Time, The Universe and Anklebone

So, been thinking about doing a show about time and the universe because I've have been increasingly becoming obsessed with the whole thing. So much the the theories I read just make no sense, or it is beyond me. Whatever. Probably will never get around to it.

I did have a good idea for a show and while I've been tempted to do it as soon as possible, I'll have to wait until the weather warms up bit considering there will be some traveling and site seeing involved.

Here is the second Anklebone Story. Still not quite what I've had in mind. The artwork was all done by my wife Dawn, who is not only doing the artwork for the next one but writing it as well.



And I hope to see you all on March 13, 2009 in Woodstock, IL to see Goin' South! More on this later!

Willy at Nascar!

From last Sundays show, here is On The Road with Willy. This time Willy's World travels takes him a Nascar!

Idea In The Shower

I know it's a cliché, but idea's do seem to come to me in the shower, as it sis today. I have a new idea for a Sid poker lesson. I think this one is pretty funny. Odd to use the adjective for describing a joke. Anyway, part of it came as I woke up this morning, but the real meat of the idea happened in the shower as I was washing my . . .

Anyway, here is last weeks Manchester Gallery. Terry and Pam do a wonderful job in putting these together.

Who Are the Raelians?

This is a link to the podcast that inspired the Anklebone Stories in the most recent episode. It's but the Skeptoid, Brian Dunning and is just a few minutes long, so it is worth a listen.

Who Are the Raelians, and Why Are They Naked? (Skeptoid #59) -
The Raelians are naked and they worship space aliens.

Anklebone Stories

Sometimes and idea hits and the excitement of that idea is so overwhelming that I can not help myself but go ahead and start the production of that idea, whether I am ready or not. Such is the case with Anklebone stories. Even the name, Anklebone Stories was just used because I didn't didn't take the time to come up with a good name.

The idea was simple. I'd take a real story, a bizarre, strange, almost unbelievable story and tell it was I was reading a children's book to a group of youngsters. While I read, artwork, supposedly from the book, would be shown on the screen.

Well the idea came late in the week, and since the show was only days away, I really didn't have time to get drawings together, and really rushed the whole thing. I didn't even like the way I told the story. It was one of those situations in which, after I took apart the set, packed up the camera and lights, sis I realize that my reading of the story was crap.



And now I've just completed the video for a second Anklebone Story. I am afraid to watch the footage, fearing that is is no better than the previous work. I do have artwork this time, thanks to my wonderful wife, Dawn.

Yet, I will edit this down. I do confess that I am the wrong person to do this but, if not me, who? I hope everyone who watches the show realizes that everything about Coffee With Jeff is a work in progress and a learning exercise for me.

This weeks coffee with be about the Raelians!

Peace!

Get the Knack no more

If you have not heard, Doug Fieger of the group The Knack passed away on Feb 15, 2010. He was 57.

Many consider the band a one hit wonder and that I can not argue. My Sharona is the song the band will always be known for. Looking backing, the band has a couple of popular songs off that first album, Get The Knack but only the big one lives on.

I still remember that sleeve for the single. (Kids, if you don't understand what a single was, ask you parents). The thin white shirt that you could almost see through was a welcome site for a teenager.

The song was played and played. It was huge.

I saw them on the tour that followed their huge success.

You could not order tickets for a show like this online, because there was no online back in 1980. And for some reason, which I don't remember, tickets were not available at Ticketmaster. I had to go stand in line at the theater box office. I don;t even remember where they played.

Here is the thing, I promised a buddy I'd get tickets and I didn;t have enough cash so I actually coulded out change, Quarters and Dimes to get enough. I got in line, which as very long and I was wearing a yellow Linda Ronstadt shirt. I was standing right behind a couple of girls. I can't remember if they were cute or not but I did remember a bee seemed to like my yellow shirt and the whole time we waited, this yellow bee would not leave me alone. The great part of that was it gave me a great excuse to talk to these girls, and they seemed to take the treat of a bee sting with good humor.

I got the tickets.

I don't remember too much about the show except there was no light show. I think they were trying to do the whole "Beatles thing", trying to even do shows like those early Beatles concerts. And I remember at the end, for a encore, Doug came out and acted like he was upset about they way people thing they are trying to be The Beatles, and after a short speech, the band played A Hard Day's Night with huge grins.

The bands anticipated follow up, "...But the little girls understand" failed to live up to the hype and the band quickly faded from public eye. Every now and then, they woul dpop up with a new album but I never heard a song off any of them.

So, Doug, R.I.P as they say.

The Roaring Twenties Intro

Here is the intro to an old TV show called The Roaring Twenties, which aired on the ABC network in the early 1960s. Dorothy Provine starred as Pinky Pinkham, the singer at the Charleston Club, in this hour-long series that dealt with newspaper reporters from the fictitious New York Record, such as Scott Norris (played by Rex Reason), Pat Garrison (played by Donald May), Duke Williams (portrayed by John Dehner), and copy-boy Chris Higby (played by Gary Vinson). Mike Road, previously on NBC's Buckskin western series, played police Lieutenant Joe Switoski.

Salem Cigarettes Ad

There was a time, long ago, when cigarettes ads were common on television. Even the Flintstones did an ad for cigarettes. You can find that one all over the internet. This is one for Salem Cigarettes.
