  1. hey wbw..hope all is well….I just came back from a business trip…i must have had about 10 diet cokes..can’t sleep..I have gained like 5 lbs. over this CW change and BD and BB missing….mobius is on a roll….i almost fell outta my chair tonight

  2. BrunelloBob is dead, has been found to be a hoax by Scotland Yard. BrunelloBob is the author of the best selling book” The Golden Road of Unlimited Devotion for Brunello Lovers” . The left-handed drinking brunello lover was recently found on CellarTracker and at a LWS. Although over the weekend, clues of empty brunello bottles were found by his home. Clue hunting proved infectious and within a few days had become an international phenomenon. One recent WLTV episode played backwards revealed “Yankees suck forever” in Bob’s voice. On the Cindy album, Sangiovese Fields Forever…the record albums reveals BrunelloBob dressed as Grand Duke Leopold II, in bear feet, however his toes were purple from a labor intensive feet stomping of grapes. Detectives were able to piece together another important discovery tonight that BrunelloBob last post was written during an anxiety attack. While unknown to his friends, BrunelloBob, due to the CW midnight relocation controversy (See Cleveland Browns – 1995) had experienced a “New Coke” flashback from his childhood.

    Well known Cindy poster Barolo Dude claimed that while sitting in a Piedmont vineyard while waiting for UPS truck deliver, that he in fact was the Grapeman. BaroloDude had experienced a Governor Sanford moment walking aimlessly in the Italian Alps. BaroloDude experienced an identity crisis due to a hoax reported to him, that the San Francisco Giants were moving back to Harlem in NYC.
    ^
    Calls to both BrunelloBob and BaroloDude went unanswered. The Replanted CW blog will be complete when Blubber Loon (Yanks Suck) and Road Double (winner) return to join up with their CW and WLTV Forum Friends. While this is probably creative writing by the poster and can not be confirmed by TMZ press time, CW all-time post leader BuffLou may have shared with the forum that the return of these two long time CW favorites would be better than Amarone on CW.

  3. Thanks C2~!
    You guys rock btw…and thanks AFK for this forum… I like the links posted at the top… kinda like having a menu to choose from.
    And I’m so glad BBob is alive in this world at least! I think he should make a comeback… how about a nice Michael Jackson Thriller video?!! :)))

  4. MrHill:
    I wouldn’t do it. WL was pushing that stuff a month or so ago, I forget the price. It’s pretty much a no name. You can get very good, rated 04s for another $15 or so, or wait on the ’05 deals that are coming. Great RdM is available for $20-$25 that I would trust more.

  5. @ bdude , check out uncorked if you will, I know it’s not high end , but is it any good , is it a go ?

  6. Space Truckin
    performed by Deep Purple with a Ruby Rim

    We had a lot of fun on Cindy
    We always had a ball at nine
    Meeting all the groovey people
    We’ve rocked the internet so far
    We danced around the fire with Lou
    We’re space truckin’ round the web

    Come on, Come on, Come on
    Let’s go Space Truckin’
    Come on, Come on, Come on,
    Space Truckin’

    Remember when we rode the bus
    And Mobius led the way
    We’d move to that well known reststop
    And everynaut would dance and sway
    We got music in our solar system
    We’re space truckin’ round the stars

    Come on, Come on, Come on
    Let’s go Space Truckin’
    Come on, Come on, Come on,
    Space Truckin’

    The Cruiser that we rode was moving
    But now we’ve got a new machine
    Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah the freaks said
    Man, Bill the Cat can really swing
    They got music in their solar system
    They’ve rocked around the internet
    They dance around the fire with Lou
    They’re Space Truckin’ everyday

    Come on, Come on, Come on
    Let’s go Space Truckin’
    Come on, Come on, Come on,
    Space Truckin’

    Come on, Come on, Come on
    Let’s go Space Truckin’
    Come on, Come on, Come on,
    Space Truckin’

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, space truckin’
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, space truckin’
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, space truckin’
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

  7. I really can’t fathom any reason worth alienating thousands of loyal customers over a “transparancy” or taming a board. Demigod is a profits guy, you don’t risk profits unless you cornered by larger circumstance. IF Winery A, B and C refuse to sell to you because you might liquate THEIR brand on Cindy for half and then have dumbass JohnR publicly destroy your wine, Who would want to sell too you. They would bounce to WTSO, which have had great deals. We all know peeps used to shill for WL, this could be the ultimate shill move, corner everyone on the WL forum. I do like the MASSIVE CINDY SALE which has NOTHING I would remotely consider buying. The silence from WL is really interesting.

  8. @WBW:
    Hi! How are You? I am fine… 🙂

    I’m assuming, for purposes of this discussion, that the demigod Vaynerchuk is not evil incarnate and that he has a reason for what he does, other than simply smashing the hopes and dreams of the Cinderella forum members.
    x
    So, let’s call it “eliminate”, rather than “tame”, the runaway discussion. Once the forum is moved to facebook, it’s off the Cindy offer page. From there, it’s easy enough to eliminate the link and sever the community completely from the business end of Cinderella. What happens from there is of little consequence.
    x
    Heck, this is a conspiracy theory based on incomplete facts, not scientific law…
    x
    BTW: I did not mean to imply that the Cindy discussion was offensive, just that it got away from it’s original purpose. I had as much to do with that as anybody. Yankees Suck is my line, repeaded ad nauseum.

  9. @ Bbob, how would moving to a Social Networking site (Facebook) tame the discussions? Since that was the intent of shutting down Cindy in the first place, not moving us to WL. To me, FAcebook would completely disrupt ANY type of wine discussion b/c most people wouldn’t contribute & thus fade away as they don’t want their bosses, coworkers, family, exes, noseybody acquaintances, and friends to know how much & what they are drinking at any given time. And if anything, the WL forum is 100 times more offensive than anything ever posted on Cindy. In fact, it’s moderators are actively breaking many of the terms of agreement… and in theory, would much quicker dissuade wineries from selling to WL. Just sayin’

  10. @Johnr: Thanks! Keep me posted on the date for the NC Cindy tasting in December. Appreciate the invite…

  11. hey BBob… this Vin Santo is somewhat “atypical” in that it was so dialed up… so if you don’t like Vin Santo traditionally styled, then this is the one to try. But its not cheap (80 for a 375ml)… and the vintage is running out online… 2001. K&L might still have one. I think they direct import RdiM

  12. @JR: I’ll drop you an email later from home. I can’t link off this page from work.Thanks. Hope you get something out of the referral? 🙂

    RE: The discussion assignment, I keep saying there’s something we’re not being told. My current, operative theory is that the Cindy board just didn’t pan out the way the demigod wanted it too. It was supposed to be a spot to discuss (read: help sell) the current Cindy offer. It degenerated into a discussion about hokey, baseball (how the Yankees Suck), deals on other sites etc. I think the motivation for the change is an effort to “tame” the run away discussion.
    x
    But ask me again tomorrow, I’ll have a new theory….

  13. BBob-send me your email and I will sent it to Buckley, it is a referral only service. * the only person I shill for is my lovely wife

    luddite, you need to come to the NC cindy tasting in Dec, you can’t be too far, we are only 30 from the VA line!

    I was thinking, maybe some of the wineries were refusing to sell to WL/Cindy because of the comment/Community section? WTSO has much better offers since March and April, when most people agree that Cindy started to throw up shit.

  14. johnr: What do I need to do to get on Buckley’s insider list? Will just signing up on the website do it?
    x
    BTW, did you just shill for JJ Buckley???

  15. Castelloooo!!!!!!
    Bring your fiance over, we’ll buy her a drink!
    x
    Whatever happened to: “We’ll never sell lower than the first time a wine is on Cindy”
    Not minding that they’re doing it (lower is always better), just that they said they wouldn’t. Making up the rules as we go along, I guess.

  16. @Johnr: Thanks for the recommendation and I am on Buckley’s list. Only bought twice so far as shipping to the right coast takes a week and can be dicey during hot or cold times. Also last I checked they didn’t ship to VA so have had to make other arrangements…

  17. I would really like to see this take off as the official Cindy posting site!!! GV you don’t need to apologize, we all understand its about biz, I hope that you can write a Chapter in the next book about loyality, as I am sure you have learned that loyality in biz is the most important relationship! You guys really need to get on JJBuckleys insiders deals, 90& of my buys are there, really nice stuff.
