Today's Mug


Starfish and coffee...

Gift from Ricky! A classic and new fave.

Wednesday, January 31, 2024


I believe anyone can be creative and anyone can make art. This is a photograph of something real that I took. No filters, no editing, just a cheap photograph. And because I say so it is art. Prince put an album out called Art Official Age about a decade ago. Say that fast: Art Official Age. Prince was always a few steps ahead... 

If you call yourself an artist and you use AI to create your art you're lying.

Holy Toledo

Dave "Holy" Toledo
The World's Most Fantastic Stuntman

Mouth Puppet

This guy was made back in 2007.  And we planned to use him in a show called ""Holy" Toledo: The World's Most Fantastic Stuntman" around that time, but it never came together. 
When we went to make "Bernice, Too" we dusted off the idea for a scene in the movie and it got some great laughs and inspired us to finally go and write and create the show.
And somehow, I never added this puppet here before!
So, this puppet that is over 16 years old is finally getting his break this year when the show starts coming out. 
Dave himself is based on an amazing old friend we call Dave the Beautiful Man.
The real Dave no longer has a cheesy moustache (or hair on his head) but he's still a beauty for sure!

The Funkbot 2000

I wanted this SOOOOO bad as a kid. 
I went through a robot phase like so many other kids in the 1980's. My brother and I both did. 

I saved my money forever it felt like.  Cuz this thing was not cheap. 
And then one day, poof...  My parents decided to surprise me and my mom took me to get one. 

10 year old Jon. And Omnibot 2000...

I was obsessed with it. Played with it so much my parents had to tell me to take breaks, lol...
So I would then just use it a a tape player for music. And it's eyes flashed with the beats.
Loved that...

And then I became an adult.
I kept the Omnibot into adulthood. And then had a big move to Florida in 2001. And somewhere between moving there and then back to Connecticut the robot disappeared.

Last summer my buddy Rich gave me one. It needs some TLC, and doesn't work. But this Omnibot 2000 is going to get new life. 

And the project has begun.

 Even though no one has asked for it, here are my top ten favorite albums of 2023.
No specific order. No real rules, except re-issues must have previously unreleased songs.

Each pic is also a link to the artist! 

And this last one is a cheat...  It's a single with two great songs...

The Claw's Corner
