Communication is IMPORTANT...

I have to tell you - this gave me one of the widest, strangest smiles as I was walking out the door this last Friday on my way home to work on our podcasts, and - what the HELL is this?

If you've ever seen one of those regular CB-radio antennas, ok, no worries. If you've ever seen one of those "bullwhip" CB-radio antennas, ok, boy that's impressive. But folks - what DIMENSION does this antenna allow you to connect to? In the case of NORAD somehow losing power, I am almost certain that this Illinoian could drive to the rescue and help assue that not only could we monitor the airspace of the entire United States, but also get every single HDTV station to the 13" screen on their dashboard. Amazingly huge, folks - I couldn't laugh, or smile completely because I couldn't quite believe what I was seeing. Thoughts?

Ahh, the Hall of Fame for Cal and - Hey - Who is That?

While preparing for beddie-bye this evening, I stumbled across the "most recent 24 hour pictures from the AP" slideshow online and thought I'd click through them before heading off to slumber. It was great to see an aging Cal Ripken, and while I know that Tony Gwynn was also on the recent Hall of Fame Ballot - who on EARTH is the dude below that apparently ATE Tony Gwynn and put on his clothes!? Yikes!Tony! You and Tommy Lasorda would make great Diet Buddies - TRULY! Get back in the game and drop some poundage so that you can give us many more years of fantastic stories and outstanding examples of that silky smooth voice.

Congrats to Cal and Tony - two truly great champions who continue to help younger (and THINNER!) people understand what determination, sacrifice and stick-to-it-ive-ness are all about and what kinds of rewards they provide.

2GuysTalking: 24 - Interview 24 Production Designer Again!

For those that are still unaware, I have spent the last year with my friend, co-worker and podcast partner Brian Sirimaturos creating not only 2 great podcast shows, but an entire Podcast Network - The 2GuysTalking Original Content Podcast Network to be exact! We are a mere 12 days outside of a new season of the hit Fox show, "24" and Brian and I have been actively creating content for our show that focuses on the events of that show. Recently we had the opportunity to do our second interview with 24 Production Designer Joseph Hodges. This time it's an excellent personal side of Joseph, the man that gives each frame of "24" it's look. Read on and be sure to leave comments here or at the official online discussion forum for 2GuysTalking: 24 (The TwentyFourForum) and look for the second half soon! -- Mike2GuysTalking
