Spreading Christmas Joy with a Giant Perogy

I hit the warm insides of Downtown Winnipeg with Patrusia Perogy and gave away dozens of perogies to celebrate Ukrainian Christmas.  Check out the vid!

It only took 24 hours...

For Ted Williams, the homeless man with the amazing voice to get over 3 million youtube hits, and a number of job offers including an offer of a job and a house from the Cleveland Cavaliers. 
It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside to see good things happen to this guy and this truly shows you the power of the internet.  One minute the guy is on the side of the road talking into a camera for some spare change, and the next thing he knows, he is on the Early Show on CBS being interviewed with job offers on the table.
The video blew up yesterday and today, he's on tv.  AMAZING!
Check out the interview from this morning.  Love the new dew Ted!

The most adorable father/daughter cover song EVER!

This is possibly the most adorable father/daughter cover song in the history of the interwebs.
They are covering Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes great song "Home".
This video makes me wish I had a daughter.  I would form a sweet band with her and we could cover hipster doofus songs like this.
Until that day comes, I will just make this my Winter Jam for 2011. 

The Greatest Radio Voice NOT on the Radio

Posted By: Young Mike · 1/4/2011 1:28:00 PM
Meet Ted.  He lives in Ohio.  He is homeless.  Sometimes people fall on bad luck in their lives or they make bad decisions which lead them to homelessness.  The latter is the reason why Ted is homeless.  But he`s cleaned up his life and is now 2 years sober.
The best part about Ted is that he could walk into any radio station in the world and be hired on the spot.  His voice is amazing.  He could do movie trailers, voices in cartoons, anything using his voice!
He loves radio.  It`s what he wants to do.  Someone please hire this man!!
I hope that thanks to this video, 2011 becomes the year of Ted.  He deserves it!
