Kelly Kulick Makes History As The First Lady EVER To Win The PBA (Bowling) Tour

As a PBA member and as someone who grew up bowling, it is a treat to see Kelly Kulick become the first female winner on the PBA Tour.

Kelly actually outscored a male bowler 265-195 to take home the $40,000 first prize and a two-year PBA Tour exemption. A right hander, the 32-year-old earned a berth in the Tournament of Champions by winning the PBA Women’s World Championship last September.

To date, all I have received from the PBA was a “200 Bowler” magnet. haha…
In honor of her accomplishment, I am going to bowl a 220 today! At least I am going to try.

Pronouncing The Year 2010: ‘Twenty Ten’ vs. ‘Two Thousand Ten’

There seems to be an ongoing debut among experts about how to pronouce the year 2010. It is assummed coming off of two “thousand nine,” that people will probably say “two thousand ten.” However, the National Association of Good Grammar (NAGG) has decided to step in and let the masses know that 2010 should officially be pronounced “twenty ten” and all subsequent years should be pronounced as “twenty eleven,” “twenty twelve,” etc. Contray to NAGG, David Crystal, author of the Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language has predicted that the change of pronunciation to “twenty X” will not occur until 2011. He believes in 2011 people will say “twenty eleven,” because the way people pronounce years depends on rhythm, rather than logic. He also claims that the rhythm or “flow” of “two thousand and ten,” beats that of “twenty ten,” but the flow of “twenty eleven” beats “two thousand and eleven.”

Dubai Inc. $80 Billion In The Red, Request Debt “Standstill”

I came across this story a few days ago and prior to the widely reported news reports. I meant to post it, but got so busy I forgot. Now I see that the main stream media has picked it up. I found the story of interest because last week when I was in Las Vegas I was talking to a few friends that are prioperty owners regarding their concerns on the completion of Center Center, which is a new development on the Las Vegas strip. apparently, because of the lack of financing, there have been many delays with the completion of this multi-million dollar complex. The lack of financing is all tied in with Dubai. For more on how Dubai’s money woes affect Las Vegas, read the full story here.

Oregon States LeGarrett Blount Suspension


I was wondering how this would play out and after watching the press conference on ESPN, I must say that I am somewhat pleased with the outcome. I definitely was in favor of him being suspended, especially since this is his second incident. Regardless, I am extremely pleased at how the head coach handled himself and the words he shared during the press conference.

I like the fact that instead of throwing this young man under the bus after he clearly made a mistake, the coach and college rallied behind him and collectively decided to help and counsel this young man for his action. What really was impressive was when Coach Chip Kelly said “Blount will remain on scholarship.” Unlike with the Michael Vick and Chris Brown situation, I think LeGarrett Blount’s punishment was suitable… I am not condoning domestic violence or animal cruelty, but I disagreed with the punishment given to both Chris and Vick.

For those that don’t know, Blount punched Boise State’s Byron Hout in the face after Oregon lost the game. Then, Blount put a fist to the helmet of Ducks’ teammate Garrett Embry, who was trying to play peacemaker. He then left the field struggling with two police officers and two stadium security guards with Ducks assistant Scott Frost being caught up in the chaos. Blount also had a hostile brush with a Boise State fan.

DJ AM Thought He Was “Destined to Be a Drug Addict” – 2008 US Magazine Article – Eerie!

DJ AM quotes from a 2008 US Magazine article:

<“At any given moment, I’m five seconds away from walking up to someone, grabbing their drink out of their hand and downing it,” he adds.

“And if I do that, within a week, tops, I’ll be smoking crack. So even though I have this crazy fabulous life, I have to hold on to the ground, gripping the grass with both hands.”

Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein Found Dead – RIP

wmc_2008 038

I have not posted in a while, but as soon as I heard the news I felt compelled to write something. I admit I have stated many times that I was a self-proclaimed DJ AM GROUPIE! I have seen AM on more than a few occasions DJing. I have seen him at his best and on days when I thought he was lack-luster, but I always remained a big fan. My memories are very vivid of seeing him spin in cities such as Las Vegas, Miami, and Los Angeles. People would always ask me why was DJ AM in my top 3 DJ’s and I would simple say until you have witnessed his A game you have no idea.

As the story develops I will continue to update this post. TMZ is reporting that drug paraphernalia was found at the scene and that he had been dead for a possibly a couple of days. As you may be aware, AM was shooting his MTV show on Rehab and in fact had spent some time recovering from drugs, so I hope this is not true. Also, a little know fact is that AM actually had Gastric Bypass surgery after gaining a tremendous amount of weight. For me, I am in disbelief that a guy can survive all the things he has including a plane crash and end up dead in his prime. Such a waste!

Some of my past posts about DJ AM: DJed At LAX Nightclub With DJ AM, A-Trak, and Steve Aoki!

DJ AM and legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff – VIDEO

RT @deejayspider RIP DJ AM – You were a huge inspiration to me & part of the reason I do what I do today <- I remember the Rockstar contest

I have so many DJ AM memories… I can go on and on city to city… but I will leave it at RIP DJ AM!

DJ AM memory: remember I was in Vegas w/ @IamLaurin & they wanted to go to some club, but I had to go see DJ AM at PURE. I danced ALL NIGHT!

DJ AM memory: remember dancing ALL night w/ @AtLargeDJs (Michelle) at WMC 2007 @ Cameo watchin AM @djirie (he KILLED IT) & @steveaoki

DJ AM memory: remember dancing ALL night w/ @AtLargeDJs (Michelle) at WMC 2008 watchin AM w/ @djjazzyjeff215 & @steveaoki

My DJ AM memories… I remember I lost my new red blackberry at LAX the night I went to see him @atrak @steveaoki @iamtherealwill

@MsEthnicity they are saying drug paraphernalia was found at the scene. sadly he was filming an MTV show about Rehab!

VERY upset about the DJ AM news…. it's a waste!

This is @DJ_AM last tweet “New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems.”

Note: The picture above is from Winter Music Conference 2008. I had the please of seeing him

Is Lady GaGa a Hermaphrodite (Man)?


Rumors have been going around that Lady GaGa is really a man. Recently, video has surfaced showing something that appears to be a “man” part near Lady GaGa’s female parts. Supposedly, Lady GaGa finally came out and “alledgedly” confirmed the rumors with the following statement:

Its not something that I’m ashamed of, just isn’t something that i go around telling everyone. Yes. I have both male and female genitalia, but i consider myself a female. Its just a little bit of a penis and really doesn’t interfere much with my life. the reason I haven’t talked about it is that its not a big deal to me. like come on. its not like we all go around talking about our vags. I think this is a great opportunity to make other multiple gendered people feel more comfortable with their bodies. I’m sexy, I’m hot. i have both a poon and a peener. big f*cking deal.
