this list is worth it for joseph gordon-levitt’s monologue. also, hader losing it as stefon and hamm & buble were actually funny.
How the F did Shy Ronnie not make this list?!?
To answer your question, Shy Ronnie was on the list until the very last minute. I bumped it to make room for the Betty White version of “Scared Straight,” mainly because we sort of felt like it was necessary to make room for something from the Betty White episode (because of the ratings, buzz, etc. that episode generated). I should’ve moved it to the honorable mentions, but alas, I didn’t.
“…when you publish your Social Security number prominently on your website and billboards, people take it as an invitation to steal your identity. LifeLock CEO Todd Davis, whose number is displayed in the company’s ubiquitous advertisements, has … been a victim of identity theft at least 13 times…”—
It is almost impossible to stop a hacker who has singled you out for attack. Giving out his SSN like this, he was literally asking to be attacked and now he has proven that his company is impotent in the face of targeted theft.
Tumblr Talk - Dudley and Bob Show - Austin, TX - May 3rd, 2010
For those who don’t know, my gateway onto the Tumblr platform was through the producer of a local morning radio show, Angela Davis. She’s always been an enjoyable character to listen to everyday, and I ended up becoming engrossed with the daily postings over at her awesome Tumblr blog West Whim (follow her!).
Yesterday, I ended up getting a shout-out on her morning show during a discussion where Angela describes her first Tumblr blocking by a competing radio personality. Austin’s very own milquetoast Ryan Seacrest-clone, Bobby Bones seemed to have issue with this post from Angela and has seemingly internet snubbed her. I believe that I have been blocked by the Bone man as well after this particular post.
It’s interesting to me that someone who is on the radio daily and is loved and adored by a certain listening demographic (who I like to call The Stupids) has such thin skin. I don’t care too much about the snub, but I enjoyed getting a mention on my favorite radio show and know that the Bone Man has listeners amongst the Austin Tumblr circuit. If you’re tired of celebrity birthdays and “Name That Tune”, you guys should switch over to 93.7 KLBJ FM and give it a listen.
It’s infinitely better than the daily dribble spouted off by the Bonester and his lame crew.
Big thanks to “Dudley and Bob” producer Angela Davis (marjoree) for letting me sit in to watch the show on my birthday last Thursday! Matt’s been one of my favorite musicians since his first album and he continues to be amazing more than a decade later.
From this morning. We’ve cut back a lot on the live music this year but occasionally I still get to book someone I like & Matt is a show favorite; we all think Animal Boy should have won Album of the Year at the 2009 Austin Music Awards.
