Tornado Smashes Through Revere, Massachusetts!

What a shock! Suffolk county usually doesn’t get tornadoes. This morning was different at 9:30 am when a tornado suddenly appeared and ripped up at least 65 buildings that were either homes or businesses. Luckily, no one was seriously injured or killed. Unfortunately, 13 buildings have been declared uninhabitable.

The tornado was in the EF2 stage, which means the winds were going at 120 miles per hour. Revere is just north of Boston which is part of Suffolk county. Since 1950, the weather service has been recording tornadoes. This is the first time one hit Suffolk County.

Thor is now The Goddess of Thunder

Seems like Thor, the Asgardian God of Thunder, is following in the footsteps of his younger brother Loki. He’s going to turn into a woman because he is no longer worthy to use the hammer Mjolnir. At least, that is what Marvel Comics is saying. A couple of years ago, Loki turned himself into a woman. Wonder how their father, Odin, is going to react.

Didn’t they do this 25 years ago with Storm, one of the female members of the X-Men? I recall that he got her hands on Thor’s hammer and became the Goddess of Thunder for awhile.

I wonder what Marvel will do next. Make Wolverine into a high school guidance counselor? Spider-Man deciding to see a shrink? Namor the Sub-Mariner going to anger management sessions?

Boston To Celebrate Independence Day on July 3!

Tropical Storm Arthur is changing a lot of people’s plans this weekend. In Boston, the annual 4th of July celebration is going to held on July 3 tomorrow night, instead of Friday night. This is to avoid to the tropical storm that is going up the East Coast on Friday.

I guess it’s better safe than sorry now. There might be hurricane winds by Friday night.

Btw, the Beach Boys are among the special guests this year.

Peter Rodger: A Clueless Father Until It Was Too Late

#ABC 20/20
I just watched the 20/20 TV interview of Peter Rodger, the father of mass murderer Elliot Rodger, this evening. He didn’t know what was going on in his son’s mind during the many years that he was having problems with socializing and relationships. He actually thought that letting him go to college was a good solution to his son’s mental problems.

I agree with Peter Rodger when he talked about the mental health care system in this country. I have to admit that it is terrible, just based on my own experience. When I was in my mid-20s, I was misdiagnosed with Intermittent Explosive Disorder and was prescribed a medication called Lithium. The therapy I got was very unhelpful because I was really a person with undiagnosed Asperger’s Syndrome.

At the end of the interview, I feel like there are parents who are unaware that they are raising a killer under their own roof. I only wish there was some sort of prevention of the tragedy that happened in Santa Barbara more than a month ago.

I hope something from this TV interview will stop the next massacre from happening.

A Long Distance Dedication to Casey Kasem

I wrote about his passing on my Outside In Blog tonight. I felt I should put this song on my Uncommon Bostonian blog because I have already written about Casey last month. As we all know, Casey had the saying, “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.” Now, he’s among the stars as of Sunday morning, June 15.

I thought this song is a good dedication to Casey.

Deadly Shooting on a College Campus in Seattle

Shocking news about another lone shooter attacking a college campus. This time it’s in Seattle. One person has been killed while three others wounded. This time, the shooter was taken alive. A student was able to stop him while he was reloading.

It’s barely been two weeks since the Santa Barbara shooting and stabbing spree where the shooter took his own life after killing others. Others are wondering what sets them down this path.

Why are the young men in our country doing this? Is it the violent culture that is seen in television, movies, and video games? Or is it something else altogether?

Wish I knew the answers.

Bill Murray Crashes Bachelor Party!

It sounds like a scene from a Wes Anderson movie with Bill Murray appearing in a bachelor party in South Carolina. Not only did he attend this party but he gave them this advice:

“Take that person and travel around the world. Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world, and go to places that are hard to go to and hard to get out of. And if when you come back to JFK, when you land in JFK, and you’re still in love with that person, get married at the airport.”

Murray makes it sound so simple! :-)

Sad News! Lost 45s No Longer on WROR in Boston!

Luckily, you can hear Barry Scott’s the Lost 45s at his website.
http://lost45s.com/

The idiots at WROR-FM recently cancelled Barry Scott’s show, the Lost 45s, a couple of weeks ago to the shock of many fans (like me). His show has been a tradition on Sunday nights for many years since the early 1980s. Barry started the show at Emerson College (I am also a fellow Emersonian like Barry. I attended the college around the same time he did). It has always been a hit for many in the Boston area. People love the music of the past decades. There is an audience for it.

So, what happened? Some coporate idiot took it off the air! For shame, WROR! For shame!

Where is Casey Kasem?

His children would love to know where their father, Casey Kasem, the legendary disc jockey of America Top 40 radio show and the voice of Shaggy on the Scooby Doo cartoons, is right now. Casey Kasem has been suffering from advanced Parkinson’s and is believed to be living in an Indian reservation in Washington State. His second wife, Jean, is handling his care, but his children from a previous marriage have had the hardest time trying to see him or even have a look at his medical records. A judge is wondering about where Casey is right now.

Donald Sterling Banned for Life from NBA

Good Riddance!

I have no idea how this person was running around loose with his racist attitudes and owning a major basketball team for more than 30 years. At least, he was caught and severely punished for his rant. He’s not even allowed to go to NBA games anymore.

Sterling was also fined 2.5 million dollars and is going to be forced to sell the LA Clippers franchise in the near future. I hope the next owner of the Clippers is a decent human being.
