The Morning After Blog

Life Lessons, Crispin Glover & Song Fights

  • Print

So, it's Friday which means a short and sweet blog today so you can carry on with your day and weekend.

Big J’s Life Lesson deals with the pressure in our country to watch the Olympics and cheer on America. Look, your patriotism is not based on watching a few cheeseball sports on television. We already know America is the best and don’t need a few gold medals (which are actually made of 93% silver by the way) to validate that. Big J says you are free to skip the Olympics this year. Maybe utilize that time to spend with family or work on something constructive. 

 

A few things happening out there currently: the opening show for the Olympics will take $41 million to pull off, Three Days Grace has a new album called Transit Of Venus coming out on October 2nd, and a new Step Up movie is on the way. Well, at least the second item above is worth checking out.

 

 

Crispin Glover from films such as Back To The Future, Charlie’s Angels, Alice In Wonderland, Hot Tub Time Machine, etc., joined us on the show to discuss the screenings of his own films here in town at The Egyptian Theater. You can find that interview right here: http://www.xrock.com/morningafter/podcasts/164032786.html

 

Today’s Cage Match was a good one: Papa Roach vs. Linkin Park. The Roach pulled it off by a mere two votes and will return Monday.

 

 

That’s it for this week. Join us on Monday for the usual morning ruckus.
