The vine club

Tracy Weekdays 6 - 10pm

Hi, I'm Tracy,
Like most of the Vine DJs, I've been all over, living in South Dakota, Nebraska, Texas and more in my life.  I settled in Napa about ten years ago and have managed to plant a few little roots in my time here.  I've been working at The Vine for ten years as well and have covered almost every shift, but I like the nights best!  The best way to describe working at the Vine is that its like a family.  And in my case, that's not just a metaphor.  I met my husband here and we work together every day.  We also bring our baby, Violet (she's the one in the picture), and sometimes our dog, Cooper, to work with us every day.  If you come to my office, you will have to step over board books and dog beds!  When we're not at work, we like to go for long walks, watch movies and play in the garden.  I've also got a bit of an obsession with entertainment gossip, which tends to pop up a lot in my show!  But mostly, I just like playing Sauvignon Rock!

Well Don't I Feel Like A Twerk

There's nothing like the internet to make one feel like the most gullible sucker on the planet.  I tend to be pretty gullible anyway (something my husband loves to exploit), but the internet can make even the biggest conspiracy theorist look like a fool.  Case in point:  "The Worst Twerk Fail EVER" video on You Tube.  I still haven't figured out how to embed video on this blog, but you can check it out here if you somehow managed to miss it.  (How's that rock you live under?  Comfy?)  Anyway, I posted this video on the Vine Facebook page (haven't liked us yet?  You should, we give away free stuff!  Check it out!) last week.  I wasn't the only one posting the video either, its gotten over 9 million views and counting and was the topic of conversation on numerous talk shows and at dinners all over the country.  Even my husband, who tends to dismiss viral videos as stupid things people who have to much time on their hands make for people to waste time watching, had seen it.  It had everything, a current dance craze, destruction of property, and fire!  Plus, no one got hurt, so you didn't have to feel all icky about laughing.  It was a total win-win situation.
But it was FAKE!!!!!  Jimmy Kimmel revealed on his show last night that he and a stunt woman had created the video a few months ago (pre-Miley twerking at the VMA's even) and quietly released it on the internet to see what happened.  Here's the whole reveal.  
So now I'm not sure how to feel.  Duped, tricked, gullible, stupid.  Why can't I be one of those people who can spot a fake video on first view?  On the other hand, I don't think I woudl want to be one of those people.  I mean, if the video or picture in entertaining enough, who cares if its fake?  It still made me laugh!  Maybe I should go hang out with this guy.  He seems to get me.
