Taking Action

April 12, 2006

PeepBaur

…”Peep” Bauer…

I should be posting something new about now, but I cant seem to focus on anything except the ongoing hostage crisis on Doug’s page.

I can no longer sit idly by and watch this travesty take place without trying to do something… so I have.

Good luck, Jack… and if this happens to go badly, (as your missions always do)… remember… I knew nothing about it.

The Comments

Don Jones

Jack is yelling again. He needs decaf.

Doug Jones

Jack is tracking the Peeps with the help of Chloe and satelites, but the President has him brought in for questioning and general roughing up. Jack is exposed to nerve gas but seals himself in the bathroom with the special rubber seals and flushes himself out of the commode where the Hostage Peeps are being held… and all this takes place in 10 minutes of REAL time… stay tuned….

Dennis Jones

…Doug, I can hardly wait for your next post to see what happens next!

Mason Jonez

Is that suit protocol?…….I need to be briefed.

Doug Jones

Jack wears bullet proof briefs… or is it boxers?

Jeff

Boxers by STA-PUFFED but they have Kevlar inserts

Dennis Jones

Chloe: Jack… satellite shows three peeps in the middle of the room… and a Jones over in the corner chewing on something…

Patrick Little (soon to be Jones)

Hey pops!! It was great to finally meet the man behind the conundrum that is Peter Jones!! You are a swell dad and I am glad to have met you, sorry to say that we didn’t get to hang out more and shoot the breeze, but I figured that your kids should hog ya seeing how you dont get down in their digs very often. Hopefully we will meet again sir! Smootches pops, Patrick

Dennis Jones

…well… I’m pretty sure that last comment is from my wife, Karen, who is in Germany right now… she’s the only one I know who could actually break the comment box on my page…

…and Patrick …you guys ROCK! …NORTH! …NORTH-ROCK! …no, wait a minute… NORTH! …whatever it is you guys choose to run with for a band name this month…

Jeff

He better look out for Microwaves… ever seen what a microwave can do to a Peep? They blow up huge.. Then the wife yells at ya for the mess thats left..

Don Jones

I wonder what the peeps would weigh on Dennis’ household food scale…

Doug Jones

I think he broke those scales a week ago while weighing a dead possum he found on the road.

Roballoo

This is the new Paris fashions? Better go buy one so I can look my best on Easter Sunday.

Dennis Jones

…if you buy one for Easter Sunday have someone take your picture in it so we can post it here on Brother Jones…

Roballoo

Hmmm…worldwide internet fame vs. world wide internet ridicule? Which one would happen to me?

Tami

Sorry to bust in on peep-fest, but I’m wondering if this woman is a Jones – If not, I think honorary membership is in order:

Don Jones

Tami, sadly no, she isn’t a REAL Jones but, I’m sure she would fit right in with us.

Don Jones

Who’s posting under my name? I didn’t enter the comment above… mmm… a ghost writer. This is getting weird.

Save the PEEPS!

2006_04_10_peeps1

aren’t they SWEEEET?

I am holding these Peeps hostage. Something really bad awful will happen to them unless my demands are met.

Demand #1

Unless I hear from all 8 of the visitors to this site, one of the Peeps will meet an untimely end. You must plead for the Peeps. All pleas must be made by 5PM… unless an extension is granted by Major League Baseball.

… and listen, I’m not kidding around here…

The Comments

Megan Jones & Mandy

Are me and Mandy two of those 8 visitors of the site????

Doug Jones

Hmmm… I KNOW Mandy is, or WAS a visitor at one time… but who is Megan Jones… sounds kinda familiar…

Dennis Jones

…please, Doug, please…

…send me one of them Peeps…

megan

I’m not responding to these Strong Arm tactics… oh, oops, looks like I already did…also looks like one Peep has already met his unfortunate demise…

Doug Jones

All 5 Peeps are accounted for at this point… but the one on the end is getting very nervous!

Nick Jones Everybody

Throw one in the microwave… give him the ride of his life, 10 times his original size followed by a bout of petrification….

Roballoo

I think this portends a big announcment by ol’ Jonesy. I’ll bite, what’s up? SocMo dolls for everyone? The first ever SocMo Retrospective at MOMA? Or FREE SocMo tatoos for all!

Dennis Jones

…I’m not comfortable with the way that Peep in the middle is looking at me in that condescending way of his… I say he’s the first to go…

Don Jones

Peeps give me the creeps. EAT ‘EM ALL!!

Roballoo

I think this portends a big announcment by ol’ Jonesy. I’ll bite, what’s up? SocMo dolls for everyone? The first ever SocMo Retrospective at MOMA? Or FREE SocMo tatoos for all!

Roballoo

I did not post again the same info just to inflate the numbers. But, I may have this time. Lord of the Peeps For all my peeps.

Doug Jones

Roballoo… I have experienced the same thing you did … I think. If I hit the refresh button to see if there is a new post, it asks if I want to resend last comment. If I refresh, it posts whatever I said previoulsy AGAIN. weird.

Doug Jones

CRAZY! Click on the “Lord of the Peeps” name above… a fun spoof! check it out!

Dennis Jones

…regrettably, over the past several years, I have personally been involved in several “Peeps” incidents just like this one… I fear it is already too late for most of them…

My Official Weekend Report

February 12, 2007

GreenMo1

…in the laboratory…

GreenMo2

…it’s …ALIVE…

This is my official weekend report as required by the legal division of BrotherJonesOnTheWeb. Why I am the only brother that has to fill one of these forms out, I do not know.

The weather has turned vicious here in Northeastern Indiana, and we are running low on fire wood. This, however, is not a problem for a manly woodcutter like me. I walked into my garage to fire up my manly chain saw only to discover that whoever used it last had knocked the chain off and left the saw in disrepair. I, (of course), was the last person to use my chain saw sometime last summer.

I put the saw back together, (a very manly thing to do), did a cold weather start on it, hiked into the woods behind my house and started cutting lumber. I then drove my SUV back to collect the wood, got it stuck in a snow drift, got it unstuck, and then made several manly trips back and forth picking up wood, hauling wood and stacking wood.

Then I made a sock monkey… another very manly thing to do.

The Comments

Don Jones

This morning on the news they were reporting that burning freshly cut wood from the ice damage was not a good idea. it needs to DRY OUT (for about a year). Otherwise, you are building up some serious creosote in your chimney by burning it. I suggest burning your dirty laundry for heat. Stay warm and cut down on your warshin’ at the same time.

Dennis Jones

sorry, can’t talk now… putting out fire in house…

Dennis Jones

…make that house fire… gotta go…

Don Jones

HOOK UP A HOSE! Better yet…. GRAB THE HOT DOGS and MARSHMELLOWS!!!

Doug Jones

great looking monkey! uh, great looking MANLY sock monkey, that is… I can read the expression on his face… it says, “I wanna move to Florida!” It got down to freezing for a couple of days here and I immediately got tired of winter. I actually had to put a coat on… can you believe it? Two days of cold weather is all I need. No sign of flakes so far. This is all good cuz I don’t have a chainsaw… or woods to go cut down trees in. but we DO have deer that were eating anything green in our flower garden yesterday…

Doug Jones

Hey… I was expecting to see Weasel Boy on the Grammys last night. What happened? Did you get bumped by Sting?

Dennis Jones

…WeaselBoy wasn’t even nominated for anything! …what’s up with that?

WeaselBoy

😦

Dennis Jones

…they’ve been predicting bad weather for us all week and last night our Severe Winter Weather WATCH turned into a Severe Winter Weather WARNING… fortunately, today we are no longer under that warning… we are now under a BLIZZARD Warning… whew!… I think we dodged a bullet on that one…

Dennis Jones

…hmm …they’re saying now that we are going to have white out conditions …I didn’t think they even made white out any longer… I mean, with computers and all, who really needs it anymore? …anyway, I looked out the window to see what was going on, but couldn’t really see anything…

Dennis Jones

…hmm …they just declared a Level 2 Travel Advisory… unless you are an emergency vehicle you will be ticketed if you are on the road driving around… but I am needing a Krispie Kreme Donut right now, REALLY BAD and there are none left in the house… that’s an emergency, isn’t it?

Don Jones

GET IN THE CAR AND GO NOW MAN!!! IF JACK BAUER CAN UNDO NUKLEEAR BOMBS YOU CAN GET TO WAL-MART AND BACK WITH DONUTS!!!

Dennis Jones

…I guess I didn’t realize how simple it is to disarm a nuclear bomb… but after watching Jack disarm one on TV last night I feel pretty confident that I could do it, too, in a pinch… if that situation ever arose here in Huntington… like in my neighborhood or something…

Doug Jones

If you could put one of those Nookier suitcase bombs on your driveway, it would probably get rid of your snow for you… and your neighbor’s snow… and your neighbor’s neighbor’s snow… and ….

Don Jones

Attention my brothers I’m planning on buying a couple of syringes of Sodium Pentothal for you next Christmas.

Doug Jones

oh, goody! I love it when we play “torture the brother!”

Dennis Jones

…I’m thinking Jack is going to have to kill his entire family plus a couple of in-laws to save the world this time…

Don Jones

and the little dog too!!!

Dennis Jones

…NOT TOTO!!!

Doug Jones

how much snow do you have???

Dan Lietha

If those of you in this ice-encased frozen zone are trapped in your house (that hasn’t burnt down from creosote build up in the chimney) and you have to wait for the ice to melt to rejoin civilization, check out this guy’s digital painting info blog: danidraws.com Great info!

Dan Lietha

Correction … check out this GAL’S digital painting web site: danidraws.com OOPS!

Doug Jones

I had just found this site recently myself… great information there!

Doballoo

I see she’s a D. Jones too. That does it I’m changing my name to Doballoo Jones in an attempt to monetize on my nascent illustration career

Dennis Jones

…ok, well now… where are we today? I started shoveling snow at the crack of dawn and did that for most of the morning… how much snow did we get you ask? …pastorally speaking I would have to say we had drifts at least 12 feet high… realistically more like 2 or 3… which is nothing to snuff at when you are shoveling it all by hand… so now I’m trying to catch up on work…

…I noticed the danidraws girls last name is Jones… she’s not a sister I’ve accidentally forgotten about, is she?

Dougaloo

Dougaloo… has a nice ring to it, eh? I don’t recall a sister named Dani… maybe one named Mani would be more like it…

Don Jones

How about our sister Norah? We’ve yet to hear from her since she hit the bigtime…

Computer On The Fritz

February 22, 2007

RodentProblems

…rodent problems…

I’ve been dealing with a rodent problem this week at my house. I didn’t even know I had a rodent problem until I hauled my computer into the shop on Monday.

The cursor was no longer functioning properly on screen, (which caused me to cursor several times as I tried to figure out what was wrong). We found out that my utilities folder had magically disappeared… which is really pretty weird… and also that my Logitech Scroll Mouse had fritzed out… darn rodents…

The tech asked me when I last did regular maintenance on my computer. I said… uhm, never. He reinstalled the operating system to correct the utility folder situation and I tossed the LogiTech Scroll Mouse in the trash. The cool thing about the reinstall is that I was running on the older “Panther” system but he put in the newer “Tiger” system for me… HOO HOO!

Unfortunately, now I’m spending most of my time playing with those little Tiger Widgets instead of working.

The Comments

Don Jones

I wuz starting to wunder what wuz up with yu… There’z nuthin’ like a new utiliteez folder and computoor systum to get one’s motor runnin’. “Get yo ‘puter runnin’… head out on the highway! Lookin’ for URLs.. or whatever comes my way…”

Doug Jones

I’m still Widgetless myself…. I was beginning to think you were buried under tons of snow. I had just enlisted Jack Bauer to organize a search team to find you and dig you out…

Dennis Jones

…I took my computer in on Monday and didn’t get it back until late yesterday, so I haven’t been on the internet all week…

Brother JONES… Now Computer Accessible!

Don Jones

I did not realize that Tiger Woods had widgets on the market. He’s into everything.

Dennis Jones

…didn’t Keegan make a widget of some sort?

Don Jones

Affirmative. I believe there’s a link to it from keeganjones.com. Pick up hostile at 1408 Brenthaven.

Nick Jones Everybody

less rodents, more monkeygrams… that’s what I say.

Dennis Jones

…I say… New For 2007… RodentGrams!

Don Jones

Nick Jones Everybody … sorry to see you got kicked off American Idol last night. Your rendition of “American Pie” was moving, and quite long.

Roballoo

I wonder if Steve Taylor was the cause of your computer problem?

Dennis Jones

…you caught me RobalLOO… I am a rabid Steve Taylor fan… have been for years… I got to see him live a while back at the Cornerstone Festival in Illinois… he can still put on a great show… I still sprinkle Taylor lyrics into my everyday conversation… “since I gave up hope, I feel a lot better”…

Roballoo

First rock concert I went to was Steve Taylor opening up for Petra. That was a blast. Cornerstone was an amazing experience the time I got to go.

Trophy Rolls Into Town

March 19, 2007

ColtsVan

…the Indianapolis ColtMobile…

ColtsLine

…Hoosiers standing in line…

ColtsCaptains

…ready to rumble…

As their way of saying, “thank you Dennis for helping us win the Super Bowl this year”, the Colts brought the Lombardi Trophy to Huntington last Saturday. Hoosiers lined up for miles to get their picture taken next to the trophy. Since it looks pretty much exactly the same live as it looks on tv, I opted out of standing in line, jumped into the back of the gym, snapped a long distance shot and headed on home… before anyone could catch me and tell me I couldn’t do that. Yes, I suppose I could have made a grand entrance, gone to the head of the line and signed autographs, but I’m just not that kind of guy.

The Comments

Doug Jones

No wonder the Colts won. They have number 58, SocMo Jones playing for them. He is so BUFF! Unfortunately the Titans have Pacman Jones on their team. A total thug… giving us Joneses a bad name. Wanna trade?

Don Jones

I think I read that SocMo was the Colts franchise player this past year. Dennis Jones No. 4 on the other hand was traded… to the Raiders for a Chick-Filet $1 off coupon.

Doug Jones

… that made me laugh out loud… stop it, just stop it…

Don Jones

I bet Dennis went to the gym thinking they were passing out “Trophy Rolls” and coffee. Picked that up from the subliminal message in the blog headline…

Dennis Jones

…mmmm …trophy rolls…

Doug Jones

dang.. made me laugh again. twice in one day. new record.

Doug Jones

Hey… I was totally bummed out when Rob and Amber were eliminated from the Amazing Race last week. In fact, I am STILL bummed about it. Anyone else feel this way?

Don Jones

I missed last week and was surprised they had gone down. From the recap it looked like Rob sort of blew a gasket with that sign deal.

Doug Jones

Rob misspelled a word on the sign… and spelling counted. He never caught it. A very good lesson here for boys and girs… study those spelling words.

Don Jones

Spelling and grammer are so importunt.

Dennis Jones

…man… I buckle down, work non-stop, don’t check the web site for a while and the next thing I know I’m running a fan blog for the Amazing Race… which is fine with me… it was disappointing to see Rob and Amber mixed up in that nuclear bomb drone plane incident and have to be eliminated by Jack Bauer last week, but hey, that kind of thing will happen sometimes…

TV Alert!

January 30, 2008

Mole2

Here are a couple of pictures from my Moleskine sketchbook. They are inspired by the tv show Lost. John Locke and the mysterious island monster which no one has ever seen. I’m pretty sure this is what the mysterious island monster looks like, even though I’ve never actually seen the mysterious island monster. Tonight Lost kicks off with last seasons finale, (I think) and tomorrow the season opener! …hooHOO!

The Comments

Doug Jones

Locke looks almost pleasant here… that could be a bad sign. I think you got the monster right… just add a lot of gnats… Finally something on TV I want to watch. I hope the new season does not have anyone named Hillary or Obama in it… I’m really getting tired of hearing those names… Hey… why doesn’t Jack Bauer run for president? He’s not doing anything these days…

Don Jones

Locke looks fresh and ready for the upcoming season. Beautiful renditions that get me hyped for the big show Den. I believe you and I are closer to the Locke hair-do than Douger.

Roballoo

If I haven’t been keeping up on the show would I be…Lost?

Jason Bourne

I can’t wait for the new Star Wars animated TV show.

Doug Jones

That flash forward on Lost is a real DOWNER! Wish they hadn’t done that…

Don Jones

Same here. I can’t wrap my mind around present, future jumpin’ around stuff. Give it to me STRAIGHT in an unadulterated sequential time sequence. I prefer to NOT THINK when I enjoy t.v.

New week, new picture…

For the curious among you, I showed up this week on the CCI website.

The Comments

Don Jones

Den, the way I see it…. those folks ain’t gonna visit ‘cause curiosity killed all those cats. Dig?

Doug Jones

Such a cute little girl… but I KNOW that she is really a double agent. We need Jack Bauer to “question” her a bit to get to the truth. I think she is emitting some kind of violet chemical agents into the atmosphere that will make everyone a mind numbed robot who will thoughtlessly buy up all the BrotherJones products collecting dust in our warehouse… hey… wait… cancel that call into Bauer…

Dennis Jones

…dontcha think the world would be a far safer place if only someone would lock Jacks daughter up in a closet somewhere…

Dan Lietha

I am honored to be 2 listings under you at the CCI web site! 🙂

Dennis Jones

…it’s the happenin’ internet place to be…

Jeff

She could be the pending offspring of Jack and the new FBI chick. Note even though she is smiling, her fists are ready to pound a crooked FBI agent. And how is it, the new FBI chick went through 24 hours of getting shot, stomped etc and her make-up held out??? Humm.

Dennis Jones

…I always get a kick out of looking back at everything that can happen in 24 hours on that show… a biological weapon almost explodes, then the white house is captured, then it’s retaken, the presidents daughter is appointed to the chief of staff position for an entire 4 hours before going down in corruption flames, Jack gets the snot beat out of him, is exposed to deadly chemicals but still is able to function flawlessly… amazing…

Doug Jones

Yeah… actually it is getting a bit tiresome. Someone is a bad guy… then a good guy… then a bad guy again… all in 24 hours…

Jeff

Sounds like my house.

The Weasel Has Landed

January 20, 2010

TaTonkaEngine2

I’m back in the country and happy to report that I was not involved in any sort of international incident this time… ok… there’s a tiny little video that goes along with this picture in my comments area below…

The Comments

Doug Jones

… but international incidents are so much fun!

Dennis Jones

…for everybody listening to your stories about them maybe… not so much when you’re smack dab in the middle of one…

Jeff

I have been watching 24, I can give ya good advice on how to get out of these “Sticky Situations”..

Dennis Jones

…well Jeff, as you know, we frequently have to call on Jack for help around here…

Nik

Awesome! That horse is really depressed.

Jeff

Yes but when Jack helps, Peeps get dead.. Why cant he just do something smoothly and slip away without killin someone??

Dennis Jones

…there’s nothing worse than watching Jack work over a Peep that’s been duck taped to a rickety old chair inside a dark cold warehouse deep in the inner city somewhere…

Doug Jones

That is on page one of the Jack Bauer playbook. But this time someone used it on him. Of course in 5 minutes he was fully recovered… and it takes me a whole WEEK to recover from a cold…

Jeff

We are nearing that time of year that all Christians love, but all PEEPS fear. Yes the Easter holiday. It is during this week that over 75% of all peeps loose their life to marshmallow bloated kiddies and basket raiding parents. The PEEPS need a man like JACK.

Dennis Jones

Jeff

Last year the Purple Peep was almost consumed to the point of extinction. Let us not forget that the Naugahyde craze of 1973 virtually destroyed the worlds population of Naugas. The rush on bowling alley furniture alone killed off the Avacado green nauga. If only Jack was around then to help those poor gentle woodland creatures.

Nik

We got word of Spartaweaselcus, I think he might be a great ally for Jack.

Jeff

Yes,, Jack and Spartaweaselcus..Working together for the good of the PEEPS,, Are you keeping up with our rantings Dennis??

Dennis Jones

…can’t talk now… mouth fulla peeps…

Jeff

I guess that rules you out for the Save The Peeps spokesman position..

Jeff

I do hear that Peeps are delicious when you melt them with a chocolate Kiss.

Nik

Yea,and make a Peeps Smores!

Jeff

I guess the N.F.L’s cash for clunkers program did not pay off this year..Sorry Bret. Go Coats

Nik

Congrats to the Saints first Super Bowl!

Esaulov Ilya

Excellent works! Very to be pleasant. I watch your creativity, I am inspired! Thanks big!:)

Kev_Brett

I LOVE your work!! So much so I want the See with me Bible for me – and I’m 32!!! Thanks!
