|If you attend Lollapalooza Chicago this year, here's one of the thangs you will see.|
"For you, Hud, I have ten!"
"Follow me up to the shop, then. I thought you might like to see some of what we actually do." This is literally three blocks from the DollarGen. Okay!
I laughed my ass off, and wish I had fired up the video instead, 'cause about the time I snapped this, they tested the mechanism that makes the mecha-Drinking bird dip his beak, and bob back up. It was a scream.
Guys from MooTV were there assisting with the rigging, so I had to shout-out, "Hey, y'all know James Duer?" Of course they did. East Side Scooters partner (with Josephine, his wife) and ex-performance video director for Toby Keith and Zac Brown Band, who also worked for MooTV at the time. Now, every week on the job, I see a bunch of the stuff James sells these days for Victaulic. They make plumbing stuff, like big-ass ductile iron braces for fire systems, an' whatnot. I miss the hell out of ESS, but I think the Duers are a lot happier, and certainly financially better off, these days. I need to go visit them in their new home in Lebanon, TN (home of Charlie Daniels), very, very soon. I miss 'em both, a lot.
