4 years, 6 months.
Word is getting out about our new web series, Jack-Man. So we filmed the 2nd episode, “Shaving Bath-Man.” I released it on YouTube yesterday morning. Here it is:
In this webisode, a new villain is introduced: Bath-Man. He shows up to revenge the humiliation of Green Meanie, who Jack-Man defeated in Webisode 1.
Bath-Man is a very strong man, but has an unfortunate weakness. It just so happens that Jack-Man’s new weapon, the Philips Norelco Shaver 9700, is the perfect counter to Bath-Man’s strength.
“Shaving Bath-Man” also introduces a new jingle I wrote specifically for the Philips Norelco Shaver 9700, which is featured throughout the shaving scenes.
Unlike the 1st webisode which is mostly scripted, this new 2nd webisode was completely thrown together. You asked me last Sunday if we could do another Jack-Man video, so we did; pretty much right then.
I didn’t want to feature Green Meanie again in the following episode; in an effort to keep the story fresh. However, I didn’t have a good costume idea ready for a different villain.
So I thought, “What do I have in my closest that is the slightest bit unusual?” I remembered my gray bath robe.
From there, Bath-Man was created and I quickly whipped up a plot line, accordingly.
The overall storyline of Jack-Man will involve Green Meanie attempting to quench Jack-Man’s strength with sugary drinks and snacks, since Jack-Man serves as a threat to Green Meanie being as profitable if everyone knew how unhealthy sugary (and diet drinks) really are.
That of course leads to Green Meanie sending his henchmen to help defeat Jack-Man, as we see with Bath-Man, who is not necessarily emotionally involved with Green Meanie’s personal agenda of profitable off of people buying his drinks.
We make Jack-Man videos because you love doing them. You continualy ask me when we can do our next one.
Well, if all goes as planned, we will film Webisode 3 this weekend. You have made a special request to “do one where we just fight a lot.”
I can make that wish come true…
Also, your teacher sent me some pictures of you from school this week:
Jack was very busy in our writing center last week!
He’s been very aware of letter sounds and sounding out words!
He’s spelled everything from; cat, dog, mark, and more.
The one that made me laugh the hardest, was this funny conversation we had.
“Ms. Aimee, how do you spell booze?”
“I just want to spell it.”
“Ok, well, let’s sound it out….”
“Ok thanks, two o’s make the oo sound right?”
“B…. oo….z…. ok thanks!”
Oh I about died laughing.
He is also fascinated with the light bright! It’s such a fun way to increase fine motor skills. He kept making the cutest crabs.

Oh, this just in… looks like we might be filming a new Jack-Man episode sooner than we thought. Our neighbors saw our first 2 Jack-Man episodes and want to join in on the fun!
