APRIL 2000 MESSAGES
Tom Easthouse was my JC in '79 when I was 11 years old. Billy
Fried was the SC. The cabin had a perpetual reek of strawberry
incense. They listened to that Willie Nelson/Waylon Jennings
album over and over again. Once, Easthouse was walking around
the cabin with a red plastic cylindrical thing with a little
metal bowl jutting out at one end, which he told us was a
"jelly bean holder."

The Menomonee Incident
Yes, Tom was very generous with his jelly beans.
I once witnessed Tom do a 'standing jelly bean', after which he
passed out, fell backwards hitting his head on the edge of a
shelf on the way down. He was out cold for at least a minute or
so. There was no one else around and, (after rumaging through
his pockets), I pressed a cold soda to his head and he abruptly
sat up and asked what the hell was going on. I told him what
had happened and he never believed me......even though he
couldn't explain the large knot on the back of his head.

Julio--back up north?
I spoke with Julio Madrazo (PhD) who says there is a good
chance he will be at the reunion. He would fly to Chicago and
need a ride from there. I told him someone would make sure to
find him a spot in their northbound Tonymobile. His address
is-- firstname.lastname@example.org ---I also heard a rumor that PUD was
at Chmura's hot tub party...

FireTalk (FREE VOICE CALLS/VOICEMAIL)
NOW HEAR THIS-- Bosco, Pete Kaufman and I have been toying
around with some newer voice technology, that enables both
real-time voice exchange, as well as voicemail. Trust me when
we all agree that this product is hot. Load FireTalk for free

screen/ID#: hopnsing/848887, Brian's screen/ID#: Bosco
Boots/873991 and mine is JonnyBGoode/854051. The program allows
for 1-on-1 voice-talk, grouptalk and voicemail. It can easily
accomodate a room full of heineys. The voice quality is
exceptional, as if you're talkin' on the phone (internal or
external mic or headset required). It's very user-friendly--a
great way to stay in touch (in the real-time world) with your
Heiney friends. Have a very heinous day.(A BIG BRAVO TO THE

Columbus Drive, Chicago, IL 60611. NO PERSONAL CHECKS FROM PUD
Gazzoo, , firstname.lastname@example.org, [Msgid=42722]
Pud, like I'm going to buy phone service from you! I'm still
waiting on that stereo I bought from Central Illinois Audio
(CIA) fifteen years ago.
David Raskin, , email@example.com, [Msgid=42742]
NICE MEMORY RECALL.
Raskin, extremely impressive recall on CIA. I don't think you
tonied enough at camp, your long term memory is too sharp! Pud,
what became of CIA?

run for the roses
Hope you guys are doing well. If anyone has any plans of making
it down for the run for the roses feel free to give me a call
at 502.485.1224. Take it easy! Roubs
Craig Rouben, 502.485.1224, email@example.com, [Msgid=42813]
As I recall C.I.A.'s primary business was supplying TDK SA90
and Maxell UD-XLII Tapes to the Timberlane taping community.
Once camp ended, C.I.A. pretty much did too. By the way, I
believe I still have one of the C.I.A. business cards. How much
do you think I can get for it on E-Bay?
Red, , firstname.lastname@example.org, [Msgid=42841]
That's--Central Illinois Audio, INC.
Of course, CIA was around before audio/video "discount
retailing" existed; in fact, I marketed the concept to what is
now called BEST BUY. Those were some days--between handling
orders amongst heineys from Timberlane (with a complete system
sold to Jeff Mossler, M.D.) and amongst numerous chronies of my
bro' Neil at the University of Denver, and of course, amongst
all of my Central Illinois bretheren, frankly, I got a little
bored...But there was some excitement on the legal end of
things, as the long-established "Illinois Audio" of Chicago
wanted to sue me for "patent infringement," (too bad they
didn't trademark their name) as well as for a few other reasons
they could dream up (jealousy will make ya fat n' ugly real
quick); I was quite thankful, however, that Mr. Pud, Sr. was
(and still is, at the ripe old age of 76) a member of the
Illinois State Bar. He's even flipped a couple crisp $100 bills
to Rick Mossler, Esq. He now spends most of his time keeping
brother Neil out of litigation (sometimes successfully). Neil
is presently learning how to swim the backstroke in a pool full
of LIQUID GOLD. Red, I'm impressed--you have somethin' that I
DON'T--give it up? (I think Shimmy has one as well).

Pounding the pavement with CIA
I actually was an outside sales rep for CIA. Pud's target
market was college kids with no money, so he sent me to Wash U
to make some sales. I was promptly tossed off campus by the

Wonderin about that Pud hot tub party
Hey Pud--Let's her the details on that Chmura hot tub party
with the nubiles.

Pud Going Public?????
Pud, I hear rumor that you have given up your job search,
changing your company name to CIA.com, and going public. As far
as the old business card goes, you can bid on E-Bay with the
rest of the scum.

Timber Chef (Don't believe everything on TV)
A few of ya'll have asked me when my infomercial will air.
Well, I just found out today that it has been on for a few
It should be airing nationally on cable, on various channels at
various times. It's called The Garnishing Gourmet (save your
money, it's a piece of crap) and is being aired as an
infomercial as well as 60 & 30 second spots. I have not yet
seen the whole show, but I did receive a copy of the 60sec
spot. After 12+ hours of shooting that day, I wound up on
screen for about 3 seconds in two different scenes plus a few
close-ups of my hands working their magic. In one scene, I
magically transform from a Professional Chef into an attractive
Housewife (bet you didn't know I could do that)
And I must add ... all the 'food' you see was prepared by
myself. Some of it is real, and much of it is fake. Can you
If you see this in your state, please let me know.

Our Little Green Friend
Not to borrow Bob Gassel's nickname...but doesn't the picture
of Pud at the top of this page look alot like the real 'Gazzoo'
from the cartoons?
Kent Benson, , PleaseChokeMeToo@aol.com, [Msgid=43242]
I guess it's OK to choke (or hit) another player or coach if
you're African-American (Latrell Sprewell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar,
Kermit Washington)...or threaten to kill another coach (John
Chaney)...but if you're white and outspoken don't grab a kid
for 2-3 seconds with one hand around the neck in practice or
you'll get hung out to dry!...That being said, I want Knight
gone, not because of that, but because he can't recruit or win
anymore!....I've been calling for his head for 6 years!...Nice
reference Marksy, I always know when it's you, even when you
don't sign your name!

Heh...not even close
Gazzoo, , email@example.com, [Msgid=43874]
Can I call someone?
Uh...that would have to be Rick Kagen and Rocky Stone.
Marksy owes me a maltorino!
Bosco, , YaHeyDer@aol.com, [Msgid=43890]
You're Raskin for it
Raskin....Rob Schiller was in diapers when that picture got
taken. Which means it could have been taken anytime Schiller
was under 12 years old....
