Fiat guy probably heard they're changing the Nutella recipe and was stocking up on the old formula.
  7:08pm Emily:

Hey everybody!
  7:09pm Emily:

@Ken from HP: they DID change it! I knew it!!
Avatar 7:09pm kimzilla:

I may be a bit over the top. Apologies.

black squirrels and bagel trees
  7:11pm Marc15:

A bagel tree grows in The Bronx
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Black squirrels were introduced to the Bronx by a Bronx Zoo scientist.

I used to see black squirrels sometimes in Iowa.

@Emily :-)

stick puppet swamp witch. Wow that's my new Facebook insult.
  7:17pm Marc15:

@Kimzilla :-)
  7:17pm Emily:

Hahaha that's a good one.
Avatar 7:17pm david_:

@melinda i feel like black squirrels are showing up in more and more places in the US
  7:18pm Emily:

That's crazy--I had never seen one before yesterday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm ultradamno:

The weird, clinically-depressed X-tian puppet I grew up with in Indiana, usually interspersed with cautionary tales that inevariably concluded with the lead, recently deceased sinner falling down a park slide to hell.
Avatar 7:19pm kimzilla:

I read on wikipedia, cause I was so excited about black squirrels, that they keep warmer in the winter and are in general, healthier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm ultradamno:

Avatar 7:19pm david_:

interesting kim
Avatar 7:19pm Chucks Paranormal:

I would stay up on non school nights trying to stay up all night till the test pattern came on TV. Had to be sneaky about it so my parents wouldn't catch me. I was like 7-8 at the time lol.
  7:20pm Emily:

@ultradamno: whoah. Thank you for the link--we're definitely going to follow up on that one!
Avatar 7:20pm kimzilla:

@UltraDamno, can't wait to dive in to that, it looks and sounds creepy as hell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Black squirrels have spread by mating with grey squirrels and the coloration comes through as a genetic trait, like eye color.
Avatar 7:24pm david_:

everything's coming up witches
  7:24pm Kate:

puppets can say things for us that we could never say for ourselves watch the movie Lili with Leslie Caron
Avatar 7:24pm Chucks Paranormal:

Did somebody say cemetery????? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm ultradamno:

Time For Timothy really made Channel Zero: Candle Cove (SyFy channel horror anthology show with a show within the show that only kids could perceive) seem very familiar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Not just any cemetery, The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery!
Avatar 7:26pm kimzilla:

Chuck, we had to edit out a section of audio about Melissa, who does tours telling ghost hunters that they can't use their equipment on new grave sites.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

We don't tell "ghost stories". We tell history.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Ghost hunters are not cool on tours.
Avatar 7:28pm Chucks Paranormal:

Wow but yeah that makes sense. I won't go near New sections just because I don't want a family member showing up and getting offended. Somebody who passed 100 years ago not worried about that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Melissa is a wonderful guide.
Avatar 7:30pm kimzilla:

@Chuck, yeah, you mentioned that to us about not going to new sites. The old ghosts are cooler anyway.
  7:31pm Marc15:

I know a lot of people who I can call a Stick Puppet Swamp Witch ... But, I will be nice
Avatar 7:32pm Chucks Paranormal:

Yeah if the tour is a history tour, it should be respected as such. After the first time the tour guide defers on ghost stories that should be the end of it.
Avatar 7:33pm kimzilla:

I think we all should have a homework assignment to call someone a Stick Puppet Swamp Witch at least once this week. Let us know how it goes.
Avatar 7:33pm Chucks Paranormal:

I know a few people at work I can call that lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

It's hard to avoid the subject of ghosts when you're talking about Washington Irving though. The oldest graves are in the Old Dutch Churchyard next to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery where Irving heard about the Hessian soldier and Hulda the Witch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Melissa's shadow puppet show about young Irving was beautiful.
Avatar 7:36pm Chucks Paranormal:

  7:36pm Emily:

I haven't made it up to Sleepy Hollow for a tour yet--I want to, though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

We have tours till the end of November
  7:38pm Emily:

  7:39pm Marc15:

Well Kim, I can call the current lieutenant governor of New Jersey a Stick Puppet swamp Witch, but I don’t think she reads your comments board
Avatar 7:39pm kimzilla:

Who is the evil puppeteer in Pinocchio??
Avatar 7:39pm Chucks Paranormal:

@Karen, so out of curiosity, if I decided to come up to Sleepy Hollow is it okay to investigate during the day in the older sections or is that frowned upon? I'm a discreet type of Investigator,. Not the loud boisterous type lol.
Avatar 7:40pm Will from Seattle:

or the devil doll. a british horror film about a ventriloquist dummy comes to life & kills his puppeteer
  7:40pm Emily:

It IS Stromboli! He's the evil puppeteer. The whale is Monstro.
  7:41pm Emily:

We can vouch for Chuck. He's quiet!
Avatar 7:42pm Will from Seattle:

theater was also outlawed during Cromwell's reign because puritans considered it sinful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Be discreet. There are always family members visiting someone. Even in the churchyard burials span over 300 years within just 3 acres.
Avatar 7:42pm Chucks Paranormal:

Ah ok, thanks that's good to know
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm ultradamno:

Talking of puppetry for adults reminded me of Todd Haynes' Superstar. The effectively banned short telling the Karen Carpenter story with Barbie dolls
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

You can only visit from 8am to 4:30 every day.
Avatar 7:43pm kimzilla:

All I know is I want a stromboli right now.
  7:43pm Emily:

Dude, I know--I'm STARVING
Avatar 7:43pm Chucks Paranormal:

This now reminds me of the Twilight Zone where the Dummy got his ventriloquist to steal and Rob stores for money. The Dummy was the Mastermind.
  7:44pm Emily:

@Chuck that episode is so scary!! That TERRIFIED me as a kid.
Avatar 7:44pm Chucks Paranormal:

@Karen, yeah I think I remember seeing those hours on the website. Thanks!
Avatar 7:46pm Will from Seattle:

the main subject of traditional Indonesian puppetry is religious stories from hindu, muslim, & Buddhist legends
Avatar 7:47pm Chucks Paranormal:

Hi lol
  7:47pm Marc15:

I posted the question on my Twitter
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm ultradamno:

On the killer puppet trope, similar to the aforementioned Channel Zero: Candle Cove, I recommend the Angel episode "Smile Time" also with demons in puppet form preying on children.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm melinda:

@ultradamno I remember that. It was the first film I saw at college.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm melinda:

Superstar, that is.
  7:51pm Bruce S.:

Hi Kimz and Emily In 1976 I spent 4 weeks in Arlington.VT. -Bread and Puppet gave a performance in a beautiful open meadow with mountains as backdrop. I have a bonch o b&w photos and negs to this day. If Melissa is interested in viewing them please have her contact me at this email.Thank you-
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm ultradamno:

I first saw it in the eighties at a friend's house in Cinti on a highly degraded VHS, which really completed the effect.
Avatar 7:54pm kimzilla:

@Bruce thanks, I'll pass it on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm ultradamno:

You have vampire enemies, you can never go to Hot Topic or Spencer Gifts
Avatar 7:55pm Will from Seattle:

that's perfect! Bram Stoker's Dracula was largely told through letters!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Philthy woman:

I'm so psyched for this- great idea!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm ultradamno:

Love that owl!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

All of Melissa's shadow puppets are all this great
Avatar 7:58pm Chucks Paranormal:

Great show gals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm ultradamno:

Another area of puppetry with name dropping: Pee Wee/Panter

Great show, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm ultradamno:

*worth* name-dropping.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm listener 126464:

Thanks DJs!
  8:11pm Melissa:

I just figured out how to comment! Thanks for coming to visit me. (I love Lydia the Tatooed Lady!)
