Buffalo's Most Amazing Shopping Bag


Buzz joined the crowd at the Undy 5K this morning in Delaware Park, our sneakers squishing in the rain, and if there was one thing more amazing than the giant walk-in colon, it was this giant shopping bag they gave out, which we made sure to grab.

Yes, you read that correctly. It says: "Immunological Fecal Occult Blood Test." 

We can't wait to take it to Wegmans!

Rare Figure At Broadway Market Inspires Shock and Awe

The drama eclipsed the Oscars!

A photo of the Broadway Market that Buzz posted the other day captured a rare and elusive figure and took Facebook by storm.

An actual nun!

With nun shoes! (As one Facebooker marveled.)

That is a sight you never see any more. Spotting a nun made Buzz's experience as a Paczki judge that much more memorable.

Another nun and we could have had a Mel Brooks movie. No Mel Brooks production was complete without a couple of nuns.

No Broadway Market production is complete without them either!

Two in one shot! Too Hot to Handel and the Chopin Bag.

These people are the Mozarts of bad puns! Wonder what they'll have next time we stop in.

We'll be Bach!

They're Putting the Tree Up

The Buffalonians shouldn't be up!

They are putting the tree up at The Buffalo News. That is it pictured above!

And at St. Vincent de Paul on Main Street, where workers were scurrying around this morning with tabletop trees and strings of lights. By the way here is a picture of Vinnie D's world-class tchotchke collection, so you may begin your Christmas shopping early.

It is never too early for Christmas as far as Buzz is concerned. For instance today we cheered the First Christmas Cookies Being Baked By a Rock 'n Roll Artist.

Election Day, the new start of the Christmas season.

You may eat!

 

Terrapin Station Knows What You Did Last Summer

Wheel

Thinking about Melvin Seals at the Tralf tonight got us thinking about Terrapin Station which had a poll about what was the best thing about summer. It is too late to vote. The polls are over with, just like the summer! But you can enjoy their findings.

I'm loving it all, whatever comes: 27 %.

Laughter, sunshine and gratitude: 7.4 %.

Checking out the free music everywhere: 6.4 %.

Twirling in my big skirt: 3.2 %.

Hanging out in the parks: 1.1 %.

Mixing new hookah flavors: 7.4 %.

Playing my guitar and singing: 11.5 %.

Oh, heck! Here we were all looking forward to fall and Christmas and this poll was just too funny. Now all we want is summer.

Sunshine daydream!

Two Heads of '80s Hair Are Better Than One

We start this week with a feeling of well being because not only have the Bills carried off a massive victory, but we were visited last week by two classic heads of '80s hair.

One was Sarah Brightman, whom Buzz beheld at UB's Center For the Arts.

Brightman

The other, Bernadette Peters, whom Buzz had the honor of seeing at Kleinhans Music Hall. Here is the exquisite and exclusive Buffalo News photo, taken by Harry Scull:

Bernadette

What marvelous manes! Having them both here within days of each other is rare, like a solar eclipse.

Clearly Buffalo's planets are lined up right!

 

The Last Desperate Day of Summer

Summer

The problem isn't that the temperatures will soon be falling. Buzz likes the fall, with the cider, and the stews, and the yummy Oktoberfest ales.

The problem is that today is the last day you can officially wear your summer clothes!

So what if the clouds are gathering. Buzz is running around in a retro sleeveless pink dress with a bow in the back. Ridiculous any time of year, but in a couple of days it will be prohibitively ridiculous.

A colleague on another floor is sporting an outrageous Hawaiian shirt.

Technically you can still wear summer duds to Curtain Up! tonight. And we plan to.

Seize the summer clothes!

Seize the day!

Falls Casino Shows Artist in Her Underwear

Teacher, teacher, we declare, we see Diana Krall's underwear!

She should sue!

Someone apparently sneaked into her dressing room and snapped her in her, ahem, foundation garment. Either that or she had a little too much of that Frim Fram Sauce and walked out on stage mistakenly without her blouse, and a photographer took advantage.

Whatever, Niagara Fallsview Casino is using the picture to promote her concerts there in early October.

Rare Photo of DJ Reunion

DJreunion

 

Buzz's new friend "Doctor John" Bisci, voice of Club 747, passes along this picture of himself and his fellow disco DJs gathered for a charity reunion, the Hustle for a Cure Charity Event at First Niagara Center on Friday night.

Priceless! If this is not a clip-and-save picture Buzz does not know what is.

This explains Doctor John's stealth flight into Buffalo.

Thing like this do not happen by accident!

Disco DJ Makes Stealth Trip Back to Buffalo

 

Adding sparkle to this rainy Buffalo weekend is "Doctor" John Bisci, the DJ of the long-gone disco Club 747, immortalized in the above video. Bisci now lives and works in Las Vegas and he was in town on business. 

Doctor John is not to be confused with the bluesman Dr. John! Originally, Bisci told Buzz, he worried when he was told to take that name, because the New Orleans bluesman already had it.

Then he reasoned that the musician Dr. John's real name is Mac Rebennack. In any case, Dr. John from New Orleans has been gracious and has never protested.

Bisci had to take a nickname, he said, because all the deejays back then had nicknames. There was Charles "Captain Disco" Anzalone, Charlie "CC" Cimino and someone else he mentioned to us who went by General Mills, hahahaha!

We liked how Bisci, who is now pretty dapper (he's at right, under the banner, in this pic)...

... sees the humor in the situation.

He said: "The first night I announced I was Doctor John, I was laughing so hard."
