PadCast #23: Magic





PadCast #23_ Magic

Before I begin… no, I’m not joining a cult or getting all “Dungeons and Dragons” on you. I just couldn’t think of a unifying theme for today’s show, and the first thing I saw on iTunes was “Magic to Do” from Pippin and “Magic” by Olivia Newton-John. So that’s the show’s title explained. 🙂

That aside, today’s show is dedicated to (more) apples and apple pie, and a very special segment– my review of  “The Pirate Queen.”

I promised you a review, and here it is… and you have to listen to the show to find out how I liked it. 🙂 Sneaky eh? 🙂

Drop me a line and let me know what you think.. did you see it? Do you agree with my statements? Or will you just wait til the thing opens on Broadway to find out how you like it? Share!!

Have a great weekend everyone. I’m off to the north!

PadCast #21: The Bridge

PadCast #21_ The Bridge

And every one of us has to face that day;
Do you cross the bridge, or do you fade away?
And every one of us that ever came to play
Has to cross the bridge or fade away….

Life throws crossroads and bridges at us all the time.  Sometimes we make the wrong choices… and sometimes we make the right choices.  Isn’t that what life is all about?

Today’s PadCast is inspired by the newest song by Elton John, “The Bridge” from his newest album “The Captain and The Kid” – featured in today’s show.

On today’s show, I talk about this song and how it has affected me as it relates to things that have happened in my life in the last few months.

EXCLUSIVE! I also give an update on the new guy I met yesterday.  Only you PadCast listeners get the latest scoop!  So you’d better listen if you want to find out what’s new in that story. 🙂

Bribery is a good thing, isn’t it? 😉

PadCast #19: Crazy

PadCast #19_ Crazy

Tom Cruise is crazy.  Osama bin Laden is Nuts.  Whitney Houston is a purple banana.

Let’s put ’em in the truck.

OK OK … I’m trying too hard to replicate the lyrics of Prince’s famous song “Let’s Go Crazy.”  But it’s still true.

Crazy people are out there… and some of them are getting their due.  Watch for my rant on Tom Cruise tomorrow for more good stuff about that whacko.

I’m heading to Saugatuck this weekend.  If you’ll be camping at CampIt, let me know!

Watch for a special guest coming soon… as soon as I convince him that he has nothing to be afraid of. 😉  He knows who he is. 😀

It’s late so I need to go to bed.  Comment, people!

PadCast #18: Higher Ground

PadCast #18_ Higher Ground

Wow!  I think this is three PadCasts in one month.  What’s wrong with me?

Well… I’ve been working a lot on getting the PadCast to the “next level” as they say… and with the help of a fellow podcaster named JayT, I’ve fixed things and gotten things back on track.  I met JayT this past weekend at the Gay Bloggers Chicago event and he’s a great guy! Please visit JayT, and check out his shows!

So… higher ground.  That’s where I’m trying to head with my life.  That’s where I’m heading with all of my situations in life.  And it’s also where I’m heading with the Pad and the PadCasts.  And with the support of great people like JayT, Scott-O-Rama and all of you out there who read, listen, and support me… I’m heading there.
