Building burn, people die, but real love is forever...

HAPPY DEVIL'S NIGHT!

"Brothers"

Yesterday Mike and I went to Astoria to the Museum of the Moving Image to attended a tribute to Jerry Nelson.
Mr. Nelson passed away earlier this year, and this event was filled with joy, some tears, a suprise visit from Snuffy, and some laughs.
Since less than 300 people were there I feel like we got to be part of something rare, something beautiful...

Instead of telling you every little detail, I'm just going to share a video of Jerry as one of my favorite characters; Emmet Otter...

Old Lyrics - Beautiful Pallet

Beautiful Pallet

Don't hate me
Is what I had to say to her
What's my choice
Cradle it again
I wanna live in you, my
Crazy-train
I know you're not using me
So come and join the beautiful pallet

Can't get over me
The Hell you say
You man's over there
Not far away
I know I'm fun
Get that mess
Outta your head
And letitgo and join my beautiful pallet

You know I'm in love you you...

Suspended deep in a sea of black...

Creative Types - J. San Giacomo

I've got some catching up to do on the "Creative Types" section of the blog, I'll have a couple over the next week or two...  So I'm starting with an OLD friend...

J. San Giacomo

I knew him as Jeremy...  Back in 1981-82 I was a weee little puppet maniac who had trouble fitting in in school.  Especially in my grade and in my classroom.  I had one buddy J.J. (R.I.P., friend) who shared an obsession with comic strips, mostly Garfield and Peanuts, but we had little other in common.
Then the new kid came to school.  That was Jeremy.  We connected quickly.  We both were nuts for Muppets, Dark Crystal, E.T., and so on...  And we both fancied ourselves artists.
Then as soon as he moved to town he moved away.
20 years later I was living in Brandon FL, and he was in St. Pete.  Never knew he was there...  This was pre-Facebook!
And now there is a Facebook.
And J. San Giacomo and I have re-connected.  Two weeks ago I almost closed my Facebook.  Glad I didn't!

So he's an artist now.  Just really seems to be getting in the game.  And he, like all of us, is in  a money crunch.   So I'm sending you his way...  To his YouTube page, check out his awesome Zombies.  And commission one.  DO IT NOW!  I promise you won't be disappointed!

The OTHER Muppet movie from 2011...

"Being Elmo"


I realized this morning I never even really mentioned this amazing movie here yet...
Much like "The Muppets" that came out last year and brought the most famous puppets back to the big screen, there was also "Being Elmo"...
A much smaller film, with a bigger heart though.
The film documents puppeteer Kevin Clash's career and is simply inspirational.  It's one of those little movies I keep re-watching for a smile...

Old Lyrics - The Best Hooker In Town

The Best Hooker In Town

I was only 13 years old
And didn't know how to do,
How to do those things they say
Make a man out of you

So a few friends of mine
Who were a little older than me
Took me to see a woman
And paid to make a man out of me
She said: "I can be your baby tonite,
Or maybe two.
Don't worry 'cuz I don't bite.
Unless you want me to."

She was the best hooker in town
She spun my teenage world around and round
The best hooker in town
She knew I'd never done it before, and showed me all around

It's been ten years since then,
I'm going gray at 23
Was at a diner the other nite
After 3 AM

And a friend of mine pointed out a waitress
Who had been staring at me
Discreetly I looked over
And her head turned away from me

And I heard those words in my head:

"I can be your baby tonite
Or maybe two.
Don't worry 'cuz I don't bite
Unless you want me to."

She was the best hooker in town
And there she was filling drunken college boys coffee
She was the best hooker in town
But she's got bills to pay, and the world keeps spinnin' around
