A Sold Out Show

The annual Omaha Press Club Show attracted a sellout crowd of 795 Saturday night at the Mid-America Center.

(Jane Palmer's review in the online edition of the Omaha World-Herald is no longer available.)

I'll take "Things That Make Omaha Look Stupid" for $1000, ALex.

Why does the OWH website never work? Every time I try to click on a link or type Omaha.com, the site will never open? And you wonder why the papers are going broke.

The skit about The Skipper (Justice) and Gilligan (Perrault) was a riot!!!!!!

shameless website promotion...

Anonymous said...

yea...click on the video link(s): and voila! there's nothing!
Nice website! It would be in 42's best interest to NOT promote it

Self-absorbed drech. This one was the worst:

And the chorus followed: "It is an itsy bitsy teenie weenie tiny Rosenblatt arena. Much too old for the series to play."

When did Rosenblatt turn into an arena? Venue I could buy, but arena? It's not funny when you have to cram in wrong words.

Just proves these people all think they're so cute, but no one outide of the state line knows or cares who they are. Yuck.

I got on the OWH website today with no problems. The problem may be with your computer...in fact, it IS your computer that the problem.

Or maybe the user...

Omaha.com get it together. Your video solution is horrible. Quicktime? Seriously? Random videos that run on and on? Here is a thought. Try shooting some video that you can use WITH an article. Embed the flash player in the body. Better yet, just go to
LincolnJournalStar.com and steal all their ideas.

7:56 AM - Shut up and quit whining on your 486.

The Weird-Harold stealing from the Journal-Star??? Perish the thought...

Jess said...

Well....good to know that nothing good happened while I was out of town.

Trust me, it is not my computer. Whenever I want to check the OWH website before bed, it rarely pulls up for me until after midnight. It's not that hard to type omaha.com, it will just keep loading and loading and finally say error.

I've seen other people complain about it as well. So I don't think it's the "user" that has a problem here. It is literally the only website that I know of that does this when I try to pull it up from time to time...it seems to be only at night though.

Did you try pulling it up during the day?

KETV has a new morning wreck reporter....what ever happened to the voice they called J.T.? How come J.T. never got the chance to show his mug on tv? Wreck reporters/ traffic guides...whatever you want to call them, are a waste of time, money and have a six-month time span.

Horatio Caine said...

Weird Harold? Who's writing that, J-Dub (based on originality or lack thereof) or Bill Cosby? This site is a train wreck; how do you go from crappy wannabe circus performers as the topic and turn it into a diatribe on some ditwad who can't operate a Pentium 486? Welcome to Short Attention Span Theatre - wait, some of the Press Club bozos might want to act in that one too.

Impeach Fahey! Mayor Perrault 4 hire.

Wrong blog, those are comments exclusively for wowt.com, Ted Brockman's favorite site.

Anonymous said...

so are we going to have a story about the new KETV traffic to go on this blog?

Anonymous said...

Anyone hear about the World-Herald chopping jobs today? I heard six in the newsroom, cuts across the board, too.

Horatio Caine said "...some ditwad who can't operate a Pentium 486?"

Hmmm... a "Pentium 486"??? What "ditwad" doesn't have a frickin' clue about computer chip naming conventions?

There's no such thing as a "Pentium 486". Between development of the 486 and 586, Intel (the maker of the 486 and Pentium) lost a court case that the "x86" line of processors was trademarked. Since "586" could no longer be exclusively used by Intel, they kept the "5" part of the "x86" and called it the Pentium chip. Then they stuck with the Pentium trademark for a few iterations: Pentium II = 686, Pentium III = 786, etc.

So who's calling who a ditwad? Ditwad.

On the Farah watch...

It's 10pm on Sunday night. My watch for the return of Farah Fazal resumes. After some news and weather, there she is!!

She's interviewing a 23-year-old DJ who can't get enough of vinyl LPs. My notes don't contain his name. Was it T-Pain, or maybe T-Rex? Nevermind, that's a digression. At the end of the story, we see Farah assisting the DJ. She's scratchin' to his beat (no, get your mind out of the gutter. She's working one turntable, he's working the other.) Even Rob and Brandi were impressed with her scratchin' skills.

WOWT, you better watch out!!! Looks like Farah's one-up'd Mr. Knicely's "John at Work" series...

If this is true who's gonna be left to be a member of the Omaha Press Club?

To the Geek - I think everyone realizes it was a goof, referring to how old his computer was (maybe one the cavemen used, ha ha). Thanks for continuing to give Geeks a bad name with that foot-stomper, you sounded just like Comic Book guy on the Simpsons. Techy geek who can't take/doesn't get jokes outside of their monitor. You may now return to your Aquaman comic books.

9:19 -- I believe you have just proven, once and for all, that you are the foremost expert on ditwads, which comes as no surprise...you see one every day when you look in the mirror.

Congrats, moron...LOL.

Fahey's recall votes totals are not being announced until d-day. WHY?!?!?! A countdown to watching him clean out his office would be nice.

Anonymous said...

That's because the recall people know they aren't going to get the signatures they need, so they don't want to be embarrassed when it is discovered they are a very vocal, and shallow-thinking, minority.

Jess said...

Wow, here I didn't even know "ditwad" was a word and I find out that there are experts in "ditwads" !!

Anonymous said...

7:31 -- they're easy to spot. Usually, they're also experts in Pentium chip configuration...

Anonymous said...

Wasn't Pentium a charachter in the movie The Matrix??

Can someone post a new link to the review? That link leads a page that reads: " Story no longer available."

What a joke.

Matt Perrault is NOT, I repeat NOT gay.





April Fools....

DITWADs...an old Otis and Diver term....Drivers in Traffic Without Adequate Driving Skills....and Matt is now and forever will be gay, darlings.

5:47 PM - What's your obsession with the traffic dweeb (I'd use ditwad, but that might derail this so-focused blog) on KETV? The way you're acting you'd think recall petition votes weren't being followed close enough. Uh, wait, another turn off the cliff. Either way, lighten up on the traffic reader - call KETV if you need a bio.

10:05 AM - You almost got me, what a letdown THAT would have been.

I hope 10:22 didn't miss his Dungeons and Dragons game to pat himself on the back.

Actually, I'm so geeky I'm writing a Mac virus. Then on to the iPhone.
