Hot Fun in the Summertime doesn’t mean U drown in your nearby Lake. How CBS saves Life, One Segment at a Time. A MikePuccinelli Exclusive: July 22, 2014.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 – The Daily Splurge® #32 addresses a SPLURGE that could save your Life.  Dramatic as that seems ten (10) People drown each Day during the Summer.  Water Deaths increase with the Heat Index are what the Experts tell us. “Half of these Deaths could be prevented,” stated Mike Puccinelli, General Assignment Reporter of CBS Chicago Channel 2 (who will be celebrating his 10TH Year Anniversary this upcoming December) in this Morning’s Safety Report. 

In other Words, Folks, don’t blow your Summer by Drowning. SPLURGE (i.e.: get out there and purchase) a Life Jacket that can possibly save your Life as well as lessen the GAPGrief, Anguish & Pain you create when you leave your Loved Ones behind (to fend for themselves).  There’s honestly enough Time during the Day to do this Chore.  Take a Break; google a Life Jacket Store (Recreational Sports Shop) in your Hood and drive/bike or walk over.  Or order one online that will be delivered within a few days.  This may be the Best Investment you’ve ever made. Plus, if you are an Adult, you are setting a fine Example for your CANChildren/Associates/Neighbors. They CAN & should think Safety first.  

We all hear the Horror Stories of Disbelief.  He/She died in just a matter of seconds because he/she wasn’t wearing a Flotation Jacket.  We can all feel their Hurt. One precious Person is dead; their Relatives are totally devastated.  Although First Responders are trained in SYL: Saving Your Life, Chances are you may not resurface and their Rescue Efforts may have been in-vein.  A Personal Floating Device is the SPLURGE OF THE DAY for July 22, 2014 as We enter the Peak of Boating Season here in the Northern Hemisphere. 

We may never know how many Lives have been saved by CBS airing this News Article, but rest assured since it has a Viral Presence and has struck a Nerve, that number will only increase the Odds that something devastating does not occur.

An SoS: Splurge on Safety may cut down a TV Station’s Broadcasts, but they’ve kept a Viewer and Prized Audience Member. This SPLURGE ON SAFETY is comprised of 3 Words worth not dying for.  Whether it’s in a Pool or River Rafting, SwimSmart®.  Boats – Broads – Beer – Bands are especially appealing, especially after a long, harsh Chiberian Winter, but face it:  Do you want on your Resumé & CV that you drowned?  I think not

Now marking its 20TH Year ABC:

Enter: Jay B. Ross, Entertainment Attorney & The Chicago Connection to The Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Get On Up premiers on August 1.



DATELINE:   Friday, July 10, 2014


Chicago, IL USA:  One of the greatest Performers and Entertainers, a Legend by all Definitions of the Word was James Brown, the Godfather of Soul; one of the Founding Fathers of Funk Music; #1 in The Top 500 Artists of Billboard R&B Charts (from 1942 to 2010), Hot R&B Songs; and Ranking as Seventh on Rolling Stone's List of its 100 Greatest Artists Of All Time. 1


With his Music touching The Masses, step back and think of what would it have been like to know how James really felt; what he really thought; what it was like to “be” James Brown. Even a Conversation with Mr. Brown must have been a mesmerizing Moment.


As the Movie – (t)his Movie – named:  Get On Up opens on August 1, 2014, ‘The Chicago Connection’ to Mr. Brown rests with our very own, Jay B. Ross, Entertainment Attorney to the incomparable James Brown.  Learn more of the Inside Story  about how Jay B. helped shape James’ Career (for 15 years); that later, of course, would lend itself to how eliminating Racism grew from the deeply enrooted Civil Rights Enactments of 50 years ago (this year); to how young Artists/Musicians/Performers must learn ‘The Laws’ in order to protect themselves and their Careers.  Yes, this could easily become a Class at any leading University revolving around the relevant Issues of Marketing/Music/Intellectual Property. 


As intriguing as the Sounds of James Brown are, Attorney Ross has worked with over 300 Performing Artists, Musical (both individual Arts and Groups) and Comedians for the Span of his Legal Career, now 46 years going strong.  His ever-popular Blog called:


has been turned into a Rap and will be released at the beginning of 2015. 


From ‘Sue The Bastards’ (Book-in-Progress) this Chapter appears:



  1. Introduction Written in October of 2006

    Mr. Ross has been my lawyer for many years. I trust him totally. He has looked out for
    my interests, even above his own, and that’s what a lawyer is all about. I’ve heard many of his stories that he intends to use in his books on his experiences and he has permission to use any about me. I have found his stories interesting and have laughed out loud at many of the humorous ones. I totally remember the ones he is writing about me, our long limo ride together in New York State, and our mutual advice to M.C. Hammer. I am sure that anyone who reads his work will enjoy it.

    - James Brown

    (Sadly, Mr. Brown died December 25, 2006 after expressing these comments.)

Posted 18th June 2012 by Jay B. Ross




ATTN: CHICAGOANS & MIDWESTERNERS:  The Chicago Connection’ to ‘The Godfather of Soul’ is right here in our very own backyard.  


As his Website tells us:


Jay B. Ross and Associates, P.C. has represented and/or advised some of the most prominent people in the entertainment industry. A pioneer in the field of entertainment law, Ross has represented scores of music legends and/or their heirs and advisers, including James Brown, Ray Charles' family, Muddy Waters, Woody Guthrie estate, Jerry “The Iceman” Butler, Koko Taylor, Gene Chandler, Shirley Jones, Anna Maria Alberghetti, Bonnie Pointer, Debbie Sledge, Albertina Walker and Willie Dixon.

A complete Roster of Jay B.’s Clients are online at:

Book an Interview for your Publication and/or Station to learn more about the Life & Times of James Brown – Stories that are not on the Silver Screen but in the Heart & Mind of Jay B. Ross as someone who knew this Legend intimately.  And, yes, he does miss James as they formed a Friendship based on Trust, which is quite extraordinarily rare in the Music Industry. 


Please contact the Law Office of Jay B. Ross directly at:  

P:  312-633-9000
F:  312-633-9090 

before August 1 when the Movie, GET ON UP premiers spotlighting Chadwick Boseman, Nelsan Ellis, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and produced by Mick Jagger in order to learn Facts and hear Stories that only he can reveal about this self-made SuperStar. 


When I asked Jay B. about his Careers that covered such Professions as the Legal Field; being an Author, Actor and Philanthropist, he was quick and proud to add a continuous Flow of Jobs that most would leave off their Resumés as:  Manager, Booking Agent, Poster Store Owner, Encyclopedia Salesman, Bus Boy, Waiter, Oven-Cleaner, Dorm Counselor and Real Estate Salesman. 

This Characteristic of being able to cross-over and reinvent himself is what gives Jay B. Ross his colorful Personality  and Fortitude…one that has opened Doors to the Arts & Cultural Scenes in Chicago where he is headquartered, a dynamic Arena where too many leave, but where Jay B. chose to stay and cultivate the Performers he worked and continues to work (with).

TO KEEP YOUR EDITORIAL CALENDARS ACTIVE:  The  following  five (5) Projects are in the Works for Jay B. that you may wish to spotlight throughout the upcoming year.  Those are:


1) ‘Sue the Bastards

Jay B. Ross’ Blog/Book – a Work-in-Progress;


2) ‘Sue The Bastards’ Song will be released in early January, 2015 to accompany The Book & its Music Video now in Production in Atlanta (derived initially from a Rap Jay wrote in the Middle 1980 for his Employees’ Holiday Party);


3) The Jay B. Ross Foundation that will promote frequent Networking Events in and throughout the Greater Chicago Community encompassing the Midwest and those Musicians/Artists/Talents wishing to break into ‘The Big Time’ without leaving for the East or West Coasts.


4) Jay B. Ross was officially recognized and included as a Legendary Blues Attorney in the Blues Hall of Fame by the American Heritage International Organization on April 22, 2014 via the Blues Hall of Fame - %: Daniel S. Marolt, Chairman of The Board.   www.BluesHallofFame.org


5) A Street will be named honoring Jay B.  (by the City of Chicago) saluting his Accomplishments and Milestones in The Arts, Music & Entertainment Worlds.  

6Negotiate is the BuzzWord of 2014.  By Fall of 2014, Jay B. Ross will be releasing a fool-proof 8 DVD Set (10-12 hours in duration) of originally-offered Videotapes (at the Graduate Level) and taught at Columbia College Chicago.  The Topic:  Negotiations (the Ploys – the Gambits).  Jay B. taught this 8 Credited Course Selection to Students (created 13 years ago) on Music Negotiation in April of 2008 to help them negotiate Deals when they are in Los Angeles or New York City.  Unfortunately, many cannot afford to hire an Entertainment Attorney to protect their Material & Intellectual Properties. These Negotiation Techniques were designed to discover the Hidden Meanings behind the Words spoken.  This Set is not only for the Creative Personality but for anyone who wants to know more about the Art of the Negotiation; the ‘GoodGuy  - BadGuy” Approach; how to read a ‘flinch’ and other significant Techniques that save the Artist/Person from getting ripped off.  A $1,000 Course, the 8 DVDs will retail at $195 for the Set. 
TAPPING INTO A LOCAL LEGEND:  Available for Programs/Programming as a regularly scheduled Live Segment on your Radio/TV Station, this would be(come) a Series when Jay B. interviews ‘The Who’s Who of Entertainment’ here in ‘Sweet Home Chicago’ telling their Stories, sharing his and what transpires from those  two great Conversational Dialogues.


PAPA’s GOT A BRAND NEW BAG:  James Brown and Jay B. Ross: A Part of the American Music Heritage.    Indeed, it’s easy to say they are 2 of the most "The Hardest Working Men in Show Business."

Edutopia: The Goal of Educating Our Young On(c)e and For All...


Tuesday, July 1, 2014.  What’s more important than Fame, Fortune and Material Possessions?  Education.  Education is the Key to all the Strides a Person makes in their Lifetimes. If a good Education is secured from Birth on (as each Day is a well-rounded Experience in which to Learn), then every Possession (Material & Spiritual) can be achieved, if that happens to be your Desire.  This Activity may be extremely difficult to achieve for some People who are born into extenuating Circumstances. However, Credit must be given to those who make it a point to present ‘The Best Opportunities to all People’ in their Pursuit of Knowledge.  One such Group that stands apart and at the Forefront of this ‘Mission’ is:





with 378,543 likes as of July 1, 2014 – 1:20 PM CST


with 400,000 Followers

begun by George Lucas.  The George Lucas Educational Foundation (based in San Rafael, California) staffs Talented People who work in a collaborative Environment with Colleagues that are impassioned about The Learning Process.  According to their Website (paraphrased):  Their Dedication lies in improving the K-12 Learning Process through innovative, replicable, and evidence-based Strategies, preparing Students to thrive in their Studies, Careers and Adult Lives.

A Study-Buddy Strat(egy) is one in which you share your Like Interests with a Friend.  S/he may be just that Person who makes your Learning Experience memorable by sharing it in a mutually satisfying way. Connecting with others in your Community is both aspiring and inspiring.  Especially so during the Summer when School is out and it’s important to keep busy. It’s far easier to accomplish when you share that  Moment with you. The Key is Motivation.  The Time to start is now:  The First Day of July: 2010.

The Goods and Contents of what Education provides are catching. By Teaching a Topic  to others and participating in ‘The Process,’ the Progress each Student makes is comparable to a Splurge.  However, to fully Splurge on Education enriches not only the Person but those s/he shares it with. More often than not:  It is assuredly the One Thing that will follow you through Life, a well-lived one by opening up Doors and allowing you to ‘achieve’ those Dreams and fulfill those Plans. 

Therefore, for those of you participating in #NationalSplurgeDay’s 20TH Year ABC: Anniversary Birthday Celebration this Year, here at #SplurgeCentral, We wholeheartedly encourage you to GO Education.  Take time out to investigate more about Edutopia by practicing and helping K-12 Students in your Neighborhood; Community Center; School, Church, Synagogue, Mosque, etc.  so that they feel that ‘splurging’ on Education is the most worthwhile Endeavor they could ever, ever do.

JUST STOP THE PAIN! A Plan to alleviate Pain through a revised Alcoholic based Liquid. A Humanitarian Plea to ‘ease The Pain.’

DATELINE:  Sunday, June 29, 2014

A dear Friend of mine is extremely sick.

Allergic to sulfa-based drugs (Antibiotics containing chemicals called sulfonamides), he uses alcohol to self-medicate (primarily vodka) that eliminates 90% of his pain (the pain).  When not ‘drinking’ (which causes him to become inebriated that causes yet another set of problems to set in), he applies a hot-cold cream and takes an over-the-counter pain reliever (non-sulfa-based) that he reports kills ‘the pain’ by only 50%.  The whammy is that he is an alcoholic and he pays for this temporary relief, dearly by an array of symptoms including:


Not sleeping

Not eating

Losing weight

Falling and severely bruising himself


Delusions and

Chronic lingering Depression (as alcohol becomes a depressant once the ‘high’ is over)


Then, when he stops drinking the alcohol, ‘the pain’ returns.  This cycle to relieve (t)his torment of on-going pain (due to a peripheral neuropathy in his left arm and hand (the ball-and-claw deformity) and now with OsteoArthritis in his lower back) began in 2002. It’s now June of 2014.  HE NEEDS IMMEDIATE RELIEF.  Nothing on the open marketplace gives him long-lasting relief.  Yet, the break-throughs medical science has made  and continues to make may hold an answer for him and others so afflicted. 


MY PROPOSAL to all chemistry labs, medical research teams and alcohol producing companies is to develop a:


Non-addicting beverage that contains the ‘Healing Power of Pain Removal’ that Vodka (and other leading liquors contain) but without the addictive properties and Side Effects that occur after consumption.  We want to merely TURN OFF THE PAIN. 


As a layman and cook, who mixes various condiments and spices to produce a healthier product, I instinctually feel this “Process of Discovery” deals only with the juxtaposition of Atoms and Molecules – simple Additions and Subtractions that would not addict the imbiber/user, but would merely turn-off the area(s) in the brain that cause(s) ‘the pain.’  Alcohol somehow reaches this/these area(s) on its own, yet alcohol’s side effects are debilitating.  By the same token, this may lead to a lessening of the Anxiety and Deep Depression that accompanies an alcohol-induced blow-out / experience / bout.


LOOK AT IT THIS WAY:  Marijuana is now ‘medical – medicinal’ and helps those who need a fix. Pot has been known to help those with glaucoma.  Why shouldn’t alcohol be reworked to aid those in excruciating and severe pain?  This is not a Drive to stop the high-stakes Pill Industry and its advocates that make billions/trillions of dollars every year or decade. This is a new chance to review the hidden properties of alcohol to aid those individuals who desperately need a new and improved way of dealing with their pain so that their suffering is lessened/diminished and their Life resumes as normally as possible.  I firmly believe this Concept can become a Reality – a Building Block.  That’s why your help is being recruited today to make it happen for an ever-growing larger population that needs help ASAP. 


This Plan may open and break ground for a long-lasting cure and remedy for mindful Pain Relief.  It holds potential that just needs to be set into motion by experts in these areas.   That way, a new product of Alcohol will aid Modern Medicine in making in-roads into other areas of human suffering.



Currently (as of Sunday, June 29, 2014), nothing that he is doing is working positively towards his benefit or upon improving his quality of life and living.  Every day, this becomes a continual fight that is taking its toll on him; while mentally wearing him out so that lack of sleep and high anxiety mark his days – besides his excruciating Pain.  He cannot eat so that he does not get the nutrients he needs to keep his body strong.   And, of course, this affects his  loved ones around him who can’t bear to see him  in such pain.



As of  Wednesday, December 31, 2014, the last BabyBoomer will turn 50.  The shift towards an older demographic is prevalent and better improvements on keeping them in optimal health is a (new) industry of its own with high tech advancements leading the way; making headline news.  I’m sure this Concept/Proposal of: 

JUST STOP THE PAIN!  A Plan to alleviate Pain through a non-Alcoholic based Liquid


 is not as far-fetched or impossible as it may initially seem. 


SEEN AS A WIN-WIN SITUATION:   The Target Group is this huge market affecting Alcoholics who do not want to become Drug Addicts.  If we can “find a way” to:

alleviate Pain through a revised Alcoholic based Liquid,


this Break-through would cut-back on the huge financial burden, debt and strain alcoholism (and its dire consequences) puts on our modern global society and its caretakers.


ASKING A FAVOR OF YOU:  Sharing this missive with others in your Circle; posting it on Social Media Networks  and/or discussing the Topic are other avenues I would appreciate you partaking in. 

That posting for a Tweet (in exactly 140 Characters) would read as:

JUST STOP THE PAIN! A Plan 2 alleviate Pain thru a revised Alcoholic based Liquid.  Humanitarian Plea 2 ease The Pain


After all, every Day is a Blessing and a Gift to be lived to the Fullest.  Any hindrance that happens to us, detracts from that Wonder.  

Won’t you help?

IN CLOSING:  On behalf of my friend, we both thank you for listening to my Plan here.    I may be reached at:

847-630-9201 – My Cell 






to discuss any questions or queries you may have or to clear up anything I was not specific about.
