Mick Fleetwood has revealed he urinated on the White House lawn feet away from the Clintons in his new autobiography.
The Fleetwood Mac drummer divulged his feelings of panic at the lack of available portaloos during a concert at the White House in 2001. His band were there for a surprise performance at Bill Clinton's leaving party, but, as revealed in his new book Play On: Now, Then, And Fleetwood Mac, Fleetwood had to make an emergency pit stop when he was unable to reach the toilets before the band played.
In an interview withThe Guardian, he said: "I was dying to pee and I didn't have time to go back to the house before we appeared. I was saying to my manager, 'What the fuck am I going to do?'
"I was dressed like Mr Rumours, in knickerbockers, with my wooden balls hanging out. The security guys must have heard because suddenly this fella with an earpiece said something like 'permission granted to urinate on the lawn'. One of our musicians took a picture of me doing it.
"I don't think Bill and Hillary knew about it, but they'd forgive me."

You just know this is going to be awesome! KISS will perform as part of the 88th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 27. The band will play before an expected crowd of 3.5 million spectators lining the streets of Manhattan and more than 50 million viewers across the States.
"2014 has been a banner year for us and participating in one of the country's most beloved events caps off what has truly been a spectacular 40th Anniversary," said Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons. "We can't wait to rock the Big Apple with our fans on Thanksgiving."

National Geographic is reporting that "During the month-long expedition, the team found 21 specimens of the brown-and-orange creature, which has mysteriously long, delicate fingers and toes. (Read about tree frogs in National Geographic magazine.)
The male frogs also have an unusually large vocal sac, a nearly transparent piece of skin that inflates to produce its unique high-pitched chirping sound. Male tree frogs in general make loud calls to communicate with females in distant treetops, but the new species is the first known to sound like a bat.
Once the team had brought their treasure back to the lab, "we kept talking about the 'bat frog,' which led to us talking about being fans of Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath," Peloso said."

The College Football Playoff is here and yesterday SEC schools had a case of Donkey vs. Donkey violence. Yes, we all knew that not all of the SEC schools would make the Top 4 for the playoff even with the embarrassing scheduling that they do every year.
But there is no way the playoff expands to 8 or 16 until we truly have a mess.
I'm asking for a majority of the top 10 to take it in the gas pipe, choking like Auburn did yesterday to A&M. I want teams like Florida State to be embarrassed and have to BEG to get into the playoff.
Without controversy, we're going to be dealing with the BCS crap again, and how did THAT end up?
So Top 10 teams, choke. For the good of the playoffs!
Am I wrong? Tell me below!

With Camouflage Ice Cream
This is so cool! In honor of Veteran's Day, Baskin-Robbins is having a little fun with its ice cream of the month. The company is now offering its First Class Camouflage ice cream, which combines chocolate, salty caramel, and cake flavors into one camo-themed dessert.
In addition to the new incognito ice cream, Baskin-Robbins is also offering a camouflage waffle cone and waffle bowl. And if that's not enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, there's also a First Class Camouflage Layered Sundae with a caramel praline topping, hot fudge, and Oreo cookie pieces.

The votes have been cast and our country has elected officials. Some old, some new, but in the end democracy has won again. It wins because we have spirited campaigns filled with obnoxious ads, phone calls asking if we have voted and it is finally over.
We get to enjoy our lives again.
There will be fighting in the House, Senate and the White House over topics that will drive us all crazy, but we don't have to worry about that now.
We get to worry about our kids, families and futures.
No, we won't get everything that we want. There are issues that we all care about, the economy, jobs and immigration as well as health care.
But, let's make a deal. We put this all off a couple of days. Let's just enjoy tomorrow with our friends, family and community.
Because, iIt's just 276 days until the caucuses for 2016 presidential insanity starts all OVER again!

Dear Texas Political Candidates, I have an offer that will guarantee my vote this and all election cycles thereafter.
Here is my challenge.
Since Texas A&M has left for the SEC and they really don't want to have to play Texas Tech or UT anymore, I want to challenge you to force them to do so. We need them as a patsy, an easy win.
Do you want my vote?
Propose a amendment to the Texas Constitution that says "The State of Texas will take 50% of Texas A&M's portion of the Permanent University Fund and reallocate it to Texas Tech University and distribute the remaining portion to any 4 year institution in the State of Texas until there is a time where Texas A&M plays Texas Tech & UT in football yearly, If UT decides that they don't want to play Texas A&M, their portion of the PUF fund will also be distributed as mentioned above."
Propose that, and let the fireworks begin.
Because every moron who claims that there is a "equality" across the state of Texas can chew on whatever BS they think.
So do you want my vote? Then do something FOR Texas Tech instead of the lip service.
Help Tech gain a better footing vs the EVIL in Austin & College Station.
I'll be waiting your phone call.

It's Halloween and the trick or treaters are all around my neighborhood. But they won't take a pair of Texas Tech Red Raider tickets from me.
"It's a trick," they say!
Yes, it is.
The Red Raiders are still a young team, and I still believe that we are at least 2-3 years away from a championship caliber team.
It isn't just players, UT gets the best of the best recruits in Texas, but they haven't sniffed a championship in 4 years.
It takes experience and time.
What don't we have right now? We don't have seasoned anything. In the past Texas Tech was filled with the Good Ole Boys network. We were filled with experience, but were not filled with excitement.
Now, Texas Tech has excitement and the power of youth, but we also have a degree of arrogance and immaturity.
The team that we pray will come around in the future will depend on the paths that are taken by all the players:
2013, a sophomore quarterback and two freshman QB's – How did that end up?
2014, a sophomore quarterback and two freshman QB's – 2nd verse, same as the 1st.
STOP EXPECTING BIG THINGS FROM THIS TEAM!
Expect a rebuilding of the mindset of both the coaching staff and the student athletes.
Expect a team that we should love without the expectations of winning… YET
Because the more pressure we put on this team, the bigger disappointment they will be.
The Texas Tech Red Raiders will return to the top of the Big 12, just not for the next 2 years.
That will be the treat we all deserve!

Someone was about to have a crazy party! "A semi truck carrying 44,000 pounds of Miller High Life beer stolen Monday at an Orlando truck stop has been recovered in Miami" according to the Orlando Sentinal.
"The driver, Van Thomas, who has been a trucker for years, bought the semi just three weeks ago to start a company of his own. He was en route from Texas to Pompano Beach when he made the stop in Orlando.
That was when detectives say thieves drove off with the truck, which was carrying about 9,700 four-packs of Miller High Life, equaling 44,000 pounds and 38,800 cans of 16-ounce beer.
Thomas received a call from detectives Tuesday telling him the truck was recovered in Miami with most of the cargo in two. Detectives are still trying to figure out who stole the truck."
