What happened to Tommy Duncan and Sticks of Fire blog?

The image below is a 2005 TBT article I still have about the Tampa blogger scene. The big boy was Tommy Duncan. He stopped blogging around 2008, and was never seen again. Here is what Creative Loafing said about that era:

"The 40-something blogger founded the most-often-cited independent Tampa Bay news blog, Sticks of Fire, in Feb. 2004, and the site, without much financial assistance from advertising, is still going strong today with a stable of more than a dozen regular contributors.

In 2005, Duncan was featured in a tbt* story about the young lions of the local Internet. Today, about half of them have fallen by the wayside or (in the case of famous sexy blogger Rachel Moran) moved to New Jersey. Duncan keeps on posting. The local digital scene has grown, but he's not sure it has improved in quality."


  1. Yo Tim. I had to take a cab here in New Port Richey. Tom's car broke, tranny I think. Anyway this guy left a lot to be desired about driving. Had a problem staying in one lane. How is your business? Getting any better? This cool weather should help you. It always helped me when I was still driving. Seems like it was just yesterday but it has been close to 7 years. A lot has changed I guess. Good luck in your affairs. Larry 157

  2. You got out at the right time. The economy tanked and its been a long ride back.

  3. Sticks of Fire seemed to me at the end as nothing but a whining liberal upset with everything about President Bush, Iraq war, Sarah Palin, etc. Don't miss it at all.

    Your blog has more Tampa news than he ever did.

The Great American Solar Eclipse

I watched the solar eclipse from Clearwater, Florida today. I was home recovering from walking Pneumonia. Believe me, I am sick. I slept most of the night and morning so I had the energy to go outside. I am glad I did. We did not get a totality but it was 91% coverage. Let me tell you, that last 10% is hugh. It never did get as dark as I thought it would get but I did get a good view with a pair of welders glasses.

This event had a historical connection for me because I was able to film the total eclipse of March 7, 1970. What is sad is I can't find any films of that eclipse on YouTube. I guess its sad to think I am that old. I am sick, however. I do need to recover.

Violetta Storms is a top glamour model

My favorite model (she is from Italy) may return to the Arizona Shootout. That will be more of a reason for me to return, as well. I spent time in studio (a hotel suite) over two days to get awesome images. She is beautiful and down to earth. She has also been one of the most successful nude models in the last ten years. Enjoy this video.

Violetta Storms in a blue bikini

Violetta Storms seems to be of some interest on this blog. I have no idea why but I have found another image of her in a blue bikini. I am sure her fans will enjoy it. I have many of her nude. I will post them some day.

Tim Fasano is alive!

At the doctors office today my blood pressure measured 123/66. The diastolic was actually a little low! You people who are not emotionally involved (like what is left of my family) have no idea how significate this is.

The hard work of resistance training and metabolic cardio conditioning has brought me from a state of congestive heart failure to a super charged heart!! I am beating this diseases ass and it fells wonderful.

The best part is that I am just reaching the stage where I will be able to turn this up several notches. The best is yet to come. I am now on my way to a different life.

My goal is next month to go on a solo backpacking overnight hike in the Green Swamp of several miles and camp out. I now know I  have the physical conditioning to do this. You have no idea how great his feels.

I am celebrating life!

Uber driver arrested Saturday night for exposing and playing with himself

A Springfield Uber driver has been arrested after a woman reported that he exposed and touched himself while she was a passenger in the vehicle. Police arrested 29-year old Adam R. Stevenson. The 30-year old woman and her husband told police the incident happened last Saturday just after 3am. She says they called Uber for a ride home from downtown Springfield. Stevenson picked them up, and while driving he exposed and touched himself while the woman was in the front seat. Police arrested Stevenson yesterday for disorderly conduct. Management at Uber says Stevenson will be removed as one of their drivers.

RETIRED..what did you expect?

I have retired from taxi driving for good. I turned the keys in and walked away from 24 years on the streets. In a way, like Ronald Reagan said, the taxi business walked away from me. Anyway, I am home and doing nothing but getting caught up on a bunch of personal stuff. I am loving it. Check out this video about how I spend most mornings now.

I have applied to work for Lyft and was approved, of course. I should be getting a new car next week and will be driving for them. Ride share has become the new taxi companies and they deliver what I am looking for.

I have two monthly checks coming in which are enough to live off of. So don't worry about me. Its just that I was not exactly ready to retire but the circumstances gave me no choice. It does feel good, by the way.


United Cab got a toll violation from the State of Florida. Their cameras took a photo of the tag of a taxi not paying the toll, and sent it to the company. The low resolution image made it difficult to read the cab number and they thought it was me. Impossible. I never use the toll roads.

We are only talking $3.50. I went in to contest it, and sure enough, the tag number did not match mine. I am 378 and it was 338. I was off the hook. How bout that!

United Cab does not like getting these things from irresponsible drivers and charge a $25 handling fee. They are in the cab business, not the toll business. I was ready to pay. (Note money order.)

I was very glad it was not me. Just an oversight.

I want to state for the record United Cab has been very good to me over the years. Everyone from the owners to the back office has been beyond great. That is why I have stayed all these years.

One of the things you can count on if you work late night is guys wanting a sure thing. It is getting late and they have not hooked up, so they are ready to be taken. In short, they get very, very stupid.

I had a call at a Tavern about 2 AM and this guy from out of town wanted to get laid in the worse way. At this point, he was ready to pay for it. If you want to pay for sex in Tampa, you have come to the right town. This area is loaded with everything from strip clubs modeled after petting zoos, old fashion bordellos, all the way to cheap peep shows. What ever you want.

 He was counting on me to show him where the action was at. That is one thing taxi drivers are good for, finding where all the vice is at for the clients we are hoping will actually give us a tip for accommodating their illegal activities. We can be a live version of NightMoves magazine published in the Tampa Bay area that detail where all those kind of places are at.

I have had fares not really want to go to a whore…
