Greg Morton & David Lynch Agree!

You can’t watch a movie on your @$#%! phone! I said it before and I’ll say it again.

When I performed at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival this past year, my monologue was all about superheroes. One of the jokes was about watching movies on your phone. I saw this ad in the city square which said, watch Spiderman 3 on your cel phone. I’ve always felt that this was ridiculous, and now I’ve finally found someone who agrees with me. Director and Film Maker, David Lynch!

Watch this hilarious video. I don’t think I can say it any better. You can’t watch a movie on your @$#%! phone. Unless the movie is Valentines Day. Then it doesn’t matter.

NEW XBOX 360 SLIM Review!


Greg Morton has just bought himself a Xmas present. That’s right. HAPPY XMAS TO ME!!! A brand new Xbox 360 slim. No more three red lights! Some of you may remember my rant over my second XBOX and my fight with Microsoft to fix the damn thing. Now I have a fourth one and hopefully this one’s a keeper.

Microsoft has given the 360 an extreme makeover with its new piano black finish and chrome accents. The perfect electronic component for anyone with 80’s furniture. I’ve had the new xbox 360 slim since Friday and I love it! It’s slimmer, sleeker, sexier and a lot quieter than my old 360. Never again will my wife ask, “Where is that jet engine sound coming from?”

I’ve had the device running for 5 hours and it barely feels warm to the touch. If you watch the video I have posted on youtube, you’ll see the large grill and giant fan in this sucker. After Microsoft spent 1 billion dollars, fixing it’s red ring of death problem, I doubt they wish to repeat this scenario with it’s new console.

All controls on the device are touch sensitive. A feather touch of the buttons will turn it on, or open it’s tray. It’s a thing of beauty! πŸ™‚

The transfer of all my data from my 120 GB HD went smoothly. (Roughly 1:15) A few licenses were not transferred but I’m not stressed. Some of those titles have been discontinued on XBOX live.

I feel sorry for anyone who ran out and bought an Elite or upgraded their Wi-Fi. This new console should have been called the Elite, with it’s built in Wi-Fi, HDMI, and 250 GB HD. Oh well, I’m just glad I waited. Or that my old console held up until the new one came out. πŸ˜‰

Check out my unboxing video, where I compare the old and new xbox 360!

On Sat Jun 19, Greg Morton makes his second appearance on CBC’s The Debaters show, hosted by Steve Paterson. The topics will be, Darth Vader, Best or Worst Dad & Stay at Home Dads.

Next up, domestic daddy Tim Nutt doffs his apron and throws down an oven mitt as he tries to prove to patriarchy propagator David Hemstad that “stay at home dad” is a job title any man can be proud of. We may be talking about fathers this week. but The Debaters remains the “mother” of all radio comedy shows. Catch the action Saturday at 1:00 PM on Radio One. It’s a good one!

Fans of The Debaters may recall the Greg Morton’s last debaters topic. Star Wars vs. Lord of the Rings. This knock down drag ’em out fight between comedians Greg Morton and Ron Sparks, now available on itunes.

VEGAS BABY!!!

Greg Morton performs all this week at the Comedy Stop, Sahara
Greg Morton is back in Vegas for the third time this year! Performing at the Comedy Stop at the Sahara Hotel in a brand new showroom. The Comedy Stop is not gone. They’ve moved us into this huge theatre. The same theatre where the fabulous Rick Thomas, and Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack show perform.. If your hotel is on the other end of the strip, don’t worry. Take the monorail. It’s the quickest and cheapest way to get up and down the strip. You pay $5, or $28 for a three-day pass. That’s cheaper and faster than a cab and it drops you off at the Sahara’s back door.

How do I like the new digs? The sound and lighting in this room are incredible and the stage is huge! Most stand-ups would be intimidated, by its size, but not me. That just gives me more real estate to gyrate, rotate, and lose weight!

That is, if I can stay away from the buffet. πŸ˜‰

Also appearing on the show…
Cork Procktor and Greg Vaccariello
Show time is at 9:00. See you then!

PS. My Wii weight was down to 175 this week. Try wearing 4 layers of pants in 110 degree weather. I probably sweat most of that weight off.
