Morning After with Skippy

 


How Many Times Do I Have To Tell You?!



When one Pennsylvania college student forgot to take out the trash on a recent visit home, his mom mailed it to him in a care package with a friendly reminder to not let it happen again.


How do you handle chores in your home? How was it in your childhood home? In my house as a kid, responsibilities included keeping our rooms clean and doing our own laundry. Basically just clean up after yourself and take care of your animals.


As a parent, I'm trying to teach my kids age appropriate responsibilities (ex. dishes in the sink, keep your room clean, clean up the bathroom counter that you inevitably make a mess every single time you brush your teeth or wash your hands) but sometimes it's just easier to do it myself. Knowing that, I'll struggle through my child doing a terrible job at moping because 1) I hate doing it and 2) I know they've got to learn.


So back to the article about the mom and the garbage... I'm going to file this under "mom goals." Click here for the full story.

Backstage with Twenty One Pilots


Ten months of waiting and the "Emotional Roadshow Tour" with Twenty One Pilots in Fresno last night was worth all of the buildup. This was my first time seeing them and I've been a fan for several years but after last night, it is absolutely clear they've earned all of the acclaim showered on them, especially as of late.

It was especially awesome because for the first time ever, I got to take my kids to a show that both they and I really were looking foward to seeing (you see, their taste in music is often questionable despite their parents' best efforts). From seeing Judah & the Lion do an acoustic set, to the meet n greet with TOP (which was surprise) to this interview you are about to see, AND that was all BEFORE the stellar show-- It was a great night to be a fan in Fresno.

So here's the video of my impromptu interview with Tyler and Josh, who could not have been more welcoming and real. They are also obviously very appreciative of their fans and still impacted by the fact that their music helps people get better. Filing this one under "Career Highlights" for sure. Also, I'm aware my Resting Bitch Face is of epic proportions. Trying to not fan girl out on them combined with zero prep made for a fun experience.

Move Your Ass Over Rose. I'm Dying Here.



Nearly 20 years later, the debate rages on as to whether Jack could have fit on the wreckage and saved himself too, along with Rose, in "Titanic."  In short, the director James Cameron is saying no.  Actually, he said the guys in "Mythbusters" were "full of sh**."  Click here for the article.


That aside, with Valentine's Day officially 2 weeks away, I want to know--what's the greatest love story told on screen?  It's not lost on me that the story of "Titanic" is often referenced and involves someone dying.  Just sayin.


Weigh in here or at 559-228-1041 and you could win tickets to check out The 1975 in SF in April courtesy of the Table Mountain Casino Prize Window.

Where in the World are the Hot People?



I think it's a little ridiculous that we still have things like beauty pageants but that aside, the Miss Universe Contest was held over the weekend and Miss France was named the winner.  These are very beautiful and talented women, no doubt about that.


So in a time where I think we need to lighten the mood and appreciate the diversity that this world brings us, let's level the playing field and get right to it--Fill in the blank-- "The hottest men/women are from ______."


Weigh in here or at 559-228-1041 for a chance to win courtesy of the Table Mountain Casino Prize Window.  What you ask?  Well since the topic is lowkey creepy, how about tickets to see that band that had the creepiest song of 2016, "Somebody Else"?  The 1975.


And if you're interested in coverage on Miss Universe, click here.

It's Not a Super Bowl Party Without (Your Answer Here)


Since I won't be here to discuss the Super Bowl next week, time to "tackle" some football stuff today. Who is going to win? And more importantly- what will you be eating?


Since we proved last week that I'm no longer "The Cooler" (having picked the Patriots to win just because a friend begged me NOT TO because of my track history of causing teams to lose), I'm going to say Atlanta to win just because I like a good upset. And sometimes, Tom Brady is too pretty.  


As for food, I will be watching the game (if it's on) from whatever bar I can find in Iceland that will be showing it. I'm told the food there is not good, so I'll be living vicariously through you. Looking for the most popular recipes for Super Bowl parties based on the state?  Click here. Today, I'm proud to be from California because our most searched item... CUPCAKES!


I want to know what you think. Hit me up on social media or give me a call at 559-228-1041.

The Great Debate- Chunky or Creamy?



Finally, some good news in the news! It's National Peanut Butter Day! I'm a fan in more than name alone.  Oh and in case you haven't heard the story, the only reason my name is Skippy is because I wore a shirt with the logo on it to work one day when I was an intern at my old station and it said "Skippy- Spread the fun."  Skippy sounded only less lame than my birth name for rock radio so it, pardon the pun, stuck.  It was too late to change it by the time the big boss noticed I was on the air a lot.


So having had that nickname for 15+ years, it's been the topic of discussion on more than one occasion.  "Do you actually buy Skippy Peanut Butter?"- Yes. It comes in 2 packs at Costco.  "So are you chunky or creamy?"- Um, no. Don't ask that. How do you even answer that?


But I'll ask you now-- Creamy or chunky?  What do you like?  In actual peanut butter.  Not Djs.  Hit me up at 559-228-1041 and we can keep a tally.  If I don't agree, I'll name my choice the winner and just call it "Alternate Facts."
