About Lynette Carolla, Jay Miller, and Carolla Drinks

Lynette Carolla grew up in Souther California with her Italian parents and brothers. At age 7, Lynette’s parents enrolled her in SAG/AFTRA and got her an agent. During her youth she’s booked several acting jobs including a commercial for Cadillac, an ABC TV movie of the week, and a Mighty Carson Art Player on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

Growing up in the industry, her father Richard was an advertising director at a local television station, Lynette knew she didn’t want to be an actress. She was interested in the business side of television. Starting her career working in syndication sales for companies for the big four networks, she quickly learned the process of developing, producing and syndicating for TV with many shows such as Roseanne, Third Rock From The Sun, and That 70’s Show.

At the age of 25, Lynette was working for Brandon Tartikoff’s New World Entertainment when she met a young, struggling comedian at the beginning of his career, Adam Carolla. Adam had just finished shooting a pilot for FOX affiliates called Loveline based on his radio show with Dr. Drew. In 1997, Lynette moved over to ABC Television as manager of Programming and Scheduling for Primetime. In 2002, Adam and Lynette were married, and in ’06 their twins Santino and Natalia were born.

In 2009, Adam started his own podcasting network and Lynette started a podcast which she still hosts twice a week titled For Crying Out Loud with her co-host and bestselling author/comedian, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, where they discuss everything from raising twins to relationship woes of being in a longterm marriages, to Netflix series and books they’re obsessed with. Nothing is off limits, which unfortunately leads to uncomfortable situations such as Parent Nights at the kids schools.

***

When Lynette was 4 months pregnant, Adam’s pal Jimmy Kimmel saw Lynette struggling with groceries up the stairs. He suggested they hire a friend of his family who was moving out from Chicago, Jay Miller. He started as Lynette’s assistant, carrying groceries, housework and buying baby formula. After the twins were born in 2006 Jay went on to be Adam’s personal assistant working out of their home in Hollywood, CA. Jay did everything from coordinating travel, setting meetings to ordering car parts, organizing Adam’s home garage and refurbishing Adam’s growing car collection. Because of Adam’s busy schedule Jay was often left in charge of major projects involving construction at Adam’s home. Jay oversaw the demolishment to the building of Adam’s super garage which was featured on the cover of Fast Company magazine in 2009.

***

Adam often talked about making himself a high octane, wine cocktail at home called Mangria on his popular podcast, The Adam Carolla Show, which resulted in calls from Napa. The winery asked if he was interested in actually bottling the cocktail, they would be happy to send over a few samples to try and narrow down the perfect formula. Once the signature Red Mangria gained popularity, they developed a new white flavor, followed by the Brose.

Adam being as busy as Adam always is, he handed the alcohol brand over to Lynette to run as she was adiment that females would love the product as well — even though ‘Man’ was in the title. Having no experience in the alcohol industry, no seed money other than what was being provided by the Carollas, Lynette recruited their adoptive son, Jay Miller. It made perfect sense to have Jay partner up with Lynette to launch Mangria and take it to the next level. With Jay’s law degree, his connections and knowledge of the alcohol industry, plus being a member of the Carolla family, Jay decided to go full time building the Carolla Drinks brand.

In Jan of 2016, a brewery out of Redondo Beach showed up at one of Adam’s live shows and offered him a few samples to take home of their IPA beer. Jay knew the guys from King Harbor and helped them facilitate a deal with Carolla Drinks. Within 4 months the launch of King Harbor’s Adam Carolla’s Endless Rant IPA was born and launched at Adam’s Toyota Grand Prix race last year.

Carolla Drinks is powered by Lynette Carolla as CEO and Brand Ambassador, with Jay Miller who is the COO, CTO as well as head of Marketing and Distribution. Carolla Drinks is unique, and unlike the majority of celebrity endorsed alcohol beverage companies on the market, as it is solely funded and ran by the Carolla’s personally. Carolla Drinks is a grassroots, boots on the ground, family owned and operated company. Relying on the loyal Adam Carolla fanbase to spread the word and having a solid, good tasting product that puts the brand above all others. The Carolla Digital employees who work for Adam at the podcast studio daily, have been embraced by his audience and have grown to be known as The Lackeys. Today The Lackeys travel with Lynette and Jay around the country nationally hosting their infamous Carolla Drinks Bar Crawls.

“As a nightly consumer of red wine, I was shocked one evening to find I had just half a glass left in the bottle. So I did what any decent alcoholic, ex-con, American would do… I went to the fridge and the liquor cabinet, then poured, mixed and measured. Thus Mangria was born.” — Adam Carolla

This Wednesday, March 29 on SuicideGirls Radio, hosts Nicole Powers and Bradley Suicide will be joined by Minnesota hip-hop artist Mod Sun, who’ll be giving us the behind-the-scenes gossip on his new album, Movie.

You can listen – and watch – SuicideGirls Radio live on Wednesday nights from 8 til 9 PM at our state-of-the-art, all digital home on zinna.tv or on our Facebook page via Facebook LIVE!

About Mod Sun

29-year-old Mod Sun is emerging as a pillar in the hip hop scene of Minnesota. With an uncanny ability to tinker with the boundaries of creativity, Sun has emerged as a rising star in the congested world of rap.

Born in Bloomington, Mod Sun developed a strong adoration for everything music related. At a young age, he clung to The Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan, Blink 182, and Charles Hamilton as his sources of inspiration. With two supportive parents sprinkling huge doses of hope and love, Mod grew increasingly obsessed with the idea of one day chasing his dreams.

With an expansive musical palette that consisted of rock and hip hop, Mod Sun became a multi-faceted star in both arenas. At 17, he dipped his hands in the rock world when he joined the local band Four Letter Lie. His journey with the group allowed him to experience tour life for the very first time. Then, at 20, the precocious musician flexed his talent on the drums when he joined his next band Scary Kids Scaring Kids.

Due to his ability to wow the crowd as a drummer, the group allowed him to serve as an opener for their tour. Despite a few rough performances, Sun realized his potential to shine as a solo act. The high of performing in places like Australia and New Zealand was too much for him to overlook. Because of that, he drifted away from the rock world and pursued rap full-time. With no help on the production front, he released his first mixtape, I’ll Buy Myself in 2009.

“The reason I didn’t start putting out Mod Sun music earlier is because I always wanted to step away from the drums. The only reason I didn’t earlier is because I knew no one in Minnesota that made beats. I knew nothing about making beats. So, I had to figure out the program and learn how to make my own beats. The first song I ever recorded rapping is on that album.”

With a voracious appetite for success, Mod churned out five more mixtapes and three EPs before releasing his first album Look Up in 2015 with Rostrum Records. Laced with refreshing, mood quenching songs like “Free Love”, “Goddess”, and “My Hippy”, it was easy to see why Mod won over Benjy Grinberg – the President of Rostrum Records.

The day I signed to Rostrum, I threw a pool party at my house in North Hollywood – the original Hippy Hideout. That’s where we were at when I signed my contract. I had the whole team over. It all started a month prior to that day when I signed the contract at my house, as well. Benjy – the owner of Rostrum – came over to my house in North Hollywood. We sat down and listened to Look Up . Out of all of the songs I played, Benjy stopped me at ‘My Favorite Shirt Is My Skin’ and he made run it back. That’s what did it for me.”

After showcasing his artistry with some of Billboard’s biggest darlings in G. Eazy and Machine Gun Kelly on his debut album, Mod realized for his second go-around that evolution would be essential. With the world becoming a drearier place, his sophomore album Movie will be the project to not only re-instill that much needed happiness to smile again, but to illustrate his growth as an artist.

With Bobby Johnson, Arthur McArthur, and Don Cannon playing instrumental roles in crafting Mod’s new sound for Movie , the Minnesota star will be swimming in new waters creatively for his second album.

“The shit we did together is something totally brand new for me. That’s kind of the basis of the new album. It’s kind of in a way a reinvention of what I’ve been doing with a concept I’ve been working with this whole time,” says Sun.

He adds, “I have a new song on this album called “Beautiful Problems” with Maty Noyes and Gnash. We have a song together that’s seriously going to be on every radio station. It is really going to be. The reason all of that is possible is because I’ve stepped out and took a risk on trying new things.”

Mod Sun will be heading out on a national tour on April 4 to support the album. Dates can be found here: bandsintown.com/modsun

About Bryce Fox

LA-based alternative rock singer Bryce Fox debuted his “funky, smooth” new single “Coldhearted” on March 17, 2017 via Billboard.com. The Frequency and Aalias produced track was the follow up single to Bryce’s first hit, “Horns,” which currently sits at almost 5 million streams on Spotify, and counting. 

“I was feeling an overwhelming sense of under achievement at the time,” Bryce explains in a recent interview with Billboard. “Not everyone is cut out for the music and entertainment industry and battling the lows (and highs) can be consuming and soul sucking. I want to inspire people of the least ‘expecting’ to gain the confidence to be artistic and passionate about their career path. To be proud of where you come from. To be good to humans. And when you have a chance to choose to be the dog or the dog food, you choose neither.”

About Chill With SG and Lowell Farms

Most of us who are familiar with SuicideGirls are aware that the company has held hands with the cannabis industry for quite some time. So in 2016 when they decided to start a line branded with the sexy ladies of SuicideGirls.com the progression just came naturally.

Branded as Chill With SG, the company now owns their own medical cannabis farm in Santa Barbara where they are not only organic and pesticide free, but also pay their farmers fair wages and employ a predominantly female staff.

In the beginning, the product line consisted of three full gram vaporizer cartridges called Hustle, Chill, & Zero. It wasn’t long before the SG Crew decided to start producing other products as well. Now boasting several strains of flower and high end prerolled joints, all packaged beautifully and rolled by hand, under the name of their second brand from the same farm, Lowell Farms.

The company saw a huge boost when Cosmopolitan did a write up of Lowell’s Valentine’s Bouquets filled with smokable flower and delivered in rose boxes to eager lovebirds. The Cosmo article went viral and the bouquets were talked about on late night TV shows and by large social media influencers. Needless to say, everyone now wants to get their hands on the Chill With SG and Lowell Products.

You can find a list of dispensaries that carry Chill With SG and Lowell Farms products at chill.suicidegirls.com and lowellsmokes.com.

Notorious Los Angeles Street Artist Plastic Jesus has again caused Academy Award controversy by placing a life size Oscar statue on Hollywood Blvd. Unlike the official faceless gold figurines, this one is a likeness of Kanye West — and is entitled “False Idol”!

The Kanye likeness features tightly cropped hair, neck chains, and is wearing a pair of Yeezy shoes. In previous years the British born guerrilla artist has created a cocaine snorting Oscar statue, a gold plated stripper on a pole, and a heroin injecting figure following the drug-related death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. The artist claims his street installations are to highlight issues which are going unnoticed in the glitzy world of Hollywood.

The installation appeared on the famous Boulevard on Wednesday morning, closely guarded by two burly security guards.

In a Statement on his website the artist said:

“We have built Kanye West into some kind of god-like idol, I believe he’s a genius when it comes to writing and producing but he’s human. When we build people into idols we have expectations, and if they fail to meet those expectations we crucify them. We saw this last year when Kanye was admitted to a medical facility to get treatment for stress, anxiety, and paranoia. We need to take a step back and remember our idols are only human and as such we need to give them space to err.”

Plastic Jesus had the custom figure moulded from resin specially for this year’s event by a Los Angeles based mannequin company. For this year’s Oscar installation, Plastic Jesus collaborated with another “Ginger” — the sculptor who created the naked Donald Trump figures that appeared on the streets at the end of 2016. Ginger spent four weeks carefully crafting the head and then moulding the final piece to produce an amazing likeness of the rapper.

The life size figure took about 6 weeks to produce in total but will only be on Hollywood Blvd for one day. If fans wish to see the statue in person they can see it at Plastic Jesus’ forthcoming show — Anesthesia – The Art of Oblivion — on Feb 25th at Gibson headquarters located at the former Tower Records store at 8801 Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles.

Plastic Jesus will be appearing this evening (Wednesday, February 22) on SuicideGirls Radio. Tune in from 8 til 9 PM at our state-of-the-art, all digital home on zinna.tv or via Facebook LIVE. For more info via: sgradio.info/1/sg-radio-feat-plastic-jesus/

About Plastic Jesus

Plastic Jesus is a Los Angeles based street artist that specialises in bold stencil and installation work, inspired by world news events, society, the urban environment, culture, and politics.

His critically acclaimed work combines humor, irony, criticism and unique opinion to create art that engages on many levels.

Often questioning the norms in society, Plastic Jesus confronts our compliance of culture and current affairs. The artist uses scale and contradiction as a means to highlight issues and opinions that often go unquestioned.

The aesthetic appeal of his work combined with the engagement produces an addictive mix that challenges our acceptance.

Plastic Jesus is not about revolution, he is not an anarchist but would like to see some changes around the place. His work is more about shining a small light into some of those dark corners of society.

Prior to his commitment to produce provocative street art Plastic Jesus has worked for over two decades as a photographer.

Following a VIP reception on Friday night, Anesthesia – The Art of Oblivion — featuring pieces by Plastic Jesus, Billy Morrison, and more — will open to the public at the old Tower Records store on the Sunset Strip on Saturday, February 25. The show runs from noon until 9pm. Entry is free.
