Robert Stark and I Discuss Las Vegas Culture on The Stark Truth
Robert and I recently went on a trip to Las Vegas and decided to do a show about it.
You can listen to it here.
It was a great trip, but I wish I could have stayed longer. It was extremely hot during the day to walk around. You can cover a lot more ground and see more in the winter. My girlfriend and I are considering moving there near the strip(such a romantic place for a couple to settle down!) In all seriousness though, I love Las Vegas and have always wanted to live there ever since I saw Diamonds Are Forever when I was a kid. My favorite episode of Charlie’s Angels is the two part season premier(Season 3?) featuring Dean Martin. He has a memorable line at the end:
“He’s been playing ‘Don’t Pass’ and ‘Don’t Pass’ is for non-believers. Sabrina, sooner or later, you have to be a believer.”
I’m not sure how it relates to anything specifically, but I always found it inspiring…in the sense that pessimism and negativity are smart bets, but sooner or later to win you have to be optimistic about something.
Of course, I also own every episode of the mostly forgotten yet highly underrated late 70’s show, “Vega$.” I highly recommend it if you enjoy any of the old private investigator shows like The Rockford Files, Charlie’s Angels, Magnum P.I. etc.(why were there so many in the 70’s and early 80’s?) Also…Robert Urich, RIP. What a great actor.
