OverheardOnTheStrip Having lived in Las Vegas since 2004, one of the most enjoyable things I do is visit The Strip. And one of the funniest parts of those visits is overhearing what others say while walking around with a 4-foot margarita strapped around their neck. I thought it would be cool to create a single online spot to list all these funny quotes and comments so PodWorx just launched a new website called Overheard on The Strip.

Here’s the URL: http://www.OverheardOnTheStrip.com

If you’ve heard something funny during your time on The Strip, we would love for you to join the fun. Please take a moment and stop by the website. Because much of the fun of a Las Vegas Strip visit is the people watching (and listening), I hope you enjoy your visit to our brand-new website!

For those of you who read this blog from outside of the Las Vegas area, you are missing out on a city-wide increase in energy that I’ve not seen since March of last year.  You feel it on the street corners, in the bars, and on The Strip. 

What’s all the buzz about?

People of all ages are uber-excited about the upcoming Living in Las Vegas Spring 2010 Meet Up!!

[queue thunderous applause]

In three short days, the who’s who of podcast listeners will gather at Brio in Town Square at 6:30PM to share stories and libations, meet new friends, and bask in the light that is magically created when we gather to celebrate this groovy little podcast.

“Who is going to be there, Scott?”

Just the coolest people evah!  Here’s some of the folks that have already RSVP’d:

  • Scott (Hey, that’s me!)
  • Melissa (Naughty Jelly Sweet)
  • Jacob (Blogs on the LiLV site with me)
  • Sally  (Wife of he who is Jacob and photographer of the stars)
  • Neil (from the UK(!) – LiLV is International Baby!!)
  • Sarah (from the UK(!) – wife of Neil and Melissa-level shopper)
  • Cheryl (Ph.D in smart podcast listening (and other stuff I can’t explain))
  • David (Listener Email theme? He wrote that.  Did our new logo, too.)
  • Alicia (Groovy gal, wife of David, and owes me chocolate)
  • Malya (not a vampire, muy funero)
  • Ira (new listener, often emailer, new in town)
  • Ted (AccessVegas.com bossman, Las Vegas insider)
  • Oprah (Not really, just checking to see if you’re really reading this)
  • Maria (Recognized Melissa whilst shopping! How cool is that?)
  • Ron (Best stylist in Las Vegas)

Are you coming?  Let me know!! Just click meetup@livinginlv.com and tell me you’ll be there!  If I already know you, I’ll add you to the list above, along with an insightful parenthetical comment.  And if I don’t know you, I’ll add you to our list, along with a less-then-insightful parenthetical comment.  Either way, you’ll be famous!  And your Ma and Pa will think you’re swell.

By the way, If you don’t live in Las Vegas but will BE HERE this Saturday, you should come by and say HI!!  Much fun will be had.  And you could probably use a break from your mind-numbing gambling loss.  (Thanks for that, however.  Our taxes are low ‘cause of great people like you!)

As a reminder, here’s the details:

SAVE THIS DATE: SATURDAY, APRIL 24th, 2010.
START TIME: 6:30PM
LOCATION: Brio Restaurant, Town Square (South Las Vegas Blvd, by Fry’s)

See you on Saturday!!!  Come have some fun and bring a friend!

p.s. Mark G. from Georgia, who won our deer naming content, has asked that I take his winnings and transfer them to a Meet Up attendee.  So, I will buy the third person to arrive a drink – further proof that our listeners are all about giving.

Over the last few days, our readers have seen a steady stream of new blog posts

Have you noticed?

The increased stream of blog posts have been courtesy of the newest contributor to the Living in Las Vegas Podcast website.  I’m happy to introduce our readers/listeners to Jacob Cannon, a good friend of the show and of Melissa and myself (along with his lovely wife Sally!).

Besides sharing the occasional “Man Pizza”, Jacob would constantly send me emails highlighting things happening in the Las Vegas Valley.  I asked him if he’d be interested in sharing his insights with our readers and he graciously agreed to do so.

If you have ideas/tips for Jacob, feel free to shoot him an email: JacobC[at]livinginlv.com. I’m sure he’d love to hear from you!

Welcome, Jacob!  Thanks for joining the team!

It’s been WAY TOO LONG since we had our last official Listener Meet Up.  This travesty must be resolved!  Our first Meet Up was a thrill for us, and each subsequent gathering has been a kick as well.

So why the drought?

No (good) reason, I’m afraid.  Melissa and I are busy folks but that’s no excuse for not creating an excuse to meet up with groovy folks like yourself!

Details will follow, but I wanted to put this date out there now.  The plan is to have our Living in Las Vegas Podcast Spring Meet Up on SATURDAY, April 24th, 2010.

Time and location are to be determined.  If you have a suggestion, PLEASE let me know.

Melissa and I are looking forward to sipping a joyful beverage and hanging out with the greatest people on this earth.  In the meantime, why don’t we all hang out? (Those great people are so hard to talk to.)

Apparently, this Facebook thing is all the rage.  The kids like it, companies are trying to make money with it, and you don’t have to spend fifteen minutes trying to figure out how to update all your followers/friends/fans in 140 characters.  I have a personal page on the Facebook and have now added a “FAN” page for the Living in Las Vegas Podcast.

Are you feeling fantastic?  Want to see videos that aren’t added to our main website?  Then click the thingy below and join the fun!

Living in Las Vegas Podcast Logo (DI) Just a quicky here—wanted to publicly thank LiLV listener David Ivy for his work on our new and improved Living in Las Vegas Podcast Logo.  I asked him to take what we had and make it “more substantial and shiny”.

I think he did a great job!

By the way, David also wrote the kick-ass music for the Listener’s Email section of the show!  (A talented guy, that David.)

If you’d like David to whip up some graphical magic for you, check out his website.

She who will be named “Naughty Jelly Sweet” (ie; Melissa), has decided that this thing of ours will be producing a new episode this Sunday (7/19).

“But wait a minute, Scott”, you say to yourself, “Isn’t this too soon?  Why, it took 55 days between the last two episodes, and 90 days for the last three.”

Yes, I know.  Thanks for that observation.

But Melissa is the boss.  And if she wants to share, I want to share.  Besides, we got a very impressive voice mail on our listener line (206.312.0105) from one of our Living in Las Vegas Podcast listeners that we wanted to get out there muy-pronto.

So this Sunday (7/19) it is.  I expect I’ll have it ready for download before 11am (or after 2pm, depending on some scheduling stuff).

Join Melissa and me as we take in a 51’s AAA baseball game this Saturday.  This is one of our favorite things to do in Las Vegas and will be our first visit for 2009.

Good food.  Good drink.  Good folks.  Mediocre baseball. 

Ah, I love this town.

Date: Saturday, June 20, 2009
Time: 6:30pm
Location: Cashman Field (850 Las Vegas Blvd), in front of ticket windows

It’s amazing how time flies when life happens.  What with Melissa’s work, my new business offerings (Live Streaming Video productions), house guests, graduating kids, and a variety of other odds and ends, it’s been over seven weeks since our last podcast (art gallery, re-piping our house, Miss USA, and Brit Brit).

Well, let’s fix that, shall we?

Melissa and I have finally found time in our schedule to record our next show!  The plan is to record the show this Saturday morning and I’ll have it online sometime Saturday afternoon.  This will be an audio-only show.

On the video front, I am planning a whole new “product” moving forward.

I plan to keep the Live Streaming Video alive when we record some of our full audio episodes.  In addition, instead of then deploying a video of what is an existing audio episode, we’ve got something else in mind that will be shorter, completely separate from our regular episodes, and, if the Gods of Podcast deems doable, more frequent in nature.

Stay tuned (and if you’re in Las Vegas, hire somebody)!

You know what I like about Sundays?  Professional football.  There’s nothing like sitting down to a great game between your two favorite teams.  The excitement, the energy, the compe. . . .huh?. . .no pro football this Sunday?

Are you kidding me? 

What kind of a country is this?!?!  What the hell are you suppose to do this Sunday?  How are you going to be entertained and educated on this day of rest.

Where’s your Sunday bail out package?

Relax.  Your friends Scott and Melissa would never let you suffer.  Here’s the relief from a Sunday of sadness guaranteed to bring a smile to your face:
