Care to Karaoke?


This is why McCain hightails it out of the venue after debates and isn't allowed anywhere near the press. He needs to come down...

(Thanks, I think, to Tim Musho for sharing this with me.)


I will be one of the judges at an fun karaoke competition tonight at The Spot (4437 N. Broadway St) from 6pm–9pm. The event is to support the upcoming film, Reginald, directed and produced by friend and blossoming independent filmmaker, Joseph Martinez. Tickets are $30.00 at the door, and there will be food and copious drinks available. There will be a silent auction for fantastic prizes as well! Joining me on the judges panel are Tobey Geise and Darren Stephens.

You might even see me do karaoke. Unless that deters you from coming, then I promise not to impose it on you.

Hope to see you there!


Yesterday, I asked...

"Former Lehman CEO Richard Fuld got a surprise at the gym when what happened to him?"

55% said
"His membership was revoked"
- It was the company gym. His credit's no good at Bally's.

45% said
"His aerobics class turned on him"
- Punch, punch,punch...feel your pulse...and kick!

No one picked
"He got stuffed into a locker"

And no one picked the correct answer
"He was punched in the face"

According to the Business & Media Institute,
while former Lehman CEO Richard Fuld was testifying before the House Oversight Committee Oct. 6, CNBC reported he had been punched in the face at the Lehman Brothers gym after it was announced the firm was going bankrupt.

CNBC and Vanity Fair contributor Vicki Ward said Fuld was attacked at the gym on a Sunday following the bankruptcy.
“From two very senior sources – one incredibly senior source – that he went to the gym after … Lehman was announced as going under. He was on a treadmill with a heart monitor on. Someone was in the corner, pumping iron and he walked over and he knocked him out cold. And frankly after having watched this, I’d have done the same too.”

Ward determined Fuld deserved the beating based on his testimony before the committee.

“I thought he was shameless,” Ward said. “I thought it was appalling. He blamed everyone. He blamed, as you say, ‘naked short sellers’ over and over in case we didn’t get the point, when in fact hedge funds like Harbinger had money locked up in Lehman and was shorting it to try and make the most of the money that they already had. He blamed everybody but himself.”

Why wasn't this part of the $700 billion bail out? We should all get the chance to line up and bitch slap these motherf**kers.
