Thursday Thoughts...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, March 05, 2009

OK, so I received some very well thought out arguments against my Kurt Warner rant yesterday and even received a love letter to Mr. Warner from a Sweet young fan from the Great State of California...and today, Mr. Warner signed for $23-Million with his old team, the Arizona Cardinals and Mr. Ramirez signed with the Dodgers for $45-Million, so the state of California was 50/50 for the day...

Last night on the Radio Happy Hour one of our guests was Mr. Robert Galinsky, founder of the New York Reality TV School. During our discussion I mentioned that I have always felt I could be a most excellent contestant on the reality show Big Brother, Mr. Galinsky offered me a full scholarship to his school (via phone and internet communications) to teach me how to get through the selection process.

Now this presents some problems...being away from work for 100 days...having cash to pay my bills...but, HECK-A-DOODLE...I think I might as well give it a go and IF I get selected, worry about those things later!

First prize is $500,000.00 and I have a devious mind...can cook )they always like to keep the person who can cook around for a while...

I checked out the application and the requirements and found that, unless you are the winner or runner-up, you also get a weekly stipend for every week you are in the house.

I kind of only wish the fans voted for who stays and who goes, because I know I could count on you, my most excellent guests, to push me through...

Will keep you updated!

While over visiting MIMI of "Mimi Writes" yesterday, I laughed when I saw this picture of White House Chief Of Staff Rahm Emanuel (on the right):

The reason I laughed is because just a few weeks ago a co-worker walked over to my cube and asked me how I knew Mr. Emanuel. You see, he was looking at this picture, which hangs in my cubical:

The picture is of my brother Rich, his wife and their two daughters. I know that at Rich's newspaper The San Antonio Express, when Mr. Emanuel was named COS, Rich took some ribbing about when he would be leaving for his new position!

You be the judge...separated at birth or not?

Incredible singer...incredible song...written by Burt Bacharach & Hal David...featured in the movie "Dead Presidents"....Mr. Issac Hayes


19 Of Your Sparks

  1. Starrlight Says:
  2. Totally seperated at birth.

    I WANT YOU ON THAT SHOW. Tell them you have the power of the INTARWEB behind you. Matt Man alone could garner you votes with bribes of booze and boobie pictures. You know, the Irish way ;)

    I KID!

    Did you see that TO was cut loose again!!

    Finally got part one of my review up. Oy and I tired now!

  3. Travis Says:
  4. They say we all have our twins!

    Dangit...the player wouldn't play for me and I love the Bacharach & David team. I'll have to come back later.

    And you had to go there with that idiot. I have to go an entire summer rooting for 24 out of 25 guys now.

  5. Mags Says:
  6. I'm really angry that ANYONE signed stupidhead Ramirez. But then, that's probably the sentiment you'd expect a Boston fan to have, huh? :)

    And yeah-your brother does seem to have a twin!

  7. Mimi Lenox Says:
  8. Oh my gosh. They are identical. It's true! I'll bet your Emanuel gets all kinds of you-look-like-Vinny's-brother remarks.


  9. katherine. Says:
  10. I think you mean me? too funny...I mention you today

    Arizona said, "okay okay...quit kidding around and come home...we blink"

    I am guessing Emanuel is the evil twin...I have always been uncomfortable with the word, "Doppleganger" it just sounds like an evil twin to me...

    The Big Brother thing would be cool...I watched survivor because of Lex....but you on Big Brother would be pretty cool.

  11. Tug Says:
  12. Definitely separated at birth...have you talked to your mom about this? ;-)

    Big Brother would be AWESOME. Start practicing your slop-making skills now.

  13. Bond Says:
  14. STARR: See, if the fans voted, I am a shoo-in for the big prize...but Matt offering HIS boobies...well ewwwww LOL

    TRAVIS: I actually saw mine on a NYC bus one day...scary! LOL
    Not sure why it is not playing...dang

    MAGS: AH the wrath of a Sox fan...LOL

    MIMI: I am MUCH better looking! LOL

    KATHERINE: OF Course I meant YOU! LOL
    Yup AZ did blink...
    Another person to add to BB's Nielsen Ratings!

    TUG: Yup yup.... Not sure they allow you to add to the slop..but I would rock them with my chicken parm!

  15. Jay Says:
  16. You can count on me to vote for you if you are on Big Brother.

    Unless one of your opponents is a super hot babe. If that's the case I think we have to be realistic about who I would vote for dude. ;-)

  17. Bond Says:
  18. JAY: ya bastard you would have a chance with her (well you don't with me either, but I would stock your liquor cabinet if I won!)

  19. I WANT BOND ON BIG BROTHER! Got Blogstien T's for EVERYONE!

  20. Bond Says:
  21. DOC: I am also going to have HECK-A-DOODLE tshirt made! LOL

  22. Dianne Says:
  23. oh I could so see you on Big Brother - you'd bring some class and maturity to the show, that's for sure!!

  24. Fred Says:
  25. Nice to see Rich's family picture. We need to hear from Joan or Vince about this.

    And, I hope I don't get down to my 7th grade weight. I'll settle for the wedding weight, which was 177.

  26. DrillerAA Says:
  27. I just couldn't do Big Brother. Someone would die and I would go to jail.

  28. "Big Brother," huh? I've never watched the show - but if you make it, I will have to start.

    And they're right ... he looks exactly like Rahm Emanuel.

  29. SO have my vote!

    And yeah, somebody got switched!

  30. Starrlight Says:
  31. Dude I never said Matt's boobage. Schmoops, sure... not Matt's!!

  32. Bond Says:
  33. DIANNE: And some devious ways and some great gravy! LOL

    FRED: Dad sent an email to some family and friends letting them know about the pictures...

    DRILLERAA: Hey, I never said THAT wouldn't happen if I was on...ONLY kidding Producers...really! LOL

    SOUTHERN: Cool...building a new fanbase for them... and yup he does

    RLL: Thanks...So, you think I can call Rahm and ask for a tour of the White House?

    STARR: LOL...OK, I get it!

  34. Damn. If you were on Big Brother, I'd actually have to desecrate the sanctity of my sacred television space with the likes of...gulp...a "reality" show. *heavy West-of-Ireland sigh* The things we do for friends...
