'Kitchen Nightmares' Star -- Threatens to Kill Restaurant Patron ... WITH A KNIFE
"Amy's Baking Company founder Samy Bouzaglo -- who appeared on "Kitchen Nightmares" -- attacked someone with a knife outside his restaurant Saturday ... and the footage is CRAZY! The person who shot the video says a drunk guy was eating at the Scottsdale restaurant when Samy's wife Amy Bouzaglo became enraged and ordered him to leave -- and he did. But Samy wasn't done with him. The video shows him outside -- waving a knife  -- going after the guy. You hear him scream to his wife, "Let me!" Samy eventually backed off, the guy left.   We called the Bouzaglo's ... and they INSIST Samy was holding a pen -- not a knife. And you thought Gordon Ramsay was intense." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet

Congratulations, Assad: You successfully got the US to bomb your enemies instead of you
"At first, the war was not a war at all, but a one-sided slaughter by Assad's troops against unarmed civilian protesters, a dynamic that Assad knew invited American-led intervention against him. Then it was a war between Assad's loyalists and home-grown Syrian rebels, which posed the same risk. But by allowing extremist groups like ISIS to grow, as he focused on weakening moderate rebels, Assad created a conflict in which he was the lesser of two evils. This strategy was not a secret; it was carried out in the open, as we all watched, and there is no mystery that Assad hoped to cultivate ISIS's growth." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet

Carly Fiorina Hits the Trail With an Eye on 2016
"The former Hewlett-Packard CEO and 2010 Senate candidate is hitting the campaign trail in the lead-up to Election Day for her new super PAC, teaching activists and politicians how to talk to female voters—and building herself a grassroots base in a half-dozen electorally important states in the process. While her efforts are focused on helping the GOP win control of the Senate in November, political strategists say Fiorina is doing all the right things to prep for a 2016 bid. And the message she's touting is a preview of the kind of role she could play, if she runs." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
All I'm going to say is, oh hell no. - Eric - It's My Thing
Typical of exec types to want to start at the top without paying their dues at the bottom and working their way up. - Spidra Webster
I was witness to her business incompetence. I'll give her this, she loves the spotlight. - Eric - It's My Thing
ISIS is really wanting to force Turkey's hand, don't they?
This CNN live feed is crazy. These guys have no strategy. They just kind of wander in, and shoot. Seems they don't care if they get shot. - Eric - It's My Thing
Did you ever own a 45 record? If you did, name one.
45s.gif
To my shame: Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft - The Carpenters. - Friar Will
Blondie - One Way or Another. Bought at the drug store in my grandma's town. I bought Doobie Brothers - Minute by Minute at the same time. I bought them solely on the way the label looked (MCA and WB). - Eric - It's My Thing
Sure. My first 45s were my mom and aunt's old 45s from the '50s. Including a Sun 45 of "Great Balls of Fire". First 45 I received as a gift was "Fly, Robin, Fly". First 45rpm I bought with my own $ was "Walking on Thin Ice" by Yoko Ono (I bought plenty of LPs before that...but I was 15 before I bought a 45.) - Spidra Webster

Wow, those WNBC era 45s must be quite the collection. - Eric - It's My Thing
"One Of My Turns" was the B-side to that PF single. yeah, there's some amazing stuff in his collection. also alot of his personal 78s in those boxes as well. too bad i no longer have a turntable that plays 78s! - Big Joe Silence
The first music I ever bought were two 45s. I Yam What I Yam by Robin Williams with He Needs Me by Shelly Duvall on the B side. Lady by Kenny Rogers. I bought them at Payless Drug Store. I must have been 6 years old. - Rodfather from Android
We have a whole bunch of them in the living room. I couldn't tell you what's on any of them. When I was kid? Damn...I know there was an EWF one. The hundreds of others? Never got to touch them. - Anika

The strangest one I own may be a European Hiphop group BVSMP - I Need You where the lyrics are split between the A side and B side. - Eric - It's My Thing
Half the 45s I bought were Doctor Who related, apparently. - bentley
Redbone "Come & Get Your Love" - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!

All By Myself--Eric Carmen. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
I still do own a few. The first 45 I bought on my own (not pilfered from my mom's collection) was Sweet Home Alabama (I was going through a phase, I've since cured myself of it). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
So many to choose from: Cut The Cake by AWB comes to mind. - MoTO: Team Marina
When i was a lil kid I used the 45 to listen to the Fairy Tales using this http://www.ildeposito.it/img... - Xabaras (G.O.)
Back in the mid 80s, we had a jukebox filled with 45s. Luckily for us, the local Sound Warehouse had 45s, so finding party music was never a problem. - Steven Perez
I still have about 15 of my 45s. First one that came to mind is Minnie Riperton - Here We Go. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

"Incense and Peppermints" by the Strawberry Alarm Clock was the first record I ever bought. I would have been 12. I can't remember what was on the flip side. - Ken Morley
I'm pretty sure the first 45 I got was "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Elton John and Kiki Dee in 1976. - Steele Lawman
Yes, Steele, that was the one we listened to incessantly. I also remember just where it developed a skip. Good times. - Mama Lawson

Hound Dog Elvis and Tutti Fruiti Little Richard I'm a Man Bo Diddley - Ned Hamson
Holy crap, it's like the pilot of Glee. I can hear Don't Stop Believing is the distance. As if it was from a memory.
After being freaked out by the medical issues this week, now I'm freaked out by the potential bill.

The 50 Best Hip-Hop Diss Songs
I just made a drink, lots of gin, a little orange liquor, some tonic water, and a wedge of Myer lemon. It's been a long couple days. I don't know what it's called but I deserve this.
Does this beat a bottle of wine? - Me
Well that depends. Is it a bottle of red? A bottle of white? - Eric - It's My Thing
Red of course. White is for whimps. - Me
Perhaps a bottle of rose tonight. - Eric - It's My Thing
So that's kicking in. o_O - Eric - It's My Thing
Ummm... HELLO! I didn't see your ass on the visitor's "bed" in that hospital! - Elena from FFHound!
True. Can I get you a libation? You seem to prefer bed to drink though. - Eric - It's My Thing
@Eric - Poppa Large: true. I am quite comfy - Elena from FFHound!
She called me Poppa Large. - Eric - It's My Thing
Wimp --> - Spidra Webster
Red. Strong. I can suggest you a "Nero d'Avola". - Xabaras (G.O.) from FFHound!

"It's a famous picture, of a famous baby!"
I have failed at adding people in ELLO. Wait SMTP flashback.
I also tried to invite and it was like, slow your roll dude. - Eric - It's My Thing
i had to put their username after the main URL and access and add that way. #B0RK3N - Big Joe Silence
Imma give it some time. I was hoping to be early enough to get my first name. That never works out for me. - Eric - It's My Thing
Who the hell is gonna give me an ello invite up in here?
what's your email address and I'll send one. - ellbeecee
eric0116@ googlie mailz - Eric - It's My Thing
OHH! may i also have one? pretty please? :D swilla at yahoo - Big Joe Silence
Think I got you both. Let me know if you don't get them. - ellbeecee
Got it. Thanks. - Eric - It's My Thing
thanks! - Big Joe Silence
Anyone have an opinion on smoked meats and time in the fridge? I would think smoked meats would last a little longer. Smoking does equal preservation, am I right?
I'd assume it depends on whether smoking was done for just cooking purposes or curing. Smoked salmon definitely lasts longer than regularly cooked in the fridge, smoked chicken seems to last as long as other cooked chicken, anecdotally. - Jennifer Dittrich
Just cooking. I had some ribs, they were 10 days old. I reheated to a 190 or so and they tasted fine, but then I got freaked out when I remembered how long they had been sitting there. - Eric - It's My Thing
I threw the majority out. - Eric - It's My Thing
What you don't want to hear, "Mom I can't breathe". What you don't want to do, book it to the ER. What you don't want from the doc, "it's not getting better, we'll need to check you in." What you don't want the ER to say, "you'll have to take an ambulance to the other side of town and check into the PICU." Where we don't want to be. Here.

Oh no! :-( - vicster: full-bodied from FFHound!
:( Sending good thoughts your way! - Katy S

Ooof. Thinking of you all right now. I hope they're able to get everything sorted quickly. - Jennifer Dittrich
Praying for you and your family, and hoping the docs get things sorted out quickly. - Jim: with more caffeine!
Looks like we will be overnight guests at the Children's Hospital PICU. Swelling hasn't gone down and no diagnosis as of yet. - Elena from FFHound!

You guys doing better after 6 hours? - Joe

Still in the PICU. Good news is the swelling has gone down. Bad news is they still don't know what's causing it. Hoping to be discharged in the AM. - Elena from FFHound!
I'm so sorry you guys are still without answers, but I'm glad the swelling is reduced! You're all in my thoughts. - Jenny H. from Android
How are things this morning? I hope you all had a better night ((hugs)) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

So glad you guys get to go home. - Tamara J. B.
Home now. Ahhhh. - Eric - It's My Thing
Whew. - Steele Lawman
Wow. I'm glad everything is OK. *hugs* - Monique Judge
Gah! Sorry to miss this. How is it going today, do they know what happened? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
in my prayers... - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA

So scary for you all! I hope you get answers soon! - Shannon - GlassMistress

Jimmy Fallon's Paula Deen Network Joke
"Here’s a short crack that Jimmy Fallon took at Deen on last night’s Tonight Show momologue; admittedly, all of the “shows” about to air on the new Paula Deen Network don’t sound terribly off from the real thing." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
Paula Deen on the Today Show - http://www.thebraiser.com/paula-d...
Paula Deen on the Today Show
"In anticipation of her brand-new (but not really) new online network launch, Paula Deen stopped by the Today show for a chat. If you can recall just a year ago, when the world was shocked by allegations of some nasty racist comments, her first chat with Matt Lauer was … not quite as sincere as she might as hoped (and perhaps the worst grammar that we’ve ever heard in our life). This time around, Deen and her sons had the talking points down — well, if you can get past some of the weirdness. Naturally, the actual launch of the Paula Deen Network was barely discussed. Lauer did mention the news that Deen and the network had bought back all of her Food Network video footage and shows, while Jamie and Bobby Deen answered that they paid “more than $20″ for all of it. (Hardy har har.) But really, this was the Paula Deen apology tour. A couple of the major bombs dropped in the segment: first, Deen admitted that her last appearance on the Today show maybe wasn’t her best idea. After Lauer... more... - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
Watch a Preview of Roy Choi's Upcoming CNN Show, Street Food - http://www.eater.com/2014...
"The show, produced by CNN Digital Studios, will be distributed exclusively online in a Netflix-style model, with all eight episodes available to stream starting October 13. In the preview, Choi says the show will explore how "the flavors, sounds, styles" and people of Los Angeles fuel the city's food scene and overall culture: Choi interviews a diverse line-up of guests like chef/fellow CNN host Anthony Bourdain, YouTube star Michelle Phan, and filmmaker Jon Favreau." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
Thank goodness hospitals have Starbucks coffee carts these days.
Children's Oakland has Peet's. Got me thru many long stays. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Funny how no one brought me anything from said cart - Elena from FFHound!
Because you drink coffee. - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
^^ False. I don't drink coffee :) - Elena from FFHound!
That's what I meant. That's what I meant... - Eric - It's My Thing

All of a sudden MTV2 went from Boy Meets World to Pranked. This show is making me weep for humanity. I really really really want someone to change the channel. I just can't do it.

Paul Ryan Declares War Against Math
"Obama enacted policies to increase revenue and slow health-care inflation, over the staunch and often hysterical opposition of Ryan, who insisted that budget forecasts showing that Obama’s proposals would reduce the deficit were wrong. The deficit has in fact fallen very fast. Ryan’s response is to deny that any of this has happened, to castigate Obama for failing to reduce the deficit, and to propose new measures that would increase it. And he wants everybody to ignore the budget forecasters because their numbers won’t bear out his claims." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
Any Sammy Haggar fans? What are the top 3 songs I should listen to? I'm going to his Birthday Bash concert in Vegas. It's free so I ain't saying no, but I'm not really familiar with his work beyond a couple radio songs.

The song that keeps popping in my head is from the soundtrack of Twister. https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Eric - It's My Thing
One of my faves! And he is sooooooo sexy in the clip. - Melly - #TeamMarina from FFHound!
Crossroads GPS is airing an anti Mark Udall ad for his stance on birth control. The funny thing is, the actress sitting in her kitchen talking about being insulted has a distinct SoCal accent. Nice try Koch brothers.
Of course the school portal is down. Just when I get a second to post some grades.

"Some people aren't going to be happy to let any old device stream content to their system. They aren't going to buy some hockey puck from Apple or Roku (much less something that looks like a USB stick). It could be that that they want something that does more, or it could be that they just don't trust those mass-market devices to have the audio quality that they demand. Regardless, they want something more." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
