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.

Angel The Rescued Kitten

I have a new and wonderful friend. Her name is Angel. George found her on his way home at 3 in the morning running around on the elevated span of highway 19 in Clearwater. He pulled over and pulled out of a storm drain. He took her home and knocked on my door. He has two cats and wanted me to keep her overnight until he could find a neighbor to take her.

I fell in love with her.

She is now my best friend and keeps me company for I live alone. It's not fair that so much cuteness can be crammed into such a little thing.

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.

Nude Night begins tonight in Tampa

Nude Night starts this evening and runs through Saturday. Nude Night is held every year in Tampa in an art warehouse north of Ybor City. Each year has a theme and in 2011, the theme was body art. One of the models was Clearwater beauty Daisy. She was painted up and walked around the warehouse with many of the other models. There were paintings, photography, and seminars on body art.

A month before the show, I had the opportunity to do a nude shoot with Daisy in a studio suite. She was professional and put a lot of effort into it so I could get some killer images for my book. One of the images of her nude, and other models, can be found at this link Glamour Models. If nudity offends you, do not go to it.

Guavaween is back in Tampa - Voodoo carnival

Guavaween was a festival held in Ybor City the Saturday before Halloween. It was a costume party, rock concert, parade, boob flashing, drunken disorderly festival. It fell out of favor a few Yeats ago but it is now making a comeback with professional promotions handling the event. Tonight the theme is "Voodoo Carnival" and it should be wild. Cab drivers make money and have fun

Lots of costumes and booze with beautiful people walking around highlighted this event.

Thong Thursday is back

Great thing view from the front. Her Jersey is inside out.

Leave the snow and party at Clearwater Beach for some fun

Come down to Clearwater Beach in the Tampa Bay area for some fun in the sun. While you are shoveling snow up north, you could be working on your tan - like these girls. Bring you golf clubs and your bathing suit. Clear blue skies and mid 70's await you. You just might mingle with these hot bikini babes. For sure if you go to Hogan's Beach Club. That is where all the hot people are hanging out.  Don't forget to ride in a legal taxi cab and not the illegal Uber or Lyft

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.

Tim Now Drives for LYFT...and loving it!

After 24 years of driving taxi for United Cab of Tampa, I am now driving for LYFT. Good call, I think. Ride share has taken over and the taxi companies are going the way of the pay phone and the corner video store.

Violetta Storms bikini shoot

Here is the beautiful Michelle. There is a possibility she may be at the spring shootout. Lets hope so. She is a pro in every way and represents Dave Hall and what he is doing well.
