Happy Headline of the Day – Monday, July 13, 2020

Jack Srebnik and Ellen Spencer have owned a pizzeria called The Slice in Rancho Mirage, California, since 2008. Of course, this year has been unusual — but they’re doing their best to serve others with a new program they’re calling Pay It Forward pizza days. Every Monday, Jack and Ellen donate 20 pizzas to nurses at a nearby hospital — and each Thursday, they deliver 80 free burritos. And, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, they distribute 50 to 70 pizzas to local senior citizens. They’ve been able to keep their business rolling, even with all the social distancing rules and special cleaning rules. But instead of just worrying about themselves and their business, Jack and Ellen are doing their best to share their success with others by giving away free food whenever they can.

The Daily Dish Podcast – Monday, July 13, 2020

Naughty Gossip claims Meghan Markle is writing a children’s book titled ”The Glorious Adventures of Freckle-Faced Meg.’  A source says, “Expect to read about a spunky, bi-racial girl from Los Angeles who marries a prince and changes the world. Meghan has always believed she was the heroine of her own story, which would be a very inspiring tale for young girls.”
KOCO-TV claims filming at the former Joe Exotic Tiger King zoo in Oklahoma was shut down last week after a film crew found what they believed to be human remains. Garvin County Sheriff deputies investigated and said the remains were from a small animal not a human. Filming is going to continue, though. The zoo, ironically enough, is currently controlled by Carole Baskin and her Big Cat Rescue organization, which happened as part of a $1 million judgement that Joe Exotic owes as part of a copyright infringement case.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator and former star of Hamilton, was asked recently if he thought Broadway was in trouble. He says, “One of the things I’ve been reading during this quarantine is a biography on Shakespeare, and it reminded me that when he was first coming to prominence, it was mostly traveling groups of players wandering the countryside, performing for small towns. Theater survived the bubonic plague — theater is going to be fine!” A 2016 fully-produced performance of Hamilton featuring Lin in the title role is now streaming on Disney Plus.

For those of you like me, who can’t even muster a few push ups or a run around the block, A 17-year-old from Wisconsin just set a new record for the most “Murphs” completed in 24 hours. In case you were wondering, a “Murph” involves a 1-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 air squats, and a final 1-mile run. The previous record was 16 Murphs in 24 hours. Tyler Friese just knocked out 16.75 of ‘em …
This year, due to the coronavirus, every American is simultaneously experiencing a LifeQuake. It offers an opportunity for positive change. We find ways to commemorate these personal rebirths. One common way is to mark the moment with a meaningful tattoo.
Bruce Feiler describes the LifeQuake in his new book, Life Is in the Transitions: Mastering Change at Any Age. Feiler writes that adults experience a major disruption to their routines almost yearly. These are life-changing moments involving relationships, family, personal health, jobs, and occasionally “birthdays that end in zero.”
Most times, we roll with these setbacks. Get knocked down but right back up. But once a decade or so the disruption becomes “truly disorienting and destabilizing.” That’s what Bruce Feiler calls a LifeQuake.
Feiler identifies three, distinct emotional phases of the LifeQuake. We must say goodbye to the old normal, then a lengthy re-adjustment period that feels messy followed by a “new beginning.” The book identifies ways to get through these adjustments faster and with better adjustment with less emotional hiccups.

Music News Podcast – Monday, July 13, 2020

The Sunday Mirror newspaper says Katy Perry has chosen Jennifer Aniston to be her daughter’s godmother. A source tells the newspaper,  ”Katy and Jen are very close. During lockdown, they went for socially distanced walks, and spent lots of time catching up. She is pretty chuffed about it as well and cried when they asked her.”
Taylor Swift and Katy Perry no longer have “Bad Blood” between them, but they might be blood relatives!
Katy called into Britain’s Capital FM for an interview and was blindsided when host Sian Welby told her, “I read somewhere that your baby might have a very famous aunt. Apparently, you and Taylor Swift are ninth cousins.”
Katy looked shocked, but recovered to respond “Well, we fight like cousins. I’m gonna have to ask her if this true, or if we should, like, get blood tests together… It’s cool because you can just, like, spit in a tube.”
Dua Lipa can kick your butt. She tells that her favorite workout is boxing. “I like that it’s definitely a full body workout. Since starting boxing I’ve probably been in the best shape ever. It’s also a great stress reliever.”
Harry Styles tells Rolling Stone magazine that one of his proudest moments was making Van Morrison crack a rare smile when they took a photo together. “I was tickling him behind his back! Somebody sent me that photo — I think his tour manager took it. When I saw it, I felt like John Travolta in ‘Pulp Fiction’ opening the case with the gold light shining. I was like, ‘Maybe I shouldn’t show this to anyone!'”

Hi friends, it’s Zack East. You might remember me as the guy that used to work here on the Coast for nearly the last 16 years.
