    omg how has your answers to Ask Tony not been posted yet? 

    i blame the democrats – and Tom Seaver’s crappy arm

    Ali: are there any blogs you’d recommend reading that aren’t focused on people themselves??

    not really, but i will try: Metafilter, Post Secret, and the Best Page in the Universe

    Bob D: It’s October 30, 2008 and you are in Chicago. Your old buddy Bob D has hooked you up with World Series game 7 tickets and also AC/DC tickets at All State Arena formerly known as the Rosemont Horizon. AC/DC has announced a day earlier that this will be their last concert ever because Angus has no cartlidge left in his knees, ankles and hips. Do you go to the Cubs game or the AC/DC concert? Part B to the question. If you decide to go to the concert, because Bob D has generously hooked you up with two tix, do you take Joe Stillo, Kevin Nakashin, or Scott Speeden with you?

    i dont even think VIP tickets to the last Anything Goes party at the playboy mansion would tempt me away from seeing game 7 of the world series with my buddy bobby d. therefore Stillo and Speeden can go to the AC/DC show together. even though Kevin tried to sell me weed in junior high but thankfully i had zero money. he was all, what about for a buck? i was all, dude, i have zero money!

    timmay!!!!!: why is mccain trying to help obama so much?

    mccain secretly hates the republicans, which is why the republicans not-so-secretly hate him. half of em wouldnt even show up to the convention!

    Krista: What do you think about homecoming and university students who flip and set cars on fire? (re: queen’s homecoming, if you’ve ever read about it)

    university students should flip and set cars on fire at any event. they should be excluded from any prosecution. when they become adults they should be law-abiding citizens, but if youre in college you half to blow off a little steam, as rush limbaugh would say. so party on, kids. and play some good music as you do it.

    sass: bacon or sausage?

    sausage does have its good points. its spicy. it comes in so many different shapes. and when you consider what its made of, its sorta a miracle as to how good it can taste. however theres nothing as perfect as bacon on a sunday morning. the sound, the smell, the variety of tastes from the soggy to the crisp. theres bacon in heaven. in fact theres a bacon heaven where the pigs serve you right from a troth of bacon.

    Monkey: can you ask that kid if I can have his grover on a skateboard toy? I’ll pay him…

    that kid was very possessive with his toys. his baseball cards, however were totally up for grabs.

    Ciavarro: How can I see last week’s Ask Tony as I was in Mexico when it was published and I really need to know the answer to my hard hitting question?

    here you go buddy. and thanks for shipping me those cuban cigars and gallons of rum!

    zona: name three Angelinos who you would like to see blogging who aren’t

    three east coast transplants:

    Rick Rubin
    Manny Ramirez

    Alysif you could be anyone in the world for a day, who would it be and why? And no cheating and picking yourself!

    For one day I would be Eddie Van Halen. I would club hop in Hollywood and play with every band I could. Then I would record a follow up to Women and Children First with Michael Anthony, my brother, and David Lee. It would be a double album, with one album covers and the other new crap. It would only be available on 8 track.

    bigtanky: if we elope will you go to vegas with us?

    that would be pretty hard to refuse since i heart you both.

    Mike: I’m hosting my 90’s radio hour tomorrow night, any song suggestions/requests?

    Suicidal Tendencies “you cant bring me down”
    N.W.A “100 miles and runnin”
    Nirvana “Dumb” from Unplugged

    Sharp (aka Azreal Darkskies): Is there any worse way to spend your Friday than a night shift at a chain coffee joint?

    Actually, i dont think there is.

    The Holywriter: How do you balance your faith with your blog?

    im pretty sure the Lord loves it when we spread his message of Love no matter in which form that may take. but blogging is one of the best ways that we can demonstrate our Christianity because people can see that we are just normal people who have ups and downs like anyone else. but best of all non-Christians can see how God is part of our daily lives through what we write on our blogs.

    Andrea: I know not all writers are bloggers, but are all bloggers considered writers?

    yes. except for the video-only and/or photo-only bloggers. theyre commies.

    bloopy: what’s your opinion of fivethirtyeight.com? xkcd mentioned it in a recent comic and since i’d never heard of it i checked it out. . . seemed interesting but i was curious if you (and your journalist friends) thought their methods and calculations were sound or stupid. . .

    my journalist friends were actually the ones who turned me on to that blog. i like it a lot. they seem to get a ton of information into a really tiny place. thats hard to do.
