I'm back on diet coke, the next great Vienna Teng idea......

Postby Ang Mo » Sat Oct 24, 2009 5:40 am

So it hit me like a lightning bolt out of the sky. I quickly increased my pace in the pouring rain, boosted my resolve, stormed through the door, smashed the protective glass on the "Break in case of Emergency" container and pulled out the nectar that has now spawned a new idea. I feel as fresh as a salmon after the spawn, but now realize that is not to fresh so lets just say I am just beginning to go upstream.........

So the idea is this a new video featuring these wonderful eco friendly machines:

You hear Vienna's music in the voice over segment and then Vienna herself pops out of one of these extremely cool creations at the end of the video. Now to pick which song...................
I probably need to break another emergency glass and get another diet coke.

That would increase anyone's sex appeal significantly.

Watched the video. Very cool! No specifics as to the mpg (or kpg, I guess, since it was a BBC story), though. Any other source to get that info? And that cost (50,000 gbp) is a bit steep!

Hate to see the crash test results, though. Although I can't imagine that they'd be any worse than a standard motorcycle....

Ang Mo --- so, you fell off the Diet Coke wagon and it results in a post about another sort of transportation, eh? :)

That's a big AMEN!!! Roofboy!

Well I had been drinking water and I was trying to be trendy drinking that European/Bolshevekian kind made by some greedy tycoon named Smirnoff or some such nonsense. He called it Vodka. I have to tell you, that crap will kill you. They just don't know how to properly bottle water over there. It tasted rancid and foul and it spoiled my mood. They can keep their crummy products. So please buy American water people.

Now that I am back on diet coke, my mood is just fine and I have a sunny outlook forty percent of the time and a chance of deep depression mental rain the other sixty percent ALWAYS. I feel like a mustard seed just dying to get some faith...............I'm stoked.

Extra credit to anyone who can identify the music in that video.

Mr. Chairman, we hope you can climb back on the wagon soon. Addictions are not easy to break, but it's worth the suffering.

As far as that Russian bottled water is concerned, I would never drink it. But some studies say it is an effective alternative to gasoline. :wink:

I am thinking that the Vienna song that should be used for this particular transportation product would be either Harbor, Shasta, or Antebellum.[/url]

The pictures above have nothing to do with my post. I just like them, they are fascinating to me.

So I pulled the Liahona out and watched the spindles spin and then fixate in the direction of the bookcase towards the books starting with the letter "C". It is the fortieth year of Sesame Street I thought and this made a deep impression on my mind and created excitement like the time I discovered that ketchup and mayonaise mixed create the ingredients of "Secret Sauce"..............

So I went to the books with the letter "C", it was pretty easy, there was only one, it was about Canada, and I just randomly turned to a page. This is where the idea hit. It talked about The Gulf Islands
http://www.gulfislandsguide.com/ These beautiful islands are laced with nice little villages and hamlets and they are just a short ferry ride from the giant city of Vancouver. I was thinking how cool it would be if Vienna would perform on each island and finish up with a grand finale in Vancouver. Maybe there is a cruise ship deal like the Cayamo operation. Anyhow it looks like it would be scenic and fun. Anyhow this idea was sponsored by the letter "C" and was made possible by a grant from the Exxon Corporation. I feel so PBS tonight..............that's public broadcasting service.....good night.

Been awhile since I've been here. Nice to come back "home" every so often, where I know I can always count on Ang Mo to bring a smile to my face.... :)

Thank you, Chris!

Now after slamming down a diet coke with an Arizona Green Tea chaser I had a Eureka moment and I wasn't even in the bathtub! I was thinking earlier in the day how hard it is to talk on a cell phone in a noisy restaurant. I think the same would apply like in a casino, sports bar, stadiums, or concert venues, or any place with lots of people and noise.

The solution was there and not a single soul on this planet realized the obvious.........(I could be exaggerating)..................take a breath......

Answer: A cell phone booth

There is no phone in it, the person already has their own cell phone, they just need a place where they can have some peace and quiet to make the call. These booths could be installed in restaurants, bars, stadiums, concert houses, practically anywhere. Now advertising could be placed in them to pay for the booth. We could give free advertising to Vienna of course for advertising her concerts. For the green issue we could tout the idea of reducing noise pollution or maybe make the booth out of recycled materials. Maybe have a few small lock boxes built into the booth with a cell phone charger with a universal adaptor so the person in the restaurant for example, who has a nearly dead battery could lock the phone in the box while it charged, ate their meal, then retrieved their phone from the lock box and are on their way with a charged phone. Also in places where vandalism is not a problem, why not a touch screen phone book (white and yellow pages) built right in, sort a like the keypad of an Apple Touch. It would be an integral component of the booth.

It is an absolutely brilliant idea, one that I stole, from an individual who could pass a sanity test if not put under too much stress or pressure............hmmmm..............

If that doesn't work I was thinking of new Nerf Toy for kids. A foam Australian Woomera. Once an American kid has used a Woomera, life will never be the same...........

I'm thirsty, I'm going to get another diet coke..........

It is an Australian Spear throwing device.

I remember the town of Woomera, Australia, as a tracking station for Project Mercury space capsules in the early days of manned space exploration (how's THAT for geeky!). Googling it I see that it is now home to the Woomera Missile Park which is odd indeed.

How about the next concert in Hawaii which is around February that Vienna enters the concert via a "Zip Line"? That might prove to be difficult so she could always sing a song that incorporated the word: Woomera.

I have not posted an idea since November of 2009. Well after several diet cokes and a chocolate dipped cone from Dairy Queen I feel inspired with a new idea, actually a variation of one already played out. It was kind of cool though. So here goes. First you all have to watch the video. It is over sixteen minutes long, but there is a point to the exercise.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGn3-RW8Ajk
........and one more thing........as the great tv detective Columbo would say, there is a funny punch line at the end.

Now I know Vienna is going back to college, at the University of Michigan, and it dawned on me that if the students of the Unversity of Michigan wanted to make a video like the students of Yale did, than Vienna would be the perfect choice to do the singing for the video. I would really get a hoot out of that. I would like to see her in a musical and this would be a great way to see her in one. Maybe one promoting the program and particular college she is attending.

This is my idea of the month. P.S. The chocolate dipped cones at Dairy Queen are still pretty good..........
