After almost twenty years I have to say goodbye to:

Genii magazine.

Magic magazine.


I also have to say so long to my subscription to Sirius satellite radio.


I just can’t afford these perks no more. So for the time being…

I know what you mean. 'Dining out' for us has changed from dinner at Chevy's to lunch at Qdoba.

Your on the wrong coast. Saturday Disneyland was packed to the doors with paying customers (Annual Pass holders were blocked out) and at the end of the day, the shelves were BARE in most of the stores. The REAL reality is inside 'the Berm' at DL Resort So Cal.

Come on out!

Since XM and Sirius merged they've cut back formats and started talking all over the specialty channels -in my opinion, you're not missing bloody much by giving them the boot. I've got it at work and sucks as hard as commercial radio now...

Plus (at least on the Howard Stern show) all they run are commercials for porn, cheating on your other half, *** enlargement, hock-shops (Now called "cash for gold") and B.S. diet schemes.

I've been a Howard fan since 1986. Got all his TV shows on tape, got his books, saw the movie, waited in line in a snow storm to have him sign one of his books and I was even on the show one very memorable time.

I feel the hay day is over. Long gone are the Sam Kinnison days, the DJ battles, and the conquering of cities. Now, it's just the wack pack and Eric the angry midget.

I don't listen to the other channels. I tried to listen to the comedy stations but it's worse than top 40 radio. The same comedians and routines over and over and over...

I'll miss Howard and the gang, but it's time to move on.

AMEN to that!! Fortunately for me, 2009 actually started on an up note. Instead of just barely scraping by on substitute teacher pay (and a lot of help from my friends), I am now working in my newly chosen profession making a decent wage again.
The only stupid question is the one not asked.

Justin, you have a job? I thought your thing was riding a bike around New York City, which isn't real popular when it is eight degrees I would think. As one who actually lost a job of over two decades, property, and a few hundred thousand dollars I'm a bit insulted that a fellow who can't find bike riders in January is having it tough and complaining about it. Why not suppliment your income by giving swimming tours of the Hudson River?

Howard 100 is all I've got to keep me entertained. Even though all the Eric the Actor nonsense gets annoying sometimes, I've got to hold on to that. I've cancelled a lot of my comicbook subscriptions, got a different cell phone plan and borrow someones wireless internet signal, but I couldn't part with my Sirius.

There's a bright side. I have scads of both magazines you mentioned, and the good news is that the material in them never grows old. In fact, it renews itself magically at least every decade. Genii from decades ago still has treasures undreamed of waiting to be mined!

In fact, look at it this way. Want to be way ahead of everyone else with new, never before seen effects? Just pull out a Genii and perfect a gem from twenty years ago, and you will be so far ahead of your time it's not even funny!
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

Wow, you're on a roll...lol


Yes I do have a job...I'm a magician and I perform regularly in hospitals and private events.

I am also deversified. I DO give bicycle tours of NYC - even in 8 degree weather. As long as it ain't raining or very windy, we go. However, and I told you this before, if you don't want to go by bike, we'll go what ever way you want to. Although, we'll still wear the spandex!

And YES, it's time for a new bike.


Swimming tours of the Hudson? I like that idea, I wonder if I'll need a license? thanks!

American Chopper? Never saw it sorry.

'Shrunken Ned' however is more my style guru...he's a rather large cantelope sized Shrunken Head at a Disneyland store that when you put in 50 cents he tells your very funny fortune and you get a card with funny stuff on it. All I'm missing is the Monicle. Also there is a King in one of the Disney features (Cinderella?) and a certain British Colonel in the film Three Feathers, (C. Aubrey Smith?) that I believe Shrunken Ned was designed after...but American Choppers...nah...I'll look him up though.

edit: Holy crap...you're right...could be a brother I guess. Beautiful bikes! He looks more like my other Brother Vinny the card father though...or Kondini with hair. Smile

Don't watch the show....it is about a psuedo tough guy and his spoiled and wealthy children with all pretending to be bikers. They do put out a nice product.

You work at hospitals and private events Justin? Be proud, my grandfather was a custodian as well.

You can swim in the Hudson? I thought tourists just walked across it.

Seriously, we've cut back too- my wife cancelled our HBO service when we realized we never really watched it, and a netflix account was cheaper.
