Why is this man so sad?



You'd be bummed, too, if you had murdered your imaginary friend.

Here's the story:

Geoff Gaylord walked into a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and confessed to his crime: he had repeatedly stabbed his friend "Mr. Happy" with a kitchen knife, cut up Mr. Happy with a hatchet, and buried him in his backyard. Let me remind you again that this occurred in Florida, so perhaps it should come as a surprise to no one.

Gaylord and Mr. Happy were friends for seven years but, according to Gaylord, he killed him for a few reasons:

"He left his empty vodka bottles all over the kitchen... never picked up his empty cocaine baggies...He messed up my apartment to the point where I just couldn't get it clean...Before Hap started doing drugs and acting weird he was my BFF...We'd go dancing, play on the children's park equipment, both huge fans of doom metal – listened to it for hours with the lights turned off."

When Mr. Happy crashed Gaylord's car, and Gaylord got arrested instead, Gaylord had had enough.

"That drunk driving incident I got unfairly blamed for and just how messy he had become put me over the edge and I murdered him."

Gaylord was eventually taken into custody when he threatened police for not giving him the death penalty. Police found drug paraphernalia and a machine gun in Gaylord's house, and was booked on multiple charges.

After watching both of my grandmothers suffer through dementia before their passing, this struck home for me.

A radio station in Brazil posted this video in honor of AC/DC's Malcom Young, who had to step away from the band last year when his dementia took away his ability to play the decades of songs he had written for the band. The clip features individuals with dementia describing their memories of listening to rock music, then showing their reactions as they listen to some AC/DC. It's a great tribute. Check it out below.

Even though I play the actual drums, and I've been attempting to learn a few chords on a real guitar... I'm still pretty excited for the new Guitar Hero Live and Rock Band 4 games coming out this year. There's just something about strapping on a plastic guitar and pretending to be a rock star that appeals to the teenage Elwood in me.

Details are pretty sparse for Rock Band 4 at this point, but Guitar Hero Live is now available for pre-order (here) and the trailer (see below) is pretty cool. (Note: that's actual game footage!)

Here are some of the info:

The all new Guitar Hero. One game. Two ways to play. GH Live, where you can rock real crowds with real reactions. And GHTV, the world’s first playable music video network. With a continually updating library of hundreds of videos across genres, there's something for everyone. Make sure you’re one of the first to rock out.

COMING FALL 2015 TO XBOX ONE, XBOX 360, PLAYSTATION 4, PLAYSTATION 3, WII U, AND SELECT MOBILE DEVICES.

Here's the official Guitar Hero Live trailer:

Thin Lizzy is one of those bands that I never appreciated until recent years. Of course I knew "The Boys Are Back in Town," and to a lesser extent, "Jailbreak." But beyond that I knew nothing. Thanks to WAPL listener requests for stuff like "Whiskey in the Jar" and "The Cowboy Song," I started exploring more about the best band to come out of Ireland (sorry U2) and have not been disappointed.

For me, Thin Lizzy has become one of the most underrated rock bands of the 70's. If you want proof, look no farther than this compilation of EVERY Thin Lizzy guitar solo from 1971-1983. It's awesome to have on in the background while you're at work.



And if you haven't heard WAPL playing the new song "The Killer Instinct" from Black Star Riders (re-branded Thin Lizzy, without founding bassist and singer Phil Lynott), check it out below. They're playing with Europe at Potawatomi Casino in Milwaukee on April 24th.

Let's say you're a huge Bon Jovi fan and decide to show your love with a tattoo of one of their lyrics. Please make sure the tattoo artist has a basic understanding of grammar... and how to spell "Bon Jovi"

We all lost an hour of sleep this weekend. It doesn't help farmers. It doesn't help energy costs. It does increase heart attack rates, work-related injuries, and suicide rates, however.

As "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" put it... How Is This Still a Thing?

A New Jersey school bus aide was recently caught on surveillance rummaging through students' backpacks, stealing money and food from the 3 to 5-year-olds she was supervising.

If they hadn't caught this lady on tape, we would have offered up some additional suspects...
