Stern Looks

Hey folks, much apologies for my extended absence. I promise I’m still alive ;) Everyone’s been asking me about my “honeymoon”, but in reality it’s been one long hard slog. Don’t get me wrong, married life is great, it’s just there’s a lot of work to be done so this past month has been a…

Family Tradition

Hey DJ, you mind cuing up a good song for this article? Thanks, bro. Time for a shout out as the song loads. Aceasta melodia este dedicata din partea mea, Sam Cel Roman, pentru toti fratiorii mei pe care au ridicat un pahar bun, sau rulat o marfa buna cu mine, si a stat de…

Awesome News!

Wow! Okay well as you know I’ve been extremely busy this past week setting up The Romania Show. I promised not to mix too much TRS business here with this blog but I do want to announce we are all set for the first live broadcast later today at 7pm Romania time. Drop on by…

Me and SOPA and the Romanian Protests

I’m sure just about everyone reading this has heard about SOPA and knows (roughly) what’s been going on with that. Unlike most of you however, this actually affects me personally. First from Pirate Bay: Over a century ago Thomas Edison got the patent for a device which would “do for the eye what the phonograph…

Back Once Again With the Iubesc Behavior

Wow! Okay apparently last night they ran the episode with me on ProTV again. I assume it’s the same footage as I don’t own a television and nothing on their official website tells me differently (original video here). Kind of ironic I’ve been on television a dozen times in 2011 and yet never seen myself…

Book Sale!

In case you’re wondering, that’s not my beautiful hand in the picture. A reader and a fan sent that in after buying and enjoying my book. If you live in Romania I’ve got some very good news. Someone put in a large order of books and then changed their mind so now I’ve got a…

The Hard Knock Life

Please don’t mistake anything I’m about to say here but quite frankly, I am exhausted. The filming went wonderfully but it took a lot out of me and then running around (off camera) being a minor celebrity and getting patted on the back about a million times (verbally and physically) wore me out. Luckily it’s…

Just In Case

I already wrote a guide to Romania but it is entitled the Complete Guide and I realized that sadly, there’s some information missing! Just in case you ever find yourself called by a Romanian television station to be interviewed (in Romanian!), there are a few things you need to know ahead of time. Actually, there’s…

Gandul Article

Last night while I was hanging out with my rowdies, I got a call with the good news – my Gandul article is finally published. Yeehaw! It’s in Romanian but here is the awful Google translated version. Perhaps soon I’ll translate it “for reals” but for now you have to get by with Senor Google….

Episode 1 – The Beginning

Yep folks, look what’s ready for public consumption: Whew! If you only knew how long that took, especially on my ancient G5 computer, you’d almost want to hang your head down and cry :P Nonetheless, I finally got the ball rolling and episode 1 is “in the can”. My goal is to get a new…

NCN Interview in English

It took me a couple of hours to get this done but partly that was because I was laughing so much. Thanks to a tip from my friend Daciana I decided to try overdubbing video instead of using subtitles. Below is my NCN interview overdubbed in English by yours truly :) Enjoy! PS – In…
