Camp Midnight videos on my YouTube channel.

Check out the whole series of clips at www.youtube.com/Vashkan.

Mama, could I have ever been that thin?

Cool. I can't wait to view this. I remember those days. I remember going to a taping. Dawn Wells from Gilligans Island was the guest.

Nice memories.

I just went down memory lane. Wow. Have times changed. You were great on those. Is there anymore Camp Midnight? Let's bring it back, daddy. I want more.

What junior? Dick Clark is in a coma and can't remember the name of Anthony Forkush. What a shame.

Loved it, loved it, loved it, man. I don't think I ever got to see you actually do your thing way back in school. Your impersonations were spot on, and hilarious to boot. I wish I had seen "Camp Midnight" back in 1989. It would have blown my mind to see you. I think I told you, I was always looking for you to pop up on some show, specifically, under a ton of latex prosthetics on Star Trek: TNG. Anyway, thanks again for sharing that, and send me more if you've got it.

Dawn Wells was my favorite female castaway. After Natalie Sherwood. Man, at night when I was alone, it was just me and Lovey on that tropic isle. Sometimes Nancy Culp would wash up on the beach. Memories, indeed.

Speaking of Star Trek... that Mindwalk YouTube thing you posted. There are some things I don't get. The purse-snatcher runs and runs, and I guess it's difficult to get a lock on him, even though he's not running that fast, but eventually they do, and they beam him up. So, the other guy takes the purse back to the Bajoran High Priestess, but she just seems pissed off and they beam her up too. I kinda get all that, but what's with the guy in orange with that nest of tribbles on his head? Why would they beam him up? They have to know that it is illegal to transport tribbles.

You are one sick puppy.

As far as the mini drama that Tony posted, I was kinda confused too. They don’t seem to be in too much of a hurry. They run, but are not breaking a sweat. If I was being chased, man I would show some urgency.

Kind of reminds me of Star Trek The Next Generation. The ship is about to blow up and Worph and Riker kind of mosey on down the hallway of the Enterprise as if they are waiting for their residual checks from Paramount Studios.

Sick? I think not.

Just close your eyes, Michael, and imagine the lubricious ministrations of Lovey Howell's equine jaws, while the randy Miss Jane Hathaway snaps photos on a camera made from a coconut. It'll change your life, man. Trust me. I've been there.

I liked Tony's post, for lots of reasons, but mainly because I like tribbles. I mean, who doesn't like tribbles? Hey. Where is Tony?

Hey, how did you two...

Oh, never mind.

I remember those days when you did Champ Midnight. I was working at Magic Mountain with the magic show. Those where good times for us. We were both working, hoping that it’ll be a spring board to greater things. Then the ‘90’s hit and what a letdown. What happen?

By the by Jeff, Mrs. Howell? She was even too old for Jim Backus. She was a dish about the turn of the century. 19th century. Now, Nancy Kulp was never hot even when she was young. Next you’ll be telling me you have the hots for Lilly Tomlin.

Okay. I have spent no small amount of time reviewing these clips, and showing them to friends, and I have come up with this critique: there are far too few of them, and they are way too short. The more I watch them, the funnier they become. You really have talent, Tony. Your command of the body language and quirks and tics of your characters is terrific. I don't know if commercial success was what you were looking for, but, man, you are far better than most of the denizens of late night ensemble sketch comedies I've seen over the last thirty years.

Thanks Jeff. My neighbor has an editing bay and has helped me considerably in culling this material.

Good news! Over Christmas we are going to go through the entire series and upload a lot more to YouTube. Stay tuned!

Sounds good. I am looking forward to it. Will bring back some good memories. (Or mammaries... I get confused.)
