To Tat or Not to Tat, That is the Question

I don't normally do resolutions at the beginning of the year for a couple of reasons. 1) I can't think of a good one, or  2) the one's I know I should do (eat healthier, exercise more, blah, blah, blah) won't happen because I know I won't give them the proper amount of committment. With that said, for reasons I can't explain, the change of the calendar from 2011 to 2012 was different. I finally came up with a goal (I refuse to conform and call it a "resoultion") that I feel like I can get behind.

What Do You Want For Valentine’s Day? [POLL]

The bane of every man's existence is getting close. No, not the start of the new season of American Idol, I'm talking about Valentine's Day (cue scary/dramatic music). That one day of the year where the pressure is on for us to deliver a gift (or gifts) that reflects our love and devotion to you. To you it sounds like a simple task, but remember we're men, and we're not that bright. Here's your chance to make it easy on us and just tell us what you want.

Which ’80′s Movie Deserves a Sequel – Part One of Five

With the revelation last week that Tom Cruise is working on a sequel to Top Gun with original producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott, it got me thinking about other iconic movies from the '80's that I think are due for a follow up. Over the course of the next five days, I'll present to you the five movies I think are more than deserving of a follow-up. Let's begin...

Where Does the Speed Limit Start and Other Inqueries

My mind wanders...a lot. The arguement could be made that I have developed some form of A.D.D. over the years or that I've had it all my life undiagnosed. Squirrel! Anywho, I prefer to think of myself as more of the creative type whose mind cannot be contained by conventional labels, like Kurt Cobain or Carrot Top (???). I'm pretty sure that's not the case either, but it helps me sleep at night.

Things You Will Never Hear Me Say – Ryan’s List

In an effort to open myself up a bit and allow you to get to know me better, I've decided to compile a list of things you'll never hear me say. Sure, I could go the easy route and give you a bio about how I was born and raised on the West Side, graduated from Mater Dei in 1995 and USI in 2001, or how I'm happily married with two great kids, but what fun is that?

Instead, I thought I'd throw out some random comments and let you infer from them what you will. So here you go, a few things you'll never hear me say:

Ryan O’Bryan Goes to Lucas Oil Stadium

I'll let you in on a little secret. Being on the air every weekday from 10am-2pm on 106-1 KISS-FM is not all I do around the station. On Friday nights, I moonlight on our sister-station, Newstalk 1280AM as the color commentator for their coverage of high school football. This is my second season in the commentator's chair and I love every minute of it. Especially when I get the opportunity to do what I did this past Saturday, call a game from an NFL stadium.

Ryan O’Bryan’s Old School Jam of the Day for August 16th

I said I was going to do this every weekday starting yesterday and so far I'm 2-for-2. For me that's a major accomplishment. Yesterday I featured Tap the Bottle & Twist the Cap from Young Black Teenagers, today I bring you...Fu-Schnickens featuring Shaquille O'Neal (yes, THAT Shaquille O'Neal)

Ryan O’Bryan’s Old School Jam of the Day for August 15th

It's amazing to me how easy it is to get lost in YouTube . You know how it goes, you stop by to find a highlight from your favorite show (or whatever) and the next thing you know, you're watching a video of a cat expressing shock as he discovers that (SPOILER ALERT!) Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's father.

Today's trip to YouTube ended up being surprisingly productive. I stumbled across a music video for an old school hip-hop song I hadn't heard in years which led me to come up with an idea for a daily feature here on 1061evansville.com. That idea would be "Ryan O'Bryan's Old School Jam of the Day" (hence the headline). I think the goal here is pretty self-explanitory. Each weekday, I will provide you with the video of an old school jam. This "old school jam" could be a song you hear us play from time to time on 106-1 KISS-FM, or, like today's submission, it could be one you haven't heard in years. Heck, it may not necessarily even be a hip-hop song. Now that you have the concept, I present to you today's entry...Young Black Teenagers.
