Today I make my video debut. You get to know a little bit yourself when you watch yourself on video. For instance, vlogging for the first time is really awkward. And apparently I mumble.
A couple weeks ago I bought a strange wooden puppet from a thrift store in Arkansas.
It has a stick going directly into his back. You know, that spot that you can't reach. Evil, evil puppet maker. I know nothing about puppets, so I had my doubts on purchasing this guy, but all those doubts were washed away when I took a closer look.
Who could say no to that face!? Anyway, I figured I would try my hand at puppeteering for the sake of the blog, so I researched how you make this crazy wood-man actually do anything; my attempts at bringing him to life would be considered "flailing around," at best. My research showed me that this wooden puppet with a stick in his back is actually called a limberjack! It's an Appalachian musical instrument. Seriously. It's used as percussion for folk music. It is also known as a jig doll, slapjack, jiggerman, limberjim, limberjill, dancin' dan, and yankee-doodle dancer. According to Wikipedia. Check out this video. Pay special attention to how excited the guy on the chair gets about a dancing man-puppet instrument.
My limberjack isn't that athletic, but he has a few moves of his own, although he prefers a much different style of music...
By the way, he was puking there at the end, not having weird air-sex.
