Have you seen this man?....In your dreams?

Have you dreamt of this man?

Saw this story on the news this past weekend, and it was kind of interesting...

Here's the history behind it, and you can check it all out at

Not long ago in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life.

That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist's desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life.

The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognize the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams. All the patients refer to him as THIS MAN.

From then until today, at least 2000 people have claimed they have seen this man in their dreams, in many cities all over the world: Los Angeles, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Tehran, Beijing, Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Paris, New Dehli, Moskow etc.

I even talked to a girl who swears she said this guy made her a Denver Omelette in a dream she has about a month ago.

Lady finds Reindeer Pork Chop

I must admit, I'm pretty impressed.

A woman named Sue Church stopped by her local Fox affiliate to show them a pork chop that slightly, scratch that, TOTALLY looked like Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer.

Must have been a slow news day!

Brooks and Dunn @ The Chumash!

Brooks and Dunn spent what very well may be their last night playing the Chumash Casino Resort doing all their #1's...and then some, which is also the title of their brand new greatest hit album.
Kix and Ronnie put on a great show despite having numerous vocal issues through out the night, some of which they even made open jokes about. Probably the song most affected by these noticeable vocal issues was the song, 'Believe', which happens to be probably my favorite song from the duo. One literally every big note, Ronnie would pull the mic away from his mouth, sometimes with his arm extended all the way. You could tell he was feeling it out, and a couple times thought he may of had the note under control, brought the mic back to him, and you would hear a note that you think should be coming from someone from the first weeks of the American Idol auditions. You know the auditions where the people are just horrible. I really felt bad for the guy. I mean here is Ronnie Dunn; thought by most to have the GREATEST male voice in country music, and he was struggling bad, atleast on that song. Some of the other hits that weren't as vocally demanding were not as bad, and to be fair to Ronnie, the couple songs that Kix normally does on his own, didnt sound so hot either. And despite some obvious vocal numances, don't get me wrong, the show was great!
I have seen B&D a few times, and one of my favorite parts, and one the reasons they are one of my favorite shows to catch is the military tribute they have been known to do during their hit, "Only In America". The have members from the different military branches march out during the chorus, and the crowd goes nuts. The mixture of the song, then these service men/women marching out, not so much as even cracking a smile, or making eye contact with anyone, even B&D. Through the fast paced song, they slowly salute, then make their way off stage. I took some video of it yesterday from my Blackberry, so I invite you to check it out below. I will warn you though, the crowd is going to flippin crazy loud, you can barely hear the song being sung and played in the background. Enjoy.
Even though the guys have one final farewell tour they are calling 'The Last Rodeo' tour slated for 2010, it being a farewell tour to arguably the biggest duo in country music history, it might not find its way back to a venue like the Chumash for obvious reasons, mainly capacity. Oh and yea, it be nice to be able to have a beer there as well.

A new study says its possible, and it could be all your fault.

An article out of Chicago talks about a study that major clinical depression can be very real in kids as young as 3 years old!

Here's some of the article:

Depression in children as young as 3 is real and not just a passing grumpy mood, according to provocative new research.

The study is billed as the first to show major depression can be chronic even in very young children, contrary to the stereotype of the happy-go-lucky preschooler.

Luby's research team followed more than 200 preschoolers, ages 3 to 6, for up to two years, including 75 diagnosed with major depression. The children had up to four mental health exams during the study.
Among initially depressed children, 64 percent were still depressed or had a recurrent episode of depression six months later, and 40 percent still had problems after two years. Overall, nearly 20 percent had persistent or recurrent depression at all four exams.

Though sure to raise eyebrows among lay people, the notion that children so young can get depressed is increasingly accepted in psychiatry.

Depressed children appear sad even when playing, and their games may have themes of death or other somber topics. Persistent lack of appetite, sleep problems, and frequent temper tantrums that involve biting, kicking or hitting also are signs of possible depression, Egger said.
University of Massachusetts psychologist Lisa Cosgrove said she is skeptical about the accuracy of labeling preschoolers as depressed, because diagnostic tools for evaluating mental health in children aren't as well tested as those used for adults.
And Cosgrove said that while early treatment is important for troubled children, “we just have to make sure that those interventions aren't compromised” by industry pressure to use drugs.

Uhhh..ok. I like how the article says, "Though sure to raise eyebrows among lay people..." about just normal people.

I guess it won't be long until we are watching TV and hear, "Ask your doctor about CHEWABLE Prozac!", or "Don't you think your child needs Lexapro? Now in Bubblegum flavor"

This went down right before the show Sat Aug 1 in Paso Robles at the Mid State Fair.

During my interview with Del Gray and again at the meet and greet, I asked for the band to sing, 'You and Forever and Me'. They pulled us into their dressing room and gave us a performance the 10-12 people in that room will never forget. Now you can see what went down.

I took video with my digital camera and my blackberry. One of the guys with the band accidentally took my camera back to Nashville mistaking it for his. So the only video I have for right now is that from my blackberry. I'll upload the better quality one when it makes its way back from Nashville. I can't believe my camera got a free trip to Nashville, and I'm not there to take pictures with it!

***Warning: My singing voice is often loud, mostly obnoxious, and at times truly offensive. Sorry. I was pretty damn excited though.

There was a lot of great shows this year at the Mid State Fair, with vocal excellence of Carrie Underwood, a great performance from Journey, KISS' pyro technics, Tim McGraw making national news by mistakingly kicking another guy out of one of his shows, there was a lot going on and a lot to talk about.

The fair had one if its best post rodeo finals concert with super group of the 90's, Little Texas. As I have said on the air, I am a huge fan of Little Texas. They were literally MY FIRST exposure to country music. I grew up in the suburbs of L.A, so country music was never something I got exposed a lot to. When my brother in law Andy threw in the album 'First Time for Everything' from Little Texas, I was hooked. Great Harmonies, Great Music, and more importantly, Great Hair!

With their hits, You and Forever and Me, I'd Rather Miss You, What Might Have Been, My Love, Kick a Little, Some Guys Have All the Love, and ofcourse, God Bless Texas, these guys had plenty of great songs to sing for the very welcoming crowd.

I watched the whole show like a 5 year old boy. I just stared at it. My wife probably thinks I have issues. I made up for the lack of attention I likely denied her the whole show, and we shared a slow dance to What Might Have Been that I will never forget.

The guys were very gracious and nice
in the backstage meet and greet. In fact when we were all there, Del says out loud, "Is Adam here?" I was thinking, "Did the guy from Little Texas just say he was looking for me?" Like I said, I may have issues.

I asked them and joked wondering if my wish to hear 'You and Forever and Me' in its entirety would likely happen. Duane from the band motioned to me to come back to their dressing room after the show, that they have a surprise for me.

What went down after that was something I'll never forget.

They invited me and my small group of friends in their dressing room, and they began looking for a guitar. They realized all their instruments had been taken to the stage, so one of the guys went to the stage to get a guitar, and they played an unplugged version of You and Forever and Me the whole way through, and I even got to sing with them. When I went back to watch the video of what went down, I cant believe I sound so loud and obnoxious singing with them, but I must have been really into it. They sounded great. I'll make a couple needed edits to the video, and post it here tomorrow hopefully.

Enjoy the pics...beginning with a pic with the entire band (all original members), and my good friend Jeremy.

Lady Antebellum on the free Fort Frontier Stage last night for a 6:30p & 8:30p show. My wife Cathy and I saw the first show, and liked it so much, squeezed our way in to the second show and stayed for more than half of it.

They covered AC/DC, John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, among others. The sang all their big hits, albeit there's only a few. They also broke off a handful of new songs. Although the band is still young, so it may have seemed like most people only knew their 3 or 4 hits, but this band is solid.

The crowd was easily drawn in not only by the bands chemistry with eachother, but with the chemistry they had no problem establishing with the crowd.

If you saw either show, you know these guys are great LIVE. Below some shots from my blackberry.

The California Mid State Fair is definately two-for-two in my book.

Heart took the stage in the newly named Chumash arena for a night of 80's rock!

Btw, Heart did an unbelievable job. It's great when you go to a show and you dont even feel like you're getting an "opening act", but you feel like you're getting two legit shows. And being the cheapest seats were $50, when you include fair admission, I like that A LOT!

Journey took the stage after it was dark, and this new lead singer, Arnel Pineda, is just insane good. In case you don't know, Pineda was actually spotted on youtube singing Journey songs with his cover band (The Zoo) by Journey band member Neal Schon. That's how he got hired to the band.

In my opinion, he sounds on par if not better than Steve Perry.

My wife Cathy and I got to our seats just before Journey came on, and you're never going to guess who I sat next to....KKFX Fox 11 First at 10 news anchor Arturo Santiago. I know...I don't believe me. Proof.

Far to the left is Arturo's lovely wife Sherry. Below some more pics from the night.

I really need to bring a real camera to the fair tonight. My blackberry just ain't cuttin it! All in all, I'm not sure another act is going to be able to top what we saw last night. Tim McGraw will have his chance this Sunday. I will likely not be able to go to the Tim show, but if you want to email me pics from your night, I can post them here!

I wish I took more pics of the show but I was really blown away with how amzing her voice is live.

I wish I took more pics period.

One pic is of Carrie singing All American Girl with a Central Coast 6 year old that she brought on stage.
The little girl was really shy when Carrie asked her a handful of "kid" questions like, "Are you having fun?" , "Are you looking forward to school," etc. Carrie would put the mic in front of her so she could sing, but the girl would get shy. What I loved was that when Carrie would bring that mic back and sing herself, you could see the 6 year old singing along, and knowing each and every word of the song.

The other pic is the official photographer of the Mid State Fair, Brittany App. She is a friend, and an absolute genius when it comes to capturing a moment on film. Any cool shot you have seen from the fair, from people to concerts, she has snapped it.

The final shot was a really cute kid who obviosuly wasn't enjoying the show as much as I was, but he was wearing an LA Dodgers hat so I forgave him for sleeping during the show.

All in all, a great perfomance. Props to the Mid State Fair for opening up the fair with CMA Entertainer Of The Year.

The star of Rascal Flatts' new video: THE CENTRAL COAST

Check out the the video for the new Rascal Flatts single, "Summer Nights"! I have to admit, it took a while for the song to grow on me, but after watching the video, I am sold! The Central Coast is featured the entire time, as it was filmed at Pismo Beach, and on the Oceano Dunes. The scenery is second to more ways then one. Watch and see if you agree.

A Primate the Prime Suspect?

This couple is convinced a monkey was trained to burglarize their plant nursery. Check out the video and judge for yourself! Also check the link below the video for the full story.
