Does Jack White Like Baseball...That Face! Corey O'Brien |

Does Jack White Like Baseball...That Face!

How much does Jack White love baseball? Well, he either hates how the Cubs are playing or hates the red hots or hates baseball or hates his seat or hates having his picture taken without a suit on. It's Jack White and grumpy Jack is good Jack. F*@k Grumpy Cat!

Take, Take, Take (a little White Stripes humor) at these pictures from Music Times and you decide.

And here's some vid...real good vid if you know what I mean.

Your browser does not support iframes.

Since you are here you might as well rock out to some old school White Stripes.

Todd Nuke 'Em Reviews Mr. Mercedes

Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King Reviewed by Todd Nuke ‘Em

The master of horror is back with a new novel that surprisingly lacks horror. Not that this is a bad thing. King most recently did this with Joyland, where there was a ghost story lurking in the background of what was a great little murder mystery. In Mr. Mercedes, it is indeed another crime thriller, except you know right from the first few pages who committed the crime. This is a story about a retired detective and two unlikely associates who track down the bad guy before he can commit another mass murder. His first mass murder takes place in the first chapter, when the bad guy drives through a crowd of people waiting in line for a job fair.

I like it when Stephen King steps away from the horror genre and tries something different. There are no supernatural monsters in this story, but there is a real one, and King takes you right into the killer’s warped mind. I loved the story of pursuit as the retired detective broke a lot of the rules of protocol when tracking down this killer. There are some excellent psychological exchanges between the killer and the detective that will keep you wondering if the good guys will actually win. This book is also not incredibly long—sometimes King can crank out eight hundred pages or more, but this one is rather brief. The action keeps it moving along until the exciting conclusion.

I give it a B+.

Stephen King recently announced that there are two more books coming that involve these characters, so be ready for a sequel. 

In case you missed it, here is a list of my Top 5 Summer Books from the beginning of summer.

Video: Neon Tree's Tyler Glenn Gets Personal

Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees sat down on a Channel 2's "Person 2 Person" with Shauna Lake in two parts to talk about Neon Tree's roots, why he doesn't have a driver's licence, coming out in Utah and the new album, "Pop Psychology."

If anything watch to see news anchors say, "Sleeping with a Friend." Then think of all the uncomfortable things you would like to watch news anchors say.

Also, I have no idea why one is big and one is small. I failed programmer's school.

 

If you want to see Bill Allred's "Person 2 Person" you can watch it here.
