Billie Eilish Backstage And In The Mix With HK™

Billie Eilish has been selling out venues across the country in minutes as her concert tour promotes her musical world domination…oh yeah and her album too. Said debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? released March 29th made Eilish the first artist born in the 2000’s to have a number one album in the US. The concert was just as impressive with a very comfortable 17 year old Billie dancing and singing her hits as the crowd sang every single word to every single song along with her. My favorite part was when Eilish and her brother Finneas, who produced the album and co-wrote the songs with Billie, got on a bed to perform “I love you”. She explained “We want to perform this exactly how we created it, which was on a bed.” As Eilish sang and her brother played, the bed levitated above the stage and the crowd went CRAZY!

 This weekend I’m goin’ crazy on the decks and levitating the party with remixes of your fave jams! Get ready for epic HK remixes on P!nk, Bruno Mars, Halsey, Jonas Brothers, Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Sam Smith & Normani. Plus new beats from Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, mash-ups, throwbacks and so much more! It’s Father’s day weekend and that means party like a Mack Daddy right here tonight at midnight! (Early Sunday Morning!) Remember…if it’s hot, if it’s new and it makes you wanna move…you’re In The Mix with HK™

A Man Named Henry Ford Is Wanted for Stealing Cars in Detroit

With this guy’s name and hometown, he was destined to have a life that had SOMETHING to do with cars.  Unfortunately, it’s this.

There’s a 49-year-old guy from Detroit whose real name is HENRY FORD.  He’s not related to THE Henry Ford though.

And . . . he’s wanted right now for car theft.

He’s been in and out of prison for stealing things cars and stuff inside them for decades.

He was locked up recently for stealing GPS units out of cars, but was released.  And then he cut off his ankle monitor, mailed it back to the Michigan Department of Corrections, and stole the tires off a Ford EcoSport.

The police are trying to track him down.

Not Everyone’s a Morning Person or Night Owl . . . There Are Also Afternoon People and Nappers

Are you a morning person or a night owl? It’s okay if you’re thinking, “Well . . . I’m kinda neither.” It turns out there are more choices than that.

A new study out of Belgium found there are really FOUR types of people:

1. Morning people, who are the most alert in the morning.

2. Night owls, who are most alert at night.

3. Afternoon people, who are most alert from around 11:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

4. And nappers, who are alert in the mornings, then fade HARD around 11:00 A.M., but then get a second burst of energy after 3:00 P.M. . . . especially if they can squeeze in a nap.

The researchers say it could actually improve all of our productivity if companies embraced sleep type and planned accordingly . . .

Early starts for morning people . . . late starts for night owls . . . long bursts of afternoon work for afternoon people . . . and midday naps for nappers.

You’ll Spend Less on Groceries If You Put Your Phone Away

Here’s a tip that could save you a lot of money . . .

The next time you’re shopping for groceries, leave your phone in your pocket.  Or better yet, in your car.

Researchers at Babson College and the University of Tennessee recently looked at how our phones can affect the way we shop.  And it turns out people who use their phone at the supermarket spend a LOT more on groceries than people who don’t.

In one study, people added 45% more items to their cart when they used their phone.  And in a second study, it was 58% more.

The average person spent 41% more money when they used their phone while they shopped, to do things like check social media and respond to texts.

And each second they spent on their phone upped their final bill by 25 to 50 cents.  So if you think of it like that, every four seconds on your phone costs you at least a buck.

They say the reason is simple:  Your phone is distracting and makes you go slower.  And the longer we’re in a store, the more we buy.

A Poll Says Tom Cruise Would Whoop Justin Bieber

The people have spoken, and they think JUSTIN BIEBER made a mistake challenging TOM CRUISE to a fight.

FIFTY PERCENT of the people who responded to a poll say that Tom would win if they threw down.  But only 15% think Justin can take Tom.  The other 35% are undecided.

Meanwhile, UFC star CONOR MCGREGOR wants in on this action.  He Tweeted, quote, “If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout.

“Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies?  Stay tuned to find out!”

Conor also challenged MARK WAHLBERG to a fight on the same card.

Maybe this will be a match at Wrestlemania 36 next April?? Hmmmm! Vince McMahon you reading this? Maybe have The Rock referee it?

Police Officers in Utah Call 911 When They Get Stuck in an Elevator . . . in the 911 Building

This has to be one of the stranger 911 calls you’ll hear about.

Some cops in Salt Lake City, Utah called 911 last week after they got in a crowded elevator and the elevator got stuck.

And the elevator was in a public safety building . . . which happens to be the same building where the 911 dispatchers work.

Once the cops explained they were being serious and yes, they were calling 911 from inside the building, the dispatcher sent over the Salt Lake City fire department to rescue them.

When the cops heard THAT plan, one of them responded, quote, “I bet [the fire department] can’t wait to post this on social media.”  Which they did.

Fortunately the rescue went smoothly and everyone in the elevator was fine.

The Top Reasons We Prefer the Left or Right Side of the Bed

Do you always sleep on the same side of the bed, even if you’re sleeping alone?  A new survey asked 2,000 Americans WHY they do it.

They were allowed to give more than one answer.  Here are the top five reasons we prefer one side of the bed over the other . . .

1.  It’s easier to get in and out of bed on that side, or it’s closer to the door, 40%.

2.  My partner prefers the other side, 31%.

3.  Better access to the nightstand, also 31%.

4.  There’s a better view of the TV, 25%.

5.  I like to sleep against a wall, 18%.

We’re not sure how scientific this next part is.  But they also looked at the different personality traits of right and left-side sleepers.  (For the study, the “left” side was the side on your left if you’re standing at the foot of the bed, not lying down.)

They found people who sleep on the left side of the bed tend to like beer more than wine . . . listen to oldies music . . . prefer dramatic movies . . . and lean left politically.

Meanwhile, right-side sleepers are more likely to be wine drinkers . . . listen to rock music . . . prefer action movies . . . and lean right politically.

“Tetris” Turns 35 Years Old Today

The game “Tetris” turns 35 today.  The first playable version was finished on June 6th, 1984.  But most of us played the Nintendo version that came out five years later.  Here are a few more Tetris facts you probably didn’t know . . .

1.  It got its name from the Greek word “tetra,” which means four.  And the guy who made it loved tennis.  So he combined the two for “tetris.”

2.  The four-celled blocks in Tetris have a name.  They’re called “tetrominoes.”

3.  The guy who created Tetris didn’t see any profits until the mid-90’s, because the Soviet government owned the rights for the first ten years.

4.  It’s the most ported game ever, meaning it’s been on more systems than any other video game.  Guinness put the number at 65 back in 2010.

5.  The Game Boy version was the first video game played in space in 1993.

6.  The theme song is a Russian folk tune from the 1800s that has lyrics.  They’re about a peddler who seduces a young peasant girl.

7.  Studies have shown Tetris can increase the thickness of your cerebral cortex by almost half a millimeter.  And a study this year found it might also help with PTSD.

8.  An early computer version in 1987 had a “boss button” function.  So if your boss walked by, you could quickly pull up a generic spreadsheet.

9.  There was a sequel to Tetris in 1989 called “Welltris”, where you basically played the same game in three dimensions.  It was confusing though, and not very popular.

10.  The Tetris World Championships still happen every year.  The next one is in Portland this October.
