It's taken some time, but The Chicken Ranch- best known brothel or whorehouse in the world is now able to advertise its services in the City of Las Vegas. The first moving billboard was roaming the streets of Vegas with a very tasteful advertisement. Now if they only had shuttle service. Did I really say that?
ESPN The Magazine has an article on the Manning Family and the Manning Passing Academythey run yearly out of Louisiana. Eli, Peyton, and Archie Manning all take part, and from look of it, participants get their monies worth. Even if they only got an autographed ball- These young wannabe QB's could make their money back-but autographs are a no-no.
With Labor Day upon us, you can count on seeing the Halloween displays for candy and decorations will occupy the seasonal aisles of retailers. It is only a few weeks before we begin seeing Holiday ( Christmas and Hanukkah) items being sold. I know the holiday season is here when I see my first TV ad for the holidays. Last year it was in mid-September.
Fred Thompson who has played District Attorney Arthur Branch for the last few years on Law & Order won't be disappearing once he announces his candidacy for President. Since the large majority of L & O reruns are on TNT and USA (cable outlets) and not on broadcast outlets, the FCC's Equal Time Ruling will not affect the reruns.
Too bad they didn't have this back when I frequented Roys, The Whiskey, The Rainbow, and The Troubador......Celebutantes are earning big bucks aligning themselves with some new and not so new clubs that are trying to, or are considered hip!
For example- On Tuesday, PURE nightclub hosted Paris Hilton and her sister, Nicky, as they unveiled new products from Nicky's clothing line. The club later gushed in a release that the sisters "danced their hearts out for the admiring onlookers" as "the two socialites stuck to the main VIP stage."
A table next to Britney Spears New Years Eve Party at a club sold for $50,000.00. So it appears the payments and press make these places the in-spots for now.
Hey What's the big deal, an ex-employee who didn't get along with Miami Ink Tattoo artist Ami James moved to Tinseltown, and opened her own Parlor- Now Kat Von D is getting more press, and her show is on before Miami Ink on TLC. Add to this that TLC took down the Miami Ink Billboard with Ami on it, and replaced it with an L.A. Ink board with the better looking (IMO) Ami. Could this just be TLC media spin for the press. It's from the New York Post.....
Tomorrow, and hopefully Sunday I will be attending the California Speedway races writing about them both after my return, from a new fan perspective. I am quite excited, and know before I can enter the Speedway I will have to pick my favorite driver so I can buy myself a T-shirt and other swag. Right now its between Junior and Tony Stewart. It is hot in Fontana, real hot, and my NASCAR guru's are telling me that this is really going to affect both races. I can't wait.
