The Lucas Cates Band hails from Madison, WI. Like Geffen Record's Garbage, this band has the potential to be Madison's next big act. Three years into the making of this pop/rock group reveals a momentum that, as an independent, is like no other. The Lucas Cates Band has two full-length albums; music videos; national tours; AAA, college, and international radio presence; five web pages; appearances on morning shows around the country; ten Madison Area Music Awards, and a song picked up by the Cincinnati Ballet as a modern dance piece. The band released their sophomore CD recently in Madison, WI. Aptly entitled "All the Pieces," this CD is an eclectic mix of ballads, mid-tempo, and up-tempo numbers that range in style from rock to pop to alternative country to acoustic. All of the songs on the CD were written by Lucas Cates and arranged by the band. The CD was independently produced and pressed. TLCB is taking their music to the road. The band's tours will take them across the nation, and music fans will enjoy the opportunity to see this talented young band in many differing locales. Now introducing, The Lucas Cates Band.

It's been discovered that the highest paid city employee in Madison, Wisconsin, is not the mayor ... or the chief of police ... but a local bus driver.
John E. Nelson netted $159,258 last year, including $109,892 in overtime pay. He earned just a little more than his co-worker, who banked $125,598.
They're among a group of seven bus drivers who made more than $100,000 last year -- because of a union contract that lets the most senior drivers with the highest base salaries get first shot at overtime.
Metro general manager Chuck Kamp called Nelson and his highly paid co-workers "senior drivers with excellent safety and customer service records."

Sometimes, things need a makeover -- that includes 145-year-old candy. Sweethearts, the popular heart candy that people eat on Valentine's Day, is getting an upgrade.
The candy's parent company, Necco, has asked Twitter to come up with some new messages to print on the candy hearts. So, added to the usual "Be Mine," "Kiss Me," and "Love Me" messages will be "Text Me," "Tweet Me," and "Love Bug" (as in the Jonas Brothers song).

It happened at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg on January 29... and was caught by another fan on camera. I can only imagine that the Crüe would have approved of such activity and given the chance... invited the pair on stage!Anyhoo... if you’re so inclined, you can check out the incident below.

SEX ADDICT QUESTIONAIRE
The Sexual Addiction Screening Test (SAST) is designed to assist in the assessment of sexually compulsive behavior which may indicate the presence of sex addiction. Developed in cooperation with hospitals, treatment programs, private therapists, and community groups, the SAST provides a profile of responses which help to discriminate between addictive and non-addictive behavior.
