Update With A Gumby Photo From Melanie

Thanks to East Village blogger and MAD commenter, Melanie for sending in this Gumby shot! He looks trashed in it! Great photo Melanie! Check out more of Melanie and her photos at her blog: "East Village Corner...Musings By Melanie."

Okay, I just wanted to post an update thanking everyone for being patient and waiting for the February 1st debut of the new blog.

The new blog still needs a little tweaking, but it's looking good and "Boris" outdid himself with the banner art!

Other big news is I've finally memorized my cell phone number!
Having achieved this goal, I'm thinking of trying out for the Special Olympics, but you'll have to stay tuned for that.

Okay, just wanted to stop and say hi and see if anyone's left out there! Have a great week, keep your feet on your legs and your hands in your pockets. Stay high, let your freak flag fly and for fuck's sake, please, don't eat the daisies. Cheers and beers!

At the risk of appearing like someone that has absolutely no life at all.....Yes, I'm still here!

@Mykola Mick Dementiuk: It's a great shot, thanks to Melanie for sending it in! Good to hear from you!

@Professor Dungpie: Thanks for still being here! Have about 3,000 beers and the new blog will appear!

I've been busy writing but now I'm getting back to the normal state of affairs. I have another idea for a novella and you know how well I do those, with you and Melania making an appearance, still mulling with the idea but I'm about to start writing. Stay tuned folks, Marty and Melanie are about to be immortalized, that or totally shrugged off. Haha! Glad that your blog is falling in place.

"would" I shouldn't type this early.

I think Cardboard Box Man put him in the trash ...

January 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

Mmm, Gumby braaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiinnnnnnnzzzzzzzz!

January 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGoggla

I know Gumby, I watched Gumby, I grew up with Gumby. That, sir, is no Gumby.

However it does remind me of the cartoon from an old poison control PSA.

I think Jaws could use some of that "Java Pop" I see in the picture. A coffee soda, well damn they think of everything. And rather curious about your next venture as well,,,,,wonder if Java Pop is available down here,,,,still with you along with the rest,,,for the long haul.

@Clacky: It's dangerous to type half-asleep, but even more so when you're drunk!

@GENE: You're probably right, I told him not to hang out with him, but he wouldn't listen, probably because he doesn't have ears.

@Goggla: Now that's scary...aaaaahhhhh!

@DaveW: Maybe it's his evil cousin! I gotta look for that poison PSA on YouTube!

@Al: Glad to see you're coming along on the next venture, I'd hate to lose my co-pilot!

January 11, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

Anxiuosly awaiting the new site. I read MAD religiously every night!

January 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPeter

@Peter: Thanks so much! I always get paranoid when I take a break that I'll lose the whole audience. I really think you'll like the new blog and I'm excited about it!

January 11, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

January 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSpike

January 12, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermeleah rebeccah

@Spike: Yes they will, if everything goes according to plan!

@meleah: Last year my phone went bonkers and I had to go to Verizon and the woman looked at me like I was nuts when I told her I didn't know what my phone number was!

January 12, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

It looks like it's still in good condition. -Julia
