FIRST off I have to confess I AM WIRED MAN! There is a bran- new product out and completely rocks! Called, say it slow RED BULL COLA! WOW i found this stuff and i think it was invented for people who get way really really early! I know Jim West is a HUGE FAN of the energy drinks and I always tell hi to drink more water, but dang it they are good...... Allow me to explain.....
From the makers of one of the original energy drinks comes Red Bull Cola, a new cola with a twist. It's the first major brand extension for the company and they're setting it apart from other similar soft drinks and from Red Bull itself by taking pride in being "strong and natural." We were pleasantly surprised by just how different from its cousin it is.
Without taurine or any other secret formula, Red Bull Cola is more about taste than it is about partying all night long. Using all-natural ingredients (the caffeine is even extracted from coffee beans) and plant extracts — including kola nut, cacao, ginger, vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, lemon, lime and coca leaf to name a few — it has a complex spiced flavor with that classic cola taste.
Falling somewhere between Pepsi and Coca Cola, it's a bit on the sweet side (though happily it has no high fructose corn syrup) and it reminds me of RC Cola. The carbonated sting is fairly strong but refreshing and followed by a lemon and lime-dominated aftertaste.
While there are always several companies that try to bully their way into the cola market, most fail in the face of the reigning behemoths. But, after becoming slightly obsessed when we first tasted it at a party, we'd wager that Red Bull Cola has some staying power. Naturally, it also allows the brand to further integrate themselves in the club and bar market.
It's already released in parts of Europe and in Las Vegas in the States, but due to the natural ingredients it will be phased in globally. Nonetheless, expect it to hit the shelves of your local grocer sometime later this year or in early 2009. Have a look at the website for more info.

Burger King's tremendously successful Whopper Sacrifice application on Facebook was suspended Wednesday by the social network. "Facebook has disabled Whopper Sacrifice after your love of The Whopper sandwich proved to be stronger than 232,654 friendships," says a note currently on the front page of WhopperSacrifice.com. Facebook has responded by saying the application is merely being tweaked for privacy reasons. Officials at the social network didn't like that it alerted people who had been "un-friended" as part of the application.
THIS was very sad....
Ricardo Montalban, the Mexican-born actor who became a household name as Mr. Roarke in TV's Fantasy Island died Wednesday morning at his home. He was 88.

Awesome piece done by MSNBC
THINGS THAT WILL BE DIFFERENT IN 2009
• Your mom’s on Facebook. It doesn’t matter how old you are, just accept the fact that your mom’s going to join Facebook to keep up with family and friends, and she’s going to be asking to be your friend, too! Which means, she’ll be able to see everything you post on your page. So, now’s the time to delete the embarrassing party pictures or snarky comments visitors have posted.
• Washington’s the new Hollywood. Although president-elect Barack Obama doesn’t want to look like a celebrity, he rubbed elbows with plenty of them during his campaign. He’ll want to keep A-list stars close enough to help fund his reelection, but not so close that it's bad for the White House image. Even though the Secret Service can keep the paparazzi away, as long as first daughters Sasha and Malia sell magazines, a lot of reporters will be willing to go to any length for a story.
• Late-night TV is changing. Whether you think it’s smart or silly to move Jay Leno to primetime, at least NBC is mixing things up.Who knows whether other late-nighters like David Letterman and Conan O’Brien will follow suit, but Leno's move definitely has the TV year off to an interesting start.
• Weekly magazines like Time, Newsweek, and Woman’s World may not stay weekly. The prediction from MSNBC is that with fewer advertising dollars to go around, some weekly magazines will start publishing every other week and some will discontinue their print versions altogether, and exist only as Websites.
• One final change to expect during 2009: More happy endings. When times are tough, the public’s not so interested in sensational crimes, political scandals or celebrity rumors. With more people staying home, TV will become more important – and viewers will want to see hopeful stories, upbeat movies, and happy endings. After all, Shirley Temple rode “The Good Ship Lollipop” to success through the Great Depression and you can expect similar cheerful entertainment today.
The BRAIN BUSTER Q&A this morning:
The Denny's restaurant chain will be doing something this year that it's never done before. Ever. What? (Advertise during the Super Bowl)
