Update From Gumby!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Okay, all that white space is there because Gumby has no arms and therefore can't type (the little freak!) I tried telling him this, but noooo, he had to be the big man and insist. Anyway, he failed, so now I have to do all the work!

I just wanted to put up an update about when my next blog is going to start. I'm pretty sure it'll be the first week of February. The blog itself is pretty well all set up, but there's a reason for the wait and I'll disclose it when I announce the blog. I hate to be Mr. Mysterioso, but I can't talk about it now.

I also need time to think of a bank of ideas for it, so I can start off running with some fun ideas and things to do.
"Boris" outdid himself and did the best banner I've ever seen, truly genius artwork! Thanks in advance, "Boris," you hit it out of the blogosphere ball park with this one.

So, I appreciate those of you who will stick around. Whenever you take a month off from blogging, you lose some people and I really appreciate those who stay loyal and keep coming back. You're the best and I thank you!

And now, what better way to kick off a weekend than Joan Jett covering one of Alice Cooper's best songs? Happy weekend!

So......You are kind of like Gumby's boy friday! Like many stars from the past....Gumby doesnt seem to realize that he isnt the draw that he once was! Dont get me wrong......Im a big fan and he did some great work in the past but what has he done lately? Tell Gumby to get his mind right and be thankful that you have taken an interest in his life and appreciate what you do for him or her or it! Gumby can be replaced by Pokey!

@Professor: Gumby is humbled by your comment and would like to buy you 3,000 beers!

@GENE: Ha ha ha!

You're saying Gumby didn't hear you? Well he has no ears.
I'm curious as to the interest rates at your bank of ideas. (groan)
You realize this is just another reason to dislike January.

January 6, 2012 | Unregistered Commentercsp

As AHNOLD would say, "I'll be back! Looking forward to the new blog!

January 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKatrink

@csp: And groan I did! January will pass quickly, like a greased gallstone!

@Katrink: Thanks, I appreciate you coming back to check it out!

Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it.

@rr: Perfect quote and I thank you, as always for supplying it!

January 6, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

Been to any dark bars lately?

January 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAl

@Al: Nope, taking a little break from the bars to recharge for the new blog!

January 6, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

You do need a break Marty...your liver must be in a straight jacket after the last two years...

January 7, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJaws the Cabbie

@Jaws: My liver, my mind, my body is all thanking me for this break! But in about three weeks I'll be back at it!

January 7, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

You can never go wrong with my "Light Of Day" 'Co- Star' Joan!
Enjoy the recharge.
Good talking to you yesterday.

January 7, 2012 | Unregistered Commenter"Boris"

@"Boris:" Great yakking with you yesterday, Daddio! I am enjoying the recharge and of course...TO JOAN JETT!

@ Raginrr & Marty; There's got to be a morning after... If we can hold on through the night... We have a chance to find the sunshine... Let's keep on looking for a bar....

January 7, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJaws the Cabbie

Hi Marty,Hi Gumby---life is gooood

January 7, 2012 | Unregistered Commentertehennessey

@rr: Beautiful quote!

@Jaws: That's the problem, there's always a morning after! Why can't there just be another night after?

@tehennessey: Nice to see you got your computer back up and running!

January 8, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

Marty--it was great to see you last night..sorry Uncle Waltie did not come. Your story about your friend and Kiss was priceless!!!Can't wait for the new blog.

January 8, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

Doesn't Gumby know there is an app for voice..so he does not have to use hands..I think.

January 8, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

But, where is Pokey?

January 8, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDaveW

@Melanie: Wonderful seeing you and hanging out last night, a great time! I keep Gumby shielded from apps, as neither of us really understand how to use them!

@DaveW: Pokey's up on top of the refrigerator, he makes a rare guest appearance here from time to time!

January 8, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

Oh man! Okay, fine. I'll just wait until February. *sigh*

@Reggie Thistleton: Ha ha ha! Great clip! Thanks for the linkage!

On December 30, 1989, Art Clokey died. Where's your God now Gumby?

January 10, 2012 | Unregistered Commentercsp

can't answer for gumby...but maybe...just maybe over tebow in that cloud halo...

rr

January 10, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterraginrr

@rr: It's a combination of both! I have the diet Mountain Dew in the Morning and the Budweiser at night! They compliment each other well!

@csp: Gumby's an atheist and was always pissed that Clokey didn't share the royalites.

January 10, 2012 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

ah...which is it?...motherfucker?...i sorta mean...like give it up!...is this or is that?...

rr

January 10, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterraginrr

@rr: It's either one or the other, how much clearer can I be!
