Rules are meant to be... changed!

Once again flaunting the no sandals rule at The Academy, ARB Co-Owner/Founder/Chief cook and bottle washer Lindy Thurrell regaled radio students this week with engaging stories of "FCC Rules and Regulations."

Here, Lindy displays an early draft of rules & regs. Now they take up their own federal building in Washington, D.C.

Thanks for the up-to-the-minute info, and for sharing your experiences with us, Lindy!

Frightening Moments on Live TV

The smile fools you...

Update: Tests concluded that she suffered a migraine, the symptoms were very much like a stroke.

From Mediaite:

Eminem and Rihanna performed their song “Love the Way you Lie” at the Grammys and, well. Let’s just say someone at CBS is going to have #%&@ing difficult conversation with his boss tomorrow for not censoring all of the @#$%ing song. The censors let slip an instance of an “F-bomb” during the performance.

And no, I'm not posting the actual moment in this blog... I'd like to keep my job!

FYI: CBS could be fined up to $325,000 for Marshall Mather's ummm, creative use of freedom of speech.

Hand Cramp Alert!
