DMX’s passing last week made his autobiography get back on the best seller lists. The music got a little boost as well.  His music and videos went up by 928 percent on April 9th and 10th. A total of 75.7 million on-demand streams of DMX’s material were made on those two days. DMX died on April 9th at the age of 50.  

The guitar Kirk Hammett used in Metallica’s very first music video, 1989’s “One”, opened in bidding at $21,000 a little over a week ago. On April 7th it was at just $26,000. It just sold to an anonymous buyer at auction for $112,500.

The Wednesdave Dave Grohl Updave:  Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones teamed up with THE Dave Grohl to release a surprise song about coming out of the pandemic. The Rolling Stones singer and the Foo Fighters frontman put out “Eazy Sleazy” yesterday. The 77 year old Jagger said… thank you to Dave Grohl for jumping on drums, bass and guitar, it was a lot of fun working with you on this-hope you all enjoy Eazy Sleazy!”   

WILLIE NELSON wrote a letter to President Biden asking him to make the “High Holidays” an official National Holiday.  There’s also a petition at Change.org. If you’re not familiar, Willie and his fellow marijuana advocates consider April 20th through the 29th as the “High Holidays.”  April 20th is the infamous 4/20 . . . and April 29th is Willie’s birthday.  (He’ll be 88.) Now, if you’re already on board with this, then you probably know about Willie’s “first annual cannabis convention.”  It’s a virtual event called Luck Summit: Planting the Seed, and it’s going down April 26th through the 29th.  NATHANIEL RATELIFF is the host and there will be performances, cooking demonstrations, comedy routines, and other weed-related stuff.  They hope to “destigmatize, educate, and promote cannabis culture.” Tickets start at $10, and proceeds will benefit something called the HeadCount Cannabis Voter Project, which is a pro-cannabis organization. 

Hayley Hasselhoff has become the first ever curve model to cover Playboy and revealed her famous father was ‘supportive’ of her posing nude. The plus-size model, 28, who’s the daughter of The Hoff, 68, says he believes in her and trusts the choices she makes for her career. She competed on Celebrity X Factor in 2019. Doing the shoot she felt ’empowered’   Hayley, the youngest daughter of David and actress Pamela Bach, 57. She said: ‘There are a few photos that are tastefully nude where I’m topless. 

Fans of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” might appreciate this:  The Pittsburgh house where FRED ROGERS lived in the late-’50s and early-’60s is on the market.  The asking price is $850,000. While Fred was living here, he was attending the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and worked as a composer, organist, and puppeteer on “The Children’s Corner”. And, if it’s any more enticing, he also had sex at the house . . . REPEATEDLY.  (???)  At least we’re 95% sure of that.  Fred and his wife Joanne had their two sons at that time . . . James, who was born in 1959 and John, who was born in 1961.Zillow

Sorry for the reminder but there’s a “Home Alone” reboot in the works at Disney+, and it’s almost done. KENAN THOMPSON is in it, and he says, quote, “It was a long shoot . . . [it] got shut down and came back around because of the pandemic and stuff . . . but I think they’re getting very close to finishing it.” To their credit, they’re not just copying the plot of the original.  This one stars Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney as, quote, “Adults who go to war with a kid who has stolen a priceless heirloom in order to save their home from financial ruin.” The kid is played by Archie Yates from “JoJo Rabbit”.  He was JoJo’s friend Yorki. – EW

Actor JALEEL WHITE of Family Matters is getting into the weed game in real life.  He’s launching “ItsPurpl,” a new cannabis line he developed in a collaboration with 710 Labs. In an interview with “Forbes, Jaleel said that it’s loosely based on the bootleg “Purple Urkel” strain, which has been using Urkel’s image for years. He said, quote, “The thing that always stood out to me was there no clear brand leader for fire purple weed.  It made no sense to me, that no [one] of significance had claimed this lane, so why not me?” He helped develop the “ItsPurpl” line during the pandemic, and he loves how it turned out.  Quote, “To smoke the end result, from such a quality pod, has been surreal. “I feel a little bit like Willy Wonka, the flavor came out so similar to grape candy.” – Forbes

If I say the name Sally Struthers who do you think of I think the daughter on archie Bunker and I think Save the Children. Desolte living conditions and hungry kids. She did that for about 35 years. Notice she stopped? Know why? Not covid.  She had flown into Uganda on a small plane to meet one of the kids she was sponsoring.

“They brought [the child] from his village, which was quite a few hours away. He had traveled to come meet his sponsor, to meet me, and I made some commercials with him, and I played with him and I brought him toys and balloons,” Struthers said. “Well, a roving band of guerrilla warfare guys came out of the bushes and asked [him] where he was from, and he named his village, which was far away, and they decided that we had kidnapped him, and they were going to shoot all of us.” The priest, who happened to speak the same language as the men, instructed Struthers to back away, without turning her back to them, and they all survived.  “I thought, ‘I’ve been on so many little airplanes that could have crashed and in so many horrible situations.’ I came back from one of my trips overseas with hepatitis.” Struthers said. “I thought, ‘What am I doing? I’ve got a child, a real-life child of my own, and I’m gonna make her an orphan. I can’t do this anymore.'”

The Cardinals took on the Nationals last night and its safe to say that the bats woke up.  The Cardinals put up 14 on their way to a 14-3 win.  Paul Goldschmidt, Nolan Arenado, and Matt Carpenter all went deep in the win.  Goldie went 2-4 with 3 RBI.  Arenado went 2-3 with 3 RBI.  Same for Carp.  Jack Flaherty picked up his 2nd win of the season.  This afternoon the two teams are back at it.  Adam Wainwright gets the 12:15PM start.

The Blues will take on the Avalanche tonight at Enterprise Center.  Puck drop is scheduled for 6:30PM.  The Blues were scheduled to play the Wild on Monday, but that game was postponed because everything that is happening in Minnesota right now with the officer involved shooting.

Houston attorney Tony Buzbee said in a statement Tuesday night that his law firm will amend all of the lawsuits filed against Deshaun Watson to disclose the names of the plaintiffs, “even those not currently subject to any court order.” The lawsuits, all originally filed on behalf of Jane Does from March 16 to April 2, allege inappropriate behavior and sexual assault against the quarterback. Watson’s lawyer told the NFL Network on Tuesday that one of the women who filed one of the 22 lawsuits has dropped her civil case against Watson. On Friday, two judges ruled that most of the plaintiffs suing Watson must identify themselves.  In his statement on Tuesday, Buzbee said that while Watson “may now claim he had consent to do what he did” to these women, “in their minds he didn’t have consent.”

Players from the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not formally report to their respective team facilities next week to begin voluntary offseason workouts. In their statement, the Broncos players cited rising COVID-19 positivity rates in Denver and surrounding communities, as well as the lack of “adequate protocols in place.” Sources told ESPN that the players voted to take this action and notified coach Vic Fangio earlier Tuesday morning that the vote had taken place.

The Cardinals signed running back James Conner to a one-year contract on Tuesday. Conner, 25, spent his first four NFL seasons with the Steelers. He ran for a career-high 973 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2018, but his production has fallen off in recent seasons. Conner ran for just 721 yards on 169 carries last year before undergoing toe surgery.  Conner is expected to split carries with Chase Edmonds in 2021. Arizona finished third in the NFC West in 2020 at 8–8. The Cardinals enter 2021 seeking their first playoff appearance since 2015.
