Local Grandma to Cash in on Betty White Craze

Flint, MI – Citing reduced admiration and affection from her grandkids, area grandmother Eunice Patterson has decided to reinvigorate their love by finding a way to piggyback off the fame of 88-year-old actress and comedienne Betty White.  “They didn’t like the cookies I brought them last week and they didn’t even say thank you.  All they could talk about was Betty White on Saturday Night Live and how great she was,” said Patterson.  “I heard about some sort of  program that broadcasts everyone, on the internets.  The YouTubes I think it was called.  Maybe I’ll audition to get on there.”

Eunice isn’t quite sure how YouTube works or what it is exactly, but she says that if it will make her grandkids pay attention to her then she’s willing to try it.  “I bet it’s something similar to that show Bob Seger hosted years ago, Hilarious Candid Moments, or something like that,” Eunice told a couple nearby reporters.  “Is it at all like Tweeter or The Facesite Jason and Brandon mentioned last week?  Do you think they would accept 8mm film?”   Eunice’s grandkids were indifferent to her plan to get into mass media.  “Who would watch an old lady like grandma telling some poorly filmed jokes?” said her grandson Jason.  “She doesn’t own a computer, so this should be fairly interesting.”  As we went to press, Eunice was seen putting a Betamax tape in an envelope and then searching the Yellow Pages for YouTube’s mailing address.

Band Fuel Really Good, According to Local Man

Madison, WI – After a weekend spent sitting on the couch, eating Cheetos, and browsing Youtube, local man Chris Doersen has become a fan of the band Fuel.  “You know, I heard them on the radio Friday and decided to look them up on Youtube to see some live performances.  I gotta tell ya, they really rock.”

Fuel, not rocking

Chris said that he hadn’t branched out past their three well known hits (Hemorrhage, Shimmer, and Falls on Me), but that he also doesn’t need or want to.  “There are so many live performances online that each one sounds new.  These are so good that I don’t want to take a chance listening to another song. ”  Reading a few articles on Wikipedia also brought him up to date on the band’s history.  “Did you know that they broke up?  Seems like the lead singer may have had throat problems.  Cool thing is that Brett (Scallions, lead singer) formed a new band with the bassist called Re-Fueled.  That’s clever!  These guys are fucking rocking!”  As of press time, Chris had started repeatedly watching videos of Tonic playing “If You Could Only See.”
