This is a non-serious message (sorta).

Tomorrow morning, starting around 7am, I am getting together with a few friends to roast a whole 150 lb. pig.

Nope, tis not organic.

Just plain old, fresh killed pig.

In fact it’s in the butcher’s icebox at my grocery store right now.

It’s my friend Andrew’s Birthday this week. So we’re starting a new/old tradition round here, and throwing a big bash on the beach of a local lake with a pig roast as the center attraction.

I say “new”, cause this is a new tradition for me with Andrew and my friends here in Grass Valley and Nevada City where I work and live. And I say “old” cause Andrew threw this party as a summer birthday bash for himself in his previous life when he used to live in Southern California.

It’s called the MegaFest.

It’s gonna be fun. No, itís gonna be MegaFun.

I am gonna get lots of pictures and we’ll be shootin some video too.

If you want get live updates as this crazy day unfolds, then you can follow me on Twitter. I’ll be posting updates from my cell phone (as long as my sobriety allows) to

Don’t know what Twitter is? Then watch this 2 minute video explanation. Twitter’s pretty simple, and it’s a great way to connect with and follow people’s activities from your cell phone (or web browser).

If I can get a good shot, I’ll post a picture of the pig in the butcher’s icebox sometime this afternoon (we’re going over to pay for it around lunchtime).

UPDATE 4:00PM Pacific Time: Here’s a pic of me and the pig…

Shamus meets "The Pig" in the Butcher's Icebox

The rest of the pictures I’ll put up next week. And you’ll want to add me as a friend on Facebook, cause I’ll probably put the photos and videos of me and the pig up on Facebook first.

Now I don’t expect anybody to get nakyd or anything like that. But hey, you never know what’s really gonna happen. So make sure you follow me on Twitter and friend me over on Facebook.

Oh, and this message wouldn’t be complete without my Shameless Sales Plug. So here it is. Yes, I am going to be partying tomorrow, but next Monday it’s back to makin more buckaroos for me and you. So go get yourself a copy of my Persuasive Selling Skills Audio Program. It’s almost as much fun as my pig roast, and will certainly put more sales bux in your pocket this summer!

Sell with Pride,

Shameless Shamus Brown

P.S. If you are wondering what happened to the video earlier this week on my blog, it got removed from YouTube (where it was hosted), and I don’t know why. It was a video from another YouTube user, and they haven’t said why they took it down. I hope you gotta chance to see it before it got yanked cause it was pretty hilarious!
