    Frock Coat 21?

    Hey Donnie!

    How’s your recovery?

    Maybe you can escape the century of your birth in one of these amazing 21st century frock coats! What do you think? Maybe ask Dr. Oscar if your health plan covers this?

      Thanks, Meg! On a technical and professional note – how did you attach your head to the robotic structure? Solder? Sellotape?

      • Meg O'Ryan 08:09 on 14/02/2014 Permalink | Reply

        Sellotape? Oscar, just because Donnie is from the 19th century, it doesn’t mean you have to operate on him with 19th century technology!

        Two words my friend: BALL JOINT!

        I’ve put up complete details for you here.

      Querida Meg, I was just at Mars myself! Dancing! I’m sorry I missed you.

    Neither Oscar, nor Donnie ever call me anymore. What’s up with that? I hope it’s not because of that Tilly Losch chick! What’s she got??


    She doesn’t speak?

    I always forget how infatuated Dummies are with the sound of their own voice!

    Narcissistic bastards.

      Oh, come now, Ellie. That’s a bit harsh! You can’t bully folk into correspondence. We’ve had a lot of stuff going on in the past week: Donnie was having nightmares about Ysidora and then his head fell off…Do you know how difficult it can be to reattach a head? And as for treating his nightmares…Well, as you can imagine, Donnie tended to seek comfort in a substance that, rather than soothe, seemed to amplify his fears.
      I’m quite tired right now.

      • Meg O'Ryan 18:46 on 12/02/2014 Permalink | Reply

        I’m sorry Oscar. We’ve already had this whole conversation and I already know you don’t like me that way and I thought I’d moved on, and honestly IDK what’s wrong with me. Gawd! I’m such a jerk! Feel free to just mute me or whatever. Or, haha, I guess you already did!

        IDK, I think I’m just lonely or bored or something. I’m sure I’ll get over it. I should get a hobby. Or maybe a cat.

        Oh, and I hate to ask, but if you could stop calling me “Ellie,” my name is Meg.

        • Oscar 02:47 on 13/02/2014 Permalink | Reply

          Dearest Meg Ellie O’Ryan, I’m really confused here…
          Is “muting” the equivalent of online sulking? If so, well, no, I definitely don’t want to “mute” you and I wasn’t deliberately avoiding you or ignoring you I was, just as I mentioned, otherwise occupied. (Crash course in First Aid. Further on this anon). You are absolutely not a “jerk” – you are full of fun and an insatiable curiosity about life and this is wonderful.

          With regard to the Ellie/Meg issue. I remember confiding in you that I wished “for purely practical/physiological reasons”, you were called Eliie” (this is an easier name for a vent doll to say). You replied that your second name is, in fact, Ellie and that I was welcome to address you as such. As this seems to no longer apply, I will, of course, address you as Meg. (Unfortunately, this sounds more like “Neg” from the mouth of a ventriloquist doll).

          I need to…er…tape up a few things here. But I’ll be back later 🙂

    Donnie’s World Tour!

    I kind of thought Donnie would be more of a U2 kinda guy… but he totally blew me away when he took me to see Tupac!

    Donnie kicks ass!!!

      Geez Tony, I was wonderin’ where you were hangin’ out! Great to see you turnin’ your tricks, kid. Trapeze, eh? I can still hear the applause for your tight-rope act in Niblo’s Garden…or was that some other guy?…

    Waiting for Donnie 

    Meg O'Ryan, with voluminous red hair and a green dress, stands in an airport arrival area holding a sign that reads "Donnie"

    Waiting for Donnie to arrive at SYD

    I sure hope Donnie arrives on this flight! You don’t think that tiny crack in the fuselage matters, do you? Travel as a disembodied head must be precarious. I sure hope Donnie’s ok and that my Tree Surgeon friend can help him!

    Meg O'Ryan waits at SYD airport arrivals with a sign that reads "Donie"

    Where’s Donnie?

      Sweet Meggie, you’re breakin’ my heart, kid. I ain’t on that plane. I just dunno how to reach you, sweetheart. Geez, Meggie, it looks like you live in some kinda perfect, magical world: all those clean lines and…how’d y say it – rendered? – yeah, glossy rendered surfaces…and I just dunno how to get my…er…well…my head around it…Aw, Meggie, I’ve got tears in my eyes. I feel like I’m really disappointin’ you kid. I’m real sorry I’m not there, kid. Real sorry.

    Could Donnie be in the Witness Protection Program!? 

    photo of a husband & wife & ventriloquist dummy

    Just came across this image on the wire… draw your own conclusions!

    • Oscar 01:41 on 27/01/2014 Permalink | Reply

      Oh, dearest Meg, given Donnie’s unfortunate penchant for the drink, it is more likely that he would be cast as the criminal rather than the witness in need of protection!
      However, thank you for this image – it may, in fact, provide a good lead. That Timmy chap might know something. Indeed, he may be hiding something…

      • Meg O'Ryan 12:59 on 27/01/2014 Permalink | Reply

        I hear you Oscar my friend. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something about that pinstriped suit that I just don’t trust…

        I hope you find Donnie very soon! (or that he turns up in Sydney! 🙂

        Hmm… maybe I should write “DONNIE” on a piece of paper and go stand at the SYD Arrival Gates?

      Meg, thank you for pointing my attention to this conference on the voice – I wish I’d been able to attend. I hope there will be follow-up online.

    Hey Donnie 

    Aunt Renie & Meg

    Aunt Renie & Meg

    Hey Donnie! Here’s a little pix of me with my Aunt Renie. Her best friend passed away suddenly and she was feeling a little melancholy, but then she decided to just go for it and enjoy life. She flew to Sydney to visit me. Here we are dancing on the Harbour Bridge. Where are you Donny? We should totally hook up sometime!

    • Donnie 01:29 on 22/01/2014 Permalink | Reply

      Geez, Meg, sweetheart, if I had an arm I’d offer you flowers…
      Where am I? Where am I? Between a rock and a hard place. A rock and a hard place, kid.

      Listen, kid, Oscar says he knows some fancy doctor in Paris who can kit me out with new arms and legs. New hands and stuff. But I sureas hell can’t afford the slow boat to Europe. Heck, kid, though, so I had this moment of – I dunno – prescience? drunken vision? of some guy – a wizard or magician or something in your neck of the woods who can make hearts and brains, movin’ parts – listen, kid, if he can make that stuff do you reckon you could ask him if he could make me a body?

      Oscar says there’s a map – some Goggly Googly thing – I dunno – and y’have t’ follow a yellow brick road to find this surgeon guy…

        You’re an amazing person Donnie. Some who haven’t gone through half what you have are just broken and bitter, but you sing love songs! I don’t care what anyone says about your raspy voice, it’s beautiful to me.

        Paris doctor? IDK Donnie. Oscar has some crazy stories about hunting for “une mécanisme”. These things don’t seem to end well. I know a good tree surgeon here in Sydney. Do you want to come convalesce? Or maybe you can reach out for other experts in your area. If you hear some quack say “une mécanisme” though… run Donnie! Get the hell out while you can!
