Paul Newman's Rigatoni Spaghetti Sauce

In Travel Channel's new series, The Osbournes Want to Believe, Jack Osbourne is determined to make his parents full-fledged paranormal believers.

Jack reunites with Ozzy and Sharon to share the craziest, most jaw-dropping videos of supernatural activity ever caught on camera. The couple will review – and critique – each caught-on-camera moment, a compilation of Jack's favorite pieces of evidence.

The Osbournes have now starred in television shows on MTV, CBS, NBC, Fox, E!, History, Syfy, and Travel Channel.

Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100
I've been through a number of toothbrushes and this Sonicare one is what I've landed on. It just zaps around your teeth. Oral B's are too flimsy and don't have enough strength. This Sonicare has a really good, fast spin — I think it's even better than the $300 Sonicare DiamondClean, which I also have in case this one isn't charged.

With the working title of "Chris Rock," the album's first single "Sabotage" sat unused for a year, lacking a vocal part. Then, after angrily confronting paparazzi at the funeral of River Phoenix, Ad-Rock rapped out his anger.


I need to watch that documentary.

SOUL COUGHING – $300 (El Oso, 1998)
Mike: "My very favourite Soul Coughing recording. The vibe, the texture of the recording, the jam at the end. It's a very succinct jam. A rare quality in jams.

The writing of it came from three factors:

one, drum and bass, which I was really into (I briefly lived in London and used to go to Goldie's Metalheadz night on Hoxton Square on Sundays; my favourites were Grooverider and Doc Scott—those dubplates!);

that buzzing open guitar tuning, which I started using on everything;

and the sample of Chris Rock saying, "…how much? She said, for $300, I'll do any…" That's from a track that played backwards on [Rock's comedy album] Roll With the New. I put it in my ASR-10 sampler, loaded it up, and reversed it—I was just curious what he was saying."
