The Biggest Loser
Marianne is off in NYC today so Wease's wife Doreen is sitting in today.
Last night Wease was at Jenny Craig for the finals of "The Biggest Loser" contest, and winner Pat Finch stopped by first thing this morning to pick up a prize Wease promised her. She had lost 10% of her body weight in only 8 weeks, and on a steady pace to her final goal.
We also discuss the sad story of the teenage found dead in the water at Genesee Valley Park. Hopefully more details will emerge because right now things sound suspicious.
Tools With Sports
Baseball is hoping to speed up the game by instituting new replay rules. Doreen asks if they'll be using umpires as the judges... Wease says, no they'll be using randoom fans off the street... Doreen isn't amused, but Billy thought it was pretty funny.
Bills play the Vikings in preseason tonight, and the game is blacked out on local TV. Kevin Kolb is starting at QB, but Tools says he doesn't no any fans excited about Kolb, and want the QB of the future EJ Manuel.
We get to play John's favorite bit, The Elvis Tapes, because Elvis Presley dies on this date in 1977.
Marshall Fine Movie Reviews
Jobs- Ashton Kutcher is Apple genius Steve Jobs, and Josh Gad from Broadway's "Book of Mormon" plays Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak.
The movie opens with them making the first personal home computer in Steve's garage, and covers their struggles to get it to market, Wozniak leaving Apple, Jobs losing his company, and his victorious return before the invention of the iPod.
Marsh doesn't think Kutcher did a very good job in his role, and hurts the movie. Plus it oversimplifies Jobs' life and accomplishments.
Kick Ass 2...
Aaron Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz are back as Kick-Ass and Hit Girl, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse is the villain, who now calls himself Mother[Effer]. He wants revenge for the death of his father, so he puts a hit out on Kick-Ass and all the other wannabe superheroes.
Jim Carrey is one of the vigilantes, but he doesn't have a lot of screen time. He leads a group called Justice Forever that teams up with Kick-Ass. Marshall hated this movie, bur also didn't like the first one... didn't find it exciting or funny.
Forest Whitaker plays a White House butler who quietly influences civil rights policy while serving under seven presidents over three decades . . . even as his own son is endangered during the civil rights movement. It's based on a book and inspired by a true story.
Oprah returned to acting to play his wife. And the rest of the cast includes Robin Williams as Eisenhower, James Marsden as JFK, Liv Schrieber as Lyndon Johnson, John Cusack as Nixon, and Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan.
Jane Fonda got to play Nancy Reagan . . . despite their differences in politics . . . and Minka Kelly is Jackie Kennedy. Mariah Carey, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, and Lenny Kravitz are also in it.
WWE Superstar Comes Out
WWE Superstar DARREN YOUNG came out of the closet to one of the paparazzi at LAX. The guy asked Darren if a gay wrestler could make it in the WWE, and he said, quote, "Absolutely, look at me. I'm a WWE superstar and to be honest with you, I'll tell you right now, I'm gay. And I'm happy. I'm very happy." The WWE and several of its wrestlers have since issued statements of support.
As a wrestling fan Billy tells Wease about some wrestlers that had gay characters, like Gold Dust, and Adrian Adonis. We wonder if Darren's homosexuality will be written into his character.

Yahoo! recently held an online, bracket-style tournament to determine The Greatest Summer Song of All Time . . . and when it was all said and done, THE BEACH BOYS' "Surfin' USA" came out on top.

In addition to "Margaritaville" and "Vacation", to make it to the end, "Surfin' USA" had to beat "Wipeout", by THE SURFARIS, "In the Summertime" by MUNGO JERRY, and "Summer Nights" from the "Grease" soundtrack.
Take a peek at how hot Katy Perry is...
Wease Vs. Doreen
While Wease was in Chicago for morning show bootcamp alst week he met a woman that works at the Bunny Ranch, and Wease has been getting crap from Doreen since. She said she was sick to her stomach over pictures that Marianne took of Wease and sex worker Alana Luv.
Listeners have many comments on Doreen's jealousy... c'mon where's Wease goin'? He wasn't jealous when this picture of Doreen from the Keith Urban concert showed up on his phone...
Your Cell Phone Is Making You Ugly
For most of us, our phone is the first and last thing we look at every day. And that's bad . . . because it might be making you UGLY.
Yahoo just released a list of five issues that are supposedly caused by your phone. Listen up . . .
1. Dark Circles Under Your Eyes. Studies show that cell phone screens emit radiation that causes headaches and keeps you awake. And a lack of sleep can create dark circles under your eyes, stress, and depression.
So experts say that if you HAVE to look at your phone while you're in bed, you should dim the brightness setting. And hold it at least 14 inches from your face. Hopefully that won't make your arm tired . . .
2. Crow's Feet. If you squint when you read email, web pages, or ANYTHING on your phone, you're causing wrinkles. So either train your face NOT to squint, or switch to a larger font.
3. Acne. Your cell phone has 18 times more bacteria on it than the average toilet handle. And you press it up against your face ALL DAY. So it's easy for germs to get on your skin, where they can cause break-outs and infections.
Experts say you should swab your phone with alcohol at least once a day. Or you can buy special cell phone sanitizer for about $50 bucks. Or just use a cloth.
4. Turkey Neck. Also known as "text neck." You get it from looking down at your cell phone for any reason. If your jawline starts to sag, the only cure is surgery. So quit looking down at your phone.
Or you could try holding it 14 inches in front of your face every time you use it . . .
5. Bloodshot Eyes. No one looks good with red eyes, but if you stare at your cell phone for hours you'll end up with swollen, dilated blood vessels. So don't look at your phone unless you absolutely have to. And use eye drops.
The Wrecking Crew
We're joined in studio by filmmaker Denny Tedesco. Denny has made a movie called The Wrecking Crew, about the great musician that played on most of the great pop hits of the 60's... from the Byrds to the Beach Boys to Sinatra. Denny's dad Tommy was a guitar player in this group of musicians, which included Glen Campbell, Leon Russell, Dr. John, drummer Hal Blaine, Sonny Bono, and many more.
Marianne and Pauly will both be back, returning the team to full strength. Stories of everyone's weekends, news, dick jokes, and much more. It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice. Have a great weekend.
