Great Fun! ON THE AIR with K-Mac & Reese @TheSportsShop1

K-Mac & Reese

This morning, I walked into what can only be described as the barbershop scene from Eddie Murphy’s, “Coming to America.”  The Sports Shop, with Reese and K-Mac on WDNC-AM, Buzz Sports Radio in Raleigh-Durham, NC. is the highest rated morning-drive sports talk show in the country hosted by two African-Americans.  Ah, … actually, it’s the only one in the country, hosted by two African-Americans!  I gotta give these guys props man.  They are entertaining as hell.  Quick, colorful, comic banter, without the dry, stat filled, who’s on the DL list B.S. you hear on the other sports talk shows.  This is a sports radio talk show FOR THE FANS and I give it my highest recommendation!

The show airs weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. ET. Here is a link to a news article describing our show (http://raleighco.com/media-circus/sports-shop-assumes-rare-sports-talk-spot-for-black-hosts/).

This June, The Sports Shop will be celebrating its 6th anniversary!  Congratulations K-Mac (Kevin McClendon) and Reese (Erroll Reese)!  Well Done!

Greg Morton @ Baltimore Comedy Factory … Here’s what you missed!

If you didn’t get a chance to come out to the Baltimore Comedy Factory this past week, (March 29 – 31) then here’s a little taste of what you missed.

Two completely sold out shows, packed with spring feverish fans on a full moon weekend. Well… it sure felt like a full moon with some of the Factory’s most ruckus crowds ever!   Standing ovations every show and some of  the best raw comedy by C.J. and  Alabama,

If you’re new to this site and you want to follow Greg, please subscribe.  You’ll get weekly special announcements and access to fresh new content like the Mr. Gingrich song that debuted on this sight.

If you missed this past week at the Baltimore Comedy Factory, look for Greg to return to Baltimore, Thanksgiving Weekend.

Special thanks to Mickey, Amelia and Spiegel on 98 Rock.  (Mickey made me laugh the hardest I’ve ever laughed on air.)

Shout out to the folks at Fox 45 News for a memorable segment that had people stopping Greg on the street and in the grocery store!

NUIT BLANCHE TORONTO / 2009 REVIEW

CN Tower pulsates to electronic music on Nuit Blanche, 2009

CN Tower pulsates to electronic music on Nuit Blanche, 2009

This past Saturday, I attended Toronto’s 4th annual Nuit Blanche sponsored by Scotiabank.  A  celebration of contemporary art in the heart of the city.  This year, the event was attended by over 130,000 people!  (Some of them blotto) The event ran from 7PM Sat. to 7AM Sun.

I said to my wife, “I’m up for the challenge.  132 installations provided by 550 artist, spread out over three different sectors of downtown Toronto.  (God knows how many square miles)  Hell, we LIVE downtown!  All we need do is to step outside our door, and partake in the festivities.  Let’s do this.  Let’s pull an all-nighter!”

After seeing only a handful  exhibits, we sheepishly retired to our home at 3:00 AM.  (Someone should have had a nappy-poo.)

Frankly, I’m not sure anyone could see everything unless it were carefully planned.  Fortunately, the organizers provided an online digital guide.  A paperless brochure, filled with artist names, statements, pictures and information.

Let’s say you’re looking at a work of contemporary art, but you have no idea who the artist is, the title of the piece or what the piece represents, or even if  it’s art. WTF???  (The lines between contemporary art and reality are often blurred.) Simply take a digital snapshot of the icon next to the piece with your BlackBerry or iPhone camera, and all pertinent information will appear on screen.

If you want to locate that particular installation,  you can use the GPS function on your portable smart phone device.  Wow!  I LIVE IN THE  F@#$% FUTURE!  People were excitedly texting and tweeting each other, voting for their favorite installations.  It was very cool!

Here’s my final assessment of the evening…  WE LOVED IT!

I would strongly encourage anyone thinking of visiting Toronto next fall, to include Nuit Blanche as part of their schedule.  Hell, you’re going to see a lot of these landmarks anyway.  Why not see them with drunk people?

Aside from a few novice art critics and some amateur drinkers who left behind their own versions of Jackson Pollock, I thoroughly enjoyed this all-night contemporary art thing.

You know what the best thing about it was?  The price.  Absolutely FREE!

“Hey honey, let’s go get pissed up and look at some modern art.

I will be posting more digital pictures and videos once they’re developed.

*Hats off to all the organizers and volunteers who helped the night run smoothly.

TEA BAGGED AT THE LOUVRE

GTA IV, Time to do some lines.

Last night, I picked up my copy of GTA IV.  I live in downtown Toronto so I took my wife for protection and my camera to capture the circus.  Here’s what I learned…

  • A lot of gamers do not bathe
  • A line up for GTA IV is not a good place to meet girls
  • Crack addicts see line ups as an economic opportunity

I picked up the special edition, which comes with a safety deposit lock box, tote bag, music cd, hard cover art book, one month subscription to xbox live, Liberty City Subway map, and GTA IV video game for the 360.  Nice package and very impressive!

The line ups had an average of 100 to 200 people in them.  

Futureshop was the most fun with free hats and a live DJ.  One kid in line at the Futureshop won a Playstation 3!  The wait, however, was considerably longer than Game Shack.  

Game Shack had one of the shortest and most efficient lines.  Game Shack patrons were coming out of the mall three minutes after twelve with their special edition GTA IV packages, and posters held high while performing a victory dance.  

The Best Buy line up had the most media coverage but appeared the most tepid in mood and creativity.  A mock Liberty City squad car with two uniformed gum-smacking models swinging night sticks?  LAME!  … and they gave away fuzzy dice.  ???

EB Gamestop had the most orderly lineup.  Situated inside the quiet, climate controlled Eaton Centre, I spotted over 100 GTA faithful sitting in a lotus position, quietly playing their Nintendo DS with ipod buds stuffed in their ears.

I found the over reaction of the local Po’ Po’ to be quite humorous.  I’ve never seen so many squad cars sitting two abreast, waiting for a bunch of nerds to start simulating their favorite M rated video game by car jacking someone, and driving off with a 4 star wanted level.  It’s a video game people!  Relax!  

 

grand theft auto IV… YEEEESSSSS!

Tonight, I will be standing in line to pick up the new Grand Theft Auto IV game.  I’ll give you my impressions throughout the week as I work my way through the game.
