Ruby Tuesday & Tidbits....

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Tuesday, November 18, 2008

If you LOVE Dancing, then head over to TRAVIS'
for a complete look at last night's program.
Coming down to the end with the finale just one week off!

Click on the logo above to head over to The Teach's blog to see all the entries this week. Folks, RUBY TUESDAY has exploded across the Bloggosphere... THANKS MARY!

Let's go into the WAYBACK MACHINE...1981..yup, I was 27 years old. George and I were visiting John as he was stationed in Virginia Beach at Naval Air Station Oceana. A grand weekend where we got to climb into John's F-14 and laugh and drink some.

This was taken on the Officer's Gof Course and at one point, as I was lining up for a putt, an F-14 came streaking over us at about 100 feet off the ground. Next thing I knew I was munching on the grass as I hit the deck hard.

John was laughing hysterically, and I felt like a dolt until I saw George also laying on the ground!

This is George and I...and the RUBY is in the way-wickedly cool socks I was sporting.We won't even talk about the shorts! bwahahahahahahahahahaaaaaa

Moved up the technological ladder yesterday. My cell has been acting up...actually slowing down...when I go to read messages it takes a while to get to that generally is one second behind my fingers punching the keys.

Then this weekend, I got a mailing from Verizon telling me about a big sale and, since I have been a Verizon wireless customer since 1935, I also got $100.00 the price of a phone.

So at lunch, I went over to the Verizon store and secured a Blackberry Curve. It gives me everything I need plus a better camera in the phone and it is Bluetooth enabled. So for a total cost of $6.00 after the mail-in rebate, I am now a cell-tech-geek.

Well, since I have the ability, I now want my emails to come to my phone, so that added a few sheckles to my cell phone bill, but two months ago, I was able to cut the bill by almost $50.00/month, so I am still ahead of the game.


Only SIX DAYS until 24 - Redemption airs! With the writer's strike and Keifer getting bagged for being bagged, we did not get any 24 last season...This is a 2-hour 'movie' to bring us up to date so that when the show hits the ground in January we will be up to pace.

Beginning to plan the menu for a 6 course dinner on New Year's Eve. Have two spots left at the table...any takers? Serious parties only apply...

This ain't no joke!

Have not really had any music flowing on here lately with the demise of lifelogger - seriously...any of you out there that use lifelogger? Have you also not been able to get to the website? PLEASE let me know.

And with this new system I found (upload to one site, send to a second site for embedding code - I am limited by the amount I can I have to be careful here...

YEAH SURE! Like I won't just buy a server and start hosting the dang audio myself.

I have been taken over by this EP...a favorite of The Couch, this is called "I'm Always Here For You", by the incredible Josh Charles.


Radio Happy Hour
Coming up this week on DR. BLOGSTEIN’S RADIO HAPPY HOUR:
(Live on Tuesday November 18 at 9PM ET and
forever archived at BlogTalkRadio.)

Radio Jesus and Dangerous Lee welcome actor Tim Reid and comedian Tom Dreesen.

Alone, Reid, best remembered as Venus Flytrap, the overnight disc jockey on WKRP in Cincinnati, became one of the busiest actors in television as well as a director and producer with his own production studio in Virginia while Dreesen became a stand-up comedian who has appeared scores of times on The Tonight Show and Late Show with David Letterman and who was Frank Sinatra’s opening act for the last 14 years of the singer’s career.

But it was together where the duo made history as the first (and the last) black and white comedy team in the history of show business. They document their less than successful five year run as a duo in Tim and Tom: An American Comedy in Black and White and will share their stories with the #1 black and white comedy team on internet radio.

Also, what do you call a guy whose roommate Clyde kicks him out of their room when he brings a chick home? How about a guy whose super smart roommate Justin beats him down for not standing up for himself? Or a guy whose mother died experimenting with mushrooms in culinary school? And what do you call a guy who lives vicariously through his own blog?


You call him Poor Paul: a new media episodic comedy series following the adventures of Paul, a twenty something, funny and unlucky dreamer who creates outrageous fantasies in order to escape life.

Stars Kevin Schmidt and Zack Bennett will be live on the show.

All that, plus Dr. Vino will tell us what to drink and when, Vinny Bond sits on his Big Leather Couch to chat live with the listeners, Shawn Amos returns with another Pop Quiz, Justin the Weatherman, the music of Jason Yudoff and we’ll take your calls at 646-652-4804.

Join us live every Tuesday night at 9PM ET. The Radio Happy Hour Lounge-a live, interactive chat room during show time! It’s the show within the show!

  7. Anndi Says:

  10. Ralph Says:
  11. Have the country clubs grown so lax in their attire requirements that these two, cutoffs, white sox and all are allowing to swing away?

    Cutoffs and white sox look way better than the gaudy plaid knickers that are correct at the club. Try wearing plaid knickers at your local driving range...knickers rhymes with snickers, which is what Mr. Plaid will hear...

  12. Dude my dad had those shorts :P

    As for Lifelogger I got one thing to say. It's dead, Jim.

  13. RALPH: LOL...yeah...lax in 1981...heheheheh Plaid...hehehe
