Huckleberries Online

Inside Huckleberries — 12/8/06

*Cis wonders if OrangeTV would be up to the task of doing a restaurant review of Opaque on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip were cusstomers dine in total darkness here.

*Mayor Clay Larkin called HBO a few minutes ago to say he’s bummed about Dick Haugen’s ouster from KVNI by the KXLY Brain Trust — and that he doesn’t plan to continue his weekly radio show at the local station until KXLY fixes the problem.

*Cis offered some kind remarks re: how far this blog has come in the last three years (as of mid-February) and this thought from Barbara J. Winters: “When you come to the edge of all the light you know, and you are about to step off in the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly”

*The Bodie Specter, the blog written by our good friend Pickaxe Pete, has been chosen as a finalist in the 2006 Weblog Awards. The catagory it’s listed under is the Best of the Top 5001 - 6750 Blogs for the Truth Laid Bear ecosystem. (where it’s currently rated at # 6679). Pete writes to HBO: “I would appreciate it if you went to their website and voted for The Bodie Specter.” You can check out Pete’s blog and get to the voting site by clicking here.

*Huckleberries hears … that one of the KHQers dropped an F-bomb on the air last night during the 5 o’clock broadcast — and opened the 6 p.m. broadcast by ap-hollow-gizing for it. Anyone hear it?

*A Berry Picker writes: Met some people that do not like you … well, NOW they don’t like me either for standing by you. Oh well … you and your Huckleberries are worth it. I have learned one thing living in this country.. everybody is so touchy … I read and re read you… I love what I see and read. So what? Sorry. No names … and not worth it. Keep up the good work friend … it pisses the enemy.
