Sam (and anyone else who cares to weigh in)-

This has NOTHING to do with this post, but I was out last night with some friends and your blog came up in conversation.

Two of us read you regularly, the third has never heard of you. I was immediately told by friend 2 that I need to "introduce" friend 3 to your blog.

Well this begs the question: What post do you think makes the best "introduction" to your blog? Is there certain post you love that you'd say, "Read this first! It'll give you a feel for what to expect from this blog." or should I just give him the link and say, "Here's the blog, read it for yourself."?

amy, that's a good question.

I'll write a Midnight Sun introduction manana. No time today.

Be sure to tune back in tomorrow! We'll have a blast together!

late '70s/early '80s > late '80s/early '90s

When can we expect a review of that place?

Hee hee ... you just wait until you see my weave ...


You should install a "refer to friend" button at the top of the blog.

When clicked, you can enter your friend(s) email address and the site will use sendmail to forward an invitation to check out the blog (from the friend).

Let me know if you want something like this. I have the scripts I can forward you.

Don't forget your laser portraits:

That commercial is great but it doesn't feature the greatest thing about Mr. Ray - his voice. Try this one to hear his God-like Baltimore accent.

Also KIM'S Ka-ra-te

BOB TURK, in one of the best local commercials ever made.

they still made music after 1980?

Nobody bodders me eidder!

Sam -

So I know you're busy, and I hate to be a nudge but did I miss the promised blast? I tuned in, but never saw it. Still looking for the Beginners Guide to Midnight Sun...

Amy, you didn't miss anything. It's scheduled to post today. Sorry I'm a little late in getting to it.

I knew you wouldn't forget about me. Thanks!!!!

I can't help but notice that every video in this post has now been removed from youtube due to ToS violations. What the hell.
