MotorCast – Shooting Brake Edition

Station wagons have been around for many many more years than the minivan has.  As mentioned in MotorCast this week, Mike Brady owned a Plymouth wagon to haul around his 51 kids.  Safety concerns leave us where we sit in today’s wagon world.  Seat belts, automatic brakes, lane detection and technological advances like satellite navigation [...]

Watch The Official “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Trailer: Not Safe For Young Eyes

I'm not a reader. I'm not gonna lie to you and say that I am, I'm just not. While admitting that, do you know how long it took me to read the Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy? Ten days. Yes, three books in ten days. There's no shame in my I-just-couldn't-stop-reading-about-the-many-red-hot-layers of Christian Grey game. (See what I did there?!?)

So, you can imagine my anticipation for the movie. Even thou the movie won't be here until Valentine's Day 2015, the official trailer has been released. (I've already watched it 5 times, haha!)

DISCLAIMER: THIS VIDEO IS NOT FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 OR WHO EMBARRASSES EASILY. YES, ADULTS ONLY PEOPLE! OH... ENJOY ;)

Major New Ride Announcement Tonight at Holiday World

I cannot wait!  8:30pm CST tonight, Holiday World is set to make a MAJOR new ride announcement.  And they have been teasing us and dropping hints about it for months with their ingenious and clever website 66 Days at Sea. For the last 60-something days, the amusement park has been slowly giving clues and tonight the folks that have made educated guesses and wild stabs in the dark will learn if they were right, wrong, or close.  While we don't know exactly what the park is going to announce, there are a couple of things we are sure of.

Take A Listen To The “Beachin” Remix! [VIDEO]

This is gonna be one of those "you'll either love it or hate it" songs, ha! You know me, I love me some country music and I love me some rap and r&b, so I'm cool with it. Jake Owen's "Beachin" is the perfect song for summertime and he's released a remix.

Yep... he's added T-Pain and Mike Posner to the chill song and spiced it up a bit.

Check it out and decide for yourself if you like it!
