Greg Guests on The Frank Nora Show

posted on Aug 30, 2010 | Comments (2)

This was fairly impromptu, but Frank Nora, the Babe Ruth of Podcasting, was at the NAVA (North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados) meetup at the Digital Press Video Game store in Clifton, NJ, this past weekend, as was Greg. So we did a short interview. Frank you may remember was our guest on Episode 90 of the Paunch Show almost 3 years ago.

We talked about:

  • small US states,
  • the oldest living celebrity who recently died (Mitch Miller),
  • the Gabor sisters,
  • Frank’s tickets to Pee Wee on Broadway,
  • theatrical plays shown on closed circuit movie screens,
  • Journal Square in Jersey City, NJ,
  • Belleville Turnpike backroad through a marsh,
  • collecting classicvideo games,
  • Need for Speed World free MMO racing game.

The one, the only, Sir Sean Connery. Don’t worry, we paid him $1 million dollars!

This is what Connery had to say….

“I’m swimming every day and I’m even trying to get the golf swing working again – but that might take a little bit longer.

“During the summer, I wasn’t in pain but I wasn’t feeling great. I came to the Edinburgh Film Festival in June then, when I left for the south of France, I realized I’d lost a little bit of weight and needed to change my regime. I’ve done that and the last few days have been pretty special with the family here.

“We’ve eaten non-stop and it has been a great celebration.”

Other birthdays today include THE Regis Philbin, Gene Simmons, Elvis Costello, Tim Burton, and Billy Ray Cyrus.
