One of my old Peaches Music buddies, Eugene, tells me the cable company in Greensboro is having some sort of di$pute with the local NBC affiliate station, and is (inexplicably) showing news broadcasts from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in its place.
Weird, huh? I’m sure the folks of Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point are excited to learn about the latest RAV4 rollover on Route 11 in Chinchilla, PA, and the Blood Cheese Festival in Upper Good Christ! Township, or whatever.
To help get my North Carolina friends through these challenging days, I’d like to propose a drinking game to be played while watching WBRE news. Each player should take a shot of booze whenever one of the following items are mentioned or featured:
- suspicious house fire
- Turkey Hill convenience store robbery
- citizens “concerned” about a new business opening
- man in enormous 2007 family reunion t-shirt OUTRAGED because his sewer fee is going up $2 per year, and who repeatedly uses the phrase “it’s always the little guy”
I saw this on Good Morning America a few days ago, and couldn’t believe it. I’d like to know your thoughts. It profiles a 12 year old(!) girl who is having her (weeks old?) pubes professionally obliterated for summer. The whole thing boggles my mind — the obliteration itself, the pre-teenness of it all, the willingness to talk about it with strangers, the camera crew… What do you think about this? Does it give you a case of the multi-level heebie-jeebies, like it does me?
Is this perfect, or what? I love it! Great work.
And I didn’t take this picture myself, but wish I had. In fact, at the age of 49, I would’ve snapped photos from several angles, and shouted, “This is great! It’s beautiful!!” And the glow of happiness would’ve remained with me for hours.
I’ll see you guys again tomorrow. Have great day!

Lot of the cable/satellite/channel disputes going on. Viacom forced Directv to drop a bunch of channels, Hearst (Cincinnati local NBC affiliate) dropped from Time Warner/Insight (they are showing Terra Haute local channel in Cincy right now). Seems to be some real money grabbing going on and of course we all know who is paying for that.
That Spongbob pic is the best. Laughed my ass off internally, not out loud.

OMG! Spongebob and the beans sent me into a coughing fit! That is HILARIOUS…and a pretty snappy name for a rock band, too!
Dang it , not first anymore!

How bushy can these girls be at the ripe old age of 13?
Oh and first

It’s driving the old folks batty around here! They’re calling up our radio station (that hasn’t been associated with that TV station since 1972) and complaining along with questions. I”m digging the WBRE! Can’t wait to give your drinking game a try!

our ABC pittsburgh affiliate is gone blank. leave mah tv alone.
Love the fiver/Bill Murray note. Reminds me of those matchbook covers “Learn to draw Winky!”
Orlando Florida is also seeing the NBC station from Scranton….
The Spongebob photo had me laughing to tears!! That’s why I loiter here.
I perform the laser hair removal on people. Been doing it for 8 years now. No one that young has come in with a ‘fro in her pants that needed zapped for the summer. Cheese-n-Crackers people! If that’s the case…be proud and show it off!
Maybe she was Italian. Just sayin’.

Bill Fuckin’ Murray has been the wallpaper on the studio computers at the radio station since yesterday. It is constantly producing laughs.
BFM. Good idea for Pebble Beach hats and shirts next year.
My ‘local’ news comes from 170 miles away. Murder, mayhem and drunks driving the wrong way on the expressway. The drinking game is tough around here so we just drink for no apparent reason what so ever.
I need to cancel my Dish Network. If they had any Scranton stations, it would be a different story.
The Bill Murray and the Spongebob pics are both brilliant. And yeah, that waxing thing IS creepy.
Agreed, the “waxing thing” may be creepy due to their age, but honestly? Beats MY story waiting until I was 23 to read about it in Cosmo.
For some of us, young or not, it adds a level of confidence.

I feel sorry for the girl if she has foliage down there that a razor can’t handle for the duration of a summer camp! My God!
Speaking of Scranton, I hear all the local civil servents have been reduced to minimum wage. Yikes!
She didn’t look 12. But she did look like the type that would be hairy enough to need it (yes – even at that age…)
The waxing video creeped me the hell out. Had to stop watching about a minute in, as my lunch was starting to turn at the mention of “12 year old.”
Just too much.
I quit watching pretty quick too. Made me feel creepy I even clicked on it just to see what the deal was. I can’t judge any of that stuff and I don’t need to know about it…
dto…dave the ostrich…AND GET OFF MY SAND damit!!
I just got my pubes waxed…. OK I stuck my dick in a beehive.
Thank GOD I am naturally unhairy. I could go 2 – 3 weeks withut shaving my legs, let alone waxing my lips.
I just crawled out from under a rock, so I’m wondering: when did it become appropriate for a national network to broadcast a report on a 12-year old girl waxing her pubes? And for the live hosts of the “show” to laugh about it–even making reference to the guy’s young daughter? Creepy, yes. Inappropriate? IMHO, yes again. Damn, sometimes I feel so fucking old.
In a lot of ways, I have been glad that I didn’t have a daughter (in superficial, “I sure am glad I didn’t have to deal with that” sort of ways). Now the thought of having a granddaughter is starting to induce cringing.
I, too, turned the video off about halfway through. That said, I’m glad I watched the first minute or so–the woman at the :49 mark is a hottie notwithstanding the fact that there are a couple of younglings clinging to her.
