Thursday Tidbits....

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, February 25, 2010

OK, post 1,002...

Stream of consciousness - back to my love of Hunter S. Thompson and the like


Had dinner with out largest print supplier and our entire team and my client base this evening.

I tweeted earlier in the night biggie steaks and expensive wine.

Yes, I said tweeted...shoot me, but I have succumbed to the Twitter-devil...and it was to promote my radio show, but I have found I do tweet...as a matter of fact, before I began writing this - at 11:00pm - I tweeted the following "home...now with a grand buzz and wishing my baby was not in Baton Rouge".

Ended up having a delicious Red Snapper and some expensive wine. Glad others were reaching for the check!


So, the opening to American Idol tonight with Ryan not doing the whole intro and saying "Stop talking Simon"

Sorry, I totally believe the show has "jumped the shark"


From Wikipedia: Joseph Addison (1 May 1672 – 17 June 1719) was an English essayist, poet and politician. He was a man of letters, eldest son of Lancelot Addison. His name is usually remembered alongside that of his long-standing friend, Richard Steele, with whom he founded The Spectator magazine.

Why do I introduce you to this man..well, because he is the author of this incredible quote which I heard this evening:


"Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are
something to do,
something to love, and
something to hope for."


I am not sure I can fulfill all of these I certainly have something (and someone to love), I do have something to hope for...the something to do is up in the air in so many ways...I am not being satisfied in my career right now and I can honestly say that I have never felt this way before...it is curious to me...

I do have something I would love to get the opportunity to do, but sometimes it is not about wanting to do something but having that opening to do so...


The other day I did this Facebook blast about my Blogtalk Radio program and after I did it I regretted it...I do not want to beg for listeners.

I do want to get an audience for the artists I am featuring, but at the same time, I am feeding what I have always called the "ego monster" (imagine me holding my hand in the center of my chest and making an 'eating' motion with my fingers...)...I have always loved radio and began my little career back in high school when friends and I would do radio shows on a CB Radio.

Come on...you all have an "ego-monster" in you... you feel good when someone tells you that they like what you wrote, or how you did your job or how you performed in a play or whatever...that is what I call the "ego-monster" that part of us that giggles inside when you feel good because you received a compliment


The girls did a much better job on American Idol...these guys are weak.


I am holding back on ranting on something that has occurred recently in the bloggosphere...because in the end by talking about it will only give credence to the whole situation - and it does not deserve it.

With that, I say goodnight...

12 Of Your Sparks

  1. Micky-T Says:
  2. I see a little shop.....it's near the beaches and somethings cooking in that shop, I smell it.

    I think your being baited. He is a nice guy, I know, but he likes screwing with people on the tubes. I don't think he does that in the real world, just here, because it's a new ego toy for him that we all play with. If you really did hurt his wittle feelings then he asked for it himself.

     
  3. ...the whole world's going gonzo...

     
  4. Not sure I agree with Micky about his thinking that this person does not pull this crap in his real life, but I agree with the rest of his statement, because it's a new ego toy for him that we all play with. If you really did hurt his wittle feelings then he asked for it himself.

    I'm glad I stopped playing the game, and you'll find that you don't miss it, either.

     
  5. Oh, BTW, I'm sorry I have not been listening to the show lately. It's the Olympics to blame, you know? *sheepish grin* It's over on Sunday, so I should be back.

     
  6. Travis Says:
  7. Don't know what the bloggosphere issue is, but I find myself sometimes just quietly fading away from a blog if I no longer find a common ground of interest in the content.

    And I think there's future happiness to be found in making some kind of business around your love of cooking.

    Happy Thursday!

     
  8. Bond Says:
  9. MICKEY: You have incredible vision to see my hope for! Well, the ball is in his court...his decision

    PHFRANKIE: That is am

    SONGBIRD: Yeah...I have a grand life...not going to sweat small stuff
    I understand Ice Dancing over me ---harumpfft! LOL

    TRAVIS: You don't know because you faded from the blog in question...and I can only hope the future is exactly that.

     
  10. Dianne Says:
  11. do you watch 'Men of a Certain Age'? they used that quote on the season finale
    it's a great show

     
  12. TopChamp Says:
  13. hey - I have been absent and have no clue what's going on - intriguing. I wondered if you have ever been to New Orleans? (holiday plans afoot again)

     
  14. Bond Says:
  15. DIANNE: Yes, that is where I heard it and fell in love with it. I also enjoy the show.

    TOPCHAMP: Never been to New Orleans, but hoping to get there sometime this year.

     
  16. Kimmie Says:
  17. I also am in the dark on the blogosphere issue. Sorry.

    I will say that I agree with you on your American Idol comment. I think the girls have the edge on the talent this year. I will say I was a bit disappointed in the entire show last night. It just didn't seem to flow like it did in years past. Hopefully that will change.
    *Hugs hun*

     
  18. Dana Says:
  19. American Idol? UGH!

    And I hate it when there is something I really want to talk about but need to hold back so that I don't make an even bigger deal out of it. But then again, I seldom follow that rule!

     
  20. Mimi Lenox Says:
  21. I don't know the issue either but I know that sometimes you just have to step back and let things be. We do it in the "real world" all the time.
    Isn't it funny, though, and terrifying (!) that when an issue happens in the blogosphere, you suddenly find your issues on a billboard for all the world to see.
    Arrrghhh!!

    And I so agree with the cooking vision for you. It's in your soul.
    As is the music. Cooking...music....hmmm....maybe you're disinterest in the job is the universe trying to tell you something.

    You know I've been going through the same thing.
