Ken Carr on TV two nights a week!

I have been hosting the Mega Movie on the CW Tucson Channel 58 on Saturday nights at 9 p.m. for most of this year.

An exciting announcement: I will be on Saturdays AND Sundays starting next weekend 9/26-27!

The Mega Movie will now be on Saturdays 9-11 p.m. and also on Sundays from 7-9 p.m. I have about three minutes total of screen time during the two hour movie during commercial breaks. It's a different movie each night.

Next weekend's movies:
Saturday: The Legend of Bagger Vance starring Will Smith
Sunday: One True Thing starring Meryl Streep

I hope you watch! :)

Random Thursday

Brandon called me tonight. His 1 year old son (Brandon Jr.) has contracted a MRSA infection. They put little Brandon under tonight to surgically remove the infected area on his leg. Then he has to remain in the hospital for ten days while they monitor to make sure they got all of the infection. Scary stuff.

Andres texted me tonight and told me he got a DUI last week. He has a heavy foot and got stopped for speeding and they smelled the margaritas he had on his breath. DUI's in Arizona are no joke. They now require everyone who gets a DUI regardless of blood alcohol level to have an interlock device in their car for a year. Two engineers who work here have them.

Clint sent me a picture of his foot last night. He got off work, went to a karaoke bar, then to a house party in Seattle. The house party guests included a guy who does tattoos. He got tattoos on his feet! One foot says "stripper", the other says "friends". Apparently "Stripper Friends" is a song by Tila Tequila. It's never good to get tattoos when you're drunk (I don't have any tattoos). You end up with stupid stuff like "Stripper Friends".

I rescued Darla's pizza slice shaped Tupperware from the station kitchen. She e-mailed me earlier tonight and asked me to look for it. I doubt I'll get a brownie point for it but I try to be a good guy. Maybe I'll get a pizza point instead.

As for me, it's another night of listening to the police scanner online at my desk while scheduling music for the radio station. Its what I do many nights. Just a little man with a giant job.

Brandon's visit

My best friend Brandon paid me a visit this weekend. He left earlier tonight.

He lives in Stockton, California and because he's married with children it's usually easier for me to travel there than him here. Last time he came to see me in Tucson was February 2002.

He flew in Saturday morning. I took him to the Pima Air and Space Museum (I hadn't been there before either). It was extremely interesting. He hates flying but loves aviation. Go figure.

Saturday night we went to Cosmic Bingo at Casino Del Sol and Anth also came with. Drag queen Lucinda Holliday hosts. She's awesome. We didn't win anything but stayed afterward and tried to win at slots and that wasn't successful either.

Sunday was a chill day. Silver Mine Subs delivered lunch, Brandon watched NFL football on his laptop, and then we grabbed some dinner and drinks at Maloney's and dropped Anth off so he could get some homework done.

I gave Brandon a tour of the radio/TV station and then we went for a few more drinks. He seemed to find the broadcast building pretty awesome.

The weekend ended with lunch today (yes, shocking, but I actually took a personal day off today) at El Charro and then dropped him at the airport.

It was lots of fun to have him here.

The sad moment of the weekend came when he called me when he landed in Sacramento to inform me that Southwest Airlines lost his checked bag. Hopefully his underwear didn't end up in Cleveland!
