Turmoil Tuesday

DON'T MISS OUT ON THE BIG CELEBRATION!!!
How To Get Your Peace Globe November 2007



Well, we planned absolutely nothing for today because we had planned on uploading the 2 videos that compromise "SICILIAN GRAVY & LASAGNA ala BOND" But youtube is NOT cooperating...telling us we are uploading a bad file format, yet we are uploading a .mov file...

Well it is way too late to figure it out now, so we will have to work on it some tomorrow. As we are sitting here, we think we may have to break it into 3 parts...it runs 23 minutes in total..half for the gravy, 1/2 for the lasagna...

OK MAYBE WE OVERDID IT - BUT HELL...IT IS US - YOU SHOULD NOT BE SURPRISED!



Thanks for all the encouraging words on the partial story we posted yesterday...we really think a week at the beach will open up the brain cramps...now to make plans...probably will not be until after the holidays, but maybe even the thought that something is planned will help...

We will be trying to finish the one from yesterday though...it has the most potential...

Coming up this week on DR.BLOGSTEIN'S RADIO HAPPY HOUR: (Live on Tuesday October 30th at 9PM ET and forever archived at BlogTalkRadio.)
[CL_bluesuit_med.gif]

Emmy Award winning TV host, radio host and designer Christopher Lowell will join Dr. B and Dangerous Lee to design the hell out of the Radio Happy Hour--and if you're not sure what that means, you're in good company.

Lowell will give us tips on decorating the Radio Happy Hour studio, help Dr. B make his bachelor pad more inviting for the ladies and hopefully share some beard trimming techniques.

Then, by popular demand, extra Phil and extra Justin the Weatherman. The emails cried out for it so now you're going to get it! Be careful what you wish for.

All that plus, SUPREME COMMANDER OF THE CYBERWAVES Vinny Bond drags his Big Leather Couch into the Radio Happy Hour Lounge and chats live with the listeners, your calls at 646-652-4804 and I guarantee a surprise that will cause you never to look at a Radio Happy Hour regular the same way again.

Join us live every Tuesday night at 9PM ET. The Radio Happy Hour Lounge--a live chat room during show time--is a whole new reason to make sure you listen live! It’s the show within the show!

But if you can't and miss us live, we're ALWAYS ON at www.DrBlogstein.com



We always enjoyed the LOGGINS & MESSINA ONSTAGE Live album released in 1974. Some great live performances recorded at three of the great halls; Carnegie Theatre in NYC, the Orpheum Theatre in Boston and the Winterland in San Francisco.

On the album the band moves from "JUST BEFORE THE NEWS" into this song, "ANGRY EYES" a Loggins & Messina collaboration.

20 Of Your Sparks

  1. Mimi Lenox Says:
  2. Yes, the news is bad today. The NC fire so tragic. I've been to that beach many times as a child. It is a very small shore community, quiet and peaceful. Sending prayers....

     
  3. Turnbaby Says:
  4. YouTube is not happy with longer videos but it will upload--eventually. Blogger doesn't like them either!

    I didn't get to read your story yet but I will ;-)

    And one of the scariest headline of yesterday--Tony Romo and Britney Spears on a date --ugh.

    Hoping to be able to hear and get in the chat tonight--'pimped' ya. YOu should check out my show in archives--Ian gave out some great writing advice.

    Smooch

    JULIE: Kind of scary isn't it?

  13. katherine. Says:
  14. As a parent of college students who go on similar types of roadtrips, the NC fire brings tears to my eyes.

    There are GOOD headlines too...just not always at the top of the list...(and Arnold has been doing a great job all along...I am very pleasantly surprised)

     
  15. I know you worry when I don't comment, so here I am. I haven't read because I haven't had the right frame of mind to read and comprehend. Forgive me friend, but wanted you to know I was here...

     
  16. Bond Says:
  17. MATT-MAN: 18%...WTF is that all about...disgusting

    STARR: Well, she called me on Friday and I turned her down... I neve liked sloppy 3,766,876,797ths
    HEHEHEH

    KATHERINE: As a father of a college student, I also worry...so very sad...I will do a good headline piece soon...

    SONGBIRD: I am sorry you are not in the right frame of mind darlin'...we are always here for you and you have a perma-seat on The Couch whenever...

     
  18. Starrlight Says:

  32. Starr: I would still hit that--no doubt about it.

     
  33. Dana Says:
  34. I lurve Kenny Loggins...and I'm personally writing to Youtube to express my dissatisfaction! I'm sure they'll respond like Myspace did...with resounding silence.

     
  35. Travis Says:
  36. As long as youtube lets me post the Dancing encore clips, I guess I'm happy.

    I should be able to listen tonight and actually form coherent thoughts into sentences that make sense. They told me I made sense at work today, but perhaps they were just being kind.

    Later dude!

     
  37. Roger Says:
