Guest-Hosting on RundgrenRadio.com

Yeah, if you're reading this on or before January 29th, that stupid voice on the RundgrenRadio show that auto-starts when you load this blog, is moi.

I was bestowed with the honor (or was it dishonor?) of guest-hosting for my little bro Dougie Doug last Wednesday night. I interviewed Atom Ellis, the bassist who filled-in for Kasim Sulton during the New Cars tours in 2006-2007. That's him above. Cute, huh ladies?

Atom is a very quick wit, but was a real sweetheart as he took it easy on me, knowing I was a newbie (duh - it was so obvious) at the online radio game. Thank you, Atom.

Of course, if you give it a listen you'll be intrigued by Mr. Ellis. I know I was. He's had a pretty cool musical history and I was glad I had done my homework as he's been all over the place. He's played in some groovy bands. One of his bands was named Psychefunkapus. (Does anyone else want to call that Snuffaluffagus?) He's even played with Link Wray. How cool is that? Wray is considered one of the top 100 guitarists ever. Ever.
And of course, he's played with Todd in The New Cars. He's no slouch.

I had too much fun - especially when the red wine kicked in and I got my DJ groove on. DougieDoug had better look out. I'm not sayin'...I'm just sayin'.

Thanks Doug and Atom - hugs all around!

Say What? *evil grin*

Take this test!

Rrowr! What would life be without you? Brazen, intelligent, and not afraid to say whatever (and we mean whatever) is on your mind, when it comes to being fearless — you're the real thing. While some things that come out of your mouth may make your friends a little uncomfortable, it's fun to stir the pot sometimes and get a reaction. And that's half the reason you do it!

At first glance you come across as quite the wild child, but you're not just a sexpot. Your closest friends get to find out that you've got a big heart underneath those hot, hot clothes and a great head on your shoulders. With that killer combo, there's no way you won't get everything you want. What a firecracker!

Peer Pressure Strikes Again

Okay, so we all know that I got my name because of my love of all things cruise-related. You didn't? Well, yeah. Catch up, okay?

So tonight, under pressure from yet another person who has reminded me of my recent blog-slackin', I sat at the computer and tried to channel my muse.

Unfortch, all I could muster was phonin' it in by way of one of those internet quizzes. So lame, I know, but it's the peer pressure, ya know?

Usually, these things come up with something like "You will be a cult leader" or "CruiserMel will marry John Mayer in 2032 at 3:00 pm at the drive-in." You know, stuff that could really happen.

So okay - really. Take a gander at this. Can you imagine anything more un-CruiserMel-like?

In what alternate dimension would CruiserMel be most comfortable?
In a dimension where...

The love boat is the only show that was ever or will ever be made
'In what alternate dimension would you be most comfortable?'
