Larry Miller Calls Out Over The Internet

Listeners all over the world are encouraged to join in a bent elbow salute and enroll in the Larry Miller Drinking Society. Specifically, Larry reaches out to listeners in Iceland, Guam and other far-flung locales to unite. Well, basically to have an excuse to hoist a few.

      What would “I agree wholeheartedly” be in Icelandic? That could be a new hobby for Larry: collecting foreign language versions of it.

    That’s funny about Germany having one fewer listener than Isreal, but Isreal having three fewer than Mexico is hilarious!
    Keep it up Larry

    Larry, you have at least one listener from Chile… me.
    Also, apparently the name Bangkok is of unclear etymology. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bangkok#History

    Great Show

    Is this gonna encourage me to fall off the wagon? I am experiencing a self imposed OCTSOBER.

    I was living for happy hour, and decided I needed to put the brakes on. Day 6 ugh. Larry, I will listen, maybe I can enjoy myself w/o drinking!

    Can we get Larry Miller’s gem on Podcaster? It’s a great convenient way to do a 1-step refresh and download of all the ACE network podcasts, with the exception of Larry’s! We need to fix it so I don’t miss another!

      Not sure if ‘Podcaster’ is an iPhone app, but if it is all you will have to do is add the RSS Feed to it. Sorry not more familiar with it but it’s usually not that hard to add to your list of shows.

    Hi, Larry! One of the 10 in Brazil reporting. Since I’m the first, I guess that makes me the president of the Brazilian Chapter of the Drinking Society. Hope the fact that I don’t drink won’t pose a problem…

    Not from Israel, Iceland or Mexico but I’ll bet that I’m the only one on my block to listen to your podcast. Which I thoroughly enjoy by the way. Loved the tale of your attempt to join the mile high club.

    I’ll get my friends to listen as well, and we will then tilt a few back until were at ‘level 5′ and somebody will yell, “We’re driving to Montenegro!”

    The story about Bud Abbott being Shanghaied seems incorrect. No mention of it on Wikipedia, and it says he grew up in New Jersey, not Brooklyn. Is Larry confusing Bud with someone else?

    • Gabriel
      2011/05/10 at 10:37 am #

      Yea, but Wikipedia is the suckers’ reference. Accuracy is not a priority for Wikipedia.

      According to the biography on their lives: THE ABBOTT & COSTELLO STORY Bud Abbot was Shangheid at age 16 after he struck out to make his own way in the world. So Larry really only had the age wrong.

    Hi Larry – Love the show. “Indian style” has been replaced with “Chris-cross applesauce”. It makes me cringe just writing it.

    Larry, I am going to have to stop listening to your podcast on my work commute. I laugh so hard that it makes driving dangerous.

    Are you kidding Larry? Really? That story about Bud Abbott is sheer fantasy. Bud was born in New Jersey in 1897 and was never taken away to work on any ship. Wild story telling bro…hilarious but not true.
    Abbott was born in Asbury Park, New Jersey into a show business family. His parents worked for the Barnum and Bailey Circus: his mother, Rae (née Fisher), was a bareback rider and his father, Harry, was an advance man. Abbott dropped out of school as a child and began working at Coney Island. When Abbott was 16, his father, now an employee of the Columbia Burlesque Wheel, installed him in the box office of the Casino Theater in Brooklyn. Eventually, Abbott began putting together touring burlesque shows. In 1918, he married Betty Smith, a burlesque dancer and comedienne. Shortly after his marriage, Abbott and his new wife began producing a vaudeville “tab show” called Broadway Flashes. This show toured on the Gus Sun Vaudeville Circuit.[1] Around 1924, Abbott started performing as a straight man in an act with Betty. As his stature grew, Abbott began working with veteran comedians like Harry Steppe and Harry Evanson.

    Bud Abbot was indeed shanghaied to Norway.

    Travis, never use Wikipedia as an authoritative source, especially not a sole source for information. While it often does have valuable information, it almost as often doesn’t because just anyone can edit the entries.

    Larry, I’m a HUGE fan and I also happen to do a really really good Walter Winchell/WWII news reel announcer voice and I’d love the opportunity to record some stuff for your opening/closing.

    I’ll send you an email with a recorded example.

    Great show Larry! I listened to three of your podcasts while I was bike riding this afternoon. I love your jazz riffing on different thoughts from cheating or not cheating to the Titanic and Bud Abbot being Shanghaied. I don’t care if he was or not, just the idea of an 11 year old kid being sent out for a bucket of beer and being impressed as a cabin boy for two years is great. Keep up the great pod casts!

    Is there going to be an defenate link for the LMDS card or will I have to burrow deep into some super-tech hovel like place… , … or should I just send a self addressed envelope and hope for the best?

    Greetings from California! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, great blog!
