Random Things I’d Like To See In Our Parking Lot, Like Baby Deer
I've been working at Hot 104.7 now for just over ten years. This morning after the show I got up to my office and saw something I have never seen before. I looked out the window and saw two deer, fawns, walking along the curb on the south end of our parking lot. I've seen deer crossing 57th Street by the slough that is behind our building early in the morning or late at night, but never at 10:10am in broad daylight. It was just random and fun to see.
There are other random things I'd like to see in our parking lot at random.
I'd Like To See Joe Perry's Tour Bus
One of the first bands I got into was Aerosmith. Pump was the first rock album (cassette) I ever bought at the age of 12. "Love In An Elevator" and "Janie's Got A Gun" were on MTV constantly in 1989 and 1990. Aerosmith's guitar god Joe Perry was so effing cool I had to learn how to play the guitar. He's on of my favorite guitarists.
On August 9, 2009, Joe Perry visited our sister station, B102.7 and went on the air with Crash that afternoon. He was on his way back to Boston from Sturgis after Steven Tyler fell off the stage at the Buffalo Chip. Joe stopped to take pictures with other employees who came by and spent about an hour hanging out. But no one bothered to tell me that he was in our building - until after he was gone. I missed the chance to meet my guitar hero, all because I moved to the morning show a four months earlier.
I'd Like To See January Jones Give South Dakota The Finger
For some reason whenever January Jones comes up, especially since her appearance on the Daily Show in 2011, people rip her like she's some kind of evil person. We even got texts about her a couple of weeks ago when she came up. People were mad and I don't understand it. Jon Stewart was being Jon Stewart in joking about South Dakota and would be very tough for anyone to keep up with in an interview. She tried to joke about it with him and it rubbed some people the wrong way. I thought it was fine, not to mention entertaining and amusing.
People, stop being so sensitive and get over it! I seriously doubt she intended any disrespect to our state. But since people are overly sensitive about little things, I would like to see her give everyone a real reason to dislike her and watch her stand out in our parking lot and give the 605 the finger. Random and weird, I know.
I'd Like To See Mike Huether In a Fist Fight With Tom Cruise
I don't know why I'd like to see this but I'd like to. Put up an octagon and watch them go at it. It'd be fun!
