He’s the man who ended the “pay it forward” line at Starbucks

Most of you are familiar with the “pay it forward” concept; you’re at the drive up window and pay for your order…and also for the person in line behind you.  Many of you have probably even participated.

Well, a Starbucks store in St. Petersburg, Florida recently had a string of 457 “pay it forwards”…until it was ended by a local blogger.

Now, before we all barbeque this gentleman…you might consider his reason for ending the string of nice gestures.  “I just don’t want to be forced into doing something,” said Peter Schorsch, who is also a political consultant. “This is turning into a social phenomenon and I had to put an end to it.”

It should be noted that he gave the barista a $100 tip.

Brad Paisley to perform on “Rising Star” finale

The inagural season of the latest in televised singing competitions is almost complete.

ABC’s new series “Rising Star” will air the season finale this Sunday night.  He, along with Kesha and Ludacris, have been mentoring those singers who had enough talent to cause the American public to “like” them…thus raising a curtain and properly introducing them to the world.

Brad will be performing a single from his new album “Moonshine In The Trunk”, which will be released on Monday.  Apparently, he’s enjoyed his time on the new primetime show.  “What really surprised me is my favorite part of it is the mentoring — is getting to know these kids and trying to give them the right song.”, said Paisley.

While he’s been mentoring rocker Jesse Kinch…he’s not shy about supporting his longtime favorite Audrey Geiger (who’s a Ludacris protogee).

Again, the finale is this Sunday night on ABC TV, airing at 8pm central.
