Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Tuesday, August 21, 2007

Our "friends" at Comcast decided to renew our Internet around 8:45PM tonight...

Gosh, we love you Comcast


Our friend Tiggerprr tagged us with a brand new meme and we have taken the challenge. It is funny, though that I wonder if a few zeros were dropped of on the amount you are given because some of the questions would require wayyyyyyyyy more than the $50,000.00 offered.

OK, here it is.... and awayyyyyy we go....

A philanthropist awards you $50,000 with the stipulation that you may use half of it for yourself and the other half you must use for the benefit of others. By “benefit of others” it can mean anything really, buying a gift for a family member or donating to a charity.

A. How do you spend the money on yourself?
This one is real simple. Half would go to Matt for college and the other half would go to pay off the debt that was accumulated during my time out of work.

B. How do you use the money for others? Please be detailed, so if you say “give X dollars to charity, let us know what charity and why you select that one.
The other half would go to Gay Men'sHealth Crisis. GMHC offers an array of programs and services to thousands of men, women, and children every year. Though some of our services are for registered clients only, there are many workshops and programs available to the general public regardless of HIV status, sexual orientation, or gender. We have had a number of friends and one family member who have been affected by this horrid disease.

C. If you were to spend part of your money to have a performer do a show for you, who would it be and why?
This is where it gets funny for me..part of my half the money...not enough to have many artists perform, but if it were possible, we would love to have a private concert for our special friends with this gray haired guy as the performer...yup....ME! No, kidding...Taylor Hicks...

D. If you were to use it on a new vehicle for yourself, what kind?
Hummmm...would like a Mustang convertible we guess...once again..not sure there would be enough for a Hyundai...LOL

E. If you spent part of it to go to a “fantasy” camp, what type would you choose?
We loved Tiggerprr's answer about a sun and pina colada fantasy that would be HAWT...but not sure that exists, so the NY Yankee Fantasy Camp would be way cool too...

F. If you were to use it to buy season tickets for a sports team, what team would it be?
Gee, let's think about this for like a milli-second or less...yup...the Ballpark In The Bronx baBY!

G. If you were to use it to go on a cruise (assuming you like cruises) where would you cruise to?
Would love to do the Mediterranean, and get to see Italy and Sicily and Greece.

H. If you were to use it to go to NYC to see a show (or shows) what would you see?
Oh man...We would go in march and see as many of the 15 nights the Allman brothers spend at the Beacon Theatre.

I. Totally off subject (but since Fall is coming) what is your favorite carnival food (I was watching “Big” while writing this and saw them at the carnival)?
Cotton Candy! Pure sugar and air....gimme gimme gimme...yummers....

We now have to tag some people (is there a number?)...hang on a second...we need to run back to Tiggerprrs and find out...hand loose a minute....dang girl, she picked 7 people...we had 6 in mind...


Hope all y'all enjoy it and have some fun...

What else would be more fitting then PINK FLOYD....

"Money" is the sixth track from Pink Floyd's 1973 album, "The Dark Side of the Moon". It is the only song on the album to hit the top 20 in the United States charts. On the original LP, it opened the second side of the album. It was written by Roger Waters.

Personally, we saw them twice. First at Stony Brook University in 1970 during the "Ummagumma / Atom Heart Mother" Tour (their real melodic psychedelic phase), and then in 1973 at Madison Square Garden for the "Dark Side Of The Moon" Tour. Both incredible concerts...


Dr. Blogstein and Jane will have a real interview with a virtual celebrity.

Jon "NEVERDIE" Jacobs is a real personality in the Entropia Universe, which is a virtual world. Stuff Magazine listed him in their "Top 30 Under 30" list.

He has become a real millionaire by purchasing an asteroid in the Entropia Universe in 2005 for $100,000 and building a nightclub, Club NEVERDIE on said ateroid. The club is now the #1 virtual destination hot spot and brings in an average income of $20,000 per month for him!

If you're confused, join the club but we'll get to the bottom of it!

Also, we'll get an update from embattled "Bestest" blogger Bobby Griffin who faced allegations of fraud on our April 4th edition of the Radio Happy Hour. He was booked last week but was bumped due to the Walid Shoebat segment running late.

All that, plus we'll discuss the Radio Happy Hour's appearance in the New York Post with Justin the Weatherman, we'll hear from Vinny Bond on his couch and we'll take your phone calls at 646-652-4804.

Join us live every Tuesday night at 9PM ET . And if you miss us then, we're ALWAYS ON at

  10. Sparky Duck Says:

  12. Excellent choices Bond. I too wished for another zero or two. Sparky called me an amateur for only taking a month at the beach :P

  13. SONGBIRD: Good job ...

    JULIE: We will wait dear...we will wait and of course you would be at my special party

    MATT-MAN: Throw you in there and it is no longer a trend it is reality

    ROGER: Glad you liked the tuneage

    SPARKY: LOL yup yup..ticket prices are crazy

    STARRLIGHT: Well gee, there is only so much $25G's can do Sparky!

  22. TopChamp Says:
  23. Hello - nice to imagine having a bit of cash... might be nicer to actually have the cash though!

    Sorry but still no broadband so videos, music and BLOGTALK RADIO are all out for me. I hope it's not for too much longer as this show looks good.

  24. Don't forget that Tape Radio Stations need money for their anniversary parties! It is a fitting and all important tax deduction. Your post card is on it's way. After your mail man sees it, do not expect further deliveries...

  25. Unknown Says:

  27. BeckEye Says:
  28. I've always wanted a Mustang convertible myself. But I HATE cotton candy.

  29. Mimi Lenox Says:
  30. The Castle could use a good cleaning and piano tuning!

    Thanks for the tag. I shall ponder this....

  31. tiggerprr Says:
  32. Hey Bond, I love your answers some are so similar to mine! :) Glad you guys are getting a good response to it. I didn't realize that there were such things as fantasy camps...but if I took a tent with me to the beach in St. Lucia and a really hot guy that I fantasize about, wouldn't that count as a fantasy camp? just sayin.

  33. TOPCHAMP: Sorry you are still having internet probs...

    BUD: Welcome back dude....LOL can't wait...

    DANA: Yeah, I know you did

    BECKEYE: Well then I will not eat mine in your new car!

    MIMI: I can't wait

    TIGGERPRR: Been to St. is nice there, OH you a tent and a hot should i start packing?

  34. Meribah Says:
  35. You're gonna invite us all to a Taylor Hicks concert??? Cool! **Sucks up to Bond to make sure he invites the puppy and bribes the border patrol to let her across** LOL :P

  36. tiggerprr Says:
  37. If I was taking a hot guy and a tent to St. Lucia....what would he really need to pack, other than soap, toothbrush and toothpaste?

    (I'm going to hit my enter key now...though I have a scary feeling that this is opening up a whole fun discussion that might make me blush.)
