|Marshall Manlove - Stage Hypnotist|
Only 70 more days to Bloggerpalooza on March 15th!
Yesterday I finalized our entertainment for this year's Bloggerpalooza. We're having a comedy hypnosis show by Marshall Manlove.
Ah yes, you've taken special notice to his surname "Manlove." Just a happy coincidence folks, Marshall is straight but I have made him aware that our audience at the Bloggerpalooza is predominately gay. He says he has "no problem" with that. We're not talking "Duck Dynasty" here folks.
I wanted to spring a surprise on you folks who will be attending the Bloggerpalooza but talking to Marshall yesterday, he suggested that I make everyone aware that he will be there performing his stage hypnosis show with volunteers from the audience (that would be US folks).
Now as is true in any group of folks, not everyone will be in agreement with my choice of entertainment so let me assure everyone that you can choose to attend Marshall's show after the buffet dinner on Saturday night, March 15th, or not to attend. There will be no charge for attending.
The charges will be the same as last year, $25.00 per person for the buffet dinner, this year prepared by Gary Papp of the Essential Chef. Gary and his wife Lorraine have catered many events at the Inn and I can assure you from first hand experience (I've eaten his leftovers), Gary and Lorraine's food is excellent!

I've always been fascinated by hypnosis even though I was never able to be hypnotized myself. But you know folks, I'm willing to try this time. I think the reason I couldn't "go under" back then in the spring of 1960 because I was at the Army Security Agency training school and had a security clearance. Back in those bad old days where being gay ("homosexual" back then) was grounds for losing your clearance and being kicked out of the Army. I was always afraid is I was "under" I would reveal my true nature……I was attracted to men!

But I digress. Notice I always tend to make my blog postings about myself. So narcissistic I am. Oh well. Back to our regular programming.
Folks, we're having a comedy hypnosis show at our Bloggerpalooza this year. Be forewarned!
Below is a typical hypnotist comedy routine. I couldn't provide a short video of Marshall Manlove but I can provide this one from Marc Savard's show in Las Vegas. Marc, the hypnotist planted the suggestion that every time the song "Take My Breath Away" from the movie "Top Gun", these two very straight guys would get up and dirty dance. I can't guarantee we'll provide a routine like this at our Bloggerpalooza event but we'll certainly try. Say, plant a suggestion that Sassy Bear and Anne Marie would get up and dirty dance each time "Take My Breath Away" played. Just an idea folks!
