Female Gamers in the Evansville Area Not as Rare as Previously Thought

Earlier today during my show (the On Demand Lunch specifically), I got a call from a young women looking to request a song. After telling me what song she wanted to hear, I did what I will normally try to do when someone calls, make idle chit-chat. She gave me her name and when I asked what she was up to today, she told me she was waiting outside of GameStop in the Mall while her husband (or maybe it was boyfriend) was picking out a game. Instantly I thought it was a typical shopping trip for a man and a woman with the exception that it's usually the guy waiting outside in the hallway, keeping watch over the countless bags that have been acquired during the trip like a Secret Service agent guarding the President while the woman searches for more great deals.

As I would quickly find out, this wasn't the only exception about this particular shopping trip. It turns out that the man was in the video game store on orders from his better half to find HER a game! WHOA! Say again?

Justin Timberlake Buys a Stake in Myspace

If he can bring sexy back, why not Myspace? It’s been revealed that Justin Timberlake was a significant financial backer of Wednesday’s $35 million dollar acquisition of Myspace by digital advertising firm Specific Media from former parent News Corp. Timberlake, who played Napster founder and Facebook investor Sean Parker in the ‘The Social Network’ will “lead the business strategy” for the new version of the floundering social network. Though he will have an office at Myspace HQ in Beverly Hills, Specific Media chief executive Tim Vangerhook said that JT is “probably not going to be there every day.”

Cleaning Out CD’s Marks End of an Era

There was a time in my life when it seemed like I was buying at least one CD a week. That was also a time in my life when I still lived at home, wasn't married, and didn't have 2 kids to take care of. Outside of a vehicle payment, gas to make it go, and insurance, I had money to burn and I chose to burn that money on fast food, video games, and CD's.

At one point I had somewhere in the neighborhood of 200-225 compact discs on my CD rack organized in alphabetical order. Yes, I said alphabetical order. You could say that's a symptom of mild O.C.D., but I say it made finding the disc I wanted quick and convenient. Six of one, half dozen of the other I guess you could say. Anywho, back to the point. Most of my CD's were purchased, but as you might expect a good portion of them I had received for free through working at the station. I was pretty proud of my collection and as the years went on, I went from taking a carrying case that held 10 CD's with me everywhere I went to eventually lugging around a Case Logic (TM) carrier that held 200 discs which gave me the opportunity to bring nearly my entire CD collection with me everywhere I went. Then, back in 2001 a new device was born that would eventually end my need to collect CD's...the iPod.
