This is a fantastic inspirational documentary about Kevin Clash. The man behind the muppet known as Elmo. I highly reccomend it. It's available on NetFlix Watch Now. Check it out!
I will be a guest at the Great Allentown Comic Con this Saturday March 17. This is a super fun show in a super cool location. (it's like a flea market mall, and there's a PRO WRESTLING MUSEUM upstairs!!!) This convention had a ton of great deals and fantastic talent on hand last year and I'm sure it will be amazing this time around too! Click the banner above for more information and I hope to see you there! Peace and Comics!
Today is Febuary 29th! It's a Leap Year! YAY! My Brothers and I used to have our own Public Access variety show called THE WORKS, and for the leap year we took a whole crew and played a game of Leapfrog all throughout Clifton NJ. What is Leapfrog? Here's what Wikipedia says:
Leapfrog is a children's game in which players vault over each other's stooped backs. Games of this sort have been called by this name since at least the late sixteenth century. They also played this in colonial America.
The first participant rests hands on knees and bends over, which is called giving a back. The next player places hands on the first's back and leaps over by straddling legs wide apart on each side. On landing he stoops down and a third leaps over the first and second, and the fourth over all others successively. When all the players are stooping, the last in the line begins leaping over all the others in turn. The number of participants is not fixed.
The French version of this game is called saute-mouton (literally "leapsheep"), and the Romanian is called capra ("mounting rack" or "goat"). In India it is called as "Aar Ghodi Ki Par Ghodi" (meaning "horseleap"). In Italy the game is called "la cavallina" (i.e. "small or baby horse").
In the Korean and Japanese versions (말뚝박기 lit. "piledriving" and 馬跳び うまとび umatobi, lit. "horseleap", respectively), one player 'leaps' over the backs of the other players who stoop close enough to form a continuous line, attempting to cause the line to collapse under the weight of the riders.
So today is a special day, that only comes around once every four years. Make it a special day. Leapfrog with friends!
