Sad news, indeed. But check out these photos:
Hard to believe it's the same guy. Where's the chubby cherubic-like face? And was I the only one who thought that Porky was Asian?
Anyway, thanks to EL for the heads up.

From the Jamacia Star:
Darain Housen has not taken off his hat for the last 20 years. He bathes, he sleeps and does everything possible in it. It is a perfect fit. But unlike other hats, his is not made of cloth but from the very hair on his head which is why it cannot be removed.
Quote of the day:
"Mi an dem fi go a di party but di three of them had caps an' mi had none so mi get two mirror one behind mi and di other in front of mi an' mi trim mi hair like a cap an' go a di dance," said Housen.
Well said, Hairy Hat Man. Read the full story here.

Now, if anyone has ever seen Star Wars, you'd know that the mighty Chewbacca does not have a hard shell for a head. So why the hell they made this travesty of a costume is beyond me. It pretty much seals the fate of the kid wearing it that he will get his ass pummeled and his candy stolen. So before you sentence your child to this adolescent torture device, ask yourself parents, is it worth the $87.99 non-refundable cost? I think not.
We mentioned on our last show that we were having a special guest podcaster joining us for an upcoming show. And now the truth can be told!
World-famous New Jersey podcaster Gene from Hometown Tales will be a special guest in-studio with us this weekend. Not only that, but we will doing a "joint podcast" where we will be recording both of our shows at the same time. We'll Skype Bryan in and we'll do show #78 of Jawbone and Show #38 of Hometown Tales. You'll hear Hometown Tales folklore and ghost stories while Nora and I punctuate these tomes with our silly comments. It should be a blast, so make sure you subscribe today!

Apple's announcement last week it will air episodes of ABC's Lost and Desperate Housewives, among others, over it's new video iPod has caused concern among network affiliates who feel "off TV" viewing will hurt rating and/or make ratings in accurate, let alone destroy their business model. All the hand ringing that will, no doubt, go on for the next year or two surrounding this issue could easily be skipped with the simple acknowledgment that every bit of broadcast programming will ultimately be available for download with or without advertising, viewable on an iPod, a similar device, a PC or ported to and viewed on a TV. Current appointment television viewing as we know it will disappear. Current rating systems will become irrelevant. And the buying of "TV advertising" simply won't be the same.
Are we seeing the end of an era? Stick a fork in it.

This is our way of saying thanks for listening and supporting Jawbone!
UPDATE: I make a comment during the show that the Pez Mp3 player has a removeable head. This is not the case. The Pez head is not removeable on the player. Apparently, I thought that the hair and hats were interchangeable, but I got confused. Sorry for the mix up!
This is a very cool idea. And just in time for Christmas, too!
One of our loyal listeners, Pat, has developed the world's first Pez Mp3 player. We recorded a greeting for the player a while back, so I don't know if we're actually pre-loaded on the player, but they're pretty nifty either way. Check it out here.
UPDATE: According to Pat, we aren't on the player. "I ended up dumping all the blogger/podcaster greetings from the first edition. There was too much variety in style and quality and I didn't have the editing ability to pull them into a coherent package. It is just going to have some indie bands on it instead." Bummer. But it's a pretty cool player nonetheless!

Nora and I have been watching (and re-watching) the BBC version of The Office on DVD for the past few months. We've talked about it on our show and we're big fans. We also are starting to like the American version as well, although the earlier shows were trying too hard to be like the British version.
Regardless, I came across this great caricature of Ricky Gervais who plays the character of David Brent, the pathetic boss of Wernham-Hogg. Great drawing, great expression. It makes me want to go and watch the DVD's all over again.

On this episode, Nora and I try to explain to our new audience members who we are, what we're all about and why they should be listening to such a fine show. We get some great e-mails and voice mails and more. We also make another plea for submissions for the Jawbone Open Mic Podcast Show. You can win stuff! Join us, won't you?
