Sadly, Mothra Still Goes Unrecognized....

Every now and then, I see a story that just fills me with joy. With so much in the world that divides us, it's good to see some news that everyone can agree on.

One word:

Godzilla.

Four more words:

Star.

Hollywood.

Walk.

Fame.

Viva....

Current Location: The Media Center of the Mandalay Bay Casino.

Situation: Conducting interview for the Wright Vs. Mosely fight tomorrow night.

Translation: I and two other listeners of the Ticket are sharing space with actual media people. My credentials are that I spent 17 hours on an RV.

Last night we spoke to Moseley's wife and fight legend Bert Sugar among others.

I also lost 5 dollars on a slot machine.

More info later.

Your pal,

Road Trip!

Well, even though it's a few years too late, I will make my first ever honest-to-goodness road trip tomorrow.

This is all courtesy of Richard "Big Dick" Hunter. We will depart in a 40-foot RV Wednesday night to the home of CSI: Original Flavor, Las Vegas.

We'll be doing some interviews for the upcoming Winky Wright vs. Shane Mosley rematch this Saturday, but more importanly, Mr. Hunter will wed his long time girlfriend. While I do suspect the location of the nuptials, I'll leave that for a future post.

I will try to blog from the road, and I will be taking pictures. We will be meeting up with other friends fo the station, and perhaps a B or C-level celebrity.

Wish me luck,

Mike G.

Hmm...

You know how sometimes you think you know a certain fact, but never actually witness or experience it?

Well, I just confirmed the fact that direct light is to strippers as garlic is to vampires.

Just thought you'd like to know.

More Nerdvana...

So, anyone out there thinking I couldn't get nerdier?

I spent roughly 6 hours in a Best Buy parking lot for a video game.

As most of humanity knows, Halo 2 was unleashed around the world this morning at the stroke of midnight. Gamers from all over gave up precious Internet time to stand in line to be the first on their block to own the game.

I was there with the rest of the P1 Wild Ass Circus for a live broadcast. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware that we would be outside, and the midday weather was extremely pleasant. As the hours passed, I did the only thing a guy in shorts and a t-shirt could do.

Completely by chance, I had my flannel robe in my car. While it did keep me from freezing, it led people to beleive that I had rushed to the store as soon as I woke up. Why I have a flannel robe in my car is another story altogether.

There were a couple of bright spots; Papa John's sent some pizza, and the cutest newspaper reporter I've seen was there to ask questions of the crowd.

It was a good time, and please stay tuned for some entries that I thought I'd never ever make.

Take Care,
Mike G.

Nerdvana...

Whew.

Thankfully, I found a way to drag myself out of the funk I was in.

WizardWorld Dallas.

Three days of comics, games, collectibles, movies, and tv.

And more nerds than you can shake a lightsaber at.

A shout out to Tim from Keith's Comics for the tickets. Also, tune in Monday night to the P1WAC for some audio from the show.

Thanks to all the people that spoke with me, including the sword salesman, trading card gamer, and the generic comic fan.

Your pal,

Hunker Down...

Gah.

Well, it looks like we've got four more years of 'compassionate conservatism'.

And at least one or two new Supreme Court Justices.

Either way, this nation looks to be as divided as ever.

Any other candidate would realize that the lack of a true mandate calls for a great deal of bipartisanship. The thing is, we've been here before.

After the 2000 election, and even after 9/11, Bush had the opportunity to unite the nation. On both occasions, the Bush White House chose to further a right-wing agenda under an increasingly expanding shadow of secrecy. And now, without the fear of an election, Bush can pretty much do what he wants.

But if you're rich, white, rich or white, congrats. You guys really dodged a bullet there.

So what did we learn? Well, apparently the much hyped youth vote was just that. I can only assume that the call of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was stronger than the call to vote.

And while the writing may be on the wall, Kerry is holding off on conceding. I don't blame him, and given what happened in 2000, he doesn't have much of a choice. I think that he knows it's over, though.

What really bothers me is the fact that so many people who were fired up by this campaign will become so discouraged.

I don't know...If I could I'd take a four year nap. I'll try and keep a stiff upper lip, but for now I'm going back to bed.

The People Have Spoken...


Well, freedom is the right of all sentient beings...

I just hope that the simmering Dinobot Scandal doesn't ruin his mandate of "Energon For All".

A Friendly Reminder...

Please vote.

Whether you're voting for someone or against the other guy, whether it's to make something legal, or keep it from becoming law.

And after you vote, go to someone on the other side and shake their hand. Like it or not, we still have to live our lives regardless of who wins.

Here's hoping we actually find out who won,
