“My dearest Edith, today saw the sun shining and the fields of grass being mowed in preparation for the Tantonville Titans’ jazz ensemble performance. On the mound will be our top trombonist, Willie “Slide” Carmichael, so I am filled with great hope. If the ensemble goes well, we expect to capture the Pennawatty Pirates fort by nightfall. Capturing this fort will go a long way in ensuring the North wins the war. I hope to be home before the fall turnip harvest, but Cpl. Adamson says I’ll likely die in the 7th inning, running for a foul note. Still, I remain hopeful. Yours, forever, Kenny.”
Left fielder and third trumpeter, private Kenny Kennilson’s letter to his estranged wife is but one of the touching and written letters from the men of the Tantonville Titans First Battalion Jazz Collective. The first all white jazz group that saw battle in the great civil war. Unfortunately, they all died at the Battle For Penawatty that day, by a score of 9-2.
Isn’t that a touching story? If you’d like The Annekenstein Monster to continue with great stories, moving portraits like that, then I implore you to fake donate some money to The Annekenstein Monster right now. It’s simple to do. Compubots are standing by, over in the comments section of the Fake Pledge post. Just click there and type in your fake-pledge amount. Remember, no amount of fake money is too little, or too big.
I’m Rob MacDonald, owner and operator of this very site. We’ll be back to Ken Burns’ excellent documentary “Ken Burns’ Civil War Jazz Ballers” in a never, but before we never get back, I’d like to tell you a bit about The Annekenstein Monster, and why it’s so important for you to fake contribute to it.
Having thought about it, I’m actually coming up empty. Still. The compubots are standing by. And they do charge about $7.50 each per hour to stand by, so, I guess, that’s one reason to fake contribute…??
Thanks for your time, and now, back to “Ken Burns’ Civil War Jazz Ballers”, exclusively on The Annekenstein Monster…
I want “Lord of the Fake Dance” or I take my offer of a buck back. Your call.
7.50$ is a pittance. You will need to increase the pay to the compubots to roughly 12$/hour plus vacation days and benefits or you won't get a cent out of me.
