Monday afternoon I asked a question that caused a lot of controversy, most of it because I didn't really phrase the question very well. Here it is:
"Take a bank, any bank and look at all the accounts that have money in them. Look at the balances on those accounts. Half of those balances have something in common. What?"
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?".
Found a great web site today looking for questions for the Afternoon Game Show.
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.
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.
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.
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 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..
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 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.
