Welcome to yet another edition of On the Jazz, I have a number of things to bring up this issue, let's see if I can remember them all...

Dwight Schultz will have a guest role in this Friday's (3/31/95) episode of "Diagnosis Murder", which airs on CBS, 8 PM EST. So remember to check it out if you're a fan, I think he's playing the Bad-Guy-of-the-Week.
First the answer to last issue's question. Marla Heasley appeared briefly (and briefly attired) in the episode "Bad Time on the Border," as Cherise, one of the boat girls (or more aptly, "twits," as Valerie described them to me. Thanks Val :-)). Truly a memorable (not) performance.

This week I present the mighty trivia challenge

"Aliases 'R Us"

Can you identify which team members assumed which of the following aliases in the persuit of a scam? Can you also name which episode the alias was used in? Some of these are more obscure than others...

1. Joe Morgan
2. Colonel Bradley Lexington
3. Clarence Wilkinson
4. Sean O'Shay
5. Dick Nash
6. Ashley Hemmings
7. Volcano Johnson
8. Mrs. Murdock
9. Carlos "Blue Moon" Mendoza
10. Dr. Pepper

And the bonus question...
11. Donny and "Marie" (!?)
If you wrote either myself or Frank about the A-Team comic book offer, you should here back from him soon about how to arrange to get your copy (or copies) if you haven't already...I got mine this past week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The artwork wasn't especially great, but the three stories were really funny and there were some truly classic Hannibal & Murdock lines. And nothing beats having Mr. T take on a Sumo wrestler, one of those things that could ONLY happen in a comic book.

A number of people have sent me responses to the survey since I posted the results in February, or have asked me if they could still reply. The answer is yes! I will keep accepting surveys, in fact I now send out a copy to all new subscribers in order to get a general feeling for the opinions of our members. So go on and send them in, or ask me for a new copy if you need it. If and when I get enough new replies I will post modified results & comments.

I also wanted to post some updated information on the A-Team fanzine I'm working on, as it has progressed from a vague proposal to something that's definitely going to "come together." It's going to be called "Scams, Plans, & Vans" and is open for contributions on anything related to the A-Team: original stories, artwork, essays, reviews, filks (song parodies), etc. I currently have lined up about at least 60 pages of stories to be included by myself and other authors, and several information-based articles as well. As I would like to be ready to print the 'zine by mid-June/early July in order to meet summer advertising deadlines in various adzines, I will be accepting additional material up through the end of May, and would like to encourage anyone on this group that is interested to participate. Contact me through private email if you think you might be interested or have any more specific questions about the project.
Miscellaneous thoughts...

Last weekend I caught what I think was a repeat episode of "Renegade," and was much surprised and happy to see Lance Legault in a guest-starring role. The weirdest thing about the show was that he was actually playing a GOOD guy, I just had the hardest time not cracking up while watching him as this sweet old grandfather. Of course, I also kept having this sick thought about how cool it would be if suddenly he appeared in his old Decker uniform, with Captain Crane at his side, yelling, "Give it up Reno! I've been setting this operation up for months and now you're days on the run are over!" Well, it *would* have made for a more interesting episode...perhaps it's a good start for a 'zine story though...

Finally this week, I would like to try to start up some sort of discussion thread here, as unsuccessful as such efforts have been in the past...anyway, I was thinking that since this group is called "On the Jazz," what exactly does being "on the jazz" mean to you? Have you ever been "on the jazz" yourself? I'd like to hear what people think. I'll let this issue's quote from the "Labor Pains" episode inspire some thoughts on this topic.

Next issue, I have some interesting Mr. T bio information that I will try to have ready to present.

Until then,
Quote of the week:

"The jazz is all the Twinkies you can eat and Woody
Woodpecker cartoons 24 hours a day..."

"...It's sort of nature's way of putting your fingers
in a light socket.  Our problem is, [Hannibal] likes it."

                     --Murdock & Face from "Labor Pains"
