Earlier this week I was contacted by podcaster, Guy Hutchinson, who runs the show at Adventure Club Podcast. If you aren’t familiar with the podcast I encourage you to swing over to their website to check them out. Guy and his team interview all sorts of people including actors, authors, recording artists, and a long list of other interesting people.

After reading my blog post titled “My Cousin Vinny: Then and Now 20th Anniversary,” Guy sent me a tweet expressing interest in having me on his show so I could share my experience about the My Cousin Vinny filming locations tour I put together in 2012. You can read the brief Twitter exchange below.

My Visit To Lizard Lick Towing

Posted by Chris on December 9, 2012


While I typically only watch television shows that air on my favorite networks such as ESPN, History, A&E, Nat Geo, Animal Planet and a couple of others, there are times when I slip a few train-wreck reality shows onto my DVR for later viewing. Enter: Lizard Lick Towing.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the show, Lizard Lick Towing is a reality series that airs on TruTV every Monday at 10:00 p.m. and follows the daily high-octane escapades of the Lizard Lick crew as they attempt to repossess vehicles, boats, construction equipment, animals, and a laundry list of other crazy things. The crew, lead by owners Ron & Amy Shirley and their best buddy, Bobby Brantley, always seem to get caught up in some of the most insanely-dangerous situations that turn ugly – in a hurry.

My Cousin Vinny: Then and Now 20th Anniversary

Let me start this post by saying that I’m not a huge movie buff, but like anyone else I do enjoy watching movies and also have a list of movies that I call my favorites. Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Breakfast Club, Casino, and Heat are just a few of the movie titles that hold a comfortable spot on my all-time favorite list. However, My Cousin Vinny, a 1992 comedy film directed by Jonathan Lynn, definitely rounds out the top ten on my all-time favorite list of movies. Perhaps you’ve seen it, heard of it? Ok, well, if you fall into the very small group of movie-goers who have missed this hilarious film here’s the plot in a nutshell.

Joe Pesci, Marisa Tomei, Ralph Macchio, and Chris Credendino (Ok, I kid. I kid. You can strike my name from the list of actors, but my last name does end in the letter “o,” I am Italian, come from New York, and think I would have added something a little extra to the film – just sayin’.) are among the actors who headline the star-studded cast in this hilarious comedy about two New Yorkers who are accused of murder in rural Alabama while traveling back to college. Vincent “Vinny” Gambini, a loudmouth, obnoxious personal injury attorney from Brooklyn with zero trial experience heads south to defend the “two yutes.” Oh, excuse me… I mean… two YOUUUTHS! And so the laughs begin!

How I Use Posterous

Posted by Chris on May 7, 2010

After kicking the idea around for a while, I finally decided to sign up and give Posterous a try. For those of you who are not familiar with Posterous, it’s a simple blogging platform that allows you to post anything to the Web using e-mail. Simply send an e-mail to post@posterous.com including content such as text, documents, photos, videos, music, or audio and Posterous will take care of the rest.

The reason I decided to use Posterous is because it bridges the gap between Twitter and my WordPress blog. There’s a lot going in the space between Twitter and a full length blog so I felt it was necessary to have space where I can post content that exceeds the 140 character limit and falls short of my formal WordPress content.
