    ANYTHING GOES KB Miller

    in Pop Culture

     


    Writer/critic Bennet Pomerantz discusses subjects with authors and artists on The Betty Award winning ANYTHING GOES Tonight's guest is KB MILLER


     


    Author, K.B. Miller is a proud native of Baltimore, Maryland. Currently, she resides in a tiny valley, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Pennsylvania along with her husband and son (both Steelers fans - eww!), her energetic puppy - Cullen Edward, and her mouthy blue front Amazon Parrot, Poppy.


    K.B. is a huge football nut! That's right fellas, she's a DIE-HARD Ravens fan living in Pennsylvania! How's that for ballsy?


    She's been writing for as long as she can remember, but two years ago her loving husband- who believed in her talent, finally gave her a gentle push... actually, according to her, it was really more like a kick... in the lower back-upper thigh region. She claims it hurt. After a few restless nights she decided to allow everyone to meet all of the crazy characters in her head, and here we are.


    K.B. has, as her family calls it, a ridiculous addiction to hats, shoes, sunglasses, owls, and coffee. No problems there, right? That's what she said.


    Welcome to K.B.-land, it's a lot like Disneyland only without all the endless lines, unnaturally happy people, and it doesn't cost you an arm and a leg to enter!

    Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 Premiere Recap: The Eight Craziest Moments!

    in Pop Culture

    And if you guessed that after that phone call I sent an email to President Barack Obama with the subject heading "Totes Figured Out How to Defeat Isis. Play Them This Conversation on a Loop," you are, indeed, correct. Anyway, my parents are older and cute and RHOA is older and ... something. NeNe-less (she's returning as a guest at the end of the season)? Definitely. Revitalized? Kind of, thanks to Sheree bringing the appropriate amount of drama before people had time to digest their first pig-in-a-blanket at Cynthia's party. That's right, guys! We maybe have lost a NeNe, but we gained a Sheree, who is injecting some much-needed life into this aging series and into last night's premiere, which was pretty solid, but Sheree didn't really shine until she strutted into Cynthia's sunglasses-line launch party. Much like this show, this career venture of Cynthia's makes no sense and I'm here for it. So let's discuss!


    I lied. One more thing before we talk about last night. Let's check out each of the ladies' taglines:

    Most visitors and locals will agree that when it comes to beaches on St. John a 'good to best' scale just would not do. The scale for describing St. John's beaches is 'Great', 'Greater' and 'It's a secret so I am not telling anyone'. All beaches on St. John are open to the public. Beachfront property however, in many cases is private and a few popular beaches have hotels nearby. Respect private property when accessing beaches. It is illegal to collect shells from beaches in the Virgin Islands; shells are confiscated at airport customs. There are no clothing-optional beaches in the Virgin Islands.


    General Beach Information:

    THE GREYHOUND BUS CANNIBAL KILLER-Dan Zupansky

    in Entertainment

    Tim McLean left Edmonton at 12 a.m. on July 30, 2008, on board a Greyhound Bus, destined for Winnipeg. At 7 p.m. the bus left one of the scheduled stops with a new passenger, Vincent Weiguang Li. Li, a tall man, with shaved head and sunglasses, sat near the front of the bus but moved next to McLean following a scheduled rest stop. McLean proceeded to fall asleep with his headphones on. Suddenly there was a blood-curdling scream and Li was standing over McLean stabbing him repeatedly in the neck with a huge knife. McLean struggled and tried to escape but couldn't as Li was blocking the aisle. The bus driver pulled to the side of the road as screaming, panicked passengers fled the bus. The driver and two other men tried to rescue McLean but were chased away by Li, who slashed wildly at them from behind the locked bus doors. Li then decapitated McLean and displayed his severed head to passengers outside. Li began severing body parts and eating McLean's flesh. By 9 p.m. Police were in a stand-off with Li, who taunted police, continuing cannibalizing and defiling the corpse. At 1:30 a.m. Li tried to escape out a window and was tasered and arrested. Body parts of the victim were found in plastic bags on the bus while one ear, the nose and the tongue were found in Li's pockets. McLean's eyes and part of his heart were missing.  Li, his face bloody, pleaded with officers, "I'm sorry. I'm guilty. Please kill me!"


    In March 2009 Vincent Li was found Not Criminally Responsible for the gruesome murder of Tim McLean in 2008. 


    In May 2015 Vincent Li was released from custody from the Selkirk Mental Health Centre and is now a free man living in a group home. THE GREYHOUND BUS CANNIBAL KILLER-The Definition of Insanity-Dan Zupansky
