One Week To Go!

Okay, one week from today the new blog will be posted. The first day will just be a couple of introductory blogs and then the next day I'll go out and live blog from a location in New York. It's been a nice break, but I'm starting to get itchy to come back.

I'm always fearful I'll lose the whole audience I had by taking a break. The internet can be a fickle place, so I appreciate those of you that have popped back and been checking in.

And I've gotten some things in the mail and thought I'd put them up today and here they are in no special order!
Britta sent in a photo she took of something you can't find in New York City: A cigarette machine from an Irish Pub. It brings back memories of when I used to buy packs of Marlboros at a bowling alley when I was a juvenile delinquent. They cost fifty cents a pack back then, now they're up to 13 dollars a pack in New York and it's illegal to smoke almost anywhere in the city!
Gene sent in this ad from a newspaper in Baltimore: A Marty Party...and I wasn't invited! Those stinking bastards!
And proving that he really is a brainiac, Jaws sent in this piece of art entitled: "Waiting For My Next Bright Idea." Yikes!
And last, but certainly not least, Gidget sent in this picture of a new Gumby product. Hmmm...I guess they thought "Pokey" was too obvious! Don't forget to listen to the "Secret Weapon" on Woody Radio, where "Boris" picks the tunes and DJ Gidget spins them!

So I’ll see you next week, looking forward to interacting with all of you again!

Thank God it's a short wait to the next blog. Mid-January to March sucks. Nothing is going on anywhere. Very boring time of the year. I hate it ! ..... need some NYC & Marty hi-jinx. You should go piss off that 7-11 guy again !

Yup, that's me all right...The Brain that Wouldn't die, The Evil Brain, They saved Hitler's Brain...pick your pejorative.

@GENE: I hear you, I hate this time of year too! We'll see what I can do to liven things up a bit!

@Jaws: I'd pick a pejorative, but then it would never heal!

@Mykola Mick Dementiuk: Gumby rubbers, that's almost redundant! See ya next week!

@MAD: Hurry up and code faster.
...and of course the Pokey ones were nixed, Trojans (now) hate horses.

I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.

@rr: Beautiful quote, I've missed seeing those every day!

Gumby Tickers...
"That Shit is Rrrrrrough, Son!"

@"Boris": Ha ha ha! I just watched the Gumby video for the 11,987th time!

January 26, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

I thought that men didn't want women to laugh at their man-parts? Yikes.

January 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBritta

@Britta: It's for the woman who wants a little Gumby inside of her!

January 26, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

For those who would say Gumby's physique adds to the media perpetuation of unrealistic ideals of slimness and body image; I remind you that he refers to himself not as thin, but ULTRA-thin. Be that as it may, he also does admit that he is a pretty slippery character. Despite his appeal to those who are thrifty, Gumby's brand may not be for the over-ticklish.

January 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commentercsp

Miss you Marty. OMG those Gumby rubbers.
@Mick..very funny!!!

January 28, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMelaniie

@csp: I'm starting to think that Gumby is the Karen Carpenter of the claymation world.

@Melanie: Thanks, I'll be back soon!

January 28, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

Been silently checking the progress - looking forward to the big day

Another sleepless night...spent watching another Korean Messiah on TV. His sign language interpreter, however, was quite attractive....she kept motioning to me to jerk off repeatedly...sit on some pointy object....or auto-fellate. I'm really quite exhausted now.

January 29, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterUncle Waltie

@JAZ: I appreciate you and everyone else hanging in there! I'll do my best to make it worth the wait!

@Uncle Waltie: Well...all I can say to that is...SIP AHOY and sleep tight!

January 29, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

When I can't sleep I just watch reruns of King of the Hill or listen to George Noory on the radio - what channel was that Korean religious thing on? LOL.

Marty you should do an automated countdown ticker on the website counting off the hours to the debut.

January 29, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDaveW

@DaveW: I wish I was capable of such things! The closest is me saying it's about 52 hours away, thanks for hanging in there!

January 30, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

And, just like that, Gumby's innocence vanished...

Looking forward to the new blog - the city's been so quiet without you!

January 30, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGoggla

and the days trickle doooowwwwn....to a precious fewwwww.....

January 30, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterdark1p

@Goggla: Whoosh, Gumby becomes Pokey! Thanks for the nice words, I'm really nervous, but excited to start the new one!

@dark1p: I'm back to work, behind the scenes, the about one and a half to go! I really appreciate you and everyone for hanging in there!

January 30, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

I miss surreptitiously reading your blog during working hours. ONE MORE DAY! Can't wait.

January 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKatrink

@Katrink: Thanks so much! Less than 24 hours! I'm starting to get stage fright! *opens beer*

January 31, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

Beer is the universal cure for all kinds of jitters. Go ahead, self-medicate!!!

January 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKatrink

@Katrink: Sound advice, thanks! And cheers!

January 31, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

Good luck with tomorrow's new adventure. We need someone to cheer up the mid-winter slough of despond! Can't wait to see what you're up to next.

January 31, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteronemorefoldedsunset

@onemorefoldedsunset: Thanks, I appreciate that! I'm starting to get a little nervous now though!
