Meet Year Of October

Year of October is an on-the-rise independent band based out of Nashville that has heavily featured on CBW Radio over the past three weeks, but who exactly are they?

Introduced to CBW Radio via the Independent Spotlight during The Rock Revival, Year of October has quickly become a fan favorite amongst listeners of the station. Capturing both a classic rock and modern sound, Year of October’s featured tracks off of Wastelands have found a home on Fridays as well as regular CBW Programing. Upon reaching out to the band, I was able to secure further information about this incredible act and just who they are.

Who is Year of October?

Year of October is Phlecia Sullivan, Josh Sullivan, and James Varner.” The band was formed by Phlecia and Josh While attending the University of Kentucky in 2010. The name comes from “When Phlecia and I (Josh) first started playing music… I was playing acoustic guitar and she was singing and it had a campfire music kind of vibe. Phlecia came up with the name based on that feeling of fall.”

How would you describe your sound?

“We’d describe our sound as fuzz, rock, soul. I would say that our music combines rock, soul, and blues; We’ve put out 4 records now and each record has continued to change and evolve (our sound)”

Who have been your biggest influences?

“We like a lot of different music, Some of our favorites include Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Amy Winehouse, Black Sabbath, Jack White, Dead Weather, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, The Budos Band, and Charles Bradley.”

Year of October can be heard regularly on CBW Radio where Josh describes, “It’s definitely an honor for us to be showcased… It’s an awesome station and we are truly very thankful.” As well as on any major streaming service such as Spotify or iTunes.

You can also catch Year of October live in Nashville, TN at Drifter’s BBQ on May 14th as well as Kimbro’s in Franklin, TN on May 25th!

Gavin Michaels Comes to CBW Radio

On Friday 04/29/22 during The Rock Revival, The CBW local music spotlight will be on Gavin Michaels

CBW Radio has begun heavily showcasing local and independent musicians during The Rock Revival show hosted by Style. In recent weeks we’ve heard the music of bands such as Year of October as well as Jet Star, the latter of whom appeared in person during last weeks Rock Revival to talk about some of her favorite music and newest album! This week CBW Radio will showcase the music of Gavin Michaels, a newcomer to the Cleveland music scene but not to THE music scene. If you find yourself asking, just who is Gavin Michaels, we’ve got you covered!

Gavin Michaels, “was born in the pouring rains of Seattle WA, and recently moved to the equally dreary Cleveland OH to bring his signature flavor of emo/pop-punk to the Midwest.” In his own words.

Heavily inspired by the Punk Rock scene, Gavin strives to create shows that are exciting, engaging, and reflect the uniqueness of every particular audience.

Gavin details his days in the Seattle Music Scene below

“In college, I tore up the Seattle music scene with several pop-punk bands, and grew significantly as an artist. When 2020 hit, I took that time to focus inward, and developed my own music. What initially started as indie-acoustic venture, (A Song for the Insecure) eventually grew into to lofi-pop EP (Butterflies), and finally to the powerful pop-rock single Goodnight Seattle! With the return of live music in 2022, I’m focused on making music that’s not only a good listen, but meant to be experienced.”

Gavin Michaels new EP, Along for the Ride, drops May 27th and features three tracks that, “lie somewhere between The Killers, Panic! at the Disco and Green Day.” The EP is set to explore identity, anxiety, and the never-ending struggle to grow as a person.

Look for Gavin Michaels on Spotify and YouTube and catch his music played live on CBW Radio! Gavin’s song Goodnight Seattle! Debuts on air Friday during The Rock Revival at 2:15pm eastern!

THE GOO

In the evening while at the laundromat I found myself in a predicament. I had a pocket full of quarters and a hankering for a delicious treat, but to my surprise  all the candy machines were empty… all but one.

Upon further inspection of this specific machine I noticed that this was not a candy I could buy but instead a sticky mound I liked to call Goo. This gelatinous mess seemed to be the byproduct of really old melted candy and an ill maintained laundromat but nevertheless I grew fond of the Goo.

As weeks passed I’d visit the Goo and was in awe of its progression, it never got bigger or more disgusting, it just seemed to solidify more and more over time. The Goo gained a following over time as well it became very famous on several social media platforms, everyone was overjoyed that the Goo was sticking around. 

After a couple of months of this red Goo being the only thing in these candy machines I figured the Goo would never go away. It was reliable, but one sad night I found myself at the laundromat and as I went to check on my old friend the Goo was nowhere to be found, in its place SKITTLES!! I wouldn’t think it’s odd if they had filled the rest of the candy machines as well, however the only machine that has candy in it used to hold the Goo.

It’s my belief that the Goo is still there hiding just beneath the skittles which means two possible outcomes: one the skittles add to the Goo with the impending summer heat that’s coming our way or two enough people use their quarters to buy the skittles and uncover the illustrious Goo.

I know I’m romanticizing melted candy but it was a friend and I will always cherish the time we had together and I hope to see the Goo return in all its glory someday until then farewell old friend.

Bees Aren’t Birds

Everybody loves bees and everybody LOVES birds though they work for the government. All everybody talks about is the birds and the bees and how they’re the bees knees but nobody talks about the bees and the birds and how they’re the birds knees. This is a scientific theses supported by bibliographic evidence on how western culture and society views bees as birds.

Instagram.com

I walked outside after a long day of cleaning the sofa. I wanted to unwind so I decided to chop some wood for the upcoming summer. After 2 swipes I couldn’t see too much because of the sweat drooping down my face. I decided to pull my hair back, tighten my kilt, and toughen up though the tears. “This is where the fun begins.”

Photodune.com

Oh right this is a post about bees and birds. The scientific evidence shows it all through the eyes of linguistic relativity. Bees and birds can be the same thing through the eyes of New Yorkers, considering they’ve never seen bees before. The prime difference between birds and bees is that birds do not have knees. Bees also have pollination abilities. No bird ever does that. Not one single bird is able to collect pollen and/or nectar. This is proof #1.

Instagram.com

Another distinguishable difference is that bees are blue collar while birds are living off of welfare. Many different types of bees build their own homes with motivation and craftsmanship while birds collect trash from the ground and steal from other organisms’ properties. This is proof #2.

Etsy.com

The final point of evidence lies on your vehicle’s hood and windshield. No bee has ever taken a dumb on your car right? Right? Well that should be enough to know that birds are the inferior species and they do not understand the systematic failure of corrupt government that we are experiencing as a democratic republic. All they do is buzz and have no thoughts. Birds think politics, not pollen.

Don’t be sad go get a tattoo

Tattoos might make you feel good. There are the obvious chemical responses, for starters: You’re going to have a rush of adrenaline, because someone is coming at you with a needle. And you’re going to get some pretty nice endorphins too – your body’s chemical response to pain – which can make you sort of high.

But there’s more to it than that. According to one (admittedly small) study, a new tattoo might improve your self-image for weeks after the fact. 

The effect might even be long-term for men, though most women get anxious a few weeks in – possibly because they started worrying about how other people see their tattoos. 

Wanting to feel that euphoria could play a part in your desire for another tattoo, but there’s no scientific evidence to suggest you can develop an endorphin addiction, whether your endorphin rush is related to a tattoo or to something else.

What about pain?

It’s a generally accepted fact that getting a tattoo will involve some level of pain.

A large, detailed, or colorful tattoo will be more painful than a small, less-detailed tattoo, but most people who get a tattoo will feel at least a little discomfort during the process.

It’s possible you enjoy the sensation of getting tattooed because of the endorphin release associated with the pain. Some people who enjoy painful sensations may find tattooing more pleasurable than uncomfortable.

Masochism, or the enjoyment of pain, could help you feel more at ease while you’re getting a tattoo, but your goal is most likely the permanent art on your body, not the brief pain you feel while you’re being tattooed.

Not everyone who gets a tattoo enjoys feeling pain. In fact, it’s more likely you’re simply willing (and able) to tolerate the pain for the sake of a piece of body art that means something to you.

Whether you enjoy the intensity of the tattoo session and the endorphins your body releases or you tolerate the needle with deep breathing exercises, there’s no research to suggest pain addiction drives people to get multiple tattoos.

So don’t be sad go get a tattoo.

Beavis and Butthead Returns

Series creator Mike Judge has confirmed the return of Beavis and Butthead.

Show creator Mike Judge has confirmed on Twitter the metal-loving duo of Beavis and Butthead will be making a triumphant return to the big screen in 2022 with a follow-up movie to the 1996 cult classic, Beavis and Butthead Do America. The film is set to be released on Paramount+ and will feature middle-aged versions of the dynamic-duo. Paramount+ is the same streaming service that ordered a new South Park special at the tail end of 2021 feature “adult versions” of all the main characters.

Judge accompanied his announcement with two character design sketches for Beavis and Butthead (below) with the caption, “They need some time to get back in shape.”

@MikeJudge -Twitter

This announcement follows one made by Judge back in 2020 describing his new deal with Comedy Central to seemingly reboot the series for two more seasons set in the modern era. With no date yet announced for either project, we eagerly look forward to seeing our two favorite degenerates on the screen once again.

Will the Beavis and Butthead movie be a precursor for the rumored new seasons on Comedy Central? Let us know what you think down below as well as in the WSRR Discord server!

Types of Chumps You Meet Hiking

As a somewhat experienced hiker myself. The general hiking crowd knows about these certain stereotypes and it rubs off on them in either positive or VERY negative ways. Most of these listed are going to follow the latter category, so enjoy.

1) The Yogi

Barefooters.org

Known as the most spiritual hikers out on the trail, these chumps usually have two reasons for being in the wilderness: they’re either looking for themselves or a new smoke spot. These free-going individuals usually spend extensive times in the woods even though they have a minimal home 30min-1hr away. To spot these chumps, look to see if they’re wearing shoes. If not, Yogi. Long dreads and tie-dye shirt? Yogi. Pungent stench? Either rock climber or Yogi. Climbers will be mentioned soon.

2.) Jesus Christ

123rf.com

These are one of the most common chumps you’ll bump into while hiking. It’s pretty straight forward and easy to recognize these guys. Running into more than 3 Jesus Christs while hiking is a pretty normal thing. Many that read these fit this category pretty well. You look like a Yogi, but we know you’re not. So stop being a FAKE.

3.) Enlisted/Vets

Local12.com

If you think you see Chris Kyle while hiking? Don’t worry. It’s just another identical looking military veteran. It’s pretty easy to spot these guys. Just look for the short hair, beard, and American flag patch on his S.O.G. Backpack. Sometimes they’re with kids, sometimes alone. If they’re still enlisted, check for their boots. They might still be the same ones issued to them on their last deployment.

4.) Commando!

The trek.com

We know that there’s a debate between practicality and health when it comes to not wearing your undies while hiking. What isn’t a debate however, is seeing a lot of asscheek and a lot of nipples poking through shirts while on populated trails. No hate on either end, but sometimes even an outdoorsman can witness too much.

5.) DJ KHALED!

Alamy.com

I don’t know how many times it has to be addressed. It IS rude to blast your music while hiking. Most hikers try to get away from the material world and you’re bringing them right back in by listening to modern era radio music. Most of the time, it’s either rap or pop that these chumps listen to and sometimes, you don’t even need to see them to know where they’re at. Take a breath once in a while, smell the fresh air, and enjoy the natural world.

6.) The Good Boy/Girl

Dailypaws.com

Being the most wholesome on the list, the Good Boy/Girl is always a pleasure to see while hiking. Many receive the biggest of treats and pets for staying on the trail or finding the biggest stick to give to their owner. Very few and very sad individuals dislike this category.

7.) The Ultra

Massultra.com

Being the most hardcore on the list, these chumps will smoke anybody on the trail to obtain their new PR. Training for months at a time for one race, these guys/gals will always be seen from afar wearing their running shorts, headphones, and fanny packs booking it up or down to the trailhead. Respect for doing it, but everything isn’t a competition. Some haven’t learned that yet.

8.) Insta Hoe

Fineartamerica.com

Located at the trailheads or 1/4 of the way through. These chumps are always paying attention to their social media following and sponsorships instead of the natural world. Being in either large groups or solo, it’s best to stay away from these chumps because they tend to be very extroverted and have little to no knowledge of the trail itself. Clout>beauty to them.

9.) Rock Climbers

Hiconsumption.com

You can find these sweaty chumps off trail and high up. These guys may also qualify as Yogis depending on how into it they are. Parking near the trailheads in their vans, they either reside solo as a Boulder bro or in groups as sport/trad nerds. They are either really quiet and awkward or way too extroverted (there’s no in between). They’re a cult and always talk about their pumps.

10.) The Geezer

Picfair.com

Being spotted as soon as the park opens, these chumps know everything about the history of the park and have been through almost every scenario that you bring up. They’ll pass you and very loudly say “Good Morning!” Then make a dad joke that’ll make you exhale loudly when you pass them. They are slower because of their age, but they have been doing it since 75 baby!

Spider-Man No Way Home: The Sinister Six

Spider-Man and The Sinister Six

Ever since the video of a video of an Adobe Premier file containing the next entry in the Spider-Man (Home) series was leaked, the internet has been a buzz about what the film may entail and if fan speculation will ring true. One of the biggest theories surrounding the multiverse film is the idea that the main antagonists will be a group of villains from the collective Spider-Man franchise based around the comic book’s Sinister Six.

Who are The Sinister Six?

First things first, who are the Sinister Six exactly? While there are many different variants and versions throughout the decades and series of comics, the core Sinister Six debuted in January of 1964 and consisted of their leader, Doc Oc, Kraven the Hunter, Vulture, Sandman, Mysterio (not Rey), and Electro. Later iterations if the group would include Norman Osbourne’s Green Goblin, Scorpion, Ned Leeds’ Hob Goblin, Lizard, and more. Spanning several eras of comics and multiple universes The Sinister Six has seen its fair share of variety over the years, but if this is the direction Marvel and Sony plan on going for the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home title later this year, who will fill the role of the Six?

Doctor Octopus

At this time, the only visually confirmed villain to join the MCU family and feature in the upcoming Spider-Man flick is Otto Octavius, portrayed by Alfred Molina reprising his role from the 2004 Spider-Man 2 movie directed by Sam Raimi. This casting choice has lead many fans of the series to believe what they had been speculating on to be true, as Marvel dives down the rabbit hole of the multiverse, this leaves the door of possibility wide open for the return of the past Spider-Men including Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. While Otto serves as the head of the Sin. Six in the original comic, we are lead to believe that spot will most likely be filled by our next entry…

The Green Goblin

All but confirmed is Willem Defoe’s infamous Green Goblin from the same series. The Now Way Home trailer saw the use of a very familiar Pumpkin Bomb and an even more familiar laugh. Should Defoe’s Goblin be introduced into the MCU and this proposed Sinister Six, who better to take the helm than the on screen villain who started it all? For our comic accurate audience, The Green Goblin would lead the Sinister Six on a few different occasions but most notably during the formation of the Sinister Twelve.

Electro

Another seemingly locked villain is the return of Jamie Foxx’s Electro as Foxx may have spilled the beans earlier in the year promising a return to the role without the questionable Blue electric CGI. Foxx’s Electro would see the first introduction of the Andrew Garfield Amazing Spider-Man series into the multiverse. The presence of Electro is also heavily hinted at during the short trailer as we see several scenes of what appears to be an electrical storm, with classic yellow lightning nonetheless.

Vulture

Probably the farthest stretch for a return to the series is Michael Keaton’s Vulture from Spider-Man homecoming. We can’t rule him out because while the actor may be popping up on rival DC’s new Batman experiment, Keaton has not ruled out a return as the beloved Vulture. Filling in the Tom Holland era of Spider-Man villains, Vulture would be a much welcome and comic-accurate addition to the Six.

Sandman

Another villain fans have been piecing together based on trailer scenes is Thomas Haden Church’s iconic Sandman from the Raimi series. No one can say the original trilogy didn’t have phenomenal casting… well except Eric Foreman as Venom. Much like Electro, large Sandstorms and seemingly mountains of sand appear in the trailer even at one point being hit by a bolt of electric we can only assume was courtesy of Electro.

Sixth?

While the majority of these are still speculation, there is even more about the final lineup regarding a sixth member. Keep in mind while comic accurate references are always nice and have become more commonplace in the MCU, at the end of the day some divination from the origin isn’t the end of the world and not all comics can be seamlessly adapted to the big screen. We have a few proposed villains to fill out that sixth spot below, and we highly encourage you to let us know who YOU would cast for your Sinister Six.

Mysterio

Once again let me clarify, not Rey. Unlike some of the speculation surrounding previous entries, Mysterio is mentioned by name in the No Way Home Trailer. The only issue is, it’s mentioned in past tense as Peter Parker is questioned surrounding the Death of Mysterio. However there are no rules of time and space in the multiverse, we could 10/10 still see an appearance from Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio from a timeline before his death or even one where he is still alive. Canonically, Mysterio was a part of the original Sinister Six under Doctor Octopus.

Lizard

Another later meme bet of the Six, and another highly theorized addition to the lineup, some fans believe Lizard can be seen swiping at Peter during a brief scene in the trailer. While his role may not have been as Iconic as a Green Goblin or Doc Oc, The Lizard would see another entry from the Andrew Garfield era of the Spider-Man Franchise.

Scorpion

This one may come as a surprise but here me out. During the closing scene of Spider-Man: Homecoming we witness Michael Keaton’s Vulture being into his jail cell when he has an intriguing encounter with another inmate boasting a very recognizable scorpion tattoo. The two exchange some words about Spider-Man before the movie cuts to black. Could we finally be seeing the long-awaited debut of Scorpion? If Keaton decides to reprise his role as Vulture, I’d say the odds are significantly better, if nothing else than for a minor cameo role.

Hob Goblin

We spoke earlier about the use of Pumpkin bombs signaling the return of Defoe’s Green Goblin to the big screen. However, a few skeptics are saying this could be a ploy on Marvel’s part to reintroduce the Hob Goblin. While Harry Osbourne, the James Franco version, maybe a little unlikely due to some personal legal encounters, there is another Hob Goblin yet to be seen. Ned Leeds takes over the role of Parker’s best friend for the No Way Home Series but this character has a more significant role as well should the comics be any indication. Ned Leeds can be seen during the trailer under investigation for the alleged crimes Spider-Man has committed. We get a little more to this as we can hear Peter explaining how all of the publicity is hurting the people around him. Will this be the plot to lead Mr. Leeds in his endeavors against Spider-Man as the Hob Goblin? Hey, it’s comic-friendly!

These are just a few options of possible villains we could be seeing in the up-and-coming Spider-Man: No Way Home movie set for this Christmas. Let’s us know who YOU think should be featured in the film and what you thought of our list below! Check out more articles just like this one right here as well!

Things you didn’t know about Grey’s Anatomy

There have been so many seasons that it’s crazy how many things that nobody knows.

Bokhee is a real life scrub nurse.

She may not say much, but she’s been a staple background character of the show for years.

And according to a 2013 tweet from Sandra Oh, who played Cristina Yang, Bokhee really knows what she’s doing.

“The nurse in that scene, Bokhee, is a real surgical nurse,” Oh wrote. “She’s been with us since the beginning. She’s like my 2nd mom, she’s the best.”

The medical Jargan is all correct.

According to McKenna Princing, who wrote about being a medical advisor on the show for UW Medicine in 2017, the series employs real doctors to make sure the writers are getting some procedures and jargon right.

But until the advisors filled in the jargon, the writers just put “medical medical” as placeholder text in the script, according to show creator Shonda Rhimes’ book “Year of Yes.”

Rhimes wrote, “Meredith will say, ‘I need a medical medical to medical!’ And someone else will go, ‘Well I have medical medical.’ ‘Well hand me the medical!”

She also revealed that on the show “Scandal,” it’s “political political.”

Only three members remain from the original season.

After over 300 episodes, Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey), Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey), and James Pickens Jr. (Richard Webber) are the only original leads who are still on the series.  

Derek and Mer had a real wedding registry.

People reported in 2009 that the fictional couple had a real wedding registry on The Knot.

It encouraged fans to donate to research organizations that Derek and Meredith would have approved of, like the American Academy of Neurology Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Association.

there are many more things that fans had no idea about stick around for next weeks list…

Grey’s Anatomy Scrub Colors?

Scrubs are the short sleeved shirts and pants or gowns worn by nurses, surgeons, and any other operating room personnel when “scrubbing in” for surgery, worn under sterile surgical gowns.

The wearing of scrubs has been extended outside of surgery in many hospitals. Scrubs are now worn by any hospital personnel in any clean environment, for cleanliness and hygiene issues, and are worn under lab coats.

Grey’s Anatomy

All staff at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital have a standardized set of scrubs that is usually worn by the staff, if some form of formal wear is not worn. Different colors in scrubs indicate which department and/or rank they are:

  • Surgical attendings/fellows wear navy scrubs
  • Surgical interns and residents wear light blue scrubs
  • ER residents wear brown scrubs
  • Psychiatry residents wear beige scrubs
  • Nursing staff generally wear green scrubs
  • Scrub nurses generally wear the same light blue scrubs as surgical interns and residents
  • Dermatology residents wear peach scrubs
  • Diagnostic staff (e.g., pathologists, radiologists, techs, etc.) wear gray scrubs
  • OB/GYN attendings and residents wear purple or light pink scrubs
  • Oncology residents and nurses in the oncology outpatient clinic wear red scrubs
  • Infectious disease staff wear yellow scrubs
  • Clinic staff wear turquoise scrubs

The standard scrub caps are light blue fabric scrub caps as worn by residents, and attendings have navy blue scrub caps although some have personalized scrub caps. Paper/plastic scrub caps are available as well, including hair nets available to non-medical personnel in the OR (more frequently the case in caesarean sections where the partner is present).

Private Practice

All staff at St. Ambrose have scrubs, and all medical staff on the show have been shown to wear purple scrubs, and the nursing staff appears to wear blue scrubs.

The female staff at Oceanside Wellness Group also have their own pink/purple scrubs, which are worn by both doctors and nurses. Dell has blue scrubs (similar to that of St. Ambrose nursing staff) as part of his conditions of working at the center and Pete has his own set of black scrubs. Most staff have their own personalized scrub caps.

Notes and Trivia

  • Visitors to Seattle Grace Hospital who perform surgeries or are present in the O.R. wear attending scrubs. However, Colin Marlow wore black scrubs, and Erica Hahn wore red scrubs when she was still employed by Seattle Presbyterian Hospital.
  • Personalized scrub caps can be enlarged and shaped to be more of a hair net to accommodate extra hair, as in the case of Margaret Campbell.
  • Mark Sloan was the only main character attending without a personalized scrub cap. This was later modeled by his protégé, Jackson Avery, who is the only other main character to have completed residency as of season nine not to have a personalized scrub cap.
  • In A Hard Day’s Night, Bailey wore a personalized scrub cap, but in every subsequent surgery until she finished her residency, she wore the plain light blue caps.
  • In Grey’s Anatomy, although surgical attendings wear navy scrubs, OB/GYN attendings still wear pink scrubs.
    • Addison, though she was the OB/GYN head, most likely wore navy scrubs because she’s also the neonatal head, practicing neonatal surgeries.
    • Perinatologists and maternal-fetal medicine fellows do not wear pink scrubs, as they practice fetal surgeries and wear navy scrubs.
    • Some OB/GYN attendings opt to wear navy scrubs.
  • In Grey’s Anatomy, no attending anesthesiologists have been shown to wear personalized scrub caps
  • In Grey’s Anatomy, Some hospitals use other colors for scrubs
    • Seattle Presbyterian Hospital uses red scrubs
    • Mercy West Medical Center used orange or gray scrubs
    • Mayo Clinic and Tufts Medical Center use dark green scrubs.
    • Dillard Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, and Bauer Army Medical Center used blue-green scrubs.
    • Columbia University Medical Center used turquoise scrubs.
