The Jane Ellen Experience Podcast #179 Tue 11.17.09

Monday, it was the Golden Girls. Today, it's phthalates. Chemicals found in nail polish and all sorts of stuff. Someone thought to do a study on phthalates. Seems it affects the testosterone level in the masculine brain when pregnant mothers are exposed to phthalates. The result is phthalate exposure leads to boys who do not exhibit stereotypical boy play behavior. It does not affect girls by the way. Now, they're not saying it makes you gay. They're just sayin'.

Kris Allen's new album came out today. It's getting meh reviews. But hey, Andrew Frampton was one of the producers (I suppose Peter was busy). It's got 13 songs on it and he has a songwriting credit on nine of them. Glambert's For Your Entertainment makes its debut a week from today.

Things blew up reeeeeeeeeaaaaal good in 2012. Which is why it's doing so well overseas. It has set a global record for an opening weekend raking in $225 million worldwide. By the way, if you've never seen Second City TV, from Canada, eh. They did a bit where they blew up things real good. The sketch was called The Farm Film Report. Good times.

We also discuss the lawsuit over the name of the Washington Redskins. I find the name Gamecocks and Morehead more offensive. But that's just me.

Friday, CMT 8pm CST Larry the Cable Guy Hula Palooza Christmas Luau. Look for me. I was actually there. On the stage. Not in the audience. Man that craft services was the bomb. Wish it was here at the house. Well, actually, better that it is not.
