HUGELY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

As you are well aware, Monday is International Talk Like a Pirate Day, the day on which all the peoples of the world set aside their differences and join together in saying "Arrrr," which is pretty much the only pirate expression anybody remembers. This year I'm going to be observing Talk Like a Pirate Day by appearing on the Paul and Young Ron Show on Big 105.9, where Paul and Ron  and I will be raising money for victims of Hurricane Katrina by holding an auction. One of the items we will be auctioning is a beautiful Gibson SG Special electric guitar, which was donated by the good folks at Gibson thanks to the ceaseless efforts of Ted "I Do NOT Have a Mullet Hairstyle, Even Though the Entire World Believes That I Do" Habte-Gabr. This very guitar will be played by members of the Famous Despite Being Really Bad "Rock Bottom Remainders" almost-all-author rock band when we appear at the Miami Book Fair in November; we will then sign the guitar and give it to the high bidder. Or, if the high bidder prefers, we will refrain from even touching the guitar, to avoid getting our musical cooties on it. Whatever the high bidder wants, we will do, unless it involves underage sheep.

So anyway, if you're in the South Florida area, please tune in to Big 105.9 FM Monday morning around 8, and please bid. To give you an idea of the size of this guitar, here's a photograph of it on my patio, next to the bone from a walrus penis:

Judi will be SO jealous.

UPDATE AND CORRECTON:

Commenter AXL sends this:

Dave, that guitar is an SG not an SG Special...

the Special has only two knobs, a tone and volume, and is only a single cutaway, not a double

it is however a very very beautiful guitar with an awesome tone, i own and play the doubleneck version of the SG and it is a really lovely guitar, whoever wins it will not be disappointed.... helping people and getting a lovely guitar

that's one weird looking guitar pick.

Will there be online bidding?

ARRRRRRR! First belongs to RED ROGER KIDD, me hearties!

ARRRRRRRR! Wrong again!

*note: Be careful when Dave asks you if you want to "play his guitar"*

Drink up me hearties yo ho?

Isn't there something about really bad eggs in there?

Koo Koo Ka Joo..

SlapShotFan: Good question. I'll try to find out.

Can I order mine with EXTRA cooties, and perhaps some assorted DNA? (I'm doing a little "experiment" in the basement)

For all you non-Miami bloglits:

Go to Big 106's Site and you can listen online.

Yes, but Dave, do you know what the market is for a guitar that was involved with underage sheep?

For some reason the link had all the herald stuff added to the beginning of it. Just take that stuff off and it works fine.

Or, click HERE

When you click on Dave's radio station link, be sure and listen to this:
ARIES SPEARS GOES MAD!!

It's hilarious!

Have a Hectic Day
note links just below that wish
Bad Credit Refinance . Online Dating . Marriage Counseling . Miami Dating . Debt Consolidation

Yep, sounds like they provide everything needed for a Hectic Day.

Thanks, Sarcasmo - sounds like a good station!

"Whatever the high bidder wants, we will do, unless it involves underage sheep."
Hmmm. Could the high bidder get the RBRers to shave Ted's head?

*mwah ha ha ha ha*

Gosh, Dave, I hate to correct an attribute that you used above, because I know it's embarassing to correct a Professional Journalist/Humorist Of Important Stature.

Bad:
Ted "I Do NOT Have a Mullet Hairstyle, Even Though the Entire World Believes That I Do" Habte-Gabr

Good:
Ted "I Do NOT Have a Mullet Hairstyle, Even Though the Entire World KNOWS That I Do" Habte-Gabr

The upside to Dave's appearance is that it will quell some of Paul's UF Gator talk, not that I would need a reason to listen when Dave is on.

aye, can i be pillaging and plundering with it?

arrrgh. thanks for the website info, i will go there so i can hear the broadcast...even at my peril, since the computer geeks here dont like us to do that because it 'uses too much bandwidth'. humbug!!

Dave-

What happens if the sheep are of age?

elle - don't ask, or the sheep get it!

There's a joke in there somewhere, about Elle's of-age sheep, and oosiks, but I can't seem to make it fit.

1. Will there be bidding on the walrus penis?

2. The station is 105.9; but online it's 106? They round up?

There are guitar picks and guitar pr . . .

Coolness! I can't seem to listen to the Aries Spears thing. I wonder why he snapped. He's pretty funny on Mad TV.

I do seem to be able to listen to the radio station online though. (right now it's Pink Floyd "Hey!... Teacher!... Leave those kids alone!")

Mike - he went berserk, ranted for 4 minutes (a long time on the radio) then stomped out still yelling until his voice faded away....
"Say it (?) to my face and I'll whoop your ass right here"

"Come out on the street and say it (?) and I'll whoop your ass"
etc.

Boo hoo...:(

Dave will be on at 8am, which is 5am here in su.so.ca.

Dave, if you call me and wake me up, I'll listen *grins hopefully*

hey, *I*ll call ya ;) or maybe i can get a copy of the show and post it on db.com at some point.

Judi gives wake up calls! Cool!!!!

... um ... any ideas about overage sheep, and what to do with them?

judi!!!

That would be so cool if you made a copy and posted it - let us know! And if you're serious about calling me, e-mail me. If I were still working, I'd have an alarm clock, but since I'm not....

actually, my last boyfriend took my only alarm clock with him when I threw him out! Do you think he was making some sort of statement, or just being the a**hole that he had turned out to be???

p.s. I've been listening to the station on line all day - pretty cool music, IMO.

p.s.2 - It would be fun to call and make a donation while Dave is on the air...:)

Dave, don't be dissin' underage sheep! That's where we get virgin wool!

Dave, that guitar is an SG not an SG Special...

the Special has only two knobs, a tone and volume, and is only a single cutaway, not a double

it is however a very very beautiful guitar with an awesome tone, i own and play the doubleneck version of the SG and it is a really lovely guitar, whoever wins it will not be disappointed.... helping people and getting a lovely guitar

My mother is going to be on the Today Show on Monday. She was "traumatized." *snort*

Hmmm...if only I could get Dave on my station...

Well, ok, I don't own it. I just seem to be here all the time.

i would like to point out that this guitar IS actually an SG special, that AXL guy is thinking of the les paul special.

the SG special has open pickups and dot inlays, whereas the standard SG has covered pickups and trapezoid inlays.

MELVIN I STAND CORRECTED, MY APOLOGIES FOR THE MISTAKE....

AND SORRY TOO, TO DAVE AND THE BLOGLITS, AND OF COURSE THE LOVELY JUDY...

Dave,

I listened in today but when it came to bidding on the guitar I thought I heard you say it was listed on Ebay and would be auctioned off there. But I can't find it on Ebay. Do you have a link? Or was it listed under portable bidets with cameras instead of under guitars?

wrong about that SG Special, AXL. that most definitely is an SG Special:
