Gilligan's Island; the movie!

Wednesday, Dec, 18 2013

For the record, I remain and always have been a Mary Ann guy.

I watched Gilligan's Island all the time when I was younger. Looking back, I'm not really sure why now.

But I know this much. I liked the show. Maybe it had something to do with Mary Ann and her hot counterpart Ginger.

Maybe it was seeing each week how close the Professor would come to getting them rescued by fashioning some sort of raft or radio device out of nothing more than coconut shells.

Now, a movie version is in the works, and I'll be going over a list of possible actors to play the seven crew members.

Who should be Gilligan? The Skipper?
You get the idea.
We'll discuss at some point today on the Hump Day PhilCast.

Dude has hand coming out of ankle!

Tuesday, Dec, 17 2013

So here are the pictures of this guy with a hand coming out of his ankle. Check out the second picture and just imagine coming out of a fog in that second bed to see the guy next to you with a hand/ankle...a 'handkle'?

Don't they teach these kids anything?

Monday, Dec, 16 2013

After Pack Yak today on the PhilCast I'll be chatting about my weekend as usual in our segment, "HowzYer Weekend?". Yes, I'll be talking about meeting Doc Severinsen on Friday night at his concert. And after that I've got a story from the mall on Saturday.

Now I admit, most times when my wife complains about this it doesn't really seem like a big deal to me when we are shopping together as we were Saturday. But this time, even MY eyes were wide in disbelief at what I was seeing behind the register.

The story this afternoon in the 4:00 hour of the show.

Doc Rocks!

Saturday, Dec, 14 2013

I'm in awe actually.
How in the world can that guy be 86 years old?

Last night Doc Severinsen put on one heck of a holiday show at the Appleton PAC. But as good as the music was...as sharp as his clothes were...as bright as his personality was...overall I was most impressed that this was an 86-year-old man on stage not missing a beat!

Most 86-year-old men I've known find it a chore just to walk upright.

Doc was up and down that conductor's stand, blowing his horn with wind to spare. Sharp as a tack, he joked when a couple of people were seated late. He was engaging, funny, and the music was beautiful.

And then the outfits. Oh the outfits. That hasn't changed from his Tonight Show days. He came out in green leather pants with a wild jacket on, one he said he picked up at the Vatican, made out of the Pope's old shower curtain he claimed. The audience ate it up. It was like visiting with an old friend. After intermission it was red leather pants and a white sequined jacket. How many 86-year-old men do you know who could pull that off?

After the show Doc visited the PAC lobby, where he personally signed CD's people had purchased. ALL of them, and there was a long line.

I have not stood in line to meet someone for a long, long time. But last night I did just that. I bought a CD and asked him to sign it to Ali, Mrs. Biggest Name's niece in LA who teaches music. I think it will make a great Christmas gift to her.

Me: "Great show Doc. I grew up watching you in my living room every night."
Doc: "Thanks. I get that a lot."
