DIO REPLACES OZZY IN "OSBOURNES" TV CAST
"BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA – In a surprise move this week, legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne has pulled out of “The Osbournes,” the runaway hit reality TV show starring his family. Citing personal differences, exhaustion, and an allergy to dog shit, Ozzy has decamped to his family’s original estate outside Birmingham, England, and he will not appear on the show’s next season.

Faced with a last-minute cast change of major proportions, the producers of the show, and executive producer Sharon Osbourne, have looked to metal history for guidance. Enter Ronnie James Dio, Ozzy’s replacement in Black Sabbath in 1980 and a recently-divorced metal icon. “Just as Sabbath continued on with two fine albums with Ronnie, so the show will grow and thrive with the Man On the Silver Mountain at the head of the table,” gushed producer Wiffley Snidegarb at a press conference."


A joke...yes, but pretty funny too. The site from which I pulled this - Infernalcombustion.com - is way funny. Check it out.

YESTERDAY'S MUSIC TODAY
The current DJ on WFMU is playing a set of 80s music - Haircut 100, Bow Wow Wow, Flock of Seagulls. This stuff still sounds cool and unique in a way that Creed will never fucking understand. And my God, Annabelle remains the most smoking hot under-age singer I've ever heard.
