For those of you how watch my show, Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff, you may know that I have a problem with 95% of the commercials on television. I think they are insulting to my intelligence. Let me clarify that I don’t consider myself a particularly intelligent guy (as many of you might have noticed with my punctuation and spelling), so if I’m insulted, most of you should be outraged.
Anyway, I just want to point out that there are the occasional TV ad that I find amusing, like the GEICO Hump Day Camel Commercial. Don’t really know if it would get me to buy Geico insurance, but it makes me laugh.
Late in the day at work, I often make my way to the vending machines in the company cafeteria. Lately I’ve got in the habit of purchasing a back of Crunchy Cheetos. Not everyday, but at least 2 or 3 times a week I head down and grab a bag.
Last week I entered the cafeteria and already was already puling out a dollar from my wallet when I was filled will horror. My Crunchy Cheetos have been replaced with Baked Crunchy Cheetos. In fact, as I looked at the other chips in the machine, all were backed. I walked away with no purchase.
Yesterday I really had a taste for Crunchy Cheetos so I did what I had said I would never do. I purchased a bag of these Cheetos. All my worse fears were realized. They were awful.
So disgusting were these that I didn’t even finished the bag. Yuck! Who had the bright idea is it to convert junk food into something healthy. We call is just food for a reason! We want junk food… or at least I do.
I really hope the damn vending machine man goes broke.
I have noticed that, besides the one bag I bought, they don’t seem to be selling.
I repeat, I really hope the damn vending machine man goes broke. He gets no more of my money!
From last weeks hilarious show, this song was featured in the intermission. It is from a band from Stockholm, Sweden called the Fabulous Four. The song was released in 1966 and called Rotten Rats. Great 60’s garage fuzz tune.
Featured on the last episode of Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff is a 60 Garage Rock song called What My Baby Wants by The Mor-Loks. The Mor-Loks is a Ft Lauderdale, FL and this song is a great tune from 1966 on Decca Records. The line up for this recording was Ron Armstrong bass, Mike Wall on drums, Bill “Nappy” Lynn on lead vocals, Billy Burke keyboards, and Craig Held on lead guitar.
I have no proof of this, but I heard it said that every time a Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff episode is watched, an angel gets its wings. I don’t know if this is true. So while we are on a two month vacation from the show, feel free to watch and older show. You might laugh, or tap you feel to the music and you just help out a grounded angel.
And for a little bonus, here is a little blast from the past
Teenage Frankenstein – Blood of Dracula Radio Spot
Last week I saw, to my horror, a statues update on Facebook which stated:
Its with great sadness that I announce that Okemos Brewing Internet Radio will be shutting down tonight at midnight. Its been a wonderful labor of love for me and I appreciate all the kind words of support as well as the financial support from some of you.
I have nothing but great memories. I hope to be back someday. Thank you.
What is The Okemos Brewing Company? It happens to be the finest Classic Rock station on the Internet. The fact that it was shutting down was really blow to use who enjoyed listening to the finest classic rock. The thing that sets OkemosBrewing Company apart from the rest is A) No Commercials and B) Deep cuts. I have heard songs on this station that I have never, ever heard on the radio before.
So it looked like I was back to listen to the radio again and being forced to listen to Stairway to Heaven and Smoke on the Water over and over again.
Not so fast!
A new update over the weekend!
After just a week filled with tons of very kind comments and emails, we’re back. You all made me shed a few tears; and that I appreciate.
See, the people talked and Dan listened. Oh, I should point out that Dan is my older brother but that doesn’t mean I don;t believe every word I just wrote!
