Linkin Park Rendered in Movie Clips.

Sep 21, 2017 101

183 of them, to be exact. Somebody took a lot of time to pull this one together, and it’s worth enjoying every second simply to play “spot the movie” in this video. (My favorite part – without giving too much away – is the audio substitution using the word “no” for “know” at 2:33.) Take a look at here, and have fun. ūüôā –¬†Todd Berryman Middays on WIN 104.9 Just Say “NnnOOOOOOOOO!!!” ...

50 Years’ Worth of Celebrating Small Town America…

Sep 19, 2017 67

…at this year’s Hope Heritage Days! The town itself has been in existence¬†as Hope since 1834, around the time a post office was established (although the area was settled four years earlier). In fact, were it not for another town in existence, Hope¬†might have been Goshen instead. For four days, Hope Heritage Days finds the town’s population expanding to 15 times its normal size…but even with the sprawl, it still feels down-home, small-town friendly. If you’ve never been, you ought to go. And if you HAVE, you know what you’ll be missing. See you there! (And find out more about this year’s anniversary event here.) –Todd Berryman Middays at WIN 104.9 And Heaven Help You If You Get Between Me and My Elephant Ears and My Grilled Corn… ...

Another Movie Todd’s Looking Forward To…

Sep 14, 2017 77

…is¬†Battle of the Sexes, recreating the early 1970s tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. It was more than just tennis, though, but a signpost in changing times, when the old guard had to fall away and much needed to be recast. Early notices indicate that Emma Stone inhabits her real-life character admirably, and that Steve Carrell brings the noise as that particular member of the old guard. Here’s a fascinating article about Billie Jean King and the actress that plays her, at this year’s US Open. The movie’s out on September 22nd. Hope to see you there. ūüôā –¬†Todd Berryman Middays on WIN 104.9 Cueing Up Elton John’s “Philadelphia Freedom” in His Head… ...

Did You See P!nk’s Speech at the VMAs the Other Night?

Aug 30, 2017 97

Maybe you should take a look, if you haven’t. This is one of the most powerful acceptance speeches for an award I’ve ever seen. It’s a combination of P!nk encouraging her daughter, but also encouraging young women around the world, telling them: you’re alright. It’s a story that takes a shot at body shaming, bad behavior and many other things, and it’s¬†well worth a view here. –¬†Todd Berryman Middays on WIN 104.9   ...

Todd Remembers Glen Campbell. :(

Aug 9, 2017 157

Getting the news that Glen Campbell had died really socked me in the gut yesterday. I knew it was coming, and inevitable, but still… Years ago, I got the chance to record a phone interview with him, as he was in the process of promoting his then-current album. I started by telling him a story about when I was living in Colorado Springs for a year, and instead of an ice cream man, we had a Sno-Cone man. Instead of the tinkly music you hear from ice cream trucks, our Sno-Cone guy would play Glen Campbell’s “Rhinestone Cowboy” relentlessly from an 8-track player. Not the whole album, though: just program 3, over and over and over, the one that had the title track. I told Glen that as a result, I have a Pavlovian response: every time I hear the song, I suddenly crave a coconut Sno-Cone. Glen was greatly amused by that little story. We had a great chat, one of the truly great ones, but the moment that... ...

Stay at Home Chef Has Beautiful and Epic Response to an Online Hater.

Aug 8, 2017 760

image credit: screengrab from Viral Thread’s Facebook Page Early warning that you will probably want to grab some tissues for this. And for any of you reading who may be down on yourselves, for whatever reason, THIS. The woman speaking in the attached video is Rachel Farnsworth, also known as the Stay at Home Chef. Her website is here. As for the video, it’s her response to someone who decided to be catty to her online, about her and her appearance. Rachel’s reply is one of the most amazing things I’ve witnessed. And it’s also heartbreaking. I admit that I might be identifying with this a bit too much, for my own unnamed reasons, during different times of my life…but I get it. The big lesson here, at least how I interpret it, is YOU BE YOU. I don’t care what your bugaboo is – or whoever gave it to you. They’re ALL WRONG. Know that you are a creature of light, you are invincible¬†and eternal¬†and also perfect exactly the... ...
