Whoa! Where the hell am I?
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:01pm Rich in Washington:

I still can't get used to that! Totally dizzy now.

You just quit smoking and now you end up in Vegas surrounded by smoke!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:02pm Don-O:

Hurr Hurr Hurr....;..
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:02pm Mr Fab:

Standing ovation (at my desk) for Otis' show!

Now a non-'Xanadu' obsession that i share w/Don-O: vintage Vegas.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:03pm Mr Fab:

The album is called "The Many Moods of Mike Hudson." He also covers "Proud Mary."
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:04pm spacebrother:

Hey Don-O!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:04pm Martinibomb:

Hi Don-O! I'll be listening to the show but have to do house work.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:05pm Don-O:

BO! right back ya, Space and Mbomb!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:06pm Otis Fodder:

This is so perfect, I'm taking my tablet in the kitchen to cook dinner while I take a scenic tour of Vegas... at the SAME TIME!!!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I am still in the armchair but am now sitting on the crochet throw cos I got overheated :-)
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:08pm spacebrother:

I actually got married in Vegas once.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Really? What happened??
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:11pm Mr Fab:

Hey, I had an Elvis impersonator wedding in Vegas. And we're still together 20 years later!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:12pm spacebrother:

Mine lasted 10 years. We drove all night from L.A.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:13pm spacebrother:

Maybe we should have gone to the Elvis place!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

What made you both opt for Vegas? (Which sounds like so fun to me to be honest)
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:14pm Otis Fodder:

Loved that 7" of sights and sounds. Listening here, about to make spaghetti and meatballs with a side o' crap.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:17pm Don-O:

My first Vegas trip started off with my mom and her boyfriend thinking that it would take 8 hours to go to Vegas from LA. We arrived SO early, that we had to sleep/wait it out in the lobby of the Tropicana until our room as ready....3 hours later. One of many lessons learned that trip.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:18pm Don-O:

Yea, that sound of the slot machines sounds like nails in a tumbler. Authentic!!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:18pm spacebrother:

Desperation. We were impulsive. We'd been together a year or so. I waited at her front door until she got home and asked if she would marry me. We took off immediately. Don't know if that was a smart thing to do, but it was a (mostly) fun 10 years.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:18pm Mr Fab:

The Graceland Chapel, still in business.

Why get married there? Neon lights, booze, gambling, lounge performers, Elvis impersonators, people throwing their life savings away...What better way to cement a relationship than with everything we hold dear?
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:19pm spacebrother:

This is a slice of Vegas I've never experienced. Nice work, Don.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:19pm Mr Fab:

That's a great story Greg
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:19pm Don-O:

I would not be surprise if they build a chapel in the middle of Fremont St. Experience.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:19pm Otis Fodder:

c'mon 666... what a sample!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:19pm spacebrother:

Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

See, I got married in a registry office and it lasted barely 4 years so I think you both had the right idea! :-)
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:20pm spacebrother:

Yours too!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:21pm Don-O:

Thanks SpaceB. It's version years before the corporate takeover.....and get me started on THAT current ordeal!!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:22pm spacebrother:

I've got a few friends in Vegas. One is actually a local news anchor.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:23pm Don-O:

BTW, the casino sound you hear in the background from from the Friends Forever OST.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:23pm Rich in Washington:

my first marriage was going to be a simple courthouse affair, but some flakey chapel owner managed to bamboozle my fiancee into booking there while she was at the courthouse getting paperwork.
So we have this tiny wedding in the basement of some old office building. My dad was there, looked around and said 'this used to be the city coroner's office in the 50s'.
That marriage lasted four years.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:24pm Mr Fab:

Yeah, I started going to Vegas in the waning days of the Rat Pack era. Used to see cats like Sam Butera in the lounges, which scarcely exist nowadays. Don't have much use for the place anymore.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:26pm spacebrother:

Last good show I saw there was Wayne Newton about 10 years ago, I think.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:27pm Mr Fab:

yeah, we saw Wayne! He ran around the room hugging the ladies. Mrs Fab said he was sweaty.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:27pm Don-O:

I remember seeing a video of Sam Butera from the early 80's where he was performing at the Trop. There's video excerpts from a planned doc called Appearing Nightly from the early 90's that I FREAKIN' wish that guy would finish.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:28pm spacebrother:

He played his banjo and had a sore throat. Still good, though. I mean it was WAYNE.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Loving the journey of this week's show! Excellent stuff :-)
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:35pm Don-O:

I had to sneak SOME Sinatra in here!
  Fri. 11/9/18 6:36pm paulshrug:

"Wedding Vows in Vegas"! Love Was (Not Was)'s perverse policy on cameo appearances.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:37pm Don-O:

Was (Not Was) is one of the VERY few bands that made good sense to me from the 80's.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:38pm spacebrother:

This is like warm, hallucinatory syrup.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:38pm Don-O:

Them and Weird Al, Swing Out Sister and Negativland....
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:39pm spacebrother:

I thought that was Mojo Nixon!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:46pm Don-O:

Question to everybody: Is Fremont Street Experience better than Bourbon Street in New Orleans?
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:48pm spacebrother:

Yes. It's not covered in puke.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:51pm Don-O:

I ask this as I usually keep hearing some LV Chamber O' Commerce proudly comparing the two with pride. I've been to both and...well, 'better' is NOT the opritive (sic) word to use here.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:55pm spacebrother:

It's a complicated question.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:55pm Don-O:

Which smell pleases you?
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:56pm spacebrother:

The absence of puke.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Vanilla. Jasmine. Gardenias. Cinnamon.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:56pm Mr Fab:

Downtown Vegas is closer to old-school Vegas. I hear that some of the casinos still have slot machines that don't take paper tickets, but still take coins for that ching-ching-ching sound.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:56pm grantbob:

Thanks Don-O. Great show!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Which sounds like anew fragrance "Kitchen Hippie" :-)
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:57pm Mr Fab:

Another fabulous Friday. thanks everyone, lovin it all.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Great stuff!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:58pm Otis Fodder:

Making dinner in Vegas here, but ran back from the kitchen to the office to say thanks Don-O for the travel voyage!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:58pm Don-O:

El Cortez is one of the very few who still take coins for the slots.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:58pm spacebrother:

Liked this sound portrait episode!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:59pm Don-O:

Thanks to everyone for putting up with this mess. C-yall next week!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:59pm Don-O:

BTW, Vegas set two will be for early next year.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:59pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Night all! :-)
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 6:59pm Mr Fab:

And come back Monday for Spacebrothers "Stop Hitting Yourself"!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 7:00pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks, Don-O! See everybody later and hope to join you all real soon!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 7:00pm Don-O:

U-beat, Fab!!
