Yes, every week for about the past year, I have found, what I believe is a good way to make the week go by faster.Â Whats the secret?Â Have a weekly theme song!Â Find a song that you want to listen to everyday for a week straight, and think of it as your montage music.
Let me explain... I myself am a HUGE 80's buff, epically movies, and what is in EVERY 1980' s movie? A MONTAGE! You know what I'm talking about, the musical scene that takes place when the character seems like he is a loss cause,Â training and getting pumped for a big event, or even if the cast of characters are building some stupid robot or cleaning some kind of warehouse.
If you are feeling really crazy, like myself, then you can even pick TWO musical montages for your week.Â Because if your not aware, almost all 80's movies have TWO montages!Â If your unfamiliar with musical montages, or 80's movies, or you think I'm absolutely insane, just try and follow me.
Lets take my week for example.Â Come Monday, I wasn't feeling too great, and through the week might take too long, and thus this bummed me out.Â Throughout the week I was having some troubling times, so to help me out I picked my first musical montage song for the week, a sad song: Jolene by Dolly Parton.Â The song is sad, miserable, and depressing.Â Take a listen...Jolene
Granted this song is about a woman losing her man to another woman, and I understand that, but before you get all these thoughts about Crockett, let me explain...again.Â Miss. Parton here, has true sadness embedded within her voice.Â The misery she bellows out, is comparable to how I was feeling to the upcoming week.
As the week went on, I was finding myself down in the dumps, UNTIL yesterday.Â A spark of new life filled my body, I felt stronger, powerful, more confident!Â At that exact moment I knew this week would end up being great, and then it hit me.... THE SECOND MUSICAL MONTAGE!
A song that has all those feelings, buried deep within the vocal range, and when I listened to that song, I knew this was the motivational montage.Â Have a listen to the second montage by 80's metal band, MANOWAR:Â Fighting the World
So listeners of the Wake Up Call and Froggy 101, go into next week, with a new outlook on the week, try and find the perfect montage music, if you know your going to have a great week, then you really only need one, but don't stop at one or two, go crazy and have as many as you want!Â Glad I could help!
So we've been getting a slew of calls, asking question regarding who I am, what I do, and when you will get a chance to meet me.Â Well how about this for a sweet deal?Â Tomorrow will be the perfect opportunity, to not only meet me, BUT, get a chance to win yourself some Toby Keith tickets!
Here's the deal, tomorrow morning, I'm going to be at, The Viewmont Mall (6:00-6:30), The Wyoming Valley Mall (7:00-7:30), and Wendy's in Pittston (8:00-8:30), wearing a very over sized attire, and within this ridiculous outfit, there will be envelopes stuffed into the pockets.Â Each one of these envelopes will have a different prizeÂ inside.Â All you have to do, is reach into a pocket, grab an envelope, and see what you've won!
This is how we get a quick escape while on the job:
Jen of Serenity Wellness & Dance Center in Luzerne dropped off a custom-made Hula Hoop (green, yellow and white for FROGGY...thanks, Jen!!!...yup, they have hula hoop exercise classes).Â I just happened to beÂ leaving the building with the thingÂ slung over my arm like a purse (cause it just seems so natural to be walking around an office with a ginormous ring!), when I was stopped by Crockett and his entourage in the lobby.Â He boasted howÂ gifted he is in theÂ Hula craft, so I told him to put his money where his hip is.
I love our Froggy crew.Â I witnessed a gatheringÂ of staff to cheer Crockett on inÂ the random hulahoop hijinx; I must say, he's quite the skilled hip shaker.
Plus, the image of Crock's Hawaii print boxers - hanging on for dear life --Â poetically fitting the impromptu occasion.
We have our fun on the job here at FROGGY ... what do you do to keep your sanity?
Share the stress relief with The Wake Up Call with Eric & Selena Friday morn at 6:15....#1-800-570-1013
My son just turned 5 years old. He's had lots of friends in pre-school, both boys and girls, but this year he has pretty much completely stopped playing with the boys and is only interested in playing with his little girl friends.
On top of that, one of the little girls recently left some of her Barbies over at our house and now he plays with them 24 hours a day and doesn't want to give them back. He even told his father that he wished Barbie's clothes were big enough to fit him!
I don't really know if this is a phase or if I should intervene or if I'm even supposed to care at all.
Eric and Crockett were a little taken aback by the boy wanting to dress like Barbie, but if Rusty Fender can do it, why can't this innocent kid?
My cousin did the same thing when he was 5, insisting on wearing his mom's costume jewelry.Â Â He would throw a fit whenever his dad would try to take the necklaces off him.Â His mom would tell the father to let it go; he's just exploring.Â That cross-dressing lilâ boy is now a well-grounded, respectable 23-year-old man who is in a healthy relationship with his girlfriend.Â
...and I bet has no trepidation buying nice jewelry for his lovely lady!
Kids are sponges.Â They want to learn and explore new things. A Barbie is not going to harm a boy; if anything, it will make them more inquisitive about girls. Â
Just make sure you have that talk eventually with your son that MOST girls donât grown up to look like her!
Give your son the Barbie.Â And why stop there? Â Throw in an Easy Bake Oven.Â Who says Iâm the one that has to be the cook in the relationship?!Â Girls DO love a man that cooks.
After IBM's supercomputer crushed it's champion competition on Jeopardy this week, another computer has emerged.Â Are they taking over the earth?!Â You may have a head start over this new one...it was programmed by Crockett.
Keep in mind, though, he WILL destroy you on any questions regarding 80's pop culture, 80'sÂ hair metalÂ bands, and wrestling.
Take Crockettron 3.0 on to win Jack Ingram tix during Friday's 7am hour with The Wake Up Call!
Crockett claims it tasted like baby powder. Must have eaten the absorbent underwear brand.
Two Houston chefs took their expertise to the next level and did their own edible gift taste test. Hereâs how they ranked them from WORST to BEST:
WORST: Edible strawberry undies: ââ¦worst cotton-candy ever.â I guess Crockettâs palate isnât too far off from these chefs.
BAD: Edible body paint: âtaste like the barium shake you drink before a medical testâ
BETTER: Edible candy bra: âThey do get stale if they sit on the shelf for a whileâ
BEST: Lovers body pen set: Lets you write in chocolate. âTaste like Nestleâs strawberry milkâ
Come see our Crockett decked out for Thanksgiving!! Don't buy into his crabby face...he loves it!
