What did you think of the final Presidential debate? Bill O’Reilly didn’t think much of it at all.
The first trailer for Iron Man 3 has been released, and it’s a doozy featuring Ben Kingsley as Tony Stark’s biggest foe, The Mandarin.
TAYLOR SWIFT is permeating the media this week promoting her album Red . . . so why not test your Taylor trivia with the 10 Things You Didn't Know About Taylor Swift.
#1.) She's an award-winning poet. In the fourth grade, Taylor's poem "Monster In My Closet" placed first in a national poetry contest. Here's the poem: "There's a monster in my closet and I don't know what to do / Have you ever seen him? / Has he ever pounced on you?"
#2.) Taylor's dad owns 3% of her record label. He was an early investor in Big Machine Records.
#3.) Taylor's brother Austin is a student at Vanderbilt University. He transferred from Notre Dame.
#4.) The DIXIE CHICKS were a major influence. There are others . . . but she ranks the Chicks way up there.
#5.) She wrote a novel when she was 12. It's 350 pages and it's DONE. (She only wrote it to make the rest of us feel like underachievers.)
#6.) She's sort of blind. When she's not wearing glasses, she's wearing contact lenses.
#7.) Her first job involved tons of bugs. She knocked praying mantis pods out of trees on her family's Christmas tree farm.
#8.) Taylor Swift was the first "Saturday Night Live" host to ever write their own monologue. It was song she wrote called "My Monologue Song".
#9.) The thought of a real tattoo actually terrifies her.
#10.) Taylor's grandmother on her mom's side was an opera singer. Taylor's grandma Marjorie Finlay was an "accomplished opera singer" . . . and Taylor looks EXACTLY like her. I swear. Look at the pic on today’s blog.
Also on today’s blog you’ll see pics of KATY PERRY’s vampire-themed party Last Friday Night (See what I did there?) to celebrate her 28th birthday.
Not everyone stuck to the vampire theme, though, including JOHN MAYER . . . who was dressed as a ZOMBIE hunter (Note John's fake nose and chin).
We end today’s blog with something just for Tom Terbrock (thanks to listener Eric): Chimps on ice!
