Shawn Mendes joins us in the Canalside Lounge! He has the #1 album in the country and we ask him about being the very first vinelebrity. Watch the interview and check out the pics from his performance below!
Check out his performance for Life Of The Party too!
Big Al is notorious for flubbing his one-on-one interviews. So when he found out he was going to sit down and talk about Do It For Kidd all by himself, he was a little worried. But we think he did a pretty great job! Watch below!
Plus, hear how our listeners are spreading kindness #ForKidd!
Ever wondered why Kellie was so angry when she yelled, “TV THEME SHOW SONG!!!”? We like to drop a sound bite every now and then, so we shared the stories behind some of our favorite drops to use on the show. Listen below!
We all like to mock each other from time to time, so we wanted to hear you imitate your significant other! A listener gave us their best Kellie Rasberry, and Kinsey called in to share her J-Si impression!
Plus, check out this guy’s SPOT-ON imitation of a girl’s voice!
Kinsey is on a mission to save our planet and it’s driving J-Si crazy! She has already mastered recycling, and now she’s all about water conservation. Hear about her “No Flushing” policy and how she gets J-Si out of the shower below!
Rapper DMX recently admitted to eating his dog’s food and a woman in Washington ate nothing but pet food for 30 days! So we challenged J-Si to try some different dog foods to see if he could guess the flavors.
Listeners will send us letters from time to time, and this morning Kellie wanted to share a letter she received from a listener in prison. He enclosed twelve dollars and asked that she donate it to Kidd’s Kids! How awesome is that?!
It’s really hard to write a blog when you’re moving. Who wants to read about somebody else’s first world problems? I certainly don’t want to be the one writing about them. Yet here I am, because I’ve been told I have to blog. And since I have absolutely nothing else but moving occupying my brain space right now, I apologize for the beating that’s about to come. I just want to bury my head under a pillow and hide from my life until this is all over. But since I can’t do that, I just keep doing stuff. I pack boxes. I assess my junk. Then I wrap that junk in whatever’s left of the bubble wrap that hasn’t been popped by my kid. And then I put it in another box. And the whole time I’m wondering if people who’ve managed to strip their lives down to the barest of necessities so they can move into one of those ingenious 500 square foot tiny houses with only a single frying pan and two changes of clothes are the ones who finally got it right.
No need to go through the entire list, but pretty much nothing with the move has gone right. And it all boils down to the fact that I am temporarily broke. For the past month, I’ve been borrowing money from my daddy to cover the expenses of getting the new house ready to move in and to pay my bills until I finally get that big check on closing day. All I had to do was get to July 29th! On July 29th, I’d finally have my check and I’d be able to pay back my daddy and pay down my credit card bill and make that first payment on my new house and FINALLY have a little room to breathe again. It was all about getting to July 29th. Until last night. That’s when I found out that the people who are buying my old house need to push back closing until August 19th. So now I won’t be getting that big fat check on July 29th, IF I GET IT AT ALL!! And today I have to borrow more money from my daddy because some checks are getting ready to hit and I don’t know if I can make it to pay day. But here’s the thing: I’m one of the most responsible people I know!!! How did I get myself into this situation???? THIS IS SO EMBARRASSING!!! I should’ve never decided to move. I should’ve stayed where I was. None of this would be happening if I hadn’t had this GRAND idea of moving to the suburbs to make a better life for my child. So from this day forward, if anybody EVER hears me mention about moving again into anything other than a 500 square foot tiny house, you have my permission to punch me full on in the mouth.
Kellie said it best, “it was a little bit of Kidd’s Kids and a little bit of sinnin’.” We traveled to New Orleans over the weekend for the Kidd’s Kids charity golf tournament. We had a blast continuing Kidd’s legacy in more ways than one!

If I could have about 2 more weeks of vacation now, please, I could maybe get everything done I MEANT to do over the last week of vacation. Have you ever experienced Buyer’s Remorse? I am in the throes of it and it is almost paralyzing. There are so many things I NEED to be doing, and it’s like I’m in this semi-frozen state. All I can do is keep moving forward, one foot in front of the other, one box at a time.
The things I’m finding as I pack are truly shocking. Eight and a half years of my life have accumulated in this house. And I’m left with this question: Why do I have so much freaking Tupperware??? And why the heck did I register for fine China??? Hey, Brides-to-be, I have a little tip for you: Don’t register for fine China!! Or crystal!!! You will never EVER use it! You will only end up covering each fragile, breakable piece in bubble wrap and hauling it from one house to the next! Oh, you may THINK you’ll set that elaborate crock pot when you leave for work in the morning so you’ll have a hearty stew ready for your man when he comes home at night…and you may daydream of churning ice cream for your family and serving it up on a hot summer day in those crystal dishes shaped like waffle cones…but let me tell you something — YOU WON’T!! So when you’re out registering for wedding gifts and you’re caught up in the headiness of it all, pointing that little laser gun at every bar code in the store BECAUSE YOU CAN, I hope the sound of my whiny Southern voice screeches in the back of your mind, “Just STOP!!!!!” You’ll thank me later when you’re into hour six of your garage sale trying to sell that never-used $200 Belgian waffle maker for $5 to some bargain hunter trying to haggle you down to two bucks. Or you can always just swaddle it in bubble wrap and move it with you to the next house. The choice is yours.
I also need to take a moment to apologize to Blockbuster. I just now found three DVDs I forgot to mail back to you in 2011. I’m sorry I contributed to your bankruptcy.
Joel McHale joins us to talk about his new movie Deliver Us From Evil. We asked him about the big switch from comedy to his new horror film. Check out the great interview, you don’t want to miss it below!
