This is pretty cool news, y’all.
AJ (that’s what his friends call him) will find himself in a “No Holds Barred. No restrictions” interview with our host-with-the-most, Brian Mollica.
AJ will be on the FEBRUARY 3rd, 2011 Awkward Silence episode, which starts LIVE at 6PM (PST). If you’ve ever wanted to ask AJ a question (like, “where’s the best place to go bandana shopping?”), THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO!
See you on Thursday night!

When it comes to great Las Vegas Video, we’re working hard at the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK to develop great content. With that great content comes the hope that we attract great sponsors to the network and our shows.
I’m proud to say that with the New Year comes a new sponsor for the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK. We are very proud to be working with Dr. Richard Rothman and LASIK of Nevada.
In practice for over 20 years, Dr. Rothman has performed over
30,000 40,000 LASIK procedures and is the most experienced LASIK surgeon living in Nevada. I’ve known Dr. Rothman for several years now and have been impressed with his practice and the testimonials he continues to receive.
Speaking of testimonials, the LASIK of Nevada ad we’re running features Academy Award-nominated actor Chazz Palminteri, who flew from New York to get his LASIK procedure done by Dr. Rothman.
As part of LASIK of Nevada’s sponsorship, I asked if they’d offer VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK viewers special pricing. . .and they agreed to do so! Simply visit LasikOfNV.com/VVN and you’ll see that in addition to 50% off premium LASIK, if you mention “VVN”, you’ll receive another $200 discount!
If you’re considering LASIK, be sure to include Dr. Rothman and LASIK of Nevada in your research!

I just saw this on Twitter, which lead me to a Las Vegas Sun article about a robbery that happened this morning at 3:50am at the Bellagio.
According to the article, a man in motorcycle garb walked up to a craps table, pulled a gun, and demanded chips. He was seen fleeing on a motorcycle, heading westbound on Flamingo.
Police think the robber is the same person who robbed the Suncoast casino (located in Summerlin) on December 9th (stole less than $20k).

As part of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast‘s addition to the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK, we’ve decided to switch from an audio podcast to a live streaming video show that will be available as a video podcast as well. After launching the network and several shows (Pub Crawl, Getting REAL (Estate) in Vegas and Strip Search!), we’re about ready for our closeup.
Our first live show within the network will be this Sunday, at 10AM Pacific. You’ll be able to join us on the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK “Live” page by going here: http://www.VegasVideoNetwork.com/LIVE
Hope to see you there! We’ve got a lot to catch up on!

Hey everybody, just a quick post letting everybody know that the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK is online!
The Vegas Video Network is an online broadcasting network that specializes in insider news and expert views about Las Vegas.
We built the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK to end the struggle of finding Vegas-related video that is centrally located, professionally-produced, timely and relevant. We’re driven upon three key principles:
- An easy-to-use website
- The sophistication and live aspects of Broadcast TV
- Las Vegas experts who promote the city and are actively engaged with their viewers
We had our Launch Party last Saturday. Lots of folks in attendance, both at the studio and online (15 states, UK, Germany, Canada and Russia). It went out live (naturally) and the video of the festivities is now available as a video-on-demand file.
Please take a moment and visit the site. We’ve got a bunch of great shows lined up on the network – something for everybody.
Our first show to go live will be “Pub Crawl”, which premiers this Wednesday (tomorrow) at 7:30PM. Come by and see what we’re up to!

As many of you have noticed (by the way, I understand the emails and voice mails, but sending a big scary guy to the house was a bit much, no?), it’s been quite some time since our last podcast episode. And while we’re not know for the frequency of our episodes, I do have an excuse.
I’ve been “heads down” since August 2nd on the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK. I think it’s going to be a big deal. I hope you feel the same. Please sign up. You’ll like it, I promise.

I had heard earlier this month that a lion attacked a trainer at The Lion Habitat at MGM Grand. Come to find out, a tourist was shooting video when it all took place!
The attack begins off camera. It appears the male lion decided he’d had enough of the thinner trainer. After the initial attack, the lion and trainer are separated only for the lion to go after him again a bit later in the video.
Here’s a thought – let’s stop thinking that putting a wild animal in an unnatural environment isn’t going to eventually piss it off.
