Another 15 Seconds: Restonian on the Radio

images.jpegSome filthy hobo masquerading as "Restonian the Blogger" was on NPR earlier, stone cold talkin' about blogging and blizzards and whatnot. The real shocker? We were compelled by the elitist mainstream media and their pesky "questions" to say nice things about both the RA and our commenters. (Okay, so we said one semi-nice thing about the RA, but close enough!)

The exciting "pod cast" is worth listening to on your fancy "pod casting" machine, if only to hear Kojo Nnamdi read an entry from this filthy "web log" in his deep, mellifluous voice. It almost made it sound classy!

Unfortunately, at the end of the call we didn't know the "phrase that pays" and did not win the Van Halen tickets and party pack, the end.

    Congratulations -- but you should have used one of those voice scramblers to mask your voice. You do realize, don't you, that the RA will be borrowing voice analysis and recognition software from the National Security Agency to track you down? Next time you go to the RA to pick up your pool passes, better inhale deeply from a helium balloon beforehand!

  2. Helarious - I actually caught the very beginning of the show when I was heading to Wholefoods for lunch today, but they didn't mention you at that point. Would you mind posting the times that your "segment" was on so that I don't have to listen to the whole show, or were you on for most of it?

  3. Time to update the copyright notice at the bottom Restonian! Otherwise you may well be blogging in 2008 about 2010! :)

  4. dvdmon -- it was the first 35-40 minutes of the linked segment.

    Peasant -- who's to say I wasn't using a voice scrambler?

  5. Good segment. I didn't hear a single reference to mauve, Targetville, or the Macaroni Grill, though (admittedly, I didn't listen to the entire thing).
