Walking on air After six months of silence, Chico State’s student-run radio station KCSC will finally be making some noise again this month.

Station manager Matt Kiser, who might also be the most handsome devil ever to play in a punk band, and the rest of the staff return to the airwaves Monday (Nov. 27) at 10 a.m.

The Internet-only radio station will also hold a public open house Nov. 30, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2 p.m., at its new digs across from Tacos De Acapulco (in the Rainbow Warehouse on the corner of Fifth and Ivy) with refreshments and unabashed good times.

The station has been out of commission since it was told to vacate the old Reynolds Warehouse building on the corner of Second and Cherry streets, which was demolished to make way for the Wildcat Activity Center.

Killer instincts Just when I was getting all hot and bothered about this new O.J. Simpson book, where he “hypothetically” details how he would have murdered his wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman, News Corp. goes and kills it. Not only that, they axed the television special that was supposed to air on the Fox network (just in time for sweeps month), where Simpson was to be interviewed by, not a journalist, but the book’s publisher, Judith Regan.

The book and accompanying TV special, If I Did It, were, of course, lambasted by … well just about everyone on the planet with a pulse.

“I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project,” said anti-Christ Rupert Murdoch, chairman of News Corp., which owns everybody and everything including Fox, MySpace and HarperCollins, the publisher of the book.

A bloody genius, that Rupert Murdoch … I’d kill to be him.

Christmas is the bomb! All this preparation for the holidays is driving me crazy. I’m not talking about Thanksgiving and Christmas, either. I’m gearing up for the Fourth of July. I mean, the sooner the better right?

I went to Costco about a week before Halloween and they already had snowmen and lights and garland and I think there were even some fruitcakes already out.

So in the spirit of getting a head start, I’ve already stocked my shelves with more cases of Bud Light than a Fifth Street frat party and enough illegal fireworks to mount a legitimate invasion of North Korea.

And with that I say, “Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!”

Yule loggy log OK, so I did take in some festivities at the Christmas Preview last Sunday—had to check out The Yule Logs, who were bouncing from corner to corner. If you haven’t seen them, The Logs will be playing all over Chico through December, kicking things off at Chico Cabaret Nov. 30 at 8 p.m. Get yourself a little sampling at

A walk in the park I also checked out the City Plaza this weekend. What can I say, it looks great. I guess the naysayers are just going to have to get used to it, since those same naysayers are probably never going to leave this town anyway. Walk through. Try it on for size …

Tryptophane coma, here I come
