Best dressed at the 'Globes'

Monday, Jan, 13 2014


The Golden Globes last night came off as kind of a hot mess. There were lots of mistakes and no shortage of rather odd speeches.

But one of the reasons we like to watch at our house is for the fashion.

My pick for best dressed last night was this Ralph Lauren red number complete with chic cape, which is very IN I guess.

That's one of the stars of the movie '12 Years a Slave', Lupita Nyong'o.

Classy and stunning.

This picture makes the dress look a little less red and a little more orange, but if you watched you know it was as red as red can be.

Tonight there will e a special Globes edition of 'Fashion Police' on TV.

We'll see what Joan Rivers and company pick as their best and worst dressed.

Although I am not sure why I am at all interested in the opinion of a woman with purple hair and a ton of tattoos....yes, I'm talking to you Kelly Osbourne.

When it comes to worst dressed of the night I have plenty to work with...

--Julia Roberts looked like she had a white shirt tucked into a black dress on top.

--Jennifer Lawrence looked like she was stuffed into a white barrel with black straps.

--Sandra Bullock's dress looked like she couldn't make up her mind so they sewed three together.

--And then there's my winner, thee worst dressed at the Globes is....
Lena Dunham, a banana gone bad on the red carpet.

Weigh-In Wednesday bigger and better

Wednesday, Jan, 8 2014

Thanks to my friends at Lake Park Swim and Fitness for sponsoring this year's "Weigh-In Wednesday's" on the PhilCast....my annual quest for us to lose some winter weight and get in better shape between New Year's and Easter.

All listeners who jump on board and report in from time to time to check in on how they are doing will be eligible for a nice prize...a full year's membership at Lake Park. And heck, if you play along and don't live in the Valley, we'll take care of you with some PhilCast gear if your name is drawn when we conclude on the week before Easter.


Lets do this together and have some fun along the way if we can. I think it helps to be accountable....so be accountable to PhilCast Nation. Drop me an email....post on our Facebook fan page on Wednesdays or even call during the segment to report in. Wednesdays right after the 3:00 news.

A vending machine burrito

Wednesday, Jan, 8 2014

Would YOU do it?

Would you buy and eat a burrito from a vending machine?

On the Wednesday PhilCast I have a story about the new burrito-dispensing machines that even include toppings.

Yeah, sour cream with my vending machine burrito.
Good times.

I think it all sounds disgusting and can't imagine ever eating this.

But that won't stop us from imagining what a talking burrito vending machine experience would be like.

Hear it on the show today in the 4:00 hour.

Car wash?

Tuesday, Jan, 7 2014

I'm a little confused as to who would get a car wash when the temp is -17 with a wind chill in the mid-minus 40 range.

And you can hear that surprise in my voice when I had the idea to call a local car wash in Appleton during the show on Monday.

Here's the promo:
