Mystery of Ghost Photo Revealed!

Well, we figured out whose face was in the ghost photo that Nora's brother George took. It was none other than American Idol runner-up and fellow Clevelander, Scott Savol!

That explains the goggles and the eerie feeling of dread and hostility. Thanks to Aaron for the heads up.

Jawbone #65: Live From Virginia Beach -Part Deux

In the conclusion of our trip to Virginia Beach, we explain what we saw shortly after we visited the Cornwallis cave during our Yorktown Ghost Tour. We take an exhausted trip to see dolphins in the Chesapeake Bay and enjoy a fine night at the Boardwalk. Join us, won't you?

Ok, for those of you who are curious about the ghost photo, here's the story: Nora's brother, George, shot this photograph while we stood in front of the Cornwallis cave.

The figure to the extreme right of the photograph is our tour guide. At the time this picture was taken, she was explaining that she doesn't like being near the cave at all, and has felt this way since she was a small child. (Her father was apparently a ranger with the National Parks Service in Virginia.) George shot the photo without a flash and with a longer exposure. The light is from a lantern that sat at the tour guides feet. Directly behind the shoulder of our tour guide, everyone noticed what looks to be a man's face. You can get a better look in this detail photograph.

I know a lot of skeptics will say that this is "matrixing", where the brain creates familiar objects out of unfamiliar, jumbled images. All I know is that I see a definite face. And it seems kind of odd that that would show up as our guide was talking about not wanting to go near the cave. Maybe someone should tell her that's she's not safe outside the cave, either.

That's our story and we're sticking with it. If you want to hear more, download or subscribe to our latest podcast.

Back From Hiatus!

We are back from a long vacation in Virginia Beach and we're ready to hit the ground podcasting. I recorded a ton of stuff on the beach and around the area, so stay tuned for some cool shows this week. The shows will be full of surf, sand, horseshoe crabs, dolphins and maybe even -- a ghost.

Gotta go edit up the shows and I hope to have them up this week.

If you look to the right, you'll see a few new versions of our promo. We have the original promo that went out in our feed earlier this month, another version featuring our theme song, and finally, a remixed version by DJ Hojo. Grab one or grab em all and feel free to play the hell out of them.

Jawbone Gets An Extra Life

Tonight, I was a guest on one of my favorite podcasts, ExtraLife Radio. Scott Johnson's bi-weekly podcast is one of the most engaging shows out there dealing with video games. movies, comic books and general geekdom. I've often found myself talking to the screen, totally trying to get into the conversation, while listening to one of his shows. Some people would call that mental patient behavior. I chalk it up to being totally involved in the subject matter. Incidentally, Scott also draws a web comic called (surprise!) Extra Life. All in all, we had a great conversation and I was glad to be a part of it. I even let people know about how Jawbone really started.

You can check out the show here. And while you're at it, take a peek at Scott's comics. They're totally awesome.

BTW, if you'd like to see my foray into webcomics, check out IP.

Our New Promo!

Since we are on hiatus, I think this would suffice for a bit. Here is our brand spankin' new promo produced by our friend and voice of Podcast Outlaws, Adam Raimer. Adam is a phenomenal talent and is extremely easy to work with. If you need a promo or anything else for your show, drop Adam a line here.

Feel free to grab this promo, play it on your show or simply stick it in your ear. Just remember to flush wth warm water afterwards.

Gallery Showing this weekend!

Just a reminder if you are in the Cleveland area, and you'd like to see some of my artwork, you can visit the Pop Shop Gallery and Studio for "The SideKick Show". This will be the first time my artwork has ever hung in a gallery and I'm very excited about it. The address is 17020 Madison Avenue in Lakewood. You'll see a few of my drawings hanging up as well as the work of other talented local artists. Unfortunately, I won't be there in person, but the show should be interesting regardless.

Also, stay tuned to the show and this blog for more exciting information about even more upcoming gallery showings and my artwork possibly coming to a town near you!

Bastardized Ads

From Something Awful: AdCouncil PSA's get a decidedly twisted working over in this set of images. Read all the copy. Some of the stuff is downright hilarious. WARNING: Some of these are kind of off-color. So, be forewarned. Onward!
