New Year's Eve...

I should be in bed... It's too early in the morning, but can't sleep.
And that's OK.
I've been thinking about this past year, and a few years before this one...
And although there have been hard times, I have to say the good out number and outweigh them.

I'm grateful for all my family, and friends, and extended family, and cats...
I'm grateful for the madness that makes me who I am...
I'm grateful to be alive...

So Happy New Year to those who read this, and may 2012 be amazing for you

- JB

ZAPPA on ZAPPA!!!

A few years back I made a Frank Zappa puppet for my Aunt Desi and Uncle John for Christmas... They were the ones to turn me on to Zappa when I was a teenager, and I haven't turned back...
John went to see Dweezil Zappa's show "Zappa Plays Zappa" last year and brought the puppet with him and managed to get Dweez to sign him!
I was pretty stoked when Desi showed me!

"Have you seen the Muppets?"

YES! I HAVE!






People keep asking me if I saw it and what I thought of it...

So I'll keep my review short and simple...



Loved it! Was the first Muppet movie that had the feel of "The Muppet Show" and it was full of that Henson Heart. If they keep moaking movies like this then they can't fail!

Can't wait to see it again...


I was lucky enough to have some great friends and my awesome girlfriend come with me to see it opening nite!
