Charlie Sheen remains in Hospital In Los Angeles after being rushed there Thursday morning after a supposed “marathon” party that lasted nearly two days. A party that included 2 porn stars… an “associate”, several other women and reportedly a briefcase full of cocaine.
But, his rep blamed the hospitalization on “intense abdominal pain.”
TMZ reported late on Thursday that Sheen suffered a hiatal hernia in his stomach — not an overdose — which triggered the 911 call. Charlie has reportedly had a hiatal hernia for years, which is located in his stomach.
How is this guy still alive? And how is his show still on the air?

Who’s excited? The long-awaited new album from Van Halen is closer to reality this week. I’ll be honest, I kinda forgot they were making an album but whatever.
Producer John Shanks confirmed via Twitter that he was indeed working with the band. The project will include singer David Lee Roth back behind the mic for the first time in over a quarter century.
All Shanks wrote was, “Here we go kids…vh.” Has time passed them by? We’ll see.

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is reportedly being replaced on Broadway in the Green Day production of American Idiot. By Melissa Etheridge!!! What???!!!
Armstrong is currently in the midst of a 50-performance run with the show thats based on Green Day’s 2004 “punk opera” album, but will take a break between February 1st and 6th. Stepping into the role of the drug-dealing St. Jimmy will be Etheridge.
I’m going To New York in May and was kinda excited about seeing American Idiot. I knew that Billie Joe wasn’t gonna be there at that point, and that was fine. But if I paid good money to see a Green Day Broadway show… and I got Melissa Etheridge… I’d be angry.
Armstrong, who co-wrote the stage production, will return to the role on February 10th and stay through the end of the month.
And oh yeah, Green Day will release a new concert album called Awesome As F*** on March 22nd.

We’re over two weeks in and I really haven’t lost any weight with my 2011… “diet”. I wanna lose a few pounds. I’m not unhealthy, just got some weight that could be gone.
Now remember I don’t wanna change my eating habits or start to exercise, but I still wanna lose some weight. How do I do that people. We’ve got some suggestions on-air… surgery, tape worms, etc. I don’t wanna go extreme either. I’m hoping, hoping, that cutting out that one bag of chips before bedtime once a week will help me lose 20 pounds by the end of February.
Wish me luck.
It only Took a quarter of a century… but the 1980s song “Money for Nothing” by the rock band Dire Straits has been deemed unacceptable for play on Rock 106 and all of Canadian radio.
Wednesday the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council ruled the song “contravenes the human rights clauses of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters’ Code of Ethics and Equitable Portrayal Code.”
A listener at a radio station in St. John’s, N.L., complained last year that the song includes the word “faggot” in its lyrics and is discriminatory to gays.
The broadcaster argued that the song had been played countless times since its release decades ago and has won music industry awards.
A CBSC panel concluded that the word “faggot,” even if once acceptable, has evolved to become unacceptable in most circumstances. The panel noted that “Money for Nothing” would be acceptable for broadcast if suitably edited.

Here we go again. Didn’t the last “Survivor” just end?
Well the cast of “Survivor: Redemption Island” has been released… and it looks like a good one. Two former beauty queens and two former NFL players (who you haven’t heard of ) are part of the cast.
There was a time when i stopped watching “Survivor”, but then I realized its such a good show and so easy to hook me in. I’ve watched the past few seasons… but I DON’T wanna watch this season. But I’m weak… weak I tell ya
Other castaways include a woman firefighter, two lawyers, a dancer and more. The names of two additional players from previous seasons of “Survivor” will be announced later this week. The new season takes place in Nicaragua and premieres February 16 on CBS.

Everyone seems to be blaming me for Canada’s loss to Russia Wednesday night. Don’t. For the record, I was cheering for Canada. I’m just saying… its NOT the worst thing in the world if Canada doesn’t win this tournament every year. A little parody is a good thing.
I WAS cheering for Russia though when it was 3-0. I didn’t want a blowout. Then it just slowballed. We couldn’t stop it and I DID feel bad.
2012 baby… thats our year. Its in our province so thats when we really care. I somewhat promise, I won’t cheer for anyone BUT Canada next year

It’s the time of year, where everyone, it seems, makes a New Years resolution. I am no different. I wouldn’t mind losing a few pounds. Thing is I don’t wanna exercise… or diet. Impossible you say? We’ll see.
Experts say when picking a resolution… expect to fail. In otherwords, have a backup plan. Or as some experts call it, a disaster recovery plan.
“Those who think they can do it all by willpower tend to fail,” says one expert, adding 50% of people who make resolutions give up by June each year. “You need to have a rip cord you can pull.”
Having a disaster recovery plan could mean signing up for a fitness class or hiring a personal trainer if attending the gym regularly on your own time fails. Nope. I said NO EXERCISING!!!
Wish me luck…
