Hey Couch,

Just stopping by for an update (in what is probably a vain attempt to keep things rolling here..)

I have aquired the rights to the domain and as soon as I can figure out the hosting and site design I'll be moving things on over there. As always, any ideas, suggestions, or snide comments must be printed in 10 pt Verdana on a yellow 3x5 card and mailed to Mans Couch, C/O Luke Skywalker, PO BOX 11, Culver City, CA 9090901. Seriously, if you have ideas or suggestions I'd love to hear them.

Caught up with the Fargo's this weekend. Always good to see the 3 of them!!!

What are you guys up to?

Racism? or just Great Marketing

Gentlemen of the Couch-

May I present you a little treat from my state? This is why we fought the Civil people can buy furniture regardless of the color of their skin....even those Hix-panics.

Hip Hop Makes You Dummer

I hope you're sitting down (of course you are, you're at a computer, unless you're reading this on your iphone blackberry thingy, then I guess you could be standing, but..well forget it...)

After 9 years, 10 months, 2 weeks, and 1 day I no longer work for U92. I know, I know... what will happen to the hip Hop scene in Salt Lake City? Frankly, I don't care. Hip Hop makes you dummer.

When I started as part-time on-air on Saturdays I didn't even pronounce the names of the artists correctly. As I packed up my belongings on Friday, I thought about some of the middle-aged white male business owners and thirty-something female media buyers who as recently as last week I was helping to assure that rap music was actually consumed by white suburban kids who beg their parents to let them listen to the station in the car on the way to school. Oh, and those fantastic 18-34's with all that expendable cash.

Thanks to U92 I had alot of experiences I never thought I would. One of them was listening to rap music (ha!). Others were meeting some of the biggest stars of all time (and telling them to shut up), Jello wrestling (in provo of all places), hosting school dances (well, i thought I might actually do that regardless), spending an entire saturday hoisted up in crane bucket in sub zero temperatures to raise turkeys for the food bank, and getting nearly 14,000 people to "make some noise" for a truck driving school. It baffles even me.

But, as I said, those days have come to an end. I'll tell you that I hate it nearly as much as I love it. And this is the kind of thing I thought you guys might want to know... you know, in case you were looking for tickets for Eminem's world tour this summer.

So Couch, what are you up to?

Great Ideas for your next family photo

Hi Boys-

I keep checking back to see if anyone has posted anything and then realized, "Hey, why don't you post something!" So here it is...

I am heading back to Elko in a few weeks for my sister's graduation from good ole' Elko High. We are also taking a family picture so one of my co-worker's sent me the following link to give me some ideas.

There really are no words for these....I wonder how many are Mormons?

Mr. T wants YOU to eat a Snickers

And who are you to argue?

It doesn't get much more Man's Couch than this, gang:

The Mother of All Funk Chords

Stumbled across this video today while searching for some cool mashups to add to the 'ol collection. This guy edited together bits and pieces of different people playing different songs to make one totally original piece. According to his site, it took him three months to make this, and I can understand why. It's pretty much the coolest thing I've seen in a long, long time.

Enjoy, won't you?
