Oh golly gee they're having orgasms!
The "Storm Desk" is finally a palpable outlet. "Team Coverage" is mighty, mighty. Pretty soon the inevitable Mill Valley creek shots and kids on the street playing in the wet stuff. Pull out the blue parkas and get ready for the live shots. Schmuck from the NWS says February models indicate a trend to higher than average precipitation.
Prepare for floods. Too much water. Big rig accident on 880. But, we need the rain. Mike Pechner alert! 1-3 inches this weekend alone and no, I'm not talking about John Holmes. The news vans are parked in front of the Half Moon Bay 7-11. Dude!
*At KGO-TV there's a lot of people asking why some staffers are wearing t-shirts with pictures of turtles on the front. Yeah, I know, it's weird. Code for something.
*In 2008, KGO Radio had over 30 AE's, (account execs)--now they have 4. How's that new format working out? When the mattress company splits and they inevitably will because you're headed for under-a-2- status, the next Christmas party will be in the Knibber lunchroom.
*The most irrelevant sports event in history: The Pro-Am down in Pebble Beach which lost its main luster when Bill Murray decided to depart way back when. Meanwhile, the only media that still covers it are the dude boys from the Cumulus sports outpost and a few scribes who love the free food and picking up chicks in the Tap Room.
*Big day on the Owens show: first hour, Ronn will talk gadgets with Leo LaPorte; ask women from Pleasanton if they prefer older men over younger man; then do a quick phono with Evan Goldstein about the merits of a Cabernet over a Zinfandel. That's the first fifteen minutes.
*The old blind guy that can't sleep at night has been replaced by a younger blind guy that can't sleep at night. Maybe they should buy some SweetJack ding-dongs.
*The fat chick with the hat and the foodie chap. What a combo!
*The other day at KRON the news director was walking around the newsroom and a whole shitload of people began to run toward the break area. One of them was wearing the turtle t-shirt. Notice a pattern? (Trust me in a few weeks you'll figure it out.)
*Hey, Bristow: you're not that funny. Then again, unlike Bunger, at least you're not angry.
*KCBS, the traffic on the 8's? promos--are you that that paranoid? The other guys are so yesterday they're playing backgammon in the food lounge.
*If Savage sounds a little extra grumpy it's because he's itching to sue Sean Hannity because Hannity's been this much close to a libel suit. Hey Mike: btw, more spaghetti recipes, less Obama talk. If only Sussman knew that recipe.
*More turtle t-shits at PIX too. But they're more clandestine.
*Liam Mayclam: The Irish Red Reed.
*Brian Murphy: If he got paid by how many times he uttered dude, he'd have Bill Gates money. Dude!
*Hey, loudmouth ---if you're going to try to hit on the PIX chick do it at some quiet place, say, Hunan. Kokkari is way too public and besides, you have a tab there.
*I woke up the other day from a really terrible nightmare: the Kaiser whore was trying to rescue Eve Plumb off the top of me. Needless to say their was no happy ending.
*Alison Janney: Every man's first wife.
*The geniuses at KQED think a relevant idea of local programming is another Josh Kornbluth experiment and a restaurant show with the blond with big boobs. Maybe they too should begin wearing the turtle shirts.
*Can someone please explain to me the reason why Wayne Freedman thinks his shit doesn't stink? The only sensible thing you've ever done is store the 900 Emmys in the garage. After that, ugggg.
*This just in: Aaron Pero has a heart--he bought the staff lunch at the Van Ness Burger King. Soon after, inexplicably, he began yelling and screaming.
*Chef Ryan Scott went to do a #2 at his restaurant. It was not caramelized. Shit happens.
*Bold new programming on the Gil Gross Show today: Gil will interview his wife about the upside of cryonics.
*Kate Scott is to creativity is what Woody Allen is to reading Highlights.
*CSNBA Insider, Andy Baggarly, is headed to the Arizona desert to cover Giants Spring Training: Andy has real good insight: last year, he reported Timmy Lincecum thinks fart noises are funnier than obese gamer babes.
*Hey, did you hear the news? It's raining. And we need the rain. We really need the rain. Why? Because we need the rain.
*Follow me on Twitter because we need the rain.
