Have You Been ‘Mooned’? The New Texting Term You Should Probably Know!

mooning-text

(PCM) Many of us are inundated with tons of text messages each and everyday and unfortunately some of those text may be from those we don’t exactly wish to hear from. “Mooning” was created as a way to silence conversations with those particular individuals that you may not want to deal with at this particular moment.

Much like “ghosting” which is cutting off all communication with a certain individual or multiple individuals, “mooning” is used to temporary silence someone whose conversation may be annoying or you consider that person to be unimportant. “Mooning” is considered like putting someone on mute and ignoring them for a period of time.

Sadly, none of us can truly know if we’ve been “mooned” or not. You can still text an individual who has mooned you, but their phone will not show them any type of notification, make noise, or light up when you send them a message. If someone has blocked your number you will receive a notification, however if you have been “mooned” you may never really know, that is unless the person finally decides to respond and be honest.

Chances of someone actually letting another person know they are being a pest are slim to none, so perhaps after awhile of getting the silent treatment the person will eventually get the clue that they have been “mooned” and try to change their behavior pattern. We live in the day and age where people are not really forced to talk to one another face to face anymore, so hiding behind a phone screen is usually used to avoid confrontation and of course there is an app for that!

You Know The Pumpkin Spice Craze Has Gone Too Far When There Is Now A Pumpkin Spice Pizza!

pumpkin-spice-pizza1

(PCM) Can we say, yuck! Without a doubt the pumpkin spice trend has gone way to far when there is now a pumpkin spice flavored pizza. Seriously, who would even think of such as thing? The creator of The Pizza Shelf, Anthony Rotio, that’s who!

Rotio decided to jump on the pumpkin spice bandwagon and created what we believe to be the first pumpkin spice flavored pizza. It contains pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, honey, fior di latte, ricotta, and sage. If you are a fan of pumpkin spice than this will be your dream come true, but those of us pumpkin spice haters out there, this is just one more reason to further despise the season.

It also appears that Rotio, himself, is not a huge pumpkins spice fan, however he recently revealed to Cosmopolitan Magazine that he actually created the Pumpkin Spice pizza for this wife who is pumpkin spice flavor obsessed. Now there’s a loving husband right there! Props, to you Rotio!

Would you try Pumpkin Spice flavored pizza?  Are you a fan of Pumpkin Spice in general?  Let us know the oddest Pumpkin Spice related item you’ve discovered this season!

Chubby Checker Talks 50 Years Of The Twist and the #TwistChallenge

chubbycheckertwistjpg(PCM) On Saturday, August 6, 1960, Dick Clark presented Chubby Checker and The Twist and the dance floor changed forever. In addition to revolutionizing the way that people would dance and spawning countless renditions of twisting, Chubby Checker’s The Twist still currently holds the title of being the number one song of all time.

The Twist changed the way we dance, and much of popular culture as we know it today!

September 21 celebrates National Twist Day. To further the celebration Chubby Checker has partnered up with Mascots For A Cure, a very special non-profit, to launch the #TwistChallenge.  The challenge will be in a similar vein to the ice bucket challenge and raise funds and awareness to twist away childhood cancer through challenges, videos, social and traditional media.

We are challenging everyone to do The Twist and post their images and video on their social media accounts using the hashtag #TwistChallenge and of course support the children and their families by donating to this wonderful cause to help bring an end to childhood cancer once and for all. The first Mascots helping us with the Twist Challenge include Jurdy (the Hero of Happy-ness), The Philly Phanatic, Wally from the Boston Red Sox, Clark from the Chicago Cubs, the Oriole Bird, Screech from the Nationals, Bernie Brewer, Pittsburgh’s Jolly Rodger, Poe from the Baltimore Ravens, Thunderbug from Tampa Bay, Hugo the Hornet, YoUDee, Rocky Bluewinkle, 76ers Franklin and MFAC’s own Sir Roland BraveHeart.

We had a chance to catch up with the legendary Chubby Checker to discuss the #TwistChallenge, over 50 years of twisting, his legacy and more.

When asked about how he became involved with Mascots For A Cure and the idea for the #TwistChallenge Chubby tells us “My publicist Shelly Field was contacted by Mascots For A Cure and they said they wanted to use The Twist and told her the idea for the #TwistChallenge. She said ‘Let’s talk to Chubby about it’ and I thought it was a great idea. It’s all about childhood cancer and children having cancer. That’s very serious stuff.”

“Years ago, back in 1965, I believe. Danny Thomas, who was alive then, and he had St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. I did a charity tour for him and I was concerned and said ‘Danny, why are you doing this?’ and he says ‘Chubby, we have to leave something when we die and children being sick, especially with cancer, it disturbs me.’ He said ‘when I go on stage or go on TV and do whatever I do all I can think about is these children, these young children that have cancer. So, I’ve lent my life to that, so when I leave here it will be for them’.”

“Usually I’m not involved with charity that much, I give to charity all the time, but to get involved, this is very serious stuff. When you see a young child and I was in the hospital several years ago when I saw a kid and this guy, his kid had cancer, and I used to work at a chicken market on 9th St. and while I was working there for three or four years, this young boy every year or so, he would come with his father and he would have a bandage wrapped around his head because he had some brain tumors that were cancerous. They were able to raise 220 million dollars for ALS when they were throwing water on everybody with the #IceBucketChallenge and I hope we are just as successful with raising funds and awareness with the #TwistChallenge as well.”chubby01We were curious to know if Chubby ever expected The Twist to take off the way that it did spawning countless twist songs and multiple dance crazes all over the world. He revealed, “We never saw it coming. I remember I didn’t even want to do the song. We did the fourth cut and there was a lyric saying ‘Daddy’s sleeping and Mama ain’t around’ and Dave Apple who produced the song said ‘Chubby, there’s a flat note on ‘Daddy’s sleeping’  and I said ‘Dave, it’s almost time to graduate high school, my grades are terrible. I’m going to go home and try to catch up, Dave, they’ll never know.’ (laughs)  Little did I know!

Chubby told us about his newly remixed and remastered version of The Twist saying “We went in the studio and we took the songs we recorded in 1970, ’71, ’72 and ’73 and what we did was we went and remastered every bit of it. In other words, we took each track that we had, some of which were recorded in the 1960’s and on maybe only ten or twelve tracks and then ten years later we went in the studio and recorded it again and the reason I did that was because the original ones were not being released and we wanted to public to have the songs, so we went in and recorded them again.”

“This time we had 35 or 40 tracks. We didn’t know that in the future we could take Chubby’s voice and just take his voice and the other tracks that were from 1974 and put new musicians in the back and have a whole new song (laughs). We didn’t do that, but we just made it… better.  It sounds the same but it just sounds better. It records, plays and acts with all the new music and new technology that is out here.”

“We formatted The Twist to match the new equipment that you now here the music on the radio. It’s just better and it jumps out at you. It’s better than the other one, sounds the same… but better.”chubby04We asked Chubby to reminiscence a bit and take us through what it was like getting that call to perform on the show.  He reveals with a laugh, “We didn’t know. Bandstand was Bandstand and everybody loved it. At 3:30pm in the afternoon there was no one on the streets because they were watching Bandstand. I don’t think people realized that when Chubby Checker came on American Bandstand, that Bandstand changed that day. It was never going to be the same again because dancing changed on that show.”

“But to answer your question, when I was on American Bandstand what was it like, I was scared to death, I was nervous, I was in the number one spot in the world and I didn’t know at that time that I was going to magnify the number one show in the world into MTV and everything else. We didn’t know that, but we did that. I talk about it and I’m glad you have this and you can record it because long after I’m gone out of here, someone can play this and go back to the roots of what the dance floor became because of Chubby Checker started the fateful day on American Bandstand. Everybody was looking, everybody was there, the whole world was watching, and dancing was transformed that day.”

Chubby described his introduction to the world, and how Ernest Evans, the man, became Chubby Checker, The Legend. A legend who could refer to himself in the third person without skipping a beat. “The minute Chubby came on Bandstand, Dick Clark was already a big star, but when Chubby Checker came on Bandstand, and I want people to listen to this, as I have a few people out there who are negative Chubby Checkers, but Dick Clark was already a big star when Chubby Checker came on American Bandstand and I say this and I quote ‘When Chubby Checker came on American Bandstand, Dick Clark became a super monster star’  and Bandstand became something it never was before because dancing changed forever.”chubby03It wasn’t just the dance itself that made The Twist a hit… there was something else, and Chubby told me the secret… “I’m looking at the girl, the girl’s looking at me and we’re not touching, but we’re doing something. We’re exploring our sexuality while being fully dressed, what’s more hotter than that?”

We tell Chubby just how excited we are to participate in the #TwistChallenge and urge everyone to participate to support this wonderful cause. Chubby reminds us “Don’t be thinking about The Twist, you be thinking about those kids that have cancer. That’s what it’s all about. You think about those children out there that have cancer and their families and their futures. The futures of these children who have been touched by this dreadful, dreadful disease and pray for them. Ask God to put his hands upon these children and heal them.”

Chubby was a mix of warmth and confidence in our conversation. It’s been said that ‘it ain’t bragging if you can pull it off” and Chubby pulled it off. He changed the world in both music and popular culture. 50-odd years after reaching the number one spot on the Billboard Pop and Dance charts, the world is still twisting. The Twist has been the biggest “#1 Song” according to Billboard magazine for 55 years. He can stand tall, and dance with confidence, and he can brag if he wants to. He’s one of a very small number of people who made the world a more fun and better place.chubby02Chubby is also true road warrior and we were curious what some of his plans were for the future. He tells us, “We’re all over the place. We’re going to cruise in Australia and then we are moving around out to Las Vegas and we are going to be in Kansas and guess where we are going to be on the 16th of November? Dick Clark’s American Bandstand in Branson, Missouri. How about that? (laughs)

“I can never shake that man. He’ll be with me forever. His wife gave me the name Checker, she put Checker on the Chubby, so I’m going to be with this guy forever and ever and my birthday is on the 3rd of October and we’ll be in Bilouxi, Mississippi on the 1st of October and the 8th and 9th we’re going to be in California at some of the casinos there.”

“Galveston, Texas is on October 15th and we are even visiting Newbury, South Carolina, the closest I can get to where I was born and on the 25th of October we’re going to be in The Villages in Florida. We are moving around and everything is wonderful. I’ve got my band with me and we’ve got the bus, but you know something Kristyn, I’m a happy guy, everything’s cool. Remember to think about those kids, I love you sweetheart!”

Chubby Checker called me ‘sweetheart!’ :swoon::

Patient Discovers That Doctors Accidentally Connected Her Colon To Her Vagina

colon-victim

(PCM) Yes, we can only imagine that this is just about as awful as it gets!  A Macedonian woman by the name of Jasminka Velkovska underwent surgery three years ago to remove cancer from her colon, however when reattaching her colon, they somehow attached it her vagina by mistake.

That is quite a mistake if you ask us!  We can’t even fathom how this type of thing could have possibly happened. Velkovska said she felt a bit uncomfortable after the procedure and slowly began to notice a problem when she began passing gas out of her vagina. She told the local news “While I was recovering, doctors came and asked me if I was passing gas, and I said yes, but it’s coming out of my vagina. They told me that it would soon pass and I would be ok, but stuff had started to come out of my vagina and I was feeling scared and it was all very unpleasant.”

The doctors at the hospital told her she would be fine and it would eventually pass, but boy were they ever wrong. After agreeing to perform an X-ray to get a better look at what was going on the hospital discovered their mistake. The woman’s colon was now connected to her vagina. This sounds like something straight out of a horror film!

To top it off they didn’t even manage to remove the cancer and only agreed to compensate Velkovska a measly $33,000 dollars, outright refusing to pay the entire total. Velkovska is currently filing a lawsuit against the hospital for the full amount, as she has every right to pursue.

She truly deserves millions for that kind of mess up!

Ever Wonder Why Everyone Woman On TV Has The Same Hair? We’ve Got The Answer!

hairstyle

(PCM) If you are a avid television fan like us than you have probably taken notice that nearly everyone woman that graces the screen appears to share the same hair cut. Seriously, take a look. It’s mind-blowing.

We figured that there had to be some sort of logical reasoning behind this hair phenomenon and lo and behold Racked.com has actually discovered the answer to this puzzling mystery.  It actually has more to do with continuity and production than it does with actual fashion. By the women all sharing the same loose and face-framing style with slight curl at the ends, it allows those behind-the scenes to spend less time worrying if hair is the correct length or a piece is out of place, as the style allows for free movement.

Check out the video explanation below:

Always learning new things everyday! At least we have finally moved away for hairstyles like the Jennifer, the Farrah and the Angelina.

Everyone Is Talking About Corey Feldman’s Bizarre ‘Today Show’ Performance

corey-feldman1

(PCM) It appears that actor Corey Feldman fancies himself a musician these days. Actually, he has been trying to break into the mainstream music realm for quite a few years with limited success. He managed to release a few albums over the years and play a one-off gig here and there, but that was about it, that is until now!

The internet is buzzing about Feldman’s recent appearance on “The Today Show” as his performance was just about as bizarre as you would expect it to be, so much so, that we doubt NBC will even be releasing any additional video clips. Feldman claims that he is currently collaborating with Snoop Dogg on a new track called “Go 4 It”, which is perhaps why he was asked to appear on “The Today Show” in the first place.

Feldman, looking like a mix between Lord Voldemort and Michael Jackson, choppily danced robotically around the stage flanked by his band of women dressed as angels whom he referenced as “Corey’s Angels” (clever … really!).  Judging by the reactions people are having via social media, it appears that Feldman many have to hit the drawing board once again in an attempt to launch his music career.

He appeared to be taking this dead seriously, while those that were able to catch the performance thought the entire thing was utterly hilarious!  Check out the YouTube clips that surfaced below:
