The CD "Tipping Point" by The Cringe

I’ve had the @IAMDANDC account on Twitter for 2 or 3 months now and of course the people who follow that account are varied.  There have been some writers, comedy clubs (no I don’t do standup) and a wide group of miscellaneous.

Today though was the strangest and or coolest.  I got followed by a band called “The Cringe”  (Twitter name @thecringe).  Now if they were a 70’s cover band I would understand.  But they are based out of New York and record contemporary music.

After following them back, I went to their Website – and was checking them out and I knew one of the band members looked familiar.  I’m thinking where do I know this guy from?  So I clicked on the “about” tab on their website and started reading their bios. 

One of the names ALSO seemed familiar but 1+1 was not equaling 2 yet.  But I assumed the familiar name matched the familiar face.  So of course I went to google and googled the name.

This guy who is their lead vocalist and one of the guitar players – IS MARRIED TO RACHAEL RAY FROM THE FOOD NETWORK!!

I knew I recognized that dude.

Check em out and if you are in New York City maybe stop in at one of their dates – which are listed on their website or follow them on Twitter.

As always –

Chicken Man and Loni Love

December 20, 2009

Chicken Man's Favorite Meal

This is actually a followup to two previous posts. Several weeks ago I did a post on another blog professing my Twitter Love for comedian Loni Love because of her interaction with me via twitter (click here to see that post).  Then a few days ago I made the post on here “Marijuana and Hooters are The Same Thing” (Click here to see that post) .

After Loni Love mentioned the original post on her Twitter account the views of that post SKYROCKETED to the highest numbers ever seen before or since.

Well it has happened again.

I let Loni Love know about the “Marijuana and Hooters are The Same Thing” post on this site yesterday morning.  Loni specifically noticed a very small mention in the post where I revealed the nickname some former employees had given me.  Which is  “CHICKEN MAN” due to my love of any type of chicken but especially fried.  She mentioned it to me so I sent out a Tweet sharing that Loni Love had called me “Chicken Man”.

I had been happy with the number of views of the post up until that time but then this tweet came through on Twitter.

That is a retweet and what just happened was that  Loni Love just sent a link to my blog post to all her followers. 

The numbers SOARED through the roof once again.


If I made any money off this blog I would owe her a cut for being my publicist.

The main thing is it is just a nice thing to do for a fan.  Do you think Joel Stein could ever be bothered to do something nice? doubtful from what I have read.
