In media, Long Island is often painted out to be a New York City suburb. While technically true, Long Island has also been at the epicenter of many cultural movements over the past century. It was an important to the development of aviation during the early 20th Century, as Charles Lindbergh lifted off from Roosevelt Field in 1927. It was the place of origin for countless winners of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards. Hip-hop, punk rock, classic literature, and stand-up comedy all have roots in Nassau and Suffolk County. The Great GatsbyThe Godfather and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind are just a few of the influential works that use Long Island as a setting. 

Our website was launched in April 2016 with the mission of celebrating both the history of Long Island and what's ahead for it. Its main focus is on entertainment, from providing content that is entertaining, to featuring Island-related events and personalities. While written by Long Islanders -- past and present -- the content is intended for readers all over the world. We leave the politics and hard news to the other publications...unless they happen to be entertaining.

Simply put, there is No Place Like Long Island.

Chris Jericho has millions of fans around the world for a variety of reasons. Within the world of professional wrestling, he has been a world champion and is almost certainly a future WWE Hall Of Famer. As a musician, he is the frontman of Fozzy, which released its seventh full-length album, Judas, last year. As an author, he has written four best-selling memoirs (including 2017's No Is A Four Letter Word). And all of this is without factoring in Jericho’s success as an actor, podcaster, television host, or Dancing With The Stars contestant.

Coming up in October 2018, Jericho will be hosting the inaugural cruise known as Chris Jericho’s Rock ‘N’ Wrestling Rager. I spoke with Chris Jericho in September 2017 by phone, and highlights from that chat can be heard on the Paltrocast.
