Benefit for the family of Michael Boldon, hosted by Jamie Masada @ THE LAUGH FACTORY

This past Wednesday, Jamie Masada, CEO and founder of The Laugh Factory hosted a benefit for the family of Michael Boldon.  A cab driver who was killed on the Las Vegas Strip and Flamingo on Feb. 21st.

 

One hundred percent of the proceeds were given to Boldon’s family to assist them in this time of crisis.  

 

People don’t realize that Las Vegas is not ‘The Hangover,’ it is a community.  If we all come together, we can make a difference.  Like I overheard George say backstage in the green room, “It’s all about giving back.”  

 

Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families who have endured this horrible tragedy and we like to encourage all the clubs on the strip to put on similar benefits to aid the Boldon  family.  

 

Those who attended the show were treated to great show, featuring comedians, Gallagher, George Wallace, and Greg Morton.

Star Wars Opened 35 years ago today! WTF?

Today marks the 35th anniversary of Star Wars.  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO!

The movie that spawned sequels, prequels, animated series, novels, comic books, costumes, toys, video games, board games, and everything imaginable, opened on this date  35 years ago.  I keep saying it but I still can’t get used to it. 

I remember seeing it at a matinée back in 1977 with my father and my sister.  We walked out of the theatre stunned by both the sudden brightness of the outdoors and the mind-boggling visual effects.  It reminded my father of the old Flash Gordon serials he used to watch as a kid.

Later that year, I went see the film, when ever and where ever I could, once a week every week for the next year and a half.  I was a big movie fan back then and I would see at least three to five movies per week.  Hey, movies were $5 back then.  $2 every Tuesday so why wouldn’t I go to the movies every week.

Seeing Star Wars with my dad became a father/son tradition.  When Empire and Jedi came out, we were the first to see them.  A bond that would only be broken by the prequels.

I had the film on Betamax, VHS, and I would have had it on Laser disc too but I had just spent $800. on a Betamax machine!  Ugh!

Star Wars.  35 years!  Where did the time go?  Phew!

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! 🙂

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. 😉

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