Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, May 08, 2006

Happy Birthday Mom. We love you and hope you have a wonderful day...

Well...I sent out an email last week alerting friends and family of my new hobby--writing this blog...So, I presume there will be 30,000,000,000 people reading this today (gosh, I just love the little world I live in!)

I have also begun checking out some of the cool videoblogs (Vlog) that are popping up all over the internet...Thanks to TiVo, I get to see one of my favs right on my TV. Rocketboom, is the Vlog I watch and it is pretty cool. Hosted by Amanda Congdon (left - who was once a model, though she says she hated it), she along with producer Andrew Baron produce a 3 to 5 minute Vlog each weekday. The have recently upgraded the production values by filming in HDV video camera. This all came about after they auctioned off commercial time at the end of each show. The first advertiser, ATM manufacturer TRM paid $40,000 for rights to a week of commercial spots. Currently, (as of last week)Earthlink is running spots each day. This little project, conceived 2 years ago, is now worth between $4 and $5 million dollars according to Baron.

Did you know that according to (the video-blog listing service), there is more then 6,900 Vlogs on the web already? That is incredible to me. Technology is getting cheaper, and even mainstream media is getting involved - the internet is going to become one giant video-center... now, where did I put that digital video camera....
Do you have a favorite Vlog? Let us know through our comments area and we will report back to everyone on the Vlogs our fans are watching...

Remember to treat your kids right...William Crawford of Castalia, OH wonders why his two sons don't feel closer to him.
Seems, Billy-boy was running for re-election to retain his seat on the Erie County democratic Party Central Committee. He has a lock on the win, until his two sons decided not to vote...the result, a 43-43 tie. Now one of the son's lives across town, but the other still lives home! No confirmation that William changed the locks on the house that evening and never told his son!

OK, you get out of prison and your wife and kids come meet you. You all board the commuter train to go home an d celebrate and sleep in your own bed for the first time in a while. OK, so you order a beer on the train.. maybe two...BUT John McKenzie went a bit too far. Seems he had a few more then two beers, got drunk and swiped the beer of another passenger. An argument ensues and McKenzie gets arrested in Ogden, IL and goes to jail for public intoxication and disorderly conduct. Yes kids, dad will be home soon (I think).

Think I'll by a safe to protect my most important possessions...A man in Lawrence, KS did just that. Then some thieves broke into his home and stole the safe. The cops come to his door and ARREST HIM! Why? Well it seems that someone (who was not involved in the break-in according to police), turned over some of the contents of the safe stolen.
The contents...DVD's and videos of the owner having sex with underage girls. This one reminds me of the guy who goes to the police station to report that someone stole his pot plants...ummm folks....we have LAWS!

"Lost" fans...did your jaw hit the ground?? Did you fall off your chair?? Does this show ever fail to cause one set of goosebumps per episode?? Incredible ending this week...

Has Barry Bonds retired yet? No? Too bad. AVG. .262 HR 5 RBI 12 SB 0
Babe...even when he passes you, you are more about baseball then he ever will be. Hank, he will never catch you...never.

Keep that spark of insanity kids...It helps keep you an individual.

  2. Vlogs huh? Hmmmm, sound interesting. Have to check some of them out.

    Thanks for the chuckle, especially about the guy who got arrested on his way home from jail. To quote my favourite long earred hopper - what a maroon.
