Lovedrug Performs

On this week's podcast, one of our longtime favorite bands, Lovedrug, stops by the studio to perform a couple of songs from their latest album, Wild Blood. Be sure to check out the videos of their performance below. Plus, the legendary duo of Jesse Carey and Adam Smith joins us IN STUDIO for the entire podcast!

Jason & Alia Regier (they're Canadian) are our most generous listeners yet. The gauntlet has been thrown down, everybody else!

Question of the Week

What is the best celebrity pic that you've ever snuck with your phone?

The invention of the iPhone has brought us a lot of conveniences, but none more important than the ease of stalking celebrities and taking their photo. We've all had an experience where we've "pretended to be texting" while zooming in for the perfect stalker shot. So this week, we want to see your best smartphone-captured celebrity pics. And if you haven't been able to sneak a shot of a real celebrity, send us your best "kinda-looks-like" celebrity pic.

OK, so I don't have any good famous person sighting stories or pictures, but I wanted to point out that the review of Step Up Revolution reminds me of Rent.

I never saw Rent on Broadway, but I watched the movie. I must be getting old, too, because my reaction through the whole movie is that these bunch of moochers need to stop whining and pay the rent they owe their friend. And instead of blocking the real estate company from developing the building into a music studio, convince them to ALSO leave in some housing for the homeless.

Guys, seriously this was the 2nd best podcast you have done. Congratulations. Best was Tesh.

Oh man... I've not finished listening to the podcast, but I can tell you... The Ikea monkey is attacking me! Seriously! I work for the City of Kawartha Lakes in Ontario (1.5hrs north of Toronto). Yasmin Nakhuda, former owner of Darwin, the IKEA monkey, has stated she has plans to relocate to Kawartha Lakes as there are no restrictions on owning exotic animals. Ms. Nakhuda is currently in a legal battle to regain custody of the monkey who is now living at the Storybook Farm Primate Sanctuary in Sunderland, Ontario... So now, as I work for the call center for Kawartha Lakes, I'm subjected to all the monkey business calls! We should've taken Jesse's advice and dispatched of the monkey sooner... #monkeypocalypse

I must admit that after listening to you guys from the beginning (shark, first mention of dramatic chipmunk,etc) I stopped listening for a few years and just came back around and started listening again a few weeks ago. It was great to have Adam and Jesse in studio, just like old times!! But what struck me most when I came back a few weeks ago, is that you all are just as entertaining as you were in the old days. Loved the podcast this week and I love when you guys just talk, one upping each other all along the way. The Podcast always makes the commute to the office worthwhile.

I have a couple of pictures with celebrities. I'm a photographer, and as part of my job I get to cover events in South Florida. I don't usually ask the celebrities to pose for a picture with me, but lately I started to compose a collection of shots on instagram just to see how many people I can pose with in a year. Here are some pics: with "Pitbul"; Giuliana Rancic and Scott Kelby and Kari Jobe.
