Yes Enrico, and I'm sure THQ never had an iota of input from McMahon concerning the game, much less reviewed the tapes of the matches they were supposed to replicate for it. If this is indicative of the WWE head's quality control, it's no wonder the industry is dying on the vine. Get your nose out of your hero's posterior and realize Mr. Schuster has a point.
Yes, because Vince McMahon made this game, and not THQ Games.....in case it's unclear, I'm being sarcastic. :/
They did not write the game, THQ did. Sorry to break it to you, but you are infact guilty of the same transgression you're calling the WWE out on.
A note: if you're going to pretend to be two different people, at least do it from two different IP addresses.
Inside Tucson Business is biased, full of squawking sensational columns disguised as fact, zero serious journalism. Sure the weekly has some of those elements but a good deal of real investigative reporting. Impossible to respect anyone associated with that piece of ITB garbage.
Not a fan of Dan myself. Oh well it's not my paper and I don't have to read it either.
Dan Gibson! Cool! :)
It is so wrong that there is not one comment above about the loss to Tucson of the only WORTHWHILe commercial radio programming of the former KJLL, no more: Stephanie Miller, Ed Schultz and Thom Hartmann. Fact-checkable information and intelligent opinions. However, oldest postings at the top of a long column of comments pretty much guarantees that no one who even cares will see this one.
Pretty bland this week.
I just spent 6 months in Palm Springs. I go there off and on because it's just so amazingly gorgeous, CLEAN, free of graffitti, slow-paced, and there are unlimited things to see and do (the likes of Coachella Valley Preserve, among them, which are ignored by locals) in the desert, mountains, oases, and on and on. (A poolside, fully furnished condo can be had in the summer off season for $600/month, all utilities included, BTW). It's also the most weirded-out place I've ever been to. MUCH more so than Tucson, in fact. If not for the transient SoCal moneyed folks, it would not even exist, for sure. As far as the gay realm? It's estimated that half of the 40,000 people in Palm Springs are gay. However, every one of the gay men I met told me the same thing: "It's impossible to meet a man here!". The straights and gays have limited interaction, although I never noticed any inkling of any intolerance whatsoever. The article is correct- there is not a single noteworthy news source in that valley. Mostly, small rags written by bored wealthy women for something to do? The Daily Sun is a waste of paper. I'm looking forward to this new source of information, because 'nothing' in Palm Springs is what it appears to be...
Jimmy, you've done a great job of giving credence to a news product that for many years was considered , and to some I guess still is, a commie rag. Your gift is to assemble a great team and just put the facts out there and let the chips fall where they may. I've been around Tucson for a lot of years and read the weekly now more than ever. I skip the more salacious parts but do log on every week to get the best in local political happenings and always a good story on something no other paper or outlet thinks to cover. I look forward to the restaurant updates/reviews and of course fresh, independent opinion from some smart individuals who know the area and what's REALLY going on and so much more. It takes a great editor to accomplish all that and you will be missed. Best of luck in your new venture and thank you!
I don't know if I'd call Julie Brinks a "popular" general manager... at least not among the TV employees.
Jimmy; Well done. Thanks
Before ya go, can you please get rid of the "Red Meat" strip.
Please. It's not funny, clever, or worth the ink.
Sad day for Tucson and us Weekly-ites.
But - go forth and do great things, young man and thanks for the gret job that you've done here.
I'm on the fringes of doing something very similar - so - let's meet for cheladas - even if its thru some cosmic connection.
Rock on, Jimmy.
I wish they would return calls.
1330 would be fun and a moneymaker.
If anyone knows how to reach the owner directly - save me a hassle and I'll buy you a chelada.
1330 KJLL switching to the Xmas tunes should reduce their royalty fees as quite a few I heard are likely public domain tunes with little to no royalty due.
In fact, for a while Sunday morning I wondered if they moved a chintzy Farfisa organ into their studio and somebody got free reign on it for ~half an hour; just instrumental Xmas based tunes.
Still, their electricity bill has to be high.
I still don't get 1330. It hasn't aired a commercial or a PSA for a month and half! How does it stay on the air?
My request for the KWFM holiday playlist has to include Weird Al's "Christmas At Ground Zero"-fun, funny and oh-so-appropriate.
The NPR outlet at 89.1 will have election news all evening, too. Just in case you're interested in the appearance of balance.
If I had a sword, now might be the time I would consider falling on it. I'm astounded I did that.
Someone should call the folks at ASCAP and inquire about the station paying royalties.
Anyway, who gives a shit about radio and their listener parties? The demographic of those listener parties will be 65+. Hell, maybe even 75+ at some of them. Hope the venues are ADA compliant and they have the volume on the speakers cranked up.
