Lou was here in NYC a few weeks ago and he went to bed so early I went out for a walk just to get drowsy.

On the other hand, Gordon, Bob Conroy and I did the Texas Maritime Festival together on November 10 & 11 and there were NO early nights. There were a lot of fine singers and musicians there and we burned the midnight oil! I thought Gordon sang very well too.

And... to get back to the topic, I look forward to seeing Gordon's new book.

Thanks Mark......Dementia is just something in your mind, and I don't mind. But I have encountered a problem here..............

Kendall, I have searched high and low on Gordon's site and I not only can find no mention of the AAPMT, but there is no mention of any kind of fan either. Now to me, and this is a personal opinion only, this is the wrong time of year to be in the fan business with it turning winter (and all the time too, not just when you turn towards mornig). The Gordon Bok Fan might best be introduced in the early summer. But I can't find them on his site so can you tell me if they are UL approved and do they come with a rotating attachment? I heard a report on them suggesting the motor had a basso profundo kind of roar about it and the intake opening was shielded with a brushlike filter but I'd still like to see a picture.

I was thinking that the fans might sell better if he packaged them up with a songbook.

NEW SONGBOOK: Gordon Bok's long-awaited new songbook, One To Sing, One To Haul, just came through the door and it's a work of art - his mostly but not entirely. Timberhead Music is very proud to offer this treasure that we have all worked so hard to pull together. And now you can have Gordon's own special rotating fan with the unique Bok touches. First it has the signature Gordon Bok Cookie Duster HEPA Filter lining all four sides of the inlet keeping dust to a minimum. Each fan is also equipped with an auto-sensing switch so it always Turns On Toward Morning!!!

To order online, go to Books and click on the Special Package, One To Sing, One To Haul, One To Blow. Order for gifts for your friends too because don't forget that with every hundred dollar order you get a free Amish-Australian Pitchfork Moustache Tuner!

Well I was afraid that the "Gordon Bok Fans" weren't doing too well what with the 'Cat down and all so I felt it incumbent on me to bring this thread to the top again.

Friends, when you buy the package I mentioned, you not only get a book with a few tunes, but you get the Fan everyone is asking for! Along with the Cookie Duster HEPA Filter this fan has one more unique feature.........The DownEast Crapper Whapper!!! Yes folks, if you're in a position where you can expect the shit to hit the fan on a regular basis, then THIS is the Fan for you! I understand this feature has been tested extensively and is guaranteed to keep the crap off of you! The testing was done by having Kendall Morse tell stories into the fan because everyone knows that Kendall is full of shit. After wearing his voice out over the three day testing period, listeners said they never heard a word he said!

What more can you ask for? Order yours today!

Kat, these fans were made to withstand a lot of heat. Even with the wonderful features like the HEPA filter and the Crapper Whapper, the electrical draw is very low probably owing to the low frequency of the motor which emits a basso profundo kind of roar that can be soothing to some and equally obnoxious to others.......but it works!

I think the real problem here is in the marketing of the songbook with the fan. I have just come to realize that the songbook only has songs in it. Mainly boring ass Bok songs at that and it don't DO anything. They don't play themselves, the book doesn't sing to you as it should....I mean like hellfire, it's a songbook, it SHOULD sing! I can't fit the simpleass thing into my CD drive, my tapedeck, or onto my turntable, although I DID try! It don't do squat!!! The damn thing just lays there like a bowl of Quaker Puffed Wheat with all the animation of Gordon Bok himself! You pick it up and put it down and nothing.....just "Flop." What a drag......It oughta' be titled One to Sing, One to Haul, All to Go Flop.

I think the best idea for Mr. Bok would be to push the fans and the moustache tuners and see if he can giveaway some of these lame songbooks in the process. I think it's the only chance the things have............

This whole thing was Kendall's fault to begin with. I can't see why he'd want to advertize that Gordon Bok is selling feature loaded Fans when it would have made far more sense to concentrate on the somewhat limp and floppy songbook. Now it's deteriorated in talking about whether or not Bok needs Viagra.

Next time Kendall, you need to skip the Fans and other peripherals and title the thread, "Gordon Bok Songbook." That way at least the focus will be on Gordon Bok's strength (singin' and pickin'), and not on his weaknesses (marketing and sex).

First Kendall, I'd tell him that he should have a thorough physical and consult with his doctor before going the Viagra route. Then, I'd suggest that he hold back on the marketing of the Fans until Spring or early Summer. Next, I'd suggest he post a picture of himself on his website using the Amish-Australian Pitchfork Moustache Tuner. This would have a positive impact on sales. Also suggest he do something to make the songbook more marketable so it just doesn't go "flop" but instead actually plays some tunes or has a video game included, or something.

Finally, I'd explain that this thread, by one means or another, has remained in the top half of the daily thread list for TEN DAYS now and it is getting the maximum exposure it can be given, which has resulted in several committed orders. (:<))

And Sins, those vapors are the gaseous diffusion emanating from Gordon's fermenting moustache. Using the AAPMT will eliminate this unpleasantness........Have Kendall let Gordon know about this!

I think we all need to get to work on the Bok Video game to enhance songbook sales. Do you see Gordon Bok as a Mario kinda' guy or more along the lines of Crash Bandicoot, or possibly...........hmmm.............

Dear Gordon,

Please forgive the character that goes by the name of Spaw or Catspaw49. He has been exposed too long to life in the midwest and the dreary existence has led to a befuddlement of his senses wherein he confuses the most mudane items as points of humor. He is flatulent and disagreeable but we love him despite all his faults. He believes himself to be in charge of the NYCFTTS but in actuality he is also a client as he is in the hair club for men.

Kendall will have assured you by now that this website has its share of people who may not be totally integrated into the main stream of modern society as it exists today. This is not necessarily a bad thing. It keeps us off the street and allows Big Brother George to keep an eye on us.

Oh, and please register my order for an Amish-Australian Pitchfork Moustache Tuner.

Thank you,

Naemanson

Good Lord, has it really been 6 years?

Sorry to report that the cost to manufacture the AAPMT has forced me to cease all production. Well, that, and a pair of lawsuits brought on by the Australian Government and the High Council of the Ohio-Pennsylvania Amish Clans. I guess they were just pissed that I was trying to use them in name only as a marketing tool. The Aussies settled for a round of beers but the Amish turned out to be real pricks about the whole thing.

I hope the songbooks went well because there were sure as hell no royalties on the moustache tuner. If they did it was probably because of the free fan. Damn nice fan actually. Without them the songbooks would have bombed. Its a piss poor song book if it can't sing and try as I might, I couldn't get mine to utter even the littlest ditty............oughta' just call it a lyrics and music book because as that its pretty damn good and worth the money.

Anyway, you might as well check the Gordon Bok Website. They still have plenty of songbooks it seems and lots of cd's as well...always nice at Christmas. Sadly though, the fans are no where to be seen......***sigh***..........Seemed like a great promo to me. Also, there is a section on "Gordon Bok Woodcarvings." Seems like he's gotten into whittlin' in a big way and there are some photos of various chunks of wood that he's gouged out and cut on some.

I talked to Gordon at the Getaway last month.

He thinks Spaw is craazier than a shit-house rat.

But he likes the motorized fan thing.

I heard that Kendall dug up the last of the root vegetables from the neighbor's garden--He's planning to drive down to New Hampshire next month and give them to his old friend, former Massachussetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

So check out the CSPAN primary coverage, because you might see Kendall carrying his turnips toward the Mormon.

Oh my Catspaw don't you know
That the wheels are turning so,
The mustache growing easy as it did so long ago,
If I had a thing to tell you, I would tell you one more time,
Kendall's carried all his turnips toward the Mormon.

IS that like carrying coals to Newcastle? The image is compelling, but what is the metaphor?

This thread has become seriously punny.   Of course there's nothing serious about a pun except in the making which can be real serious and cause loss of sleep and huge amounts of good time wasted.

It is the punniness of it Amos.......the sheer punniness,,,check this

Time to resurrect the Christmas Story about Paw, Cletus and the Reg Boys. Although resurrections are more in tune with Easter and Little Hawk's cure.

Ooops! Why don't we hear his music on the radio? He has a rich songbook.

Gordon's music gets a lot of radio play in various parts of the States, Canada, and across the Pond, but coverage and awareness vary. It's a wonderful wealth, for sure.
