When life gives you lemons, you go to Secaucus.

This evening I will be headed to Secaucus, NJ to speak with Joe Scarborough of MSNBC's Scarborough Country. It will air at 9pm Eastern tonight.

UPDATE: Just got back from Scarborough Country, no passport required. It was actually pretty fun. I met a lot of great people over at MSNBC and found Joe Scarborough quite easy to talk to. As I mentioned in the comment section earlier today, not sure if it will air tonight or some time later this week. Also not sure if it will be on TV, the web or both. Sounds like probably a bit of both. I'll keep you posted. One regret about the interview: when mentioning some other cool vlogs people should check out I mentioned Ninja and Tiki (which are both dope), but forgot my two FAVORITE shows, Ze's The Show and, of course, The Richard Show!!!

    THis drama with Rocketboom is only going to open up more and better opportunities for you. Hang in there.

    I go on vacation, and my favorite video blog gets cancelled!

    I cant believe no one has tagged you yet to set up the next RB

    Conservative Joe Scarborough?

    I would have rather seen you interviewed by Keith Olberman, but it should be interesting...

    Good Luck!

    I hope it shows on NBC in my area! I also hope this gives you a good opportunity to clear up all the speculation.

    Good luck, m'dear! And, btw, I included a little dedication to you in today's Galacticast episode:

    Don't take any crap from that ass-eyed conservative hack...

    Another note,

    Just found out that although we are taping the interview tonight, it may play a different night this week. Just fyi! Thanks, friends!

  • At 1:48 PM, Blogger Ghost said…

    definitely I will support Amanda! Amanda is the rocketboom. No others!

  • At 1:56 PM, Blogger Ross said…

    I hear the cavity search needed to enter Scarborough Country is pretty invasive.

    Is your passport current?

  • At 3:57 PM, Blogger Brangelina said…

    Watching all of this has been more fun than the Jen/Brangelina triangle I’ve covered over the past year.

    …Hmm, Since Mr. and Mrs. Smith was the cause of Brad and Jen breaking up, I’m putting my money on Robert Scoble as being the cause of Rocket-unboomed.

    It all started with that Rocketboom interview you did with Scoble about his departure from Microsoft. I could see it in your eyes. I think you're going to PodTech.

    Hey Amanda - when are you and Andrew going to appear on Jerry Springer?

  • At 5:32 PM, Blogger WO7 said…

    Hang in there, act quickly, don't lose your momentum. Keep us posted.

    (of course - I've lived in California almost my entire life - so what do I know...)

    Hang in there Amanda - windows are opening all around... You're young, gorgeous, smart & spunky - the world is waiting!

    Yay, New Jersey. I'm only 20-30 minutes from Secaucus ... but alas I'm working out of the White Plains, NY, office tonight.

    If you decide to produce your own show, I couldn't afford to quit my day job (got a wife and two kids to support) but man, I'd love to be your editing monkey.

  • At 9:25 PM, Blogger Steven said…

    I saw Andrew Baron on a video of and wow is that guy whiney. His voice could cut butter. If what you say is in fact true Amanda then this guy is a real smuck, why is he treating you like this? Andrew Baron appeared on and people spammed the comments section on twit saying that the guy was not liked. He won't be the next host of rocketboom for sure.

    Will you get money for you share in rocketboom or income from it?

    Hope you have great success in anything you do in the future and let us all pray Andrew gets Syphilis.

    What the hell does this mean?

    If you ever looked to the archives, you may have noticed that there is one episode that has always been missing: the first episode. There is a reason why.


  • At 1:17 PM, Blogger Amanda said…

    This is Andrew's way of saying, I think-- no one can say for sure when it comes to matters of communication with The Baron-- that the first show I did sucked. I haven't seen it for a while. It probably did ;)

    Strange ex-partner you've got there...

  • At 2:57 PM, Blogger Brandon said…

    I will be keeping everyone posted on the new Rocketboom. (Rocketboom 2.0)

  • At 3:10 PM, Blogger Amanda said…

    I've been working with Ari and Endeavor since early May. This is not new news. It has been posted on for months. I emailed a few of the bloggers who wrote about this as if it were some new development to explain that it, in fact, was not... but no one has updated their blog posts to clarify. I guess they just want the fiction to continue to spread, because it is more interesting than the reality. It's really pretty disgusting.

  • At 6:46 PM, Blogger Brandon said…

    I didn't realize that you had posted that information on altough I have been there a many of times I didn't find anything but pictures and your resume. O well it doesn't really matter what matters is that as soon as Blogger is back up and running I will update my blog stating that this was not old news. If there is anything specific you would like me to put email it to me and I promise I wont twist your words around or anything of that nature.

  • At 8:12 PM, Blogger rockethenry said…

    Here's hoping you are keeping your head up out of the muck and looking to the next bright thing to turn up for you. You have been one of the brightest things for me for many months. I look forward to seeing much more of you in the future in our big, expanding world.

  • At 10:39 PM, Blogger BionicBuddha said…

    From the blogosphere to a prime time slot on MSNBC...that sounds like a launch to a succesful career segue. Nice Work!

    You are NOT Rocketboom, you are Amanda Congdon. Start the Amanda Congdon show. It will quickly draw more viewers than Joe Scarbrough's.
    Ideas and talent will always attract money. There is way too much money out there and not enough good ideas, and not enough talent. You already got two out of three.
    I'd love to have you on my show any time

    Amanda babe, can't wait to see what you do next. Meanwhile, I snuck across to RB and captured their latest clip and mashed it - slowed it right down and it looks like the slider in the face-guard could be the new girl Joanne Whatserface. I added a music track too. I think it an improvement.

    the latest Rocketboom

    careful! I used to work in the outlets. it's addictive! give your parents your money or you'll never make it home.

    good luck and enjoy!

  • At 12:44 PM, Blogger Jabin said…

    it ok that you left of Ze.. he doesn't want any of the "new viewers" that would come from such a plug.. we can keep it for us in the know :)

  • At 10:03 PM, Blogger Amanda said…

    Hey Howard,

    Nah, that wasn't me. Hope that satisfies the inquiring minds!!!! ;)

  • At 3:34 AM, Blogger welcome to wallyworld said…

    Amanda babe, I wish you'd tell us what you're doing next. And this time I hope you make some real dough. The offers must be coming in thick and fast. Can't you just give us a hint?

  • At 1:56 PM, Blogger WO7 said…

    Very nice job on MSNBC, Amanda rules!!!!!
