay money to download this song that only your dog can hear... Yeesh

-I hate to say I told you so but... remember that guy who got mauled at the San Fran zoo by the tiger. I blogged about it here. Well sure enough I was right and the "victim" was drinking an taunted the tiger... Once again I say this is just nothing more than Darwin's natural selection at it's finest.

-And finally there was an incident in Arlington Oregon recently where the Mayor Carmen Kontur-Gronquist was forced from office because there was a racy picture of her posing in bra an panties on a firetruck. Where was this picture found? You guessed it On her Myspace page. Now granted I guess the residents of Arlington Oregon (all 500 of them) have the right to recall their Mayor for whatever reason they want to but I will show the picture here so you can decide for yourself how "racy" it is. But the moral of this story is this... ADULTS SHOULDN'T USE MYSPACE - NOTHING GOOD CAN COME OUT OF IT. The only exception is if you are just checking up on your kids...because not much good can come from them using it either. Here is the picture:

From Myspace

From a town council meeting

Your thoughts?

A Very Silent Night.... I think that was done by Mariah Carrey :)

That Mayor is hot, what a bunch of sticks in the mud!

Lulita said...

I wonder if the Hatfields and McCoys will band together. Oh they are from West Virgina. I'm sure there are other fueding family clans that can band together to fight the good fight. They should take a page from Rodney King "can't we all just get along" Wouldn't you love your dog enough to get him a portable cd player and the single? I don't think the pic is racy actually I think it looks tranny.

Doc said...

Leighann - LOL @ Mariah Carey

Lulita - I don't think she looks like a tranny... ROFL!

Leighann said...

It's only tranny from the neck up, and who's looking there anyway?

Lulita said...

Seriously though if she posted such a picture on her my space page AND has a my space page maybe she isn't the woman they want running their town. She should be removed from office because she is STUPID. You are in politics for crying out loud. Didn't you think some one some where might think it was the WRONG thing to do! Hey for a regular gal, be buff and show it proud, for a Mayor just look at yourself in the mirror.

Leighann said...

Maybe the conservative uptights aren't the voters she was going for! LOL

Matt-Man said...

Whoa...She's a man babyyyy. Cheers!!

Lulita said...

matt-man, hahahaheeshee

Doc said...

My point too Lulita... she shouldn't have been on there in the first place... However how much of a big deal can being mayor of a 500 peson town be anyway... I mean really.

Doc said...

Voters in this town of about 500 voted narrowly Monday to recall Carmen Kontur-Gronquist. The tally was 142-139. City officials said the recall is effective Tuesday.


I am posting a second picture of her too...

Lulita said...

Now now it's not the SIZE that counts but the MOTION brought before the board.

Lulita said...

Don't hate but I like Boy George. No I'm not talking about the Mayor in this comment, although.

Lulita said...

ha ha ha I clicked on the web page for Arlington and it says they are the home of the honkers, coincidence? of course they are speaking about geese.

Micky-T said...

That battle between TN and GA goes back to about 1790. It all had to do with the Cherokee Nation. Basically, who could screw the Indians out of their land more.
If you read Trail Of Tears [John Ehle],you'll understand how those two states really went at each other.
All for screwing of the most civilized Indians in the country.

I got my hill all secure so, let'm come.....ehhh haaaw

Single In The City said...

I think they should get over it! Fine her for using Myspace and let her be, It was prolly a bunch of the women mad that she had a nice bod!

I am sorry for the guy at the zoo,
but he was playing with fire right there, tigers need love to!

Georgia has been fine thus far, Let Tenn BE!

@Chapel Hill High: Are You smarter than a 5th grader..Answer Only with the master tests.. They are not to dumb tho, they got away with it for along time, the teachers are the dumb ones!

Hey Doc, I was going to pose for Maxim!

Boy George? Yeah I am speechless. BTW I googled him, He did it!

Phfrankie Bondo said...

with a mug like that I'd be showing my panties too!(or boxer shorts)!!

As American as Apple Pie said...

Well, when you name your kid Carmen, what do you expect? (Apologies if anyone's child is named Carmen) But, why would you put that one MySpace, especially when you're in a public office? Duh!!!

Single--you are probably right about the women being jealous. She has a hot bod!

Doc--It's amazing the hoopla that can come up in a small town! She was probably bored out of her gourd and so she decided to bring a little culture to her little po-dunk town. Culture being a relative term here.

Doc said...

Lulita - you are too funny~!

MickyT - Interesting. I may need to read more on that

Single - Pose for Maxim huh? Like I said it's Playboy lite.

Frankie - Ya'll are just not right picking on her. I think she is attractive. I am just bringing up the stupidity of her posting a pic on myspace... What was she doing on there in the first place?

Apple - It is amazing the hoopla that can crop up in a small town... I agree ;-)

Leighann said...

I think there are 500 people in the world who need to get over it. Just because she's Mayor doesn't mean she can't be sexy and have a life.

Leighann said...

By the way, the second picture still looks like she's got tranny head! :)

CarmenSinCity said...

I heard about that chick being forced to resign. I think that's a little much, I mean, she was dumb though for putting up a myspace account - of course people are going to find it - it's myspace.

She should have gotten a slap on the wrist though - I can't believe she got fired over it.

Jahooni said...

It will be a very sad day if and when our states start fighting each other....
just my thought.

Jay said...

So if kids have been cheating at that school for years, wouldn't it be funny if kids who graduated from there last year got kicked out of UNC or wherever they are in college now because their grades were fake and they lied on their applications.

That mayor is hot. Of course I have been drinking this afternoon. ;-)

Jahooni said...

jay,
your drinking while playing me scabulous? And you are beating me by 100 points!!! crap.

oh hi doc! ;)~

Doc said...

Jay drinking..... Never woudl have believed it... Get him Jahooni!

Jahooni said...

do you want to play Doc? maybe i can trust you because i don't trust jay ;)~

Leighann said...

Geez I go out to dinner with my family and I come back to everyone playing with themselves!

No fair! Someone play with me!

The Mountain Cat said...

Hi y'all, I am back from Cooperstown. Wow, I'd love to have her as my mayor! She's ripped!

Jahooni said...

your new picture looks like you are getting it in your butt, just in case you wanted to know... but much better than the scary face ;)~

Lulita said...

It does look like your backfields in motion mt cat. Maybe the tranny mayor would be good for your town.

Leighann said...

Okay, I showed the mayors pics to my husband without tell him who she was or anything.... he voted tranny all the way.

Even after reading him the article he still didn't believe me that she's actually a woman! LOL

The Mountain Cat said...

I found that photo while researching bumper stix.

EE said...

No good comes from myspace, period.

It's all a bunch of 12 year old sluts and 50 year old pervs...

and the chick in the bra and panties posing on a firetruck.
