Huh? You don't know what T.U.I is? Well it's quite simple actually. T.U.I. is "Tweeting Under the Influence". And yes it is a serious problem. Oh, you've done it - you just haven't been caught ------yet.
While I am strongly opposed to Government controls, some of us (yes me) need to be managed.
Just like if you get a DUI - some states require that you install a device that measures your Blood Alcohol content before your engine will engage. Perhaps the same logic/restrictions should be levied on our personal computers. You know to prevent us from hitting the "send" button with total disregard for the consequences of our actions.
Had I been saddled with that requirement, the April Fools debacle from last week would not have occurred. Now, I'm not blaming it ALL on alcohol - there is a certain level of stupidity that I clearly own.
It's not like I set out to do something stupid. It clearly seemed like a good idea "at the time". None of us intentionally do stupid things, do we?
So there I was....relaxing on Thursday the 29th. Yep, had a few Southern Comforts and thought. "...hmmm - maybe I will pretend that this Ssssunday's sssshow (slurred even in my mind) would be the last. That would be an awssssome April fools prank" Let me text that now.
PC on? - Roger
Twitter open? - Roger
Type message - Roger
Hit send - D'oh!
Now if my PC had a breathalyzer installed - preventing me from texting. All would have been ok. None of this would have transpired.
Of course if you are not buying this....I can always blame Al Gore for inventing the internet
THANK YOU...thank you so much:
I am humbled and "Driven to Tears" with the overwhelming response to the support of Resurrection Sunday. I had no idea how much the show was appreciated. I enter the studio every Sunday morning as a regular guy, enjoying what I do and hope to make a connection with whoever had the time to listen. I love what I do...and appreciate the trust that Jack Daniel, 106.5 and Clear Channel has intrusted in me. But, I never ever would have guessed the amount of support I had from the END's and Resurrection Sunday listeners. Again, I am humbled and honored to be a part of your Sunday mornings and hope to be so for a very long time.
It may have been a cruel April Fools prank... I had no idea I mattered that much. #humble #honesty.
Thank you, for allowing me into your hearts...your homes and your heads & let's never ever forget the tragic event of September 11 - 2001 - with the wave of the wand the Wiz is HERE on the END.
With much, much Love and appreciation - Wizard
Ok, this is going to be our secret. This is inside information for Res. Sunday listeners - I will PERSONALLY help you get rid of the in-laws this Sunday.
Yeah, it was great seeing them. FOR THE FIRST SIX HOURS! By Sunday the only thing you'll have too much of more than TURKEY is THEM. The 'rents-in-law. I mean, c'mon how freakin' funny can Matlock and Golden Girls be after they've seen it for the 40th time. They come down from Philly, Jersey, New Yawk, where-ever - and they keep saying. Charlotte, not like home is it? Not like home. Yeah, no crap - not like home. Back home we have major pollution, traffic up the wazoo and uh, YOU! No, not like home and I am freakin' thrilled be rid of youse guys (ya'll).
Ok...here is the deal. The earlier they leave on Sunday the better. Beginning at 9:00AM I will start giving FAKE traffic reports. Something along the lines of....
"We've been advised by the State Authorities that there are MAJOR - MAJOR traffic delays on Highway 77, 85 and 95 Northbound beginning at 1:00PM today. If you are heading north - you are advise to leave immediately if not sooner"
Federal authorities indicate that if you are still in the Charlotte area at noon - it may take up to 24 hours to reach the Philadelphia area."
Ok, now there will be some that won't know this is an inside job, but screw them for not reading becoming a "unique".
Good luck, and Happy Thanksgiving.
I’m quite sure by now most folks are tired of hearing about, and have formed their own opinions about JoePa and Penn State.
Let me preface this by stating that I am a HUGE sports fan. Most of my weekends, and quite honestly family vacations are built around the Sports calendar. I am the guy who would actually not go to your wedding if you were stupid enough to book it during the NFL playoffs.
I get how important the sports entertainment world is and the great escape it offers.
Is it me or do most of the folks at Penn State have it wrong. Joe Pa, in his pre-mature “I’ll resign at the end of the season” speech and the talking heads at PSU all talk briefly about the victims, the “tragedy” and then pontificate on how their mission now is to restore the integrity that once was “PENN STATE” –
Joe, et al – what about the victims? True, this is a LOSS for PSU – but it is a loss YOU COULD HAVE PREVENTED – This is a SELF INFLICTED wound. Your “reputation” is tarnished. BOO FA-KING HOO!
Did if ever occur to you to make the VICTIMS your immediate priority?? DID it??? The Paterno Mafia ruin the lives of at least 8 young men and their families…YOU SELFISH SCUMBAGS.
Ok…maybe you won’t get it…but there IS a chance that if you actually focus on the VICTIMS – did it occur to you that this could be the FIRST step in restoring the PSU pride?????
What’s your opinion?
Well I bill myself and the show as “songs that Don’t suck from the 80’s”. Every now and then people ask – “Wiz what songs DO suck?
When I answer questions like that I run the risk of alienating some listeners – but let me take a stab at it with the usual disclaimer lead-in…
No offense (which means someone will find this offensive) but here are some songs I think suck from the 80’s – in no particular order:
Starship – “We Built This City” - Having an appreciation for the Woodstock generation – it was sad to see the Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship/Starship sink to this level. The band who was a head-liner at Max Yazgur’s farm was now doing lip-syncing on American Bandstand.
Beach Men “Kokomo” – Yes, the Beach MEN! The stopped being “boys” when they turned 70! Grow up guys. I DID enjoy the movie “Cocktail” and I will admit that when I played the song on Jersey radio (94.3 WJLK-FM) I tapped my feet. But this Kokomo thing was a far cry from Good Vibrations.
Glenn Frey of the Eagles’ “The Heat is On” was acceptable for two reasons. 1) He actually sounded like Glenn Frey and 2) the video had that hot chick playing the sax. I am still trying to find her….. “Smugglers Blues” and “You belong to the City” I could’ve done without.
Vanilla Ice, Don Johnson, Milli Vanilli, Bruce Willis, WHAM, Spandau Ballet, : Let me know if you need me to opine.
There are hundreds of others…but enough about me…Tell me YOUR worst songs of the 80’s email@example.com
