‘Mystery Science Theater 3000′ Gang to Riff ‘Sharknado’ Live [Video]

One of my favorite shows is "Mystery Science Theater 3000."

Sadly, it’s no longer with us.

The last episode that aired in syndication was over 10 year ago, but you can still find episodes online and on Netflix!

Fortunately, the guys from "Mystery Science Theater 3000" (or "MST 3K," as we fans call it) have continued to crack jokes and riff movies in some form since the show ended.

Stella’s Lounge Celebrates Fourth Anniversary [Video]

I love whiskey. Therefore, I love Stella’s Lounge.

Stella’s isn’t your average bar.

Not only does Stella’s have 200 different types of whiskey, but it also has classic arcade games (Galaga is MY game!), a jukebox filled with music from the Smiths to Genesis, and an awesome bar top filled with real ticket stubs from killer concerts like Iggy and The Stooges, Elvis Costello and Talking Heads.

It’s Kentucky Derby Day!

Today is the 463rd running of the Kentucky Derby! The Derby has a bit more importance to me, as I lived a year in Louisville, so I got to experience it first hand. The actual Derby is a culmination of a two-week long party, called smartly "The Kentucky Derby Festival" From the world's largest fireworks display (Thunder over Louisville) to endless celebrity parties and about 20 races, the Festival takes over the city. Think of Artprize, with horse racing. And drinking.

Capt. Richard Phillips Visits Grand Rapids for Davenport Gala [Video]

Capt. Richard Phillips is in Grand Rapids today.

Phillips was captain of the MV Maersk Alabama during its hijacking by Somali pirates in April 2009; and his heroics were chronicled in the Oscar-nominated 2013 film "Captain Phillips" starring Tom Hanks.

Tonight, he is the keynote speaker for Davenport University's Excellence in Business Dinner Gala, a black-tie fund-raiser for Davenport University Foundation student scholarship funds, at DeVos Place.

This morning, he spent time with me on 100.5 The River. I was filling in for Andy Rent on the "Andy Rent Show" along with guest host Tim Harris. Andy is currently on vacation in Hawaii, where he's on a group tour with YMT Vacations and listeners of 100.5 The River.

I Was Wrong About Earth Day

I think the true test of a person's character is if they can admit they are wrong about something.

The phrase "won't be the first time, certainly won't be the last time" is used a lot in my vocabulary.

I can admit I'm wrong a lot, since it happens daily!
