The ceiling is the roof

// Las Vegas, NV

I saw this on my flight to Vegas:

He'd been unable to find a Taiwanese barbecue sauce near Burbank? Has he never heard of the San Gabriel Valley – or the internet?

"Maybe they'll have it in a city that's 3.2% Asian!"


I saw this while flipping through "the luxury lifestyle magazine of the Venetian and the Palazzo":

Sheldon Adelson straight jacked a Vegas competitor.

Caesars Entertainment gotta build Venice Atlantic City in response.

Trivia Question Idea: How many replicas of the Eiffel Tower/Statue of Liberty exist?


The Palazzo has neither a fourth floor nor a 13th floor – nor a 14th floor that's actually the 13th floor.


I'll be in Vegas for the second night of the Pac-12 Tournament, and I'm considering purchasing tickets to see my UCLA Bruins.

For some reason, I can't access SeatGeek via my hotel's wi-fi.

I can access SeatGeek via my mobile's LTE, and I can access StubHub via my hotel's wi-fi, but I can't access SeatGeek via my hotel's wi-fi.

Get Out

Previously on Adam Riff™ (July 2015):

In less than a year, I have moved someone else from New York City to San Francisco, and then from San Francisco to Los Angeles, packing and unpacking all of his stuff by myself.

[New York to] San Francisco was Murphy's Law run amok.


Back from Los Angeles after moving [redacted] for the fourth time in two-and-a-half years.

For San Francisco to Los Angeles in June 2015, I only had one day to pack everything in his three-floor loft by myself.

Seven months later, [redacted] wanted to move from his three-floor loft in Los Angeles to a penthouse two floors up in the same building.

One year later, I moved everything in his penthouse into storage because he wanted to move out of his building, but isn't sure where he wants to move next. His lawyers are advising him to move to San Francisco.

Entry Level Adult

Did you know that Paramount Pictures only netted $25 million in 2015 and didn't net ANY money in 2016?

Viacom
After recording a $25 million profit for 2015, the company's Paramount Pictures unit last year remained at the bottom of the rankings by posting its first calendar-year loss ($364 million) since THR began its annual calculations. The drop is even steeper if one includes a $115 million impairment charge for Monster Trucks.


MVP (Most Valuable Partner), the latest Shark Tank rip-off, features Rob Gronkowski, Kevin Durant, Terrell Owens, and Antonio Brown as sharks.

Shark Tank Rip-Off Idea: College interviews with a panel of five alumni. Interviewees seek more "You're in"s than "I'm out"s.

Shark Tank Rip-Off Idea: Hollywood bidding wars over rights, screenplays, independent films, et cetera.


Kevin Smith:

I've pitched a #Mallrats sequel series to 6 different networks only to find no takers thus far.

They must have all seen Yoga Hosers, because why else would no one throw money at Kevin Smith when seemingly every IP with brand recognition is being revived?
