Odds and ends

This comes from Dan Gross in today’s Daily News. It’s about a guy who’s trying to raise finances for a movie he wants to put together: Mazzotta says that among the guests will be David Proval (Richie Aprile in “The Sopranos”); Johnny “Roastbeef” Williams; Doylestown’s “American Idol,” Justin Guarini; Abe Vigoda, and other actors. The $100 ticket includes a buffet, wine and beer, and a performance by Guarini. Wow, I get to see Justin Guarini live for only $100? Holy cow! Why don’t you up it to $125 and see if you can get Snow? By the way, the photo above is of Johnny “Roast Beef” Williams. There are rumors that Philly’s favorite quizmaster is changing his name to Johnny “Corned Beef” Goodtimes, but that has not been confirmed.

I posted a new poll on the right side, so vote when you get a chance.

In a political realm, I came across this write up about the threat of a nuclear attack on Iran via Blinq. It’s kind of long, but I think it’s worth the time. With Bush’s poll numbers at an all time low, I suspect that this talk of nuclear war is a way of getting the “base” excited. “Hell yeah, let’s blow stuff up,” they’re saying right now. “Let’s drop them nucular bombs on ’em. That’ll put ’em in line. Now toss me another Budweiser and pump up that Toby Keith.”
