I’m Asking For Your Help

I am going to preface this post by asking you all in advance to rec/like/share this post. If you don’t feel like reading this whole thing, you can at least do me that favor.

Here is something I firmly believe. While it is always great to be able to do things on your own, there comes a time when you should not be ashamed to ask for a little help. We all need a helping hand from time to time. Whether it be from family, or friends, or even sometimes a stranger on the street. We are only human after all.

Before you run away thinking I am asking you guys to pay up on those spare kidneys you promised me, let me get to the point of this entry.

I recently started an internet radio show on blogtalkradio.com. So far, it has gotten off to a pretty decent start. I have some regular listeners, and I have begun to slowly network with other hosts. That being said, I have a real long way to go before I can say it is a success. I know sometimes I post videos or audio links and many of you just ignore them. That’s cool. I completely understand. If it isn’t too much trouble though, do you guys mind paying a little attention this time around?

I am really putting my heart and soul into this show. I am committing to doing it live every Thursday at 10 PM ET, and it is an hour each time. Let me just tell you all, this is not easy. It takes preparation and planning each and every week. I believe the show is getting better with each passing week, and with added participation it could really take off. I am looking for guests, callers, listeners, followers, or just people to help pass the word along. If you guys ever enjoyed any of my writing or any of my stand-up, I urge you to give the show a chance. Worst case scenario you can come back and tell me it sucked. I am a big boy. I can take it.

So here is the info in a nutshell.

So It’s Valentine’s Day… Now What?

We’ve hit the halfway mark on the shortest month of the year. What does that mean? First off, it means that Black History month is pretty much over before anyone noticed it was here. Second of all, it means that Valentine’s Day is here once again. I get real excited whenever this time of year comes around, cause I know my woman doesn’t give two craps about this “holiday”. I brag about it all week long. That is what February the 14th means to me.

Not everyone shares my same apathy toward this day. I know there are some hopeless romantics out there who genuinely enjoy this day. There are also, of course, those greedy shallow people who just enjoy an excuse to shake some poor sucker down for whatever they can get. To each his/her own, I suppose.

In any case, I hope you are dealing with your VD the best way you know how. Enjoy your VD, or do your best ignoring it. Either way, you should probably call your doctor if your VD becomes too much of a problem.

I’ll leave you with a little bit of Valentine’s Day listening material:

Love/Lust is in the Air

With the most ridiculous holiday of the year right around the corner, I am going to give you all some pointers on how to deal with VD (Valentine’s Day). Let’s see if my guests agree or call me a chauvenist pig.


Vanedave Radio Tonight at 9 PM

The Egyptian Revolution has got me thinking. Are we watching our future unfold on a smaller scale? Join me tonight and lets tk about it.


Upcoming Episodes


Date / Time: 2/1/2011 9:00 PM

Category: Current Events

Call-in Number: (858) 815-2314

Show # 2 will be a bit more serious than the first. As I watch the Egyptian Revolution take form, I wonder if an American Revolution can be too far behind. Are Americans too complacent? Is revolution just an idea to us? What would it take for our people to become fed up and rise up? Let’s talk about it.

Use the episode link or the call-in number to listen. Tonight’s episode has been moved to 9 PM to accomodate all you old people out there. No excuses now!
