If there is anyone out of the area that would like to see the story that ran tonight it is on the myfoxhouston website. The story from a year ago is there too! http://www.myfoxhouston.com/myfox/pages/Home/Detail?contentId=6467368&version=1&locale=EN-US&layoutCode=VSTY&pageId=1.1.1
    Reggie, if this is too much like spamming then by all means remove it!

    See ya round, and GO ASTROS!

  42. I like to write, but at present am short on words to express the empathy I feel for you and all that you have endured Reggie. I wish you increased success in your endeavors. I saw your ad in Time Magazine (I’m a subscriber), but I have to admit that since it was an advertisement I thought the other end of that website would be asking me for money and since I’m one broke sistah, I just steered clear *shrug*. Continued luck and success.

    Noticed it brought a few more new folks to the blog, including Mike the camera guy. Glad you made it back to Houston Mike, welcome home.

    Reggie – you touched a lot of people and made the world a slightly better place tonight. Enjoy that feeling.

    On that note, I’m hitting the sack. Good night all and sleep well.

    And hey Rollergirls, ever been to steak night at PJs? You guys should join us – it’s right there in the Montrose. Let me know if you are interested and I’ll give you the details.

    If you think you may get a substantial group together, we may have to talk to PJ about using the upstairs.

    Let me know and I’ll look into setting it up.

  74. The Houston Roller Derby ladies would love PJ’s! Hell, you can even wear your skates though going upstairs might be tough! PJ’s has a great deal: 2 huge steaks cooked on the grill, 2 baked potatoes, 2 salads, and a pitcher of beer for $25!!! You can’t afford not to go there!!! PJ’s is just 1 or 2 blocks east of Montrose on West Gray.

  97. I couldn’t survive waking up without coffee. That’s why I brew my own coffee at home – that way I can drink gallons of the stuff. Even bathe in it if I wanted to… not that I ever have or anything. But one tip if you ever try it, let the coffee cool down before getting into a bathtub full of it.

    Comment by Matt | May 7, 2008 | Reply

  98. Good morning all. Steak Night is all set up. We went in to PJs last night, strictly for business/medicinal purposes, and told him we may have a decent sized group coming tomorrow.

    If we get too many people, he said we can have the upstairs as our own if need be. I know we’ll have at least 10 people, but that’s not even counting anyone on this blog that may come… or the Rollergirls. Anyone heard if any of them can make it?

    Also, who from the blog is coming? Let me or William know today so we can make sure PJ (owner of PJs, obviously)gets enough steaks.

    We also told him about the Just Ask campaign, the new ad hitting publications and sent him to the website. He thought it was an incredible story and is excited to meet Reggie and the gang!

    Hi Reggie:

    I watched your story last night on Fox News at 9. It broke my heart
    to hear that people are sometimes afraid of you, but I would like for you to know that your courage inspires others. Unfortunately we live in a world where too much emphasis is put on looks, but it’s loving words and a caring touch that can heal broken hearts. There are many of us who think the world of you for standing in the face of the injustice of discrimination against people who are different. You have enlightened us about life with neurofibromatosis, and you are also making inroads for those with similar types of illnesses. Because of your sacrifice others will now probably be unwilling to make a difference.It may well be that you have discovered your purpose in life where others without neurofibromatosis have not. There are many people without neurofibromatosis who have scars on the inside that are just as prominent. I see a bright future ahead for you, and overall I would like for you to know that I am proud to have made your

    acquaintance.

    Hello Darlene,

    Thank you for your wonderful email.I feel great and I know this was
    meant to be. I would not want to anything else but what I do with my
    website and interviews. I could never give back what I’m receiving by
    the kind comments from those that area affected with NF,As well as those
    that are not affected by the disorder. Things will only continue to
    improve. Its the beginning of great things to come. I hope you will
    visit my blog and website. You can see in the photos things are
    different from last year. The smile tells it all.

    Make it a tremendous day,

    Reggie

  119. Our roller derby girls leave Friday for a match in LA on Saturday and Sunday and won’t be able to attend our little soiree. However, they have promised to join us once they return victorious from participating in Roll for the Cure. http://ocrollergirls.com/

    Good luck, Houston Roller Derby!

  121. Hey all. Somebody may want to change the heading at the top of the page on this topic. It still reads “tonight” for the interview.

    I’d hate for any of the new friends logging in to think they can still watch Reggie work his magic on Network TV!!

    And Lou, what did you say to scare off the Rollergirls?!? You invited them to steak night with Reggie , right? Not back to your place to look at your “etchings” I hope?

    Comment by Matt | May 7, 2008 | Reply

  122. All I said was, “William’s gonna be there!” Then they all started coughing like they were coming down with the flu or something. One threw up though I didn’t think she was sick. Those roller derby girls are pretty tough so something had to be really bad to nauseate them so thoroughly. I hope it wasn’t something I said!

    Comment by - the blogger formerly known as Lou | May 7, 2008 | Reply

  123. Actually, that worked out ok because William is required, by law, to stay at least 150 yards away from any woman in skates.

    It was the only fetish-based restraining order in Texas legal history.

  124. hey guys, Lou said back to his place. And he was offering all the wine they ladies can drink.

    Comment by Reggie Bibbs | May 7, 2008 | Reply

  125. Aah, you’re forgetting the loophole: skates AND fishnet hose. Just one or the other and I’m golden.
    The coughing and vomiting are actually manifestations of jealousy and desire, Lou. Ask your shrink. That is why I am duty bound to create more of me to effectively spread the love. Or disease, depending upon your perspective.
    Remember: don’t forget your safe word!

  145. Brian and Shelley,
    How are you guys doing? I just realized that Matt, William and I have been hogging the blog. I think we were hoping you would join in our conversation but I guess you’re a little shy. So, instead, how about if I join yours? Ok, here goes…do you know what kind of coddee I drink at home? No, it isn’t Starbucks, it’s Community Club New Orleans Blend with Chicory. It is so strong that you have to put in twice the amount of creamer to make it come out normal looking. After you’ve had a cup of that, you’re ready for the day! And, if you had any keft, you could use it as a furniture stripper! I like to have Starbucks at home too but I like my New Oeleans blend. Reminds me of, well, New Orleans.

  148. hey Lou I am good here I thought you might be mad at me I asked twice how you were doing and never got a answer but sorry I did not join you and Matts conversation but I like you and Matt as well I will join in next time also I would like to try your New Orleans blen coffee although I have never had anything that strong before and if you can use it for furniture stripper I may not have a stomach left afterwords and its nice to hear from you Lou

    Comment by Brian | May 7, 2008 | Reply

  149. Yea it’s real strong. Even with a lot of milk. When I make coffee at home it use the powdered creamer the good stuff and that works good. But when you have strong coffee milk works best.

  153. Yea Brian, that Chicory can really make a nice cup of coffee but it will be strong and bitter. Chicory is a root they used to “extend” coffee when it was in short supply and gives the coffee a nutty, bitter taste.

    The next big get together, I promise to make everyone on the blog that shows up a Cuban espresso. Provided we get together at someone’s house that has an espresso machine. A Cuban espresso is strong, sweet and will keep you up for DAYS!

    Got the secret recipe from a friend of mine.

    Not many places in town you can get coffee made that way, except a few Cuban restaurants. I can also show you guys how make a mean Turkish coffee and a fine Vietnamese iced coffee.

    Ok, I have to go to bed now and all of this talk about coffee is making me want an espresso. Maybe a shot of whiskey is what I need instead.

  179. On May 8, 1978, I started working for Preston State Bank in Dallas. Several years later, it was taken over by the Bank of the Southwest, the couple years later taken over or merge with MBANK, then my department became part of MTECH (computers) then was brought by EDS..this was in 1988. Today, I hit 30 years. Made it through countless lay offs (one two weeks ago). People I started out with, are no longer around, either they had quick or been laid off. In May 1987, I started my association with the Texas NF Foundation.

  229. #219: The only Prince song I can seem to think of right now is ‘Darling Nikki’, Reggie, and I am pretty sure that’s not it. There is the Bob Marley tune “I Don’t Want To Wait in Vain”, of which Ms Annie Lennox did an amazing cover, and I seem to recall a jam by Fishbone entitled “Waiting For The One Day”.
    I just watched the video and I must say I am quite impressed, Reggie, but I really think those three white guys in the band are holding you back. I really think we need a washtub bass player. Anybody on the blog play washtub bass, or at least open to learn?

  234. Reggie: When you strum, you can go both forward and back. It all depends on how fast you want to play. I’d say practice both fast and slow, using all strings most of the time. Right now the higher ones are more in tune than the rest, but I say do what makes the most noise!

    And thanks to Lou, I can’t shake the image of a 13-year old Lou (complete with full beard, even then I imagine) trying to march and play a washtub bass.

  235. Hey Shelley! You missed a great time last night. You’ll have to join us sometime.

    Do you play any instruments? A washtub bass perhaps?

    Actually, to play with us, all you have to do is have a love of making noise!!!

  236. That was fun and the next time I will have gotten better. When I get that down I will work on other instruments.

    Comment by Reggie Bibbs | May 9, 2008 | Reply

  237. Reggie:
    The easiest way to figure out when to strum is to just clap along with the song, and then just strum where you clapped. In a perfect world, you would use all the strings. But with the tuning of the beast right now, you would probably risk auditory damage if you used all of the strings every time. As far as which way to go, the answer is which ever way the spirit moves you. As long as it is in rhythm.
    And Shelley, Brian, Meredyth, and any other interested party, I have more noisemakers (what the sophisticates call instruments), so all you gotta do is show up and you’re in the band.
    And Lou, I’m talking about a ‘bass’ the instrument, not the fish.

  238. what all do you have William I used to have a Fender stratacaster but I lost interest and never played it but I think it would be cool to play with all of yall and would be a lot of fun

    Comment by Brian | May 9, 2008 | Reply

  239. I’ve got a Squier Strat, an old Korean strat knockoff, a 5 string bass, a 6 string acoustic with nylon strings, a mandolin, a trumpet, a flute, various kazoos, snare drum, xylophone, various rattles, kalingas, an accordion, various recorders and whistles, a tambourine, a rainstick, a didgeridoo, maracas, castanets, a mini steel drum. Basically a lot of different ways to make a lot of different noise. It would be very cool if you played with us!. You’ve seen the video; we need all the help we can get!

  240. Brian that would be a good thing. You will like it. I need to work on what William said. It is going to take a lot of work.

  246. Let Matt and William know what you want to play. How cool that would be if we get a large group together and play at camp.

    Comment by Reggie Bibbs | May 9, 2008 | Reply

  247. Yes! When is camp? We should get together a Just Adk orchestra and teach you all a tune before then. How cool would that be?!?

    And you mean the theme from Delivere3ance? Dueling Banjos? I’m not really sure, but I think it’s mostly C and G.

    Comment by Matt | May 9, 2008 | Reply

  248. Hey that’s it’s. Camp is this September. It would be perfect. do you know we can do a lot with this. Someone will learn that
    hey I never knew I could do this. I think it could help make a lot of people believe in them self.

  249. I would really like to learn how to play the mandolin I think they are pretty cool but I will tell you the truth honestly I have truely always wanted to learn how to play a steel guitar I think they sound beautiful I have always loved a steel guitar and always loved the way they sound

    Comment by Brian | May 9, 2008 | Reply

  250. Brian: I’ve always loved steel guitar too, but have never played one.

    Maybe we can learn at the same time?

    I am so glad to see you all expressing interest in making music, it’s a great way to unwind and have a little fun.

    Comment by Matt | May 9, 2008 | Reply

  251. Matt the only down fall for me though is I am completely deaf so I cant hear anything but that would be cool if we could learn together I have always loved the steel guitar they just sound awesome I want one so bad its not funny I just think they are the neatest thing but I also really would not mind learning how to play the mandolin I like those to they are really neat as well

    Comment by Brian | May 9, 2008 | Reply

  252. Brian that is something you want to do, and I bet you will be very good at it. Oh and Brian if you make it to camp we are going to try to get as many as we can to play something. The only thing is Matt is always trying to make people write. I have to write all this stuff down.

  255. Beethoven was completely deaf too. If you can feel the vibrations of the music, you can learn to keep a beat.

    I know we can find something that will work for you. But when we figure it out, don’t ask Reggie to write it down! ; )

    Comment by Brian | May 9, 2008 | Reply

  264. If you are serious all you have to do is have your mom talk to Cindy at the Foundation. Let them know about your diet and I know they can work something out. You can do that a head of time.

  266. Ok, late night for me and I’m on my way to bed. BUT, just wanted to let Reggie know we at PJs (where we had steak night) and that PJ was so happy to meet you. We had told him about the Just Ask thing and what you do and he was very moved by it. He even mentioned that when we were at Steak Night that there was a lady there that saw you on Fox 26 and wanted to say hello.

    Problem was, you were already mobbed by “adoring fans” so she didn’t get the chance to say hello!

    Don’t let it go to your head Reggie!!

    Good night everyone.

  267. Reggie;
    I realized after we split Thursday that I took all the picks. That’s ok: a good chance to rip some skin off your fingers while you learn the music.
    Brian: if you want to learn the mandolin, show up at the next jam of Mr Bibbs and His Hootenanny (or whatever the band is called) and you will. And, once again, we are still in search of a washtub bass player, particularly since I disabused Lou of the notion that it was a fish or beer.
    Shelley, you strike me as a kazoo player. Show up for the hootenanny and work your magic.
    Reggie, I will see you tomorrow ( or today. damn bars) for the Parade. I understand if you have to bring Lou with you. The Deliverance chords are as follows:

  268. Matt, I remember someone wanted to meet me. I would love to have met her. Just her her to push her way through all the other fans. Say hello to her for me if you see her before I do. And too late it already went to me head.

  278. Hey Reggie, sorry we missed you at Lou’s after the parade. I hear you had your autoharp and were ready to jam! I didn’t stay long anyway. I ended up leaving William and Lou alone together at about 9:00 – so Lou’s house is probably nothing but a pile of rubble by now.

    Also wanted to say my girlfriend Kimka really enjoyed meeting you. She said you were a really great guy… but then again she didn’t get to talk to you THAT much! ; )

    And Happy Mother’s Day to everyone on the blog it applies to!!
