  1. First!

    I will be in vegas in July. Let me know if you want to go to the Foundation Room!

    Keep up the great show.

  2. On my day off I decided to go claim my free 2500 points at Red Rock Casino. It is really a nice place, but gaming can be poor. I did walk away breaking even this time.
    Cherry Nighclub ( has an interesting entrance. Looked like a place Peter Steele would hang out.
    Also IGT Gaming’s web site now lets you play a Realplayer(yuck) file that explains their games. Sure enough the ex-official “Price is Right” is there. Check it out at
    Hot this weekend topping out at 111 yesterday.

  3. Tim, I recall you mentioning a mid-July trip in that unpublished conference call we did with Hunter. I’ll be there the 16th-18th. If you’re around, drinks on me!

  4. Another great show, guys… For clarification- “Tiny KISS” is the 3 “little persons” and one, uh, PORKY girl. “Mini KISS” is the all-midget group…

  5. Hi Tim and Michelle,

    Love the show. Play it on the MP3 everyday at work.

    Did you get a chance to record the casino ambient sounds you mentioned a while back?

    Dean in Houston

  6. I love the feud between Tiny and Mini Kiss. The drummer of Tiny Kiss was once in Mini Kiss. He was thrown out because he says “Gene Simmons” was jealous of all the attention he got. (BTW Mini “Gene” is also Little Jay Leno on Conan O’brien). The drummer went out west and started up Tiny Kiss. And Mini Kiss sued.

    The guy also pulled a brilliant move on a recent feud feature on Comedy Central. He said that Mini Kiss didn’t play their instruments, which is true, but neither does Tiny Kiss. Way to get the kettle, pot. Tiny Kiss ‘plays’ those $40 First Act guitars they sell at Wal Mart. Even their “Gene Simmons” plays a First Act six string, even though he’s supposed to be a bass player on four strings.

    Okay, I’m way too into it. I just love feuding midgets.

  7. I’ve got to agree with Mr. Martingale. I definitely heard “Hollywood” in there.

    So is this girl saying that Planet Hollywood is bankrupt before it even finished the renovations?

    That would be kind of following the tradition of the Aladdin, wouldn’t it?

  8. I don’t recall many girls listening to the phantom soundtrack when I was in college. During the first four years it seems like Tori Amos was on the required listening list, but that switched to Tim’s favorite Sarah MC laugh in by my last four years.

  9. Listening to this week’s show in a room at the Barbary Coast while staring at the 30-foot-tall ass on the Jubilee billboard outside… life is good. You guys were right about Barbary Coast; it rocks! I sprang for the wireless internet in my room ($11/day, ouch!) and hooked the PC up to the speakers on the plasma TV so I could hear the show in all its glory.

    Gotta run. Mini Hall & Oates is singing backup for Big Elvis today and I don’t want to miss that.

  10. I did see Mini Kiss about a year ago and they’re not as cool as they sound.

  11. I’d rather have a cell phone that reminds me to call my friends when I’m drunk.

  12. Tom C., I’m a little concerned that you know that much about Tiny and Mini Kiss.

    Fun facts though. Keep researching and keep us updated. I’m definitely going to see the Tinys on my next trip to Vegas.

  13. Tim and Michelle,
    After hearing you mention that you saw Dennis Miller live twice in show 69, I was worried that you might be Republicans. However, after hearing you joke about “the internets” twice and saying, “Lou Reed is a cool guy”, I realized that can’t be.
    Don’t feel compelled to respond to this.
    Love your show. Maybe I’ll run into you at O’Sheas sometime.

  14. In todays Sun it was stated that Lake Las Vegas will sue Hall & Oates for backing out of last week’s concert. They also cancelled a concert in Laughlin. It said Hall was concerned with the heat.

  15. Are you talking about Paris Hilton’s reggae song? It might be an interesting novelty tune if it were 2 minutes long, but it is nearly interminable. Just like her career.
