We can has famous now....

We initially wanted to keep this little secret to ourselves. But now that it's gone public with a wide spread release in the theaters just last night, I guess it won't be too long before everyone knows about what's going on. So I guess it's pretty safe to say the jig is up as it were.

Me and the boys were asked to do something kind of cool. Not sure how it all came together honestly, but come together it did!

We were given the chance to take part in a totally original movie with big name producers and directors and stuff. Very cool indeed!

Here's the trailer.

We're hoping to give that Potter kid a real run for his money and we hope you enjoy watching it, every bit as much as we did making it.

It's all happening so fast now though, as this seems to have spawned so many other options for each of us. I just accepted the role in a classic re-make where for the first time ever, this kid gets to be the bad guy! Super excited about this one!

The Doc also took on a much darker roll than normal, in this chilling thriller.

When he insisted to the producers that I was the only one who could pull off the role in the sequel well, I was just delighted.

That fun little role got me the prize for best supported azztor and almost had me considering nothing but the Horror genre for a while. The offers to zombie it up on film were coming in fast and furious.

I decided to take a chance on a comedy bit instead though. The chance to not only work with one of the best in the business, but to also broaden my scope as an artist, was just too much for me to pass up.

Although not as popular with the kids as I first anticipated, that little flick ended up changing my professional direction in a huge way.

When the phone rang and I heard the voice, I was sure it was some type of joke. I figured I might as well just go along for the ride. Once I realized he was quite serious, I almost fell of my bar stool.

Me the new Bond. Holy crap!

I'm going to try and not let that go to my head. I want to keep it as real and honest as I can, so that I can always remember my roots and where I started. On that note, I'm getting back together with the boys this Summer again. We're working on two pretty cool projects together and hopefully, you'll be as excited about them both as we are.

The first is a fun and funky little Ghost story.

I have no idea how these creative writers, keep coming up with new and fresh ideas! So talented.

The second one we're doing is a Doc original. This is his first attempt at a screenplay and besides playing the starring role, he'll also be directing and producing the movie.

Looks like a good one to me!

I wasn't really going to let this cat out of the bag just yet, but with all the hype and excitement about me and the boys getting on so well of late, I think I can let one last little secret of my own slip out to the masses.

I wrote a little something original myself last Winter and by all accounts right now, it looks like this little project is going to be a go. WoooOOOoooT!!!

This kid is going to write, direct and co-star in his very own movie folks!

Picking a headliner to play the lead roll was simple. I basically wrote the part for the man and I know he's going to do one hell of a job with the part.

My sincerest thanks for dropping by....


Friends run goot in the WSoP....

Being the kid I am, I love to spread good news around whenever I can. Today's good stuff is brought to you by none other than, The World Series of Poker.

First off, my man Amir did some walkin' to go with his talkin' in the Main Event. Amir Lehavot qualified via an on-line event at PokerStars and turned that seat into a 226th. place finish in the main event, good for $32,963. After being the day 2B chip leader in the event, Amir was looking pretty good to cash in the Main Event.

I followed Amir's progress via Twitter, Al, Pauly, Otis and just about every other media source available, all in the hopes that the support would help him run uber-deep into the series. I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of my friend and how I hope this result is just what he needed, to get PokerWit up and running as it should.

Congrats Amir! Well done, NH and VGG Sir!

If you're not familiar with Amir's site, I suggest you head over and check it out.

Amir has loaded up lots of hands he played in this years Main Event and I know one thing for almost certain, it's probably as close as this kid is ever going to come to playing in the WSoP Main Event.

For the record, I push the PokerWit site out of nothing but good will. I want to become a better NLHE player and I see what Amir is doing at PokerWit, as a means to that end. At PokerWit, you can re-play hands that Amir played in the WSoP. You can see the relevant information available and make a selection on how you would act, when it's your turn to do so.

There's the comments section that let's you not only see how others played the same hand, but also allows everyone to put down in writing, what the thought behind the play really was.

There's also a 'friends' section,

that allows you to track their progress through the hands as well. That way you can see who played the hands like a genious, and who just donked away all their chips.

Try it out or don't, the decision is totally yours.

Oh and then there's this OTHER news out of Vegas too! It seems some poker dorks went and finished first overall in the Dream Team Poker III series. Ho-Hum, just another $33K leaving town with a few friends. Seriously though, huge congrats to Pauly, LJ and Michalski

A lap around Lake Ontario....

Yep! That's exactly what happened this past weekend.

What a trip!

Peb's and I loaded up a change of clothes and a map and headed down into NY State for a three day weekend. We were about as un-plugged as it could get for the two of us, as we were carrying only a turned off cell phone just in case of a problem.

There were dial-a-shots missed and for that, I'm very sorry. Your thoughts from Okie-Vegas and Vegas were much appreciated indeed, but I just needed a little break to get away. A re-charging if you will. And the good news is, it seems to have worked.

After driving straight down Thursday after work, Peb's and I played a local Golf course just outside Oswego NY on the Friday. The course looked totally harmless and helpless, as the scorecard showed no real water hazards or bunkers. I was also amazed at how straight away the entire course looked. I've golfed for too long at far too many different courses, to know that something had to be up with this place. As I stood on the first tee I told Peb's, "these greens are going to be murder!"

I was right!

To defend itself against the golfer trying to attack it's simple yardage and straightaway play, this course had postage stamp sized greens. Greens that also had more curves and undulations running in every which way, than even the best of the girls of the afternoon shift. Oh and as you can see by the picture above, the landing areas where one may 'miss' a green by a tick, we're pretty damn penalizing as well.

This was one of the courses that was made up from that "old school" design. It was awesome!

There is of course a sound strategy that can help you not only get through a course like this, but actually may help you enjoy the round more and quite possibly, improve your score.

As you can see,

I started work on that strategy almost immediately!

The day ended with this little tap-in Birdie on the 208 YD PAR 3 finishing hole.

The previous foursome said, "it lipped all the way around and then came back out on you." Too bad! It would've been nice to have made my third hole in one, an International affair!

I'm no CHEF-BOY-R-EH when it comes to food porn, but I just had to take a quick shot of lunch that day for him.

I kid you not. The single best bowl of Clam Chowder, that this kid has ever had in his life. The freshness of the ingredients combined with an exotic array of unusual spices for a chowder, made this un-fucking-believably delectable. Oh and the Mushroom and Broccoli Parmesan, was kinda' OK too. Add the incredible view of the Oswego River and the perfectly chilled Yuengling on tap to the frey, and you have a very, very happy Bam-Bam.

That night we strolled around the show and shine held at the track for some pretty classic American Muscle cars. One that really caught my eye, was the 1961 Chrysler 300G. One of approximately 100 or so intact, remaining in the world. The world may love those HEMI's but, that 375 horsepower "wedge," was an awful lot of motor for a car in 1961.

After the car show, we headed out back to the dirt track of Oswego. There we saw some amazing action. Picture if you will, 6 and 7 year old kids on Go-Karts with 80cc. four stroke bike engines. They were tearing up the dirt oval and it was a hoot to watch! Here's four of them trying to get into the feature race at the end of the night.

Them little buggers can fly!

Saturday was spent getting together with friends I haven't seen in over twenty years in some cases. The family bond of Oswego Speedway, apparently has no statute of limitations. Neither did the flow of alcohol it seems either! Great times!

Saturday night the Winged Supermodifieds took to the track for a show that can only be called breathtaking and spectacular. The pole was won with a lap of 15.021 seconds around the 5/8 of a mile oval. You straight line, 7 second 1/4 dragster types, should be able to appreciate how fast these guys are running, based on that tidbit of information. 36 drivers and their crews put on an unbelievable show to a crowd that was only ever using the edge of the seat, that they'd previously paid in full for.

That's 'Schultzy' the eventual winner in the #7 car. The racing was that close the entire night long. Just incredible!

Then Sunday Peb's and I toured around the East end of Lake Ontario, as a casual route to get us home. We crossed at what IMHO is the most beautiful portion of the World's longest un-defended border and having seen that once again,

it really got the juices flowing for our Eastern Seaboard ten day trip coming up, at the beginning of August. I just can't wait.

My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
