Many years ago in the Jack Vasel Memorial Auction, I bid on some voice work from Eric Summerer and a story from Eric Herman. Together they came up with story called The Bear with the Hair. It starred some guest voices of some well-known BGGers and was a charming homage to the Cat in the Hat. It was very clever and professional. I thought it was fantastic.

A couple of years ago, I reunited with an old friend of mine who is an aspiring puppeteer. Her name is Amy(Zing) Gray (say it quickly then try not to sing the rest). I asked her to make a video using the audio that Eric and Eric created. Here it is:



Amy is not on BGG. If you want to leave her a message of encouragement, would you please click through to Youtube and tell her?

I want to remind you that this was one person who is putting herself out there creatively with no budget. If puppetry is not your cup of tea... well... it is a short video. Please do not rain on her parade.

I think the video is fantastic too. It made me laugh. I hope you like it.

Nice, though I hope for Amy's sake that her ego isn't too closely tied to Youtube comments. "What a self-affirming and faith-in-humanity-restoring time I've had reading these YouTube comments," said no one ever.

True story. Not just YouTube.

I do think that puppeteers get less attention than most show biz. That is why I am encouraging positive feedback.

Maybe leave her some kind words?

I just made a geeklist with prizes to get the word out about this great video and the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund.

Please visit it and join in the fun.

Who knows, maybe we could get it featured on YouTube?

Let's go viral with this, people!

I'm impressed! Quite funny throughout. Even when I could blatantly see the puppeteer I barely noticed them because my attention kept being drawn back to the emotive puppets. More, please!

If you want more puppets, you will have to ask Amy on YouTube. She is the puppet queen extraordinare.
