  • The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien

    Posted by Otis Day

    I'm With Coco!

    Wow.  It seems like only a few months ago Conan O'Brien took over the reigns of the late night franchise that is(was) The Tonight Show.  Things were different back then.  The Earth was warmer.   Brett Favre was retired.  I was bald.  Tonight it all ends.  NBC has screwed it all up and is bringing Jay Leno back to the Tonight Show.  It's strange, because I remember Jay retiring.  THEN he took a different show at a different time(like Grandpa retires and goes to work part time at Wal-mart.)   That show didn't work the way NBC wanted it to(to be fair, they've only given it .4th of a year) so they canceled the Jay Leno show.  What I don't get is if he retired....why is he going back to the Tonight Show?  If Grandpa's job at Wal-mart didn't work...he's not gonna go back to his old job again.  He's gonna either find another part time job....or actually retire.  GETTING THE JOB YOU RETIRED FROM BACK AFTER YOU RETIRED IS NOT A FREAKING OPTION!!!!!!(unless you worked for NBC and you're Jay Leno) 

    So Goodbye Conan.  We'll miss you!  Have a great final night as host of The Tonight Show.  See you on Fox!

    My favorite late night host is Craig Ferguson.

    Lawrence University Hosts “Concert for Haiti”

    Fox 11 WLUK, Red Cross and Wisconsin Musicians Join Fund-raising Effort

    APPLETON, WIS. — The Lawrence University Memorial Chapel will be the backdrop for a special “Concert for Haiti” Tonight, Wednesday, January 20, at 7 p.m. The concert is the inspiration of Lawrence student Carolyn Armstrong ’10 and Lawrence Professor of Cello Janet Anthony, who last month traveled to Haiti to teach music. The Holy Trinity Music School in Port-au-Prince, where many of the lessons took place, was destroyed in the earthquake January 12 that killed an estimated 200,000 Haitians and left many more injured and homeless.

     

    The “Concert for Haiti” will feature performances by Lawrence students and faculty, Bob Levy and John Harmon, Jeremiah Nelson, world-renowned improvisational cellist Matt Turner and others.  A collection will be taken to benefit Holy Trinity Music School.  In addition, donations can be given to the American Red Cross Haitian Relief efforts.  Haitian music and music composed at Holy Trinity Music School will be performed.  Tickets are not required.

     

    On Thursday, January 21, at 9:30 p.m., Fox 11 WLUK will broadcast the concert highlights, sharing the message and music with viewers across Northeast Wisconsin.  “We are grateful for the opportunity to take this message to a larger audience,” Anthony said.  “More than 40 Lawrence students have visited Haiti in the last 15 years, many of them working with music students at Holy Trinity.  We care deeply about their welfare and we look forward to, when the time is right, bringing music education back to Haiti.” 

     

    Holy Trinity Music School, Port-au-Prince

    Holy Trinity Church was founded in 1863 by the Episcopal Church and, as part of the church’s mission, several primary schools were established.  Holy Trinity Music School began in 1970. Now serving over 1200 students, there are five orchestras, including Haiti’s only philharmonic orchestra, a boy choir, and three symphonic bands. Instruction is offered in all instrumental and vocal areas.  The Holy Trinity Philharmonic Orchestra and the Petit Chanteurs have a very active performance schedule across Haiti.  The Petits Chanteurs and a small instrumental ensemble have toured the United States five times in the past seven years to great acclaim.

  • Tiger Woods at Sex Addiction Clinic

    From the Vancouver Sun:

    VANCOUVER — After nearly two months of mostly-false speculation on his whereabouts, Tiger Woods' location has finally been confirmed, if you believe the photograph in the new issue of the National Enquirer.

    The world's top golfer, who went into hiding after news of his marital infidelity became public in late November, has been photographed leaving a sex rehab clinic in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

    And Hollywoodlife.com is reporting that a source inside the "prison-like facility," the Pine Grove Behavioral Health & Addiction Services Center, has revealed exclusive details about Woods' treatment for sex addiction.

    The clinic features a sexual addiction program created by Dr. Patrick Carnes, who has pioneered treatment for sexually compulsive behavior, according to radaronline.com, which says multiple sources have confirmed Woods' treatment at the facility.

    According to Hollywoodlife.com, "The Gentle Path center, surrounded by a fence which is locked at night and described by an inside source as a 'concrete prison,' is a no-frills far cry from Tiger’s usual luxury surroundings. Gentle Path is specifically for sex addiction patients and is about four miles from the main campus. Tiger’s daily routine will consist of group therapy sessions, doctor evaluations, and psychological analysis."

    The typical length of a sex addict’s stay in rehab is approximately six weeks, the celebrity website reported. There are between 18-24 individuals enrolled in Gentle Path at any given time, and they attend Sex Addicts Anonymous meetings twice a week. They also have free supervised time get to go to Wal-Mart twice a week, the report says.

    "Upon entering the facility one must sign a celibacy contracting banning them from sexual encounters with other individuals including masturbation.

    "Our source says, 'Patients live in a refurbished motel once called the Alamo. There is a big fence around it … it sort of resembles a prison.' The huge fence is locked at night so if someone wanted to leave, our source says, 'they would have to climb the fence.'"

    Woods has not been seen in public since crashing his vehicle into a tree shortly after Thanksgiving. In the following weeks, reports emerged that he had had affairs with as many as 14 women.

    In the Enquirer photograph of Woods at the sex rehab clinic, he is wearing a hoodie and a baseball cap and his face his hard to see.

    Reports say he checked into a six-week program at Pine Grove on Dec. 30.

    The Enquirer report says Elin Nordegren threatened to take their children Sam Alexis, 2, and Charlie Axel, 11 months, to Sweden unless he “vowed to stop cheating and enter sex rehab.”

     

    Hollywoodlife.com has broken out what a typical day for Tiger Woods may look like:

    6:30 a.m.: Wake Up Call - Either a knock on his door or announcement over the intercom.

    7 a.m.: Breakfast - A Pine Grove staff member must accompany him while he eats.

    8 - 11 a.m.: “Recovery Activities” - Patients are given this time to work on one of 15 different addict recovery activities. Some include: Shame reduction work, yoga, eye movement desensitization, and spirituality group.

    11 a.m. - 1 pm: Lunch - Again, he must be accompanied by a staff member, and can have his choice of “buffet style” chicken or ham and five veggies.

    1 - 4 p.m.: Continue to work on “Recovery Activities.”

    4 - 10 p.m.: Patients may attend hall-style lectures, group meetings, religious/spiritual activities or meet with their doctors.

    10:30 p.m.: Lights Out.

    Conan Obrien "I'm With Coco" logo

    I'm a David Letterman fan.  Always have been.  His sense of humor is more up my alley.  I enjoy most of the late night shows....Letterman's just always been my favorite.  I used to stay up late and watch him on NBC years ago(My mom thought I was sleeping...but I was laughing at stupid Human Tricks, Larry "Bud" Melman, and how rude Dave used to be to stupid guest...before he tamed down and started wearing nice suits.)  But in the Leno/Conan debate.....I'm with Coco!  Jay has never been funny to me.  He's just a moderate comedian.  Middle of the road and kinda boring.  Plus....he said he was retiring.  So coming back because his 'out of retirement' gig didn't work out is kinda mean to the hundreds of employee's of the Tonight Show.  And the millions of viewers.  Join the revolution on facebook.

  • Merry January to all!

    Average Joe, Katie, Otis Day after 2010 Christmas Party

    Average Joe, Katie and I after our 2009 Christmas party(which we had in 2010, last Friday night).  It's rare that Joe doesn't make a silly face in pictures, and exceptionally rare that I don't have my mouth full open in my 'picture face' i seem to use.  I really like this picture.

    Well, she has the number one album in America...and has broken the record for the most downloads by a female artist...but she still can't resist a good deal.  And there's no better deal than stealing from the goodwill bins!
