A-ha to break up after 25 years
Pop group A-ha have announced they are to call it a day,
just months after achieving a top 10 album in the UK.
The band formed in 1982, and scored their first hit three years later.
And now they're gone forever...or until the next reunion tour!!
What ever you do . . . don't miss this day! (scroll down for the full details and start working on your list now)
Slap Your Co-Worker Day is coming . . . Friday, October 23rd!
October 23rd is the official Slap Your Irritating Co-workers Holiday: Do you have a co-worker who talks nonstop about nothing, working your last nerve with tedious and boring details that you don't care about? Do you have a co-worker who ALWAYS screws up stuff creating MORE work for you? Do you have a co-worker who kisses so much booty; you can look in their mouth and see what your boss had for lunch? Do you have a co-worker who is SOOO obnoxious, when he/she enters a room, everyone else clears it? Well, on behalf of Ike Turner, I am so very very glad to officially announce SLAP YOUR IRRITATING CO-WORKER DAY! Here are the rules you must follow:
* You can only slap one person per hour - no more.
* You can slap the same person again if they irritate you again in the same day.
* You are allowed to hold someone down as other co-workers take their turns slapping the irritant.
* No weapons are allowed...other than going upside somebody's head with a stapler or a hole-puncher.
* If questioned by a supervisor [or police, if the supervisor is the irritant], you are allowed to LIE, LIE, LIE !
Now, study the rules, break out your list of folks that you want to slap the living day lights out of and get to slapping on October 23rd..... and have a great slapping day!

Front man and bassist Dickie Peterson of pioneering metallers Blue Cheer was found dead Monday morning in Germany. He was 61 years old and had reportedly been battling cancer for the past year.
Peterson and Blue Cheer will forever be known for their 1968 debut LP Vincebus Eruptum, which includes a massive and jarring cover of Eddie Cochran's rockabilly single "Summertime Blues."
Throughout his five decades with the band, Peterson remained humble when it came to his band's legacy. He was once quoted as saying, "People keep trying to say that we're heavy metal or grunge or punk, or we're this or that. The reality is, we're just a power trio, and we play ultra blues, and it's rock and roll. It's really simple what we do.
