For those of you who have not yet heard, there is now a new association for the Vent world. Not since the days of the NAAV has such an organization been available to all of us here.
Now under the leadership of Mark Wade, Ken Groves and Tom Crowl, the revitalized Maher Studios has kicked of the new group that is called the “IVS”.
Hope everyone had a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving!
To start the holiday shopping season off right, we have a new puppet available now…..Jimmy Ray. Check him out.

Thats all for now folks,

As we come up on what to some is just another holiday, lets take a few minutes and remember what precipitated the event and what was really being celebrated at the original Thanksgiving. One thing that we must never forget was the price that was paid by the original European settlers for the journey to the new world that was to become known as “America”
It came about because a group of folks were in search of religious freedom and they did not have the freedom to worship as they chose when a monarch was forcing their native land to be dedicated to the “official” church of the State.
This is probably the ultimate team of actors that you can study. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. You can be any more puppet and vent like and still not have a puppet and vent in the situation.
These two comedic geniuses were about the zenith of two actors that played off of each other just for laughs. One almost always played the smart guy with the supposed more serious side while the other took the complete approach of just being lovably dumb.
Continuing on with the topic of relationships, last week we learned that you are an ACTOR and that you must act a role opposite your puppet character.
We started by studying briefly the famous couple of Burns and Allen with the relationship being one of straight man/buffoon. This week we will examine the relationship of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez.
Unlike the adoring relationship of Burns and Allen, Ball and Arnez was sadly much more one sided. Although they were a commercial success to an extreme, the personal relationship was stinted due to the wandering eyes and feet of Desi Arnez.
