Whopperjawed!

Today I used the word "whopperjawed" on the air to refer to the signs at First Ave and Diamond.  A caller challenged my use of that word, telling me "You're not from around here, are you?". 

JFK Website

Found a great web site today looking for questions for the Afternoon Game Show.

www.jfk50.org

It's from the John F Kennedy Library.  They have digitized a lot of video, papers, speeches etc and have put them together in an interesting online exhibt.  I will enjoying slogging thru it later tonight.

I'm obsessed with Snooki

Okay, I will admit it.  I have never watched "Jersey Shore" the program on MTV that is the current rage.  (The Corner Bar on the West Side even has a "Jersey Shore" night.)  But I am obsessed with "Snooki" - I think her real name is Nicole something or other.  She has really become a larger than life celebrity and I am really impressed how she let David Letterman make fun of her to promote her book.   I think it would be fun to have her on as a guest on the Afternoon Show.

Happy New Year and is this Real?

Great to be back after a long holiday break.  Still wouldn't mind winning the Mega Millions and going on PERMANENT vacation, but that is not going to happen.

I posted a video here that has been floating around the web and Facebook all day.  I'm a little suspicious, but still it's very telling. 

Flying the Starship Enterprise and uploading videos

This video came up today (there is a Star Trek exhibit coming to a museum in Louisville) and I thought everyone around here had seen this.  I worked at a station in Cincinnati in the 80's and this was for a promotion with Star Trek - The Next Generation.  They flew us out to Universal Studios and we met the entire cast of both shows.   (And FYI,  Shatner is a pain in the posterior.)  Diane Douglas saw this and now calls me Secret Squirel.  So enjoy - I now have my own You Tube channel (MarkElliottWIKY) and I think I can upload videos to it from my phon

I hate to ask... BUT

I would really like to win something.  A Courier and Press Reader's Choice or Evansville Living "Best Of" is probably not attainable without me buying hundreds of newspapers and magazines.  But I found this contest from a TV show, and I would love to participate.

Here's the deal from the LIVE with Regis and Kelly website..

Tuesday Afternoon on the Afternoon Show

Perhaps that's redunant.  Here's our topics -

The Beatles on iTunes

Baseball or Football

and we'll play Let's Make a Deal on the Afternoon Game Show after 5.

Okay, I admit it - I like Cher!

I'm a big Cher fan  have been for a long time.  She was on David Letterman Thursday night, and she KILLED!  Watch the video here...

I might be a little tired this afternoon

I hung around the newsroom last night helping with election coverage, and I know that many of you are SHOCKED!  Yes, I am a political junkie and enjoyed every minute.  After I got home, I started watching TV since the races in California and the West Coast were just getting decided, fell asleep in the recliner and woke up in a daze.  So if I'm a little slow or lethargic Wednesday afternoon, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Happy Halloween

As I've said on the air this week, this is not one of my favorite holidays.  But I'm trying to get in the spirit.  Check out the video link on my page to see some pretty good Halloween pranks.
