With 5,000 people moving here each month, somebody had to spill the beans!

September 22, 2008

Not only is the Canadian dollar growing stronger by the week, but the Friends of the LiLV Podcast page has grown by 3.57% with the addition of fellow podcasters Tim and Nanette.  Welcome to the page, eh?

(I wonder if they’ll be joining us for our Halloween MeetUp?)

Okay okay. . .good thing you don’t have to be smart to run your own business.  The photo said Canada which threw me. . .truth is, Tim and Nanette are from Atlanta, GA. 

That uses up yesterday’s mistake quota.  Now, on to today!!!

scaryblog By popular demand, we’ve decided to organize our second LiLV Listener Meetup for Saturday, October 11, 2008.  Now this isn’t going to be just some simple, sit-around-and-drink meetup. . .no, no, no. . .we’ve already rode that pony.  Instead, it’s going to be three-Three-THREE things in one:

  1. Sit around and drink (a bit, okay okay, why ruin a good thing)

  2. Visit “The Asylum”, reportedly a VERY scary haunted house in Summerlin

  3. Eat, Drink and be Scary Merry at a dining/drinking establishment to be named later

If you’re wondering about item #2, here’s the scoop:  one of our listener’s favorite episodes continues to be the Hotel Fear show, which primarily features Melissa screaming like a banshee for 20+ minutes.  (The woman has pipes.)  A week or so ago, I received an email, which lead to a phone call with the folks who run Hotel Fear and The Asylum. 

Of course, I expected they wanted to hire Melissa as a professional screamer. 

But no, that wasn’t it.  Instead, to my surprise, they told me that they loved the show so much that they wanted to offer us 10 tickets to experience The Asylum, at no charge

Free stuff?  I love free stuff.  And so understandably, I accepted their offer.

As I type this, four of those tickets are already spoken for.  If you’d like to be one of the other six victims to join us as we go Screaming Through Summerlin, and you know your calendar is open for such fun, be one of the first six people to email me at lilvscreamer@livinginlv.com and I’ll put you on the free-ticket list.  (Others are welcomed to join us of course, but I can only comped the first six folks.)

Remember, you want to make sure you’re available on OCTOBER 11, 2008 before requesting the free ticket. 

We’ll finalize the time in another post but I’m guessing we’ll first meet around 6PM(ish) for drinks and enter The Asylum at 7:30PM(ish).

One final thing–we will be recording our experience for a LiLV podcast so if you don’t want your friends to know you’re a screamer (Mark G?), you may not want to get tickets. . .but we’d love to have you join us for drinks and dinner!

I’ve had some LiLV listeners ask me about my session at the 2008 New Media Expo, which took place a couple weeks ago.  It went very well–received a lot of nice comments after the session and came home to a large number of email “thanks” as well.  I thought I’d share a bit of a video that was taken during the session with those LiLV listeners who are into such things (and are reading this on our website).  Below is a video clip of the first few minutes of the session. . .(do you guys recognize that music in the beginning?)
