Radio Review

Tom Cherry's Old Time Radio Show
Just wanted to take a moment to reflect on another great episode of Tom Cherry’s Old Time Radio Show from this past Saturday. Little Women brought out one of our best audiences ever, packed with first time visitors, our beloved regulars, and an abundance of dear friends! When a great audience meets a great cast, you can feel the magic in the air! Plus we learned about “roachkickers” when we played It Pays to be Ignorant! Thanks again to Sean Orlosky, Missy Donahue, Sean Heline, Bob Green, Katy Wolfe, Angela Gick, Judy and Jerry Cole, and our special guests, Lauren Donahue and Dana Jones for being part of a truly memorable show! Already looking forward to our next show in August! Plus we take the show back on the road this Saturday as we perform at the Delaware County Senior Center at 1:00pm!

It Pays to Be Ignorant: July 2014 (The "Roachkickers" Edition)

On Tom Cherry's Old Time Radio Show, we have a game show segment based on the classic OTR quiz show, It Pays to Be Ignorant. The rules of the game are simple. Our very own banjo picker, Judy Cole, goes into our wonderful audience and picks out our lucky contestant. If this contestant answers our prize-winning question correctly, he or she wins! If he or she answers it incorrectly, well, they basically wasted our time.

However, once chosen, the contestant must first answer our three qualifying questions to prove if he or she has the right stuff to play It Pays to Be Ignorant! In July, Bill was our lucky contestant (For the record, Bill wore bright red cowboy boots. Judy called them "roachkickers". Apparently "roachkickers" have pointed toes that allows the wearer to corner roaches and then kick them. Judy explained that's what they call those types of boots down in Texas. Since Judy once lived in Austin, she spoke with some authority. I visited Austin twice in my lifetime. Great city!). These were Bill's qualifying questions:

1. Did you start a computer company in your parents' garage?

2. Do you often clone your family and friends for fun?

3. Did you ever win The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee? (By the way, I did!)

Bill said no to all three of the questions. Finding his answers satisfactory, the quiz master gave him this prize-winning question:

Question: What do you call a cow with no legs?

Think you know the answer (Bill did!)? Find out in the comment section!

They Arrived Before My Side Salad

The Dunce and Hellwig
For some odd reason these two super baddies, Dunce and Hellwig, appeared on my placemat while I was waiting for fried chicken Sunday. The grease stains happened afterwards.

Saturday's Comic Haul (7/19/14)

Dadman with Cupcake
Adventure Time #30
Deadly Class #3
Princess Ugg #2
She-Hulk #6
Purchased at Bob's Comic Castle. Total amount: $15.46 (Or $15.48. I forgot!)
Notes- I've been rather negligent with my blog and the Haul for a bit, but I'm still buying those funny books on a regular basis. No worries there!... Javier Pulido, please come back to She-Hulk! Pretty please with gamma rays on top! Your artwork is sadly missed!...I grabbed this particular issue of Adventure Time because it was a special zine issue, but I found it rather disappointing. Nothing really grabbed my attention. Sorry, Jake and Finn!...I added Princess Ugg and Deadly Class to my pull list recently. Princess because I usually like Ted Naifeh's work and Class due to it's art (Nice stuff from Wes Clark) and main character. When I heard Class dealt with a school for teenage assassins, I nearly balked because "the school for wizards, fairies, whatever" concept seems rather old hat by now to me, but I'm digging Deadly Class. In fact, it's the winner of this week's haul!
Dadman returns! I used that particular image for a birthday card for my dad (6/26/14).

Doodling at work and suddenly Edith Bunker appears. At least, that's what I thought she looked liked. Your mileage may vary.
