Journey has a new tiny lead singer from the Phillipines!

Seriously.

From Wikipedia:

In December 2007, after briefly considering the lead singer of a Virginia-based tribute band, Journey hired Filipino singer Arnel Pineda of the cover band The Zoo after Neal Schon saw him on YouTube singing covers of Journey songs…(!)

This guy sounds just like old Steve Perry too. Weird.

Howard Stern’s new intern: New York Giant Antonio Pierce!

From the awesome files: Howard Stern‘s new intern, at least for the rest of this week, is New York Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce.

Antonio is apparently interested in broadcasting, and much like hockey player Sean Avery hooking up an internship at Vogue magazine, he reached out to the Stern show to see if he could help out.

Antonio spent much of his internship on air, talking about his wife Jocelyn Pierce, his recent accusations of neglecting his pitbulls, and the art of towel snapping.

P.S. Go Big Blue.

Anyone have an Amazon Kindle?

Amazon Kindle

Do any witz.org readers have one of these apparently awesome Kindle from Amazon? We gotta admit we are tempted to purchase.

For those who have no earthly idea what these are, Amazon describes it as a wireless reading device, which is pretty accurate – you can download electronic versions of books straight to it via built in Sprint EVDO networking. Tres’ awesome.

The downside? Some people are are a bit down on it, the design geeks think it stinks, and it costs $399. Eek.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments please. Yes, those are referral links to Amazon.
