New Pictures Added
- - - -
As you may be aware of, I just updated the Gallery page and have had the two pictures of Marvin up for years. I have retired one of the photographs and have replaced it with the WB Alien. You can see the retired picture in the Twisted WB in the gallery.

If anybody knows of the name of this WB Alien character, please let me know. I have not been able to locate anything about this character.

This past Halloween I started to play with the 646Q balloons, six-inch diameter and 46 inches long. These are a monster of a balloon and require a lot of imagination and skills to uses these balloons. Like most people with a new balloon, I had to make a dog. You can see a picture of this dog from a link off the Kids Stuff page, or use the quick link.

Chicago Balloon Jam
- - - -

I talked with Roger Siegel this week and he said Paul Bachman would be attending the balloon jam. With Paul and Roger attending this jam, will have over 70 years of professional entertainment experience between two people.

Another person I have invited is Chuck Gruberman owner of Chuck's House of Magic. Chuck and wife Joyce are the founding member of IBAC (International Balloon Arts Convention) held in Rosemont, IL. I talked with Joyce and she will be checking their calendar. If Chuck and Joyce can attend, you will learn more about IBAC and the balloon design programs.

Pass the word November 14th is the twisted date!

Markers Update
- - - -
In Entertainers Tip 7, I talked about a new white marker. I have been in contact with the manufacture and they have kindly provided me with two different styles of markers.

The first marker is the white marker, which I have talked about in entertainer's tip 7. They sent me the following broad point markers which colors are sunspot yellow, astro orange, martin green, purple, nebula, deep space black, Milky Way white, plasma pink, earth blue, and rocket red.

The other style markers they sent is a medium point marker. Colors: brown, teal, purple, blue, orange, pink, green, and black.

Since these markers only arrived yesterday, I have had little time to test them out, but will let you now how they work in the next couple of days.

Entertainers Tip 8
- - - -
Stretching


I was working my normal Monday night restaurant (Famous Dave's Ribs, Orland Park, IL 5:30-7:30) when I started talking with a customer who is a Chiropractor. I asked, "What would be good exercise for a balloon entertainer"? And to my surprise, he suggests that I stretch the muscles. He explained that over working the muscles could cause damage and pain. To prevent this, warm up by stretching the muscles
before and after the balloon job.

I thought about that stretching thing for the next couple of days when it accrued to me. When I was little my mom would always get out of bed and stretch. Mom said she picked up this habit up from Grandpa. Grandpa stretched everyday. Grandpa figured, if animals do it all day long, why not us. Now that I am older and have a dog, I have learned that when she wants to play, she will stretch, then get rambunctious, and bring me a toy.

If you ever talk with a professional entertainer work to them is more like playing. So now, this stretching thing had become more important to me now. I will stretch out my fingers and arms on the way to the show and again after the show. It only takes a couple of minutes and like my puppy, I want to make sure I give 100% when I play - or should I say work.

So start stretching, you just may become more rambunctious.

Christmas Orders
- - - -
Just a little reminder to get your Christmas orders in now. Sometimes people wait until last minute to order Christmas presents and they don't get there on time. If you order now you will be sure to make someone's holiday just a little twisted.

So order early and order often….

2000+ on Monday
- - - -
I happy to announce that on Monday we had 2015 unique visitors in a 24-hour period - www.mbd2.com has been hovering around the 2000 mark for the last couple of months and has finally broken through the 2000 unique visitors in one day. If things hold up today, we should shatter that record by 500+ visitors. Do not ask me why so many people this week? I just hope the keep coming back every week. :

Boy, have things changed. When I first started sending out update notices, it was just a couple of line saying "hey, new pictures at...", but this site has grown bigger, and bigger, and with cooler stuff. As a result, the two-line email has now gone to the ezine format. I have now started archive these messages and will have a link off the update notice form and at the end of the email.
