Thanks, John, for the video.  I always enjoy them.  Can't wait to experience MRF in person.  :)


^^ Not bad Outlaw Run- you may have a great "second career" ahead of you!

Sounds good to me!   :)

It's crazy the stuff you can come up with when you're driving.

I thought it might be fun to bounce around some ideas.  I absolutely love the Saloon show.  For our family, it is a must-do each time we visit SDC.  My favorite story line for the Saloon show are the ones where Mean Murphy comes to town.  I was going over the script in my mind, and I thought of some ways to "refresh" the story a little.  I really wouldn't change much.  Below you will find my version of the script after Murphy sings "I'm Mean!".  Here's how I would "tweak" the script:

Rosie Roots:  So tell me, Murphy, why are you so keen on finding “Bill” from St. Louis?

Mean Murphy:  Nope, nope, I can’t talk about it.

Cast:  Come on, Murphy.  Tell us.  Come on, Mr. Mean!

Mean Murphy:  No.  It’s personal.. It’s just between me and Bill!

Rosie Roots: Aw, come on, Murphy.  It can’t be that bad.  Bill seems like a nice guy.  Uh, I mean, if… if I ever had a chance to meet him.  I mean, with a name like “Bill”, he sounds like a good fella... especially if he comes from up St. Louis way.

Mean Murphy:  Well, he ain’t.  Trust me.

Charlie:  So what did he do, Murphy?  Make a “beak” joke in front of all your pals?

Mean Murphy: (In an outburst of anger.) Leave my nose out of it, Chuck!.  Wait a minute. All right. (Composing himself).  All right, I’m going to take my therapist’s advice and I’m going to open up about my struggles and feelins’.  Since you are all so concerned about “Bill” from St. Louis, I’m gonna tell ya what he did. (Getting angry again)   He’s that no-good, low-down, lilly-livered, egg-suckin’ snake in the grass that BIT MY NOSE OFF!

Cast:   Ewwww!!  Nasty!

Mean Murphy:  So, now you know!  (Getting emotional)  It IS PERSONAL between me and Bill from St. Louis.

Rosie Roots: Boy, I’ll say!

Mean Murphy:  He has no idea of what he has put me through over the last year!  (Getting more emotional)  Do you have any idea what it is like to go through life without a nose?

Charlie: I guess nobody but you “nose” that, Murphy!  Hey, do you know why a nose can’t be 12 inches long?  Because then it would be a “foot”!  Do you know what you’ll find if you look in a pig’s nose? A ham booger!

Mean Murphy:  You see, you see, that’s the kind of stuff I’ve got to put up with!  Nose jokes, booger jokes!  I’ve heard them all!  Plus on top of all that..  (very emotional)  I have…  I have what the doctor’s call “phantom sinusitis”!

Rosie Roots: Phantom sinusitis, what’s that?

Mean Murphy: Well, it’s like my nose, or lack thereof, is just all clogged up.  I can’t breath in!  I can’t breath out! And it gives me this poundin’ sinus headache day and night.  It makes a fella just a little bit irritable!

Rosie Roots: I bet it does! 

Mean Murphy:  And I’ve tried everything to get some relief. There was that cowpoke up in Cheyenne who told me to tie a baby skunk around my neck.  That didn’t work.  And the little rascal chewed me up somethin’ fierce!

Charlie:  Sounds like his advice really stunk!

Mean Murphy:  Then there was that Cherokee medicine man that sold me some herbs to stuff inside my gold “prosthetic” nose. He called it C-B-D.

Rosie Roots: C-B-D, what does that stand for?

Mean Murphy:  It stands for “Cherokee Breathin’ Detoxifier” and he promised it would cure my phantom sinusitis.  So I started breathin’ in that stuff and it wasn’t five minutes later and it was lights out, son!.  I mean to tell ya I didn’t come to for three days.

Rosie Roots: Sounds like a nightmare!

Mean Murphy:  But the absolute worst thing by far was the contraption a French fellow sold me up in Kansas City.

Rosie Roots: Really, what was that?

Mean Murphy:  He called it a “neti pot”.

Rosie Roots: A what-y what?

Mean Murphy: A “neti pot”.  It’s this little pot with a spout on it.  You fill it up with hot water and you pour it in your nose, if a person had one, and it’s supposed to clean out your sinuses.

Rosie Roots: Well did it work?

Mean Murphy: No it didn’t work!  It was terrible!  Water going everywhere.  I pert-near drownded on dry land.  It was humiliating!

Rosie Roots: I can see why you might be a bit perturbed towards, Bill.  Tell us, Mr. Mean, just for hypothetical reasons, what would you do if you did come across Bill from St. Louis?

Mean Murphy:  What would I do?  What would I do!  Well, first I’m gonna use that neti pot on him, then I’m going to discombobulate him, and then I’m going to take him by the ears and make a big wish!

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Gaslight Square Commercial

Came across a commercial from May 1989 advertising Gaslight Square.

To be honest, I don't have any memories of Gaslight Square.  I would have been 18 at the time and was much more interested in rides and having fun away from the parents!  :)  However, after viewing this commercial, in hindsight I'm really glad this theme was quickly replaced.

Ride Engineers Switzerland posted an animation of Mystic River Falls recently on YouTube. The "elevator" looks really cool and efficient if it functions as seen in the animation.  MRF will be a blast! I'm sure we will have more fun than the riders in the animation!   :)

Here's the link to the animation:

I know this is a weird question.  But it's just one of those things that is buggin' me.    :)

What is above you during the tunnel on American Plunge?

Thanks, guys. 


General Silver Dollar City Talk / Time Traveler Documentary

Hi, guys...

A documentary for Time Traveler was just posted on Youtube.  Absolutely beautiful footage.  Also quite a bit of behind-the-scenes footage showing how the ride operates.

I called SDC earlier in the month regarding the last "SDC Times" that others have mentioned in various forums.  I was told that a random selection of season pass holders receive a particular edition of the "SDC Times".  It's frustrating enough that there were no guest passes for the Harvest Festival, but to not receive a coupon because we weren't selected to receive the "SDC Times" really adds insult to injury.  I'm a 40+ year season pass holder.  Seems like I should be "grandfathered in" to at least receive a mailer!

Even something as "simple" as the old coin press would be great.  I still remember making mine!

SDC Memories/ Park History / 1966 SDC Film Transfer - Vehicle Footage
« on: July 09, 2019, 12:13:26 PM »
Hey, guys.

I found a very interesting film transfer that was recently posted to YouTube.  What really makes this video unique is the in-vehicle footage shot while traveling to SDC.

Hi, John.

First off, my condolences to you for the loss of Jan.  Our family absolutely loved seeing you and Jan perform at SDC.  And that means something considering my siblings and I were all teens at the time!  We would always use the time of one of your shows to rendezvous with Mom & Dad.

Thank you so much for your recent posts on YouTube.  Watching a few of your shows again really touched my heart.  If I could, I would hop on Time Traveler and set it for 1991!    :)

I remember that several years ago you had what seemed to be a soundboard audio recording of a show posted on your website.  Through failure to backup a hard drive, sadly I have lost it.  Would it be possible for you to post that again?

Thanks again, John.


General Silver Dollar City Talk / "SDC Train Story" - Press Release Video
« on: February 21, 2019, 05:35:04 PM »
Hey, everyone.

I was hit be a bad case of SDC withdrawl symptoms this afternoon, so I started digging around on the SDC website.  I found under the Press Room section an excellent video regarding the SDC train.  I personally had never seen it before.  There's quite a bit of behind-the-scenes footage and a good bit of history.

Go to...

Choose Silver Dollar City Press Library.

Then open the Videos folder.
