Memphis Ghostbusters Advertisement #3

Flip, Flop & Fly

 I love different versions of songs.

Tonight, I happened to start looking up: FLIP, FLOP & FLY

The Blues Brothers' Briefcase Full of Blues was my first hearing of the song, recorded live September 9, 1978, at the Universal Amphitheater.

December 31, 1978, The Blues Brothers performed live at the Winterland closing.

Here are some other versions that are awesome!

Memphis Ghostbusters - Second TV Commercial Spot


Muley Reads: Where the Wild Things Are

Muley Reads: Where the Wild Things Are!

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. In this iconic story, when young Max dresses in his wolf suit and causes havoc in the house, his mother sends him to bed. From there, Max sets sail to an island inhabited by the Wild Things, who name him king and share a wild rumpus with him. But then from far away across the world, Max smells good things to eat. What makes Sendak's book so compelling is its grounding effect: Max has a tantrum and in a flight of fancy, visits his wild side – but he is pulled back by a belief in parental love to a supper “still hot." Generations have shared this beautiful picture book, and children of all ages will want to return to it again and again.

Reading is Fundamental!  Books add the FUN, Muley adds DA MENTAL!!

Memphis Ghostbusters

 For years, I talked about starting a Memphis Ghostbusters Franchise, and Lin Workman talked about the logo he'd like to create for it.  Finally, we did it all!

An email from Ghost Corps came stating that they include all franchises who help with charity and create good-will.  So, we're also...

To make the team more official, we've created this commercial.

Burns and Allen: TV Guide from "Burnses and Mortenses go to New York"

Continuing in my Burns and Allen fandom, I wanted to share one part of my collection which is George Burns guest starring on The Muppet Show (with Palisades action figures).

So, on YouTube I watched an episode recently: Burns and Allen: The Burnses and Mortons Go to New York, in which there are a few jokes about a TV Guide magazine.  Here's some screen captures, the show is below.

While watching, and seeing the TV Guide, and had to find out if it was a real magazine.  I searched and look what I found on eBay:

The autograph looks real after some investigation.  The interior story of the TV Guide article that was being read on the show:

Enjoy the show!  (Hit play twice if it doesn't start.)

The Burns and Allen Show, presented by Carnation

When I was a kid, the first experience that I can think of knowing about George Burns was on The Muppet Show in 1977 (I was 5 years old).  

Then, I saw him in "Oh, God!" among other programs and fast learned who George Burns was - leading me to learn more about his wife Gracie Allen and their shows.  The first thing I ever saw with the two of them in it, though, was "Burns and Allen at the Antique Store."  I remember laughing so hard I was screaming!

Eventually, I learned more about Burns and Allen, got ahold of some audio cassettes of radio shows, and with the onset of cable television, I was able to begin watching some really great old television shows including The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show.  Eventually, I found a TON of their shows on the YouTube channel Jefronty - I suggest subscribing!

While watching one of the episodes, there was a big push for a cookbook from their sponsor, Carnation Milk.

This episode is the first ever mention of the book, but I didn't see this first, it's the next video that I saw first.

Here's the full show:

When I saw this, I decided to contact Carnation Milk to see if any of these cookbooks still existed.  Since they were good and snobby and didn't want to reply, I searched online where I found a copy - SIGNED BY GRACIE ALLEN!!  Boy, was I excited.  I bought that book, plus another that I could play with and read.

And of course, this is important to me because I do have George Burns' autograph from when I was a little kid in the 80s!  So, more or less, I feel that I have reconnected the act of Burns and Allen!

But, wait until you see what I found and have in my collection based on another of their episodes!  Coming soon in the next few weeks!!

The book has also been featured on this episode.
