Put Your Hands Up! #TBT

I know I know 40 years ago today Star Wars came out but how many of you remember 31 years ago today when we all went outside for 15 minutes and held hands creating a human chain across America? Wait what you do not remember Hands Across America??

Hands Across America was a national event that benefited the USA for hunger and local homeless charities. At 3 PM Eastern time on May 25, 1986—30 years ago today—6.5 million people held hands in a (sort of) continuous line from coast to coast.

An estimated 7 million Americans participated in “Hands Across America” to raise money for the nation’s hungry and homeless at $10 bucks a pop just to say you were part of History. Thanks to my grandma I was part of that history! We closed down a major highway in town to join hands but I also remember how it was not one long line. I mean come on we live in the middle of farm country that is a lot of open roads.

Yet somehow we did make history it has been reported that the longest unbroken section of th…

WOW! Chris Cornell

Music bid farewell to one of its most distinctive voices this week, with the tragic news on the passing of Chris Cornell.

Cornell had been on tour when he died Wednesday night at 52, emblematic  of his prolific career with Soundgarden, Audioslave, Temple of the Dog and on his solo work. Although I was not the biggest fan of the grunge era that Cornell and Soundgarden helped define, his death is a painful loss.

Hunger Strike from the sole album release from Cornell's short-lived band Temple of the Dog contained a duet with a fellow grunge icon, Pearl Jam's Vedder. Its sad to think Vedder is the last of the Seattle grunge scene front men. I love this song and it is by far my favorite of the era.

May you find peace Chris!

On this Day in History

On this day 1986 Run-DMC burst onto MTV with a new sound that even this hard core rock guy was into! If it was not for these guys I may have never listened to any kind of rap in the 80's you know before rap got ugly!

The hip-hop group releases its third album, which includes a collaboration with Aerosmith on a new version of the band's hit 'Walk This Way.' 'Raising Hell' will expand rap's popularity to MTV and a broader audience, selling more than 3 million copies

But for me one of my all time fav's from Run DMC has to be Mary Mary!

Director: J.F. Lawton

Writer: J.F. Lawton

To avoid a serious avocado shortage, the U.S. government hires feminist anthropology professor Margo Hunt (Tweed) to find the man-eating Piranha Women tribe who inhabit the avocado jungle of Southern California.

Assisted by chauvinist Jim (Maher) and a dimwitted student named Bunny, Hunt must convince the tribe to move to Malibu condos while simultaneously fending off her rival Dr. Kurtz (Barbeau). Meanwhile, Bunny's contemplating joining the Piranha gals...but she must consume Jim first.

J.F. Lawton and best bud Bill Maher spin a welled balanced story about feminism that is widely under-appreciated. Bunny: "I've been thinking about changing my major from Home Economics to Feminist Studies, but I wasn't sure if you had any feminist cooking classes."
