What does Kitty have to say?


 


Dry Cleaner Wars

Have you seen the A&E show Storage Wars? It's a lot like Pawn Stars and American Pickers, except in this case, treasure hunting entrepreneurs bid on the contents of abandoned storage lockers, without knowing what's in them. Sometimes they find something cool, but mostly it's a lot of crap...old shoes, sporting equipment, hangers. But sometimes it's pay dirt...antiques, vintage guitars, or baseball cards. Now all those shows like that have several things in common: ridicule, drama, and surprise. I have an idea for a new show that I think will be a huge hit. It has all of those elements...and more. DRY CLEANER WARS! First off, this show will offer the viewer a chance to ridicule and feel better than the person on the show. VEWER: "They're paying money to get THAT cleaned? That is the most hideous dress I've ever seen....He spilled yellow mustard on that shirt!  Any discriminating person knows the only appropriate condiment is grey poupon." The element of drama could be demonstrated in several ways. For example, this scenario: CUSTOMER: "Look at this nasty wine stain on my grandma's wedding dress. Can you get it out?" DRY CLEANER: "Ooh, that looks like it's really set in there. I don't know if there's anything we can do with that..." CUSTOMER: "Oh, you've got to help me...I'm desperate." ANNOUNCER: "Will that wine stain come out? Will Rebecca be able to face her family ever again? Find out, right after this." You can feel the tension, I know you can. But what about surprise? How can we be surprised at the dry cleaner? That's easy..all we have to do is dump out the pockets.  "Eww, what the heck is that? I've never seen anything like it!  What is it? We'll tell you, right after this." And once this show takes off, which I'm sure it will, I've already got a spin-off idea. CELEBRITY DRY CLEANER WARS.

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

Finally, recognition of Stevie Ray Vaughan by the Rock Hall
The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan. The Rock Hall has passed Stevie by for the more than ten years that he's been eligible, causing me and other blues fans much...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...

In honor of National Punctuation Day
Today is National Punctuation Day! It's a day to geek out about exclamation points, semi-colons, ampersands and commas. It's also a day to go back into the Radio Way-Back Machine, and listen to this song by Dan Baird. It was a minor hit in...
