William Beem Vegas Photography

WBeem or Beem has been a Vegas message board regular for many years. He also runs an Orlando Blog in addition to this Vegas photography site where you can purchase his work very reasonably.

This from William-
"I started photography as a teenager. My interests include Travel, Landscapes & Wildlife. I'm looking forward to adding to my gallery here and would love to have your feedback. I live in Central Florida, but enjoy traveling to different places to try and capture something enjoyable. Please check back occasionally, as I intend to add new images gradually and hope you find something to enjoy."

I take pictures but what wbeem does is on the professional level.

Luxor Insider

I've been following Luxor LV's updates on twitter for a while now. Luxor Insider is a blog written by the girl that handles the interactive marketing for Luxor. You gotta hand it to the big corporate structure at MGM to allow something like this to happen and not try to over regulate the press coming out of the joint. In fact it surprises me that more large corporations or businesses don't embrace blogging, twitter and other means of communication to get thier message out. It's pretty much cheap advertising and much more timely and personal. There's so much to like about social networking as a networking tool, thank goodness the corporate bigwigs don't get in the way and let it fly. Especially in this case where you feel like you get that on the ground feeling of what is really going on behind the scenes as it is happening and not just some glossy web marketing campaign which would be much more impersonal.

Just recently there are a ton of pictures of the pyramid covered in snow. I'm digging it!

Fine Homes Las Vegas

Fine Homes Las Vegas is not what you might think by it's title.

Sure there is Las Vegas Real Estate news provided by Vegas Bill but it also has on the street Vegas pictures, videos and scenes from current Vegas events. Many Vegas websites are done from people that have a real love of Vegas (like this one) but may not be on the scene. Vegas Bill provides stuff from the place we all love so much first hand.

Encore Opening

Two of the better (if not best) Vegas website operators Hunter Hillegas and Chuckmonster have unveiled EncoreOpening.

Encore Opening is a website that continually refreshes with a gazillion photos and planned coverage of the sister property to Steve Wynn's signature Wynn Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

There is a countdown timer and tons and tons of current pictures with more to come.

Free Vegas WiFi Spots From LVA

Las Vegas Advisor provides a list of free WiFi spots around Vegas.

From the site-"While plans to turn the whole city into a "hotspot" are still in their infancy, there are plenty of accommodating locations around town where you can grab a coffee, sip a cocktail, catch the game, eat wings, smoke a cigar, or order sushi, while surfing wirelessly and for free on your laptop. Here they are."

Here's the link-
Free Vegas WiFi List From LVA

I'm still wishing someone would do a map of the strip with pins on the free WiFi locations.

Vegas.com Douchebag

Check it out from Vegas.com-
"Take the Douchebag Quiz to figure out if you can cut it as a Vegas Douchebag:

  1. Do you know where to get the best spray-on tan?
  2. Do you like to show off your nipple ring in public?
  3. Do you know the difference between beer and malt liquor?
  4. Do you wear your chain inside or outside your shirt?
  5. Do you own more than 5 different trucker hats?

If you answered "fo sho" to any of the above questions, you may have what it takes to be a true Vegas Douchebag.
