Adam and Jeremy Say: Light's On

Swing on over to the 90.9 The Light Website. Sure it's an amature college radio station, but they still play a sweet mix of christian rock, Hip Hop and R&B. Most of you probably don't have a local station with that kind of line up.

Not only that, I'm sure you're getting tired of your Amy Grant and Mercy Me Christmas music from your local "Inspirational" station. For the next few days they will playing "Egg Nogg for the Ears" with all kinds of sweet Christmas Rock mixed in with everything else.

Oh, and if you don't like annoying college kids failing at their attempts to DJs, no worries. Everyone if on winter vacation, so you don't even have to put up with people yakking at you.

Adam and Jeremy Say: Lights Out!

The U.S.News & World Report says the incandescent light bulb, one of the most venerable inventions of its era but deemed too inefficient for our own good, will be phased off the U.S. market beginning in 2012 under the new energy law just approved by Congress.

Apologies to all those who have sentimental feelings towards the "Edison bulb", but it really does make sense to switch over to the fluorescent bulbs. Go ahead and do it now.

Adam and Jeremy say: Lost is nearly hear and on a new night!!! oh and we have a promo!!!

Season Four of Lost hits January 31st... which you may notice is a Thursday night... that's because ABC is moving Lost to the 9PM slot on Thursdays until the strike is over and Grey's Anatomy can refill its old digs... of course with only eight episodes in the can season for could be really short if these greedy Hollywood jerks don't get their acts together.

Adam and Jeremy Say: We Did It Again; I Am Legend No. 1!

We did it again... Will Smith and his gripping exciting sci-fi thriller I Am Legend soared to a best ever record December box office; raking in $76.5 Million! It must be said that about fifty million dollars of that was generated directly from Adam and Jeremy Buzz... don't thank us Will just send money.

Adam and Jeremy Say: GI Joe turns 25 and celbrates with oddly funny online game

We are not sure how we missed this, but G.I. Joe turned 25 years old this year! What great childhood memories... at any rate you can go to their website and play their online game that pits G.I. Joe action figures against Cobra action figures in a Family Feud battle to test your knowledge of G.I. Joe... We are not sure if they intended for the stop motion animation of action figures to be as funny as it is, but intentional or not it is guaranteed to crack a nostalgic smile on your face. GI JOE FAMILY FEUD

Adam and Jeremy Say:O the Orony

As you are all probably aware by now, Oprah has made claim that she is supporting Obama in the 2008 election. I won't go deep into my feelings for Oprah right now, but to sumarize you could say that I'm not a big fan. So, with that being said, you could say that my feeling towards Obama has also declined over the past couple days.

I do find it interesting that Oprah, with all her sheman power trips, is decidnig to support the black canidate over the female candidate. That must have been a hard decision for her. I did get a small chuckle when Good Morning America refered to her as the "most influential female in America".
On a far side note and off the subject, see the letter to Oprah below written by Orson Scott Card:
Dear Oprah:
You are a superb talkshow host. Millions of people watch you to get your level-headed take on all the problems of life. We admire you, we enjoy you, and we're even happy that you are the richest woman in the world. It couldn't happen to a nicer person.

I'm so terribly sorry that when you arrived fifteen minutes after closing time at the Paris Hermes store, they did not let you dash in and buy a watch for a friend.
I'm not even jealous of your friend -- I don't want the kind of watch Hermes sells, because then I'd always be worried about losing it or somebody stealing it. But I'm glad you're generous with your friends.

And it's so inconvenient when people close up their stores just when you finally have a moment to shop.

It happens to me all the time.

If they were rude to you at the door -- well, I remember when I was in Provence a few years ago. I commented to one of my French acquaintances -- in English, of course, since my French would make even schoolboys ashamed -- "I always heard how cold and rude French store clerks are, and yet everyone here has been kind and helpful and friendly."
"Ah," said the man, "you were thinking of Paris. They treat us that way, too."

Dear, dear Oprah, there are so many possible reasons why you were turned away from the door at Hermes.
1. The store clerk was Parisian. They train their clerks to be aloof and rude. The clerk would have been fired for treating you any other way. Where did you think you were, Des Moines?
2. You're American. Do you have any idea how happy it makes people these days to say no to an American?
3. You're very, very rich. Do you have any idea how happy it makes people to have a chance to force a rich person to realize they're no better than anyone else?
4. You're used to people saying yes to you just because you are who you are. But in Paris, they don't watch your show. So in Paris, you're not "Oprah," you're just another customer, and since all their customers are rich, they don't automatically understand that even when there are no exceptions, there must be an exception for you.
5. The store was closed! People who own stores have a right to close them, as long as they announce it in advance. You arrived after the announced closing time. Have you so lost touch with what it means to be a human being that you really expect everyone to let you break all the rules?
6. You are also black. And it's conceivable that maybe that particular Parisian store clerk didn't want you in the store fifteen minutes after closing because of some deep bigotry against Africans.
But the fact that you are black is way, way down the list of plausible reasons for your exclusion from the store.
In fact, for you to bring your race up and try to use that as a cudgel to punish Hermes for not giving you treatment that no white person would have gotten cheapens the genuine suffering of ordinary black people in this difficult world.
Oprah, you are the richest woman in the world precisely because white people do not discriminate against you. They watch your show. They take your advice. They buy the books you recommend. They even watch Dr. Phil because you told them he was smart.
There are black people who face discrimination all the time, but Oprah, you are not one of them.
And you should be ashamed of pretending to suffer what they suffer, when in fact all you got was exactly the treatment that most of us get all the time, regardless of our race.
You should have stopped in front of that closed door, laughed a little, and said to yourself, "Oprah, old girl, this store clerk has helped you, and just in time, too! You were actually starting to believe you deserved special treatment. Welcome back to planet Earth, Oprah! You've been gone too long."

Adam and Jeremy Say: At What Point Does An Award Become Worthless?

In 1929, the NBR was the first group to choose the ten best English-language movies of the year and the best foreign films, and is still the first critical body to announce its annual awards... Well well well then The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures best of list for 2007 must be really really good or at least really really early... Whatever here's the link... but if you are to busy for silly things like reading here is a brief rundown... No Country for Old Men best film, Tim Burtton best director, George Clooney best actor (you could probably guess that is an award for Michale Clayton and not Oceans 13) and Julie Christie best actress (Yeah we don't know who she is either.)

Adam Says: Why Work When You Can Just Hide.

Why do I work? Is it for the money or is it something else? I think its for the money. Why do I work for money? Is it for happiness or is it for comfort? It is silly to think that I would work so hard to make myself happy. Some of the happiest moments of my life have come at times when I was poor... or have cost very little... I was happy when I bought a huge truck for $1000 and then beat the living tar out of it for the next three years... I was happy when I lived over a sewing shop and paid a flat $200 a month for all my expenses; which was good because I only made $7000 that year. I was happy when I spent a month sneaking into my friends apartment pool everyday reading trashy magazines and working a tan. I was happy when I was a junior level go-fer in a big government PR office who spent two hours a day playing basketball with old men. I was happy when I went tagging old rail road tunnels with my future wife. So if so many things that came at so little cost gave me such joy why am I now working so hard to make money? Comfort is the only real answer I have, but that's not really the answer. I say that I want to able to do things I enjoy without worrying about money, and I say that I need to work hard so I can rest for a long time at the end of my life, but in reality its more fear than comfort that drives me... Fear that I wont have money to pay the bills... fear that I will get sick and not have money to go to the doctor... fear that my wife may get pregnant and we wont be able to afford to birth the child... fear that I will have to work the rest of my life... this is not good.

God tells me that His eye is on the sparrow and so if He is taking care of a little bird how much more is he taking care of me? He tells me I am to be fearless, and yet I am worried and afraid. It's not like its a new thing for me to be a giant faithless hypocrite... but some times when you realize how hypocritical you have been and how faithless you are it takes you back a few steps. I regret that these past few months I have spent so much time afraid and hiding. I feel as if there has been so much joy around me and I have tried to keep it out. I only let it small doses from time to time... at a family dinner, on a date with my wife, talking to a friend, and better yet talking to God. It's funny how God listens to people he knows are complete fakes and frauds and losers and quitters and sinners. If I even think someone may be lying to me I shun them (i.e. Mitt Romney and Joel Olsteen.) God on the other hand still hears me still loves me and even still talks to me... yeah I know that's crazy evangelical talk and you can discount it if you want, but that's the faith I have and its the faith I want to live.

So my wish this Christmas is not for a new toy, and its not for a new job; because I know that neither will make me happy. Is for Peace, Joy and Courage. In the book of Luke when the Angels appear to the shepherds God says that the angles told the Sheppards to not be afraid, but instead to be joyful because they brought good news... the Savior had been born and he would finally bring peace to earth.
8And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch
over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the
glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel
said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be
for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you;
he is Christ[
the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths
and lying in a manger."
13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly
host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14"Glory to God in
the highest, and on earth peace to men on
whom his favor rests."

I know it's a little cliche to talk about the Christmas story at this time of year. Jeremy and I try to stay away from crusty old religious practices, but the truth is that God has come to bring Peace, Joy and Courage... even to worried cowards like me. So I hope that I can fully accept that peace and courage and experience the full joy of Salvation with Jesus.

I realize this all deviates from the norm for Adam and Jeremy, and I also realize that I just took a very long journey from discontent in the office to Salvation on the Cross, but thanks for reading it, and hope you also have a Merry Christmas.

Adam and Jeremy Say: Hapy Birthday Bra!

Who would have know? It's the bra's 100th birthday... read all about it and even get a brief history from this USA Today story: Bra has held up famously for 100 years.
We must say the bra has aged well, but we really can't say the same for the "car bra."
