On today’s River Mornings with Melissa & Jack (8-30)
Fall Line Fest –
A two-day music, art and food festival is hitting Downtown Richmond on September 6th
. It’s a first time event and is very similar to Austin’s South By Southwest festival in that it combines awesome, new, unheard of artists, art, performance and of course – this being Richmond – FOOD. Should be an awesome event. Get more information at FallLineFest.com or you can purchase passes directly from the River website.
On Tuesday morning, a guy in Washington State tried to get a bag of pot to his friends in jail by taping it to an ARROW and shooting it through a second story window. Only he missed, and was arrested a short time later. He claims he was actually aiming for a squirrel. But he couldn't explain why the arrow had drugs attached to it. There’s a Hunger Games joke here somewhere.
American Music Fest –
Is August 30th-September 1st in VA Beach and features Third Eye Blind, Fuel, Barenaked Ladies, Carbon Leaf and Daughtry. Melissa and Jack are hooking you up with passes all week.
Hollywood Hot Mess –
At this point we all know Miley Cyrus pointedly used a big foam finger - the foam fingers you see at sports events - to touch her private areas during her ‘twerking’ or ‘dancing’ or whatever it was Sunday night at the MTV VMA’s. Anyway, the guy who invented the foam finger, a man named Steve Chmelar, told Fox Sports today: "I would say that it certainly misrepresented its intent to encourage team support," Chmelar added. "She took an honorable icon that is seen in sporting venues everywhere and degraded it. Fortunately, the foam finger has been around long enough that it will survive this incident.’ Yes it will, Steve. Yes it will.
Buzzfeed (Melissa & Jack's sad obsession) released a list today called '18 Simple Life Hacks For Anyone Who Grew up in the 90's and 80's', and it's AWESOME.
