Limping along

Quick note- I have 3 young kids, and not much time. Unfortunately, can’t keep up with Opie and Anthony as much as I’d like these days. I’ll always support Opie, and when I get a chance to post, I will. Anyone want to contribute, email me at momsforopie@hotmail.com.

Oscars Aftermath, Revolution of TV for moms and Podcasts

It’s 4ish, there is some quiet time in our house, and I put on my headphones to squeeze in some O&A while 1 kid is napping, and 2 are playing. Today was lap swim, pre-k dropoff, grocery shopping with 2 kids, pickup, lunch and hosting a “playdate”, that awful word, and now I’m here.

Seems like the boys enjoyed Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin. I have to admit, I tried doing the R&F twitter party and I really paid more attention to them than the Oscars, so don’t think I could really make an honest assesment.

I love O&A it is so unfiltered, and although I can’t listen to them with the kids around most of the time, I am praying that there is a revolution in TV shows that cater to moms. Can’t we have some honesty and some realistic talk on regular TV? Can we stop taking stuff so seriously? When you are used to O&A it is so hard to go back to regular TV. I think the only (family) sitcom I’m really enjoying is Modern Family and the only talk show I will watch is Oprah. God, I love Oprah, I’m not kidding, although that lady is soo filthy rich, she is authentic. So what else is out there?

Podcasts? oh there are so many, so how do you pick? Who has the time? I tried listening to Teh What Show and I absolutely love Silera when she’s on R&F but I couldn’t listen to a whole podcast, the time constraints kill me.. I need a filter for these podcasts, there is some gold in it but investing the hours to get there is a significant trade-off. I hope someone out there comes up with the highlights of these podcasts, seriously, some of them are good, but for those with kids, we get a limited time to listen to uncensored radio.

But before someone creates my utopia for watching the “Best of” podcasts, I bet this week’s Unlearn Show will be gold. Rich W., Cigars and Scotch, Big A, Silera and Alkey? This should be interesting folks. Tune in 7PM tomorrow 3/9/2010. If you can’t catch them live, they rerun the same show all week long.

If you made it through this babble, thanks, congrats, and have a great day-@momsforopie

The Stanley McDonald Fund

Support Stan!

Just found this site, through a facebook feed, as some friends are also fans of Ron & Fez, and East Side Dave.

Why do I support this cause?

It’s for a kid, that needs all the help he can get- For those that don’t know, Stanley McDonald, is ESD’s son, who suffers from pyloric stenosis. The surgery has set back Casey and Dave a few thousand and they could use the help on staying afloat. Here is the link for more info.

Why this kid?

I’m personally vested in the show- I’ve visited the studio a few times to see O&A and Ron & Fez. On those visits I have to say that Dave has always graciously treated fans/guests/audience members. I’m amazed how public he and his wife have been which has resulted in some great entertainment. His antics show that he is all in for the show, and well he ate shit, who would do that? Eventually this kid may need therapy to understand the antics his dad has performed, so those bills they’re going to have to handle as well that aren’t handled by the fund

I’m sure there are plenty of causes out there that deserve your money, so you can decide to ignore or send what you can.

Best,

A Kinder and Gentler XM Nation

 I’ts 7:29AM, on Friday, March 5th, Opie talks about Lynsi’s pregnancy, stuff that pokes out of the belly… it’s not “We’re due”…

“Do you realize I made a freaking spine today? I made eyeballs today.” – Lynsi according to Opie

Shit, Baby talk, yes, you will get alot of it.. and we will appreciate that you are going through it..

totally unrelated, here’s we are the world, let’s get some hits on this soon to be classic..

From this week:
Jimmy is a vulnerable and touched fellow from the hours of 6am- 7:30ish.. 

Opie Hughes continues to share some aspects of Lynsi’s pregnancy as thousands of parents recall their experiences. Looking forward to hearing Opie’s future attempts to lighten up his serious class.

I wish I could listen to more of this week, but the whole parenting gig makes it difficult, but what I heard was very entertaining, looking forward to catching up with the WOTW Countdown this weekend…
