Hey, what are you doing on Saturday? Coming out and joining me in Downtown Riverside to check out all of the amazing new alternative fuel vehicles that the Western Riverside Council of Governments will have on display, of course! With gas prices testing that $5 a gallon mark, this is your chance to not only get up close and personal with some of the newest technology out there, but to actually get behind the wheel and drive some of these cool machines. The all electric Coda Sedan, the Nissan Leaf, the Honda Civic CNG (natural gas), the Chevy Volt, a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, and a classic early 1900′s electric vehicle, will all be there for you to poke and prod and slide into without any sales pressure. Just a great way to get a real idea about what kind of options you have to going broke filling up your tank.
I’ll be out there with the KCAL Crew from 10am to 2pm breaking out some great KCAL stuff for you, like tickets to the Perris Auto Speedway, Knotts tickets, Haunted House tickets and more. So when you’re out and about on Saturday, stop and by and check us out. It is going to be happening at 10th and Main St. in Downtown Riverside (City Hall Parking Lot #34). See you there!
In case you missed this on Jimmy Kimmel last night!

October 22nd, 1990. Pearl Jam’s first live show at a little place called the Off Ramp Cafe in Seattle. Except they weren’t called Pearl Jam yet, they were Mookie Blaylock. And Eddie Vedder had just joined up with them a couple of weeks before and, although they hadn’t recorded any yet, they’d written some really great songs. Like this one, the very first live performance of Black by a very shy looking Eddie. Pretty damn cool that someone had a camcorder recording, ain’t it? And big thanks to Rolling Stone Magazine’s web site, from which I stole this post!
