  • Another site that is similiar to WOOT, but instead offers one-wine-per-day ’til sold out is called Wines ‘Til Sold Out (www.winestilsoldout.com). The prices are incredible and shipping is free with an average order of $80.

    Great episode Gary! I’m a Wine.Woot customer from the beginning (not all wines are available for sale in NJ, ugh) I’ve bought many of the offerings on the site and been pleased with the quality of each one. The $5 flat shipping rate is unbelievable (you can buy a case and it’s still $5!). As far as Web 2.0 and have to include WLTV, Woot and AllMusic among my favs. Keep up the great work!

    Wow, that was quite an episode! What got you so jazzed-up?

    QOD: It goes w/o saying that I love WLTV, but I’d like to mention Gmail because it’s a huge improvement on all the other email sites I’ve seen or used. I’m often shocked when I encounter people who are still using Hotmail or Yahoo or, gawd forbid, Aol. Also, worldcat.org is worthy of mention. It’s the world’s largest index of libraries, and is an invaluable research tool. Other than that, it’s easy to spend hours at wikia.com, not to mention Wikipedia.

    Here’s another site: drbukk.com. It’s not web2.0, but it’s very amusing. Who wouldn’t benefit from a pair of hideous fake teeth?

    following my own advice, I just headed over to wikia.com and found the Family Guy Wiki. 😀

    Another favorite: the onion. I know I should probably stop listing links, but it’s so hard to choose a single favorite.

    BTW, thanks for introducing me to humanclock.com, Matthew L!

    Good,bad and ugly. Great movie theme. That could be used to describe the forum posts, eh?

  • wine.woot.com is hit or miss with New Jersey shipping. I wouldn’t be surprised to see NJ omitted from the ‘states shipped to’ list…if it’s on there it’ll be followed by ‘expect tediously long delivery times’

    QOTD – i like wikipedia.org. That’s where I had to go to find out what web 2.0 was. I find myself on that site all the time just checkin’ out random stuff.

  • I love Web 2.0, because I can say things like this.

    That is a big glass. Perhaps, if you get one a tad bigger you could fit your whole head in it. Imagine having your head surrounded in wine aromas. Dream of it. You know you want it.

    All in good fun, Gary, keep it up.

    Drowned smurfs and cork tossing: is this indicative of too many wine tastings today? Sometimes credibility suffers when dignity declines. Energy is best when it appears to be in control.

  • I’m not very computer-literate (I hate these things) so I don’t know what a Web 2.0 website is as opposed to a regular old website. So, I guess I’ll vote for you. Or the Fat Wreck records website.

    Yours is the only one I visit daily, so I guess that counts for something. Well, I don’t visit if I’m out of town because I don’t bring a computer along with me while travelling and I will never, ever bother to use a computer in a hotel lobby–unless I’m lost or something.

    OK…Jets better beat the Pack, see you later,
    GO BEARS!!!

    I’ve been lurking for a while – or just working too much – my first comment in probably several weeks SORRY. Anyway, loved your energy on the show today. This is the Gary that turned us all into VANIACS!!! QOD: #1 WLTV!!! #2 IDEAS IN FOOD…

    Just because I don’t post doesn’t mean I don’t love this site and I try to visit at least every two days to catch up…..

    BTW, what’s the daily countdown on your dry-erase board? I’ve noticed several comments about it and a lot of us are curious. Besides Jets pre-season, what could be happening in mid-August?

    Hey GV,

    I have been a wine.woot fan since its inception. I have bought around 7-8 different offerings from woot. Some of them have been absolute gems and some have been clunkers. I will give the monkey a try when it is offered next Monday.

    WLTV is still my favorite though………… :o)

    Hey gordoyflaca,
    The Wine Spectator videos generall have substantially higher production value than WLTV. Not saying I don’t love Gary, I do, and I watch every day and submit an intro when I can… However, without altering the format, WLTV would benefit tremendously from some basic 3-point soft lighting and better audio. Better audio could be achieved by either using lav mics or flying a shotgun over Gary just out of frame. Would make a *HUGE* difference. Oh, some sound dampening material in the room would help too.
