12 Year Old Girl Beaten While Neighbor Films

March 28, 2012

A man who filmed a group of girls attacking a 12-year-old has told Providence, Rhode Island, police that he thought it was just a prank.

The man is not being charged and, according to police, is not involved in the case sinche te video is no longer in his possession. As I’m sure you can imagine, the girl’s mom has stated that she is horrified that the man didn’t try to stop her daughter’s attack.

From CNN:

Two of the girls have been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy, and two others have been charged with simple assault and conspiracy, said Providence Police Sgt. Matthew Ryan.

The 12-year-old suffered two black eyes, a bruised nose and bite marks on her hands. Holly Gingerella, the girl’s mother, said, “My daughter is doing OK. She doesn’t look very good, but she’s a strong child.” She said her daughter has a shunt in her brain to aid with a medical problem, but the shunt was not damaged in the assault.

The man posted the video of the incident on YouTube, where he shows his face to the camera and describes the attack, “Kids are (expletive) sitting outside for like 20 minutes saying, ‘Don’t do this, don’t do that. You gotta keep going, you gotta keep fighting.’ They’re like planning it so they can just record it.” While he speaks, girls can be heard shouting in the background.

Mexico News Editor Found Decapitated

September 26, 2011

The editor of a Mexican newspaper was found dead, her body decapitated and with a note next to it.

Earlier this month, attackers left ominous threats mentioning two social media websites on signs beside mutilated bodies in northern Mexico. This appears to be yet another threat to journalists and citizens in Mexico who are reporting on cartel activities on social networking sites.

From CNN:

Maria Elizabeth Macias Castro, 39, was the editor in chief of the newspaper, Primera Hora.

Her body was found Saturday morning, according to the attorney general’s office in the northern Tamaulipas state. A message “attributed to a criminal group” was found next to her, the office said.

“The state government expresses its deepest condolences to the relatives and loved ones affected by these lamentable acts,” the office said, adding that it is investigating.

The Big Show Presents: An Introduction to Billy the Greek

July 24, 2011

…and now for the first time in 10 years…the return of “The Big Show”.

For your background, The Big Show was a radio program that appeared on KSUN 91.5 for more than 3 years featuring yours truly, “The Roaddawg Johnny Kreuz” along with my colleague and good friend “The Bad Ass Brett Anthony”.

The show came to an end back in May of 2001 but only recently have the tapes been discovered and put online for all of the world to hear. We always had a blast…that’s for sure!

Mind you, I did much of the writing for the show and created the many characters who appeared including “Billy the Greek” who became a weekly staple on the show. Let’s put it this way, he was created to be the prototypical “male chauvinist” and when you listen to the bits that he appeared on, you’d probably believe that the guy really acted this way in real life.

Anyways…here’s the first bit that I’m sharing. This was one of our very first episodes back in 1999 when we introduced Billy the Greek. As a disclaimer…most of the content on ALL of our broadcasts is for adult ears only as we do get a bit edgy/racy so listen at your own risk :)

Definitely better than a Casey Anthony radio program would have been :)

New Voice for the Aflac Duck

April 26, 2011

…and no it’s not Ben Affleck! It’s Dan McKeague, a 36-year-old father of three from suburban Minneapolis.

I’ll definitely miss Gilbert Gottfried and his voice. We’ll see if McKeague can fill his shoes!

From CNN Money:

McKeague, a sales manager at a local radio station with some experience doing voice overs, was one of the many hopeful celebrities, voice over artists and average Joes that submitted over 12,500 live and online auditions to provide the distinctive voice of the Aflac Duck.

In a video posted Tuesday on YouTube, the CEO of the Georgia-based company, Daniel Amos, and two other senior executives are shown offering the job to McKeague over the phone. McKeague, wearing a dark suit and tie, gratefully accepts the job from what appears to be his home.

What Will I Think Of Next…

May 8, 2010

I’m really thinking that I need to use my brain to come up with some more videos.

I have a lot of fun taking crazy ideas in my head and turning them into a short film.

You’ve seen my Cheaters: In N Out video (if not, keep clicking on the link so it will get a lot of hits) :)

Right now, I’m currently working on a script for a follow up…Should be fun!

For now…Don’t Stop Believin’

Sometimes I Wonder Where I Come Up With These Ideas…

March 30, 2010

So usually I would wait until Friday night to show you my new video (don’t worry…I’ll post it on the “Korner” on Friday), but I’m pretty proud of my latest work!

If you know anything about In N Out Burger, or the television program Cheaters, you should enjoy!

Please follow this link to view. If you get the chance, please give the video a rating and leave a comment letting me know what you think :) I’m having fun with this!

Don’t worry. I’m not giving up my “night” job as a blogger. You’ll still see news on Casey/Caylee Anthony, Natalee Holloway, politics, sports, music etc…I just need to show everyone the lighter side when I can.

Thanks!

Tsunami Warning Canceled in Hawaii

February 27, 2010

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has officially canceled the Tsunami warning which was issued for Hawaii earlier today.

While the Tsunami waves reached Hawaii at around 2 p.m. (PT), it doesn’t appear that any major damage has occurred.

Great news for the people living near the beaches. We should, however, take this as a wake up call that a Tsunami (and a major earthquake) can happen at any time so we all need to be prepared!

It was amazing to see the role that social media once again played in the reporting of this story today. Eyewitness accounts via Twitter, Facebook, Skype and YouTube. Real time reporting and sharing of information. Good stuff!

From the Associated Press:

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has canceled its tsunami warning for Hawaii, with the state apparently escaping the roiling waves unscathed.

Gov. Linda Lingle says no damage has been reported in any county. Tidal surges were observed Saturday along the coasts but did not roar ashore. She’s calling it “a great day now that it’s over.”

From the Wall Street Journal:

On a conference call with emergency-response teams in all the state’s counties, Chip McCurry, chief oceanographer with the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, advised authorities “to end this thing for Hawaii and to issue a cancellation message” in regard to the Tsunami warning.

Tsunami surges of six to 12 inches in height hit the “Big Island” of Hawaii beginning at 11:38 a.m. local time, 34 minutes later than oceanographers previously forecast, said Bill Hanson, administrative officer with the Hawaii County Civil Defense.
