The Ticker: MTV’s 25, More info on the UAB debate and a new way to find gas

You know you still want it…

Alan Hunter courtesy of NPRI admit I was a little slow yesterday not hopping on the MTV/Alan Hunter bandwagon and all. I mean, why bother when you have Wade doing this great interview with Alan. No, I will instead provide some valuable information for those of you not venturing out to participate in the sales tax holiday in this weekend and have cable. Those with VH1 Classic will be able to enjoy MTV’s first day, complete with the Video Killed the Radio Star video this Saturday, August 5, beginning at 9 a.m. If anyone feels like inviting me over to watch, let me know.

VH1 Classic to Air First Day of MTV, July 31, 2006

This will be especially helpful to those that did not stay home from work yesterday to watch the first day from midnight on. You can also check out videos from the first day of Music Television on VH1 Classic’s VSPOT. Relive your childhood and get your MTV, the way it used to be. It definitely blazed a trail for the genre of music video television, now being led by stations such as Fuse and The Tube.

Let the debating begin

There will be others, but we do have some information on a gubernatorial debate scheduled for Tuesday, October 24, from 7 – 9 p.m. on the campus of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The debate will be sponsored by the school’s Undergraduate Student Government Association (USGA) and the UAB Entertainment Committee and take place at the Alys Stephens Center. For more information, it is listed that you should contact the president of the USGA, Andrew Brashier, at 934.8020. We’ll try to keep you abreast of any other debates or forums as they are announced.

The latest weapon in the battle with the gas pump

j0399397.jpgWith all of the focus on gas prices rising, several outlets are trying to make sure that people are aware of where consumers can find inexpensive gas in the region. BirminghamGasPrices.Com provides this information for the lowest and highest prices in the area. As prices are rumored to be moving towards $4 or even $5/gallon, sites that this one will become increasingly popular as consumers shop around for the best deal. Now if we can only keep our existing mass transit system from shrinking any more than it already is threatening to.

Laptops, coffee and conversation…

Or for those of us that aren’t supposed to be drinking coffee right now, maybe some lemonade. The fact remains that tonight may be the first time that some of us in the metro Birmingham blogging world will meet. I definitely know that I don’t know as many people by their actual name and face as I would like to. This evening’s event will take place at the Panera Bread in Vestavia Hills.
