Talking (One Day Before Eating) Turkey


As an early Thanksgiving treat, I present you all with Six Pack #24. In it, amongst the usual hilarity and irreverence, we interview Oscar winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, actor Victor Garber, comedian Judy Gold, and noted homosexual Lance Bass.

After Thanksgiving Ben and I are off on the Royal Caribbean cruise that we'll be performing on for Pied Piper Travel. I can confirm there is wi-fi on the boat and we will be blogging, tweeting, Facebooking and several other things that are better left unsaid.

Have a happy Thanksgiving, everyone...

No this isn't a picture of the lobby of the W Hotel in midtown, it is actually a picture of the newly redesigned McDonald's here in Chelsea. Considering that the McDonald's near my apartment makes you go to the counter just to get napkins, this certainly seems like a step-up. Since this is a bit off-brand for McD's, I will check it out sometime this week and let you know. Maybe Ben and I can podcast from there, I'm sure they have wi-fi in such a fancy, french-fry, fast-food, food-court.

Oh, and as long as I'm discussing these such establishments, I went to Subway yesterday only to find out that the turkey no longer qualifies as a 5 Dollar Footlong sandwich. For $7.08 I can go get a real sandwich. Jared can go f*ck himself.

Ok, gym time, you know, gotta work off all this fast-food...

I Love Lucy...err, Lily


One of the best moments of last week on Frank's show was getting the chance to interview the fantabulous Lily Tomlin. The whole interview was about 20 minutes long but I've clipped it down to about five minutes and even inserted this nifty little audio player for you to check it out. Just click play...

Yes, she did LOL at a couple of my lines. Pretty, pretty good...

BD In Honor of MJ

LeBron James announced a few days ago that he is changing his jersey number from "23" to "6" in homage to Michael Jordan. Cynics are saying that LeBron is doing to sell a whole crap load of new jerseys, but I'd rather think it is just about his love of basketball history. I'm such a romantic.

While Lebron's motives for changing his jersey number are up for debate, Ben and I are proud to present the Six Pack #23 for all the right reasons. Just click here and enjoy...

Our Names in (Blue) Lights

Tomorrow is our final day guest hosting The Frank Decaro Show. It's really been a blast so far, and the energy and people over there really make for an all-natural Red Bull. Plus having our names on a little blue screen is pretty cool, too.

Full recap of the week tomorrow. As if you haven't been listening, but of course you have...

We Love Milk

We hit the red carpet last night for the Emory Awards, given by the Hetrick Martin Institute, which is the home of the Harvey Milk School. We interviewed Lance Bass, Judy Gold, Dustin Lance Black, Victor Garber and Newark Mayor Corey Booker, just to name a few. The interviews will be posted throughout the next two episodes of the Six Pack.

Yes, your eyes do not deceive you, Ben and I are actually wearing ties in that picture. And as Patrick from Delaware said on Facebook, we remind him of a black-and-white cookie. Hmm, you know, I think I'll reward myself with one of those for a job well-done...

(Note: I am forgoing the obvious Milk and cookie joke despite all my natural urges.)

Sirius(ly) Ben and Dave

And to think we are on an audio-only medium. Pretty upsetting, isn't it?

That's Ben and I at his big, gay Brooklyn party, Gumbo, on Thursday night. It was a rockin' evening and I must say that my Brokeback Mountain-inspired shirt stole the show.

We're guest hosting The Frank Decaro Show all this week, from 11 am to 2 pm eastern, on Sirius OutQ channel 109, or XM channel 98. You can download a free trial (which even has an iphone player now) right here.

Oh, and tell 'em Ben and Dave sent ya.

(It won't do anything for you, but it's just fun to say things like that...)

Hideki (Insert Something That Rhymes with Hideki)

It's only the fifth inning of game 6 of the World Series, but seeing as the Yankees lead 7-1, I'm gonna say that the Yanks will win their 27th World Series in about an hour from now. I'm also gonna say that in about an hour and five minutes from now people will vandalize random cars and stores and burn garbage cans throughout NYC.

Prove me wrong, drunken Yankee fans, prove me wrong!

One guy who won't be proven wrong, at least tonight, is Yankee designated-hitter Hideki Matsui, who has 6 RBI's already. I'm guessing sushi places all over NYC will have specials in honor of him tomorrow. At least the ones that aren't destroyed in the celebratory rioting.

Prove me wrong drunken Yankee fans, prove me wrong!

Alright, that's it for now, I'm gonna go get some orange juice for the morning. Hmm, maybe I should put on my bullet-proof vest in case the celebrating has started early.

Prove me wrong drunken Yankee fans, prove me wrong!

Miami is Nice, So I'll Say it Twice, Miami is Nice, Miami is Nice

Firstly, kudos and mad props to anyone who gets the reference in the title of this post. If you Google it, you'll only be cheating yourself, so don't even try.

The picture is of my brother and I in Miami on Saturday morning. He has often commented that he doesn't get enough play here on Rubinville, so hopefully this makes up for it. (Note: He is not a Jets fan, he just likes the color.)

The bachelor party weekend in Miami was fantastic. It included (in no order), food, drinking, stories, drinking, food, laughing, stories, beaching, pooling, drinking, boating, drinking, swimming, masticating, tanning, drinking, eating and a tiny bit of sleeping.

Yes, I said masticating. And it doesn't mean what your thinking. That one you can Google.

Episode 22 of the Six Pack went up this morning. Seeing as it is now after 5 in the afternoon you are clearly are on your third or fourth listen of the day. Pretty good, right?
