Russ Roca: TV Celebrity

Talk about getting scooped — our “blinkie-lighted siblings” (to borrow a phrase from Bike Snob NYC) over at Commute By Bike posted a YouTube video of our own Russ Roca. Russ was featured on the Planet Green TV show “G Word”, and the show did a pretty good job of showcasing the day to day activities of Russ as he pedals around southern California for his photography business. I had caught the show when it broadcast (my wife and I are big fans of the show), but until CbB posted it, I was unaware that there was a Web-based version available.

Check it out:

A special tip of the ol’ “foam chapeau” to Fritz for turning us onto the YouTubed segment from the show.

    Forget Howard Stern, Russ is the King of All Media. Print, television, blogs, the internet, what’s next?

  4. Fritz October 24, 2008 9:32 am 

    Howard Stern is still relevant? I used to listen to him on WWDC waaay back in 1981, back when he was actually funny.

    Thanks for the props; it’s always a pleasure scooping you guys. :0)

    You know, he appears to be quite intelligent despite what the rest of you all say behind his back.

    Are you kidding? We all have secret “man crushes” on him!!! Oops, it’s no longer a secret…

    Geez… pay someone a compliment and you act like I let the air out of his tires or something.

  13. Ghost Rider October 30, 2008 3:06 am 

    Marrock, were YOU the one who let air out of his tires?!?

    Just messin’ with you, buddy — we know it’s all in good fun.

    No, but I have been releasing specially trained suicide squirrels at various locations around the country.

    Feeding them nothing but carbon fiber and Gu packs is a major part of their training…
