    His Horological Highness, the Lord of Luxury, the Wizard of Watches, the Satirically Sardonic Sampler of the Superlative, Paul Pluta, the Man Who Plays Archibald Chesterfield III on the Archie Luxury Channel on YouTube Talks Private Club for Luxury Watches, More

    Recently, in the NY Post, an article appeared mentioning the opening of a watch club for members only, catering to luminaries and moneyed types, in New York. Perhaps, we are at a turning point in the world of luxury goods. Maybe, in addition to buyers wanting something rare, they also want it sold to them in an ambience of ultra-exclusivity. To discuss what is taking place, we welcome back Paul Pluta, the man behind the controversial YouTube personality Archie Luxury. Mr. Pluta is a compelling commentator when it comes to the world of expensive watches and luxury goods. On his channel, and in character, he is a voice for those who want insight into fine timepieces, delivered with a heaping dose of irreverence. Yet, make no mistake. Paul Pluta is a true luxury goods devotee. Additionally, he is rather prolific, with what he says are thousands of videos on YouTube. Paul joined us from Australia and gave us his insight on what might be a new phenomenon.

    Since 1996, people across America have started their morning with Al Roker. The co-anchor and weatherman for NBC’s Today has informed millions of Americans about what to expect, climate wise, from all regions of the country. Over the years, Mr. Roker has been live on the scene, from some of America’s worst natural disasters and storms. The veteran TV morning show personality has written a new book. An author of eight titles, he says this is the first one that is weather related. His new book is titled The Storm of the Century: Tragedy, Heroism, Survival and the Epic True Story of America’s Deadliest Natural Disaster: The Great Hurricane of 1900. The book features the stories of the people who lived in the town of Galveston, Texas where the worst reported storm in American history occurred. Away from his media career, Mr. Roker gave us a very personal look into his life in terms of his weight challenges. In 2002, he got gastric bypass surgery and millions of Americans witnessed his weight loss from the procedure. We ask him about that, why his Weather Channel show Wake Up with Al was cancelled, as well as some other stories from his career.

    Odds Honcho John Avello, of the Wonderful Wynn Las Vegas Sportsbook: Talks Mayweather Fight, NFL, Wynn Sports Betting App (Nevada Only) and Potential Presidential Betting?

    1. This weekend could very well be Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s last fight. He will enter the squared circle against Andre Berto. 2. The NFL has its first full slate of regular season football games this Sunday. 3. It was announced this week that Wynn Las Vegas will host the first Democratic debate on October 13th. Who better to speak with about these things than Wynn Las Vegas Sportsbook manager and CYInterview regular John Avello. During our conversation, Mr. Avello revealed to us that in a few months, residents and tourists of the state of Nevada will be able to bet sports on their smart phones, with the Wynn’s own sportsbook betting app. We also discussed whether a person might be able to make a wager, in the future, on who the next President of the United States will be. The head oddsmaker was as interesting as always when covering these topics.

    Multitalented Serayah, Fox’s Empire’s Tiana, Opens up about Her Success, Stardom, Working with Taylor Swift and the Future

    It is not common for an unknown actress to land a major role on a TV show, particularly one that becomes an overnight hit. For Serayah McNeil, playing singing sensation Tiana, on the popular Fox TV show Empire, is remarkably her first role. Known to her fans as simply Serayah, she now wants people to recognize her for all she is doing away from the urban music TV drama. With the opportunity to perform in front of a live crowd at the BET Awards in June and to work with A-list music star Taylor Swift on a variety of projects, it is only the beginning of Ms. McNeil building a multidimensional career. Serayah was also with Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and many other big names at this past weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards. Many people in show business will be placed in one genre and many times are not taken seriously when they try to do something else outside of what is perceived to be their specialty. For Serayah, playing a music star on television has led her to now performing as a music star in real life – think Jennifer Lopez as Selena and then as a pop star in her own right.

    "Rowdy” Roddy Piper, one of the great professional wrestlers to make his name back in the 1980s, a golden age of wrestling, if there ever was one, has died.

After his release, I spoke with him in-depth about the state of the WWE at the time, being featured in the HBO Real Sports segment about pro wrestlers and drug usage and a variety of other topics. In 2005, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

    In 2013, the NY Post ran an article titled Meet The Rolex Romeos. The story featured a variety of successful men trying to attract women’s attention with their luxury wristwatches.

Back in April we first welcomed, to CYInterview, watch aficionado and luxury goods commentator Paul Pluta - the man from Australia behind the famous YouTube/Internet personality Archie Luxury [see here]. Paul is back to provide his analysis on this phenomenon and to answer the question if what a man wears on his wrist will attract women. Additionally, he discusses which watches, if any, appeal to females. You will have to listen to the audio to gain that insight. It most certainly makes for entertaining listening.

    Hunk a Hunk of Burning Elvis: Steve Connolly Keeps Elvis Alive – Show at Four Queens Hotel on Freemont Street in Downtown Las Vegas a Must for Everyone, Elvis Fan and General Music Lover Alike

    Elvis Presley will always be known to the world as The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Few entertainers will ever reach his level of notoriety and accomplishment. Then there are the Elvis impersonators. Steve Connolly is arguably the most celebrated Elvis impersonator in the country. He has received numerous accolades and opportunities owing to his portrayal of the King, both in Las Vegas and across the country. See our photo with him above with an Elvis portrait he painted. As the only Elvis entertainer to ever have a show running daily in a Las Vegas Strip Casino, at Bally’s Las Vegas, and endorsements from the likes of former President Bill Clinton, Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler, current presidential candidate Donald Trump and even Elvis Presley’s conductor Bobby Morris, Mr. Connolly’s show, titled Spirit of the King, really does bring Elvis back to life. The show is currently at the Four Queens Hotel located in downtown Las Vegas, on Freemont Street. With over 5000 performances impersonating the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Mr. Connolly’s appearance, vocal range and impressions of Elvis are spot on. If you are not an Elvis fan before seeing his show, you will be one after.
