No noose is good noose

I'm working the 3-12:00am shift tonight here at News 12 in Woodbury. My only responsiblity in this last hour of my shift is to report the final score of this Giants-Browns debacle, post the Dodgers-Phillies final, and shut off the lights. I thought it would be interesting to show everyone the titles of the articles I have been writing from all over the tri-state area (not exactly the titles but this is what I saved them as):

Baby Murder
Bronx Fire
Bronx Gunfire
Cop Fatal Crash
Dead Wife
Deadly Elevator
Domestic Violence
Execution Style
Fatal Bike Ride
Greenwich Mold
Keanburg Flooding
Love Triangle Murder
Mount Vernon Shooting
Newburgh Murder
Stocks Fall
Violent Robbery

This is a small sample. Who says there's no such thing as good news?

For Cavy..

I found out last weekend that I do a really good Robocop impression. Maybe the best in America. I can do a perfect "Drop it." Kind of like this here..

1663 Days: Phish Reunites in Virginia March 6

After years of phishless summers and grooveless winters, Phish has decided to reunite in the (almost) spring of 2009 in the famous Hampton Coliseum in the heart of Virginia. The break-up will last 1663 days.

I wrote a few month's ago during the saturation of speculation of a reunion that I would be incredibly curious to see them again. How will they sound? Will they be as tight as they once were? Obviously, Trey's legal problems have helped his career in the long run as he performed at some epic concerts this past summer. Without a head full of painkillers, I think this only improves his chances of making this comeback totally worth the wait.
Will I go to VA for the show? Probably not. When they announce additional dates, I'll guarantee a Nassau Coliseum show. A summer tour ending in Limestone, Maine for a 2-day festival would be something I wouldn't miss for the world.

But what is with the break-ups and the reunions? Trey said in 2004 (and I'm paraphrasing) "This is not like the hiatus we took, WE ARE DONE."
My advice would be stop playing with the fans emotions and play some straight funk instead.

I would advise anyone interested to check out for more information and a pretty cool video about the released VA dates.

I was lucky enough to see 10 shows in my day, including the "final" show in Coventry, Vermont. The music was weak but the scene was phenomenal. I was really sad to them go. October 1, 2008 was a very happy day in the life of Bob Doda and many other fans.

It's all about the groove. Welcome Back.

10 Ten things said during a smerce match:

10: You can't turn that fast
9: I can't face
8: I hit R/L
7: What are you holding?
6: I hit both buttons
5: You heard it, Everybody heard it
4: That was a Yamaguchi
3: I'm getting up dazed, Get up dazed? or I'm getting up Enrique Iglesias
1: How are they not going to give that to me?
