I hope we get to hear some CRAP today!

Correction, Mr. Fab will make them gifts announcements and giving away. Sorry about that!
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:04pm Mr Fab:

For a measly 20 bucks, one can grab another Norton/Kicks fun pack (T shirt+book+CD+vinyl) . One was given away earlier during Friendly Persuasion, so maybe we can persuade someone to take a chance on this?
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:24pm Mr Fab:

or you can grab: Nothing and the No Names / The New Surfsiders Norton 7" 2 pack Norton 45 record
The New Surfsiders play hilariously messed-up Beach boys covers.

I hope all this Vegasness hasn't scared those donations away....much less the chat room.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/8/19 6:26pm Rich in Washington:

I'm here! Right now weighted down by a suddenly affectionate cat.
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:27pm Mr Fab:

no, everyone's been mentally transported to vintage Vegas. I hope the *ching ching ching* of slot machines rouses them to put a tip on our tray.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/8/19 6:27pm Otis Fodder:

I'm sort of here. Listening on tablet in kitchen.
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:28pm Mr Fab:

Another prize! Get your party started with "Hipshakers Vol. 4 Bossa Nova and Grits." These prizes are for this show only!
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:28pm Don-O:

Well, some are breathing out there. Sorry if I sounded selfish there. BTW, last week I got a copy of Cult Vegas and so far it's a hell of a read.
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:32pm Don-O:

According to the book, Prima and Smith did a movie called Hey, But Hey, Girl in 1958. According to the author, the movie sadly doesn't live up to their music and persona.
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:32pm Mr Fab:

thanks to Matthew from Seattle! Another Swag-for-Lifer. Which is something you all should consider, you'll be glad you did.
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:33pm Don-O:

Mathew, you're da MAN!!!!
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:34pm Don-O:

The book even has a few pages on Cook E. Jarr! Seems I should look this crazy lounge monster on YouTube!!
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:34pm Mr Fab:

i saw a great musical play called "Louie and Kelly at the Sahara." Def recommended if it comes to your town.
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:38pm Mr Fab:

*ching ching ching* That jackpot sound can only mean another pledge: Thx to Rebecca from Hoboken! She sez, and I quote "I like your show."
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:39pm Don-O:

BTW, MGM Grand announced a "grand" project that will "increase profits and cost operational costs" like replacing the bartenders with automated drink machines. You notice they said nothing about customer service.
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:44pm Don-O:

Rebecca, the queen o' the east coast!!! Thanks!!!
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:53pm Don-O:

BTW, is there a way to find out the BGM for THIS spot?!?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/8/19 6:54pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks for the wild Vegas trip, Don-O!
Taking the party next door directly after this:

Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:56pm Mr Fab:

"automated drink machines"? Blech! Gong the complete opposite direction of the 'craft cocktail' movement, REAL smart move!
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:57pm Don-O:

background music with the guitar strumming and the vibe tinkling behind that Castaway spot I just played. That snipet has been driving me nuts since forever. I'm guessing there a audio site that filter out that tune and tell me what it is.....I hope!
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 6:59pm Don-O:

MGM also said that their employees "should worry about layoffs"....which means you better plan you next job NOW!!!
Avatar Fri. 3/8/19 7:00pm Mr Fab:

hmm, i'll listen to it again.
