Hi NSA! How The Hell Are Ya?

[COMMENT]Conspiracies. I was a big [Art Bell] fan back in the day. I love listening to [Richard C. Hoagland] and people talking HAARP and Area 51 and UFO's. I spend many hours of a work shift (when I worked graveyard for 5 years) listening to that show. Art did such a compelling show, his birthday was this week. But I didn't necessarily buy into all of it or any of it. There were some things that sounded plausible and even believable. I don't really listen to Coast to Coast that much anymore. I work days now. Occasionally I'll hear a half hour here or there. But now with all these government scandals I'm reconsidering a little. Maybe a lot of this secret government stuff is true, who knows. Verizon was in my neighborhood this week installing fiber cable. Gee I just want to order Fios right now! The NSA thing bothers me. I don't think government should be doing this at all. It's not in the pervue of the constitution. But I will go on with my life and keep my webcam and mic covered with tape, but it will not hinder my presents on the web..........raspberry!

[RADIO]A lot of great commentary Thursday morning with many hosts about the death of [James Gandolfini]. [Brian Whitman] played some great clips from the Soprano's. [Doug McIntyre] talked about what a complete anti-hero he was. He was the worst person, a horrible person, but you ended up rooting for him. I saw every episode of this show, more than once. HBO was huge back (1999-2007) then and it was an event every Sunday, along with the show Six Feet Under. I heard [Larry Elder] say that he had died on his show around 4pm.... and was stunned. Only 51, with a wife and children. Very sad and he will be hugely missed.

I've never heard this story, wow. The man who first put [Johnny Carson] in front of a microphone is being remembered, [Ken Greenwood]

Heard part of this interview on Coast to Coast last night with US Customs undercover operation Special Agent [Robert Mazur] who said that large banks transport large amounts of cash without any oversight. Lots of audio on his website.

KABC's [John Phillips] doing a remote in Hollywood today, running his own board apparently. Go buy a cheeseburger John, put some meat on those bones.

[QUOTE]"The Soprano's was my favorite show of all time, I actually cried when I heard about the death of [James Gandolfini]" - [Brian Whitman]

[TECH]Lots of great stuff from listening to TWIG this week with [Leo Laporte], [Gina Trapanti] and [Jeff Jarvis]. Jeff was Skype-ing from Germany. This guy never stops traveling.

Leo threw this out talking about the NSA snooping and how much data they are collecting: A Zetabyte is 1 billion Terabytes. I have a 2 Terabyte drive on my table here not even a 1/4 of it is filled and I have 25,000 hi res photos on it.

[PODCASTS]'The Watchers' Have Had Their Eyes On Us For Years
The revelations about secret National Security Agency programs, leaked by [Edward Snowden] earlier this month, have stirred great controversy, but this type of surveillance is not entirely new, according to journalist Shane Harris on Fresh Air.

[SEEN ON THE ROAD] - The Fire Truck that puts out Pizza - Company 77 was born in the summer of 2008 at Pizzetta a groovy little pizza shop in the seaport town of Mystic, Connecticut. I saw a blonde woman driving this near Disneyland at around 9pm this week. Now they are here in the 949. Really cool website.

[HEARD THIS]Over and over...Tony V has moved to Venice and wants to run for Governor......who cares!
