Don't Bogart That Post!

Dearest readers,

So sorry dear readersI didn’t mean to exclude and/or alienate anyone from the two previous posts. I assure you there are not terribly interesting, just a couple of videos Taube and I made some years ago. I password protected them because I hadn’t obtained Taube’s “okay” to put them out there for all to see. I had intended to only leave it up there long enough for A-Bone to see them, then take them down. Then work or laziness got in the way and there they are still.

I am ticked by the amount of hate mail I received for password protecting those entries. Scores of people unwilling to ever post comments on this site were quick to send meanmails straight to me over the weeks following the post. I honestly didn’t even know scores of people were even reading this.

Your anger and venom has invigorated me. So let’s make a pact. I won’t password protect any more posts, and you’ll start commenting on posts when you read them. Even the tiniest, “Yo,” is enough to brighten my day.

Also, I still never cleared broadcasting of the videos with Taube, but if you asked him, he’d probably tell you the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring would cipher out “elporto,” if you really wanted to see the videos. And if you do, I beg you to watch them in chronological order. Otherwise the video you watch second will be a real disappointment. Like, The Phantom Menace disappointing.



P.S.: Please to enjoy a small section of “The Monkey What Stole Our Treasure” by The Chicken Dancer (oil on canvas, 1996)

    I’m Taube and I approve these videos. Although, it should be known that the dude crashing a lot in the first video was my stunt double and he sucked at surfing…

    I like the new Yosemite masthead pic. It makes me want to go back – with Anastasia and Nigel, natch. (Shout out to Ugly Betty!)
